Okays. My OCD is acting up, and after the recent death of my real-life mother (still less than two weeks ago on 11/6 – it was very sudden, and she was one of my very best friends…) .. I need a project. I have been putting off a million Sims projects, but after having a million issues with Store content not showing up, or not being able to find stuff in my horribly jumbled restored Sims 3 backups, I decided to start with this one. Basically, I’m resetting to factory settings, and re-downloading each store item separately, then setting up a collection for each “set” or “theme” – so they’re easier to find in-game. Then, and only then, will I re-install my save files from their backups, and get to work on my next project – town-sorting! … I’ll explain that one later, I think.
