If you ever have game lag check your package files.

Post by mslisalisa on Mon 08 Apr 2013, 02:48

Just sharing a little info in case someone else has this problem.
My game was running great and then all of the sudden really bad lag. All items didn't load for me, and game was running so slow.
Then I remembered something. If you install a Sims 2 file by mistake that will slow down the game a lot.
So, I used the Sims 3 Dashboard and there they were. Ten hair color files that were Sim 2 package files. Deleted them and the game is running great again. Just wanted to pass this info along in case anyone runs into game lag after installing something.

P.S Always use the .package from the CC you download, or it will create extreme lag, that's how I fixed by Sims 3 lag, by taking out the .package in the CC (.sims3package) and merging them together Wink

Its possible to download a sims2 package file if the site doesn't say if its for sims 2 or 3. As you said when you download and install it the package file icon looks the same. I use the Sims3 Dashboard and run my mods/package files though there. Then it will tell you if you have a sims 2 package installed.

hello.i have some questions regarding combining CC
i swear i have install many software (like s3pe,CCmagic)and countless hours to learn and fix slow loading problems but i still dont know how to use them.

1) i dont donwload any content from sites.i just install The Sims 3, and 5 expansion(Ambitions,late night, showtime,seasons,and university).now my loading is slow. so the idea is to combine these 5 expansion into one big package.thats why we use s3pe, right? please correct me on this.i really noob.

2)there are so many .package, and .cfg in each subfolder in each expansion. how to combine?if i did ,where to save it?at desktop? then the original .package i need to delete or what?

3)whats the difference between ccmagic and s3pe? btw i have no clue how to use any of them

 CC Magic and S3Pe are for used to combine custom content that you downloaded from websites that are in package form. I don't think you can combine the files that you are talking about.
