help with sims 3 store content
« on: 2012 February 07, 00:44:37 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

So i've been downloading the sims 3 store stuff from here and various other places because i cannot be arsed to pay that much for stuff i want. Now i've installed them by putting them in my downloads folder, it says it's installed but cannot find it anywhere in my game. Then i've come across the software s3rc and decrapify. Now some of them actually work but others don't like the ones i actually really want such as Tip Top Toddler Collection and more magic the ultralounge collection.

Does anyone have any idea how i can actually fix this?

Don't be sorry, just go back and do it properly.

The downloads folder is basically a waiting area. They're not actually installed until you tell the Launcher to install them or you unpack the .package files and put them in your Mods/Packages. Since you decrapified them, I'm guessing you mean to use the Launcher.

I do tell the launcher to install it. those come in sims3pack format and it says first that it cannot be installed because I need an update. Then I run it through the s3c and Decrapify and it shows up in my launcher. Then I click install and it says it's installed. So I run the game and it's nowhere to be found. When I shut down the game for the night or because I have to work, it's back in the download tab in the launcher and it says it needs to be installed.

You are doing something wrong if it's not working, plain and simple.

Is your game patched all the way up to 1.29?  Usually when it tells you it needs an update, it means your game isn't patched correctly.

@ jeromycraig yes it is. It never tells me to update any patch. It just installs and then when i load it, it's not there and the next time I want to play, it's back in my downloads of the launcher. I have done a vanilla install, ran all my package files through dashboard, got rid of the corrupted files. Then i ran all my sim3pack files through cc magic. I got rid of those who were missing or unknown. Then I ran everything through s3rc and decrapify and it is still the same thing. I don't know what I'm doing wrong here.

And so am I, but only the ones from January and February 2012. The other sims3-packs do work. My game is completely patched.

I had this problem previously with no idea how to correct it... until now, that is. I was originally opening sims3packs on my desktop. Sure, they show up with the success window and everything but once the launcher quits, it uninstalls itself. I now place them in the Downloads folder in My Documents and it works fine once everything is decrapified and such.  

As for your problem, hellknowsimcoming, do you happen to have sr3c.exe and decrapify.exe in the Downloads folder? That's how my setup is and everything shows up fine in my game, including the More Magic Set.

I need to stop coming here before I have my coffee, because I totally failed to spork the OP for opening a new thread when there is a perfectly good Store Discussion thread.  DON'T DO THAT THING YOU DID FOUR DAYS AGO.

I always put all my sims3pack downloads into the downloads folder before even installing them. Yes they are in there and it's still not working.

@jeromycraig what do you mean when you say "don't do that thing you did 4 days ago?"
