According to the guide you must uninstall all of them. But, did you delete the Sims3Packs you downloaded after installing them? When you download a Sims3Pack and put it in the Downloads folder to install them, you can use these same Sims3Packs to re-install the content you had. They are not one-time use, as long as you don't delete them. Wink

So, if you uninstall all of the Installed Content and follow the rest of the steps, at the end you would only need to go to the Downloads tab and install all of it again, without needing to re-download them. Very Happy

Of course, this is if you didn't delete them. If you did, you would have to download them again. Sorry! 

Please, keep us updated. Good luck!  Smile

I would have actually suggested to try the following, before attempting the solution SeoY posted before, with deleting all .sims3packs.

Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete the compositorCache.package file. After that, put the .sims3pack of the (Riverview) world again into the "Downloads"-folder. Re-install the file with the launcher then, and see if the neighborhood shows up in your game.

Hi again! Smile

You should take a look at this post:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-7-01-2014

If I may ask, how did you do the defrag? Did you use a special program or used the built-in one? I don't think just doing a defrag or disk clean up may cause this, except if you deleted something you shouldn't have. Still, try the instructions on the link and let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

No problem!

Still, I don't think the defrag caused this. I may be wrong, though. Be sure to let us know if any of the tips of the post helped. Please, be sure to try all of them. Smile

That's good to hear!

If removing the Mods and CC fixed it, then maybe you should check that all of them are updated, and none conflict with each other. After that, you could try reinstalling them. For Sims3Packs, you only need to copy the Downloads folder and install them again. For the .packages, you would need to copy the Mods folder.


If you have any other questions or issues, we'll be here to help you though them. Good luck! Very Happy
