View Full Version : Problem with CC not working, am I a tard?
20th Mar 2012, 4:03 AM
Ok. I know how to mod the sims 3 but for some reason (even though I followed the guide...http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Files/Setup_and_Files ) I can't get it to work now. Just last week I had all sorts of stuff and I started having the 'my sim wont go to work' glitch and I read it was from bad CC. Which I have dozens. So I just uninstalled and deleted it all from my pc.
Now i'm just trying to get one package file to work but it doesn't. I went to my documents/electronic arts/sims3/ and put Mods then Packages and I placed the cfg file in mods and my package file in packages but when i start my game its not there.
Side note I have ambitions, late night, and pets in that order and I always use the pets launcher is this my problem?? Please correct me if im making this mistake.

You...uninstalled the whole game because you had a bad mod?
Why didn't you just delete the...mods?

I probably have around 150 sim packs and an additional 50 or more package files installed and I had no idea which one was causing the problem so I just started from scratch. Anyway. I also checked and my game is completely up to date all the way up to 1.33 released on the 15th. What could possibly be the problem with my package files? Right now with my fresh install and patches I'm trying to get only 1 to work. This package file always worked before and would even show up when i started the game as being functional but now it doesn't. I'm doing everything the same as a week ago before my problems. Now this is the only problem i have.
Please help me with my problem, not criticize me for being an idiot. Because we all do it. :)

There was a new patch since last week, are you sure the mod you are trying to install is updated?

I thought that maybe the patch had something to do with it. The guide I linked in my first post said to DL this frameworks file and follow the instructions and so i did but even the simple nointro.package doesn't work. Is it possible that the mts files i dl are out of date or is it my pc. the game works fine and i have no problems. except that i can't use package cc. my simpack cc works and shows up though.

OMG. I fixed it. I don't know why but ok. In my old backup files from before I took the Resource.cfg file which was 836kb and put it in my fresh files and now my package files show up. The two cfg files were different by about 50kb for some reason. what the crap..?
20th Mar 2012, 6:23 AM
Well, I'm glad your old cfg file is working, but the cfg file is only a text file with about 5 to 10 lines of commands in it (some folks might get fancy and have different priorities set for different folders, but it still is NOT a LOT of stuff to add up to 800 kb) . My file is 1 kb in size. I'd be a little concerned about what all that several hundred kb consists of.
20th Mar 2012, 6:31 AM
Wow!! My Resource.cfg file is only 1kb as well. HEre's the content of it:
I don't know that it should have anything more. This is my original cfg file from June 3, 2010 that makes 2.41GB of compressed .package files show up in my game.

I think he just mistook kb for bytes. My Resource.cfg is also 1kb, but it's a rounded up number, in the Properties the file has exactly 836 bytes.

This is the resource cfg file in the framework setup. If you are using one similar to what lisfyre posted it would explain why the size is a bit different. I use this cfg file and it works just fine in my game. Nothing fails to show up.
