  • Many thanks and a happy T-day to you as well @InfraGreen ! Will check it out. Luv and stay safe to all!
  • Hi and Happy Thanksgiving @igazor ! Thanks for the shout. When purchasing my TV I specifically avoided the "smart" tvs, so probably not. (Maybe through the Fire Stick?) I'm much better now anyway. Not there yet but better. Beyond the need to eat pot-pies while watching films and series over and over at least. Yay! Best of…
  • Wow! @Sandraelle You far exceeded any expectations. This is just amazing! Thanks so much, you're just the best!
  • Very Cool! And you're right, whichever thread I've been checking has apparently been the wrong one. Did I metion the "ditzy blond" before the "mis-placed hoosier" when introducing myself? Anyway, thanks for letting me know. Enjoy the holiday!
  • @igazor, brilliant AND a sense of humor. Wow. Too bad none like that around when I grew up. Ah, well... Thanks for reinforcing my intuitive warning @Bettyboop55 and you as well igazor. I remember my old xbox and how some days it would work perfectly, then not at all for weeks, then fine again. After so long caw worked fine…
  • Thanks @Bettyboop55. Yes, I've been on .69 for years and yes I've reinstalled the thing a few times most recently a few days back. I noticed a folder, not in the documents path, rather in the program files path that has a few separate folders for ep5, ep10 (just for instance) and thought about pulling those as I believe…
  • I've been wondering about this...some of my ep's are disk, some downloaded. It appears that I can download all of them as they are registered but it takes so long that I just used the disks I have. Any chance that this discepency in installation could be causing my problem? How does one isolate a specific ep? There are per…
  • Hi @tammyjo329 I moved the entire s3 folder from the ea file and let the launcher generate a new one. In this file there is no world cache, it doesn't even show installed worlds. The only worlds in caw are the sunset valley and riverview lite that it comes with. I did try pulling those to no avail, with and without "run as…
  • Many thanks @ciane :)
  • @Bettyboop55, thanks and feel free to chip-in any time! I've seen some of your work on the threads and its great! Unfortunately none of this is working to get caw running. Honestly I'm lousy anyway, but would like to keep trying. Oh well. The terrain problems I was referring to are not within caw but during actual…
  • @Hidehi, @ciane thanks so much for chiming in. It astonishes me how long we've been continuing to play and LEARN not to mention new player created content being generated. Also how friendly and generous forum members are with time and knowledge. Wow! Run as admin doesn't work but I'll sure try out the other suggestions.…
  • This seems weird to me but don't know if its a problem. Whenever glitches like clicking on something and not having proper possible interactions show up, I'd exit and clear my game caches. With most ep's, lots of mods and exchange cc, this type of thing happened a LOT. Finally just created a shortcut to the game folder and…
  • Community Lot Request Form Username: Vgrace573 Preferred builder* (If none, leave blank): Type of lot (laundromat, club, library, park, etc.): Big Park with rollercoaster and small casino. Which EPs and SPs do you have? No dragons or ITF. My only SP is High-end-loft. If you have Showtime, which edition do you have (basic,…
  • Is it possible to build a new lounge for your mixologist and have his/her apartment upstairs? It would be convenient but I'm not sure if it will work. Some of the "village" lots have different venues built in, would this be the same thing? Perhaps just use a public room marker?
  • THANKS!!!
  • Thank you, igazor. No, it isn't EIG just CAW itself. Noticed that in notifications its showing up as a program from an "unknown publisher". Oh well. May take your advice and head over to MTS. (Thought about reddit but for some reason they intimidate me.) Most likely I'll just continue with some of the truly amazing worlds…
  • Two questions if anybody is home? 1) Seasons is in the mail mostly because so many people use it in their creations. I understand that the game replaces objects if you don't have the ep's and sp's installed and am guessing that its not going to replace them again when I add Seasons? I'll need to trash those lots and worlds…
  • Thanks. Knew I couldn't but remembered once seeing a place where "newbies" could post questions and comments. Seems like the avatar was very flowery. Apologies again for jumping in.
  • So very sorry to butt in, have a couple questions for you awesome world builders and can't fid the spot to start a new thread. Can anyone point me there?
  • Thanks so much for reply. Can't wait to see it!
  • Has anyone tweaked Riverview to allow for IP? Have managed to create functional dive-spots, getting to them is something else. Plenty of space for a beach and ports near simhenge but no routing. There is also space for many extra lots along straight, flat roads, but no putting lots there. No disrespect to world creators…
  • I would LOVE a Riverview remake with a dive lot or 2, a beach and maybe destroy some of those annoying fences that prevent adding lots along otherwise straight flat roads. I can't CAW and though there are some amazing custom worlds out there I just want a (slightly) tweaked Riverview. Know of any?
  • My game wont load either. New computer and had trouble downloading games. Once that was cleared up launcher issues started. Launcher pops up but try to install my downloaded store stuff even one at a time it stalls with message "sims 3 has stopped working". Try to load game and it goes all the way through the animations…
  • TreyNutz, thank you, THANK YOU for the Dec. 2nd tip. Been wanting that roller coaster for a long time. I was prepared to park my rump on DD all day but went online at 5:30 and there it was! You're awesome! Also hope I didn't offend anyone if I seemed disrespectful of RH. Others opinions on a different site, not mine. Last…
  • I'm told that the login problems and mmao are account specific and tied to one or more servers within the server network. And its being fixed. Since October 12th. Truthfully there were a couple times I was able to get into my store account and make a purchase or download what was already there. but no mmao at all. I was on…
  • It isn't just bonuses. The mmao thing is login specific. Doesn't affect everyone. But since then I've completely lost my ability to use my store account. Even if it "accepts" a login to the point where my persona name shows at the top, the right side of that bar where it shows your points, friends, mail, etc. is blank. Not…
