Game Update 1.63

It’s here…Patch 1.63.

As with all patches, PLEASE remove your mods folder if you use one.

Before  installing an Update for The Sims 3, an Expansion Pack, or a Stuff  Pack, it is a good idea to run through the following checklist to ensure  your game continues to work smoothly. If you have any questions  about the below steps, please visit the Technical Support forum on the  official Sims 3 community found at this URL:  http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/forums/show/10.page
Step 1: Disable Custom Content Custom  Content is all Sims content that did not come from an official The Sims  3 Update, The Sims 3 Store, Expansion Pack, or Stuff Pack. Custom  Content is created by 3rd Party Developers that are not regulated by  Electronic Arts or The Sims 3 Development Team and may not work with new  updates. Custom Content may cause the game to behave unexpectedly or  not function entirely. To disable your custom content, undo whatever  you did to install this content to get your game back into an unmodified  state. If you placed it in a Sims 3 directory folder, move it to a new  folder that is outside your Sims 3 file directory. Your Sims 3 file  directory can be found using the paths listed below: Windows File Directory: C:\Documents and Settings\USER\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Mac File Directory: User/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims/ Once  you have installed the official update you may re-enable your custom  content. If you experience problems, disable it again until the 3rd  party developer updates their content to work with the official Update,  Expansion Pack, or Stuff Pack.
Step 2: Back Up your Save Files It’s  always a good precaution to back up your save files before installing  an Expansion Pack, Update, or Stuff Pack. To do this, copy the “.sims3”  folders found in the Saves folder onto your desktop or another file  directory. Your Sims 3 Saves folder can be found using the paths listed below: Windows File Directory: C:\Documents and Settings\USER\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves Mac File Directory: User/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims/Saves After the Update is installed, run the game to verify your saves still function correctly.
Step 3: Let the Update Complete Entirely Updates  can sometimes be rather large and may take a while to download and  install completely. Cancelling the update before it has completed may  cause unexpected problems, so it is always best to let it finish  entirely. Do not close the Launcher until you have confirmed the update  is completely installed, as this will cancel the update.
