Quick Question About Launcher. [SOLVED]

Post by missbrittany85 on Wed 10 Oct 2012, 20:14

After installing CC through the Sims 3 launcher, is it okay to delete the "installed" files from the launcher or will that remove it from the game as well?

Once you install them with the launcher if they are in the Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads Folder, they aren't needed anymore, since they are changed around in function to make it easier for the game to load them, so Yes, you can delete them, recommend using the launcher, so it will only manage to delete the ones that you checked to confirm they installed.

Or you mean the "Downloads" part of the launcher not the "Installed Content" right? Since you need the ones in the "Installed Content" to have it in-game.

Yes, I'm talking about the "downloads" section of the installer. I have over a 1000 CC that have been installed over the last couple years and it's getting irritating to have to go through and find the "new" ones to install. I didn't know if after I installed them if I could remove it from "downloads" without removing it from the actual game itself.

Yeah, they aren't used in the game just in the launcher to show that you that they are in the "downloads" folder, once you do install them, they get extracted and changed around so The Sims 3 can use them more easily, and then put into the "installed content" area.

So yeah, if it's marked as Installed in the "Downloads" folder, The Sims 3 noticed it's installed, so no real need to keep it there.
