INSTALLATION WARNINGS FOR THE SIMS 2 SEASONS EXPANSION PACK
Please do NOT install The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack into the same location where you have already installed The Sims 2.

If you do this, The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack's files will overwrite The Sims 2's files, and neither game will work properly!
By default, the installer will automatically install The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack into a separate location: if you choose to install The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack elsewhere, please make sure that it is not the same place where The Sims 2 is installed.

To get both games working again, please reinstall The Sims 2 and then reinstall The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack.

Also, we recommend that you back up your saved game files before installing The Sims 2 Seasons. Please see BACKING UP YOUR USER DATA section below.
When uninstalling your most recent expansion pack, the uninstaller will delete all saved games as they will be unreadable by previous versions, including The Sims 2 base game. Backing up your saved games before installing will allow you to restore these files if you uninstall this expansion pack.

INSTALLATION
The Sims 2 is required to install and run The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack.
If you have a version of The Sims 2 Body Shop or The Sims 2 HomeCrafter Plus already installed, please make sure it is closed before installing The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack.

Warning: At the time this Expansion Pack was finalled, Windows Vista had not been officially released, and there were some issues with early Vista drivers.  If you are having problems running on Vista, please check with your graphics card manufacturer for the latest drivers.


BACKING UP YOUR USER DATA
This product will create saved games in a different format from your currently installed games.  As a result, when uninstalling your most recent expansion pack, the uninstaller will delete all saved games as they will be unreadable by previous versions, including The Sims 2 base game.
We recommend that you back up your current saved games before installing The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack, if you think you will want to go back to previous versions of The Sims 2.
Then you can restore these saved versions in order to play The Sims 2 base game.

Here's how:

1) Find your saved games on your computer. By default, Sims 2 saved games are kept in C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\EA GAMES and C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2. Saved games for other users on your computer are stored under their respective username folder. Don't worry if the "All Users" folder for The Sims 2 is empty on your computer; it may not have been used for this version of the Expansion Packs or The Sims 2.

NOTE FOR VISTA USERS: Your game data is stored in c:\Users\\Documents instead.  

2) Copy these files and folders to a safe location on your computer. Because you may have many files to store, we recommend compressing them using a file compression utility, or burning them to a CD.

3) If you uninstall The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack and wish to play a previous Sims 2 product, such as The Sims 2 base game, just copy these backed up user data files back into the same locations listed above.


NEW TO THE SIMS 2 Seasons Expansion Pack
Seasons and Weather
Ah, the beauty of the changing seasons! Sims never truly appreciate the eternal sunshine of Summer until they’ve lived through a harsh Winter. Now you can also give your Sims the splendor of brilliantly changing leaves in Autumn, blossoming trees and flowers in Springtime, and glittering, pristine snowfalls in Winter.

 * Setting up Seasons for your Neighborhood
 - At the Neighborhood screen, use the Season Chooser to pick the seasons for that neighborhood, including which order they occur in. There may be some seasons that you won’t want to occur for some neighborhoods. For instance it might be odd if a desert neighborhood experienced a real Winter. On the other hand, if you want to create a more arctic climate, you can omit all seasons but Winter to keep your Sims snowed-in year round.

 * Weather Tips
 - Keep an eye on the weather by tuning in to the new Weather Channel or by reading the forecast in your daily newspaper. By catching the latest report, your Sims can prepare for a storm, chase butterflies, or invite the neighbors over for a snowball fight, but beware, the weatherperson may not always be right!
 - As the weather changes, so does your Sim’s tolerance of the great outdoors. Make sure they’re dressed for the conditions and keep an eye on their new personal thermometers when they’re outdoors.  - If they get too hot, they overheat and may pass out. Similarly, if they get too cold, they can freeze!


Gardening: Sims Dig it
Whether your Sims prefer toiling in their vegetable patches by the light of day or the mysterious pleasures of gardening at night, they can now enjoy actual fruits of their labors. Juicy tomatoes, luscious strawberries, apples, lemons, and more—your Sims can plant a lush garden, grow their own produce, then eat/cook it themselves or sell it.

