View Full Version : Missing Espresso Cart
8th Apr 2012, 02:40 AM
I'm missing the espresso cart that came with the Uni expansion pack.
I had Uni, and Nightlife. Finally got a new computer this winter, and actually got to play the sims, after about a five year break. (old computer was horrid)
Played with those expansions a while, then added:
Open for Business
Fun With Pets (Family Fun Stuff, Pets, and Mansion & Garden
Now the espresso cart is gone. And the lots where I'd had it play fine, but the cart seems to have disapeared. :(
Did those expansions change anything? I haven't had them long, haven't started own business or anything yet.

Is anything else missing? Do you, for instance, have any thumbnails that say "No Pic" instead of showing the item, or wants with blank icons? Did you make a new folder for each installation?
Because I didn't start making new folders till prompted to, and the result was that later installations overwrote and confused previous ones, so that a successful installation of OFB screwed up a previously successful installation of University, Pets overwrote parts of OFB, etc.
None of the expansions take away any items that other expansions add.

i haven't noticed anything else missing, or blank icon wants or other wonky stuff, just the espresso cart.
I did not make a new folder for the new instillations, but i do have my uni/niightlife game backed up before i added the OFB and Fun with Pets.

They are all supposed to install to their own folders. That could be the problem.

they are just installed in : Libraies>Documents> EA Games> The Sims 2

And none of them have their own subfolder below that?

That is your user folder. The games are installed somewhere else, C://Program Files/EA GAMES/The Sims 2 <Ep> by default (Program Files(x86) on 64-bit). If you can't find where they are installed, you can always search for Sims2.exe or Sims2EP#.exe where # is the number of the EP (such as 1 for uni, 2 for nightlife, etc.).

:faceslap: sorry, feel really stupid at that....
Found the actual program files, and each expansion pack has seperate folders....
