I donīt know what happened...when I open my TS3 game the city was gone...disappear...and is the second time that this happened to me. :cry:
This has happened to you?
Is it possible I recover my city?

I remember a thread somewhere, but I can't find it now. :(

I don't remember the details, but the game makes a backup of your saved games somewhere on your computer. (probably in My documents?) You might be able to recover it from there.

I hope that works...but how I do that?

I didn't find the thread I was looking for, but I did stumble into the directions.

Basically you should see two files in your save folder.The first file will be the named corrupted file and you should throw it away. The second file will be named like the first file, but with ".backup" added to its name.

Delete the ".backup" from the name, making sure you include the dot.

And that should enable your new savefile.

Load it and see how much was saved.

Also, that's why every time I save, I save it under a similar but diferent name. :)
