Join Date: Aug 2011
Okay, here we go.
MacBook Pro, 13-inch, early 2011
Running OS Lion 1.7.3
TS3 / World Adventures / Ambitions / Late Night / Generations
Game version: 8.0.152.015001
I opened my launcher today and started my game and noticed that it looked as if my entire profile had been wiped. None of my saves/downloads/mods appeared in game. But when I checked my Electronic Arts folder, all of my files were still there and everything was the same.
I then renamed my TS3 folder and allowed the game to rewrite the game files, and I then created a new save file. After that I quit the game and checked my Electronic Arts folder where I expected the new TS3 folder to be. However, it wasn't there.
So then I opened Finder and searched for "The Sims 3" and "Bridgeport" (the name of my save), hoping to find where the game was putting all my new files. Finder showed no results for either of my searches, and now I'm at a loss as to what to do.
The game still runs fine, but it's sending my files to a location I cannot find on my Mac. I'm thinking I accidentally deleted a file or pressed a button that I don't understand. The only thing I remember changing is adding two new packages into my Mods folder, but I don't really think that's the problem.

I would strongly advice to not use Launcher to update, and do it manually, instead.
