Can't install sims3pack!

Post by Castya on Sat 03 Nov 2012, 15:22

Hi! I have been a lurker for a long time, but now I finally decided to register to the forum because I have this problem that I don't know how to solve Sad
I downloaded all my games from here, and I downloaded a lot of stuff of your mediafire account, but my sims3pack won't install anymore! I put them in the 'downloads' folder and installed them in the launcher and it said that they were installed, but if I closed the launcher and opened again, they were uninstalled. So I tried what it said in the thread "Sims3pack/installed world inaccessible or wont install fix." and after I uninstalled everything, I could install again... and I installed a lot of things, but the problem started happening again... I've tried everything! The 3viewer didn't help me and reinstalling the game didn't help me... I can't install thing, but the game seems to reach a limit and after that I can't install things anymore... any idea of what may be happening to my game? I aprecciate any sort of help Sad

P.D: I'm sorry for my awful english... I just hope it's understandable enough...

Hello,

See if they really don't show up in game. The launcher can be rather weird, showing items as "not installed" while in fact, they are.
If they really aren't, it's probably a good idea to install them in groups. I'm not sure how many sims3packs the launcher can handle at once, but there appears to be a limit on the number of sims3packs you can install.
You don't have to keep sims3packs in the downloadsfolder, so you could try say, 50 at a time, install with the launcher, remove from the downloadsfolder and add the next 50 to the folder.
I'd suggest a "staging area" where you cut&paste the sims3packs from (to the downloads folder) so you don't have to wonder whether you miss any. Keep everything stored somewhere though in case they need to be installed again.

For the best result limit your sims3pack installs to 50 or 60 at a time unless they are large files like lots and worlds. If they are lots and worlds them limit them to less than 100 MB of files at a time. Anything over those limits tends to cause the launcher to throw a hissy fit and crash.

And, as Lady ElDi suggested, have a staging area for your files. It helps a great deal, especially if you have a lot of sims3packs to install.

I've tried installing in groups of 200 MB before... still didn't work, I will try with smaller groups of 100 MB this time (: thanks for the help
