New The Sims 3 Game Update Prevents Sims Getting Stuck In “Grab a Slice” Interaction On Pizza, More

A new game update has been released for The Sims 3, which includes the following fix:

  • Base Game: Fixes an issue that causes Sims to get stuck in the “Grab a Slice” interaction on pizza.

(You can see the rest at the bottom of the full news page – click “Read more” if you’re not already there)

As usual, they recommend you follow their “check-list” before updating, which you can find by clicking below and finding the post called “Game Update for: 1.11/2.6/3.2” – remember that the file directory in Windows Vista and Windows 7 is, by default, C:\Users\USER\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 (the directory they specify only applies to Windows XP):
> News at (UK)

You can get the update by going to the Game Updates tab in your game launcher, if you’re not prompted to update automatically.

If after updating you get some sort of “code version is incompatible” error, SimGuruHydra has got you covered – scroll to the bottom of the full news page for the details.

There’s also a small update for the Create a World Tool, bringing it to version 1.6 (still beta):

Create a World – Updating compatibility version of Create a World Tool – Beta to be compatible with The Sims 3 to ensure it continues to function with in-game features and the Exchange.

You can apparently get that through the game launcher too.

The rest of those game update fixes:

  • Base Game: Fixes an issue where Sims continuously perform the “Be Invited Inside” interaction on other Sims’ lots.
  • World Adventures: Fixes an issue that causes the game to freeze when attempting to save a household on a base camp.
  • High End Loft Stuff: Fixes an issue where the family inventory loses functionality after using the Create a Style tool on an object.
  • High End Loft Stuff: Fixes an issue that prevents the fulfillment of the “Buy a Video Game System” wish when buying the “GUGA JoyToy 3” and “Console 7” video game systems.
  • High End Loft Stuff: Fixes and issue that prevents the “Presenting the Perfect Private Aquarium” Life Time Wish from counting fish in fish aquariums.
  • Shop Mode Update: Fixes problems caused by the font and updates the In Game Store to the latest EA Webkit version.

“Code version is incompatible” help:

If you are running into an issue after installing the March Update stating the code version is incompatible, and all products are completely up to date, try deleting the Version.tag file located in your My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 folder. This file will be created again upon starting the game.
