Questions about DCBACKUP folder
Posted 20 February 2012 - 10:18 PM
In regards to the DCBACKUP folder - if these are all package files extracted from sim packs should these items be moved to the mod/packages folder and sorted out to better manage custom content better?
Directly quoted from Sims Wiki
"Contains all package files that get unpacked when you install a sims3pack. This folder is bound to have many files if you install and test out a lot of content, for the files in here will not get deleted when you uninstall or delete something in your Launcher. The names in here are just numbers so you won't know which is which. To find out, you can open them in s3pe and find the picture (Type: THUM or ICON).
If you export a Sim / Household / House from your game, the game only packs the stuff used that is actually in this folder. Meaning if you used a window in your house but deleted the corresponding Package file in this folder, the window will not get packed with the house. Some Downloads don't need to be used to get packed. They just do, but only if you have them in this folder.
Files in this folder have the extension .package."
I can't seem to find much information on this. Trying to get a better hold of my CC as I'm a CC holic.

If I changed my mind, and decided to start building houses to upload onto TSR, I would uninstall the CC that I was going to use, then install it again, and leave those files in the DCbackup folder until I had finished.
