I have just discovered Sims 2 Apartment Life. Let me ask, is it worth it? I heard that some hacks / mods don't work with it. Is that true? I hope not, considering I have a ton of them, including Insimenator and Inteenimator.

I have the base game (of course), Nightlife, University, and OFB. I was hoping to get Pets in next. Where does Apartment Life fit in? Is it an actual expansion like "Nightlife" or is it just an extra like "Glamour Stuff"? Is it really all that? I have thousands and thousands of CC downloads, and I build tons of my own residential and business buildings (including my own apartments and flats) and don't know if I really want it or need it unless there's something astronomical about it. The furniture is kind of cool, but like I said, I use CC downloads more than the Maxis furniture. Is there something more to it - maybe that affect the Sims?

Also, I was kinda wondering - I have looked all over for a list of Sims 2 games in order of what needs to be downloaded first, second, third, etc. Does it matter what goes where and when? If so, please let me know (I do believe it did matter with the first Sims game and I did that in order). I am pretty sure the expansions do matter but the extras (like "Glamour" and "Fashion") don't matter. Am I far off?

It's quite good, although I wouldn't say it was one of the best EPs. There is a version of the insimentor that will work with apartment life.

It is an actual expansion pack. Like I said it's not that great, the apartments are quite cool though. And there's witches and the ability to network between sims.

And I didn't think it mattered which order you put them in, but I could be wrong.

The order in which you install EPs is up to your own needs or tastes or budget and should have no particular effect on the game (provided your system is capable of running the more system intensive (that is, generally speaking, post-OFB) EPs and your custom content is compatible with any newly installed EPs.

However, installing any patches for EPs in the same order in which you install the EPs themselves is highly recommended.
