Store Content not appearing in-game.[SOLVED]

Post by mac_attack on Sun 08 Jul 2012, 00:16

I have downloaded some store content from mediafire.com ?y8uy4gu2y8jqt#y8uy4gu2y8jqt and the first thing I wanted to install was Barnacle Bay, I installed it fine but when I open the game it's not there and when I quit the game and reopened the launcher it wasn't in the installed content section. I re-installed it and still the same problem occured. I cleared my caches, uninstalled the world and re-installed it and I'm still having the same problem. Any help?

Hi,

After uninstalling, deleting caches again and the old Barnacle Bay file and re-downloading it, I attempted to install again but this time it says failed when I try to install it.

Hello,

Did it fail for any particular reason, or was it a "software failure
".

Hi,

It doesn't give a reason it just says 'Failed'

Hello,

Did you get your sims3packs here?
Never mind, you did indeed. I'm a little lost at the moment. You didn't delete the worldcaches right?

Hi,

I managed to install a DJ Booth but when I opened the game it wasn't there and after closing the game and reopening the launcher the DJ Booth had disappeared from the installed content folder but was still in the downloads folder.

When I opened the launcher a store content patch update popped up but I clicked the 'Later' button as I was unsure of whether it would affect what I'm trying to do. A new software update has also started popping up when I open the launcher. Do I need to install either of these updates?

When I try and update its says that some files are modified so it was unable to update ?

Hello,

There's a manual patch for MAC here and the fix has also been updated for MAC.
You can safely accept the patch for store content.
Perhaps the patch helps, not sure that it will though, I'm a little lost at the moment.
As for alternatives, you can try to find Merlin for MAC. I have a downloadlink for Merlin in this post, but I think it's for PC only. I haven't been able to find a version for MAC.
If all else fails, try to find store content in package format.

Hello,

Are you installing them all at once?

Hi,

no one at a time, just to see if it worked. I've tried installing other objects and found that some work and some don't so I guess I'll just download what I want and see what will work and what won't WhatDidUJustCallMe?. Not really sure what is causing the problem but I will download some of the latest store content as the objects I was trying to install were some of the older content.

//EDIT

Hi,

No worries everything is now working, I re-downloaded all the store content again and everything installed and is working in-game. Thanks for your help Smile
