Sims 3 Complete Collection CC Issue

Post by crazyinpink on Sat 13 Jan 2018, 06:07

Hi! So I downloaded the complete collection a few days ago (freaking love it so far). I only have one tiny issue, and it's so incredibly bizarre, and I've tried everything to fix it. I have about 100 mods in my folder, but only less than half of them actually show up in game. These mods are only female hair and worlds...that's it. Male hair, shows up. Lots and clothing...fine. Script mods...dandy. Just female hair and worlds. I have nraas master controller. I've also tried reinstalling the mod folder and deleting scriptCache.package several times...hair and worlds still wont show up. Any advice for me?

Please?

Welcome to G4TW forum @crazyinpink and sorry for the late reply.

In which folder are you dragging the "mods"? Because worlds, hairstyles, clothing, furniture, lots... Should be in .Sims3Pack format, and NOT in .package format.
If you got the right Sims3Pack files, then drag to following location: C:\(My)Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads.
Open the launcher and from the left menu select DOWNLOADS. Select what to install or select all and click on install and just wait.

That's only partially true; the worlds that are provided by most uploaders are indeed in .sims3pack format, but theoretically you can convert them to .package/.world format, for easier installation.

And there are actually quite a lot of .package file CC items. Games4theworld's complete store torrent for example included 5 big .package files, that contain most store items (worlds are provided as .sims3pack files).

The disadvantage of .package files is, if you have too many of them, they can slow down your game. Which is why you can and should merge hairstyles, clothing, skins, etc. But you shouldn't merge mods.

You can also use CC Magic for installing .sims3pack files (except worlds):

Do you need any further Support or can we consider the topic "solved"?
