Exclusive applications for the Sims on Mac
Applications made by my sweet boyfriend, Dom, for us, Sim-Players!
We can now rename our skins easily for expansions packs (Hot Date, Vacation and even SuperStar), and we can also check in our objects files if we don't have a conflict ID, and fix it, if needed, and correct .IFF files names, if they have been cut because of name's lenght.

Disclaimer: Use these applications at your own risks! We won't be responsible if you have any troubles with one of them: we have tried them and they work fine for us, we simply hope it will be the same for you.
