Keeping track of your sim downloads.

We've all been there, downloaded a MESS of sims and then when you've gone to put them in your 'hood discovered you can't remember who's sim is who and where you got them from etc.

I've seen a few threads about this kind of thing at legacy_writers and some other places, thusly, I thought it was high time we posted a little "Share your system" post to air what people in the comm do, and for people to ask questions or suggest tips for others to take on board. :D

So, how do you keep track of what's what? How do you remember who made which sim once they're IN your game? And do you have any downloaded sim stories 'from the wars' when it comes to adopting other peoples pixels into your game? :D

This might seem really silly, lol but I'm having a little problem doing this. I download the sim, when I install, do I put it straight into the download folder and then rename?
I have been putting it into a seperate folder and installing it into that, but when I move it to my download folder, it doesn't showup in my make a sim bit.

I have saved loads of sims with their names and creators without installing now. Ready to get into my game and become part of my new legacy.

Any help would be appreciated.

It really shouldn't matter what folder you install your sims to initially - as long as the correct package file for each sim go into your downloads folder before you start the game up they should show up fine.

By default clean installer/mac unpac install them directly into your downloads folder, which is why I rename them there.

Does that help at all..?
