have you tried the settings in origin go offline mode and play offline for that you just go to "Origin" and then choose "Go Offline" nothing to loose by trying that to see if it works that way you want it to

i've tried this and it worked for a short while, however it seems that with the recent update to the sims 3 base game we are no longer able to play offline.
I contacted EA and all they could suggest was to post to the Sims 3 forums and get the developers aware of our concerns with this in the hope they'll reverse this change.

After having the 'cannot play sims 3 offline' issue i contacted EA
They suggested I Go Offline in Origin
This didn't work
They then suggested I uninstall Origin
This didn't work
They then said that Origin is now tied to the Sims 3 and logging in to the client is a requirement to play the Sims 3 games
They also said to then contact the Sims 3 community for answers
I'm wondering if we can start something that will get the developers of Sims 3 aware that many of their fans don't want to/ cannot be online when playing Sims games for their own reasons - Also, I'd hate for this to happen when the Sims 4 launches so we better hurry up

Are your games download or disc versions?
All my games are disc and if I try playing while offline in Origin, it works perfectly.
And personally, I really don't think a rally would be necessary.

I can play offline with all accounts I tested with. I tried it with the download and the disc version and on several different computers.
What exactly do you get as an error message? What happens when you try to play?
