My sims 3 ambitions not playable; doesn't show in launcher.

★★ Newbie

Sims 3 ambitions appears as downloaded on my origin account, and on logos of games on my launcher. However, it does not show up on the expansions and stuff section of my game launcher. The content no longer exists in game, I have changed laptop, since i last remember seeing the content. I have tried uninstalling and redownloading the ambitions from origin. I have also attempted the "repair" option on origin, to no avail.

There does not appear to be an update launcher section on the launcher these days either, so i assume i am up to date, (I do have windows 10 running).

 

any help would be appreciated.

Could you post a picture on what your launcher looks like ?

Hey, launcher and windows don't show ambitions. However, it shows in origin as downloaded and appears on my sims 3 page as downloaded.

I'm having the same issue. It shows in my files and on Origin, but I have not been able to play Ambitions whatsoever. It doesn't appear in the launcher and I've tried to uninstall and resinstall a few times, even tried repairing in case the file was corrupted.

I thought I had solved the problem when I discovered it wasn't saving to the Origin files (or anywhere I could find, for that matter) and that all the other EPs had saved to the EA files. I changed the save location to the EA files and uninstalled and installed Ambitions again, and this time it showed up, like I said, in files.. but not in the game launcher.

Any solutions here? Thank you in advance!
