View Full Version : Installed content not showing in Body Shop or in game? HELP?
21st Mar 2012, 6:42 PM
I downloaded a school from this site and some Sims from the Sims 2 Exchange. I double-click them while they're in my Downloads folder, and the Sims 2 Package Installer says that the content was successfully installed. I open Body Shop, but my Sims weren't there! And when I ran the game, the school wasn't where it should be (Lots and Houses bin)! Does anybody know why this is happening and how I can fix it?
The Sims I downloaded have hairstyles and clothes I've wanted for a long time, and I need the school for a series I'm working very hard to make! :cry:

You did make sure that they didn't require an EP or SP you don't have? A lot of stuff is being made for AL or M&G, and your profile doesn't show that you have those.

Are the sims Young Adult? If they are, then they will only show up in a University neighborhood CAS or in BodyShop under the YA category. As for the school. Is it a residential or community lot?

The school is a residential lot. And I've checked the ages for the Sims and the EP's required, but they have no required EP's and I have their ages! And I don't know what AL and M&G is, can you please explain those to me?

The most common reason why a sim won't show up in CAS/BodyShop is because they are a Young Adult sim. Those are created specifically for the University neighborhoods that are from the University EP (and only show up in those neighbohood CAS or under YA in Bodyshop). You don't have that expansion listed in your profile. Do you have that EP installed and just not listed here or not have it installed at all?

I don't have University installed at all. Although I am planning to purchase it sometime, but not at this time.

(Your translator program did a very bad job with your post.)
It appears that you are asking how to put your backup of your saved game and your downloads back into your game. If that really is what you are asking, it depends on how you backed them up.
If you simply renamed the Sims 2 folder, you can remove the new Sims 2 folder and give your backup the original name. (I have no idea what it would be in French.)
If you moved the whole folder you can delete the new folder and move the old one back.
If you simply copied the contents of the Sims 2 folder, you can delete the sub-folders in the Sims 2 folder that you have copies of, but keep the Sims 2 folder itself. Then you can put your copies back into the Sims 2 folder.
Whatever you do, clear your cache before you start the game again, and be sure to re-enable custom content. Then make sure everything is still working the way it was when you tested it. (You did say you tested it without the downloads, didn't you?) It will take a longer time loading the first time, because it is regenerating the cache and then automatically updating the neighborhood you loaded.
Hopefully you won't have anything that doesn't work properly anymore. (although you might need to check your refrigerators.) Enjoy the new EP,and all the silly things that weather does.

As long as everything from your backup ends up returned to the place that it originally came from, and everything that the game put there while you were testing it is taken out, you should be fine.

Perhaps you should post in your native language and include the English translation. We have a number of people who speak other languages and someone may be able to provide us with a better translation.
