Installed worlds not showing.[SOLVED]

Post by oohdelally on Wed 24 Apr 2013, 13:51

Hi, hopefully someone can help cause I'm a bit stumped.

Firstly thank you for all the available downloads and instructions. Much appreciated.

I recently had to reinstall everything on my computer for a non-sims related reason.

When I went to reinstall the worlds I had downloaded, it told me they were already installed, but they're not showing or available when I start a new game. I even purchased Riverview today as it was available for 0 simoleans, but that isn't showing either,

Any help greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum! Smile

Try backing up and removing "Documents\Electronic Arts\Sims 3", starting the game to create a new folder in its place, then placing the downloads back in the downloads folder. Once you've done that, everything that was "installed" in your game will have been removed.
