Default About Stuff Packs ...
I havent ever bought any. I was kind of not into Sims when they all came out, now what 4 years later I am trying to catch up.

Is there anywhere to see what items come in each stuff pack?
And I have up to Apartment Life ... what disc would I play with or does it tell you at start up?

You could watch the trailers on youtube and they will show all the stuff one after the other, slowly accelerating though.

If you get the M&G stuff pack, you'll have to use the disc from that to play, but for any other stuff pack you can just keep using the AL disc.

I thought with Family Fun, you had to use the disk for that. And maybe Celebrations. Can't remember now. Anyway, if you have a later EP, you use that instead - latest EP you have, but including M&G which was the last game engine tweak.

Well, the OP has Apartment Life, which is the last EP and nothing came after it except for M&G, so exactly like a_az13_a said:

This. I own all EP:s and SP:s but don't have M&G installed, so I use the AL disc.

I was mostly thinking about Ikea SP, Kitchen and Bath, or M&G. I just wasnt sure about M&G since I have read here that it changs the game or something of that nature and you would have to use that disc but I can't remember if AL came before M&G or vice versa.

The only things M&Gs adds is some animations and other tweaks, it's more than an ordinary stuff pack but still less than a EP. I wouldn't worry about it, I have it and I adore the stuff from that ep - IKEA and Kitchen&Bath stuff are also two of my favourite SPs too! They add tonnes of items to the game which I use almost every time I decorate AL came before M&G as M&G is the DVD I use to play.

The EA site shows pictures of the items from each stuff pack. Some of the pages are missing a lot of items though. Also, they seem to have deleted the links to the pages. To find them, go to http://thesims2.ea.com/about/sp1_renders.php Then, change the number after sp to see each of the packs. 1, 2 and 4-9 work. 3 doesn’t work for some reason. I guess because it is the holiday pack, since there is no page for that.
Now what dammit?

I was thinking more of the people who read these threads for information - partial information is not useful.

I just got University Life, which came with IKEA and Teen Style. Teen Style was okay, but IKEA is great! The furniture is more modern and realistic (as well as cheap). I can use my Apartment Life disc to play the game, so... yeah.

When you put your disc into your computer to play your sims game it will tell you right away if you have the" right disc" or not to start your game. It will tell you which one you need to start up your game.
I like Glamous Life Stuff it came with some great modern furnitures ( beds, sterero , mirrors, lighting, armoire, book shelves,dining tables & chairs, dresser, computer desk, art pictures, sculptures water fountain and fun glamous clothes like fur coats etc.

One useful stuffpack is the one dealing with the new year and christmas. I forgot its title, but it enables you to throw new year's bash and summon Santa Claus. I'd pick this stuffpack any day if I could afford only one.

It's Happy Holiday

My favs among Stuff Packs are Glamour Life, Teen Style, Mansion & Garden - these three are awesome for their furniture and theme sets, especially if one doesn't want/have CC; IKEA - love this one and also the fact there are tons of downloadable RCs for its furniture, endless options of decorating the living place for Simmies (thanks to all creators for recolors ); Kitchen & Bath - really HQ sets in this one.

Thanks again for all the input! I just bought the Mansion and Garden, Ikea and Kitchen and Bath ones ... I think those three will give me plenty of choices now in which to decorate with!
