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

Oh, this is brilliant and much easier than what I do. I keep a list of the sims I've downloaded, who created them, and where I downloaded them from. After putting them into my game, I fire up SimPe and use it to rename them. I usually open up each of the places I've downloaded from in separate tabs, and go through double-checking that I've named and credited them correctly.

I try to make the sim's last name the name of their creator. Like I have Gules Kohler-Wielle Bondchick currently running amok in my main hood.. :)

But um, yeah. Definitely switching over to your method!
