When I played The Sims 1 I didn’t have many downloads until the very end of it’s life. I quickly moved onto The Sims 2 with a brand new computer. It didn't even take me a week to learn how to customize my game. The objects in Sims 2 doesn't work like Sims 3 objects. Objects only had a few basic recolors. ModtheSims.info taught me how to change the coding to allow new recolors but it required having many files that only allowed extra recolors. If you wanted a red stove, you had to download a recolor from another simmer but sometimes that red wasn't the red you wanted. Three reds, four blues and more random color files would fill my Sims 2 folder. Then I was introduced to mods! Longer Sleep, Meals Anytime, Radios Don't Wake Sims! My game lagged and crashed. I couldn’t handle the clutter or the massive headache of trying to sort all the files.
So many hard to find files too!
Since that day, I’ve become OCD with my Sims games. Folders, Subfolders, Updating, Finding tips on how to speed up my game. I’m going to pass on my tips to you!
