Extracting CC from game/DCCache
« on: September 30, 2018, 05:06:55 AM »
Hi,

For about a year I had a lot of problems with Sims 3 and after doing some testing it all comes down to CC.
I do have quite a lot and I'd be willing to remove most of it (I actually want to as there is a good chunk I don't use anymore for various reasons).

However there is a few things that I really really want to keep and have in the game.

Unfortunately a couple years back the external HDD where I kept everything Sims related got damaged and I lost everything.

What I do have is the entire folder in Documents including of course the DCCash files and merged packages.

Sadly as some of my CC is so old a lot of it can't be found on the internet anymore. (Sites closed, old download links broken and creators moved on and not maintaining them anymore)

So my questions:

Is there a way to extract CC directly from the game (mainly objects and clothes)?

Or from DCCash files?

Is there a way to unmerge merged packages?

Ideally I would like to start clean with only what I do want instead of removing CC through the Launcher as it's not willing to remove everything I want to (dependencies) and also using CCMagic for all CC and not having them installed via Launcher.

Thank you for the help in advance

You might try asking at dedicated mod sites such as ModtheSims, TheSimsResource or maybe at the official forum as these sites have more of a dedicated modding community that can be more helpful with questions like these.

Thaks for the ideas. I do have the queston on both MTS and TSR with no answer so far unfortuntely. I wanted to try the official forum as well but you need at least 30 post or something like it to be able to open a topic and while it would have been good if I can ask I didn't want to random spam the forum just so I can do it.

From what I understand with posting on the OF, new members aren't allowed to post new topics. However, what is suggested to do is to post on a similar topic that is already open.

Hello!

There is a way to unmerge your package files though I hear it's a HUGE pain in the butt.

I can't help with the sims 3 pack files, but that should help with the package files.

Thank you. Unfortunately this seems to require the original files too :(

Can confirm that unmerging files blows ... :(
