Empty Sims2Pack files?
« on: 2007 May 25, 03:55:24 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I just dl'd a bunch of walls and floors that were packaged in sims2pack files. I installed them using the content installer, fired up the WTF editor to rename them and.... they weren't there. None of them (I had dl'd like 50 or so). I did a whole disk search to see if they were installed somewhere else on the hard drive, and came up with nada. I dl'd them from tsr, no one had left any comments saying they had this problem. Is there a way to look inside the sims2pack files and extract them without using content installer?

Did you use the lousy installer that comes with the game, or did you use Clean Installer? If you used the former, your first step should be to use the latter.

If you used the maxis intaller they're probably in the teleport folder until you start up the game.

This happens there, not all the time but every now and then we see posts about it in the forums and I usually suggest people try getting it as a different file type if they can. It's often when the site (TSR) is busy but it's hard to tell really because we're all in different time zones anyway. Or it seems to happen when they're doing things 'behind the scenes' which the downloaders are obviously unaware of and couldn't try to avoid.
If I can avoid sims2packs from there I do to be honest, walls and floors you don't have much option though.
A couple of weeks ago a particular set I wanted wouldn't download properly no matter what I did, as in I varied the time of day over a couple of days. Then I saw they removed them so I assume they noticed a problem or were told.
For that it could even have been something wrong on the creator's end but they were regular uploaders so it's less likely, it's hard to judge.

When I get any now I check them as I download them with Clean Installer to make sure they actually contain something, which I know is very tedious but better than loading them all then going into the game and finding none or only some of them show up.

Don't you have to load your game and select the new walls/floors in-game before they'll show up in the WTF editor? I thought I remembered reading that somewhere.
