Um.. Guys-nGals? I don't think EA is gonna be able to fix this mess.

First, the site isn't giving file size during download. (You know 5mb of 70)
Second for some reason it's a numbered file name? Huh? Kinda points to a failed recovery of a very bad thing happening on the server.

Just went and did the save bit on Volcano Cove. (Been on the exchange since 2010)

Not pretty.
Exchange Page.

My local working copy. Reported in KB which roughly translated to MB is accurate to what the exchange is showing.


What I got?
144MB of corrupted useless garbage. DOH!

I am happy that I recently developed the habit of saving all of my creations to my computer as Sims3.packs for later use. Right before all this happened I downloaded some of my older creations for updating.
I have the awful feeling that none of this is going to be pretty.
I am seriously wondering if EA can fix this mess. Or will thousands and thousands of creations be forever lost?
Hmmm I wonder if they do a backup of all the exchange items before they 'fix' things.

Interesting. Add to game got me a file close to the reported size. (Only 2MB larger than expected.)
Custard shows the Cover thumbnail missing and the world file as corrupted. BUT it did install.

Ooo even loads up and runs. LoL. But why the larger size I wonder. OK. what kinda phone home stuff did they add to my world this time? ROFL!
What in the heck are those fools doing over there?

This will be very interesting to watch. If EA cannot fix it it will be a major hit on their reputation. Major. If all is lost I will redownload Xterra and the cruise ship and maybe the poolside club but am sure not going to try to do the other lots again.

What a nightmare!

Evidently it's been fixed. Just re-downloaded Daisylee's Cruise Ship "Save as", and all was fine this time.

EA seems to have resolved this issue.
