Getting Ambitions Framework Installed Properly

Overview

Have you viewed the Instructions in the Announcement and still can't get your mods to show up?
Perhaps you have overlooked some little detail, which is preventing it from working. Here we
hope to help you correct that and get your mods to show up in your game.


Checking Your Status

  • If you followed the Instructions from the Announcement you should have a folder named Mods
    under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

  • Next make sure you have 2 folders inside the Mods folder named Packages and DCCache.

  • Last you need to have the Resource.cfg file in the Mods folder as well
  • The Resource.cfg should look like this:

It Doesn't Work

  • The Resource.cfg file is named properly? Did you use "Save As" instead of "Save" when you edited the Resource.cfg?
    • Right click on the Resource.cfg file
    • At the bottom of the Context Menu choose Properties

    • Make sure you see the name as Resource.cfg. If it isn't, you will need to rename it.
