As for which to use? No idea. Not sure if they're backwards compatible, but I think so? I think most would be able to extract the mesh and recolors and any other items.

Not sure if fridges have extra functions between BG and BV, but it's possible - if not, you could try making it BG compatible (but I can't guarantee anything, and it could depend whether the fridge was cloned from a BG item or not) - https://modthesims.info/wiki.php?ti...tible_Checklist.

If you have to remake it, making it compatible with your current game should be fine.


Yeah I can run it on Parallels on Windows Vista 7, I figured out how to run HoodChecker for the first time earlier this week (and I've played TS2 on Mac for ages ). Good thing I've finally learnt how to remove all that pesky corruption of non-existent Sims befriending themselves.

Those are the functions I'm looking for. So there's probably a tutorial on here that I can follow right? Based on this thread which version of SimPE should I download? Do I get the 0.73 version or..... ?

Also, is there any tool that exists that can tell me if something I downloaded is broken or that I don't have the right EP installed?

I think with 0.73 it picks up whichever games you have installed - at least for Windows - so if you were on a Windows computer I think the 0.73 version would be the one you'd want, but I don't have a clue how or if it would work with a Mac. Would most likely be issues with the game paths, and probably with the program itself, too. You'll probably want to look up some how-tos (if there are any). Only did a couple quick searches, but this is the only result on SimPE with Mac I got so far: https://modthesims.info/t/520348 - not sure if there's anything newer.

I guess it would work if you run it with a full Windows emulator, because I think it may need some of the Windows framework to run, but I think you'd have to install the game there, too (most likely the Windows version of the game?) - I doubt SimPE would be particularly friendly with the Mac version of the game. (If you need help with this, it's probably best to make a Mac help topic over in the Help section).

I've already figured out how to set up my game path with HoodChecker so that's not a concern. There's also this thread which offered a bunch of help. I established a saved file location of the Mac files which can be read while using Windows (which was kind of tricky to figure out) so I'd assume that would be the same while operating SimPE?

Do you think that I should make a guide on how I set it up on my up-to-date (Big Sur) Mac?

Have a new Uni hood (I didn't make it); Secret Society isn't working, I added one - if it DID actually have one, will the 2nd one cause a problem? Will no-dormie-regen cause them to not populate?

Sorry to spam here, I actually am having a similar issue as @grammapat above but I posted my questions with University over here. I have nodormieregen installed and I'm almost certain that extra dormies have still been generated in my uni hood? Would clearing my accessories.cache fix this? I also noticed that the Garden Club member and Matchmaker have never shown up on any of my new family's lots, except for the first Test family that I created and I'm pretty sure that I don't have any mods stopping their visit.

Edit: I think nodormieregen is actually working, nvm, I'm just paranoid.. still wondering about the visitors though

Also @grammapat the Pescado mod preventing SS members spawning is nossrespawn, do you have that installed?

The original Visitor Controller stops Garden Club and gypsy appearing by default, also Ms.C. is banned. There is new version by Midgethetree where they are allowed and you need ban them.

Are all the exercise objects barring the exercise bike and ballet bare non-autonomous for residential lots? I've placed a few treadmills in some lots, and some of the other green exercise machines but my sims never used them autonomously, but they did use the ballet barre and exercise bike.

Yes. This has of course been tweaked by somebody and gyms are much livelier after applying it. I'd tell you who fixed it if I remembered. You can ask in the WCIF forum; somebody's bound to know there.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

Yes, I DO have that, thought it not stop the initial creation of SS members (with a Secret Society lot installed), thought it just didn't create replacements if some died.

I just downloaded a bunch of default replacements for original game hairs and my big question is... why did EA think our sims needed diving helmets??? Anyway, they're gone now!

Maybe for the oceanography career?

https://dramallamadingdang.tumblr.com/. Her name on tumblr is dramallamadingdang, which is fun, but I think iCad is easier to remember. I see she's now mainly on pillowfort.

You recently tried to send me a PM, but I'm afraid my inbox is massively over-full, and it will take some time to clear it. Would you care to send me an email instead? My profile is configured to receive emails from MTS members. On the Posts and Groups tab of my profile there should be a button to "Send message via email" (next to the "Send private message" button). Thanks!

Done. It was mostly to inquire about your outfit choices for males, where to find them, etc.

Trying to find the mod that creates "spontaneous abortions"; the sim makes a puddle, looks like going into labor - then..they aren't pregnant. I obviously downloaded it, thought it only happened if needs got too low, but it happens even it everything looks good, and at any stage of pregnancy. I tried to remove it, I found a package named "PregRel-NL-package" but removing it didn't stop the abortions.

Trying to redo Greaves Greener Gardens, but what the heck is that fence going all the way around it?! Doesn't show in hood, so not hood deco, but I can't click it in lot, and haven't been able to delete it no matter what I've tried. What is it? How can I get rid of it?

From the picture on the Wiki, it looks like the fence arches-

Should be able to select that fence in build mode and Ctrl-drag delete.

Is there a mod or a way to increase the party guest limit without the maxNumOfVisitingSims cheat? I'd like to have the option of largish parties on community lots without making those lots packed in general. I guess I could enter the cheat just before playing a party, but given it has to be entered on the neighbourhood screen and my parties are usually spontaneous and on community lots it probably wouldn't work too well.


Truth will not fear scrutiny.

Have you tried making a userStartup cheat? You can find a tutorial on The Sims Wiki and you can place the cheat in that. I usually set the limit to 10, so my parties aren't too large. If you want, you could also get the Sim Blender and use that to teleport sims to the lot.

When a game is predictable, it's boring.
That goes for any medium that isn't life.
That's why The Sims 2 is my favourite sims game.
It has elements of unpredictability and everything feels more involved.
The Sims 4 is another story altogether...
