@happysoldierr  In the launcher in the lower right there is a button that says install packs - try that.

@GMGamerGirl Have you had a response from EA yet? I got a useless response just telling me my code has been revoked, no solution other than "contact the retailer". I emailed EA again and told again to wait three days, which I have, no response yet.

Hi,

 

I've got the same problem with The Sims 3 Island Paradise, which is driving mad. I've tried everything people have said to do, so I did a live chat with someone from EA. They said its not down to them but the studio (Maxis?) to fix it and they are making a patch but have no ETA on it.

@Kyle4141  No, unfortunately, I have not had a response from the Terms of Service team yet.

 

I did follow up with CS again yesterday, but once the case is escalated>>then moved on to the Terms Of Service Team, you have to wait out the TOS Team looking into your particular issue.  Meaning, while you can attempt to follow up through the EA Help center and a tech adviser there, once the issue is escalated to the Terms Of Service Team, it's essentially out of the hands of the help team that we all have access to through the EA Help center.  (i.e.; they're two separate/individual teams)

 

If I'm honest, the responses that I've been hearing about through other players haven't been good at all.

 

But for others reading, and/or looking for a particular solution to an issue.....I don't want anyone to get the impression that my/one particular case is a blanket for "all" cases, as individuals may be having different issues entirely that may just "appear" similar to the issues specific to this thread.

Sims 3 Expansion Packs Missing

★★★ Newbie

Hi I am Just starting to play my Sims 3 game again and I'm having similar but slightly different issues. I have the base game as well as three expansion packs and one stuff packs, the stuff packs  and supernatural work fine, but pets and university life don't show up. In extra content it shows it is downloaded and installed, but when I go to play it, it's like they are not even there. I haven't changed my laptop, I have only the one account and nothing I have tried works. I have tried repairing the game, uninstalling and reinstalling I even tried reinstalling origin and nothing has worked. Can you tell me how I can get my expansion packs to work please?
