Thanks Anushka!
Very happy to hear it is appreciated. I worried a little people might think I should mind my own business, 'cause I'm not a moderator. I really only enjoy helping people, just like I appreciate it very much if people help me. I am no whiz and need help myself too, so I know what it feels like. I learn a lot every day and I like that very much :) and want to share that again with somebody else if I can.
Besides, I am really enjoying this world very much and feel others shouldn't miss out on it :D

Thanks again btw for the other day when you told me about almost all single men in UC.
But you never guess who my founder married... Giovanni Gepetto :)
He is no YA, but he is both artistic and a savvy sculpter. Both very good for a dynasty. I also like his face structure, hopefully they'll make some cute babies! Only I thought he had quite some money to bring into the family, but he had just 5.000 :( Ah well, his son loves to paint so that's a bonus! On top of that he recently got the wish to play the guitar, which will help to make money.
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

Yeah, that's what I thought.. I thought there was supposed to be a saved file for Union Cove on the game but there is not. The only place to find it is in the drop down menu. I have downloaded the save file and put it in the sims 3 save folder but when I load the game there isn't already a saved game for Union Cove

Great choice Odie(I saw Pietro grown up in a wonderful young man)! And thank you again, our forum and member base is this great because friendly people shared their knowledge and helped fellow simmers whenever they could :)

LittleSweet - have you extract the folder from zip file you downloaded to your saves?

Ah, haha, that was one. . . .

I'm not really sure I know how to "extract" it. I have windows 7 and when I right click on it there is no extract option.  ???

Right click on the zip file, and click "Extract All". If you are having trouble, try left clicking it first, and then right clicking. I have Windows 7 and no WinZIP, WinRAR, 7zip or anything like that, and I can do it.

Hi Littlesweet5,
Just 1 more step and you're there! :)

Seabody is right. By left clicking on it first you select it and then the options are different with right clicking.
I also have Windows 7, but don't have the option "Extract all". Maybe this is because I do have WinRAR. I have 3 options: Extract files, Extract Here or Extract to "name zipfile"\. I prefer the 3rd option, because then all files go into a new folder and not in between all your other files there.
Another option for me is to open the zip file and then choose "Extract to" in the WinRAR screen.

So it depends a little if you have something like WinRAR or not.
If you don't have anything like that, I found a good short tutorial how to extract the files here.

Good luck again!

Yes, I would love to have the Showtime update too soon!
No, it only matters if you have all Expansion Packs or not. By the way, for version 2 you don't need Showtime yet (of course ;D)
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

I don't have any of those options  :-\ http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/13/22518481.png/ Here's what my screen looks like.

Edit: When I click on the SEND TO option one of those options is to compressed zip file.. which means this is already unzipped.

The only ZIP File I have in my downloads doesn't have the standard Windows 7 extraction available but I do have 7-Zip which is downloadable and works - maybe try that. Or there is WinRar which was mentioned earlier.

I just downloaded 7zip and extracted the file to the Sims 3 saves.. then I loaded the game and there was still no saved file for Union Cove. The only way to get to Union Cove is through the drop down menu and if I play that it freezes. So I don't know what I'm doing wrong  I've done everything that I was supposed to. ughh  :'(

Hi Littlesweet5,

Keep breathing ;)
I think I know what the problem is! It is really smart that you included that last printscreen.
If I see it corrrectly you have put the save file in two sub folders (ucepsave\ucepsave). Don't do that, 'cause then the game won't see it indeed.
Just put it here: Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves\Union Cove Start.sims3
I really hope it works for you now! This should do it :)

(I always put the save files that I don't want to see in game in a sub folder. I do that if I have many saves which I want to keep but do not need to see, because that looks messy)
Problem? Don't panic! There is always a solution. You just have to find it  :D

Okay I think I fixed the problem.  http://imageshack.us/f/204/fixedo.png/

but, loaded the game and there was still no saved game for Union Cove.  ???


Edit: wait! I just took the Union Cove out of the ucepsave folder and put it directly into saves. Cross your fingers and pray this works!

Edit: IT WORKED!! Woohoo haha it took long enough  ::)

Quick question for anyone that knows. I've done several factory resets, and so I have multiple folders, one with all my store content, one with none and another with a few items from the store. I downloaded UC when it first came out, my question is if I change folders and download the new UC will I still have to delete the old one, or will new UC only be for the folder I download it to?

Hi Esther!
If you mean that you use several different folders for Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, you do the same I do. I have two of those; one I use for my Dynasty and the other is with mods and some cc. The mods I have downloaded are only in the second one, so I believe the new UC will only be for the folder you download it to. Yes, I am sure of it. Your old folder will still be using the old UC. No problem, just don't get confused ;)

As much as I hate to say it, you won't be able to start with Panther as your starting household since Declan Jade has a daughter who lives in the same household. You can pick a female and then have Panther move in with her though.  :)

I'd not thought of that, you might be able to. I don't know though so maybe ask Metro, or someone else might know for sure.

Then you've already failed the challenge.  You need to pick another household.
