What is this?

This is the AppaloosaPlains.world file with the Resources imported from this download thread [In Testing]Resources for AppaloosaPlains.world's various Fixes.


What has been done?

A recap:
Quote:
As explained in the Game Help:World Routing Lagswiki,
  • the yellow spots (in the "Dotted" image) denote areas where the disjointed white routing lines, Sim non-routable and Camera non-routable painting have been repainted over. In the picture below these spots are shown with Green arrows. The Yellow arrows are routing that only appear disjointed, but are OK in Wireframe view.



Quote:
  • the red spots denote areas where the intersections have been corrected so that the Intersection and Road pieces now all connect. Mainly in front of Residential areas and the ones shown in the image below. Some that have the "ranch dirt road" do not have issues with vehicles doing U-turns, so I left them untouched.
  • There is a visual way to tell if the fixed resources have been imported, and the fixed world is "Live" in a new game or your Save games.
    • Look at the spots denoted by Red dots - at a road intersection. If you can see the intersections are yellow (instead of blank) from Map View, the fix is applied correctly.



Backup!
Heed that backup instructions, really! You've been warned!

How to install?

How to remove or restore the file before updating?
  • Go to the path above
  • Delete the *.world file. Or if you want to reuse it after patching, rename it with a ".fixed" extension, so the filename becomes "AppaloosaPlains.world.fixed"
  • Rename the "*.orig" copy by removing the .orig extension (or from whatever you have renamed it to).
  • Delete caches before starting game. Game Help:Sims 3 Delete Cache Fileswiki


Feedback
As always, feedback is welcomed.
Please report any other areas that you get stuck Sims at that I might have missed. If I may have been overzealous in the corrections or did some things wrongly.



Notes & Changelog:
As and when I get reports of any issues, or new spots, or patch changes (if any).
  • Compatible with Patch 1.26.89. Would most likely be compatible with any patches in the future as well.
  • The 2 .7z files contain a total of 338 (2+336) items.
  • Would conflict with any other download that make changes to the .world file that changed the above named resources.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

The world will no longer load in my game. The green bar goes all the way to the end (99%) and stays that way. Even worse, when I tried to put the original world back, I am not met with the same problem. So now I can no longer play this world without uninstalling and reinstalling it.

What are the other parts for? The instructions say to only extract part 1.
