Cant find a item

[ Edited ]

I just recently purchased and installed the Wedding Cake Replica for the sims 3; and I can’t find it anywhere. I’ve searched about 3 times in everything. It says it’s installed but once I go to the buy mode it’s no where to be found. Please help

Re: Cant find a item

@mxkera  I'm not sure how it's categorized either, although I would guess it's in decor/misc. or entertainment/parties.  You can narrow down the search though—Buy mode has an option to sort by the source of objects.  So you can select store stuff only, and your categories will be much easier to check.


It's also possible that the item didn't install properly.  If you think this is the case, pull your entire TS3 game folder out of Documents, open the launcher to spawn a clean folder, and install it again.  Then find it in Buy mode, note its category and price, trash the clean folder, and put your old one back in Documents\EA.  When you load the game again, you'll know exactly where to look.


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