No towns?

Post by PrinceTrip on Wed 21 Jan 2015, 20:22

I just installed the Sims 3 as well as Pets, Generations and Seasons. I used the fix and I'm pretty sure I followed all the directions correctly. The game starts up fine, although it minimizes at first, but when I go to start a game there are no towns to choose from.

It looks like this:

How do I fix it?

Hi.
You should try doing this and tell me if it works for you ok?
First of all, Make sure that you rename the folder "The Sims 3" (in My Documents/Electronic Arts), into anything you like and leave it where it is. Then uninstall the base game and re-boot the computer.

Then you Re-install the base game then. Afterwards, re-do the steps from 2 to 4 here:

Start up the game and let us know if that worked !

Hi there, @PrinceTrip, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Very Happy

The problem is most likely caused by outdated cracks (or not applying the Crack correctly). So, before uninstalling anything, you should repeat the Steps 2 and 4-5 of the Installation Guide, posted by stabitha666 above. Make sure to re-download the Ultimate Fix so you have the latest version. And follow the instructions of where to copy the files very carefully.

Alternatively, it's also possible that the problem is caused by this:

But again, the most probable cause is the Crack. No need to uninstall anything yet, just repeat that part and see how it goes. Good luck!
