Trouble installing store content. [SOLVED]

Post by SpoonBender on Sat 08 Oct 2016, 15:58

First off sorry if this is the wrong section also a massive thanks for the work you guys have put into this. 

Okay, so I have been following the instructions trying to install the store content from your store site but it doesn't seem to be showing up in my game (the sims3 complete collection).

I downloaded the framework and placed the mods folder into (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\ then I copied the "ccmerged.package", "StoreFix_Decrap_Fixes.package", "StoreFix_Fixes.package" and "XMLs.package" files to: (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages\. The ccmerged.package was already in the DCbackup folder so I left it. Then I placed a few .Sims3Pack files into (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages\ and started the game but nothing appears.  Why.

Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem with the store or files I am missing?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Make sure that you have the latest Framework file, as described here: https://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/How_to_install_.package_files.pdf
Whatever files you're copying, always overwrite the original files with the modified files you're copying. (So also the ccmerged.package!)

The Guide above will explain how to install .package files.
However, you're trying to install .Sims3Pack files. The process for those files is differently. If you want to install one or two, you could just double-click the .Sims3Pack files. They'll automatically open the Game Launcher and start installing.
If you want to install a lot at once, copy them all to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads\  first and then go to the "Downloads" tab on the Game Launcher, then select all the .Sims3Pack files and click to install them all at once. This makes things a lot easier.

So again, only follow the guide above (with the Framework) if you want to install .Package files, not .Sims3Pack files.
Good luck and please keep us updated! The Sims Plumbob 1

You are a legend! Thanks!  It didn't occur to me to simply just click on them lol. I have not encountered any package files yet but I think I'll be able to do that now, it was just the sim3pack files that were confusing the hell out of me. 

Thanks again!
