Anita - I LOVE that analogy! And, I'm soooo going to adopt it! I too am ridiculously impatient. I'm that person when I want something, I want it NOW! But, God is still trying to teach me to be more patient .... every .... single ..... day! LOL

I always wondered if there is a limit in the size of your folders... is it possible that the game (sims 2,3, 4) gonna explode (hmmm crash ;)) or will load forever and ever ....

Grinn, I will remember that ... hahaha but you don't want to know how much stuff I've got... When I start to download I don't stop anymore and I try to sort everything but it's hopeless... For Sims 3 I found a little russian program that sort for you (it puts everything in folders :D... only his english wasn't so good so the folder buy is called bye ;)): S3package sorter or sims3dashboard. In sims 2 you can you use sims2pack clean installer or delphy downloads organizer. Unfortunally I didn't find something similar for sims 4. Yes you can use Sims4studio but for sorting it isn't very practical.

For science's sake, Lorry...

...how much cc did you merge?

...how large is the total of your merged cc files?

(you can simply highlight the merged files and right click, then select properties to get that last answer) <3

LoL, the downloading seems to never stop. I told myself today, "That's it, no more!" Then Ms. Suzanne had to go link to a creator that had stuff I didn't have annnnd.... 50 downloads later I'm still downloading lol.

Lorry.... :rofl301: so did I ..... but I had more in mind...so the minute I scored might go to good use.....

Like Melisa has said....I keep on seeing the most gorgeous things you all use and I don't have that! But I MUST have it.....so I had to start to merge! giggle

I am very careful though which files I merge, since files from creators like Mio and even Leo(I discovered I cannot access his site anymore) has things in one package from different creators. I do not like to have the same object duplicated in my game due to different creators converting the same thing.....

But, with my files merged, I can afford more cc...and that sounds perfect to me!

I don't like to have duplicates either Anita, so one day I went into my game and placed all my doubles down, saw which one I thought was slightly better, then deleted all the others! I may still have the odd one, but my game loads fast so no matter giggle

Anita, Leo has a new site :D

Leo Sims

(the old site is the one you weren't able to access, correct?)

I made a Tech Guru post about it, which you may find here: How to Check for Duplicates (in all games) - Dupeguru

Suzanne, I suppose one can only check for doubles in unmerged files?

Thanks for the link to leo's new site!

Yes, Anita.

...however, if you include checking for duplicates as part of your process when organizing new cc, this shouldn't be an issue - provided, of course, you do all of that before merging! :D

...and, you are most welcome - I couldn't live without all the cc deco that Leo converts or makes!

Thanks Suzanne! I didn't have the new Leo site either! You rock girl!

I think I'm getting ready to do a major clean out and delete re-download stuff to get more organized!

I was thinking of the exact same thing!! Since I also decided to merge my files. I will have to get it more organized so that I can remember what files each merge will contain.
Since I do recolors it is important for me to know where I have the stuff..... but I only have to delete the stuff from Mio, Leo, Mxims and the other that do random conversions, I think I have a double or two and want to get rid of that, and then merge by creator and item(beds with beds, chairs with chairs and s on..... ) I hope that would then make it easier to find what I am looking for when I want to do a recolor!
This merging is actually also helping to have the mods folder much more organized and clean looking..... thank you Suzanne for introducing this and give us all the explanations and guidance!!

You are all welcome - you might also find this thread How to Merge CC in TS4 in Tech Edge helpful...

...there is also one in Game Help regarding organizing mods folders and subfolders (FYI)
