CAS "processing..." endless

Post by Pesto on Tue 14 Feb 2017, 18:38

I recently downloaded "The Sims 3 Complete Collection" from the games4theworld download server to avoid any issues with cracked stuff in my legally bought Sims 3 base game (which I had...).

It works perfect but what's TS3 without the plenty of store objects?  Surprised
I have bought store items on the official store page before but for now I wanted to try it all, because I found this website.
So I downloaded the complete Sims 3 store torrent, also from g4tw.
I followed all the instructions to install the store content but unfortantly it completely screws up CAS. The "thumbnails" of the clothing doesn't show up in CAS, that's a thing I can live with but worse is that the "processing..." screen is endless when I finish creating a household. It's impossible for me to create one.
I've no mods installed beside the store fixes.

If anybody has the same problem or can help me, please write it down here!

Hello,


I've actually had that problem myself, and I have NO idea how to fix it yet WhatDidUJustCallMe?
Apart from trying a "clean" folder, I have tried just about everything. Sometimes I can create a family just fine, and other times I get stuck in an endless "processing" cycle. I'm not sure what's causing it.

Thanks for your answer.  Wink
I cleaned my Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims3 folder multiple times now but everytime i get the CC/Store content the problem comes back. 
How do you even play TS3 with this problem? Did you throw out all store content? It's just... dumb. I spent so much time to fix any bugs and glitches and then this happens.
I researched so many forums for this problem but every time it's the same. Clear cash, etc.... Tried everything. So, that we have 2017 and it's still a thing says me that my favorite game ever died forever. Depressing. (I know I'm a little extreme with that Laughing )  Help

Okay, do you play with the complete store torrent, do you play with some content or with the content from the official store? And do you think it could be an asset or some clothing? I won't give up with that!

I use the complete store torrent, yes.
Well, what I do is, if I REALLY need to create a certain sim/family, I use the mod MasterController to edit an existing sim in CAS while in-game. I will import families from other worlds, if need be.


I am not sure if it is related to the Complete Store Collection, there really shouldn't be anything special or significant about it, but maybe we can test it. I'll have to ask @The_gh0stm4n to have a look here though, since he has the original packages and it would be much less of a hassle for him to test this, than for us.

It must be related to the torrent. I downloaded single stufff from g4tw and it works. Bad thing is that some premium content from there does not work properly fro me... Is your content also showing up as CC-content? Mine is. I'd be really happy if you'd ask gh0st about a look into the files.  Very Happy

That's neat but is the content from the torrent showing up as CC-content in your game? Because I think it's related to CC-content...

They do show up as CC, yes, but that is because they're package files, and shouldn't be the problem.
I'm not sure at this point what the cause could be, other than just another EA mess-up WhatDidUJustCallMe?

It's nothing to do with the game being pirated, or the store content. This problem is being described by people on the official forums as well, and they were complaining about it a couple of patches ago. 
Some people suggest to just wait (they report up to an hour waiting time), and others suggest it may have to do with having testingcheatsenabled activated.
Another person suggests that it could happen when you (accidentally) double-click on the checkmark. 


It looks like there is no easy answer WhatDidUJustCallMe?

I deleted the complete Sims 3 folder in my documents multiple times now but it doesn't help. I never activated testingcheats, I never double-clicked... 
This game is just a mess.

Yeah, but I think only when I change up to an outfit which thumbnail/picture isn't showing up at the time I choose it, the game gets stuck in "processing...". But I'm not shure.
