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!

I have an error message that says I don't have the expansion to upload this current data (specific sims) and the faq guide says to download this, but all I've seen is mentioning of lots and such, have I been misdirected? I'm completely illiterate when it comes to this I just want a certain sim that was made by an awesome artist and I'm gonna cry.Gah ok whining done, please someone point me in the right direction, or if I am in the right place, explain what to do again because I didn't totally understand the directions =(

Dear Delphy,

I like this application very much, but I have one simple request: can you do some modification, that will rename the extracted files to the original names? Sorry for my poor english, here is an example:
1. I have a file: XY_strippedwall_pink.Sims2Pack
2. Inside, there is an floor_ed6f646.package

What I want:
After the extraction, the floor_ed6f646.package become XY_strippedwall_pink.package

That will be a big help for us!

Thank you for your effort! :salute:

I'm a hungarian guy, so please, do not shoot me for my poor and rusty english, and yes, you can correct me, you can teach me, I will be very grateful :).
