Download - S2 Patches and Pre-made Sims [Sep. 17th, 2011|12:25 pm]

Since the official Sims 2 site is down (for good), I thought I'd share the official S2 patches for all EP's that were at the site.

The Sims 2 Official Patches for All EP's
Note: Base Game patch is most likely the DVD version.

Another thing. Maxis pre-mades (playable sims) for S2.
I realize that there's many sites that already have an archive of the pre-mades but since I packed all of them too, I may as well share them. (And I mean ALL of them, from all EP's including the bin families and UNI students)

***If you are looking for a Townie or NPC, check my Townie Archive**

Pre-made Info:

- All sims are packed with lots. Some of the families have been combined (see discription with each hood)

- Before using these pre-made sims, you'll need to  fix their memories in SimPE (i.e. remove all memories that include an "Unknown sim"). Using Pescado's Lot Debugger may also help ( Memories > Remove corrupted)

Exceptions:
*Original Bin-families (= sims that came with AL, Pets, Seasons, FT and BV) are safe to place directly to a hood and start playing.
*Tricou family with Rainelle Neengia (NL) are safe to use right away, their memories have been fixed.
*All UNI Bin-students are safe to use right away. Other students (living in houses) don't have relationships for others than their roommates, but they may have memories that need to be fixed: e.g. the Ruben brothers in Bright household and frat house at SSU
* All sims from OFB (including Chester Gieke and Larson twins) need to have their memories fixed if you place them with the lot

- No ghosts and extra character data included!

-All the sims have been packed by using meetme2theriver 's neighborhood templates, so all genetics are fixed. Credits from the fantastic work with the templates and fixing genetics goes to Meetme!

Pre-made Playables by Neighborhood:

Belladonna Cove (Bin-families included)
Desiderata Valley (Bin-families included)
Riverblossom Hills (Alexandra Teatherton packed with O'Mackey's, other bin-families included)
Pleasantview (Oldies packed with Pleasants, Burbs packed separately)
Strangetown (Nervous Subject packed with Beakers)
Veronaville (All Monty's packed together)

Bluewater Village (Chester Gieke and the Larson Twins included)

Pets, BV and NL (Critturs packed with Roseland, Rainelle Neengia packed with Tricou's)
Note: Please read Specific Info about packed up Tricou's and Rainelle HERE

I have linked to this post from mine and included information about you hosting the pre-mades here, too.

We need more places hosting these now that EA has abandoned TS2 so it's up to the players to help each other.

Thanks Engram :) I added the pre-mades also to Box.net just in case Mediafire deletes them.

I've only just found this resource because I needed to download a bin-sim.
You put SO much work in this and it's so useful to have. Thank you very much for making this available as a resource to everyone.

I think I've noticed something. As I said, I'm very happy with this anyway but I can't find the family Smith from Strangetown... Or was I being clumsy again and didn't see them in your downloadsfolder somehow?

Thanks so much for informing me, I hadn't noticed that myself :P They're up at Box already, but I added the family to Mediafire, too.

belated thanks

I found this post earlier this year, bookmarked it, and then school started and I had no time to play sims. Now that I've started playing again I want to thank you very much for this resource.

re your pre-mades

How did you do this? Did you reconstruct them with SimPE? I'm concerned about more than memories; I understand there can be lots of weird broken stuff connected to Sims, and I'm worried about this.

The sims are packed with the lots in-game, and they are packed with Clean Installer (by deleting all unwanted info about dead sims or relationships outside the household). In the original game, some sims have broken genetics and relationships but these sims are packed from fixed neighborhoods made by Meetme2theriver (as mentioned above). If you want to know what changes she made, you can check her livejournal for more details. If you are worried about using these files, you can always find pre-made sims packed individually on other sites, such as Maxis Taste (HERE). So far I haven't heard about any problems with using these files. The only issue I found in my testing was the excess memories, as I've mentioned above.

packaged lots and sims

According to Mootilda this date at MTS: No one knows everything that needs to be cleaned, or how to fix the SWAFs." These things ARE known to cause (eventual) hood corruption. I had tried someone else's packaged sims, and really love the idea, so was hoping yours were ok. I really don't think so. The only way to get all the playables is to install meetme2theriver's sub hoods, and her stuff doesn't include bin sim.

Re: packaged lots and sims

Meetme did include the bin sims with her cleaned up hoods, HERE. So if you want to have all the playables from all EP's, you should try her templates.

Question

I know this thread is old, but I hope someone can answer this. I downloaded Julien Cooke but how can I send him to the bodyshop and CAS?

Re: Question

Sorry for the late reply, this blog is officially inactive now. :P But if you install Julien with Clean Installer (from ModTheSims), you can pick which files to install. If you want just his character file, make sure that the lot file is not selected. That way he will be installed only into your CAS/Bodyshop files. If you want to install him with the lot (and find him in the neighborhood view lot catalog), select both files. Hope this helps! :)

Maranatah,
I really love you! I have been looking for Roseland and his doggy for two days now, but all the sites which previously hosted Maxis pre-made families have disappeared.

Thank you so much for keeping the TS2 legend alive, and all your hard work.
<3 <3
