Patterns won't show up

Post by paudjs on Thu 23 May 2013, 08:11

I have downloaded several patterns but when I try to customize my items only one pattern shows up for every pattern i have downloaded. There would be the custom content sign but it's the same pattern for everything. This is the only problem i got. Everything else works fine. Help, anyone? Help

Hello,

Alright, I suppose you have downloaded the patterns from the official Sims 3 exchange ? And then you tried installing them with the launcher ? If yes, it's very common that these items don't work if you install "the usual way".

For a start, have a look at this here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/461888
This tool "CCMagic" can help installing these items. For instructions, go to that site and scroll a bit down. Under "Help & Support" you can find links to instructions.

You can also look at this article here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2208-sims3pack-installed-world-inaccessible-or-wont-install-fix
However: I would first try to "leave" the "DCBackup" and "DCCache" folders AS THEY ARE. So for the moment only delete the other cache files instead (CASPartCache.package, scriptCache.package, compositorCache.package, and simCompositorCache.package). You can find all of these files in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3.
If this doesn't work, you can (later on) still delete the contents of DCBackup and DCCache.

OK, that's it for the moment. Good luck !

Hello again,

You might want to try installing the patterns with CC Magic too. Otherwise: lots of items from that "Exchange" have bugs - so even if you manage to install them, they might cause problems after some time.

If you really want new patterns, I'm afraid you have to try downloading and installing others. I have myself actually installed a few new patterns from the Exchange, but I guess I was lucky: I managed to install all of them (even with the launcher), and I have no problems when using them.
