PostSubject: Missing worlds and store items   Tue Dec 13, 2016 5:39 pm

I'm trying to get my TS3 game playable again.  Both my computers have the same problem.  Game is missing all store bought and free worlds and also most of the store bought items which is a lot of the fun of the game. I haven't found this particular problem on the TS3 forum and EA HELP had me jumping through hoops to no good.  Things show up in the launcher inventory but no in the game.  Sunset Valley world is there twice in the main menu but one is called Adventureland and that cannot be deleted.  I have removed content not original to the game, taken out the downloads folder to start over, deleted, re-downloaded. The game was reinstalled on the laptop but the same problem still exists.  I believe this is EA's fault but I can't fix it nor find anyone who knows what's causing it.
 The greenhouse was in community lots so I put it on a lot but it didn't have the glass door or windows and those items weren't in inventory.  This is so frustrating, and depressing.
    Any thing to be done?

Sims 3 store content will not install

Try the following:
 

  • Close your game and launcher
  • Go to documents\electronicarts\thesims3 and move the folder DCCache to your desktop (this is ALL your custom content, so if you have 3rd party content as well, you might wanna just move the *.ebc files as well as the missingdeps.idx)
  • If you have any worlds installed go to the installedWorlds folder and delete all Store worlds from there.
  • Go to the DCBackup folder and delete everything in there. You don't really need the stuff in here except for the ccmerged file but since you're reinstalling everything, it will be recreated.
  • Open the launcher and start reinstalling all store stuff in groups. Don't install all in one go. Start with the worlds, then lots, then sets and single items last

Thank you EQ. I bet I have those instructions written down someplace in my massive TS3 notebook. Although there are a few of those instructions I don't remember being instructed to do. Anyway, I know it must all be done again. I tried to just have the base game and World Adventures installed to play but I wasn't able to do that. Doesn't make sense when I continually get the advice to just play a 'few' for better game play. Poophy! Used to be able to play with them all.
I did see that when I installed an item ( from the launcher) It never unchecked after it was supposably installed. I often ended up with 2 of the same in the ea game downloads inventory file.
( Hope to be back posting here sooner than last time. /Gotta go cause have company coming any minute.)
