Add pirated DLC’s to your legal The Sims 3 game [pack system]

Pack System: Add pirated DLC’s to your legal The Sims 3 Game for free
+ full access to the Gallery + the latest version

Again thanks to Anadius

When you have at least the Sims 3 base game via Origin  you can add pirated DLC’s to your legal game for free.

  • Always automatically the latest version (Origin updates it for you)
  • No problems with anti-virus (there are no cracks)
  • Much smaller downloads
  • Easier to add missing DLC’s for free
  • Possibility to switch out DLC’s when your PC is not capable to play with all DLC’s
  • Less problems with your CC
  • Access to the Gallery (no longer switching between legal and pirated versions)
  • Play via Origin as if you bought all DLC’s from Origin
  • Save a lot of disk space as you no longer need the cracked version

New DLC’s however must still be added manually (step 3), although much smaller in size.


In the undermentioned details we use as an example the folder C:\Program Files (x64) -> Origin Games -> The Sims 4
Depending on the language you chose for your original installation that folder could well be Les Sims 4, Die Sims 4, Los Sims 4, De Sims 4 or other.

Preparations in Origin

  1. Log in to your Origin account
  2. Click on the word Origin (left top bar)
  3. Click Application Settings
  4. Click Application
  5. In Client update:   switch “Automatic game updates” and “Automatically update Origin” on – see picture below.
    Now your game and Origin update whenever you start your The Sims 3


  1. Download a small file EA DLC Unlocker v2.
  2. Extract with Winrar
  3. Right-click on Setup and run as Administrator
  4. As this is a small .bat file you can’t use the mouse, so type 1 after Choose option Number
  5. When that is done, type 2
  6. Type 13 for the Sims 3
  7. Type Q to exit
When you right-click on setup to open as Administrator and typed 1 for the Install EA DLC Unlocker you should see

Configs folder created
Main config copied
DLL added
Origin detected.

As long as you don’t see that there is something wrong with the Administrator status and you get an error message.



Locate your legal installation-folder 

For Origin: Probably C:\Program Files (x64) -> Origin Games -> The Sims 3
When you still have a shortcut for your legal game, right-click on it and select Open File location.
You come in Your Installation folder\Game\Bin\Sims 3Launcher. Click on arrow-up and you are in Your installation folder\Game\Bin. Again arrow-up and you have found your Installation folder.

STEP 3 (To add missing or new DLC’s)

  1. Open the installation folder for your cracked game
  2. Select the folders for the DLC’s and copy these folders to your legal Game


Warning about torrents:
In some countries, such as  USA, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand,  downloads via torrents can be monitored by copyright holders and this can result in a warning from your ISP (Internet Service Provider). This in the end can lead to fines or even blocking your internet facilities.
When you download via torrents you better use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) or use our direct downloads.


Download via torrents (selectable) in Winrar format All DLC’s in 1 iso download
  1. Download the selectable torrent for DLC’s for the packs in winrar format
  2. Make your selection(s)
  3. When downloads are finished, select the .rar files
  4. Right-click on the selection and click Extract
  5. In the pop-up window search for the installation folder of your legal game
  1. Download the torrent for the all-in-one DLC’s
  2. When download is finished mount the iso
  3. Copy the folders of the DLC’s to your legal installation folder

Check the file location for your legal game

Sometimes users have created an installation folder that does not correspond to the settings in Origin.
When you start your game via Origin it will always lead to the folder as described in Origin and not to your self-made installation folder.
Consequently, added DLC’s in that self-made folder are not recognized.

  1. so I pasted sp05 folder to the The Sims 3/Game/Bin. Is it ok? Additionally, the problem is only with accessories. DLCs are discovered by origin normally.

  2. I tried the Selective Anadius Method to add all DLCs to my legal Sims 3 game on Origin. However, it did not work and I realized that the readme says it only works for the Steam version. I have bought the Steam version, but when I try to run TS3_setup.exe it does not give me the option to choose where to install, and it wants to put the DLCs in my Origin folder. How can I fix this?

    1. It works for Origin based game as well. The TS3_setup.exe searches for the installation folder of the Sims 3 but detects the Origin version.
      What you can do is download the DLC’s for the Pack System and add these to your Steam installation folder.
      Then run the DLC unlocker

      1. I am encountering the same problem I had on my first attempt (before I deleted everything and tried reinstalling). Only two of the packs, Into the Future and Island Paradise, show up as unlocked and installed in the Sims 3 launcher, even though all of the packs should be installed just the same. There was nothing wrong with the torrent so I don’t know why only 2 packs are working out of all the packs.

          1. They do not appear in the launcher at all, except for the 2 working packs (Future and Island).

          2. Thank you for your prompt responses, and I apologize that mine are a bit slow. I am going to try a different method, so no need to worry about helping me with this one!

  3. hello! i followed all the steps but can’t seem to find the cracked folder, i tried checking the same location where my sims 4 crack folder is located but it’s not there, it only lists the 3 DLC’s i already have

    1. When you only played the legal game you don’t have a cracked folder.
      You do have a shortcut for the Sims 4 on your desktop I presume.
      Right-click on it and select Open file location.
