This user has the following games installed:

Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time, Apartment Life
Default Kitchen & Bath SP Content Missing
I installed K&B SP a week ago - no problems. Played yesterday - redid an entire kitchen with the SP - no problem. Today I went ingame to play and was surprised to discover that all the items that came with the SP had vanished from my buy mode catalogue as well as the lot I was playing. The SP is definitely installed (see image) and the Collection folders are still there - but the folders are empty! I have no idea how this happened or what caused it to occur. I removed all CC from my D/L folder and tried again - still no luck.

So what have I done to the game since yesterday? Installed Selzi's replacement face templates, and matching walls and floors for K&B Stuff. I also used SimPE to extract 1 ingame sim. (I have the lastest SimPE). Could one of these actions have caused my weird problem. And how can I fix it? I am not too thrilled about uninstalling... so any suggestions would be most welcome.

Any and all suggestions would be most welcome.

Have you tried installing Kitchen & Bath again? No need to uninstall it first, just install over the top.

Okay - it would not let me re-install without first uninstalling. So I have reinstalled and the content is showing ingame. I must have had a glitch during the original installation - as I now noticed a few items in the catalogue that did not show up before.

Thanks for the advice. I just hope it does not happen again!

I did hear of this happening to someone with the anygame starter, as it is not updated to K&B I believe.

I will choose a path that's clear- I will choose free will

I currently do not have the Anygame Starter installed (although it was installed when I originally installed the SP), and now sadly the SP content has mysteriously vanished (again) since last night...
Oh well, until I find a solution I will simply do without it.

Have you tried bypassing the launcher? There are instructions here for doing it with BV, just substitute the folder and exe file for K&B (whatever that is): Game Help:Bypassing Bon Voyage Launcherwiki.

whiterider: I'll try that now - will post if I have any success. Thanks for all the help so far

**Edit**

Nope, tried it - no luck - at least that got rid of the silly launcher

Yes, thats me!

Ok for the person who started the thread (sorry forgot your user name!) do you have the AnyGameStarter on your PC? If so I think this one of the majour problems why K&B is not showing. On the thread it does clearly state do not install if you have any EP/SP newer than FREETIME. I was stupid and installed it anyway and thats why my K&B stuff dissapeared. If you think this is why your K&B stuff had gone dont worry easily fixed.

Life is a curious game..
