The Sims Emporium -- Frequently Asked Questions

Site Information --> Frequently Asked Questions

Q:
This Mod Gallery thing confuses me. What is it and how do I use it?
A:

This section of the site contains links to mods I've personally downloaded and/or find useful or particularly noteworthy for one reason or another. As such, it is a work in progress.

Things you should know about it:

  • Clicking on an image will give the full-sized version (if available)
  • All download links open in a new window
  • You may have to register on the site before you can download
  • You will likely need to read an FAQ on mods to get these working right, especially if you've never experimented with Sims 2 mods before. Go here.
Q:
I don't know how to install mods. Can you help me out?
A:
A very good tutorial on installing custom content can be found here.

Q:
I got the custom content installed, but it's still not working right. What now?
A:
If you haven't done so yet, look at the tutorial above to make sure that you have indeed installed it correctly. Following that, you should check out this tutorial, which covers all of the most common problems with custom content showing up.

Q:
The download link you gave me isn't working or doesn't seem right. Help?
A:

Possible causes for this:

  • You have to register at most of the sites before you can download their files. Make sure you've done that.
  • If the link is to ModTheSims2, try reloading the page. Sometimes one of the MTS servers goes down. Try visiting later.
  • If the link is to the sims resource and is showing up as subscriber-only, I'm sorry. Sometimes the good artists get promoted to "featured artist" on that site, which basically gives them free license selfishly not offer *any* of their files to non-paying members of the site. Try visiting pmbd, and please contact me letting me know which file has become unavailable so I can update the link.
  • If all else fails, contact me and I'll try to sort it out.
Q:
I have a question that you haven't answered here or anywhere that I can see.
A:
Feel free to contact me, and I'll reply to you as soon as I can.
