Costume Contents Crash the game

Post by darkprince_305 on Thu 06 Mar 2014, 23:43

hey guy's i followed all the instruction on how to install the sims 3 correctly but am still having this issue with the CC's
at first the game was running great but i installed win 8 recently so i basically deleted everything including the sims 3 and all the Expansions and save data and i re-installed it again the same way but each time i try to buy one of the costume contents in the buy mode the game crashes to desktop, it happens only in build/buy mode, the hair and clothes are working fine but objects like chairs cause the game to crash each time i try to buy them in the buy mode, am getting desperate here Sad
thank's in advance

Well if you have a Pirated game and are trying to use the Store, it will not work...

Hello,

Try
going to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete all contents inside the Currentgame.sims3 folder. Also, in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, delete the following stuff:



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



Re-start the game and see if anything improved. If it crashes again, repeat this process I described (i.e. delete these cache files again). Next time though, when you start the game, try and see if the same happens in a NEW savegame.

Good luck !

P.S. Keep in mind though that some of the CCs from TSR might be corrupted; and if they are .sims3pack files then there is no "direct" way I can think of to identify these corrupt items.

Things like this are the reason why I usually avoid most of these "third-party" CC items (= stuff that wasn't made by professionals, unlike the official store items from EA).
