Hey^^
I use this file maid:
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=119585

It's not really the same as Clean Installer, it just extracts everything in rars as far as it can and either moves them or opens them depending on it's format.

It doesn't let you sort the DBPF packages from the rars but it installs sims2packs using Clean Installer or the Sims Custom Content installer. It just lets you extract files from a lot of rars at the same time - and always opens sims2packs with your default sims2pack opening application.

So if you have Clean Installer set for default 'Open With' on sims2packs, then it installs everything else and then opens Clean Installer with the sims/lots/etc.

Also I’m not really sure this was the right place to post this thread^^; Unless you're somehow using it in a story ? Tongue

Moved to the right section.  Sims 2 discussion related.  Wink

I've never used Sims File Maid 2 before.  Though I did hear that it's helpful for those who are still lost on installing custom content files in the correct directories.  Nice tool for "beginning" downloadaholics.  :angel:

well, I like to know where all my files go. I use clean installer myself for te sims2pack files. I make sure I've got my DL folder opened, then install with clean installer, then move the files that comes up to a new (named) folder inside the DL folder.

I once had around 10000 files I had not sorted through in my downloads folder (I was kinda new to downloading myself, and installed too many sims). Imagine to try finding one file in that chaos Cheesy

i use the clean installer and win zip and everything ends up in just one downloads folder, unless the creator has a specific folder that it already generates when you unzip. REALLY unorganized.

I use the "maid" all the time, for not-packaged files. I open the packaged files only with the Clean Installer, unchecking custom content in which I am not interested.

The minus of the "maid" is (and the Clean Installer too), that they always paste the files in your Downloads, and not in the sub-folders. that's why, I have a subfolder named "test", and when I paste a certain number of CC - I drag it to the "test" folder, and use the Clean Installer, to sort them in the right subfolders (hair, clothing, etc).
