A problem with mods and cc!

Post by mirarara on Sat 27 Jan 2018, 07:55

mods dont show up in the launcher!
Ive tried everything, delete the folder, get a new one, even re install the whole game.
my mods folder is in C:\Users\(my name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\ and yes, i have the resorce.cfg file and an  overrides folder and a packages folder in it. i only have nobuildsparks.package and nosparks.package in the Packages folder, the overrides folder is empty.
when i open the sims 3 launcher i dont see them in the downloads, installed content or uploads. and obviously, they dont show up in-game either. i get an " unable to connect to origin" error, could that have anything to do with it?
please help! WhatDidUJustCallMe?

what my documents folder looks like:

Hello @mirarara and welcome to the Forum,

From what I can see, you set up the mod framework correctly. Keep in mind that nobuildpsarks.package is really just an optical effect: the mod removes the little stars that show up when destroying or placing items from build-/buymode. I don't know what nosparks.package does, maybe something similar though, given its name?

There is a better way to test your mod framework though:
https://goo.gl/WK86V8

Download this mod here and install it (correctly). Then you start up the game. Does the game skip the video intro? If so, then congratulations: you set up the mod framework correctly.

Also keep in mind that not all mods are shown in the window popup in the game; you would actually have to see whether they show up in-game.

Thank you for the quick reply!
i tried that mod and it worked! i thought i was never going to get mods or cc in the game since in the past when i played the game i always remember having to install them after putting them in the mods folder.
thank you for helping me!

Do you have any further questions for the moment, or can we mark the topic as "solved"? Smile
