World Problem.[SOLVED]

Post by deblake60 on Mon 31 Dec 2012, 15:53

I guess i never noticed the problem I am about to describe, since I mostly play the world of Moonlight falls.

Anyway,I decided to goto Lunar Lakes, but to my surprse there was a gold coin beside it and I couldn't open it. I had an old Sim from a previous Lunar lake and I tried to click on the quick start and I received a message that stated Lunar Lakes wasn't installed. I know it was installed, duh! I played it before.

Also, besides Lunar lakes, Hidden Springs, Sunlit Tides and Lucky Palms had done the same thing.

I went to the mediasite to download and hopefully to reinstall them, but I am still seeing the gold coins and it wants me to use simpoints to purchase the world.

Any ideas?



Hope every had a Great Christmas and have a safe and Happy New Year!

Go into the in-game options, and turn off the in-game store. Smile

Hello,

It's in the in-game options, third tab. Should be called something like "Enable shop mode".

It worked to a degree. I don't see the gold coins, but now I have two of each of the worlds I attempted to install. Not too sure how to weed one of the extras out without messing up my games.

I can live with it though! Thanks bunches!

Hello,

See if you have 2 copies of the world file in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\InstalledWorlds.

Hello there,

Then remove the duplicates. That should do the trick.
