Ok but you have other CC clothes. Do you have those in as individual packages?

Ok so I would remove all CC clothes out, clear your caches, load your game.
If the Jacket still shows up that means it's attached to something else loaded in your game. If you merged hairs could be the off chance you accidently merged the jacket as well. If when you have removed all clothes and the jacket goes away then you know it's mixed in with your clothes CC. If you only have a few things the tedious method of checking the clothes packages looking for two casps might be it.

Well, I have narrowed it down and can say it seems to be attached to something in my maternity clothes CC.

I have found it. The issue seems to have been a package that made the EA Store Distant Horizon dress maternity enabled. According to the name, it came from 'gowiththeflowxx' or so. Admittedly, I have not played the game in years, so I barely recall getting this package.

I got rid of it, it removed the item out of CAS... and now it's back.

Right-clicked on it with testingcheats enabled, this is what popped up. Doesn't tell me much, unfortunately. At least, nothing that lets me identify to what it has attached itself again. Unless this is something that can attach itself to WORLDS?

I would run anything you have CC through the multi extractor and see if that instance number package shows up.

So process
Move every thing CC related into a folder on your desktop
1. Run Custard and see if it picks up that instance number https://modthesims.info/d/390235/cu...ck-cleaner.html
and/or
2. Run your CC worlds and any other CC through the multi extractor https://modthesims.info/d/364038/de...-sept-2009.html

Keep the instance number for it handy and look for it using either one of those processes should help you find the file.
I noticed it's enabled for Racing and Jumping (horse categories I do believe) this might be why it's attached itself to something. Usually the case with broken CC is it's categorized wrong. If you have downloaded anything from the exchange you should always run it through both Custard and the Extractor. You wouldn't believe the amount of CC attached to things they shouldn't be that comes from downloads from there.

Two different questions, though.
It is okay to combine Package CC, as long as it isn't a counter or a pattern, correct? What about tuning objects?

And a bit of a glitch (?) that I noticed. After aging up a Sim, regardless of if I use the Stylist or the Edit In CAS option to change their clothes, it sometimes happens that I change (or just leave it alone) their Outerwear. But then it results in two Outerwear clothes, with Outerwear 1 being the game-generated one and Outerwear 2 whatever I set. This usually includes whatever game-picked hair.
Is this a known glitch? I personally noticed it happening with Ambitions installed.

It's ok to merge CC - My personal merging style
I merge everything categorized by type - I merge counters with the understanding I will probably have to recolor after I set them down. Not a big deal because I recolor to match the style of kitchen.
Patterns I merge after I check the package to make sure they will not have the materializing issue. If they will have that issue I found some great tutorials on how to fix those. If not I would have over a hundred individual patterns loaded.
You can find a lot of tutorials on how to merge CC but I will tell you I test the individual CC in a testing folder I created in my mods to see if it's going to have issues first. I also keep folders on my external of the individual merged content with a copy of the merged package so if I have an issue or want to unmerge I don't have a ton of work to do. I run those all through the conflict checker before merging. I then run the conflict checker on my whole mods folder after placing the merged package in. This comes from years of not being thorough with my mods and having stupid things go wrong.

I have not had the outerwear issue but if you go in using the dresser you can delete the second preset.

#9510 Old 27th Apr 2022 at 6:48 PM
Small issue is, the second outerwear set is usually the one I want to use and not the first, game-generated one. Unfortunately, I cannot delete the 1st set to turn the 2nd set into the first. Gotta redo the first set into the second one, if I want it.

I don't know. I have never had this issue other than with the graduation robes which drive me nuts but I'm making my own mod for that issue. So I'm really not understanding the steps you are having to get this issue to occur.
Sim is aging up
After aging up are you taking them into CAS and changing outfits then? Using MC? or are you aging them up and taking them into CAS using the dresser?

We probably should move this into the Help Section forum. If you want to start a thread there.

IIRC If you put them in the 2nd outfit in stylist and exit wih them wearing it, it changes that one to Outfit 1 and you can them delete the ea one.

Right I believe you can use Master Controller to remove the extra one without even going into CAS. This thread Igazor has the steps for removing an outfit this way somewhere in the middle of the thread. https://modthesims.info/t/618902 and this one talks about how to get the sim into the correct outfit before deleting the unwanted one. https://www.nraas.net/community/mod...ssion/topic6723

Does anyone know what the Hoi Polloi Event Center in Starlight Shores is based on?



Most of the Starlight Shores rabbitholes have a clear real-life Los Angeles inspiration, but I can't seem to put my finger on this one.

Has anyone combined a resort with a nectary? I am imagining putting a nectary store and paraphernalia in a resort B&B. Kind of like vacationing in a winery.

It will but there are a few steps.

First run it in Windows 8 compatibility mode.

Then in properties select "Disable full screen optimizations"

Finally launch the game using the .EXE file in the game's install folder(You can create a shortcut to this in your games folder to make it easier)and not the game launcher, short cut, or anything to do with Origin or the EA and it should run perfectly fine.

My PC specs.
Windows 7 64 bit,AMD FX 4300 quad core processor, 8 gigs DDR3 ram, 1 gig Geforce 9500 graphics card, patch 1.67.2
Every time I reinstall the game I run it clean without any CC, not even the store bought stuff so it isn't CC or mods that cause me trouble.

Good for you, I never got it to work right without doing these steps, if it works for him that is good but if not then if he follows my steps he should be fine.

In 2020 I was forced to build a new PC using Windows 10 and I was never able to get the game to work with it until a couple of months ago, I only just got back into the Sims 3 using the steps I outlined.

Right click the icon and go to the compatibility tab and it should be listed as an option to run the game there.

as someone who has played Starlight Shores too many times, there's no clear reference to Hoi Polloi Event Center. I think Maxis did it only to make the town more urban since according to Brandon Woods bio, he despises the urbanisation of the town. You could replace it with The Ultimate Venue if you wish for more Hollywood style.

All the hoods are merely the same, so I made ones where all the Sims aren't straight.

As far as I know, I think the Hoi Polloi Event Center is roughly based on the Microsoft Center, though it doesn't have the clear references as the Binder Clips Center has with the Staples Center.

On the other hand, I can't seem to find any references to the Art Gallery, as it's quite different from any LA-area art museums. Ironically though, the library itself seems to be the building that references LACMA.

These were the concepts for them:
