PostSubject: Stuck with CC   Sun Dec 16, 2012 6:50 pm

I wasn't sure where to post a question, I hope this is the right place. So far, I've stuck to my no CC rule, except for mods, sliders, yet I have this package file that shows up in my CAS.




It has a package icon on all versions, not just recolors.

I've pulled out all my mods, my DCBackup and all my caches. Is this an EA item? If so, why does it appear like a package file? It appears in all sections, not just swimsuit.

Does it show in your launcher at all? Can it be uninstalled from there?
I do not recognize that outfit even in the Showtime category.
From some of the information I have seen posted it is possible it could have been 'stuck' to something else.

Oh darn it....I don't recognize it either. That is so odd. Have you downloaded and thing from the exchange at all? Let me look around and see if I can find that item later this morning. I have to run my son to school soon.

You could do a Refresh and see if it is there and then add your mods one at a time and check after each one and see if it shows up. Then add each thing from the exchange, not just sims, one at a time and check. Problem is that things stick to creations and don't show up in the launcher and custard sometimes.

It's a package, not a sims 3 pack, so it can't be uninstalled from the launcher. I always use Custard, so maybe this is the dreaded stuck CC. I've already pulled out all my mods, removed the DCBackup. Maybe it was stuck to one of the worlds I downloaded. I might try the refresh. Thanks for your help.

I don't think it is EA.

I had stuff show up that was undeletable in game, but I found a way to get rid of it:


Export a Sim with the content from your CAS. - Exit game.
Then run the saved file through the Sims3 Cleaninstaller.
That should show you the name of the file.

Search the file on your computer, it can be there more than once, delete all those.
after that delete the saved Sim with the content from your Export file.

Your game should be freed from the unwanted file now.


I hope this helps.

I have some clothing attached to custom sims I've downloaded. It does not show in custard, but I know it appeared right after I installed the sims. I've been meaning to wash them using Crincrits method, but haven't yet.

I can't seem to find the exact post about washing them, but Lionpaws nifty method looks like it will do the trick. I'm going to try it.

Sims 3 Clean Installer? Do you mean Custard? I googled it and couldn't find anything. I'll try the method with custard and maybe Pack Extractor.

Yeah, I think it's Custard - I looked at the filename on my comp. Sorry for the confusion.
even if it is another program, you just need it to get the name of the file.

Good luck!

Tried exporting a sim with the CC, doesn't show up in Custard, looks like I may have to do a refresh.

Oh darn.

There is a program that will let you look at the sims3package. You might try looking at it this way.

Unpacking a Sim by Asiashamecca

I have not actually used it myself.

I tried that program too, it didn't show me anything. I finally refreshed the game, then I'll add sims, houses and worlds bit by bit. I suspect a world actually. If I find the culprit, I'll share here.

At least you have a fresh start. But it sure is a pain to do all that work.

So far, I think one of the problems was Dracul Isle. It has lots of CC attached. I think I'll also avoid Praaven as the same is true of that.

That is a shame. But at least you figured it out. Thank you for the update.

Well it may not be the worlds I accused Whistle . I got bolder and installed a bunch of items, store items and my own creations that checked out in Custard, but the item reappeared! My suspicions are "My Lord's Castle" "Neteri" and the "Kringle Family." I have more work to do.

All of these are older creations, but I've never really played a CC free game before, so I may not have noticed it. I have many times checked everything in Custard though.

OK, it was Neteri. I'll go delete her from my studio. I think it was my first upload actually. Who knew? scratch

I hope that's the end of it.
