Hello everyone: I am new at this and the game If I make any error please feel free to inform me. I love the game and I just realize their are more expansion packs and I plan on going out and buyig these. I am missing Unleashed and Makin Magic. Do I have to take out some expansion before installing Unleashed? Or will I have to remove them all? Teena

Hi Teena! Welcome to the Hullabaloo!

I think the answer is no, you can just install Unleashed on top of what you've got now; but we'd better attract the attention of an expert to make sure. Makin' Magic was the last expansion pack for The Sims so if you get it, it's definitely safe to install it last.

Welcome Tina, it's good to see an actual new user in the Hullabaloo. As Greg say you can install Unleashed with the other expansions.

This is how I'd do it:

1) Drag the Downloads folder to a safe place (Desktop or another folder outside The Sims folder). You also might want to make backup copies of your favorite Neighborhoods too.
2) Install Unleashed.
3) Try to run the game. It will probably ask for different CDs, including SuperStar. Give it exactly what it asks for!
4) Once your game actually runs, go to an unplayed neighborhood and play a little. If you've played in all 8 neighborhoods, just don't save!
5) Install Makin Magic.
6) Repeat steps 3 and 4.
7) Drag the Downloads folder back where it belongs. If you accidentally saved in steps 4 or 6, you can drag your Neighborhood backups into place too.
8) Play the game, starting in the unused neighborhood first, then your favorite houses and such.
