I Broke My Game Using CC Merged: How Do I Undo It?

Post by TurtleShroom on Wed Sep 02, 2015 5:01 pm

Good afternoon.

I've played your pirated form of "Sims III" for many years and I love it to pieces. After so many years of playing it, I have naturally accumulated hundreds of custom items. I'm no hair and features person, which saved me a lot of trouble, but I do have scores of furniture and lots and so on. It's clogged my game and made it slow to load and save.

I discovered "CC Merger" on this site and set to work deploying it. To my disappointment, it failed miserably and crashed my game. I decided to go ahead and uninstall it, but now, none of my SIMS3PACK Download files are being read and my custom content and Worlds aren't spawning.

There's no way I'll be able to relocate everything I've ever downloaded; indeed, it'd take weeks if I'm lucky.

How exactly do I undo this mess I've made? If that's even possible, is there some way to merge custom content like SIMS3PACK and PACKAGE files that won't bork my game up?


Thank you for your help.

Hello,

Do you still have the CCmagic folder in Documents/Electronic Arts? Your sims3packs and packages are in there somewhere. The program has sorted them into folders in it's folder in Documents. If the folder is missing, try your recycle bin.

Now, when you've recovered them, there are indeed ways to merge your custom content. Sims3packs can be unpacked into packages, and packages can be merged. I've done it before and it worked like a charm. More about that here.
Sims3packs can be unpacked and the packages merged, this tool unpacks them. 

You'll still have to install world files the regular way, but unpacking sims3packs and merging them should make quite a difference.

A note: It already says so in the tutorial that shows you how to merge packages, but it is vital to remember that packages shouldn't be bigger than 200mb. 
It may also be a good idea to check for conflicting mods/cc before you go through the process of merging them.

Would it be possible for me to send you all my files and have you merge them?

I can't code my way out of a paper bag and I can't even seem to get the packages, worlds, and SIMS3PACK files to show up in the game. I have the files, but the SIMS3PACK files are either not installing or just not beging recognized.

If you don't want to accept a task like that, I understand. If you refuse my request, I'll keep trying based on your advice and write back the results.
