Current World Items gone after uninstalling other Worlds (HELP/SUGGESTIONS Needed)

Post by tahooba on Thu 13 Jun 2013, 08:05

i recently installed the Riverview, Aurora Skies, Hidden Springs, SunlitTides Worlds...
to try them out, and out of these 4 i really loved SunlitTides so i decided to uninstall HiddenSprings, AuroraSkies and Riverview Via Sims 3 Launcher...(the launcher said they was successfully uninstalled) 

so i decided to go back in the game..
and then a message popped up..i cant remember the message completely but here is the point...
"custom items has been lost and permanently replaced by in-game available items"
i didnt took the message seriously, and then when i was rotating my camera view i just realized that my Tropical Hot Tub, Tropical Aquarium and the Massage Table are gone(these 3 items were from SunlitTides World) the massage table and aquarium has been replaced but the HotTub isn't...i dont know why this happened i deleted the other 3 worlds and im certain of that i didnt delete the world im using right now(sunlit Tides)...is there somebody out there who experienced the same as me? please help..

i cant understand how to bring those items back..actually i kinda felt there is something to be done but i still dont get it...i copied my sims 3 folder(documents region) to make a back up and do a "Factory Reset". After doing all of the instructions stated there i went back and checked my game, so i lost the Modded hairs/clothes/cars/house/face...etc..i clicked "Buy mode" and then i looked into the "Hobby Section" the tropic aquarium was there!!! then when i looked at the outdoor ent. the tropic hot tub was there..BUT the massage Table was Still MISSING...
this may seem to be the fix the Hot Tub and Aquarium BUT...!

1. how am i going to fix the missing clothes?
2. how am i going to fix the missing hairs?
3. how am i going to fix the missing face looks(make up, eye styles, etc..)?
4. how am i going to fix the missing house/cars/objects?
5. how am i going to fix the missing Massage table?

do i have to reinstall the game? i mean from base game to the expansions?
(these are the current Sims3 installed in my laptop, Sims3BaseGame, Seasons, Generations)
then re install all the downloaded mods?
*if ever you would suggest these steps is there a guarantee those 5 things would be answered?*

P.S. i may sound very demanding im sorry about that im just kinda frustrated right now.. i dont have a clue and i cant find any answers from Google...PLEASE HELP, Suggestions/Tutorials would be greatly appreciated

Ok, first let's try to clear your cache... Go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, and delete the following:
¤ CASPartCache.package
¤ compositorCache.package
¤ scriptCache.package
¤ simCompositorCache.package
¤ socialCache.package
Then, also delete the folders WorldCaches, and Thumbnails.
Does this help?

Cache files are temporary, they will be generated again by the game...
Good luck

Well, You can delete DCCache and DCBackup, but then it might delete your CC (first one) and your saved items (second)...
So if you don't want to loose them, let's try sth else first! Wink

Ok, that's bad.
Please uninstall it again, then restart your pc, then re install it.
Is that better?

sorry for double posting.,...my google chrome crashed...

Okay i uninstalled it, then delete cache then install it....and...
IT DIDNT WORK lmao XD

i ddnt know why it happened, as far as i know if i uninstall a world different from the one im using it wont really affect my game...but im wrong lol


UPDATE*
okay i tried moving my household to riverview..(from edit town copy to clipboard, new game then i picked riverview) i hoped that would fix my problem but.........NOPE...the items are still missing...i dont know why...moving to different world wont fix the problem..

oh btw what is the name of the FILE that holds the Sims  Clothings, Make-ups, Hairs, Cars, (Btw im using modded clothes, hairs, makeups, cars and house)

i really think that the files inside DCCache folder really affects the lost items..
here is my DCCache folder...



Update*2
Okay now anything i do isnt working...
hmmm if ever i re-install the whole game would it fix the missing objects? or would it still be the same?
*dang this is getting into my nerves LOL*

FIXED!! AND FIX?

alas!!! i finally found the fix for my problem, this is what i've done. 
NOTE: I always back-up saves and important data's before doing these things. 


Okay here we go!


*i un-installed the world(in my case it's SunlitTides) where the missing objects are bounded. Do some double-triple check if any file named "sunlitTides" are still installed, i found 3 files, one is SunlitTides World file and 2x SunlitTides Object files i uninstalled these 3 files.


*then i searched for the "missing in game" items at installed content(these items will show up for sure, in my case i had those 3 things.) Next to do is UNINSTALL those MISSING ITEMS.


*after these procedures clear your caches as follows, "CasPartCache.package, compositorCache.package, scriptCache.package, simCompositorCache.package," 


--------OPTIONAL----------


*You can also delete Thumbnails Folder.


*You can also delete World Cache (For windows ONLY)



FINALLY!!!

just reinstall the world again and hopefully it would work..
Facepalm i suffered for 5 days because of this bug Arrow
im glad its over TROLOLOLOL*
