CC is Gone, Please Help. [SOLVED]

Post by Macduff7 on Thu 28 Feb 2013, 04:51

After patch 1.50, my custom content is gone. I mainly download hairs. I see half of my store content hairs [.sims3pack files] and NONE of the ones I get from tumblr or other sites [.package files].

I always delete my cache after every time I get off the game. I have the Ultimate Fix installed, 70s 80s & 90s pack is my latest one, and updated to 1.50.

What can I do to solve this?

Hello,

Actually a lot of people report this error. I can't directly tell what the issue is...
I'll see if Lady ElDi can take a look at your topic when she has time. Thank you for your patience!

Thank goodness I'm not the only the one!! Well, not thank goodness on them since I don't wish hardship upon anyone, but at least with more of the same problem rising, it can get solved easier. Thank you for replying back, I'll be waiting!

Hello,

Thank you for your patience!
In the meanwhile though, try this please: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2208-sims3pack-installed-world-inaccessible-or-wont-install-fix (Backup this folder prior to doing so, just to be sure: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 )

Thank you, but it's not sims3pack files. It's the .package files in the Mods folder.

I've tried factory reset, clear cache, re-download Mods folder, etc. Everything was working perfectly until the patch came out. Now all my CC is gone.

People keep telling me to update the hairs, which is the .package files I'm talking about. But I don't think you can 'update' hairs. Also, I tried installing a new hair today and it won't show up either. They are visible in the folder, but not in game.

Yes, I know where it should be at since I had it working perfectly a while back. Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3/Mods/Packages. I already know lol

Hello,

That's what I was going to suggest, it may be something with the resourcefile. the easiest way to update the resourcefile is to download the framework here. You can then open it and copy the resourcefile inside to your existing mods folder.

How is it updated though? That resource file and the one in my mods folder both say that they haven't been modified since 6/2011.

Hello there,

There's never a harm in "updating" it anyway: mediafire.com view/?ry6rjf1r3mbta4c

Sometimes the file gets messed up, and it needs to be refreshed, so replacing it occasionally is good.

Ok, I did the media fire link and placed it in there. Still no CC.

Actually, my friend has all the exact same torrents as me. Her CC hair is still there but her build/buy mode is messed up. I had that problem a while back but once I applied the Ultimate Fix, the build/buy mode worked again. Could the Ultimate Fix messed up my CC? She's about to test it to see if it fixes her build/buy mode.

Gah, it works perfectly for her. She can see her CC, I can't.

Hello,

Have you tried starting from scrath by backing up and removing this folder completely: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\ and then starting with a new Framework file?

Yep, I did that when I downloaded the media fire link framework one. I backed it up, pasted it on my desktop, played the game so it made it's own files, then placed the new framework in. Still nothing.

It's okay, lol. I'm clueless too.

//EDIT

Guess I just wanted to give you guys an update since I haven't heard from anyone.

I
guess my merged hair file, of all my 200+ hairs, got corrupted during
the patch :/ I took the merged file out of my game, and placed a random
.package file hair in there. And well... it shows up! So it just must
have been the merged file. Which I don't understand because I removed
ALL mods before I updated... guess it really pays to keep a backup copy
of EVERYTHING.

Thank you guys though!
