Only Half A Top?!

Post by Cr8zyC8tL8dy on Wed 12 Jun 2013, 12:13

Isn't this lovely... anybody know what pack it came with so I can un-install and re-install? Or... how to fix it?!

Hello,

This is probably what is commonly referred to as "Broken/Bad CC". I cannot tell you which of your CC causes this. If it is a ".package" file, then you can just remove some of them from the Mods folder (clothing items often have names like "top" or "bottom" in their name) - and then try "filtering" the bad CC. Keep in mind though that this method can take some time, depending on how many ".packages" you have. So alternatively, you can also try "Delphy's Dashboard" (google for that), maybe this tool can find that item.

If this is caused by a ".sims3pack", then try finding the thumbnail picture (that's the small "preview picture" of an item) in the launcher, mark it and then un-install it. The alternative would be the article of Lady ElDi I posted in your other topic yesterday (the one about cache deleting and removing ".sims3packs").

Otherwise, if you don't want to go through all this, you can simply not use this item
Wink - provided that it doesn't cause other trouble like crashes, lag, etc.

As always thanks! Great forum, love it here! I will check out this Delphy first. I'm having multiple issues and I backed up my sims I spent hours creating and I may just do a clean install of everything!

Ah well worth a shot I guess, it is quite hard to know where this CC/mod content came from so you will have to slowly remove and then add it back till you find it unfortunatly as there is 1000's of sites offering CC/mods for Sims 3.

Try backing up and removing (This can easily be done by renaming the folder) "Documents\Electronic Arts\Sims 3". This will remove all your custom content and saves from the game, and may save you a re-install. Wink

I deleted everything, but the base games. Then put everything back in all nice and neat... the half a top is still there, no idea what pack it's from, but it's weird!

Hello,

I know I have asked this already, but does this cause you any other problems like lags or crashes ? If you really cannot find that corrupted item, then I would leave it as it is - by the way, in my opinion, un-installing everything was not necessary.

OK, in CAS it's an annoyance to see that "half-top", but as long as you can choose lots of other working tops Smile. I think I even have one or two of these myself, but I'm certainly not going through the hassle of un-installing the game - or even re-naming "The Sims 3"-folder. Why ? Again, because I don't experience other problems, and it's just not worth the effort.

Sorry, I didn't uninstall everything. I ended up deleting all the packages, etc. that were in the files. I left all the games/expansions/stuffs installed. I just took out store content and custom content. Cleared all those cache and scripts, etc. Then, I put all my store content back in and the half a top and the duplicates (another thread) are still there. I give up, I don't care anymore, game plays find, so I'm ignoring them!

Hello,

OK, I guess I misunderstood you a little bit Embarassed.

Alright, I will leave this topic open, in case someone else has a better solution for that problem.

Any updates on this? just a thought, try think back what CC/mods you installed lately, probably lots but maybe think of the time you first saw this issue.

No, but I found a full dress that isn't there either, lol. It started right away. Was very careful when adding the package files, but will check for conflicts again. Getting lots of duplicates too. They don't seem to bother the game, so I'm ignoring them!
