I started a new game and everything works just fine, its just that my old savegames will not load. Game just says "critical error when loading riverview" and goes back to the main menu. If I start a completely new game, everything works just fine.

I don't wanna start a new game.

It has to. Otherwise the package would say: Internet connection required. But you bought an offline Game.

For the My Documents version of the mods folder, the dll isn't needed (we think!), the resource.cfg file is placed inside the mods folder, and needs to be edited.

Each line like this:
Code:

PackedFile Mods/Packages/*/*/*.package


Would change like this:
Code:

PackedFile Packages/*/*/*.package


Hope this helps.

That may be my problem. I will try it. Glad I could let others know that you can use the Ambitions folder.

yes the patch is on the disk.

The internet connection is only needed, if you want to register your game to get the bonus objects for registering. See http://store.thesims3.com/setsProdu...=OFB-SIM3:21267

I cannot edit the resource.cfg file. I have a new folder named packages in my C:\Documents and Settings\name\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods. I have the resource.cfg in mods and all my cc with little helper monkey faces inside the packages folder. I do not have all my cc in the game. I am missing cc all over the place including in CAS. Can anyone tell me what I need to do?

to edit the resource.cfg, simply open it in Notepad++ if you have it, or just change the extension (.cfg) to (.txt) and then it should open in notepad, wordpad, word, or any other text editor. Once you make the necessary changes, save, then change the extension back.

Just thought i would let people know, I FINALLY got my mods to show up, however I'm not getting any notice that they're there (at least not that I've seen) but I'm using the new mods folder, with the packages and edited .cfg inside, and the mods in the package folder. Delphy's Brest sliders are working, as are Jonha's but/hip/waist sliders. and this is with update 4.0

EDIT: just loaded again after deleting the mods in the old folders, and loaded an old game and many of my mods disapeared.

SECOND EDIT: figured out which objects wernt' showing up, it was all of the items from my DCCache in my my doccuments folder, so placed them in the new DCCache folder in the mods file and they all showed back up.

If you're having trouble/need help with the patch

Please make a new thread of your own in the Help section. We can better help you there and sort out what are actual issues with the patch vs. what are issues due to outdated custom content/other problems with user files. This assists in bug tracking.

General discussion of the patch ("Yay I'm so glad about all these new features" or "Bah these new features suck") is fine here but if you have technical questions, issues, problems, or bugs, please post in Help.

Thanks!

Where can I find a resource.cfg? I'm confused. Sorry.

*Edit: PLUS, when I already have the Mods folder in Documents, can I already remove the Framework or something?

ugh, I get the 'your sims 3 base game is incompatible with your current sims 3 expansion pack. Please update your game via the game launcher.' error. Of course, I can't update through the game launcher, so I don't know. I think I'll just wait until tomorrow when the game is released here and see if installing Ambitions fixes the problem. gahhh.

EDIT: So I just decided to uninstall and reinstall world adventures and redownload the patch. All appears to be going well. I think, that either it was because I left the CC in the folder, or that I prematurely started the game before the patching had properly finished.

Everything sucks, until it doesn't.

If you have just plain Custom Content, like clothing, etc. It should work just fine.

Core Mods and script mods won't work until their authors update them.

I suspect that with this update you Must use the new Mods folder as described a few posts back. I haven't tested that yet, but it would be likely.

If you still have problems, download the launcher from the link in post #8 of this thread and run it. (Only works for Windows) It should help you get the mod framework correct.


I left out all serious mods I only have clothes, hair and furniture. When I tried to install your launcher it said I need to install .NET version 4.0.30319.

I have the changed rescourse.cfg in my new Mods folder,which is in My documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3. I created the two folders Packages and DCCache. I get no message of having any conflicting cutom content (which makes sense because the game obviously isn't reading any of my mods).

Any further help ideas? Thanks

marvel20: Has anybody tested with more than 4 subfolders? Becuase, as I recall the game only used to support 4 levels down.

Tumblr - Yes, I have a blog. :)

Delphy (big fan by the way) I have 16 sub-folders in my new packages file, and it all seems to be working but I haven't properly checked it out, because I'm still reinstalling my sims3pack stuff.

Marvel: I mean 16 folders deep, as in Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\Stuff\

Honestly though, anything more than 6 is a bit overkill
