I just recently reinstalled my game, i kept my package files (the mods and hair etc.) on my desktop and put themm back in the mods/package folder. When i loaded my game none of my hairs were there and my mods didnt work. I checked to see if the custom content was on, and it was. I even downloaded a new mod and save it in the mods/ packages folder as well and that didnt work either. I manually added the folders there, is that the issue? Will i have to redownload everything?
Extract the NoIntro.package to the Mods/Packages folder and test to see if the intro movie plays before the game starts loading. If you have World Adventures and/or High End Loft Stuff you may need to move the nointro.package to the mods/packages folder under WA or HELS for it to show up.
If you don't see the intro movie before the game starts loading, the framework is setup properly and you can add the rest of your .package files to the Mods/Packages folder
