I'm trying to get rid of some of my older skins and I can't locate them in my package folder. I've used Dashboard and they don't show up there...of course Dashboard doesn't have a 'search' bar, so I can search individually for skins. I have skins dating back to Lady Frontbum that I just don't use any longer and another older skin that I can't locate and one by Praline Sims that I don't use, (darker tones don't look well with this skin) In my opinion of course.

Can someone give me some advice on how to delete these skins? I don't have them downloaded via launcher.

Thankies!

I'm not sure how I can help you on that CeCe. Maybe use the Explorer and go to your mods/packages folder and let the Explorer search for "Praline" (??) or "skin" and see what list comes up. You can delete directly from that (search-)list.
I hope this helps ;)

Have you combined your package files?

No, nothing combined except the mods and hacks for easy access.

well why not use the search that your computer can do ? like spell the name and search your computer. it will find it that way too. so type in lady , it will find every file spelled with the word lady and then you can sort by type. and by the way , in dasboard it usally spelled as retexture in the field type. and you can go to the orginal site download the file again. use that to see what it try to overwrite replace in your package folder . or you can use that to see how it is spelleed and use the computer own search type box . you find that in the ummmmmmmm

when you click start type in search types and file box.
cant thing what else one can do .

I remember I had a similar problem. One of the sims I downloaded and installed via Launcher had a default skin attached to it, so I had to uninstall that sim.

Great idea mamx!!! Why didn't I think of that? Doh' Lol!! I think I will go and redownload first and see if I can't just remove it that way...if that fails I will do the computer search. Fingers crossed! Big smile

That was what I was suggesting CeCe Smile ;)
Use the "Microsoft Explorer" => Go to your desktop, double click on the "Computer" icon. Look up your "mods/packages" folder in "My Documents" and search for "Praline" or skin and remove the file(s) you want.

Hopefully you're able to locate the files and zap 'em, Eva&Mamx gave good advice. Smile

For LadyFrontBum's skins, I'm pretty sure they're all labeled with "LFB" instead of her full screen name.

If you have any sims in your save still using any of the skins you delete, don't forget to switch them to another non-default! Smile

Once you sort it out, since you probably have less non-default skins than clothes/hairs/etc, maybe consider backing them up outside your packages folder and merging them? :D That way, you'll have a folder with all the skins you're currently using unmerged and easily searchable, and the merged file can easily be found in your packages folder. This might be a good place to start, especially since skins tend to be larger in file size than other CC! :D

or press (windows key) + e

I think Praline is quite organized with her file, so probably it will say "Pralinesims_ blah blah"
in my mod folders I put my skin in a subfolder called Skin under Genetic under CAS, so it is easy to locate
