This user has the following games installed:

Default custom world deco disappears in EIG??
okay so basically i plopped down some custom world deco items (some boats, retaining walls) and they were perfectly fine saving and coming back to later- until i opened EIG the next day to work on a lot. every custom/cc deco i had placed was straight up GONE. i checked regular caw when i exited EIG and they were still gone, even having been removed from the resource list.

AFTER


(you can also see that the embankment corner from ITF isn't showing- it's there, just disappears when zoomed out)

I don't remember this happening before, but this is really throwing a wrench in the whole project :/

I've had this happen before and what fixed it for me was to exit to the main menu then enter the game again. (I hope you saved your game after placing all those retaining walls?)

You probably get more help from the CAW forum.

I'm not trying to be anal about it, but this forum really is for technical issues about running the game. I'm just saying what you're looking for is other CAW users and creators. Some of them might also read this forum, but generally speaking certain members only read certain forums. This is why when someone needed my attention in another forum, like the creator forum once about megamalls, they tagged me and I went in. Otherwise I would never go there.

Just double checking, you had that CC in your regular game mods folder, too, didn't you?

could have sworn i did, but apparently not! hopefully once i put them in it works, but on that note: would the custom deco still need to be in the mods folder when the world is finished and exported, or is all the deco included in the .world/package file on export?

No, it won't be included. Any player will need the objects in their mods folder, too. They are not packed with the world.

This isn't the CAW forum, it is the general help forum. The CAW forum is in the Sims 3 Create Forums, 2 up from this one. So while you got your answer, Nitromon is correct that this was the wrong forum for the question.
