[edit source]

I have noticed some strange issues occuring with the logo. I have uploaded a new version which is a higher resolution and the text is easier to see. Whereas it's updating when viewing the image, it's not updating on Origin. Is this related to the recent issues on the Wikia image server?

Sims 3 Expansions and Steam[edit source]

At some point in the past Steam acquired the remaining expansion packs.  I've updated the article to reflect this.  My Sims 3 profile shows I own all the expansion and content packs and they were all purchased via Steam then registered on the Sims 3 site after the fact.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Shinji257 (talkcontribs) 16:33, December 26, 2012‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Screwed up[edit source]

I have played Sims 3 for 29 hrs, according to Origin. One day I clicked on the Sims 3 icon and waited for it to load. Nothing happened. So I tried again. Nothing. What the heck?! I troubleshooted everything and ran as administrator- nothing happened. It took three days and two nights for that Sims 3 game to download! I want my money's worth!!

If you have suggestions, email me at My laptop is a Windows 7.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 19:01, July 2, 2013‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Sims 3 Launcher[edit source]

Whenever I start the Sims 3 Launcher, it always gives me the message "Unable to connect to Origin". Origin is running, why doesn't my game connect to it? Also, the Sims 3 Launcher indicates that I am online, so it is connecting to the Sims 3 site anyways. I usually just dismiss this message, and it doesn't seem to affect anything else, but it seems like a bad omen if Sims 4 is going to require Origin for installation.
