View Full Version : Most mods not showing up.
27th Feb 2012, 11:55 AM
I just got the sims 3 base game and updated it to the current patch level. I tried following the "instal custom content" and successfully installed the "no intro" and "no wall sparkle" test mods and they work fine.
But when I tried to add another mod (mastercontroller) it just didn't show up in game. The other mods worked. So I tried another mod (dexter) and it didn't show up ether.
I followed the FAQ section and it got me nowhere.
I am running the sims 3 base game (patch 1.29.55) on a mac running snow leopard.
Help would be great.

Sims 3 - Verify Package Installation
To help you further, please carefully read and follow the following:
First, double-check your setup: These instructions will take you through the things you should check yourself: Package Files Not Working (http://www.simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Files/Not_Working). You may be able to fix the problem yourself using those instructions.
Still not working? Then we will need ALL of the following information.
What is the version of your base game and any/all expansions?
Windows OS: Game_Help:TS3_Patching_Find_Gameversion
Mac OSX: Game_Help:TS3_Patching_Find_Gameversion#info.plist
Copy and paste the indicated line from the skuversion.txt or info.plist from the following locations, for ALL games you have (adapt as appropriate for OSX):
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 <EP or SP name>\Game\Bin
BG: GameVersion =
WA: GameVersion =
HEL: GameVersion =
AMB: GameVersion =
FL: GameVersion =
LN: GameVersion =
OL: GameVersion =
GEN: GameVersion =
TL: GameVersion =
Take THREE screenshots... one each of the following locations:
Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\
Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\
Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages
... and attach them to a post on this thread. Click Go Advanced and then Manage Attachments. Or if it says the pictures are too big, you can upload them to modyourpanties.com and copy and paste the links.
We have a guide on how to take screenshots if you need assistance: Game_Help:Screenshots.
Make sure you set your folder view to Details mode, that you have file types showing (.package, .cfg, etc. on the ends of the filenames) and expand out the Name and Type columns so they're fully readable!
Open your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\resource.cfg file in Notepad and copy-paste its contents here.
Right-click on Resource.cfg and check Properties. Is the file name Resource.cfg or Resource.cfg.txt or something else?
I know you cannot do the Dashboard Dump method, so the pictures would have to suffice. Which was asked in the Announcement and the New Thread before you posted, in any case...which would have been great if it was followed without me having to repeat it.
