spent the better partr of last night and this morning going through the entire store collection. and no, i’m not rich. :) i looked at every individual file name (even googled ones i couldn’t exactly tell what it was), deleted the ones i didn’t want, kept the ones i did want.
uninstalled everything that was on the installed tab. well, minus sims because simsnob made me a couple of great ones and they’re in use right now.
reinstalled all of the store stuff i wanted to keep. reinstalled all of the lots i found with excellent cc, any old cc and even downloaded more stuff yesterday and today. because really, “homemade” cc is so much better than ea’s cc.
now the moment of truth. does it run? will it crash? will it fuck up my game? i hope not. i’m hoping it runs a little better since i freed up a lot of stuff. luckily, if it all goes to shit, i have my families backed up and saved to the bin so i could easily start them over in a new world, no problem.
