1  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / WCIF: Glasses on: September 08, 2009, 04:51:45 am
I've looked up and down, and I can't seem to find any normal glasses. I keep coming across "glamour" glasses  (you know how the celebs wear them?) and sunglasses, but no normal, everyday glasses.

I'm also having a hard time finding convincing freckles and beauty marks.

Any help appreciated, thanks Smiley
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Changing Outfits of Guests on: July 31, 2009, 02:21:32 pm
I really hope this is possible, but everything I have tried so far has failed.

I want to change the clothes of my guests; I have already changed the apperance and names of two of them [previous townie Trista Shaw and playable sim Andrew Riley], but their maxis clothes look hideous compared to the amazing make overs I just gave them.

I have the Insiminator [object version], that's how I changed their appearances and the "get for free" coat rack [not the clothing rack as that conflicts with other mods I have].

I have tried making them selectable and them purchasing their outfits, and then getting them to plan outfit, but the outfits I bought aren't there.

Hopefully there is a way to do this without SimPE as it'll be easier.

Thank you Smiley Oh, and I have all EPs and no SPs.
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Boys' Names For Girls? on: July 30, 2009, 06:40:43 am
I didn't want to post this in help because I have the Insiminator and can change the names of the townies, but a lot of my female characters have boys' names, and I have no clue why.

A little girl [townie] that recently dropped by was called Richard Hogan. RICHARD! And I had a female adult who was called Jeff!

Does this happen to anyone else? And why does it do it?! It's really annoying.
4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / No Activation Email on: July 15, 2009, 07:14:10 pm
I wasn't sure where to put this, so i'm very sorry if it's in the wrong area or shouldn't even be posted here at all.

I have signed up for the forum over at, well, actually, it was two/three weeks ago. It said everything was fine and I was registered, but I needed to click the link in the activation email.

I got no activation email, so I waited a few days. Then, figured it wasn't coming, asked for another. And then a few days later, the same.

So, I tried to contact them via their site and no reply, and it's been ages. I tried once again for them to resend my activation email and nothing.

I know the email is right because it's saved where the username should be.

I was wondering if anyone knew what I could do, or if anyone was in contact with them to ask how to solve the problem...?

Again, my apologies if this just doesn't fit here.
5  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / More RAM v. Better Graphic Card on: July 12, 2009, 08:21:12 pm
Alright, remember I was having,106179.msg1548100.html#msg1548100 < that [and more] problem? Well, several people recommended I update my drivers, and I did, but it's still funny, the graphics and such, and it keeps crashing on me and the screen keeps going blue while it waits to do something very frequently :\

Anyway, i've had two more suggestions, more RAM [as I have 2 x 3.20Ghz processors and 1GB of RAM] or a better graphics card.

I'm leaning more towards the RAM because of the blue screen, but I just wondered what you guys' thoughts were Smiley I'm also going to buy some compressed air to clean the inside of my computer & the fans.
6  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / WCIF: These Hairs :) on: July 11, 2009, 07:20:29 pm
Remember my game wasn't working? Well, ages ago, I took out the CC and replaced it all, and i'm still looking for a lot of it.

Anyway, where can I find any of these hairs? Particularly the bottom right as it's my favourite Smiley

I'm sorry it's so small, and please ignore the white face in the bottom right one too. It's just from my game not working properly [I have just updated my drivers so hopefully *crosses fingers* it will be fixed!].

Thank you in advance Smiley
7  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Objects Not Showing Up on: July 03, 2009, 01:33:04 pm
Okay, this is really weird, but whilst my hair & makeup custom downloads are showing up fine, the objects I downloaded are not.

They are not in the buy catalog, yet the hair and makeup is there when I change the appearance of my Sim.

What's going on and how can I fix this?

I know they're in the folder because when I start up it says "Enable Custom Content" and the objects etc. appear in the list, like the "shop at home" coat rack.
8  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Mesh Problem? on: June 30, 2009, 06:48:54 pm
Alright, this keeps happening and it's not only ruining custom hair and clothes in my game, but default ones too, as well as the thought bubbles and ltos - I think it's a mesh problem but I know nothing about it so i'm not sure.

Anyway, this keeps happening randomly in my game:

The Lot

Thought Bubbles
^ His was the same too.



