This is a pack of The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories icons. It consists of 5 parts:
  • ICO – original icons in ICO format,
  • PNG16/PNG32/PNG48 – 16x16/32x32/48x48 icons converted to PNG,
  • TheSims2.com – icons in GIF format used in players' profiles on TheSims2.com.
The first 4 parts contain 25 files each: the TS2 basegame icon, 8 icons of expansion packs, 8 icons of stuff packs, the Store Edition icon, the Deluxe Edition icon, the Double Deluxe icon, the Body Shop icon, the HomeCrafter Plus icon, and 3 icons of The Sims Stories games.
The other part contains 17 files: the TS2 basegame icon, 8 icons of expansion packs, and 8 icons of stuff packs.

The names of ICO and GIF files remain unchanged. Note that Mansion and Garden Stuff is named EP9 despite that it's a stuff pack.

Update (12 Jan 2021): Added the Double Deluxe icon.

@Amorot Happy Holiday Stuff has no official icon as far as I know. I forgot that the Double Deluxe icon is different than the ordinary Deluxe icon. I've just added it. Thanks.

According to The Sims Wiki, it has an icon, but maybe it's a fan-made: Happy Holiday Stuff.

@Moon_Lady Yeah, I've seen it but couldn't find it in the game files. Happy Holiday Stuff is different than other stuff packs – it has no executable file. So it didn't need an icon, I guess.

@Nopke Ah, I see. Thanks for your explanation. Oh, and thank you for other icons! (I suppose I should have started with that )

@Amorot Thank you. I appreciate your involvement. However, there's nothing concrete in DeSims' reply. Moreover, there are really good reasons to think that the icon is unofficial.
  • The installers of both Holiday Party Pack and Happy Holiday Stuff Pack only contain the base game icon – unlike other installers
  • These packs are installed in the base game folder and have no executables – so they do not require icons (and I haven't found any, as I mentioned before)
  • In CaS, holiday stuff has no icon, unlike stuff from other packs
However, even though I haven't found the official icon during my investigation, I can't say it certainly doesn't exist. But, for now, we have no real evidence it does.

Do I just put these in the downloads folder? Or should they be installed somewhere else?

@Laurcleve I've just updated the install instructions – nothing to install. These are only image and icon files and do not affect the game in any way.
