Post by djbluemoney on Sun 27 Jul 2014, 00:25

hi , despite all the icons being lit at the bottom of the launcher screen, the "Installed content" is blank.  So only Supernatural works as its the last expansion I installed.  Any ideas guys.  Thanks

Hello,


If you say your expansion logos at the bottom of the launcher are ALL "lit", then it means they are all installed. The "Installed Content"-tab you were talking about is only meant for DLC items in the .sims3pack file format (called "The Sims 3 store items").

Do you need any assistance on these .sims3pack files, or did thisd answer your question ? Smile

You will always get the opening screen of the expansion that was most recently released. So just because "Supernatural" shows up on your start screen it doesn't mean the other expansions have disappeared. Smile

As for Katy Perry's Stuff, download it here, if you haven't done so yet:

http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html



Click on the magnet symbol, and the downlaod should start automatically in your torrent client. After the download is finished, open the .RAR file of the download with the program WinRAR (which you can get on that site, too). Then make an empty folder somewhere. Extract ALL contents of the .RAR, into that folder you made. Again, ALL contents of the .RAR. After that, start the installation from within the folder, by using the "autorun.exe".


After the installation is done, repeat the steps from #2 to #4 here, and you should be fine:

Good luck !

Basically, if you (properly) add expansions/stuffpacks, then there will be "content" added to your game. 

This new/additional content can be things like new neighborhoods, new clothing/CAS items, new hairstyles, buy/build-mode objects, and so on. You do not "switch" between expansions in Sims 3. Smile  Instead, just look in CAS/Buy-mode/Build-mode for the new items, and use them as you like...
