Why Won't my Custom Content Show Up?? Please Please Help!
I have spent yesterday and most of today trying to figure out what's wrong with my .package files and overall have not found an answer. I have a Mac computer and The World Adventure Expansion Pack. Here's everything I did:
I was on my sims game and had all of my custom hairs, clothing, and furniture working perfectly (.package and sims3packs). Since I was working on a video I decided I needed to get the Pose Player so that I could get my sims to stand in different poses. I downloaded the Pose Player and a couple of Poses. But I put them in ProgramFiles/ElectronicArts/TheSims3/Mods/Packages where all my other working package files were. I tested it out and the pose player appeared but was not working because there were "No Interactions Available." I shut down the game and went on ModTheSims to find out why it was doing that and found out that my game version (2.16) was higher than 1.22 and I needed to move my files to the Documents for them to work.
I'll admit I was a bit confused at that because it seemed as though my other custom content was working perfectly fine. But I put all my files (Dragged them since I don't have cut-paste) onto my desktop and then into Documents/ElectronicArts/TheSims3/Mods/Packages anyways. ( I really hope I did it right cause I sometimes read things wrong.) (When moving my .package files to the Documents Mods/Package folder I deleted the resource.cfg that was in the Program Files Mods/Packages as instructed. I did not know what 'Old Framework' files were, so that might've screwed things up a bit.) I then went on the game and NOTHING showed up. Not even the unworking (is that even a word?) Pose Player. The only things still there were my Sims3Packs. I got angry and quit the game then tried moving the files back into the program files mods folder to see if they would work again and I would just ditch working on the Pose Player since it wasn't that important to me. Once everything was back into place I tried starting up my game again and my custom content STILL didn't show(Besides Sims3Packs)! I tried putting my custom content into a Mods/Packages in TheSims3 World Adventures in Program Files (I deleted the Mods folder in the Regular Program Files/ Sims 3 first) but it still didn't work. The last thing I tried before coming here was putting custom content in both the Program Files Mods/Packages (I recreated the folder) and the Documents Mod/Packages. (<- That's probably where I screwed things up a lot.)
I really hope you guys can help me out because it took a long time getting all that custom content to work and to lose it all in one day would be devastating. I feel like such a dope for not knowing what to do or not being able to understand the FAQ/Guide computer lingo. I would be soo grateful if someone could give me a straight answer for my situation in understandable English!
Oh yay! My regular custom content came back! Thank you! :DD There's just one problem though (i know, lame, right ._.), my Pose Player appeared again but there's still "No Interactions Available." Why is it still doing that? When I looked on the guide for fixing it, it told me to do the exact same thing I just did (put the .package files in a Documents Mods/Packages). Is there something I'm missing?
