Super annoying problem with EA Store content .

Post by xAmit6X on Thu 13 Dec 2012, 11:30

Hello everyone !

First of all , I'll say sorry about the horrible English , I'm young Asian kid XD

I got a problem with EA content .
When I download a house from the Exchange , There's a list over there of store items & expansion packs & stuff pack which used in this house .

BEFORE I download a house , I check if I got all the store items that the house requires , and if I got the expansion & stuff packs .

Now when I know I have all the items which the house requires , I download it and install it via the launcher . It said that the installation of the house was a success (I mean it didn't get failed , SORRY FOR BAD ENGLISH :[)

When I place the house [from the library] in a lot , I put my family there . Then I choose it as my households .

Then , I see , ALL of the Store content , only the store content , got replaced by base game items . It happens to me all the time , In every house from the exchange . It's super annoying cause I buy Store content with my money for nothing . I REALLY want it will show up in game . [The expansion & stuff pack items DIDN'T get replaced , only the store items got replaced] .

Sorry again for the bad English , Thanks in advance for all the helpers !

Hello,

From your post I take it that you're using legit games and legit store content.
Perhaps the person who put the items on the exchange did not, decrapped store content may not be recognized by the game, and replaced by proxies (the base game stuff).
The only thing you could do, is replace those proxies with the store content that you bought.

First , Thanks for fast answer ^_^
Second , Yes , I use legit games , But - not all of my store content are legit - some of them are legit and the others aren't legit .
Well , If the person (who published the house) used legit store items and I used decrapped items (and a little part of legit items) that means that only the legit items will be replaced and the decrapped not ? (SORRY FOR HORRIBLE ENGLISH)

Is there a way that I can "make the game feels" like my decrapped sets are legit ?
Or a way that will make the game NOT replacing the files ?

Thanks in advance .

No, the only way to get those items in the house would be to place them yourself. It's one of the biggest downfalls of using the decrapped store items. Or you could create your own houses, using the content. Then it would definitely stay in place.

As long as the items that you have are also all decrapped, correct.

I converted the house + the store items into package files and it's still didn't work = But I didn't decrapify the items so WHY ISN'T IT WORKING ?!

If the sims3pack was already decrappified, then the package is also counted as such.

Hello,

Then maybe the house wasn't. The only way you can make sure that it's not caused by decrap conflicts, is to decrap every sims3pack you own, and decrap everything you download from the exchange as well.
