Duplicate Files and What Do They Do?!

Post by Cr8zyC8tL8dy on Thu 30 May 2013, 01:40

I installed all the expansions and and stuff packs, and started to create sims. I noticed that I have duplicate items under clothing, but no idea what they do or how to find the duplicate! I clicked on them, but couldn't see any changes to my sim. Here is a screenshot. They seem to be from Supernatural.

Hello,

Try the following: Assuming you have a Windows OS, go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Thumbnails.
Inside that "Thumbnails" folder, delete all contents.

Start the game then, and see if this makes any difference.

They aren't duplicates. The upper most item are werewolf teeth, the middle one are vampire teeth (they lack the LN logo for some reason) and the last item is the vampire mark which comes in several default colors.

If you want to see the teeth in CAS, temporarily set the jaw underbite slider (Head > Jaw section) to ether one of the extremes.

Oh! They looked like duplicates to me, thanks for clarifying that and letting me know what they do! I doubt I'll ever use the, but nice to know what they are! No idea why the LN isn't indicated either, as it's installed!

Doesn't show up in mine ether, probably cause it's added by Late Night and unlocked by Supernatural IDK.

Anyway yeah, I think Seasons unlocks them too, for "Spooky Day" / Halloween costume purposes. Cause everybody wants to parade around as a dead Romanian monarch and scare the s**t out of people with just one smile. Yay.

Oh what was I saying? Ah yes you're welcome.
