DLC error: content not showing [SOLVED]

Post by missxmarieke on Sat 10 Jun 2017, 14:13

Hi there!

I recently downloaded the new parenthood expansion and installed the latest update directly after. I did everything according to the steps written on here. However, I still get a weird bug/error

If you look at the screenshot underneath, you'll see that all the stuff packs are installed.




Now if you look at the next screenshot, you'll see that not all of them are installed somehow and that certain items from these packs are missing. as you can see, these packs are: romantic garden, kids room, backyard, vintage glamour, and bowling night. ( I do not only miss furniture, the clothing items in CAS are missing as well)



Because I did apply the latest fix which includes the missing items for parenthood fix, I don't really know what I did wrong.
Again, I followed the installation steps very carefully. 

Is this a common error? what should I do to fix this?
Any help is extremely appreciated:)

Hi, which EPs did you have before the update? I'm gonna assume it's Vampire since you decided to install Parenthood. Also, is your system MAC? If it is, try lookin at this thread here.

The last one installed was toddlers, which also includes vampires I guess..
I do play on a Mac and the sims is installed with wine, exactly the way that thread discribes. Do you know if there could be another solution? I don't really feel like going through the entire installation hassle again Oh my...

Hello, Surprised


Unfortunately, I'm not sure how the MAC works exactly though I saw someone posts that when you use wine, it's basically the pc version of mac? If so, the only thing i can suggest is, I'm sorry but, to re-install those missing DLCs. 

Also, I hope that you install the latest patch here instead of the update-only fix. I want to rule out mod-conflict as well, but if there's any mods/CCs installed, you can move the folder out and see if the DLCs are back.

I think you're right, it works pretty much the same as it does on PC. Would you suggest re-installing the entire sims 4 with all its dlc and expansions, or just the missing dlc?

Actually it depends on you. For me I would always suggest reinstalling everything. But you can actually just try to re-install the missing game pack and to see if it appears.


Also, before that, you can try to move your game folder directly to desktop instead and see if the DLCs shows up.

You mean the folder called 'game' ? The .exe is in there which is used by Wine to start the game.. that doesn't work for me. Gonna try installing just the missing dlc right now.

edit: I don't have any mods in the game btw.
edit 2: do you happen to know which SP/F/G folders in the ultimate fix contain these missing stuff packs, or where I can find a list?

Hi, 

I think re-installing everything again would be a good idea. The thread here includes what SPs are included in the Game Pack. And you can download the games here.



I'm sorry I couldn't be of much help since MAC isn't really my specialty.