Menu Going Weird
^ You can also see in the list of people the fourth one in whose face is white, and I just gave her a make over.

Sometimes these clothes/hair/items/lots are fine, and then this happens  huh

Anyway, please help as i'm pretty sure it's crashing my game too, but randomly :\ And a couple of times my computer has crashed during the Sims and then says 'Overheated', but that could be nothing to do with it *shrug*.

I've ran the HCDU and there are no current hack conflicts. Thank you!
9  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Sims In Paris CC on: June 28, 2009, 08:23:57 am
I remember a very long time ago - before I knew how to add CC to my game - looking at Sims In Paris and they had amazing stuff.

Anyway, i've found a few recolours etc. which included the meshes, but is there anywhere I can find all the stuff that was on Sims In Paris?

I've checked the graveyard and it isn't there unless i'm blind [which is possible lol] and in a desperate hope I checked the booty.

Anyway, help appreciated so thank you in advance Smiley
10  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Neighbourhoods on: June 26, 2009, 04:27:42 pm
I would like to find Neighbourhoods with lots/houses and preferably Sims please Smiley

I know and have downloaded Orville and have heard of Port White Water and Riverside, so any others would be much appreciated, thank you Cheesy

Also, where can I find downloadable families? Smiley
11  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Exporting Sims on: June 25, 2009, 04:12:10 pm
Hey Smiley
I've created a Sim in game using CAS [I have all EPs, no SPs] and following this fantastic tutorial: I have extracted it & packaged it - everything is fine.

But I was told there was a way to check what files are included with your Sim, so I know who to credit for meshes, clothes, recolours, hair, eyeshadow etc. I think I remember Clean Installer or something being mentioned but i'm not too sure.

Anyway, so yeah, I would really like to find out what comes with it - and will the meshes be included within the Sim or would I have to get people to download them seperate?

Sorry, i'm so new to this but I really wanted to give something back to the Sims community for helping me so much and thought i'd start where I thought it was easiest Cheesy
12  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Saving Game Crashes Computer on: June 24, 2009, 06:47:02 am
*cries* I thought i'd solved all my problems Sad

When I save the game, it starts saving as it usually would, but then everything goes black - like it does when the computer is off, and I have to restart as nothing else can be done.

So, basically, saving my Sims game crashes my computer - what the hell could be doing this? I took out all the hacks/mods/careers i'd downloaded in the last day [except for the bigger families one because there may be a problem if I take that out]. Although I get the feeling this may not be to do with downloads...

I'm so sorry about needing help again, I really don't mean to bother you all so much but I really appreciate the help Smiley
13  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Game Won't Load on: June 23, 2009, 07:22:51 am
Alright, I am really sorry if I am asking too many questions/posting too many friends, I really don't mean to bother anyone so I just wanted to apologise for that in advance Smiley.

My game is having a few troubles, I click on the icon, everything is fine, the intro film loads and I can go to the Neighbourhood Chooser screen where I choose Belladonna Cove.

But, it won't seem to load after that - it stays on Belladonna cove for ages [the bars go across] and on two occasions has restarted my computer weirdly.

I don't get what's wrong, anyone mind helping me please? Smiley
14  Simmers' Paradise / Where Can I Find...? / Sims 1 Superstar ---> Sims 2 on: June 22, 2009, 05:55:59 am
You remember Sims 1 Superstar [I think that's what it was called]? Well, it was one of my favourite EPs they've ever done, I loved the model and fame side of it.

Anyway, i'd like to make one of my females into a model and was wondering if there's anything similar to what was in that EP? Like photoshoots, model career etc.

Just anything similar really [my latest EP is AL]. Thanks Smiley
15  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Creative Ways To Play The Sims on: June 15, 2009, 07:31:24 am
I'm looking for creative and interesting ways to play The Sims - I usually do the whole family thing [mother stay at home with children, father out to work etc.] and i've done it for so long it's starting to get a tad boring now.

I particularly like eras from the 1900s to the 1950s but can't seem to find a way to play just those eras, and what I would do in them.

I don't like werewolves, vampires, witches etc. because it's a tad too "weird" for me!

I'm running out of ideas, and I love them Sims, so I don't want to get bored. Any ideas? Cheesy
