    Hi EA Mai, I wanted to know if you were able to change my username to my username on my origin account RealBamahi or just Bamahi, if you can it'll be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I’m seeing you interact with the forums and it’s so great to see. Well done and I hope the other employees follow suit. Especially communication and transparency between Gurus.

    Hi EA_MAI,
    Can you please help me, how do I change my Sims 3 username on the below website? https://www.thesims3.com/home.html
    My Sims 4 references my Origin ID which I am happy with, however my Sims 3 account does not. I have a few different Game Specific Identities that I would like to update/ rename.

      Names on the old The Sims 3 site can't be changed like they can here on this site.
    • EA_Mai
      EA_Mai
      Hey PolarWolfie, welcome to the forums!
      lisasc360 is right (thanks for explaining!) - it's not possible to change your username on The Sims 3 website I can't help you with that.
      For other games (other game specific identities) this might be different, but it would depend on the game - you might want to search or ask in the forums for those games (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Answer-HQ-English/ct-p/AHQ-English)
  • MyHeartIsaStero
    Heya, I was hoping that you might be able to change my game identity from this to my origin id name (Anapropriate) thank you very much!

      Hi stargazer2020 - best is to ask that in 'The Sims 3 General Discussion' >> https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/categories/general-discussion-en
      You can use the search to find a similar topic where to ask (but try to look for something that's not years old).
      If you can't find anything similar, try asking here: https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/893122/thread-for-new-members-to-post-their-sims-3-game-issues

    Hello! I'm sorry to bother you, but I was hoping you could help me? I was just wondering if there was any way to change my forum username to match my Origin ID? My Origin ID is ofDionysus, currently.

      Hi ofDionysus!
  • CHLOELUNDY
    Hi, Mai 🙂
    I’m a newbie to the forums, so I’m not sure where to post my question. I’m building a new PC and I want to be able to run Sims 3 with many expansion packs and a lot of Custom Content, very well, on high settings, so I’d like to have recommendations from those who are still playing Sims 3 now in 2020, about the newer graphics cards, and the types and storage sizes of hard drives, Windows versions, etc. which are allowing them to play Sims 3 smoothly on a PC.
    I did play Sims 3 for ca. six years, on a very good computer, but the only time it ran perfectly, was before I started installing expansion packs. I scoured the forums back then, to try to get my game to run smoother. I used all of the tricks in the book, but I still had Error Code 12 coming up all of the time.
    If you could direct me to the correct forum, I’d appreciate it 🙂

    Hi, I am hearing online that you can do name changes? Is this possible for The Sims 3 forums as I am using a new username: Yodgje.
    If you could change it that would be amazing, Cheers!

      EA_Mai
      Hey darkbluedreams, are you talking about the name you see for 'The Sims' in here?: https://myaccount.ea.com/cp-ui/aboutme/index
      If so, no, that's something we can't change. However, unless you use The Sims 3 online services, that username is not being used by The Sims 4.
  • jadeiam
    Hi Mai! I am so hoping you can help me, I'd like to change my name on this forum to jadeiam (so it matches my origin and game gallery name) Thank you in advance x

      Hey glittrgoblin, I can't change your Gallery name for you, but you can change your EA Account ID here, which will change your name in the Gallery as well: https://myaccount.ea.com/cp-ui/aboutme/index
      Keep in mind that if you change your username previously uploaded content will still show your old username.

    I figured it out. But now the other question lol why can't I make the signature longer like I used to have it? I can only fit the bit in that I have now. I appreciate all the assistance :)

    Hi! I am so sorry to bother, but I was wondering if The Sims 3 was still being updated to a 64 bit version that would allow Mac users to play on Catalina? It is okay if there is no release date yet, but since the last time we heard from it was in October 2019, it would be nice to have a confirmation that it is still a project that you guys are working on. I think that many of us Simmers have began to lose hope about playing The Sims 3 ever again... Thanks for your reply, and have a great day!
