PostSubject: Gulp...ready to cry, scream and ugh   26/8/2016, 19:06

So I launched sims 3 today just to see if I could play longer than 15 minutes and if my game would crash. Well. It loaded up to the launch and all I got was a blue screen to the right of the little menu buttons. Ugh. NOW WHAT! It wouldn't refresh and under "more info" it gave the Error 500 message. Okay jump on web and search. It would appear that hey guess what! I'm not the only one with this little issue! SHOCKER! So off to do a little more investigating. One simmer had a similar issue on the official forum and another one offered some advice.

SO. I decided well what the hey, I'm going to do this and see if it solves my issue. The advice given was to take out the old sims 3 folder out of the documents folder and restart the game forcing it to do new game folder. Okay, did that and launched my sims 3 game. Well hells bells I'll be jiggered if it didn't work!

So now comes my cry, scream moment.

When I was uninstalling crap the other day, idiot me hit the "select all" button in the downloads menu and then I HIT DELETE! UGH!!! To make matter worse, I FORGOT I DID THAT. *slams face on desk in utter despair*  Everything I had installed from before I pulled out the dang folders was gone, gone, gone. *cry* So now here I am, downloading more crap to put back in my game to replace the crap I just lost. *scream*

omg!!!

I feel your despair! I am kinda going thru similar experiences right about now....

I am getting my s3 ready to use after more than 2 years and ALL of my cc, sliders n hacks, mods, etc, etc, etc. were lost on a flash drive I no longer have. BUT, now I've been trying to download again the same cc (remembering my main creators names and/or sites) BUT, I did not realize how much things have changed within the simming community over the past few years I'm been away!!!! Wow!

Many of my items I can't find download links to anymore, or it's like a ghost town! ---just completely abandoned!

I did have similar problems with the blue screen years ago and Isla (from here) helped me, but I did have to end up having to re-install everything and using the 'no-disc' mod to play (which actually worked for a bit )

So sorry you're having problems!!! heart spin

You're right Amy, many of the cc and mod creators abandoned ship when s4 came out, many just quit the sims all together and some have gone over to the dark side. too funny

The couple of creators that I know of for sure that have abandoned the sims altogether are: Anubis and Prada Sims. But I'm sure there have been scores of others. As far as I know Judie from ABS (All About Style) is creating for s4 but haven't checked to see if she's done anything new for s3 and at the moment she isn't creating for s4 due to health issues. And Lorandia I think is still creating for s3 but I haven't been to that site in ages so not sure if those creators are still around.

One of the mod creators (other than Twallan) is gone: Blue book isn't creating or updating his stuff and hasn't for a couple years now. He quit shortly after s4 came out and walked away from the sims altogether. There is another one over on MTS that has abandoned ship also and someone else picked up and carried on with that mod, but can't think of what one it is atm.

But the bright side to my problem is it no longer takes forever in a day for the launcher to launch! Before it was taking like almost a full minute, now it's like BAM there. Lol

I downloaded a bunch of cc yesterday, some are pieces I didn't have before and some are of the ones I remembered having and really liked. Popped in game only to find out, DUH...idiot you forgot to get your male sims some nice duds to wear! doh So I immediately went on a hunt and found some nice duds for my male simmies to wear now! dance All that is left to do is install the ones that go through the launcher and then jump in game and see if I can find some other stuff that I may have forgot about. lol!

That is a good idea Shanz. I may need to start doing just that, in case well you know I happen to DELETE the dang downloads file again. too funny
