OK, I'll try it again and see what's up.    (edit; well I did everything that all you guys told me to do. This is the issue, the word ''backup'' isn't at the end of the file name; it IS the the file type and this can't be changed for some reason. that's what i've been trying to say, my backup file and game fies have the exact same names but the type of files is different, one says SIMS3 file the other says Backup file, does anybody know how to change the file types?Huh?Huh?

Just delete the word .backup while the game is not playing!
Tried it, won't let me:( I have Windows Vista.

I know how to rename files but it will still have ''backup'' as a file name! I tried to change the type of file in properties but I can't!!!!!

I have a family called Boston in my game. The file that the game uses is called SunsetValleyJackBoston.sims 3 The back up file is called SunsetValleyJackBoston.sims3.backup. All you do to make the game use the back up file is delete the first file and then rename the back up file. You just delete the word backup off the end of the file name. Then the game will use the back up file. I know this works because I have done it.
Thank you very, very much!!!! Just in time too Grin ''EDIT'' how do you edit the file cause it won't let me rename it or delete the word backup??? how do you open the file to change it???

I don't know if anyone else has asked this question but is it possible to make the game read the backup file??? I didn't know that when you overwrite a file a backup is created, so how do I get it to read?? thank you  huh huh huh huh huh edit; it doesn't even matter now cause the beautiful mansion that I built I re-built it better with some nice add-ons and a real nice but extremely tricky roof!!!! Also I tried something, I removed all the regular save files and left the backups and the game ''Did Not'' read them. So maybe they can't be read. oh well  Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided

Well, Sims 3 isn't perfect straight out of the box. That's a given for any software product to have bugs when they're released to the public. Sometimes there isn't enough time for the patches to be worked into the products when they're slated to be produced, packaged, shipped and stocked for sale.


Sure, I like Sims 3 better now that there are a handful of competent modders working together more or less to improve or even fix Sims 3.

Keep in mind that it takes time to develop patches and test them thoroughly before they are released.

I'm not saying it's the best game ever, but I'm saying that people like Rick, Delphy, Pescado, Inge, Peter and others are making efforts to develop new tools to do extensive modding for Sims 3 as well as developing hotfixes to address the serious issues in Sims 3.

Figured I would step in and say that not everybody dislikes Sims 3. I don't love it, but I do play Sims 3 and come up with ideas to improve the game in my own little ways.
Exactly. I do enjoy the game as I said before cause I can now play huge homes with no crashing, and thanks to the modders who are figuring out ways to bring out the ''true gems'' of the game. Without them there would be little to no interest in it.

My sister game does not do that though ugghhhh angry

Probably because she's playing on a different computer. EA isn't my cup of tea with all the things going on there, but not everything can be blamed on them.
Actually her comp is worse, cause after all her hard playing it shuts down and her windows self-deletes!?Huh?! I'm on a laptop and she's on a desktop!!!! The random shutting down I can't explain, but the game itself can use some improvements. For once they could've came to us with some input on how we wanted it, after all WE ARE the ones who spend to play  huh Wink

(laughing hysterically) kudos to that folks!!!!! I am soooooo close to uninstalling the sims3 cause my game may play a awhie good then PLOP!!!!!! My sister game does not do that though ugghhhh angry anyway mts has some nice stuff and I'm still looking around for other sites with some nice sims3 stuff( humping shoulders of unsurety Undecided) Sims2 is looking really good right about now shocked

(nodding head in agreeance) I too fell for this ''new and improved'' version. Don't get me wrong, I mostly enjoy the game cause I can play very big mansions with very little ease whereas on my sims2 I can not play without the ''crashing'' (SAD) but it also seems that after awhile this version also has a ''crash-like'' thing going on as well. And I'm very spoiled behind my cc- the lovely hair, furnishings, clothing, cars and so forth in the sims2. Not to mention the ability to have various types of weather and places to go and you can actually go INSIDE these places!!!!! The colleges and all the pets and stuff. The wonderful mods that all the different sims sites work hard to create so we can make our sims game actually OURS!!!!! There are good points to the 3rd version but mostly bad, and I'm speaking from my OWN experience with the game cause I have been playing it since it came out. That's what I respect about this site is that you can voice your opinion and still have respect for everyone else's! I can agree with both sides of the fence cause the scenery may be lovely and you can explore the entire town without loading, but I expected more. My sister paid $80.00 for the collectors edition!!!! You can download a car and get simpoints but that does not make up for the lack in the sims themselves. They may have real like features like the eyes and traits and moods but some of the life like items are missing. Look how the cars are now, the inability to actuall see what your sim is doing at work or even the store, only the gym is accessible!? You ca't really put a house anywhere and the 60x60 lots only have 3. Those are my personal favorites!!!! The hair and clothes SUCK!!!! No choice of which side you would like to put your jewelry on like sims2!!!? The hair has no bounce like sims2, no nails (ughhh) and the furnishings, what happened to all the good stuff?Huh?? Sims2 had all the best furniture you can possibly think of; and now some of it has to be bought from the sims store?Huh?? I enjoy what I can from this game but trust me until they start coming up with some sims2 items for the sims3 soon, me and the many others who are dedicated simmers will soon lose interest in the 3rd generation and gonna have to go back in time for some real sim satisfaction!!!!! Unless they come up with a way to ''fuse'' sims2 and sims3 into one huge game, but then our comps might explode from ''Bulls--t'' overload!!!! hahahaha