 * Creating Garden Plots
 - From Build Mode, click on the Garden Center icon and then choose the Gardening option. Select the Garden Plot then click your mouse where you want to place the first tile and hold and drag out to the size you want.
Once you have a plot, you can direct one of your Sims (in Live Mode) to fertilize it or plant crops by clicking on the plot. Once they have crops planted, they need to TEND and WATER them.
 - Your Sim's crops need some attention to truly thrive. Make sure they get enough water and remove any stifling weeds as soon as you see them. Your Sim’s garden might also attract some unwelcome attention in the form of pests.
 - If your Sims take good care of their plants, they will eventually yield a crop of mouthwatering fruits or veggies. Your Sims can then harvest the plants and use them to stock the refrigerator or a new juicer with the bounty. Money driven Sims can simply sell the produce straight from the garden.

 * Building a greenhouse
 - Choose the Gardening option in the Garden Center in Build Mode. Then select one of the greenhouse wall options and build them like you would build a normal wall. Once, you have your walls constructed, add a roof with the greenhouse roof tool.

 * The Garden Club
 - Garden Club members get discounted seeds and other gardening goodies and can win prizes (including Simoleons) for superior gardens. Once your Sim has some gardening experience, they can apply for membership.
 - To apply for membership or to request an official rating of your Sims’ garden (they must be a member to get a rating), direct your Sim to talk to a Garden Club representative via the telephone.
 - There are many factors that influence how well your Sims’ garden is rated by the Garden Club. High quality plants and trees that are well-tended earn a higher rating, while dead plants, under-watered plants, and the presence of weeds lowers your rating.


Fishing:
Sink a line in your Sims’ pond to see if they can reel in some fresh fish for dinner.

 * Your Sims can fish in ponds as long as they’re big and deep enough to support fish life.
 - Click the pond, choose FISH USING..., and then pick a bait (Sims who have no fishing experience can only choose to fish with a worm). As Sims gain experience, they earn talent badges, unlock new lures, and are more likely to catch fish.
- When your Sim gets a nibble, they reel in their catch. If they catch a really gorgeous specimen, they might want to show it off by mounting it on the wall. They can also stock the fridge and cook it later or they can sell it.


Other New Stuff:
 * Hair Style Options
 - You can now choose a variety of different hairstyles for each Sim. Match a different look to each of their wardrobe types, including the new Outerwear category. An elegant bun for formal attire, a swingy ponytail for exercise, a warm hat for outdoor gear. The choices are nearly endless.

 * Leftovers
 - Is your Sims’ family small? Do they cook enough for six people even when there are only two of them? Well, now your Sims can keep that extra food from going to waste. Simply, click the prepared food after everyone has eaten and choose PUT AWAY LEFTOVERS. Back into the fridge they go! Your Sims can get them back out of the fridge by choosing GRAB LEFTOVERS and then picking the specific leftovers that they want to enjoy.

 * New Career Paths
 - There are six new career paths that your Sims can pursue. Whether they’re itching to enrich young lives in the Education field or ready to take their chances in the Gamer profession, your Sims can earn cool new Career Rewards. Other new career paths include: Adventurer, Law, Journalism, and Musician.


PERFORMANCE TIPS
When you run The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack for the first time, the game will automatically configure its graphics options based on your machine's specs. If game performance seems sluggish or choppy, there are a few things you can try to improve things:

* Make sure your computer meets the game's system requirements (see above). If you do not meet these requirements, the game is unlikely to run acceptably.
* The number of Sims and pets you have on your lot is one of the biggest factors in determining performance. Lots with low numbers of Sims and pets (4 or less) will run more smoothly than lots with many Sims and pets (8+).
* In the game, go to the Graphics/Performance Options panel. Reducing or turning off options will improve the game's performance. Reflections, Screen Size, and Smooth Edges are the options that will affect your frame rate the most, followed by Shadows and Lighting.
* In the Audio Options panel, moving the Audio Quality slider all the way to the left will improve game performance.
* Turn off all other applications while running the game.
* Some large showcase lots in the game (like 1 Wright Way in Pleasantview) may be slow when scrolling around. Frame rate should pick up considerably when the camera stops moving and you are interacting with the Sims.
* Adding RAM to your system is an efficient way to improve performance, especially if you are running with two or more expansion packs installed.
* Defragment your hard drive regularly for optimal disk performance (Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter).
* System performance will get worse if your hard drive becomes more than 85% full.  Try to keep enough free disk space.


