The Sims 3 + All Addons + Patch v1.67.2 - 8xDVD5 [CIU] [CUSTOMIZE]


+ All Addons + Patch v1.67.2 - 8xDVD5

Script by Yener90

Tested on Win7 x64 and retail versions of the game
Supportet languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Polish, and some more (read info)

Update: 25.01.2014 - Script compatible with game version 1.66.2
Update: 04.02.2014 - Script compatible with game version 1.67.2


################################################## #
First of all, read the following info carefully!

This is one of the conversions, that need many customizes by end user (you), because each language has a huge amount of registry lines and this is the point. For each language this is too much work for me by finish this conversion alone. Customizes are i.e. Game paths, Game titles, language ID's and some more. You will see this all in the Script. So before you go to make this conversion (and if you have already installed Sims 3 on your pc), go to your registry and keep your eyes open for Sims 3 language ID's, Game titles and so on and note this somewhere and paste these in the installer script.

And please, follow the instructions exactly to prevent errors or something else.

5. Open InstallerScript.iss and read the Note at the start of Script carefully.

6. Work through all points, especially in [Registry] section (hope you note your languages, read start of this topic)

7. And dont forget to write your own serials at #3 in [Registry] section

8. When you are done, compile script and wait for finish

Test this conversion before you do something stupid (like burn on DVD)!

..\World Adventures
..\High-End Loft Stuff
..\Ambitions

Yes, but if you add extra stuff (see start of script) 8xDVD5 is not guaranteed anymore (depending on size of extra stuff)

Smile Thank you so much

Thank you so Much for this amazing and hard work!
A lot of reg entries after and I made this work like a charm!

I create a main folder called "The Sims 3 Deluxe" to compress base game + all addons and DLCs

Then I have the following structure folder:

X:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Deluxe\

Inside this there are the game base and all DLCs folders.

I compressed too Electronic Arts folder from My Documents and all InstallShield folders.
I forgot to exclude Support folders.

So, I got 7 DVDs:

DVD1 = 4.37 GB
DVD2 - DVD6 = 4.35 GB
DVD7 = 491 MB

I'll share my installScript from The Sims 3 Brazilian Portuguese (PortuguÍs do Brasil) if somebody wants to use.
Only thing to do is to change the serials in Serial Section (XXXXX values to your keys).

Thank you again for this work and I hope to help too!
