What's the Sims?
Useful question if you want to know what this site is about!
The Sims is a wonderful social life-simulation game by Maxis.
The Sims are virtual creatures who live in houses you build and furnish for them, they work (if you want them to), they fall in love, have friends and neighboors...
You need to purchase the game to use any add-ons you find here. You can find all the information about it on Electronic Arts/Maxis web site, if you have a PC, or go to the Aspyr site if you have a Mac.
This site is absolutly not affiliated with Maxis or EA.
You're totally lost with this site and don't manage to download anything, or you don't know what to do with the downloaded files. Or the items you have downloaded don't show up in your game, and you don't understand why.
OK. Don't worry, there's a full step by step to help you with the downloads!
The downloads procedures are approximatively the same for objects, walls and floors, but it's a bit different for the skins found on this site, because the files are zipped on Mac and not on a PC, but you'll see, it's not that hard to do neither. ;)

if you don't know if you have a Mac or a PC, here's a hint:
If you see something like that each time you open your computer, you have a PC.
If you see an apple somewhere on your computer and if you have already seen something like this, you have a Mac.