KNOWN ISSUES
Low Hard Drive Space: If you run out of hard drive space while playing The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack, the game will be unable to store new data, such as saved games, video captures, and new neighborhoods. In certain cases, when attempting to save the game with no hard drive space, the game will appear to save, even though data has not been stored. Please make sure you have at least 500 MB of free hard drive space when running the game.

Wheel Mouse Camera Rotation: If you're unable to rotate the camera by using your mouse wheel, please make sure that you set the scroll wheel button function to autoscroll in your mouse settings.

Installation/Un-Installation: If you experience any problems installing or uninstalling the game, please temporarily close any virus scanning software you have, and try again.

Locale Settings: Depending on your version of Windows, you will have two or three places where your locale settings are stored. If these settings are not consistent with each other, you may experience problems saving movies, and may have extra saved game folders generated under My Documents (or Document if you're running on Vista). In order to fix the problem, you will need to make sure all of your locale settings match. For example, if you are playing The Sims 2 in Thai, all your settings should reflect Thai location and language:

Windows 2000: Open the Regional Options Control Panel, and set the Your Locale option. Then click Set Default..., and select the appropriate location. These two settings must match.

Windows XP: Open the Regional and Language Options Control Panel. Under Standards and formats, select your language option, and then select your location in the location field. Click Apply, then go to the Advanced tab. Select the correct language in the Language for non-Unicode programs field, and check the box under Default account user settings. Then click OK. Make sure you reboot to complete this process.

Incompatibility with SB Audigy2 or SB Audigy2 ZS sound card on Windows 98SE:
The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack is not compatible with the SB Audigy2 or SB Audigy2 ZS sound card, when running on Windows 98SE.
If you have one of these sound cards on the Windows 98SE operating system, and are experiencing problems starting up The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack, updating to the VXD driver for that sound card may fix the problem.

Windows 98:
  4.0 and 5.1 speaker configuration not available on some Windows 98 sound drivers, and only stereo is available. (Sound Blaster Live!, Sound Blaster Audigy, Forte Media FM801) Updating to the latest drivers may allow these options to be selectable.
  NVidia NForce 2: sound problems when selecting 4.0 or 5.1 speakers.  Sound is played correctly only in stereo.
  M-Audio Sonica Theater 7.1: Sound frequently pauses and skips.  Upgrading to the latest drivers may help.


WINDOWS VISTA ISSUES

On Windows Vista, your game data is stored in a different place.  Instead of being in a My Documents folder, your game data will be saved in your Documents folder (usually: C:\Users\\Documents)

At the time that this Expansion Pack was completed, Windows Vista had not been officially released, and there were some issues with early Vista drivers.  If you are having problems running on Vista, please check with your graphics card manufacturer for the latest drivers.

Vista requires a DirectX 9 compatible video card.  While older cards may run just fine, they are unsupported and drivers may not be updated.

Here are some of the known issues:

NVIDIA GEFORCE SERIES

PROBLEM: Stuttering sound during gameplay and lower frame rate
CARDS: Most Geforce cards
Please check for the latest drivers. NVidia is actively working on this issue.

PROBLEM: Sims, diamond sim indicators, and other various objects appear corrupt in both the neighborhood and lot screens on Windows Vista
CARDS: Geforce 7300

ATI RADEON SERIES

PROBLEM: Gameplay does not meet the 15fps minimum requirement. Setting details to low and off allows an average frame rate of 24fps.

