I had taken a break from Sims 3 for several months. When I decided to play again I wanted to start fresh with Dragon Valley. I remember that at some point after loading the world it had a pop up saying something about the expansion lots i was missing and asking me if I wanted to add them now. I found this very helpful since trying to check the community lots one by one against the list of ones needed is tedious. Well I took another break because of real life stuff and loaded it up again today. I again started a new town, but noticed that I no longer got the pop up. I tried loading a few different neighborhoods for the first time and never saw it. I could find nothing in options that looked like it was related to it. I spent quite a while searching forums and Google about this with no luck, however I am not certain what search terms to use, so I may have just not been searching right. So my question is was this something they added with one patch and removed with another, am I just doing something wrong and not triggering it, or was this actually some mod I had forgotten I had?
I'd appreciate if anyone can tell me how to get this feature back, if possible.
I am simply a mass hallucination that a majority of the population chooses to believe in.
The only times I receive this message are when I load an old save that had been saved before I added another expansion pack. Whenever I start a fresh game I don't get this message and some EP lots are already pre-placed by the game. I think that this is normal game behaviour.
That's odd because the last expansion I have is supernatural which was released before dragon valley, and it was with starting a fresh game with a new neighborhood.
Either it was a bug, or there are other factors that can trigger it.
That's because Dragon Valley is a world, not an EP. You're prompted to place the new lots because each EP adds new lot assignments, and you supposedly require those lots in order to fully enjoy the EP's features. Worlds have lots, but not new lot assignments.
I always get that pop-up in my current game. When my sims travel to the future, they always get something asking if I want to add the lots to Oasis. And then when they come back, I get the same thing. It's kind of weird and annoying.
