How do I install files I downloaded?
Asked at 01:00 on Wednesday 23 March 2005 by The Sims Zone Report this Question


14 Answers
From The Sims Zone you'll usually be downloading Zip files. These can be opened with a tool like WinZip, from www.winzip.com. Other fansites might also be using RAR files, which can be opened by WinRar, www.rarsoft.com. Installation for other file types are described below.

Extract a Zip or Rar file to any temporary directory on your hard disk (e.g. your desktop). This will place a few files in there, along with possible readme files etc. Readme files can be deleted if you want, though it's recommended to read them before continuing installing the downloads. Some require you to follow special instructions!

Once extracted, you'll get one of the following files:

Sims2Skin or Sims2Pack files (which is also what you download directly from the official site) can be installed by just double-clicking them. This will execute the Sims 2 Content Installer which will guide you through installing the download. It might be that another program 'hijacked' the association, which will cause that program to be launched to install the files (e.g. the Sims2Pack Clean Installer). In that case, check the documentation for that program for help. Once the download has been installed, the original Sims2Pack or Sims2Skin file can be deleted.

Package files must be, unless otherwise stated in a readme file, to "My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads". This is NOT the path where the Sims 2 itself was installed to, but the current My Documents folder of the Windows user that's logged in. This might mean that if you install a download for one user, it might not be available to others. If the downloads folder doesn't exist, you can create it. Once the file is installed, the game will automatically find the downloads.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
Make sure the Sims 2 is not running while installing any downloads.

Some files might require an expansion pack. See the requirements, or a readme file, for information about this.

Object recolours might require the Colour Enabler Package (CEP) from the SimPE website. You can find it through our Utilities section.

Note that Sims 1 files will not work in the Sims 2 or vice versa. Programs made to install files to the Sims 1 will also not work with the Sims 2, and will not install the downloads.

An unsupported drag-and-drop installer is the Sim File Maid 2. This might be useful for just installing files by dragging them to its window, but support for the program is not given by the author or The Sims Zone. There might be other installers in the future.

Another added note is they may not show up if you do not have the proper mesh for that item so be sure to check the site when downloading and read and make sure you have the mesh in that zip or that you go to the proper site to get the needed mesh. All meshes go into the Downloads folder just like everything else.

Also making sure Custom content is turned on is important.

With NL there will be a box pop up you can X it out. You then go into Game Options, you can turn off the pop up box, turn on the Custom content option. Then exit the game Start you game again when you come back in game all stuff will be showing.


One thing I also do is Always place any Hacks or game mods in a Sub folder called HACKS so that when I add a new EP I can remove until I know they are compatible. many game issues are due to non compatible hacks and mods with new EPS better to remove and re add than to have it loose and trying to find it. Since some are also passed with lots, it is important to be careful as to what lots you add from where. I only add lots that I know have no hacks from sites I trust.

I also and I have NL so I can do this. Have all objects skins walls and floors etc in sub folders. that way if I add a house. Those files and the CEP file is the only loose files in the Downloads. I can use the Clean installer or hack scanner to scan them and make sure there are no mods or hacks if the house plays ok I move those loose files to a folder called House files and install the next lot to check. Always installing only one entering testing coming out etc etc It is a lot of work but I have been very lucky to never have a issue in my game with crashing freezing etc.
Since you can not have Skins hair or anything connected directly with the Sim(bodyshop files) in a Sub folder UNLESS you have NL before I got NL I kept them in the Saved Sims folder and had only objects hacks and walls and floors and house files in the Downloads folders in their own folders.

Hope this also helps

There is more than one type of penile implant and there is more than one way to remove genital warts. Doctors tend to specialize in one method over the other, so make sure your doctor lays out all the options and refers you to another doctor who can perform the procedure the way you prefer.

The headphones themselves are pretty great as well.beats by dre have crisp mids and lows. If you like the feeling of being in a movie theater then your gonna love the bass on Beats Headphones. beats by dre is a slight problem with the bass when your listening to music at an extreme volume but you wouldn't care anyways since you really dont need to listen to them that loud and trust me I listen to them at a high volume. beats by dre are not the best noise cancelling headphones but you should have no problem listening to music in a noisy environment.

reliable. Many people are giving excellent reviews about noise cancelling feature of the headphones on websites, such as Amazon. Besides, it also has a deep enveloping low end bass and and <h2>beats by dre price</h2> and solid mid and high range sound quality. Now to the JVC HA-NC250 with an over the ear design but slightly larger then the Beats By Dr Dre do a
good job of dimming the sounds. But with noise canceling off you can hear most common sounds... Sweat kills standard headphones on a regular basis. This is not the only only <h3>wholesale beats by dre</h3> only issue to consider when buying active headphones, though.

This got me thinking: how often should we be 'Coach Outlet' in life? Is it right to jack something in without giving it a full opportunity to play out?We love how Coach Factory Outlet casually paired her designer Coach Outlet with a pair of blue denim skinny Coach Handbags Online Outlet.One continuous project that has made the label more relevant on the streets is the recent work with Giuseppe Zanotti Online. Model, actress, reality star and burlesque dancer Coach Factory Outlet turns 35 years old today, and what better way to celebrate the voluptuous Coach Factory Outlet online's life than with thirty five of her most ridiculous hottest bikini looks.the Coach Outlet Store Online news for today features Coach Factory Outlet Gainsbourg in Coach Factory, and Karl Lagerfeld emojis.Pair Michael kors Outlet online with a neutral gown or mini to keep your look celine outlet or maximize your color- and print-mixing Michael Kors by matching them up with a more daring Michael kors Outlet Store.This week, our search turned up a new crop of Toms Shoes Company, heels we could hardly believe rang in at just $100, and the kind of cool-girl Prada Outlet that would easily become the centerpiece of your Fitflop Footwear' brunch conversation - and the celine bags envy of everyone at the table.This Fitflops offers you a vast variety of Fitflop USA to pick from and always assures you of Giuseppe Zanotti material. We have seen celebrities, popstars, bands, and even Fitflop donate cash or organize a fundraiser for Michael Kors Outlet. Please don't burst my bubble!) I had a specific Toms USA style in mind and-and usual-couldn't find anything in Michael Kors Outlet online that fit within my budget, so I fell back on my usual plan of just making my own!
