1  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Re: Streaked Recolors of This Hair? on: December 16, 2009, 12:21:21 am
Not the exact same hair, but not all that far off either -- check out the third hair on this page:

There are colors and streaked versions available.

Well, not strictly elvish, but you might poke around the various areas of Mirkwood. Here's a link to some medieval outfits there which might be construed as (vaguely) elven:

And you also may well find something here (free reg. req.):

Perhaps you mean this one?

While on the subject, just a few deco tea sets:
4  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Re: WCIF: Elegant Elven clothing for men on: December 15, 2009, 07:46:26 pm
Some items at the Parsimonious site's Elvish section may fit the bill:

While there, you might also find some things listed under some of the other themed categories which might suit your needs.

Ah that's better and simpler. Thanks! ^^ I don't have to sign up to another site to get it (Though I might still )

Just for future reference, generally speaking, you don't have to sign up for MATY to be able to download.

Or Squinge's hack, on this very site:

Note that these will stop the creation of those memories in newly-made Sims after installation of the hack.

Wiping memories from exsiting Sims (without some major tweaking using SimPE) is a grade-A fast way to end up corrupting an entire neighborhood and eventually make it unplayable.

Suggest asking this at the SimPE 'How To' forum, and/or perusing the SimPE tutorials available:
9  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Re: WCIF: Black veil and/or a modest black dress on: December 14, 2009, 08:42:16 am
Couple of places I recall which had such things are now gone or on hiatus.

However, here is one (sort of):

It does require a mesh, which I think is the floral one at the bottom of the page here:

And there is a complete outfit (dress, necklace/choker and veil) which accompanies the widow Sim on this page (free download, scroll down there):

Using Clean Installer, you could install just the appropriate items rather than the entire large file of the complete Sim.

First, it would help to know what your operating system is (XP? Vista? Win7? 32-bit? 64-bit?). And to make sure you are logged on with admin privileges.

Second, make sure to uninstall in reverse order of release order of EPs/SPs (for example, if your have just Base game, Pets and Apartment Life installed, uninstall AL first, then Pets, then and only then base game).

Third, if -- if -- I'm reading your last comment correctly, it sounds as if a partial uninstall was done. That could well lead to some problems.

Try rebooting your computer and see if you can uninstall normally before doing anything else. Also might try booting up in Safe Mode and trying the uninstall from there.

If still a problem, and if the link below is compatible with your operating system, then a more robust uninstaller may be of use, as it can find partially uninstalled items and do the complete uninstall thing on them.:

No guarantees, and would consider it a last resort before attempting a more complex folder/registry uninstall yourself. Make doubly sure, if using this more robust uninstaller, to not also inadvertantly delete your back-ups.
11  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Re: How do you pick out items that cause your game to crash? on: December 11, 2009, 12:25:09 am
Here's the wiki page on finding problem custom content:

Personally, although it is very time-consuming, I lean towards the tried-and-true 50% method, as mentioned above and also at the link.

Just remember, if at all possible, to not Save your game while testing with content temporarily removed -- just Quit without Saving.

Oragnizing your Downloads folder into sub-folders can help speed up the search somewhat, as can segregating the newest items you've put into Downloads (you can always move them to a diffferent appropriate sub-folder after determining that none of them are causing problems).

As far as checking for hack/mod conflicts, there is the HCDU (Hack Conflict Detection Utility), here (click Sims 2-- Programs):

Note that the HCDU (a) doesn't necessarily recognize 100% of hacks as hacks and (b) will show a list of potential conflicts, but cannot determine which if any of those potential conflicts are benign and which are malignant (no program can do that).

Some tips:

If you've recently installed a new EP or SP, some items which previously caused no problems may no longer be compatible, and need to be either updated or scrapped.

If the game freezes or crashes while loading, the problem may not necessarily be custom content. There are other tricks to do to (usually) solve that type of freesing/crashing.

Collection files (and any image files which accompany them) in the Downloads folder can cause crashing -- those files belong in the Collections folder, not the Downloads folder. Running Clean Installer and sorting the files by Type can quickly find any Collection files which may have ended up in Downloads. Clean Installer can be gotten here:

Highly recommended to always use Clean Installer for installing Sims2Pack files rather than the installer which comes with the game. Also recommended to update to the most recent Clean Installer in case you should happen to have an older version already installed.

Generally speaking, the only types of files which belong in the Downloads folder are .package files. Any .jpg, .png, .bmp, .gif, .zip, .rar, .doc, .html or .txt files don't belong there, are ignored by the game, and are just uselessly bloating the folder and needlessly taking up space. You can either move those other types of files to someplace else on your computer if you want to store them, or else delete them.

Didn't you ask about the same items a while back?

Search is your friend.
13  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Re: big family mod on: December 08, 2009, 05:47:56 am
There are many variations of this mod. Here's one which works with any configuartions, and only affects numbers in a family, rather than number of total Sims on a lot:

Totally different jacket, but mentioning it just in case:
15  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Re: WCIF: Athena (Xena or Hercules Series) and Agrias (Final Fantasy Tactics) on: December 07, 2009, 05:38:33 pm
Perhaps some of the items linked below will fill the bill.

Athena (free reg. req.):


Final Fantasy (various):
