Hello, I downloaded some CC from the website Teeter Toddlers and most of the things I downloaded disappear after I place them in game. They're not missing a mesh and when I used the better exception mod it said those items were invalid tuning. How can I fix this ? Is there a batch fix I can use ? Thanks in advance
What kind of items? There are batch fixes for different items broken/outdated with the patches. We need to know what items do you mean.
Please don't DM me here or elsewhere asking for assistance with Ninjaripper or CC. I don't work in Ninjaripper anymore. Please post your questions in Creator Help thread so everyone can chime in and help solving the problem
I downloaded two sets of deco diapers, a car seat, and a baby monitor set (two objects) from this specific page of the site. S4S didn't show anything off about them, so I put them in my testing game and was able to place them, go into live mode, and let the clock run. (I also tried clicking on each in live mode and none of them had any pie menu at all; they seem to be pure deco.) That's about as much testing as it's probably possible to do with items that have no interactions. The files on the website seem to be fine as-is.
I can't see any pack requirements when I look in S4S, but I'm unsure how reliable that is, and for that matter I have no idea what happens if you try to put CC that requires a pack you don't have in your game, so (unless you also have all the packs) I can't rule out pack incompatibility, though someone else might be able to if they know what happens and it's not that. I have occasionally had an object disappear after placement on me and then been able to place it later without really doing anything (except having closed and restarted the game and removed localthumbcache.package in the meantime). That's about all I've got for you; if the content I tested is NOT, in fact, the majority of the stuff you were having trouble with, then if you link the correct items then I or someone else might have time to take a look.

Cidira sorry for the late response I've had a lot going on but I just tested the CC out with nothing else in the mods folder and all of it placed with no problems at all. What does that mean and how can I fix it ?
Well, the first thing it means is that that CC works in your game, which is good news!
The second thing it means is that there's some kind of conflict between that stuff and something else in your game. The basic method used for finding problem CC is usually called 50/50, and the reason it's called that is that the simplest form involves testing half of your CC at a time, then half of one half, etc., like this:
1) Remove approximately half of your CC from your Mods folder. 2) Load the game with the remaining half and see if the problem still occurs. 2a) I always swap them out and test the other half too, just to be sure the problem isn't with more than one thing. 3) Once you know which half the problem is in, set the other half aside safely out of your game, and start over from 1 with the problem half, dividing it and testing each half, etc., until you narrow it down.
When you think you've found the cause of the problem, you can remove that item or items and put everything else back, and hopefully the problem will be gone. (You may also wish to investigate what the issue was, especially if it's content you want, and you could bring the details here.)
I like to make a couple of temp directories outside my Mods folder so I can easily keep track of what's already been tested and what's still ongoing. In this case you may also want to make a temporary folder in your Mods folder to hold the Teeter Toddlers stuff, since testing for a conflict (as opposed to an item that's broken all by itself) means it should remain in your game throughout that testing, and plopping it into a temp directory will help prevent you from accidentally taking it out while you're moving everything else in and out.
