.package cc files not showing up in-game

★★★ Novice

Hello,

I recently started using sims 3 custom content for my game, and putting .sims3pack files into the downloads folder works and they all show up in-game, however .package files into Mods folder have not shown up whatsoever. I would really appreciate any help getting the .package files to show up in-game.

Thank you Standard smile

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

@Nonkie7402  Are the .package files inside Mods/Packages, and is there a resource.cfg in the Mods folder?  Have you deleted the five cache files from your Sims 3 folder in Documents\Electronic Arts?  They should be deleted any time you add or remove content from your game.  For reference, they are:

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

If you've done all this and the .package files still aren't showing, please move the Mods folder out of the Sims 3 folder, recreate the setup or download a new Mods Framework from Mod the Sims, place just one .package file inside the Packages folder, delete the cache files again, and test in-game.  Let me know whether it works.

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.

@puzzlezaddict thank you very much for this response, I did this, so I removed my mods folder, downloaded the modthesims wiki mods folder that includes nointro and whatnot, deleted all the cache files and there was no intro which im assuming means the package file worked as intended. Thank you very much for your help.
