Why is my Sims 3 game taking so long to download?

Why is my Sims 3 game taking so long to download? Topic: Disc case size
June 17, 2019 / By Baal-Zebub
Question: I have been playing Sims for almost 2 years now. I Just got a new 4GB Asus laptop today and am wanting to download my Sims 3. It has been "downloading" for almost 20 minutes and is at 0% still. Can somebody tell me why it is taking so long? Or is it normal? I don't remember HAVING to download it through Origin, but i could be wrong. Uuugh, Please help! :]

There is a couple reasons why this would happen. 1. The game is has a lot of memory.( probably not the case, but could be). 2. There is a lock of some sort on the game and it won`t let you download it. ( possible) 3. The game size is very close to the capacity that your laptop can hold and it is taking up most of the memory on your computer. 4. If it is not an actual disc ( torrent or iso) it could most likely take a couple hours. Most torrents take a very long time to download. 5. If it is a disc, it could be scratched and you would probably have to clean it off if this were the case. ( I would recommend you use tooth paste to clean it, and even though it sounds weird, it works great. 6. There is something wrong with the download and you might just have to restart it. Hope these answers help :)

For you question, game developers are programmers who have to coding everything. The game designers are game interface designer who work on game interface. Game concept is the job for designers who think about concept, theme, characters, monsters and much more. For you details, you have to find out what will you have to study for each section. All colleges have the differences.

I think you may be confusing bits and bytes. There are 8 bits in a byte. Bits are usually referenced with a lower case b (Kb, Mb) while bytes usually are upper case B (KB, MB). Usually internet companies advertise their speeds in bits because it looks like you are getting faster speeds that way. Pretty much anything you download is going to show in bytes. Also, the advertised speed is the maximum you can expect, not an average. So, let's do some math: 6Mb/download (advertised) / 8 (to give you the MB equivalent) = 750KB (the max speed you can expect from ISP) Your speeds are a little lower than that and can be effected by multiple things including where the files you are downloaded are located (geographically). I don't know anything about ATT service but it doesn't seem like you are too far off from where you're supposed to be. Sorry. I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear. To get an accurate measure of the best speed you can get go to speedtest.net and view your results. Check it a few times at different times throughout the day. If you feel like you are not getting what you paid for give them a call and maybe they can come up with a solution for you.

In a nutshell, and this is definitely for future reference and for anyone else wondering the same thing. Your connection speed and download speeds are different because we're comparing bits and bytes. The easiest way to know what your MAXIMUM downloaded speed will be is when you are told your connection speed (In your case 6mb/s), take that number and divide it by 8. The number you get is 0.75, or in transfer terms, 750kbps which will be the MAX you will ever download on a 6mb/s connection. The fact that you're doing 600kb/s is pretty good (I say that only because consider the hundreds if not thousands of users on your individual network)
