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

Hey there, I'd just like to say that I'm having trouble with this trick. I always forget the pixel_trading sims name's, so I wanted to try something like this. When I extract the .rar or .zip files there is then the Sims 2 Packaging icon thing. Then When I double click>Install>Ok theres a bunch of packaging files. How do I know which one is the whole sim? When in CAS, I put my cursor over the pixel trade sim, and it just shows a bunch of numbers for a different package file. Hopefully someone can un-confuse me. :] Thanks!

When you install your sims, you should ALWAYS do it with Clean Installer (or MacUnpac on a mac). Then you can pick and choose which CC you're installing, can avoid the infamous puregreenm file, and you can see which file is your sim so that you can rename the package file when you're done installing.

If you read the first reply to this post it goes through step by step of what to do. If you have any further questions or need anything to be clarified, PLEASE do not hesitate to ask :D
