Most CC not found. [SOLVED]

Post by FrlKarma on Thu 11 Feb 2016, 20:33

Hello there. Smile

I downloaded the basic TS3 Game as well as all of the expansions. So far, everything was working perfectly. I even downloaded some other CC villages such as Midnight Hollow etc. and they are showing up and working like a charm.

Now, going with the other CC such as hairs etc, most of them are not showing up. Actually, besides 3 CC files, everything else is not available. I do not get any errors or such, but not .package file nor the installed .sims3pack are to be seen in the game. Sad My game is up to date (1.67).

Someone on the official forum said to do the following:

1. Open your game
2. Open the Options Menu
3. Choose Game Options -> Other
4. Check Enable Custom Content & Mods
5. Exit & Restart game

But I can't Choose Game Options -> Other. I don't have that option. Ermahgerd

I'm really stuck in here... I hope you can help. Sad

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
Are these third party cc's?

Hey there, well, it's mostly CC from PeggyZone or the such. But even the officiall CC is not showing up, except the villages...

//EDIT

I already tried putting the CC on the desktop and just putting them in bit by bit, but just nothing shows up...

Hello @FrlKarma !


This here comes to my mind as a possible solution to your issue(s):
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2208-sims3pack-installed-world-inaccessible-or-wont-install-fix

But you should wait for Edin's feedback later on; maybe she has a better/less painful idea on how to deal with that.

As a personal remark, things like that are the reason I have come to avoid .sims3pack files as much as possible. In the rare event that I do use third-party (fan-made) custom content items, I almost always use the stuff only if it is in .package file format. Easy to install, and easy to remove, if they cause issues.


Very Happy

Ok, I will wait then. But I suppose it is worth a try. Smile There is a tool from MTS3 that extracts all .sims3pack files to .package files. Maybe that's what I'll do to.

Thanks again, I'll keep you up to date on this matter Very Happy


//Edit: I couldn't wait, so I did what you suggested me to do. I uninstalled all .sims3pack items and tried some .package items... and they're showing up. I will try and put them in bit by bit to see if everything is working out... but for now, I am quite happy! Very Happy

Thanks a lot. Very Happy  I used a program from ModtheSims called "Sims3Pack Multi Installer" to unpack all those .sims3pack files to simple .package files and it wooooooooorks. Can't touch banana  I'm never ever going to install any .sims3pack files.

Thanks again. Problem solved. Hammertime

Also keep in mind that if you are using too many .package files, that can cause issues of sorts. There is a way to merge those .packages though, if you haven't heard about it yet:

And since your problem seems solved, I will lock the topic now too. Feel free to open a new topic anytime again if you need more support. Have fun ! Very Happy
