Missing SwiftGro Gardening Station. [SOLVED]

Post by Zife on Mon Mar 04, 2013 9:50 am

Hello,
First id like to say thanks for all the wonderfull content and info you guys have provided me! Very Happy

I just did a full reinstall of The Sims 3 and all store content to fix a crappy lag, which worked perfectly except i cant install alot of the store content. It keeps saying that it is installed/installes it again but then doesnt show in-game and can be reinstalled again??

Most importantly, I managed to get the Stones Throw Greenhouse set(nex&fixed) installed after alot of trouble, and I can now finally see the greenhouse in game/build it, but the SwiftGro Gardening Station is no where in my items? <-- if you could please help me with this? What i have tried so far: Clearing Cache, reinstalling, converting to .package and (what made me see the greenhouse) moving a DC folder to desktop reinstalling Greenhouse, then moving folder back and replacing... and yes, i do have the lates StoreFix which cured my sunflowers "Yay"

Hope you can help me, thanks in advance,
Zife

First off, always download your store content from our official Media Fire account here. then, completely delete the Sims 3 folder in My Documents, (only back up your safe files if you have any) and run the launcher. Close the launcher now and go to Sims 3 folder in My Documents. Place each and every Sims3Pack you wanna install in the Downloads folder. Open launcher again, go to downloads tab and click install all. Wait for it to install and try running the game. Of course, before running it, re-apply the store fixes.


If the above does not help, download a very useful program, called CC Magic. Read the guide and try installing your content with it if the above method does not work. CC Magic may also reduce the lag in your game but beaware that CC Magic will not install Lots, sims or worlds (these must be installed via launcher).


Good luck and post your results here.

The swiftgro gardening station is in "Show by function -> Plumbing -> Misc plumbing" It's kind of a weird spot.

All the content installed is from the Media Fire, I think I'm going to try with CC magic later today. I have read a tutorial on how to use CC magic, and as u said: Lots, sims and worlds should be installed in the launcer, what should i do with a file such as Lunar lakes (world+Three) or such as Stones Throw Greenhouse i have the lot ingame but need the Swiftgro?

Edit: Plus, how should i use the Store fix if i split my files into CC magic, .Package and Sims3Packs?

Edit edit edit: I like to edit...... So i found the SwiftGro and the said location (which was in a different location before the reinstall, but nvm! TY!) Still i have a problem with alot of stuff not showing as installed in the launcer, now i do not know if all the stuff is in the game or not, but it is anoying. So i think i am still gonna do a switch to the CC Magic, and would still like to know how to install stuff like Lunar Lakes and Stones Throw + how to use Store Fix with multiple file types, ty <3

World files comes with other stuff in them, as the Tree of Prosperity in Lunar Lakes. You install the world file with launcher, you also get the tree and everything else the world has from that 1 world file, via launcher always.

As for the rest, CC Magic should do the trick.

If you are using both Sims3Pack and .packages, the Store Fixes include 2 methods, one if you are using Sims3Packs and one for .packages. Apply BOTH methods described in the Store Fixes guide and you should be fine!


Post back with results and good luck!
