Re: Dragon Valley eggs will not hatch

is the egg in the sim inventory when you get the message the egg is about to hatch ? if so you need to tell the sim to put the egg down then the egg hatches

Re: Dragon Valley eggs will not hatch

Mine also won't hatch... and i've tried doing these couple of things too. 1. Just talk to the egg where i found/placed it, and wait until it hatches. 2. Put it outside when i get the notification, but either way it still gets stuck at "Dragon Egg - 0 minutes" mark and never do hatch, and yes, i've also tried to restart the game and my laptop. P.S. I did these quite a lot i'm quite persistent... I want my dragons -.-

Re: Dragon Valley eggs will not hatch

see if clearing the cache files will help exit your game close the launcher if open

 

delete the cach files go to electronic arts/the sims 3/

 •CasPartCache.package •compositorCache.package

•scriptCache.package •simCompositorCache.package

•socialCache.package.package

it's safe to delete these files as a new ones will regenerate

Re: Dragon Valley eggs will not hatch

I just tried what you suggested, and still nothing happened. I even watched an egg i discovered at a tavern being talked to by one of the neighborhood sims, stalked the egg til' it said "Dragon Egg - 0 minute" hoping for a different result but it was also just stucked there. I'm wondering if it's the same problem with the monte vista cooking oven i found at the sims forums a while ago, and you need to replace the DCbackup file or something for the dragon for it to function as it was with the oven?

Re: Dragon Valley eggs will not hatch

that is  a possiabilty...also was this an old save game the one you play normally ? start a new game first to test your theory out before having to fiddle with the DCbackup file

Re: Dragon Valley eggs will not hatch

I tried it with an old sim i had then i remade one just to check... i don't actually have save game files since i'm more of a builder than a player, i just got excited that they were bringing back dragons, since it was the very first sims expansion i had. i'll just wait a few days if it is like the monte vista oven, so that someone with much more experience in fixing that/these kinds of problem to come up with the solution... Thanks for the help tho :smileyhappy:

Re: Dragon Valley eggs will not hatch

[ Edited ]

Did you fiddle around with the ccmerged.pacakge file in DCBackup ? Did you try reinstalling the world/dragons ?

 

Do you have any inofficial store fixes in your game ? Those will most certainly need updating. Remove them if you do to see if that is the issue 

 

EDIT: Just wanted to add that if you didn't buy the world, don't bother asking here. You need to get your own copy for it to work properly.



Good Luck and Happy Simming

Re: Dragon Valley eggs will not hatch

From what I've seen so far, this seems to go hand in hand with the world not showing up in your profile on the Sims 3 website. Can you please check if that's the same for you?
