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.
Thanks Nepheris, I'm glad that I can help this way. :)
I know this is post is old but I can still thank you, right? You're helping me so much with this! Why didn't I discover this a little earlier?
Thanks thanks thanks ^^
I'm glad I could help! You're very welcome :)
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.
Well, now I'm glad I could help you too, haha! But, thanks again ;D

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.
You're welcome, I'm glad that you find it useful! :)

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.Edited at 2013-11-12 11:24 am (UTC)
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?
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! :)
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.
