    Copy and paste your whole TSO Folder then you will have 2 copies of TSO, rename one like "TC3TSO" and use 1 for production cities and the other for TC3. I have 3 different TSO folders 1 for BV, 1 for TC3 and 1 for production cities.

    thanks again [​IMG]

    Ill do it twice as I play in BV too :)

    Does that save all the patching?

    Yes, when you have your 3 folders

    go into

    maxis/thesimsonline/TSOClient/ You will see TSOClient.exe right click and select create shortcut for each 1.

    Then you will have 3 TSO Shortcuts, play and patch each 1. E.g. patch 1 of them to BV, patch 1 to TC3 and patch 1 to normal cities

    Thanks for the walk thru about how to create the folders and shortcuts. I play in 3 cities (AV, BV and TC3) and get tired of patching between the 3. I created the 2 needed folders for BV and TC3. Now all I need to do is play each folder and patch to the correct city.

    Not just copied folder, but installed it again with the new download that defaults to /Electronic Arts/Ealand. So when I want to play in old cities, I run from old install that defaulted to /Maxis/The Sims Online.
