PostSubject: Export problems since installing Seasons   11/12/2012, 01:25

I just created a real good looking male sim, and everytime I try to upload him it says export failed. I have been having this problem since installing seasons hence the reason you all have not seen many creations from me lately.

I don't know if this applies, but for a while a few months ago I couldn't upload anything to the Exchange--it would fail each time. Sometimes it helps to clear your cache and do a disk clean up and then reboot. I also cleared all my files using Dashboard. Sometimes it works. Once a sim is in the uploads and the export fails, you have to re-export because it won't take the same one. I haven't had any problems for a while now. Have you tried to export a different sim, or is it just this one?

Yes I have tried to export several different sims and I keep getting export failed and this is simply from cas to the export launcher not even from launcher to sims officials.

@Ina okay thanks. But it wont even export to the launcher for a sims3 pack let alone export to the officials. So all I have is a saved sim pkg. file that I can upload.

When you upload a saved sim pkg. file and they were saved with custom content on them does that transfer with them cuz I may need to strip him down first?

Maybe you can drop a line to EA about the problem. Sometimes they're actually helpful and just don't tell you to reinstall everything.

Okay, now I'm having this problem since Patch 1.50. I can't export any Sim to the Launcher from CAS--an "Export Failed" message pops up. Has anyone found a fix for this? I updated my Origin, but that hasn't helped.

I went looking for a solution and there are a few different things people are suggesting, not sure if any of them will work but it might be worth a shot

1 - before going in game empty the dcback up folder, delete your cache files
2 - go in game > cas change the sim name
3 - lower your graphic setting (using the options)

try exporting again

I will keep looking to see if there are any more tips

Thanks Ina, I will try your suggestions. Just as a test, I tried to see if I could upload a pet, and that worked, so this is apparently limited to Sims.

I found this on Crins blog

I can’t upload to the Exchange

This is an ongoing issue for many. There are different causes and solutions but most of the time, it’s unclear why it’s not working.

Identified causes:

You can’t upload a file with the same name twice, even if you delete one. Re-export under a different name and try again
Don’t use special characters in your name.
Everyone has a quota of about 1 GB. If you exceed that quote, you can’t upload anymore. Delete some of the existing files before uploading more.
If your file contains custom content or even Store content (some does attach), you might see an error uploading. Remove the Custom content and try again


I will keep looking for more info hun

I have noticed a lot of people are having problems by download ing the regular patch now EA have updated this to the super patch for more info go to Crins blog here http://sims3.crinrict.com/en/2013/02/patch-1-50.html

more love more love

There are two different issues here and (so far) I'm only having one. When you upload a sim, house, etc., you first have to get it from the game to the launcher. Then from there, you check off the file and upload it to the exchange. My issue is the first one. I can't even save the sim from the game to the launcher without getting the error message. As a test, I was able to save a pet from the game to the launcher and then upload to the exchange, but no sims.

I'd like to reinstall the patch, but my game says it's already got the current version, and I don't know where there's a direct download.

Thanks Ina, I'll download the super patch and see if that does anything. When I first installed Patch 1.50 my Origin wasn't up to date, so I updated it after, but it didn't change anything. From here on, I'm avoiding patches until absolutely necessary!

It's finally fixed and it was a simple fix too. Someone posted it on the officials. Just delete the DCCache folder. The entire folder, not just the contents. I actually cut and pasted mine to the desktop in case I needed to restore it. footsie dance wootwoot
