Game not recognizing downloaded neighborhoods. [SOLVED]

Post by gittelbug on Mon 25 Feb 2013, 16:28

Hey,
I just updated to the newest version of the game after installing 70,80,90s stuff (via the crack). I also downloaded Aurora skies, and Lucky Palms. But my game is not recognizing that i have them. I had hidden springs and the other neighborhoods in the past but now it says I don't have hidden springs, lucky palms, lunar lakes, and aurora skies. The rest work. What did I do wrong?

OK, here's what I've done. First i tired clicking on each one to get it to open the game window. When that was done I opened the game and there was no change. Then I tired replacing the files then clicking on them to send to the game. No change. Then I uninstalled the neighborhoods from the downloads (documents- ea- sims 3- downloads) folder and my computer. Downloaded them again. Went though the process of clicking them to send them to the game and ran the game. Again no change.

What's interesting is that sunlit tides, barnacle bay and pairs show up and run without a problem.

Hello,

What do you mean with "Sending to game"?

What I mean by "sending it to the game" is after placing the file in the correct folder, I double click it which opens the game launcher.

Hello,

Try putting all the .Sims3Pack files in: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads
Now open the Launcher and go to the "Downloads" tab. Select "Select all" and then "Install".

Hello there,

The solution is usually right in front of us; we just don't see them that easily.

Glad to hear it's working again. Enjoy the game and let us know if you need more assistance!
