If you were a big fan of Delphy’s TS3 Install Helper Monkey – there are over 14k “thanks” on the download page at Mod the Sims – but you’re running more than just the base game, you’ve probably been a bit sad the program hasn’t been updated for World Adventures or High-End Loft Stuff.
I have happy, happy, joy, joy news for you!
On March 1st, Delphy announced via Twitter that he needs testers for the next version of Helper Monkey: Helper Monkey v1.2.
This is exciting stuff if you don’t want to manually install all of that custom content you’ve been downloading.
Since it is in Beta at the moment, don’t get all pissy if it breaks your game for some strange reason. However, I have installed it and the program works A-OK with my game and I haven’t seen anything wonky come from installing Helper Monkey.
Important things to note and you’ll know this when you read the detailed instructions on the original post: DELETE THE OLD HELPER MONKEY PROGRAM.
If you went up an expansion or Stuff Pack, the program probably isn’t working for you anyway so there’s no point in having it. Also, if you don’t delete the old program, you’re going to have issues with the new one…like the new one ain’t gonna work.
So if you’re into Beta testing and/or you miss the old Helper Monkey, I highly suggest you download Sims 3 Helper Monkey v1.2.
A tiny little side note concerning the links above:
- “download Sims 3 Helper Monkey v1.2” – that’s a direct link to the .exe file.
- “original post” – link to the actual post which include install instructions and a link to the program
Helper Monkey may or may not work with your current version of Sims 3. Be aware of this and you will not hold Sims 3 Gamer responsible if something breaks with your game.
