So I recently installed CC Magic because I found 2 packs with some clothing that I really wanted, but I couldn't install them for the life of me, until I installed CC Magic, which solved the problem. However, since then, I can't load any saved families, or start a new world. The loading screen almost finishes and then the game just closes itself, no warning or anything.
I've tried removing my mods (which I doubt are the cause anyway, cause I had no issues so far), and even deleting the whole sims 3 folder in my documents, with no avail. I uninstalled CC Magic, still no luck. Anyone have any ideas, I really don't want to redownload all the packs and reinstall them Why God. Thank you for your time!

Hello,


Can you try your game with a clean folder?
To do this, simply go into Documents/Electronic Arts and rename the The Sims 3 folder. Can be any name you like, the point is that your game won't recognise that folder and will generate a new one when you start. Don't delete the folder, it has your savegames, downloads, mods etc, some of which you'll want to copy to the new folder.
If your game starts and loads as usual after that, I would say that the CC you added recently is corrupted in some way, which could also explain why you had trouble installing them.
I'm not sure that can be fixed, so you may not be able to use the CC. But there are a few things we can try like decrapifying the sims3packs/packages, or if they're sims3pack, it might be worth "unpacking" them with this.

Thanks for the reply! Unforunately I already tried the fresh folder method, I moved my current one to my desktop and let the game generate a new one. Although I did re-add one of my saved families, which had no troubles ever, but I will try a completely fresh folder and report back to you.
And the decrapfying method didn't work, as I already tried when I wanted to install some store content.

So I managed to get the game to work by having it recreate the documents folder, I guess it was some bad custom content after all, not really sure how though because I haven't added any recently, and the problem occured only after trying the CC Magic method... strange.
One more thing, how do I move my saved family to the new folder? Do I just copy the folder with the family's name in Saves or is there anything else I need to copy as well?
And thank you for your time!

Hello again,

You can move the entire "Saves" folder from the old one, to the new The Sims 3 folder.
Perhaps some of the files that came from CCmagic were corrupted. They're extracted to different folders in Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, so it's not just Downloads and/or Mods/Packages.

You mind if I ask one more thing? I seem to have stumbled upon another problem. I copied one of my family's save folder to the new documents folder but when I load up the game it says that there are some expansions missing and that it can't load the save. I haven't removed any of the expansion or stuff packs though. Does this mean it's just corrupted or could it be some missing store content?

The save file is probably corrupted. You can try to use the backup save file ( Family Name.sims3.backup ). Just rename or delete the current save file, then remove the .backup from the backup file
