    A dependence means that the content you are finding is included in or includes something else that was also installed and is required to be there unless or until the other object is removed. Sims3packs can be examined one by one using a tool called Custard to look inside and see what you are getting in each pack in case that's any help. Once items are installed and read by the Launcher as such, they are blended together in dbc files in the DCCache folder so it's not really possible to isolate individual items from that. One can, of course, get rid of the dbcs but that will remove all of your sims3pack installed CC.

    Hello @EmiliaP - I see you're a new member of the forum. Welcome. Your English is way better than my Italian, so you're good. :smiley:
    New members have limited use of the forum until they meet requirements. I do understand why you could not create a new post.

    Anyway as for your question. I don't use the share setting but I did find information.

    Short answer: No, apparently it doesn't work any more.

    More information-
    I went to the FAQ to find more information about it and this is what it says:
    • Can I autopost to Facebook and Twitter?
    • You can set your wall posts to automatically be posted on Facebook or Twitter as well. Just go to your My Account Page (from the top nav drop down) and then to Account and Privacy Settings. Under “Share Settings” you’ll see a list of the posts that can be shared to Facebook and Twitter automatically. Just click on Facebook or Twitter, and you’ll be prompted for your login information for those accounts to authorize posts. After that, your posts will be sent to your other accounts as well.

    So I went to that part of the account to edit my settings, but doesn't work.
    See image below -- everything under Facebook and Twitter all grayed out.


    On the Facebook line is java code, and when I click... it complains that some application has not been configured and my guess is that it appears to be an issue at EA's end. You should normally be able to use OAuth to enter your password and allow EA and Facebook to talk together until you disable it again (probably on Facebook which I think keeps track of apps you gave permission to communicate or not).

    On Twitter which is also java coded, I get an error page from EA (Liam's 404 which indicates a broken link). So my opinion is that the whole OAuth thing is disabled or left misconfigured by EA. (this would be disabled at a twitter account if it used to work and you want to disable it now)

    If anyone used to use it before, it probably no longer works. But I'm assuming that til we know better.

    Information about OAuth is here. It is what usually allows you to connect your different accounts together until you disable them again, but if the OAuth configuration from EA is broken or disabled, the only think I can think of is that you have to write a script using Microsoft Azure (or something). I don't know how that is done but third party groups have done different tricks with password authorization (this is sometimes risky) with other games and/or user forums.
