    Peoples download amounts arn't right either. I downloaded a sim on 2 different pc's from this simmer. It had 1 download to start with and when I downloaded it 2 times on different pc's it still said 1 download.

    That is so true, catloverplayer. I have a lot that has over 1100 downloads, but show in the exchange as around 700. Phew!

    Hope it gets fixed soon, but I doubt it.
    Nothing to see. I don't even care about the forums.

    Not only that, but the storyboard is also messed up! :x At first I thought it was just the holiday break (and that everybody was too busy to post things) but obviously not.

    Yeah! Like, in my studio the sim could have 200 dl's! But on the exchange, it's like 80 :?. It's so messed up! It got stretched to its limit :roll:.

    It is frustrating that I can't get anything from the exchange- I only download creations from the exchange once in a blue moon and it had been a few months(since the last time I downloaded anything off the exchange)and I didn't run into any issues until I recently tried to download off the exchange :(

    I cannot upload anything. Not pictures, movies or Sim! My launcher shows it uploaded but it isn't in my studio. Been that way for weeks now.

    I only got the sims 3 in early december and am very disappointed to see that EA yet again cant be bothered to act quick enough. I also have Spore which has a very similar system to the exchange and that has never had a problem, and i know what ur all thinking, smaller game right? wrong, when it came out it was a huge success.

    Ive been trying to download from the exchange all morning, yet, still, nothing has downloaded.

    EA need to sort themselves out, if anyone else is still having problems pls reply???

    I can't download anything either. It comes up on the launcher download screen with the arrow pointing down....and sits there...and sits there...and sits there...

    /sigh

    It was working fine before the last patch.

    Well it was nice while it lasted. :? Too bad the tech guys can't keep this site in good running condition. I cannot download anything from the exchange, I can only recommend so that's what I'll do for now. Hopefully they will fix this problem soon. :|

    ah.... so it isn’t just me then.

    i guess i was lucky, up until today i had no issue downloading from the exchange, i was thinking it was something in my settings that messed it up.

    glad to know it isn’t me, but really disappointed that it’s been going on so long.

    I cant even upload any lots I've been trying for a few days now and its still fails. It keeps saying system error, and I've done everything I could to try and figure it out. I work in an IT company!!! between the four of us you'd think we'd have this fixed but I really just wanted to upload my lot so it would be able for download. and I took the lot design as a challenge that someone posted on the forums. its all so very vexing :x

    Mine isn't fixed. It won't let me download or upload anything, and now my game won't load. I try to start it, and it just doesn't even open. It just sits there saying it's "loading" but it never opens. :evil:

    Its not working for me either. When I try and download lots nothing happens, they dont show up in my launcher or anything. Patterns are really hit and miss, they will all download and install but only a few will actually show up in my game. Also several items that I have uploaded have now gone missing! Not a happy bunny!

    So basically they have been having this issue for months, that does not bode well....
    I just downloaded some nice looking houses that other players designed, and I was able to download and install them but they do not show up in the game, even when I start a new game the lots with the houses that I downloaded on them do not appear.

    SOS .... Why don't they fix this site :?: Site's always "under maintenance" - what are they doing :?: Launcher works on & off; downloads if on a lucky day w/a wing & a prayer; comments pages play hide & seek. However, the store is always open & available. Curious huh :?: [/b]
