I CAN'T INSTALL LUCKY PALMS![SOLVED]

Post by Mera on Mon 02 Jul 2012, 18:44

I've absolutely tried everything. First I re-downloaded it from Mediafire & tried installing it through the Launcher but after Launcher installed it & said Successfully Installed, I clicked OK & then It crashed & didn't respond. I tried deleting DCCache & DCBackup folder & re-install it again but I got the same result. I tried installing it with TSR Merlin, turning into package, some CC installers, even this method from MTS (Which worked but very buggy, when I was clicking on sims, their name were like GameplayData/Sims/.../Somebody). Please, how can I solve this? And also, does your Lucky Palms have a red atmosphere at dawn?

Hello,

When you cleared the caches, did you also clear the InstalledWorlds folder?
I'd recommend clearing the caches again, but following these steps.

I did & no, it didn't work. I can see that the world is installed with its Objects & Sims files in Worldcaches folder & world file in Installed worlds folder but It doesn't show up in world list inside the game in worlds list.

//EDIT

No news? Very Happy

I deleted DCCache, DCBackup, Installed worlds, Library & Saved Sim folders & tried installing Lucky Palms & it didn't work. Perhaps I should have deleted them directly from Launcher, right? I thought deleting those DCCache & DCBackup folder will do it. And yes, I downloaded it from your Mediafire link.

Hello,

Yes you should uninstall it with the launcher first before clearing the caches.

After doing those steps that it worked, I started a new game with LP but again, it was buggy. Here, I took some photos:

Why are the names like that? And please answer these Qs:
-Is your Lucky Palms atmosphere in red color at Dawn in game?
-So I must re-install sims3packs if i want them again right? Can't I just copy & replace the DCCache, DCBackup & Installed worlds (that I had backed up after uninstalling them) with the empty ones? Just in case I want to undo everything I did.

//EDIT

Any Ideas? I was just playing Lucky Palms & let me tell you, the world was fabulous! I just want to get rid of those bugs that I've took pictures.

Hello,

I don't know about the atmosphere. Maybe that red colour is normal, since it probably has to resemble Las Vegas. I haven't played the world that much myself, only to run a few tests for the gambling skill problem.
I did encounter that other problem before. Not much I could find so far, though someone mentioned that it can help to turn off testingcheats. Seems a bit far-fetched though, but it doesn't hurt to try. Another suggestion was to clear the caches, but you just did that so it seems useless. Another person suggests that it could be caused by outdated or incompatible CC.
I'll look into it a bit more tomorrow, I seem to be a little preoccupied at the moment.
You can make everything right by changing them all individually, you'd need testingcheatsenabled true and shift-click each sim to edit them in game to change their name. It's time consuming, but that's what I did when I had this a couple of months ago in a custom world.

It's probably best to reinstall the sims3packs. If you copy the deleted caches etc. back you could have the same problem with Lucky Palms as before.

I really can't do that! It's not only a household, it's the WHOLE CITY! Including every community places, rabitholes, households, household & house names & their descriptions. They're all like that. I also had a autotestingcheatsenabled true mod that I deleted & did what you told. GOOOODDD. This frickin' game is driving me crazy. I've got lots of headaches since yesterday because of this problem. And I really appreciate your time & help here. I know that feeling of yours which you see a lot of problems from lots of users that you've seen those problems before & you have to tell them what to do and that's frustrating.
Whatever, let's stick to my problem. Very Happy

Hello,

Nahh, it's not that frustrating. I know how frustrating it can be to have a problem with a game you really want to play and it's not working right. it gives me great satisfaction when someone reports a problem solved Very Happy
Anyway, yes when I was playing my custom world it was also the entire city and I changed sims and lots one by one Shocked and it was a lot of work.
Lets see... what if you start a new game in the same world, do you have the same problem?

No, everytime I want to start a new game, it happens & in the same Lucky Palms. But It doesn't happen in the other worlds. Although, I should try starting the game with Riverview & other custom worlds & see if It'll happen again.

Alright, I just tried Riverview, Hidden Springs & Anne Arbor (One custom world) and I didn't face any problem. Everything was right. It's just LP that is like that.

Hello,

I almost wouldn't dare suggest it but I think what remains is uninstalling and reinstalling it.

Hello,

Just the world, since it's only this particular world that's giving you problems. And you'll have to clear the caches again before reinstalling it.

Hey there, I have re-installed it several times. But I couldn't see it in the game. Well, I think I may know where the issue comes from. Every time I wanna intall the world in Launcher, after It finishes installing it, I click OK but then it crashes & doesn't respond. And it's shown uninstalled in Launcher. This is not for Lucky Palms only but for all Sims3packs. How can I stop the launcher from crashing & not responding?

Hello,

Good question, the launcher appears to be the greatest mystery in the history of games Wink
How about installing them with Merlin, you had used that program before right?

Yes, but with Launcher I can easily see the list of the items that I've installed. And it's convenient to use. I know you're gonna suggest CCMagic but It seems I just can't get used to it & is not made for me Very Happy. I just want to know why Launcher keeps crashing after installing things. Why? What causes it?

//EDIT

I guess there is no way left other than uninstalling & reinstalling the game, ha?

Hello,

CCmagic doesn't install worlds though. You could try these.
