I love custom content and have been very fortunate to have never run into any problems with custom content screwing up my game. VERY lucky.
I haven’t had the time to play Sims 3 in a week or so since I was setting up the site and all but the last time I played it, it loaded right up. I did notice it would freeze if I Alt+Tabbed out of the game for some reason. In the past I could jump between Sims 3 and my desktop without any issues. I just resigned myself to the fact I wouldn’t be able to get out of the game once I started and I guess that’s not really such a bad thing.
Last night I planned on playing and before launching the…launcher…I got a couple of things and went to install them – note the “!” next to Uploads. When I would click on Uploads to install the content, I got a black box.
I went in and deleted my custom content and made sure everything was as it was supposed to be but nothing worked. Even attempting to bypass the launcher didn’t work.
SO, I have uninstalled all of my Sims 3 games. No more High-End Loft Stuff. No more World Adventures. No more Sims 3.
Well…no more until I restart and reinstall the bastards. And set up my framework again. And start moving custom content over to see what the game will run.
It’s going to be a long day.
