New Patch and Create a World
Written at 20:52 by ChEeTaH - 0 comments.

Today EA released two things for the Sims 3: first of all there's a patch for The Sims 3 and World Adventures. The huge list of issues that are solved is in the patch notes. The patch itself can be downloaded through the Sims 3 launcher. Furthermore Sims 3 fans who are tired of Sunset Valley and Riverview now have the option to create their own brand new neighborhoods with the Create a World tool. The freebie is still in beta but it should allow you to get started at making a new town. The Create a World page has the download.

[Update 17 December] We've received information from EA that the new patch causes many problems, including the game not starting up anymore if the patch fails to install properly. If new information or a new patch appears to solve these issues, we'll let you know. Until then it may be better not to install the new patch.

It's Christmas eve, time to take a little time off and celebrate the season. Whether it's playing the Sims, watching TV, playing games or just being with your family and friends, we hope you'll have a good Christmas day tomorrow. If you are going to play the Sims, consider giving your Sims a special holiday treat with Rosana's set of Christmas items - including a brand new pattern for your Sims 3 game.

Once again, happy holidays from The Sims Zone!
