How to Download Custom Content

Saturday, January 2, 2010
Before we begin you must have Winrar in order to extract the files.

First step is to go to a site and find your item(s) I am at LianaSims.
 I have never gotten a virus or had any problems with the items from Liana but just be wary of some of the other places since some custom content can crash your game.

Click Download and when you a box like this will appear. I prefer to save it to my downloads folder and continue downloading instead of extracting my files all at once.

As you can see here the file will be saved to C:\Users\"Your name"\Downloads. This is not the Sims folder that contains downloads so if you stop now your items that you just downloaded will not appear.
Now go to your downloads folder and select all (ctrl+a) the items that you would like to extract then right click on the items and click extract here

Magically the items appear as package files that are recognized by your game

Now the files can be moved to My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads where they can be enjoyed by your sims!
