I am lucky. I just sunk a big chunk of change into having a brand spanking new computer built for me just so I can play Sims 4. I followed your directions - I have 5.36 GB and 4,288 files, and 0 folders. So, my question - what are folders? Do I need them? And how do I do that?

Sorry, I forgot - it takes 1 minute for my game to load. Quite a difference over the performance of the old computer!

OMGosh Tee..do you mean that you have been just downloading things and not putting anything in folders for each creator/site

How do I explain this..a downloads folder is what you would download all your files in..and in that Downloads folder you would have other folders to put each creator/site their cc..



Time for a Spring Siggi lol

Samantha61 - yes, all in either MODS or TRAY. After an afternoon of reading on here, I now understand what is being said about "folders." I just can't seem to wrap my head around the necessity of it. I don't (yet) know how to create anything - I have never tried to look into that. I simply download from the sites and use them in my game when I am creating houses. It never crossed my mind to put "beds" in this folder, or stoves over here. And with my OCD - you would think that would jump right out at me, yet it never has. Why would I want to have one creator's things in a specific folder? I have favorite creators, but please explain the logic of this. I do download into a special folder and introduce them to my game just a few at a time - just to make sure they all work, and that they do not have a crippling effect on my game. But once they are ok, I simply move them into the MODS or TRAY and I am ready to play.

Believe me Joan..when I say folders are important..specially when you have over 22,000 files like I do..and a lot of members and others have way more than that..lol..

I keep them separated so I know who did what and where to find them if I ever have to redownload..or if someone is looking for something specific I can go look in the folders to find where I found it and who created it..

If you have everything in one folder..how do you know who did what and where you got it..

Like if I downloaded something from here I have CBS folder then the creator folder inside that folder than all the cc in that one..

There are others that just have one or two folders..I get a bit more detailed on where I found it and what it is..and the creator name..if I can..

I have all Mods in one folder..and my genetics in another..each with the name of the site and if possible the name of the creator..and most of the time I have the name of the objects...believe me I go looking in my downloads folder and if I don't have those then I tend to get lost to what and who is what lol..

I don't know what a TRAY is..that must be a Sims4 thing..I don't think Sims2 has that..



Time for a Spring Siggi lol

TRAY is where I have to place the downloaded houses in Sims 4. I began with Sims 1, and 3 and now 4. For some reason, I never had 2. Seems like the more we talk, the more questions I have. This time - what is Genetics? I mean, I know because I am a nurse, but what is it in the Sims world?

Joan, what Sam is referring to with genetics are CAS items (hair, clothing, skins, makeup accessories, etc... - all the stuff we put on our simmies).

If you take a look in the Help Center under The Edge, there is a thread on folders and subfolders.

Sammoyke - In the same place, there is a thread on How to Merge cc... your 20gb's will load much faster if your files are merged...

...deciding to merge, though, depends on if you are just building and playing for yourself. If you are making lots and sims for others, then you still need unmerged cc in order to easily export just the items you've used (and not all of your cc!).

btw, I'm the Tech Guru :D

...please feel free to ask questions and myself or others will absolutely jump in and assist! <3

shame Five days ago, my Mods folder had 13.2G of CC and it was taking around 8/9 minutes to load, then I made this big cleaning, deleted a bunch of stuff, or so I thought, but I was only able to remove 3G of CC, so now I have 10G and it takes 5/6 minutes to load, it's not much I suppose but I usually go in and out the game a lot when I'm building so waiting that much becomes quiet annoying by the 3rd time I have to go out and back again

I lost my computer last June, didn't get a new one until my son in law bought me one for Christmas, its an HP Omen, and I love it! I have never owned one this nice.
I have 10 GB, 7001 items and no, I never gave folders a 2nd thought, just threw everything in the Mods folder. So now, I am going to have to go thru and make folders. lol I need to purge a lot anyways.
I went cc crazy, lol

My current game load (I have 5) has 24.5gb in the Mods folder with 12 Folders and 1,095 files.

Most everything is merged in this particular game load, lol.




...backing up my downloads (it has been awhile and I can't remember which ones I did, so I'm doing them all over again - lol - this is the cc that I want to get into game at some point):

Well when I first joined Cherryblossoms I was using a smaller computer and had over 4g of CC .Stupid me got excited with the new computer I have now(Asus -Republic of Gamers with 1TB of space 7700HQ CPU 2.80GHz 2801 Mhz 16gb physical memory and 18.3 total virtual memory) and didn't switch over.Now I don't know much about computers and am nowhere tech savvy but it's a heckuva lot better than my old one.I'm just downloading into a folder right now because I'm waiting for that new Jungle pack to come out then I'll install them.Right now I have 41.2 g of CC over 8,400 files.I am hoping my game won't crash and/or slow down too much because of that size.Again I don't know about computers so we'll see!

Well...I just checked my Mods folder and discovered that I have 32.7 GB or 15,650 files in 17 folders. LOL no wonder it takes close to one and a half hours to load the whole thing. I typically create smaller Mods folders containing the necessary CC for my individual saves. Sims4TrayImporter(S4TI)helps immeasurably in this.

Renivaro - you might want to take a look in the Help Center in the Tech Edge area for the thread on how to merge cc in t4 (if that is the game you are referring to in your post)...

...as long as you have no specific, regular need to share anything, merging your cc will dramatically reduce your loading time <3
