Hi, I downloaded the game from you a while back and it works great (thank you so much)! But i only installed some of the EPs and now that I'm bored with them I'd like to get rid of them and install some others, can I do this safely without uninstalling + reinstalling the whole game? Thanks in advance Smile

Yes, that should be possible.
Another option is to download the Sims 3 again via ZLOrigin. You are updated to the latest version where you can choose the packs you want to play with.

Hello,

Just make sure that there won't be any issues with uninstalling DLC content. There could be problems when e.g. your savefile was saved in a world that comes with an expansion pack (e.g. Starlight Shores = Showtime), and then you remove the expansion pack, then you won't be able to load your old savefile.

If your computer is strong enough and you have the harddrive space, maybe it's also an idea to just leave all your DLC installed?

Should you go ahead with uninstalling, don't forget to re-boot the computer afterwards.

Thank you both for answering!

I've changed my mind lol. Now I'd like to add Pets to the ones I already have (Island Paradise, Supernatural, Seasons, and Late Night which I'd like to remove). Can I just delete all my saves, uninstall LN and install Pets?