WINDOWED MODE
To run The Sims 2 Seasons Expansion Pack in windowed mode, first create a shortcut to the game by right-clicking on sims2ep5.exe and selecting "Create Shortcut." Then, right-click the shortcut and select properties. At the end of the "target" line, add a space and the text "-w" (without quotes). Click OK, and then launch the game by double-clicking on the shortcut. Running the game in a window will allow you to more easily switch between different programs, but please note that running other programs at the same time as The Sims 2 will be detrimental to the game's performance. Also note that edge scrolling does not function in windowed mode. If you experience any graphical anomalies, please make sure your desktop is set to 32-bit color.

Other command line options:

 -w      windowed mode
 -f        fullscreen mode

setLotLightingFile [filename]
Allows the player to create a new lighting file with specific lot lighting values.  Used to make special light settings per lot.

We also added 2 new Terrain Types to use in the Neighborhood creation cheats:
(You can choose these in the neighborhood dialog)
terraintype desert
terraintype concrete
nhdregiontype desert
nhdregiontype concrete

The Sims 2 University Cheats:
(The Sims 2 University Expansion Pack is required for these cheats)

changeLotZoning [residential | community | greek | dorm | secretsociety]: changes the zoning type of the lot. Before rezoning a lot using this cheat, make sure there are no Sims currently living in the lot. To use this cheat, enter the lot that you would like to rezone, and then enter the cheat, choosing one of these zoning options.

boolProp dormSpecificToolsDisabled true/false: enables build/buy mode tools that would normally be disabled when in a dorm lot.

boolProp allow45DegreeAngleOfRotation true/false: allows users to rotate any object in 45 degree increments instead of the 90 degree increments used for most objects.

The Sims 2 Cheats:
help: lists all the cheats in the game.

help [cheatname]: displays specific information about the cheat.

exit: closes the cheat window.

expand:   expands or contracts the cheat window.

moveObjects on/off: removes footprint limitation for all object placement in Buy Mode and Build Mode. Removes limitations placed on hand tool for when objects are in use, or are normally non-movable objects.This is known to cause issues with game elements, routing, hidden object generation and manipulation, etc. Note that using this cheat allows you to delete objects that normally cannot be deleted, such as Sims, the mailbox, and the garbage can. If you delete these objects, there is no way to get them back, so be careful!

aging -on/off: prevents Sims from aging. This can disrupt the carefully tuned gameplay balance, and will prevent little Johnny from ever growing up, so treat this cheat with care as well.

autoPatch -on/off: This cheat lets you re-enable notifications when there is a game update available for The Sims 2. Just turn Autopatch on and go to the Custom Content Browser (the little snowflake button on the UCP in the neighborhood). If there's an update available you'll be asked whether you want to download it.  

slowMotion [value]: The slowMotion cheat takes one parameter: the "slowness" setting (such as slowMotion 4). This value ranges from 0 to 8 where 0 is normal speed and 8 is the slowest speed.

boolProp enablePostProcessing true/false: enables the use of postprocessing cheats (see below); very useful for movie making (also see below). Please note that you must have a video card that can handle pixel shaders in order to successfully use this cheat. If you use the cheats and you don't have pixel shaders, the screen will most likely go partially dark, and will not come back until you turn off enablePostProcessing. If you turn on postprocessing, and you turn on cinematics, and a cinematic plays, you may also experience unwanted graphical glitches.

bloom [r g  b x] (rgb is color) (x is the bloom amount) [0.0 - 1.0]: This cheat adds a blur effect, like a sitcom flashback moment. You must have entered boolProp enablePostProcessing true for this cheat to work.

vignette [centerX centerY X] (X is the vignetteing factor) [0.0 - 1.0]: Adds a blur effect from the specified center. Using "vignette 0.5 0.5 0.5" should put some blurry bits at the edge of the screen. Vignette 0.5 0.5 1.0 is maximum edge blurriness. You must have entered boolProp enablePostProcessing true for this cheat to work.

filmGrain [val] [0.0-1.0]: This cheat makes the screen grainy. You must have entered boolProp enablePostProcessing true for this cheat to work.

letterBox [val] [0.0-0.4]: Adds a letterbox effect to the view. You must have entered boolProp enablePostProcessing true for this cheat to work.

