CC/Mods not showing up in game [SOLVED]

Post by jiae on Sat 29 Nov 2014, 03:00

I've tried both with putting my mods folder in only Program files (x86)> Electronic Arts >Sims 3 > game > bin
& I tried again copying another mods folder in Documents > Electronic arts > Sims 3

Either way the mods/CC arent showing up in the game WhatDidUJustCallMe? I didnt bury the mods in many sub folders this time either. 

This is what it looks like through  Documents > Electronic arts > Sims 3 :

 
I dont have anymore folders inside of those 5, in those are just mods/cc. 

This is through Program files(x86)> Electronic Arts >Sims 3 > game > bin :



This is what the Resource looks like.


I Also get this message whenever I open the Sim Launcher :

Hi there! Smile

Please, remember that the Mods folder must be put in the folder from Documents, not in the one from Program Files. Delete the one you put in there, and leave just the one in Documents. 

And the problem you are having is that the folder must be named "Mods". If you name it anything else, like "The Sims 3 Mods" it will not be recognized by the game. So, rename it back to "Mods" and see if they work properly now. 

About the error in the Launcher, it's completely harmless, and just annoying. You may ignore it and continue as normal. 

You were already asked to keep questions in the topic that you have still open here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18526-can-i-transfer-my-sims-3-game-from-one-computer-to-another
So, if you have any follow up questions, you should post them there.

Thank you in advance, and good luck! Very Happy

Jiae....


Yes, what SeoY said. Inform yourself about how to install .package files (mods, CC, etc.) in The Sims 3 - here:

http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/How_to_install_.package_files.pdf

This has all the information you need. The name of the "Mods" folder MUST be Mods and not anything else (like "Sims 3 Mods" in your case). Smile
