Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

Um... I tried to download this and put this in the downloads folder and I started the game and it didn't show it up there, so I put the download in the lot catalog folder, but still no custom content of this shows up, but I still restarted the game! And then finally I found another way for what folder to put this in is the lot catalog in the game, and still no custom content of this comes up! What's the problem? I cannot download custom content lots and make them work! The only thing that does work with custom content is downloading objects? What do I have to do to make it work? What's the problem?!

But can someone please help me, I mean tell me how to get to the menu to place community lots on the menu (pre built ones, like this)

You should have had a screenshot of Sims fighting around the PS3s, for some realistic lulz.
