      You are probably using the older version with the glitch. Try downloading the replacement family from my studio or see if there is another family in your bin titled O'Donnell v2

      Providing the link again to the fixed download... just copy and paste it into your browser. The family that is good will have v2.

      i can't do links lass
    • soocoolsim
      soocoolsim
      No sure what you mean when you say you can't do links. You should be able to copy the link by highlighting the link ext with your mouse, then briefly hold down the "Ctrl" and "C" keys on your keyboard at the same time. Then you open a new window in your browser and paste into the address bar at the top by briefly holding down the "Ctrl" and "V" buttons at the same time. Then hit the "Enter" key to take you to the web page.

      Or just look up my name under Friends in the Sims 3 Exchange to visit my studio where you will find the replacement file. Good luck

      Lou can you first delete the older versions already installed... do this from the launcher as well as all the copies in your library to be sure all the old files are removed.

      When all the old files are deleted, then re-download from the Exchange. The V2 should not be giving you any problems so getting rid of all the old files first is the only thing I can think of. Good luck!

      I don't know what else to try other than you download the original files I created in CAS. They will have NO SKILLS however since no mods will be used you should have no future problems. I will let you know once the new file is uploaded.
    • soocoolsim
      soocoolsim
      Lou, I've re-uploaded the base family for you... O'Donnell family V3 - NO skills

      Not sure why you couldn't delete the older files from your town or the library. Did you try demolishing the home to evict them?

      Anyway, please try the V3 and let me know how that works before I delete the file from my studio.

      I think the Sims 3 site may be acting up. Try again later or after rebooting your computer and see if any success

      I'll upload the sims individually for you this weekend and we can try to see if that method works for you.

      Have you tried cleaning up your cache files? These are temporary files saved by the same to make loading certain info faster. The game will make fresh copies if you delete them. They can be found in the Sims 3 documents folder. Here are the ones I delete occasionally to refresh my game:

      CASPartCache.package
      compositorCache.package
      scriptCache.package
      simCompositorCache.package

      I don't know what system you use, however to get to the Sims 3 documents folder it should be similar to the following. Hope that works... let me know.

      When you downloaded the sims I just uploaded for you... what did you do? Did you hit 'Save file" or 'Add to game"?
    • soocoolsim
      soocoolsim
      If you hit 'Save file' you need to select the file in your launcher and install it. Let me know if you have any success
    • LOULIGHTFOOT1976
      LOULIGHTFOOT1976
      add 2 game scs

      I've asked my team to check and they do see both files. Does a box pop up saying it was actually installed after that Lou? I've had problems with using that option in the past. Can you try using 'save file' instead then double-clicking the file to install. Keeping my fingers crossed.
    • LOULIGHTFOOT1976
      LOULIGHTFOOT1976
      did that save file then add 2 game the play was permnantly grayed out i had 2 restart my computer 2 get the play button back n no

      Sounds like a game or computer memory problem Lou.

      When you open your downloads, do you see any copies of the O'Donnel family file there?
      Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads

      You said a while ago that you had to reinstall the game completely. I can't remember why you did this.
      Did you have bad CC? If so, perhaps double-check your Packages folder and installed items to ensure you have no unwanted CC files still remaining? Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages

      Can you try downloading and installing another household from the Exchange and see if it works? Rox has created other households that would be safe as well. Search for a friend to get her studio... romagi1

      Lou, I was thinking perhaps nothing needs fixing... have you tried just waiting for the game to fully load? If the start button is greyed out it means your game is loading everything it needs. Maybe just wait it out until the start button appears.
