I was thumbing through the officials and found this thread....very informative if you didn't know already...which I didn't.

Mine had over 2000 items!! 60MB!! Deleted that shit right away! And I've never even logged into the online stuff!

The in-game advertising and featured items folder really bloats your game. Not saying this will work for everyone, but it did work for me. I found a tutorial on Crincrit's site which keeps EA from reloading pictures in the featured items folder. If anyone is interested, you can find it here, but I suggest reading through the whole thing before trying it.

Wow, thank you Kash and Kat!! I have always wondered what the purpose of that particular file was for, unknown now I know and have deleted. I had over 1,450 items in that folder and I just started my game brand new after doing a reinstall!!! I will def try the method of 'hopefully' stopping it entirely. humana

I hope it works for everyone. Of course Dee had to point out to me that it is Crinrict, not Crincrit....guess I can't spell...lol.

Word of warning...be sure to only delete Ea files as some (3rd party cc) thumbnails are listed here as well. I'm glad I didn't empty my trash bin!! Any who...can tell the difference already in game play...wonderful!! humana

Can you believe we have played this game for 3 years and JUST NOW find out that we have been overloading it with Ea trying to milk more money from us CRAP!! Disgraceful if you ask me! :zelfmoord:*new*

I stumbled across it after Showtime came out while searching for something else...can't remember what. I thought others knew about it or I would have shared it sooner. When I saw Kash's post, I thought, "Wow...something I can actually help with." Smile
