Hi, thank you so much for your response and effort Standard smile

I still haven't managed to make it work either.. What I can try to do is move the folders from my laptop (on which the cc does work) to a usb and see if those files works on my pc? I'm not too familiar with all of that just yet but it's worth a shot I guess

Re: .package cc files not showing up in-game

@nynkeglas  That's definitely worth trying.  In your position, I'd first compress (zip) the Mods folder and transfer it, and if that doesn't work, zip the entire Sims 3 folder in Documents\Electronic Arts and transfer it.  Compressing the folder helps prevent the files inside from being damaged during transfer, which is unusual but does occur.

Hi, none of those cache files were ever in my Sims 3 file to begin with and never have, yet my .package files still aren't showing up. I downloaded and installed them correctly. I extracted them into the mods/packages file and yet they still are not appearing in game. I repeated the entire process, searched for the cache files, the cache files still don't exist and the package files still aren't working.

@Jossph117  Please post a screenshot of your Packages folder, with the address bar (above the list of files and folders) showing as well.

@577ua15qbszd  Please post a  screenshot of the Packages folder that contains your mods.  Please also let me know what game version is showing in the lower-left corner of the launcher.

This is how its set up the game version  is 1.69.43.024017 I have all the expansions and packs and I know it works since some things show up in the game just not everything and I don't get why only some things are in the game

@577ua15qbszd  That looks fine, I mean your Packages folder doesn't need the installation guides or the .png file in your screenshot, but they're not doing any harm either.  Have you deleted the five cache files in your Sims 3 folder since the last time you added custom content?  If not, please do so now—they should be deleted any time you add or remove content from your user folder.

 

  • CASPartCache.package
  • compositorCache.package
  • scriptCache.package
  • simCompositorCache.package
  • socialCache.package

If that doesn't help, make a list of the cc files that aren't showing up and test them individually.  Move the entire Packages folder to the desktop, create a new one, and move over just one file that isn't working.  Delete the cache files (again), load a save, and see whether you can find the file.  If you can't, list it for me and I'll test it in-game myself: it's always possible that the item is broken and won't work for anyone.  It's also possible that the file requires a pack you don't own, so please list the ones you currently have installed.

 

When testing, you can start a new save instead of loading your existing ones if you prefer.
