Installing Worlds

You've attempted to download and install a EA or Custom World only to have the Launcher Fail?


Issues

  • Launcher hanging or freezing
  • Stating that items are installed when they actually aren't
  • Not working at all


Try These Steps First

Backup User Files

Back Up Your User Files before beginning this process

Redownload

The file may have been corrupted during the download process.

  1. Delete the file
  2. Redownload
  3. Attempt to Reinstall

if that didn't work....

Delete Caches

  1. You may just need to delete the Cache Files
  2. Now attempt to Install the world again

if that didnt work....

Remove ALL CC

If deleting caches didnt help, try removing ALL Custom Content

  1. Remove the Mods\Packages folder (package files)
  2. Remove DCCache and DCBackup folders (sims3packs)
  3. Remove anything from the Virtual Store (if applicable)

if that didn't work....

New User Files

One or more files in the User Section may become corrupted, try renaming the User Files to make the game generate a new set.

  1. Rename the Current Folder
  2. Double click the sims3pack to install with the launcher

if that didn't work....

Uninstall/Reinstall

At this point, there aren't alot of options left and this one could be really time consuming considering there are 8 EP's and 8 SP's with another EP due out in another week or so, but for some, this may be the only option to correct corruption in the installation files.

  1. Game Help:TS3 Uninstall
  2. Game Help:TS3 Patching

If that didn't work, or you opted out....
