Island Paradise - Isla Paradiso not loading

Post by insideoutkitty on Wed 26 Jun 2013, 19:25

I downloaded the Island Paradise expansion pack and installed it according to all instructions. When I loaded the game up, the new town doesn't finish loading. It just gets stuck for forever. So I read the 'How to Install the Sims 3 Correctly' post on the website, did that, tried again and same thing. I've cleared all of my caches and searched all over this site for anything I haven't tried yet. Does anyone either have the same problem or a possible solution? Thank you!

How long did you leave it for? I noticed IP world takes longer to load, probably due to the size of this world as it appears to be massive

The first time I left it for 20 minutes. The loading bar gets stuck almost right at the end of it. After trying a bunch of fixed I would leave it for 10. It's just unusual for my game. Even my large towns only take a few minutes to load.

Ok try renaming the sims 3 folder in your documents and run the game again, by doing this will remove all mods and save games.

IF it loads ok then try putting your mod folder in and start the game again.

By doing this at one step at a time will hopefully either make it work or find out where the issue actually is

Is there anything specific I should name it? Or just change it? Thank you!

Just rename it to anything, Sims old or something, it is just so that when you launch the game a new folder will appear which is nearly fresh install  without the hassle of re installing if that makes sense.

I tried it and the town loaded perfectly. So the problem must be with my mods or something. Thank you for your help!
