Current Patch Versions Level 015 (OSX)

  • Patch 1.31.118 - released on Mar 01, 2012.
  • Based on this Changes from SOP starting from 1.22 note, looks like there won't be any separate patches for any packs anymore. So what does this mean? The skuversion.txt of your EPs and SPs would show the last patch you applied to it, or its original retail version. For example, my Generations is at "GameVersion = 8.0.152.011001". But, Launcher will tag on the level numbers so it becomes "8.0.152.013001" in the Launcher screen ("9.0.73.013001" if you have Town Life), to match the base game's level (see Level column in Game Help:Patch_Table).
  • Version.tag would show your true Base Game's gameversion, ie
 [Version]
 LatestBase = 1.31.118.015001
which would match your Base Game's icon in Launcher when you hover over it and your skuversion.txt file. To verify the patch really did update your game and completes the full process, you can verify that all versions in these 3 different areas are identical: Version tag == Launcher's BG icon == BG's skuversion.txt (info.plist for Mac OS X)
  • If you're using Launcher (well, if you're using Launcher, you wouldn't be here, but just in case you guys read this anyway), and it stalls after patching to 1.22, you can Force Quit (Cmd+Alt+Esc) and then let Launcher restarts itself to prompt you that now there is an update to 1.24 available. If it doesn't auto-restart, just start it manually from your Alias.
  • Select one, either the Incremental or the SuperPatcher, not both!
    • Incrementals would only patch from the previous version stated and is Region-specific. Choosing an Incremental from the wrong Region or the wrong "_from_xx.xx.xx" file is how most "Invalid File" errors occur.
    • SuperPatcher is cumulative update and contain all fixes from 1.2 onwards. If you're the type who reinstalls a lot, I'd recommend just downloading the SuperPatcher.
      • And anything goes, ie would work on any previous version, though it is still Region-specific for OSX (unlike the Windows version).
      • However, I cannot confirm this personally as I don't have Digital Download versions or bought DVDs of different regions.
      • So, if you have been downloading the Region 1 versions from past links I posted but you do not have a Region 1 game, and the game works; I appreciate if you'd let me know.


Warning.gif Read before proceeding!

Publishing the patch links below is by no means an endorsement that the updates are OK. Usual precautions apply, make backups, wait for mods to be updated, play on new user files while waiting for CC/mod updates and so on. There are reported Slot issues with CC, so if you have Contests, Challenges or Projects deadlines of some sort, you might not want to update at this time.

If you do decide to update, make sure you have made a BACKUP first! If you don't, some of your custom content may not work, which means your Saves won't load after you've saved with borked CC, at the next load time! You must also get updates from the creator(s) for any hacks/mods before playing an updated game, unless you are starting a game from scratch, ie new User files.


Warning.gif As recommended time and time again, make sure you have read TS3 Patching:Before You Begin so you know how to backup and what to backup.

EllaMeshTutorial 10.gif Reminder:

Ensure you have done a backup of the game and the patches before patching, as there is no other way to revert to previous patch versions once you have patched up in OSX. Instructions in How to back up a game patch under OS X
