  • How can I disable The Exchange in The Sims 3? animuson

    I've been playing The Sims 3 on my PS3 (I mention the specific system because the options might be different). Whenever I go into the Build & Buy menu and go into specific categories, the crap that it keeps re-downloading from The Exchange over and over is really slowing down my game and, frankly, it's kind of pissing me off.

    I've looked through the Options menu and didn't see anything in there to disable it; the only thing that really mentioned The Exchange was a big Redeem Codes button which didn't look useful at all. Is there any way to completely disable The Exchange within the game so I don't have to keep turning my Internet connection on and off, or is disabling the Internet the only way to keep it from downloading things constantly?

My IC2 version is industrialcraft-2_1.116.364-lf, it is the most updated..., it is not. The only way to 'fix' this I can find is to disable the sounds, and I cannot find how to do that.

When it was back up, PS3 wasn't able to continue the download, so it was still calculating(and adding) the time remaining.

  • This is a frequent glitch that happens to me. I will be scrolling by using WASD and then my camera will get stuck and keep scrolling. The only way I have found to fix this is spamming the WASD keys or toggling the pause menu repeatedly. This also happens when controlling vehicles. I will be using WASD in direct control, and the vehicle will continue to move in the same direction without my input. Toggling direct control off fixes this. I don't think this should be happening, and I'm not sure if it's my hardware or the game freaking out. I don't have this problem with any other game, so I

Is there a way to ensure only NPCs or non-user-made sims visit my business? Or is there another solution to this problem?
