You can't shift the folder as the game will create a new folder in its place, leaving you with two folders, one old and one new.
It goes to your C drive as this is where your Windows is installed and hence where your User Documents folder is, by default Sims 3 has its second Electronic Arts folder in User Documents which is in most cases the C drive where Windows is installed.

So unfortunately you can't move the folder. Do you have any more questions?

Thanks,

It's actually possible to redirect the game folder to somewhere else, and at the same time, the game can still recognise the folder. Carlos has written a topic about it: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t17437-redirecting-the-username-folder-the-sims-3-to-a-different-location.

Good luck and let us know if you do not understand the instructions.

Hi,

It's a very very tedious process. >< Btw, i'm going to install the Island Paradise. After i install it, i just need to ignore the #crack in the Island Paradise folder and use the crack in the fix?

Thanks.

Hi again! 

Yes, you should ignore the #Crack in the Island Paradise installation folder, and use the one in the Ultimate Fix. Be sure to use the latest version of the fix! If necessary, re-download it and follow the instructions.

If you have any more issues don't doubt to ask here! Good luck! Wink

Well, I recommend re-applying both the latest patch and the Ultimate Fix anyway. Maybe you are not seeing them right now, but problems may surface in the future if they are not correctly applied.

Let us know if you have any more issues! Good luck! Smile

You mean the Board Walk, right? Wink

Well, they could be seen as a kind of CC, so you should still disable them to see if the issue is in those.
One question: did you install the Store Fixes along with the Roaring Heights Gold and the Board Walk? They are required for them to work properly. You can find them here:
http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/ts3/storefixes.html

Make sure they are properly installed, and please let us know how it goes.


A small note: the CC items from the official "Sims 3 store" are safe to use. Wink

Tedious ? Do you mean the guide I wrote about re-directing the "Sims 3"-folder from My Documents/Electronic Arts ? If so, yes, it's not that easy indeed, and there are a few steps necessary to do that. But if you cannot (manage to) do that, then the only alternative is to free up space otherwise on your C: drive. Sad
