How to install decrapified store contents(sims3pack) successfully?
« on: 2012 October 24, 15:50:22 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I downloaded a store content pack with all those store contents in .sims3pack form.
At first I tried to install all of them in the same time. Obviously this failed. Then I found out the launcher is bad and you have to install files in small chunks.

So I installed the 5G pack 200MB by 200MB. However a lot contents still didn't show up in the game. And a lot of stuff won't show as installed in the "download" tab of the launcher.

Then I deleted the whole "The Sims 3" folder in my documents and reinstalled again. I realized somehow the installation will "go bad" when the .dbc files have reached around 1.5G no matter what.

Basically my problem is the same as the one described here.

Does anyone know how to install properly?

Thanks.

Previous discussions on this topic indicate that higher end machines can and do install everything at once, and have no such limitations on the size of the resulting dbc's. The problem you're describing is the result of the limitations of your hardware (and, to a lesser degree, to a badly coded Launcher, which nevertheless works alright if your computer does not suck).

As for stuff not showing up in-game, sounds like you've got PEBKAC gumming up the decrapification process.

I think my machine is more than enough to handle The Sims 3.
My specs:
i7 2600
GTX 590
8G ram
Intel 510 SSD
Windows 7 x64

I've asked other people using the same content pack as mine. They seem to be fine. If you mean there's PEBKAC does that mean I should decrapify all the sims3pack by myself again?

Thanks.

No. He means he thinks you're probably doing it wrong in the first place. What do you mean decrapify yourself? If somebody else decrapified these before you got them then there's your first problem.

Yeah, of course it can "handle" TS3. Read conversations between members here, however, and it is obvious that your specs play a major role in how well the Launcher functions. My computer's specs exceed those of your own in several respects and it still can't handle Launcher installations as well as some better machines can; ask Witch. The Launcher is shit and simply does not work as well as you seem to think it "should" unless you've got a really good machine.

And yeah, there's a reason why you're not supposed to download decrapified files. I don't *think* decrapifying them again will help if they were already decrapified using an outdated s3rc (correct me if I'm wrong, someone). Just download the raw files like everyone else. If we're misinterpreting and you *did* start with raw files, then PEBKAC still stands as the most likely issue. Make sure you're using the proper tools, and using them correctly. The instructions are right there.

I call PEBCAK because you mention decrapped sims3packs in the title, yet make no reference at all whether or not you actually decrapped them. If you didn't yourself that's PEBCAK, if you did decrap them, then that's still PEBCAK. If you found them somewhere else already derapped you should go ahead and just stay away from them and get the vanilla ones here. The launcher works just fine, most of the time, just use it for store stuff only and you should be fine. Remeber to keep EVERYTHING up to date.
