Launcher and CC/downloads

Post by mryza on Thu 06 Sep 2012, 20:15

First off, this place is amazing and thank you for all you do to help!

Basically, when I install a Sim from the exchange, everything goes well and it shows up under installed, and works perfectly in-game. The only problem is, instead of breaking down piece by piece in the launcher, the sim installs as a pack, so I can't remove the custom clothing it comes with. All the custom clothes are lagging my CAS. =[

I also have a problem where when I download some items, it'll say installed and show up in the game, but when I close and re-open the launcher is says it's not installed. It's not a problem because I can remember not to install it again (and it works in-game), I'm just wondering if there's a way to make everything install cleaner.

I did end up re-installing all my games recently and I even deleted the documents folder to let it make a new one before I went through and re-installed all my content, and I'm still having these issues.

Any help will be appreciated, thank you!

There's nothing you can really do about the custom clothing, outside of opening the file and taking those items out, but I'm not sure if you could even do that with a .sim file.

What I did, when I installed using the launcher, was after I installed everything, I'd move everything out of the downloads folder to a backup location so that the objects didn't show up in the downloads tab with that exclamation point. If they're staying installed in-game, that's all that matters, and this way you have a backup of all your download files just in case. Smile

This thread also has some good tips on keeping cc installed, and organized for your game. I personally use ccmagic and love it, but I know a lot of people find it more hassle than what they want to put in.
