Loading stuck at end of bar and store content

Post by niko of death on Wed Oct 10, 2012 5:19 pm

I have installed the Sims 3 and all expansions (no stuff packs)

When I load a world other than sunset valley (expansion pack worlds) it starts loading but stops at the very end. I've tried everything I have found on the forums, to no success.

I am also having issues with the store content.

I installed the mod framework, put all the store content into the packages folder, and none of it shows in game. How do I fix this?

The store content actually doesn't go into the mods folder, since it's all sims3packs, and not package files. It goes into the pre-created downloads folder, and has to be installed using the game launcher.

Do you have any mods or cc?

And how long are you giving it to load after it's become "stuck"? The first time loading those worlds can be pretty daunting for your computer.

I removed all mods and cc to see if it would help, so I don't.

I have given it around an hour 45 min to load.

Ok. I just wanted to make sure, because some people have said it was stuck, and were only letting it sit for a couple minutes.

Are all of the other parts of the expansions working? Like, in create a sim or in buy mode, do you have pieces with their mark on it?

Yes. I have supernatural sim options, pets, late night zodiac, body hair, and all the special outfits.

EDIT: Now I'm having problem with the store content. I can get most of it to work, but Sunlit tides and Lucky Palms cannot even be installed, even though it is my downloads folder.

EDIT 2: Odd, they appear to be working now! I still have the issue above, and my store worlds are shown twice for some reason.

To fix the worlds showing up twice, go into your installed worlds file in the sims 3 folder and delete the duplicates. Smile

I'm actually not sure how to help with the loading bar being stuck, so somebody else will have to help you there.

The loading bar problem stopped, but even though sunlit tides and lucky palms are in my installed worlds folder, they aren't in the game.

Still does not work. They appears under downloads as objects. The .worlds are placed in installedworlds, but do not work in game.
