Hello,

That's a result of playing with mods. It takes longer to load. The "grey lumps" are caused by the game taking some time to render the objects. it could also be mod/packages related and there's not much you can do.

Yes yes. It looks like I can now paste the saves and downloads to the new folders. But is it worthwhile to also put back the DCCache in the new folder? If I have to install all the sims3packs again, there will be a lot of work with that then : (

Hello,

You can try it for sure. It's the DCBackup folder by the way, I see I made an error in my reply about that.

I pasted the DCBackup files into the folder, and I also pasted the saves and downloads. This time the game was even slower : ( And some items couldn't be shown. So I guess I have to install the downloads again, so that everything would work right?

Hello,

That is, sadly, the next step. it will unfortunately take a while if you want to do it right. I just spend 2 days doing this myself (I have almost 500 sims3packs).
The way to do this is 20 at the time. Otherwise, not everything may install correctly.

Make sure you have a backup of all your sims3packs in storage before you begin. The Downloads folder in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 should be empty. Have a temporary folder with all your sims3packs ready.

-Open both the empty Downloads folder, and the temporary folder with sims3packs.
-Go into the temporary folder, select (at most!) 20 sims3packs, rightclick and cut. Don't use copy, you'll want to make sure you're not giving yourself extra work, so by choosing cut, these 20 will be removed from your temporary folder.
-Paste the sims3packs in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads.
-Open the launcher, navigate to the downloads tab, select all sims3packs and install.
-Wait for the installation to finish and when done, click ok. There's no need to close the launcher.
-Delete the installed sims3packs from Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads
-Back to the temporary folder, select the next 20 sims3packs, paste in the downloads folder, return to the launcher, select all sims3packs and install, rinse and repeat.

Hello,

Then apply the latest version of the "Store Fixes", that's it. Or do you mean another "Next step"?

Is there anything else we can currently help you with?

No, I just thought that there would be another "next step".. Now I just have to test the game.

EDIT: I got a big problem. I tried to start the game, but it said something about the seasons disc, that it's missing/required to start the game. What could be wrong here?

Hi,

Thanks a lot for your help (!), the game started and worked fine when I tested it. It was even a little bit faster than the last time I played, which was a few months ago. (But it looks like there's unfortunately still the problem with the objects, because they won't load fast enough, and appears as gray =(

Hello,

Glad to hear that at least the game starts up fine.
Sorry if this has been asked before, but what items don't show up correctly? Are those Premium Items? If yes, try the "Store Fixes" from our official MediaFire account here: mediafire.com ?8hvd25izaiea4

The more items you have in the game, the longer it will take to render the items. All you're seeing when the items are grey is that the game is loading them. If they're grey for longer than a few seconds, a minute, max, that's when you need to be concerned. As it stands, I would recommend going through your cc, and removing what you don't need/absolutely love.

Hi,

I noticed another odd thing in the game. There's an odd wall like gray thing in the game.

Here are some pictures: http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/18/19/92/50/screen11.jpg

And then another problem occured yesterday. When I tried to quit the game and save, there came an info screen that told me about an error code 12, and that more info is available in the readme file.

The explonation in the file didn't explain really good what the problem is about. So Do you know what error code 12 means?

^ I've been experiencing that lately as well, as far as what I've read in some sites dedicated to Sims 3 and the official forums, they usually say that it's caused by insufficient memory and/or RAM. Try using these suggestions by Lady ElDi

Error 12 is definitely a RAM/memory issue. The best way to fix that is to get rid of expansions and other additional content. However, NRaas has a couple mods that can help prevent the error.

Yesterday it was very annoying when sims 3 "crashed" at least 3 times under the day. You know, windows just pops up the message "the 'program' stopped working". It's so disturbing when you have played for a while and then suddenly the game crashes and you haven't been able to save the game.

Does anyone have a clue what could cause this?

The only time I get frequent crashes is when I have "testingcheatsenabled true" on. Have no idea why that makes it happen.

Yeah I think you're right. I've been thinking too if the codes could have something to do with the "crashing"...
