I'm having odd issues after starting a completely new game. Decorative>Misc crashed, as past people have reported, but nothing I'm doing seems to be fixing the problem, save removing CEP entirely.

A list of what I tried:
- Unchecking "Garden Rocks"
- Manual Installation/Uninstallation
- Auto Installation/Uninstallation
- Unchecking everything to readd one at a time

I have the Sims 2 CD (as opposed to DVD, which I was using before), University, Nightlife and Seasons and I'm using Gunmod's Radiance Lights.

Numenor sadly EA has broken some Stuff with AL. The OFB International Windows have now wrong named Subsets they changed door to window and doorintlcapshort_glass to windowintl_glass, resulting in lost recolors. Its default red and non recolorable.
And the Nightlife neighborhoodBuildingRes1 got overridden by a different one and is lost now.

I too have had a repeated misc decorations crash but deleting the garden rocks CEP pack cured it as far as i can tell. I have university, seasons and ikea.

(also, thankyou for this amazing tool!)

Hi there...just wanted to say that I think I am having some problems with AL & the CEP. I think it is the same problem that Havelock mentioned. For me there are several windows that have lost their recolours...the names on the windows are the embrosure, the pythagoras, the breech, the artifact & the intake. These are the red windows that came with OFB (I think). The doors that match seem ok for me and I havn't noticed any other problems (yet)...just thought I would give you a heads up. I really love the CEP and I think it is possibly one of the best programs/hacks out there!

I seem to be having similar problems, with AL. While I have yet to experience a game crash (knockwood), the game installed in less than 30 seconds, or so it seemed compared to other EP installs. Which is highly unusual. It then took nearly 30minutes for the game to completely load to the chosen neighborhood, the first time I loaded the game. I ran it without custom content, as I always do to test the EP and to browse the catalogs. The second time I ran it, it loaded its normal time and speed, about 3-5 minutes, total. This time I ran it with custom content and the CEP, after having uninstalled the CEP prior to updating to AL. All, or at least most that I can see of my "recolors" still work, as they loaded the first time. Its the new objects or "cloned objects recolors" I am having a problem with. Some of my top cabinets for the kitchen have reverted to window shades, a kitchen table reverted to another style and a number of other objects are that typical 'bright blue' in color, all solid blue, not object detail. Also, for some reason, cboy's c*ck hack is now gone, and unusable.

UPDATE: I just went and ran the game again, this is the third time I ran it, the first time, I created a new family in the new AL neighborhood, and saved that game. The second time, I loaded a family I just created this morning prior to installing AL. Now, this third time, the issues I discussed in the paragraph above have all been resolved. I knew that Numenor was talented and capable of great feats of magic, but this is ridiculous! (Someone is giving Hermione a run for her money!!!!) Seriously, for some odd reason the issues just resolved themselves and all is right with my sim world. I thought I would update this so you all have the most accurate information. If I find any issues, I will post them, so far so good, but it is still early in my gameplay. I just don't get why the game runs differently (but better) each time I run it. But I'm not gonna complain about that, its getting better, not worse, at least its going in the right direction (McCain/Palin, take a lesson, eh?)

That's the way CEP has always worked with regard to new meshes and a newly installed ep/sp. Normally I will run the game once w/o CC installed and "enable" CC. If you exit the game from the neighborhood screen rather than from a sim's lot it sometimes help kick in the recognition of new meshes on that 2nd attempt in restarting your game... sometimes it does take 3 tries though.

Just an update...I also think some of the wardrobes are messed up (Dynasty Dresser 2 and another but I didn't write the name down...will take another look tommorow)
All the best,

It's not CEP but EAxis which b0rked dynasty dresser, as I mentioned in this MATY thread. Preferably it needs to be fixed by AL patch, but if not, Numenor will have yet another b0rk on his already full plate.

Tazziana, thats what I did as well. I always do that when installing a new EP, run it once without the CC, then the second time with. The third time seemed to be the charm for me. I am continuing to check for issues, but so far so good. Its just funny how the game ran better once I enabled the CC, than it did with it disabled. Oh well, that sort of disproves EA's theory of CC potentially messing up eh? I do have some hacks as well, but whenever I install CC or hacks, I always make sure I get them from a reputable Sims2 fansite, such as ModTheSims, or affiliates of such. BTW, while I'm at it I would like to thank all the people here involved in the creation of CEP and custom content, if it wasn't for these things I wouldn't enjoy the game near as much or play as much. I know you all put alot of time and effort into your creations, and folks like me who can't create crap owe you all a great debt.

Just FYI for what it's worth I also had my Sims begin crashing when I tried to open Outdoors - Decorations (I have Sims Deluxe + Seasons). I deleted the CEP Extra folder like others mentioned and it fixed my problems.

That was what I meant...I know it isn't the CEP but Maxis is breaking/renaming stuff which the CEP then can't read properly...just giving poor Numenor a heads up cause without feedback they may not know what has been broken and needs fixing...I am happily playing my game as is right now and have removed CEP for the time being.
Thankies,

One question.
Does this work with Apartment Life yet?
Just wondering.

Hi!
First of all I would like to thank Numenor for the job... awesome!
I am writing because in these days I've installed Teen style stuff, Kitchen & bath stuff and Apartment Life and the CEP doesn't seem to be working anymore, at least not properly, in fact many objects I had installed in the game have now become blue and flashy... So, is it because you have to post a new version of the CEP that suits with AL or am I doing something wrong?? Maybe it's a silly question, I'm sorry I don't know much about the CEP... I'm no good in creating I just download XDXD Sorry!
Thanks!

This CEP has not been updated to Apartment Life yet, give Numenor some time

To: QueenofSnow

This CEP would work for you *if* you didn't have Apartment Life installed as it has not been updated to that expansion pack yet.

Great ! Thanks Numenor !

I wonder for the next update (up to Apartment Life)... International windows that came in Open for Business are overwrite with same windows in Apartment Life, and original recolors disappears, leaves only the red one. If you resolve that bug, it will be an excellent CEP Extra !

Yes, I'm aware of the problem arisen with those OFB windows after installing AL. It's the same that happened with the base-game toilet stall after BV.
I will surely include an Extra to fix that

Just let me update the BaseGameStarter, which is more urgent, and then I'll start working on the CEP.

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

My latest activity: CEP 9.2.0! - AnyGameStarter 2.1.1 (UPD) - Scriptorium v.2.2f - Photo & Plaques hide with walls - Magazine Rack (UPD) - Animated Windows Hack (UPD) - Custom Instrument Hack (UPD) - Drivable Cars Without Nightlife (UPD) - Courtesy Lights (FIX) - Custom Fence-Arches - Painting-TV - Smarter Lights (UPD)


I *DON'T* accept requests, sorry.

Yep, Probably all your problems were already listed in previous posts by other CEP users. Always helpful to read back several pages to avoid duplication.
