You have to patch twice.
Whats up with that then? Run the same patch twice, or two different ones?  Tongue

So, in order for TSR's files to work... they have to use AM? Suddenly EA's total ineptness has gotten much more entertaining.

ETA: Never mind, misunderstood what Pescado was saying. Regardless, the irony of TSR trumpeting .sims3packs as the way to go is pretty entertaining stuff.

Okay, so I found out what happened to all the .Sims3packs. The EA launcher, and the game itself, no longer correctly reads them. Anyone, most noteably TSR, who relies on them, is now fucked. A workaround exists, but it involves DARK SORCERY and ELDRITCH ABOMINATIONS, so that's right out for TSR. But I fixed it.

That means another patch is probably going to have to be released immediately. When in doubt wait and then doubt more.

Wow. EA really hates CC. First they make packages cause issues, then sims3packs. >>

I'm close to burnout and am a poor overworked 3D student.
Therefore my brain is not working right.<

Still not showing my Buy Mode CC (furniture, etc). I'll try a few more things, but still no luck at this point.

What does the AM update fix?  Does it make the CC work again?  Ohh come on tell me!
No, this AM update just makes the game itself work. Fixing CC requires DARK SORCERY and ELDRITCH CHICANERY involving file manipulation, and is not for dummies. Like you. Do you look anything like your avatar? Because your avatar has a really stupid look on her face.

Make a tool? Or will I have to launch S3pe/oc to fix it?

Hmm .. Would extracting all the sims 3 packs as package files in the mods folder help in anyway?

That's exactly what I was going to say. It should all be in DCBack in your My Documents folder. I'll give it shot.

Seriously, we are a couple and we post on the net as a couple so you never know which you are talking to.  Not that there's a lot of difference, we're both stupid!

OWWWW!!  *Gets hit around the head by wife who doesn't agree with above generalisation!*





Yikes, that was sickening... You've just caused my eyes and brain some serious offence there. Well done.

Trashcans, dumb fuck. As in, be made a Retardo Lander. If you continue to act like an imbecile in order to be "cute", ignore the most basic rules of grammar, and double-post, you just might find it happening to you.

Ok.. in my attempt to copy ALL package files from DCBackups to my Mods/Packages/Sims3Package folder.. I caused some REALLY odd behavior.. HOWEVER, my furniture showed up again. lol... god damn it. Now I have to figure out where the problem is.. maybe deleting the files in DCBackup will help..

I would be interested in whether or not converting sims3packs to packages is a workable solution. I believe the most recent patch (well, before this apocalypse-inducing one) caused some pretty severe lag whenever there were files in the Mods folder that had been converted from sims3packs. I know I had to do some major cleaning in order to get my game to even load.

I'm about to scream... I keep getting the infamous crash at loading the neighbourhood.... yargh.

Fresh install too... with no mods, all patched up, and no CC except riverview.

EA are so infuriating.

well I don't think the vanilla players are very happy either as I currently cannot access the official forums...like that would provide anything other than mildly amusing entertainment...so then I went and checked TSR...amazingly quiet over there...almost like a ghost town, actually...

And when Pes said "Dark Sorcery & Eldritch Chicanery' first thing popped into my head was PK Dick...so does one need LSD to make it work? I hope not.

I am waiting until the "all clear" is given...I don't care how long it takes. I'm not having EA screw my game up ever again.

So far, CAW is easy to use. I have used dev tools in the past, and this is by far the most straight forward thing I have seen. Still uses the same rules, mouse wheel zooms, ctrl + right click moves the map...so it shouldn't take anyone determined very long to master.
I am currently trying to locate where the patches auto-update to, because they seem to be insidious things that I am not sure if I wish to inflict on anyone. Except TSR.

Can you edit Sunset Valley or Riverview? Not from a piece of land with terrain paints, but the ones with roads and lots and everything else that we got from the game.

Could somebody direct me to a download for the patch of just the base game without WA? I'm assuming the earlier post that had the download link was for WA, unless it can also be used for the base game. Thanks in advance. Smiley

Lion, there are the templates for Sunset Valley and Riverview, they only have terrain paints and roads, you have to place all deco, trees, and lots.
