For those Simmers that haven't heard, There's a lot of bad CC out there. For example, there is a corrupt file called "Girl Doll Dressed" or the "doll baby" file spreading it's way through the community. It was detected among items from the Sims 3 exchange (although, the're likely to be many other places that have this file).

One of the symptoms of this file include the game taking an usually long time to load. However, if you don't experience this particular symptom, you should still check your DCBackups folders for the TWO files listed below, and delete them.

(1) First... go to: My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/DCBackups

In there, SEARCH for these 2 files:

0IxI0I3I8a68fe04da61a6aa65f939d77fbc37.package
(the DOLL file that has been going around)

0Ix
I6IcId59455e4d12667fa7eb50bdda87cec.package
(a CAS "sniaikieidsskin" file)

The following is a list of all the known corrupt custom content found in the Sims 3 thus far:

(2) Next: Once you've cleaned out your DCBackups file, you may want to download the following tool that test all Sims3packs:
Delpy's tool


Short tutorial on Delphy tool.

... and use it to check EVERY Sims3Pack installer file you have in your computer. The 2 corrupt .package files mentioned above (or others) could be hiding in any installer file you have, and it's essential that we all begin checking and cleaning them just as quickly as we can.

Also:
I personally noticed that the living room set from Vitasims3 "Lynx Living Set" is corrupt, so you may want to also check everything downloaded from that website.

NEW LOCATION FOR CUSTOM CONTENT

Does the new update have you confused on where to put the mods folder?

EA has included support for Custom Content, with the release of Ambitions. This means that if you have previously been using the older system, you must change your framework after patching your game to 1.12 or installing the expansion pack Ambitions.
Why the big change? Well,before the change, mods Simmers weren't able to use their custom content without changing the location of the mods folder, with each expansion pack or stuff pack release. Now that the mods folder is in Documents no one should ever have to move that folder. Hopefully, this should cause no more problems with custom content, but with EA I doubt it!

So the new location is: Username\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages. Wait! you are going to need to know more.

PREGNANCY MOD

I came across a link to a mod. The Mod is called the "SuperComputer" and it will allow Pregnant Sims to go in CAS anytime, during the pregnancy. Although, I heard that the clothes have to be made for pregnancy, or you won't see the pregnancy bump. I have not installed this Mod in my game, therefore I can't speak on the safety of the Mod. I have been changing clothes the "old fashioned" way (which works fine for me). However, I wanted to mention the "SuperComputer" mod since it does seem to be far more convenient.

UPDATE :

The "SuperComputer" doesn't exist any more. It's now been replaced by the "StoryProgression" and "MasterController" mods.
