Store contents and dashboard

Post by kkaizer on Thu 19 Apr 2018, 20:48

Hello. I downloaded games4theworld sims 3 complete store and used dashboard to see if there's any conflict. It seems that several of those big 5 files and fix files are confilicting each other. Is this norml and ok to use it? 

Also, in the buy mode of the game, some items are duplicated. One has a little bigger item size than the other thumbnail. They look the same when I buy them but it's just the size of the item in the thumbnail. Is it normal to have those two duplicates?

Thank you

There are some conflicts in the current complete store which do not appear to cause major game problems. It also seems setup specific (how your game was setup before using the complete store) as it works fine for most but causes game instability for others. I am currently going through the files to locate/fix the conflicts but, as the store item files are so large, it will take awhile to go through them, fix and test them before a "fixed" version will be ready. The biggest problems seem to come if your using the Origin 1.69 patch as it appears Origin decided to change how the game handles mod files (one of the biggest reasons most of the top Sims3 modders stopped updating their mods).

As for the item dupes, some of these may be caused by the store files, however dupes are also caused by items that were installed with the game launcher (.sims3pack) prior to installing modded files (.package). Depending on how many dupes you have, it may be beneficial to uninstall any duplicates through the game launcher. If you only have a few dupes, say less than 20, you shouldn't notice any difference in game play just leaving them there.

Welcome to the Forum @kkaizer,

The files are safe to use. Smile