VIDEO CAPTURING
The ability to create movies with The Sims 2 is built right into the game. You can simply start creating a movie in game by pressing the 'v' key on your keyboard and 'v' again to end the movie. You can also pause and un-pause the capture (without pausing the game) by pressing the 'b' key while recording. There are also various options for the quality of the movies that you can create. Please note that adjusting the Video Capture options in the game will affect the performance of the game.

Changing your Video Capturing options:
What screen size will my video capture be (in pixels)?

Small = 128 x 128
Medium = 320 x 240
Large = 640 x 480

What difference does adjusting Video Capture Size in Camera Options make?

Low: This option will provide the highest amount of compression for resolution. Videos made with this option turned on will be of lower visual quality, but save on hard drive space and will affect performance the least.

Medium: With medium selected the video resolution will increase, but the videos will take up more hard drive space and will affect performance a bit more than low.

High: Selecting high will provide videos with the lowest amount of compression for resolution. Videos made with this option turned on will be of the highest compressed quality, but this option will increase the file size of the videos significantly. It is recommended to only use this option if you have a 1.4GHz machine or faster.

Uncompressed: This option will not compress the video capture. Uncompressed will tend to create very large file sizes, about on the order of ten times larger than the high quality setting. It is not recommended to use this option unless you have at least a 2.4Ghz machine or faster, and a faster hard drive helps as well (ATA100 or greater). This option is ideal for advanced users who wish to change the videos to other formats.  

Video Sound Capture: This option will either enable or disable sound from being captured in the Video Captures you create. Having this option enabled will affect the overall performance of the game during the video capture, and will also increase the file size of the video capture.

*Tip: If recording frame rate is low and your video seems choppy, try recording with the sound off. This will allow the game to slow down the simulator to match the recording frame rate so that playback will be smooth.

*Tip: Video recording should work with all configurations. It may take some experimentation to determine the balance of size, frame rate and quality that works for your system.

*Tip: Recording at the maximum quality with sound will only perform acceptably on very high-end systems. On most machines, you will have to sacrifice either sound or quality to record with a smooth frame rate.

*Advanced Tips: All the video capture settings default values are in an .ini file that you can edit. You can modify things like capture frame rate, default folder to capture to, file naming, capture size, max bit rate, and preferred codecs. Want to capture in a different codec? Just install the codec and then make it the preferred codec. The file is located here: My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Config\VideoCapture.ini.

*Tips for making great videos: Plan your shots! Be sure to use both standard camera mode (F10 will hide the interface menus) and also the Cameraman mode (aka free camera) activated via the 'TAB' key. Cameraman mode is available in both Neighborhood and lots and allows for very controllable and super close movements as well as sweeping pan and zooming type shots. This will take practice but once you get the hang of it, you can make some really incredible video captures with Cameraman mode!

*Advanced Tip for making great videos: Sometimes, the in-game camera restrictions can hinder that perfect shot. The Cameras in the game are tuned for game play, but sometimes they are not the best for making that really great video you are looking for. You can try editing the camera settings, but make sure you backup the old ones first before experimenting with things like min height, max height, speed per step, amount per key press, field of view etc. Do this at your own risk as these changes will also effect how the camera moves in the game. Making changes to these settings may make the game unplayable. Advanced users only! The camera txt files are here: My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Cameras

Sharing video captures with friends but they cannot view the video? We included the codec On2 VP6.1 with The Sims 2 base product. On2 Technologies, Inc. offers free downloads of VP6.2 for personal use. In our tests, it appears to be seamlessly backwards compatible with VP6.1. Please visit the On2 Technologies website for more information.

WEB CONTENT
Players who wish to take advantage of The Sims 2 web features must simply have an Internet connection and a current web browser.

The Sims 2 encourages players to create and modify their own wonderful Sim worlds. However, objects, patches, programs or other modified content not created by Maxis are not always compatible with The Sims 2.  If you are experiencing issues with your game and downloads, try uninstalling or removing your downloaded content and introducing it slowly back into your install. This will help narrow down the problematic file. For more information refer to our help pages at http://www.thesims2.com.

