1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / I took a million where did they go? on: December 24, 2007, 02:29:47 am
Heres the sitch. I'd go ingame and pretty much go snap happy with my families, taking maybe 50 pics. I would save the family, exit the game and go to the storytelling folder, and only 2 pics would be there of the most recent pic that I had taken ingame. I've tried deleting the group.cache, thinking that was the problem. but when I tried again, the same thing happens...Any help would be greatly appreciated.
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Help! I don't have a download folder! on: November 17, 2007, 11:04:42 pm
Kay, heres the sitch. I had to turn in my old laptop to Bestbuy because the lame thing decided to die on my drive to my parents house. So now Im stuck with my dads craptastic (well, its better then my moms but it looks like it came from the beginning of laptops) laptop, and he gave me the go ahead to reinstall all my Sim2 EPs on it. Well, much to my joy and chagrin, I had Body Shop (I didn't have it on my other laptop) but no download folder. I thought that if I downloaded some stuff that would fix the problem, but nope. I went in game and that didn't work either. Now I have a few dozen houses and default skin and eyes (that my laptop graphics distort to the max) and no way to take them out. Can anyone help me or did I already get myself into a bigger pile of crap by downloading without a download folder?

Edit: Hehehe...just kidding. I found it. It was located on the desktop and not in the dropdown menu...sorry bout that. one of the mods can delete this post.
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / A little Insimemator bug on: August 21, 2007, 12:23:31 am
The choice to accelerate pregnancy, decelerate pregnancy, skip to second and third trimester and give birth are gone from my insimenator menu. And when I click on My Pregnancy, the pop up sound is there but the pop up itself isnt. Oh, and when I click on the pregnant sim's status, theres nothing about her being pregnant, even if I did hear the pregnancy tune. Sad Anyone have any ideas about what might have happened? I'll go back and see if it has changed since I exited out.
4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Educational Career on: August 18, 2007, 12:23:02 pm
Maybe I'm just a natural dumb blonde in a brunettes body, but one of my teens has a lifetime want of "Reaching the Top of the Educational Career" and I can't figure out what it it college? or is there a job in Sims 2 that I didn't know about?
5  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Can't Find BodyShop on: August 02, 2007, 04:04:14 pm
Apparently my game is a wierd one, because I don't have Bodyshop (and I have all EPs) . Its not a option in my Sims 2 folder. Does somebody know where I can download it?
6  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Community / Diagon Alley on: August 02, 2007, 03:32:14 pm
Its not the best, but that's partially Maxis's fault. And before y'all start PMing me , asking where's the door to the front, Lemme just say that there is one, but its a invisible one. I downloaded pfish's invisible door from MTS2 and its located between the trashcan and the phone booth. To get thru to the Leaky Cauldron, all you have to do is click on a chair or the floor and tell your sim to sit in chair/walk here and watch as they walk right thru the wall. Magic!
The only place in Diagon Ally that I designed was the Leaky Cauldron because I figured that my idea of Diagon Ally isn't necessarily everybody's idea. So you can change it however you want, just don't upload it on a paysite or label it as your own work.

I used all EPs to make this and you should probably have them all too, but I think even with just one EP you'll get everything...oh and some of my exterior walls came from kittyispretty69 and one of the doors came from fizzbin.

7  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Residential / No. 4 Privet Drive on: August 02, 2007, 12:52:19 am
I'm currently obsessed with Harry Potter and thought I'd try a hand at making the Dursley's house. Because Maxis doesn't do L-shaped stairs (or modular), I had to make the house three stories instead of one, but it still looks normal. Comes with a car and  a place underneath the stairs that can fit at least one single bed. Anyways, its aprox. 75,000 simoleans unfurnished and 117,000 with furniture. Custom content includes door recolors by fizzbin, brick wall exterior by  kittyispretty69 and tall OpenMe windows by windkeeper, all came from MTS2. Before I forget, I used the blue print for the basis of the house, which can be found here
Do what you like to it, just don't upload it somewhere and claim it as your own or upload it to a paysite.


