Sims 3 Exchange content wont install

I cant get a coustom world to install to game. It will install before i play game then when i open the game and get to where you choose the town you want to play i doesnt show up and when i check the launcher again it doesnt say it is installed. I tryed to install Paradise Beach Beta 0.5 by Curtis Paradis. It is fully downloaded onto my computer. I own a 21.5 imac with an intel core i3 processor and a 500gb hard drive and 4gb ram running os 10.8 Mountain Lion if that helps

It might not work if the person who created the world has expansion packs installed that you don't.

Re: Sims 3 Exchange content wont install

Do you have a lot of custom content installed (including Store Content) and do you have troubles with any of the others ?

Re: Sims 3 Exchange content wont install

Yeah but normally when that happens it replaces "missing content" with stuff from the base game. Like it will install in launcher before i launch the game but then i cant find the town and then when i check the launcher it doesnt shw up installed

Re: Sims 3 Exchange content wont install

It's the world. I've just tried it myself. 

 

It has a major problem that it has a dot in the name. The launcher does not like that at all. If you have contact to the creator, I would let him know, so he can re-export the world and not use a dot in the name.
