OK, here is a .package version of the younger Gen 4 Samples: http://illation.net/Sims3/Uploads/Samples3-4-5.package
This is Zahra and Fabian as Elders, Charles and Veronica as Adults, Ada as YA, and the triplets as children.
Also, I pulled the package out DragonWife’s simself household. There was a pattern in the Sims3Pack along with the household, and it’s possible that’s causing problems with installing it. I don’t know if anyone else had trouble. At any rate, it’s here: http://illation.net/Sims3/Uploads/DragonWife.package
Both of these are files that you drop directly into the Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Library folder rather than using the launcher.
Thanks muchly for this! When my game is all fixed up and running again I'll try it out 🙂
I hope you're back up and running soon. This stuff is such a pain.
It is. A pain we would struggle to live without …
Only two things. One, I can't find them in game, do they install to the library with the EA households or are they hiding somewhere else?
The other, which isn't so much a problem as something to be aware of, is that Delphy's Dashboard tells me that one of the women is wearing glasses, and that they conflict, oddly enough, with one of the items in Cmar's mpreg morphs, specifically the relaxed jeans. This isn't hugely a problem, as you have to do is download the file that isn't the combo file and remove the jeans, but it might be worth throwing a NB up for.
Other than that, thanks heaps!
Herm. Where did you drop the .package? The package I posted here needs to be dropped into Library rather than Mods. It should show up in the EA household library.
That's a really bizarre conflict. Both women are wearing glasses — Veronica has goggled in two versions, one on top of her head and one on her eyes that is only on her career outfit. Sky has three sets of glasses in various outfits — one from EA and two custom.
However, if you use the .package file, it shouldn't attempt to install any of that stuff and will only use it if you happen to already have it installed.
Alternately, if you're still having trouble, I have what SHOULD be cc-free Sims3Pack versions of the individual triplets on the Exchange now. Here's a link to that post: http://sims3sample.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-triplets-up-for-download.html
Yeah, I was completely baffled too.
I'm not sure which one of them it is, but as I said, all you have to do is delete the relaxed jeans, which I think is easier than hunting through for the specific pair of clashing glasses.
I just thought I'd share just in case something weird happens if you put the clashing glasses on a pregnant guy wearing the relaxed jeans. I haven't tried, so I don't know.
Yeah, I saw that one, but my thought is that I'll just grab the family and age everyone up appropriately in CAS.
And also, whoops. Turns out I didn't read it properly, so I did put them in the Mods folder. I've moved them and I expect they'll show up much better now…
