I don't think so. When it runs stuff it says where it is, so what if it looks in the place it was before I moved? D:

Wait, you want it in an Usb so you can play it? I doubt a USB pen has the required space to have it installed on it. Only a external disk can handle that I think. Though it depends of the GB your pen has, and how much SIMS3 requires of space.

Righttttt. Don't worry about it. I think I'll just stick some other stuff onto it instead, then.

Thanks anyway.

It'll fit on a USB. I've done it before.

-Find the 'Electronic Arts' folder in your Library.

-Click it, then click again on the Sims 3 Folder that pops up.

-Quite a few files/folders will show up, containing current sims, current game, screenshots, etc.

-Copy EVERYTHING onto your USB. Anything you might have from the store, custom content,etc., or those things will all disappear from your game.

-Done

If you have a ton of shit on your computer you should see about doing a cleanup to remove the duplicate files and files you don't need.

Download WinDirStat if you want to see exactly what is taking up space. Makes finding and deleting easy.








PM me if you need anything.
