Step by Step Directions on Installing Gunmod's Radiance Light System 2.4 For The Sims 2: Super Collection {32 Bit Version} Note that the 64 bit version changed the paths slightly and the changes are noted.

Note: I based my directions on 2.4 because I like the 2.4 version best, the install procedure will likely be a little different if you use dreadpirate's 2.5 version. I don't know if her version will work that well on Macs for one thing, so I advise getting 2.4 from on MTS. http://modthesims.info/d/290746/gunmod-s-radiance-light-system-2-4-4-29-09.html


1. Download the Radiance mod and unzip it, any convenient location will do.

2. Open the mod folder in a Finder window.

3. Open a new Finder window to your ~/Library/Containers/com.aspyr.sims2.appstore/Data/Library/Application Support/Aspyr/The Sims 2/Config folder. Note that ~ means the User's directory

4. If there isn't a userStartup.cheat file already in the Config folder, drag the file userStartup.cheat from the mod folder into ~/Library/Containers/com.aspyr.sims2.appstore/Data/Library/Application Support/Aspyr/The Sims 2/Config folder.

5. If a userStartup.cheat file is already in the Config folder, open the mod's version of the userStartup.cheat using TextEdit (right-click, open with). Copy everything in it, and close the file. Open the userStartup.cheat file in your Sims 2 Config folder using TextEdit. Paste what you copied at the very start of the file. Hit return. Save the file. Close TextEdit. Close the Sims 2/Config finder window.

There are other folders for other EP and SPs, but the Mac does not support them, so just ignore them. The Mod has an Optional folder, I did not address this folder, if you want to use them you can figure it out I am pretty sure.
