Snake tail not working (please please help me)

SirCumberbatchSirCumberbatch Posts: 377 Member
So after making a forum about finding a mysterious solution to the item, I downloaded what was needed then went in game. Sure enough, everything was the EXCEPT THE FRACKING SNAKE TAIL! I converted it to a package file, downloaded it that way, and before that tried it without converting it. Everything I didn't need from the set was there, but no tail. Here is a picture of the set:


You can download it here:模拟人生3-sims3/衣服-clothes/其他衣服4/

Of course, the tail probably won't appear. I'm not good when it comes to decoding things and finding solutions so if you could make it work and give dumbified instructions that'd be awesome.


Edit:Randomly corrected a word to plum.

    When you converted the file into .package files, you added them to the mods folder, correct? The only thing more I can suggest (in addition to the info given in your other thread) is to delete your cache files with the game and launcher closed, then go in and see if the tail is there.


    If only we could climb through the computer, help out and then return home, that would be great.

    I just thought I would mention that I have the same problem, I have got all the other items working OK, including the mermaid tail, but not the snake one. I'll have a look into it and see if I can get it working.

    @SirCumberbatch, @MarLin114, I think I've spotted something that may be significant. After clearing my cache (though that may be a red herring) and loading my game I found the tail. What I spotted was that the thumbnails show a Generations icon. So I closed the game and turned Generations off (using Sim Game Selector) and relaoded the game and - no tail!
    So, it looks like the SheJing tail requires Generations, not sure why, the mermaid tail doesn't.

    I was playing with Sim Game Selector yesterday and may have had Generations turned off when I installed the tail which wouldexplain not being able to find it before.

    Sirguylittle you are the best, that is exactly the reason why it did not show in-game. I was missing the generations pack. Thank you kind sir . I just made this account so I could thank you.
