The Arezzo Cabinet Hunt

Okay guys, I have one bad and one good news. The bad news is that from the Lilo and Stitch's house to the Mayumachi world my uploads were infected by the Arezzo cabinet file. The files that I've uploaded before are fine. For those who don't know, this file is glitched since it attaches itself to every file that you upload (even the Sims). I don't know if this file causes problems to the game, but it's still anoying to get a content that you don't want. 
I've never heard of that file before HaruWU warned me about it... and I didn't now about Custard either. I'm such a NOOB, I didn't KNOW, I'm SO SORRY !!! *runs away crying and slams the door shut*


Ahem. The good news is that I have now updated the files and they are now free of the cabinet.
For those who have already installed an infected file, here is a tutorial who teaches you how to remove it: and

In my case, I had already uninstalled the cabinet so it didn't show up in my game. However, I had forgotten to delete its package file in the DCBackup folder, so the cabinet still stuck to my uploads. Here is the package name:


Copy and paste the name in the seach bar of the DCBackup folder and then delete the file.

Custard now. This is a very useful program (thanks again HaruWU!) that shows you all the CC that comes with a sim3pack file. You can download it here:
Don't worry if the Custard shows the Mayumachi world as corrupted, apparently it does that for many worlds. 
One odd thing about this program is that it doesn't seem to like the sim3pack files with an "&" symbol in their names. When I removed the cabinet from a file such as the "Lilo & Stitch's house" and then saved it, it was impossible to reopen this file with Custard. I had to rename those files in the game and reexport them (the file is now called "Lilo and Stitch's house").

I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I'll be more careful now with my CC.
Also know that your comments are very precious to me. If HaruWu hadn't warned me, I would have continued to spread this infected CC without even knowing it. So if you ever notice a problem in my uploads, don't be shy and warn me:
- in the comments if it's a recent upload (I rarely check comments from the old posts)
- by sending me a note / feedback in my deviantart account.

Alright, thanks for your support, and don't forget:

Enjoy the Sims.
Enjoy it protected.
