Hi folks! I've been a simmer since, oh gosh, SimPark, and well, here I am still, playing Sims 3. I've been a custom content hoarder since Sims 1, but I stopped playing Sims 3 after having major issues with custom content and certain basic functions not working, such as all of the Aspirations or life goals disappear in CAS, or when I change active households, my household looks as though it will change, but will not give me the control panel nor zoom to the new active household. Because of these and other varying issues, I stopped playing for about 5 months.
(I know I could play without CC, but really, why bother. The amazing content creators make Sims 3 worth playing. EA made the game, but custom content creators make the game real. Or fantastical, or medieval. They make the game amazing.)
But really, not playing Sims 3 has been tough. It is my downtime, my creative outlet at times, and these issues have really put a damper on my playing.
I was searching online for the answers to my questions about my basic issues, when I stumbled upon this site. I signed up, knowing that I am not an active Sims 3 player at this point in time, so I may not be an active member here, but I would at least look around before you guys booted me off, and I have to say I'm impressed with the amount of information housed here.
When I was playing Sims 3 regularly, I wanted to try CAW, but every time I got started, I'd just get confused and stop. But just browsing through the CAW section, I'm blown away by all the resources here.
Hopefully, I can resolve the issues I'm having with my game and I can get back to playing. I use Delphy's Sims3 Dashboard to clear out all of the problem files, but are there any other tools out there that note if there is a conflict with a new patch or game? I was given Showtime and Master Suite Stuff as a birthday gift to update my game and so I'm trying to get back into playing.
Sorry, it's such a long intro, but I'm trying to both introduce myself and find out if my Sims3 game can be fixed to a playable condition.
