Is your version of bodyshop the one that came with the game or the one that was released before the original game? I realize that they should be the same and it should not matter but I had a very similar problem to yours back when I was still running the bodyshop I had had from before the game was released. Custom content just would not show up in game. Hair, clothes, makeup,...it was really a pain especially since I found most of the stuff that came with the game so darn boring. The whole issue worked itself out somewhere between University and nightlife. I had so many issues with my games and through both of the earlier expansions I pretty much had to start from scratch more than once. I have lost sooo many sims and entire neighborhoods that even if I tried saving and placing back into the game after a reinstall just never worked properly. Anyway at some point I finally uninstalled EVERYTHING. Bodyshop and the game and my expansions and then just reinstalled allowing the game to install bodyshop from the game disks. I kept nothing but my downloads folder and even that I went through carefully for any wierd items or hacks that I thought might in the smallest way mess with my game. Anyway doing that finally completely solved my problem. I have no idea what you will need to do to solve yours but be prepared for it to be as drastic and devastating as my solution ended up being. I have to admit by that time I had gotten pretty used to losing entire neighborhoods of beloved sims. In fact within the last several months is the first time since I bought the original game (as soon as it was released) that I have had a third generation born in my game.
Anyway my ramblings aside the bodyshop that you have may or may not be at fault. To be honest I don't think I ever heard of anyone else having the problem I had with the bodyshop that could be downloaded prior to the game release. However that could be because most people were just smarter than I and deleted the other bodyshop before beginning the game install.
I only hope that this might help you even a little bit.

The pre-release version and the release versions of BodyShop are very different. Best use the release version.

Try creating a project with Bodyshop and exporting it into the game, I believe this should create a Saved Sims folder.

Did you ever figure out what was wrong? my downloads used to all show up in the body shop, now none of them do including my sim I was trying to extract from the game. So it sounds like I am haivng the same problem you did, so I was wondering how you fixed it?

About the disappearing Sims, did you change the file name of the extracted clone? If you kept the name the same (N001_User00182, for example is Sprite Cola), the game cannot recognize the character file. Your Sim may be on the lot but will only have a red plumbbob. Always, ALWAYS, change that file name. Hell, throw an extension on the end (N001_User00182_Clone) and that little change makes it read-able in BS and Create-A-Sim and have no effet on the original Sim, Sprite Cola.

For those players who cannot get BS to even open up, check your 'The Sims 2' folder for MMDump files (something like that). Delete those as well as the 'groups.cache' and 'cigen' files. Bodyshop should load up next time, if very slowly. Make a sandwich or something if you have a lot of custom content. Wait for the program to do its thing. If it seems too long, check the folder again for odd files.

Ack I am also having a problem with my Sim showing up in BodyShop. I have put the file both in SavedSims and in Downloads--it just isn't showing up in BodyShop. What could be happening?

PS: There are 7 Sims showing up in my BodyShop. I only have 3 sims in my SavedSims folder and many more than 7 in my downloads. So where on Earth is it pulling from?

My Sims won't show up in SimPE!?! All I've is numbers and no names, what am I doing wrong???

#69 Old 2nd Oct 2006 at 12:14 AM
Something similar happened to me. Numbers and nothing, as if it has the wrong folder or something. It was frustrating as hell, nothing would show up after the first few times that it worked, until I reinstalled SimPE and then it worked fine again. Maybe you should just try reinstalling it. Might be a bug in Simpe.

Also, are you able to package a Sim not just from Bodyshop, but after you've giving it its personality and traits like that? So that you can give it to someone else with its personality, experiences and relationships intact?

I'm trying to figure out the same thing. I looked through the responses below but none of them seems to address this. I'm not interested in uploading my sim anywhere, I just want to change her in-game appearance while keeping all of her memories etc in tact.
