Incomplete game. [SOLVED]

Post by simnicorn on Wed 07 Dec 2016, 16:56

(I apologize for my English in advance bc i'm Portuguese)
I'm not sure if I'm posting on the right place or not and I don't know if anyone else posted about this but I couldn't find anything.
I never had trouble before and I have downloaded this game some months ago. I have everything (base game, stuff packs, expansion packs, game packs).
So yesterday I played my game like i usually do and everything worked like usually. Everything was fine with my game. Today I was going to play a bit more and I had lost some of the worlds (Granite Falls, Magnolia Promenade and Windenburg). It was out of nowhere! I have all the files in the game location but I don't have the packs in the game, basically all I have is base game.
Do i need to download everything again (including base game) or is there any way to solve this?

Hello @simnicorn and welcome to the Forum,

One thing to keep in mind for the future: un-installing and then re-installing rarely fixes in-game issues with PC games. It actually increases your chances of destroying the game even more.

You may want to have a look here, for possible solutions:

So no need to re-install anything. Good luck! alien

Well, before I did anything, I started the game and everything seems normal. I have all the content. Idk how bc I swear I didn't do anything but the game is normal again. Thanks anyway for the help, next time it happens, I already know where to look for solutions.

I think I mentioned it in the thread I linked above as well, but running the game as Administrator can help as well, sometimes at least (right-click on desktop shortcut or executable, and choose "run as Administrator").

And you're welcome. Smile  Feel free to open a new topic if you need more advice or help in the future. Until then have fun! Problem solved, topic closed.