CUSTOM CONTENT
You can add your own content to the game for music, TV channels, video games, collections, neighborhood terrain, and neighborhood pictures. Create your own skins with The Sims 2 Body Shop and create wall coverings, flooring, and ground cover with The Sims 2 HomeCrafter Plus (available for download from www.thesims2.com).

Skins, Wall Coverings, Flooring, and Ground Cover: To use a .sims2skin or .sims2pack file that someone has created using The Sims 2 Body Shop or The Sims 2 HomeCrafter Plus, just double-click the file. The file will install itself automatically no matter where it is located on your computer.

Music: In order to play your own music in the game, just go to My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Music, and drop your .wav or .mp3 files in the appropriate folder.

MPEG Layer-3 audio coding technology licensed from Fraunhofer IIS and THOMSON multimedia.

TV channels: To have your own movies played on the in-game TV channels, just go to My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Movies\ and place .avi files in the appropriate folder. Ideally, the files should have stereo sound, and be in a 128x128 pixel format; otherwise they will be stretched to fit.

Video games: In order to have your own files played as video games, take any existing .avi file that you have. Then browse to one of the game subfolders under My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Movies\Games\ and place your files in the appropriate folder. Rename your movie as the exact name of one of the existing movie files (gamename_ATTRACT.avi, gamename_INTRO.avi, gamename_P1LOSE.avi, P1WIN.avi, gamename_P2LOSE.avi, or gamename_P2WIN.avi, where gamename=bus, ssx, or sc4). Then when your Sims play the corresponding game segment on a computer or video game system, your movie(s) will play on the screen instead.

Arcade games (played on the Arcade Game objects): For these, place your .avi files into the folder under My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Movies\Arcade\ and use the exact names of the existing movie files (gamename_intro.avi, gamename_loop2.avi, gamename_loop3.avi, gamename_loop4_win.avi, gamename_loop4_lose.avi, gamename_loop5.avi, and so on, where gamename=game1 for Maze Pirates or game2 for Viking). When your Sims play the corresponding Arcade Game(s), your movie(s) will play on the screen instead.

Collection icons: To use your own icon for a custom collection, simply drop any .tga, .jpg, .png, or .bmp file into My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Collections\Icons, and your picture will show up as an option when you create a new collection. Since pictures will be stretched to fit the format, they should be small and roughly square for best results.

Custom Neighborhoods Using SimCity 4 Terrain:
New custom neighborhoods for the Sims 2 can be created using SimCity 4 terraforming tools. First, only small cities can be imported into The Sims 2, so be sure not to start with a medium or large city. Make sure the city you use contains roads; otherwise you will not be able to place lots in your new neighborhood. Take the .sc4 file you wish to use, and place it in your My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\SC4Terrains folder. When you go to the neighborhood creation screen in the game, your terrain will be available to use to create a new neighborhood.

When creating custom neighborhoods, please also note the following:

Most of the terrain features created with the God mode tools can be imported, including foliage (except for palm trees); however, fauna (animals) are not imported. Also note that terrains are imported mirrored from the original SimCity layout.

Switching to Mayor Mode, only original SimCity 4 road bridges or SC4 Deluxe small steel arch bridges, manually laid roads/street that are straight, right angle bend, cul-de-sacs, and T & 4 way intersections are imported as streets into Sims 2 neighborhoods. Diagonal roads and railroads are ignored and not imported. Practically all other placeable features are ignored upon import: zones, elevated roads/highways/freeways, buildings or other facilities, airports, landmarks, etc.

Once loaded into the game a neighborhood's default terrain type can still be modified via the following cheat:
1. With the neighborhood you wish to change loaded, open the cheat dialog by pressing Ctrl-Shift-C.
2. Type:
   terrainType Desert  (Changes current neighborhood terrain type to Desert. Note that the cheat is case sensitive.)
   terrainType Temperate  (Changes current neighborhood terrain type to grassy terrain. Note that the cheat is case sensitive.)

