Island Paradise stuck on loading

Post by Noodz on Fri 28 Jun 2013, 20:47

I installed Island Paradise today, did the update and the ultimate fix stuff, everything as I usually do when installing a new expansion. 
When I open the game, everything seems to go fine, i get the splash screens and the cinematic intro but when it starts to load the game nothing happens, the progress bar stays empty. It doesn't crash, it just doesn't do anything (task manager says the game is still running and mouse cursor is the swirly loading icon).
Any ideas how to fix this?

That seems to be a very common problem right now (even I -briefly- had that problem).

First of all make sure to update ALL your mods, which need to be updated (since I don't know which mods you have, I can't tell you which mods exactly you have to update either).

Then delete the following things in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3:


-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"


Also try lowering the resolution of your screen (I briefly changed mine to 1024 x 768). Then try again to start the game.

I've got all the expansions installed except 60's 70's 80's stuff. I'm not sure how to update them though, i've installed the latest update file and the launcher says the game is up to date.

I've deleted the mentioned files but can't find a "WorldCaches" folder.
I changed the resolution.
The problem remains.

Did you remove the mods file or checked if they were up to date if you use any mods?

Sorry, I thought you were talking about expansions not mods. Forgot I actually had a mod installed, deleted it and now everything works.
Thanks for your help.