Note: And I made this with all EPs , so if you want everything on the lot, make sure you have all the EPs too.
Edit: I'm trying to make a cheaper version right now. Not so easy.
Update: Made it!
8  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Where is a compatibility chart? on: August 01, 2007, 12:32:58 pm
I know there was one somewhere here, or on Sims2Community, but I can't find it. I don't mean the one that EA posted, it was a more complex looking one with colored squares (vague I know,but thats all I can remember about it) that marked if two signs were attracted or repelled by eachother.
9  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Residential / Hallow Lane (Harry Potter Theme) on: July 31, 2007, 07:47:20 pm
I made these 50x40 lots for my Godric's Hollow Neighborhood and thought maybe some people on Insim would like them as well.

Both lots each have two houses with garages (complete with cars). Though the houses can house at least 2 sims, there is room for expansion.

I left the insides unfurnished so you can decorate to your heart's content.

100 Hallow Lane Price: 47,880 simoleans
101 Hallow Lane Price: 57,228 simoleans

Note to Self: Get better pictures when ingame again. (sorry folks)

Coming soon (maybe): Diagon Alley

Edit: Nevermind, I'm now aiming to do Number 4 Privet Drive (my version). Hope this is easier
10  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Community / Cathedral, Medieval Style on: July 21, 2007, 07:00:57 pm
I made this for those who love playing their Sims in Medieval times (like me). Anywho, I couldn't find a roof that fit the time period or a roof shape, but I thought it turned out alright.
Here are pics so you can see for yourself
Front view

Side View

Back View

Second floor, for the more well to do Sims

Ground floor, for the common Sims

A View of the Altar

And thanks to the following people for the custom content:
Lethe_s and the rest of the Magick Modders at MTS2 for the Cathedral Windows, the Rosette Window and the floor on the second floor.
Mia86 for the sims1 stone wall.
Price: I think this is around 150,000 simoleans, I could be off.
Coming Soon: A-Orphanage-That-I-Haven't-Named-Yet
11  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Community / SimFaire on: July 18, 2007, 11:59:55 pm
Thought I might add a carnivalesque lot here. It's a great place to take your family sims.

Includes a working rollercoaster, a (semi) haunted house, a working ferris wheel, bumpercars, a carousel a park for your sims to sit, relax and enjoy some faire food, and the nightlife-dance-machine-thing-that-I-can't-remember-the-name-of.

My ingame camera finaly decided to cooperate with me. :-P
Custom Content:
Ferris Wheel by Jasana_BugBreeder at MTS2
BumperCar, Roller Coaster, Spook Cart and Carousel by Echo at MTS2
Tall Typhoon Fence by Brasstex at MTS2
Large Rose Bush by Aussie TopEnders
Daisy Recolors by SimVeggie at MTS2
I think thats it...(I'll update the links when I find them)
And its 133,326 simoleans
12  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Community / Tiny Tots Daycare on: July 17, 2007, 06:52:11 pm
Are your Sims tired of running after the little ones all day? Do they need a well deserved break? Then come down to Tiny Tots Daycare, where we will take your little tykes off your hands for the day. Price: 22,485 simoleans completely furnished.
This lot was partially based on the preschool that I attended as a youngster...anywho, I made it with Maxis content and since I have every EP, you would need them all to download.
And I have no pics because my ingame camera hates me. I took bunches and they didn't show up in the picture bin...I'll try again.
i'll get some pic's for you in a bit Cheesy
EDIT - here you are :thumblef:
13  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Community / Little White Wedding Chapel (Las Vegas) on: July 17, 2007, 06:37:44 pm
Viva Las Vegas! For your sims who don't want a typical wedding or for your sims with a strong rebelious streak in them. Includes a chapel, changing rooms for the bride and groom, a large reception room and a small reception room and a drive thru window (which is not usable). Price: 105,371 simoleans completely furnished.
I don't have any pictures at the moment because I have to fix a error in my game where the lot will not stop spinning in build and buy mode and the only way I can take pictures is by clicking the overhead button.:sad3:
Anywho, I didn't use any Custom Content here (partially because my computer can't handle it) and I have all the EPs as well as Celebration Stuff and Family Fun Stuff, so I would think to download it, you would need them also. Oh, and I had to do this building on a Residential if you want to run it as a business, it would probably be a home business.
i'll get some pic's for you in a bit Cheesy
EDIT - here you are :thumblef:
14  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / I need assistance on: July 16, 2007, 07:53:18 pm
I want to upload a lot that I made ingame on Insim...but I don't know how. Can someone give me a hint or maybe a link to a How To site?
