Start your game without using Origin by selecting the The Sims 3 icon and without logging in when the launcher appears. On the left side of the Sims 3 Launcher, press the play button. Do not log in once you reach the main screen, where you may choose a town to play your game in. Instead, click the icon that looks like a house with some walls around it.
After starting the game, wait until you have internet access before you go online. Once you are connected to the internet, you will be able to log in to Origin and download content updates.
To begin your game, press the large circle button with a play sign on the left side of The Sims 3 launcher. After logging in, simply click on the word Origin in the top left corner to begin using Origin. While your computer is still connected to the internet, Origin has gone offline. You can now play The Sims 3 game disc software without connecting to the Internet.
How can I install The Sims 3 without using Origin?
Simply sign in to your Origin account, navigate to your Game Library, right-click The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, and select Download. Then, just start the game from within Origin.
"The Sims" cannot be played online; all Sims games are executable applications that operate directly on a computer or mobile device, necessitating a download or a disc. The only other option to downloading the game is to buy a physical copy of the game and install it from the disc. Electronic downloads are available for "Sims 3", "The Sims 4" and "The Sims Mobile".
Install The Sims 3 on a computer that does not have a disc drive. After you've downloaded the main game, go to the Sims 3 icon, then go to More > Expansion Packs (or Stuff Packs), go through the listings until you find the packs you desire, then click Download. These files will install more content that can only be accessed by entering a code that's found in the packaging of an expansion pack or stuff pack.
After downloading each expansion pack or stuff pack, go to your Downloads folder. You should see a file called "TheSims3.exe". Double-click this file to start the installation process. Follow the instructions that appear on screen.
Gameplay Your Sims may go out to the downtown section of the brand new planet, Bridgeport, in The Sims 3: Late Night. Dive bars, sports bars, a local drinking hole, dance clubs, poolside clubs, disco clubs, exclusive lounges, vampire lounges, and fusion lounges may all be found in the downtown area. There's also a casino if you happen to be into that sort of thing.
There are three different themes to choose from when creating a Sim during late night hours: Disco, Club Sim, or Vampire Lounge. Each theme comes with its own set of props and decorations that can be used in your scene. You can switch between themes at any time by clicking on the picture of the corresponding Sim. They're not active until midnight though, so you won't be able to use them until after 10 p.m.. If you decide not to wait and click before midnight, the theme will still be chosen for you automatically.
The game will warn you if certain objects cannot be placed in a specific room. For example, you can't place a piano in a disco club room, but that doesn't mean you can't have some fun trying.
You may want to use the Random Room Generator tool to change up your scenes every now and then. This is especially useful if you plan to let your Sim sleep in different rooms each night.
Bridgeport has several neighborhoods to explore outside of the main city center.
