Understanding Version Numbers

Here are four examples of a game version and their breakdowns:

GameVersionBreakdown.png

The game version, as a whole, identifies a very specific release. In the example above, they are:

1.0.631.00107 = The Sims 3, version 0.631, compatible with 0, Worldwide release

2.3.33.003001 = The Sims 3: World Adventures, version 3.33, compatible with 3, North America release

3.2.8.005002  = The Sims 3: High-End Loft Stuff, version 2.8, compatible with 5, Europe release

4.2.32.007017 = The Sims 3: Ambitions, version 2.32, compatible with 7, Worldwide release


Product

Every game, expansion, and stuff pack has a unique product identifier:

  • 1 = The Sims 3
  • 2 = The Sims 3: World Adventures
  • 3 = The Sims 3: High-End Loft Stuff
  • 4 = The Sims 3: Ambitions
  • 5 = The Sims 3: Fast Lane Stuff
  • 6 = The Sims 3: Late Night
  • 7 = The Sims 3: Outdoor Living Stuff
  • 8 = The Sims 3: Generations
  • 9 = The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff
  • 10 = The Sims 3: Pets
  • 11 = The Sims 3: Master Suite Stuff
  • 12 = The Sims 3: Showtime
  • 13 = The Sims 3: Katy Perry's Sweet Treats
  • 14 = The Sims 3: Diesel Stuff
  • 15 = The Sims 3: Supernatural

Major & Minor

The major and minor version numbers really do not mean a whole lot on their own except that the higher the numbers, the more recent the patch with the major number taking precedent. For example: 1.0.631 is older than 1.15.34 because 15 is greater than 0. The major number often changes with every patch released whereas the minor number changes whenever they test a new build internally (usually does not reach the public).


Compatibility

All products installed should have the same compatibility number. The compatibility number is sometimes refered to as the "game level."

  • 0 - Literally null and appears as "00" instead of "000."
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5
  • 6
  • 7
  • 8
  • 9
  • 10
  • 11
  • 12
  • 13
  • 14
  • 15
  • 16
  • 17
  • 18
  • 19

See table below for details.

SKU

The SKU is broken into three components, each corrosponding to a digit. From left to right, they are Beta, Protocol, and Region.

Beta

A boolean value of 0 or 1 where 1 indicates it is part of beta testing for the patching protocol. This was only seen once on region 7 when the game was originally released.

Protocol

This is likely an EA Download Manager/Origin version number which the application can check to make sure it is capable of handling the patch. There's only been three values given:

  • 0 = Standard patch seen on the first patches through to some today.
  • 1 = Special patch seen only on region 7. It may indicate that the patch is intended for in-house testing only.
  • 3 = Final patches to expansions and stuff packs. It is assumed that EA Download Manager/Origin is not supposed to look for patches when the installed protocol is set to 3.

Region

For a full list of languages included for each region, see Sims 3:Regions.

  • 1 = North America
  • 2 = Europe
  • 3 = East Asia
  • 5 = Japan
  • 7 = Worldwide
