Please note: this is has been adapted to the new Origin client. 


Previously with Sims 3 games, each and every expansion pack and stuff pack had its own individual tile. It used to look like this:

After the update, you only have the base game showing:


New Layout


To find your expansion and stuff packs now, right-click on the Sims 3 icon and choose Show2016-10-26 17_38_07-Origin.png Game Details. Choose "Extra Content"  and you'll see them there. 

As you can see in the above screenshot, some EPs have different statuses.

  • Buy R199.95  (or whichever currency you might use) means that you do not own the game
  • Download means that you own it, but it's not installed
  • Installed means the game is installed

 To download your games, select download. Origin will then startup the normal downloading process for your game.
