Link Flair Legend. First Reddit post, first ever mod. I've been playing Sims since the halcyon days of The Sims, but have always had a Mac.
Got a PC 7 mo ago, decided to do some mods because I hate how in the Sims 3 there is essentially no story progression on its own. I downloaded the base mod and a couple others, all from the Nraas StoryProgression page. They loaded in just fine, and once I got into my game, I fussed with a couple settings (Pregnancy chance=7, Married names SS/OS=coin flip) and settled in to see how awesome it is. Then my game crashed. Reload, it crashes again. As in, Windows force quits it.
What did I do wrong? Can I fix it? Am I followed by some form of mod-specific curse? Thank you so much!
'Fresh save' = start a new save in a different town. SP settings are set in each individual save, iirc. Alternatively, there is a backup of every save included in the 'saves' folder, you could also try renaming that folder by removing the.backup part of the name and reloading.
You might lose some progress but if it's an important save then it would be worth it, otherwise I'd just start a new game. If that doesn't fix the issue, then I would suggest taking the mod out (of your mods/packages folder, so uninstalling), rebooting, starting a fresh save, saving, and then reinstalling the mod. Also, what world are you playing in, and how long have you been in the save? I downloaded a borked custom world once that crashed at 9:30 am every time I loaded it up. I also wonder if you possibly made a tiny typo in one of your edits - like a ' before pressing enter or something that freaked it out? I'm not sure what would cause this, usually crashes I've experienced with mods happened while loading. Started a new save, lost a ton of progress, whatever the things we do for love.
It crashed again, but I got a solid 5 min of gameplay in. I turned off NPC tracking so I can't constantly see NPCs on the map.
The game seems to hate to have to alert me if NPCs are gaining skills, etc (as it crashed after alerting me to like, 5 skill increases while my poor Sim was working out). If I can figure out a way to turn that off without turning off story progression, maybe that'll help?
I love the mod it spices things up and really prevents the slow death of the town (where nothing happens, no one gets promoted, unemployed never get jobs, and no relationships formed and more). I hate getting spammed with updates for every single little thing, is there a way to turn that off? It spams me so much I can't see my sims stuff half the time.
Sims 3 Nraas Progression
Also is there a way to tone down the job search so not everyone gets hired right away? Finally is there a way to stop the mod from making sims adopt pets!? Ok, slightly off-topic, but can someone explain to me how to install this/any of the Nraas mods?
I am not stupid, promise, but I feel like I am missing a crucial step. I have downloaded the.zip files, unzipped, moved the.package file to the correct location (off the top of my head /My Documents/EA/Mods/Packages - I am at work on my Mac, not home on my PC). At first I thought it was because I have a couple of hard drives, but that doesn't make sense because that is still the location of my store content etc. I have patched the game, I have no mods and I still can't figure it out. Me personally I can't help, I become a moron when modding is involved I can only follow simple instructions.
That should be it. When you start the game at the menu where you pick your town does a list of your mods pop up, if so does Nraas show up.
If it does it should be there perhaps you just have to turn it on in game.? If it doesn't then I can't help that is beyond me lol. I will say if someone else doesn't help in a bit make your own post or pm one of the guys that helped me. Because my post is old so no one new may see your comment.
