So Im having problems whit my creat-a-style tool. Whenever I try to use it the loading thingy comes up and start spinning and spinning until I have to shutdown the game.
I have no idea what to do about it and hoped someone here would have some suggests on what I can do to hopefully fix it?

yes that a very common problem
i had that problem
for me it was having patterns in package form in my package folder.
which is a no no for some kind of patterns.
it something to do with tsr or something. so now i always install any patterns.
perhaps this is what is wrong?

some do work. but many dont. and make sure you dont have any sims2 file in there . that a problem sometime but has nothing to do with patterns , and outdated mod can prevente the game from starting . ah. good old sims3

It could be "bad CC" in general. Maybe you need to check your CC. I always use "Sims Dashboard" to check my CC. You can find it here

Thank you both for the reply, I use dashboard and it sad I had one bad pattern in combined package file. So now I just have to find that pattern-file in the big file :zelfmoord:*new*
Do any of you know if it's possible too open the combined package file in s3pe and remove it? So i don't have to remake the whole file again.
I hope you understand what I mean, it's hard to explain in english ^^

I did't fix it apparently. I've started the game 5 times now and only once has the tool worked, I've removed all the patterns and conflicted files I could find and I have no idea what I should do now!

i had to remove my combined patterns, patterns from my mod packages folder to make it work again. would it show up in your dccache ,oh and maybe u need to delete the caches file in the sims3 example compostior cache, script cache , simcompositor cache, caspart cache , so the the game can generate make new one all over again

Does it do this for everything you try and change the pattern on? Or only in create-a-sim?

You should try running your game without custom content to see if it is something you have downloaded that is causing it or if it something in the game that is corrupted itself.

I moved the Mods folder and tried and it did't work as it should, so I guess that means the problem is in the downloads folder? ^^

Did you also make sure you told the launcher to run without custom content? Lol if it still doesnt work then its in the game for sure.

ddcache in is my documents>electronic arts>the sims 3>ddcache
And maybe somehow you have mods in your game the old way. Check and make sure you have a mods folder in program files>electronic arts>the sims 3 folder

I had this problem some time ago and it is a pattern. Your best bet is to go back into your more recent downloads and delete them or remove them and then check your game. If it still doesn't load, go further back and keep going until it works.

You should be able to then start going through this cc and find the nasty little culprit!

This should work for you. I did it and did not have to go back to far when I did it.

I had the exact same problem before and I found out it was package files patters. It's best to just install all patterns to your launcher. computer mean

I'm just scared to upload patterns...period. I do want some new ones in my game though, it gets boring just being able to recolor the same old patterns time after time after time. :'(
