Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Anne, this easily one of your simplest, yet most attractive designs! The inside is, as always, unique and inspirational, and the outside has so much kerb appeal I just can't stop looking at it! Marvellous!

I love your houses, but for some reason some of the objects just flash blue and I have to delete them.

Sorry to hear that Kimmy. I'm sure you have custom content enabled in your game. I wish I knew how to fix that problem.

Here is a link that may help:

hey tricia, we got a report that the lot is not totally flat. Can you mention that in the post or update the file (lot adjuster)?

Thanks

Please would you review the links to the CC included as some are incomplete

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!

Karen Lorraine! Congratulations on your new position! I reviewed the links of cc by others. I'm thinking those are the ones you mean. Should the links be to the actual item instead of to the profile? I can do that for CTNutmegger, but not for millyana (whom you know is me) because the cc is in one of 258 lots and I don't know which one, and besides. Leefish told me not to link to a specific lot. Talk to you soon, will change the CTNutmegger links. Thanks for all you do!

One of the advantages of linking cc used in cc heavy lots is that downloaders can see the cc used; and so where possible do link directly to the item, especially if it isn't included in the upload. If a piece of cc is seen as existing in the wizard as it is uploaded in another lot where it also isn't actually visible without downloading the lot then you are right that I would say there would be no point to that.

I don't understand how we are supposed to download it then, or is it included in your pack?

I love this house and the curtains are just amazing. I've used the curtains on another house that I want to put for download. How do I link the curtains as it was created by you and there isn't a MTS download to it?
Can anyone help me?

Hi shay17, save the file in EA Games, Sims2, Downloads folder. Find the 3 little book icon with the file name and right click on it. Choose Extract here. In a few seconds a Sims2Pack icon with the file name will appear, probably at the bottom of your downloads list. Double left click on it and the game installer will open. Click install. Start your game and you should find the house in the lots bin. All the best!

I downloaded this house and installed it fine, but now my Sims 2 Ultimate Collection wont open. Would this be because my computer is running windows 10 and this download is not compatible? Thanks
