installing mods - did it work?

Post by dee » November 2nd, 2018, 6:55 pm

hi, i know there is a guide on how to install mods, and i followed all the steps, im just not sure if it worked or not. It is now in my computer electronic arts documents under sims3. But should it show up in the actual game launcher? Sorry to ask what must be a simple question, just want to get the story progression mod and know how to do for future. 
Thanks for any help.

No, they will not show up in the launcher, but that is normal. Only things installed through the launcher (Sims3Pack files) will show up in the launcher. These are typcially things like worlds and lots.

You should, however, get a notification after startup, right before you select a save to load, that the game has found script mods. It should list all the script mods you have installed. All NRaas mods are script mods, so any you have installed should be listed.

Unless you have a mod that disables this window, such as NoCD. In that case, the window will not show up but all your mods should still be loaded. A good way to tell is to load a save and click on City Hall. In my experience, almost all (if not all) NRaas mods have at least one option there under the "NRaas" menu at City Hall. If that shows up, the mods have sucesfully loaded and you are good to go.

I don't get the intro video on starting the game and with NoCD I also don't get that popup about Mods being found though I do notice then in my game once it's loaded.I know my Mods are loading if I get a notice about roommated being disabled and story progression being on.

Is the story progression on notification preceeded by by one that says something like "EA Story Progression Disabled"? If so, then the NRaas story progression mod is loading and other mods should be too.

A quick way to double check is to click on City Hall. If there is an option named "NRaas", then your mods are loading.