CUSTOM NEIGHBORHOOD PICTURE
In order to create a custom picture to represent your neighborhood on the main menu, first save the picture you wish to use as a .png file (a 4x3 size ratio works best, but pictures with other proportions will be stretched to fit).

For "home" (non-expansion/stuff) neighborhoods: The file must be named N0XX_Neighborhood.png (where XX is the neighborhood number). Then place the file in the neighborhood's directory (e.g., My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods\N004).

THE SIMS 2 BODY SHOP
Overview:
The Sims 2 Body Shop is a powerful tool that lets you design unique and diverse Sims that will be playable in The Sims 2 and sharable with your friends. You can create custom content such as clothing, skin tones, eye colors, hair, or glasses that can be used in any combination to make infinitely unique Sims.

The Sims 2 Body Shop also gives you incredible control over your Sims' faces through the ability to select from a diverse range of facial "types" and sliders to fine tune even the smallest details, such as nose length, eyebrow thickness, lip curl, and chin shape.

User's Manual:
A complete user's manual is available on http://www.thesims2.com.

Installation:
The Sims 2 Body Shop is included in The Sims 2 and is automatically installed with the game. There is no separate installation necessary.

Installing New Content:
When installing new content, make sure that neither The Sims 2 nor The Sims 2 Body Shop are currently running. Important note: DO NOT install the Body Shop Maxis Starter Content Pack along with The Sims 2. This content is already installed with The Sims 2; installing the starter pack on top of The Sims 2 may corrupt your game data.

Hot Keys:
There are several hot keys in The Sims 2 Body Shop that help you preview your Sims. Many of these can be used in combination to get a precise view of your Sim.

F3 -- Toggles between "free camera" and "set camera" modes. In free camera, you can use the following mouse controls to rotate the camera in all dimensions:

* Click and drag the Left Mouse Button -- Orbits the camera around the Sim's head.

* Click and drag the Right Mouse Button -- Controls the camera zoom. Move the mouse away from you to zoom out. Move the mouse toward you to zoom in.

* Click and drag Left and Right mouse buttons together -- Changes the center point the camera is looking at.

F5 -- Toggles the 3D room off and on. If there is a bitmap graphic named "userBkg.bmp" in the "\EA Games\The Sims 2\" folder in My Documents, the image will be displayed as a backdrop.

F6 -- Displays the Sim in the "bind pose," with arms held straight out. This is helpful for viewing parts of the Sim that may be hidden by the normal pose. To return the Sim to the normal pose click on any Sim thumbnail or content thumbnail.

F7 -- While in "set camera" mode, displays the Sim at the far zoom position.

F8 -- While in "set camera" mode, displays the Sim at the near zoom position.

F9 -- Toggles the UI off and on.

< and > -- Rotates the Sim. (Also shown on the keyboard as the comma "," and period "." keys.)

Display Options:
Pressing ALT+ENTER will toggle The Sims 2 Body Shop between windowed mode (default) and full-screen.

You can manually set the screen size to 800x600 by creating a copy of The Sims 2 Body Shop shortcut.
To create a shortcut, right click on TS2BodyShop.exe and choose "Create Shortcut". To edit the shortcut, right click on the shortcut and select "Properties." At the end of the line called "Target", add a space after the existing text and type "-r800x600" at the end of the path name.

To set the screen resolution to 1024x768 follow the same steps, but instead type "-r1024x768".

Known Issues:
Issue: Textures may appear blurry on video cards with minimum spec video memory (32 MB)
Solutions:
 * Run The Sims 2 Body Shop in 800x600 screen size (see instructions in Display Options section above)
 * Reduce your monitor's desktop resolution to 800x600

Issue: Skin Tone projects that were saved using the pre-release download version of The Sims 2 Body Shop will not load correctly in the "Load Saved Projects" screen in this version. The projects also will not "Import to Game" successfully. This does not affect custom Skin Tones that already were imported successfully with the pre-release version of The Sims 2 Body Shop.
Solutions: Please check TheSims2.com for more information on this issue.
