I recently formatted both my wife's and my computers and installed Ubuntu. I couldn't stand having to update AV software subscriptions (I don't like free AV software, they all suck) at least once a year.
When I did this, I didn't think my wife would play Sims 3 again. She hadn't played in over a year.
Yesterday, she decided she wanted to play again. I knew about wine already, I used to run Fedora on a different PC and used it to play WoW and FFXI.
However, I stumbled upon this software and I have to say, it's pretty sweet. And the supported number of games is astonishing. And to my amazement, Sims 3 and a few Expansion Packs and Stuff Packs were on the list of supported software.
So I went ahead and installed the EPs and SPs that were listed.
However, my wife has everything up to the 5th Expansion Pack (Pets) and the 4th Stuff Pack (Town Life).
To my dismay, those aren't on this site. So, being the programmer I am, I decided to modify the already existing scripts. It wasn't too difficult and did the extra 3 EPs and 3SPs in less than an hour. Full credit goes to NSWL & GNU_Raziel.
I still have to test them, but I'd like to share the on here. They all look the same, just a few changes such as titles and executable names. The biggest change I did and I modified the wine version to 1.4.1, which is what the recently updated "Sims 3" installer uses. I believe the older EP and SP installer scripts should also be updated to use 1.4.1, but that's just a guess.
NOTE: I didn't know how to format the scripts in way as seen in this thread for example: http://www.playonlinux.com/en/topic-2605-script_Mafia.html
So, I did formatted the thread to something of a similar nature.
Here they are.
