1  The Sims 3 / Sims 3 Buzz / How will The Sims 3 affect the online community? on: March 31, 2009, 03:05:52 pm
I've been really intrigued by this question lately: do you think that the Sims 2 community will thrive and stay active or will it gradually fade away like the Sims 1?

The Sims 2 has become such a huge facet of life for a lot of people, and I'm positive that many individuals will stay with Sims 2 and not cross over. I plan on getting the Sims 3 when it comes out, but it makes me not want to when I think about the split that it may cause in the community, perhaps even on this forum.  Cry

At the same time, I'm excited by the potential of this game. If the game turns out to be wonderful, do you think the community will eventually just transfer over to the new game?
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Nightlife Installation Problem on: June 04, 2008, 06:13:00 pm
So, a couple of weeks ago, my kitty spilled water on my keyboard (she's adorable but she just can't resist tipping over any cup of liquid that she sees) ... and it naturally fried my motherboard, so I had to get a new computer. Thankfully, we could still save my hard drive and put it in the new computer as an extra 80G of storage! But I still had to reinstall everything, including the base game and all of the expansion packs.

I didn't have many problems installing anything except for nightlife. It keeps getting to around 19% and then saying "A problem occurred when trying to transfer the file 'TSData\Res\SoundSfxKD2.package' from the media." And then it gives me the option of retrying or quitting the installation.

The disk IS slightly scratched (which I'm guessing is the most likely problem ... I am just desperately hoping it's some other easy fix so I don't have to buy it again). The only other problem I had with installation was with Pets and that did the same thing as this, except that disk is in pristine condition. It did eventually work after about 15 tries, although I'm not sure what made it work on the 16th try ...

My new pc does run on Vista ... does anyone know of any other reason that it could be doing this? I would just resort to living without nightlife, but if I can reinstall it, I won't have to lose all of my people and neighborhoods! I would really appreciate any ideas anyone has. Thanks so much!!
