Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
So yeah, I usually don't post stuff here because it's bothersome and messy, but this needed a wider audience since all the sheep are complaining about it and I don't want them all visiting me. You damn kids, stay off my lawn.

Download direct-linked below because I may update it frequently as additional issues are found. And you damn kids, stay off my lawn! I mean it! I'll use the hose on you, I mean it! Damn kids.

10. Love Potion no longer restocks as Nice Potion instead.

Will it really damage your computer? I just got this one annd Sims 2 already doesn't run well on it because its Windows 7. Will the download make the "Sims2/Windows 7" effects worse and like destroy my brand new computer??
