I'm about to start crying right now. I am trying to reinstall Sims 3 on my new laptop, and all the expansions I own are registered to my dmel25 account on Origin EXCEPT Sims 3 Late Night, I don't know why it isn't, but I have my physical copy of the game. Well, my laptop doesn't have a CD drive for me to install Late Night so now I can't install it. I have contacted EA and they keep telling me I need to verify the account and email that used my old code, but I can't because I don't remember what that was, I was given Late Night as a Christmas gift 11 years ago and just remember installing it on my computer. So EA keeps telling me there is nothing they can do about getting me my game code back and now I can't play my favorite Sims 3 expansion. I don't want to have to buy it again when I own it already and I am about to start crying honestly.

  • I did not mix up these accounts. I gave EA all my emails I have used in the last 10 years and even my parents who bought me the game and they said none of them were connected to the account that the game code was used for so I am at a loss. :(

  • This would be very nice. I would be forever grateful if a wonderful member of this community found it in their heart to buy me a digital version of Sims 3 Late Night, I have seen such acts of kindness here before but I will not ask anyone to do such a thing, especially in these hard times.

  • This whole thing is just frustrating because EA decided they wanted to go digital with Origin, I own the game and it feels like they want to screw me into buying it AGAIN because I can't use my old code. What makes it worse is I have Sims 3 World Adventures as well in a physical copy and I was able to register that to my…

  • I don't. Well, I do.. but I had to upgrade my computer and my friend didn't tell me that it was going to wipe my C Drive so I lost everything Sims related..

  • I do! I talked to a few EA help people and gave them the code for the game I own and they said it is owned by an account and that if I can verify the account they can give me the code back. But I don't remember the account they are talking about, I just remember installing the game to my computer 11 years ago straight from…

  • You make valid points, but that doesn't change the fact that EA needs to make a patch, or someone make a mod, where during the day if a vampire is in the sun they instantly run to get indoors and out of the sun so they don't burn to death. Kind of like the way vampires in Sims 2 would run away saying, "Ah, the sun! I must…
  • This attitude right here is what's wrong with the Sims franchise. Knowing that the stuff pack is going to be garbage because it's only $10 and being okay with that. That's how EA is able to get away with milking us for every penny.
  • I think what she means, is vampires aren't stupid and they won't try to go outside and use an object when it's daytime and thus die in the sun. Or if they travel somewhere they immediately run to get inside to get out of the sun, rather than stand around burning up. I wish vampires, if we aren't currently playing them,…
  • I wouldn't want witches to be immortal by default. But it would be cool if they could learn a spell that lengthens their current life stage. That way they theoretically are immortal, but it isn't by default like how vampires are.
  • Inna Cent.... not very subtle at all now is it...
  • I remember reading in the Did you know thread that when sims are changed into vampires their age bar changes to say Days lived and it keeps counting up.
  • So you can't set their age number? Like vampires don't age up anymore but their age thing counts the days they have lived. I was wondering if you could change that number in CAS to make it seem like the vampire has lived a long time.
  • Here is a question. If you create a vampire in CAS, can you set their age? I know that's such a small trivial thing, but like I am wondering because say you wanted to create an ancient vampire who was like 500 years old or whatever, can you set their age to be that? Or does it just create the vampire at whatever age group…
  • Thank you for the responses. I really which there was a way to set the pregnancy cooldown to longer for just vampires hahaha. Oh well, thanks again, I'll probably just disable vampire pregnancy so they are all sterile and then turn it back on if I want them to be able to have babies.
  • Yes I know, but his dark form in-game is different from the one in the trailers.
  • They are not the same. In the trailer he has a less skinny face and small nose and his eyes aren't bright blue in his dark form like the one in-game. So while they may be the same character, they are not the same looks-wise, which bothers me because the trailer one looked a lot better in my opinion.
  • You could do it where the vampire is like the founder and they continue to live forever as their descendants live their lives. Eventually it would get to the point where like the descendants really wouldn't know the vampire is their ancestor.
  • I don't think the trailers are backstory so much as they are just showing us how the pack works. I mean the Nosferatu looking vampire isn't even Vlad, or at least they don't look the same.
  • I was under the impression there really was no backstory for the premade vampires in Forgotten Hollow. I mean Vlad is the traditional old school vampire, and he has obviously lived in Forgotten Hollow awhile, and Caleb and Lilith are more modern vampires, and they probably moved into Forgotten Hollow well after Vlad did.
  • That's pretty cool. Two forms of immortality coming together.
  • Here is the real question though. What will she once he's gone????? Live forever alone??
  • But why what? Why do did I not like how Sims 3 vampires aged? Because that makes no sense. Vampires are known for being immortal and never dying of old age, like that's their whole thing that makes them appealing, or one of the many appealing things. Therefore, I disliked how they aged in Sims 3. I mean yes they lived a…
  • Okay cool. Thanks for answering my questions.
  • Do the randomly generated vampires have the perk vampire creation?
  • Thank you Zafireria, that's exactly what I wanted to know. Well actually now I have another question hahahaha. Are the vampires that are spawned able to turn sims, so like if my sim asked them to turn them they would be able to or would they not have that ability?
  • See that isn't a randomly generated NPC though. That's one of the 3 starter vampires from Forgotten Hollow, at least it looks like him. I'm wondering if they create new vampires in each world so there is one in each or something. Or do we only have the 3 that come with Forgotten Hollow.
  • Oh okay. That's cool, so like service sims can be vampires, but premade sims in the towns don't get turned into a vampire by the pack just so there is a vampire in the town.
  • @SimGuruNinja Maybe you could clear this up. Or is it a surprise kind of thing?
  • Well he's already thirsty to begin with.
  • I hated that vampires aged in Sims 3, that was one of the biggest disappointments about them. In Sims 2 vampires did not age past the day they were bitten, even if they were a teen so you could have a teen vampire forever which was cool. I'm glad they went back to them just being immortal without having to buy a perk.
