Hi All,

This tool is for all of you who download lots of walls and floors, but don't want to click on every file individually.

How does it work?

First, you'll need the Visual Basic 6 runtimes if you don't already have them. They can be gotten from http://www.modthesims2.com/files/

Next, extract the program to your desktop and run it.

You need to browse to the directory where you put all your sims2pack files and select a sims2pack file

Next, click on the small button with 3 dots on it (...) to select your Sims 2 downloads folder. Select a file already in downloads. This will check the box.

If you want to delete the sims2pack files to save space, select the option as appropriate.

Enjoy!

You are my hero! For the first time installing 240 sims2packs was not the nightmare I expected. :elephant: Thank you so much!

Thank you Delphy. Snowy will luv you for this. I just highlight all my walls/floors; right click and choose open; click install - ok as many times as files. This works well for me. But poor Snowy (my Sim friend), her comp couldn't handle multiple files. I am so glad you made this. It will really help her clicking finger. Good Going.

Hello

I wonder if in the future MS2PI will handle installs of more than one lot at the time too (it extracts only a lotSegmentForUpload.sims file which is the same for each lot and) ?
Thank you for this great prog ;-)

Default Hello Delphy
Hello Delphy
I tried to use Delphy's Multi-Sims2pack Installer but It doesnt seem to work in my computer..
It can extract Sims2 pack files but wall coverings and floors didnt appear in the game.
I really dont know why...
(and those extracted files didnt show their types nor images in the S2PCI programs).
TY

Hi Thoo
Did you extract the files to the right folder (dowloads) ?
If you don't specify, MS2PI will install in the same folder as the sims2pack files you are installing are (errr that sentence doesn't seem to clear for me lol).

gaille: That file might have gotten updated by another program. Did you try reinstalling the vb6 runtimes?

I've seen your work on TSR (the sims resource), a pay site I subscribe to, I've also seen you at MikeInside, SnootySims, and lot's of other places I can't think of right now. But I really like your stuff. :D
