Missing Items in Sims 2 Ultimate Collection? Empty Missing Items in Sims 2 Ultimate Collection?

Post by DrLecter on Sat 29 Dec 2018, 19:59

My boyfriend installed the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection for me on Windows 10. 
But while playing the game I noticed that a lot of my favourite items are missing (f.e. kitchen/bathroom items or garden and party items for weddings, also Teen Style items). Actually all the Stuff-Pack Items are missing. 
I already inserted the "Bonus Items", "Pre-Order Items" -and "Store Items" from the download folder. 
And in documents/Ea Games/The Sims Ultimate Collection/Collections are all the Accessoires packages (.package).
But I can't find any of these items in the game.
What am I doing wrong? Anyone else with the same problem?
Why God. Why God. Why God.

The Ultimate collection version you are apparently using only consists of:

The Sims 2 basic
Appartment Life
Best of Business
Bon Voyage
Free Time
Fun with Pets
Seasons
University
Nightlife
Mansion & Garden.
Celebration Stuff
Glamour stuff
Holiday Stuff


Don't ask me why it does not contain all stuff packs:

Missing:
Teen Stuff
Kitchen & Bath
Ikea Stuff

Welcome to the Forum,

Nothing is wrong with the torrent; if you really feel that items are missing something went wrong during installation or the download. For now, just try running the Sims2EP9.exe as Administrator, and see if you notice any differences. If not, we might have to edit file/folder permissions manually, and see how it goes from there.

//EDIT

This was written in the context of The Sims 3, but can be applied to (almost) any other folder as well:

Start with editing folder permissions for every "layer" until you get to the root folder of the game. So it will look like this.

- C:\Program Files\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSBin

Start with "TSBin", then => "SP9", then =>"Fun with Pets", then =>"The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection". After that try the game again.

Ah, the legacy of the old Admin: well-meaning, but oftentimes tired and out-of-touch volunteers (including you). It really makes a lot of sense that a game that is named "Ultimate Collection" and made available on Origin/ZLOrigin wouldn't have all DLCs and updates. Because this torrent is based on the Origin/ZLOrigin version of "The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection", in case you didn't know.

If you paid closer attention, you would have noticed the Ikea Stuff (SP8) and Teen Style Stuff (SP6) are incorporated within the "University"-folder. The Kitchen/Bath (SP7) is incorporated within "Best of Business". I'm almost sure though I've mentioned in the past that this particular game version has a different folder structure, compared to the normal editions of The Sims 2?

And what's that "D>" supposed to mean at the end of your commentary?

the D> is a typing error, no meaning at all.
My guess is that TS is not using the Ultimate Collection from G4TW

I'm pretty sure they meant "Ultimate Collection", and there is no other Sims 2 compilation with a similar name.
