Can someone post a pic of what the folders are meant to look like

hannah2021-09-251 point

hello, find the sims 2 CD 4 iso here:
mount this, and it will allow you to download the patch—the download speed is a little slow, but it works! :)

SimsLover2021-09-122 points

Hi, where's the code fill for mansion and garden stuff?

skitty2021-08-241 point

I found a fix for 'please insert CD-ROM, select ok and restart application. Download this
And go to C:Program Files (x86)EA GAMESThe Sims 2TSBin
copy & paste, select replace
(You can also try to run it as administrator )

Wilsonnextdoor2021-08-211 point

It is important to PAY ATTENTION to the following steps OR the sims 2 might not work.
Please note the Sims 2 is an older game so it might not work on computer but you can always try. ;)
Step 1, Run the 'AutoRun' to start the installation proces (inside the Gamedata folder).
Step 2, When the game asks about the CD serial fill in the code inside the CD Keycode folder.
Step 3, After the Basegame has been installed do NOT boot up de game yet or it will not work. The game will ask you to insert the original CD.
You'll also need to Patch the game or you will not be able to install expansion packs and stuff packs. Inside the CD Keycode folder you can find the patch.
Step 4, Please install the last Stuffpack 'Mansion and Garden Stuff' the same way as the last 3 steps.
Step 5, When te 'Mansion and Garden Stuff' is installed try to search for the installation folder on your drive.
In most cases C:- Program Files- EA games- The Sims 2. Now open the TS Bin forlder off 'Mansion and Garden Stuff'.
Step 6, Now in the M&GS CD keycode folder there is ann .exe called 'Sims2EP9'. You will need to copy this to the TS Bin folder
you just found in Step 5 and replace it.
Step 7, Delete the sims 2 shortcuts created on your desktop and make one from the Sims2EP9 one.
You can now try to boot up the Sims 2. If it is not working I'M sorry my dear but try retracing step 5 and 6.
If it works and you can start to play you did it right and can install the other SP and EP's
Well done and enjoy playing the Sims 2.

The CD patch wants me to insert the sims 2 CD 4 to install, please help me with that

For those who want The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, I perfectly downloaded it here :, without any problems. Just follow the instructions of this page :
I have some minor 'intense lightning' problem in CAS, for now I did not get the time to find the site where I saw someone explain how to get rid of it, but know that it's fixable.

it says i need a DVD-rom what is this and how can i get it?

Lexie2021-05-200 point

The patch and no CD downloads don't do anything. They both just say to 'insert CD' and won't run.

Lexie2021-05-200 point

Anyone figure out what to do? I've installed the base game, inserted the keycode on the back, and installed the patch. Now it says to insert a CD which was not included in the original download nor the patch...

Name2021-05-190 point

i downloaded 'NoCD' and 'PATCH' however thee patch says i haven't installed sims 2 and i still cannot play this

AskAmberk2021-05-1410 points

Hey fellow simmers! I have been playing sims since it was just sims so when I found this I just couldn't stop smiling! Then I tried to download....that proved difficult. JUDE WILLIAMS and SPUTNIKSA helped big time but I found the directions to be a little confusing so here is my amended guideline below BIG SHOUT OUT TO THE TWO ABOVE! Seriously you guys rock! Couldn't Stop smiling yesterday and already half way through adding the expansion packs. It really holds up!
PROBLEM 1: 'this app has been blocked for your protection'
Solution: First things first - take SPUTNIKSA's advice and go to and change your settings. The video is super clear and he walks you through each step (took 2 minutes then a quick restart of my computer)
PROBLEM: Where to download/extract to -making cleanup easier
Solution: I suggest that once you have downloaded any files you extract to your Desktop - just makes things clearer for me and easier to cleanup after
Now we are good to go! Going right on to JUDE WILLIAMS's guideline (with some amendments*)
Step 1, Run the 'AutoRun' to start the installation process (inside the Gamedata folder).
Step 2, When the game asks for CD serial fill in the code below
Step 3, After the base game has been installed it will ask if you will like to run, do not run and instead finish installation and quit. If you try to run the game it will have an error and request that you enter CD.
Step 3-2: Download and extract patch and 'NOCD' to Desktop, run patch. Find your Desktop Folder in your files - not from your desktop and copy 'Sims2' and paste into C:- Program Files- EA games- The Sims 2. Now open the TS Bin folder It will say it is a duplicate, select replace
Step 4: Download and install the Stuff Pack 'Mansion and Garden Stuff' the same way as the last 3 steps.
Run Patch and you are ready to play
To play simply go to 'All Apps' or wherever you would find your programs - may be called Program files - it is where you find your windows or start button

Complaint2021-05-010 point

I have the game but can't open it because it needs a manual code! Please provide.

explodingtardis32021-04-230 point

I don't know where to put the patch for the base game. I was able to download one stuff pack before realizing this was how I was supposed to do it so I deleted all the EPs I had downloaded already. I tried to copy the Patch for the base game into the Sims 2 folder but it said I didn't have enough memory. I have over 20 GB free on my PC. I was so excited to find Sims 2 for free as I only grew up playing Sims 3. Any help would be appreciated. I know how to download custom content and mods but this is confusing me somehow.

Works amazing if you do it well. If the resolution is stuck at 800X600 Then this should help, ! In step one, you'd like to change what it says with this: C:Program Files (x86)EA GAMESThe Sims 2The Sims 2 Mansions and Garden StuffTSDataResConfig/Graphics Rules.sgr! And if your PC asks for you to go to the Microsoft store click more options and use Notepad! Hope this helps you!

Hannah2020-12-120 point

hi i have tried the long process but never got past the extraction and override of the gardens and mansions files to my sims2 files. Is there maybe something wrong with my extraction app? I use winrar free

slim g2020-11-280 point

this game is the coolest

SputnikSA2020-11-277 points

i finally figured it out
so the first thing you want to do is do the standard install process with the sims 2 when it is finished do not open the application as you will need to do more stuff
when it is done you will need to install the patch but it says you need cd 4
i found a video with some files that help with that here :
what you need to do is extract it and copy or cut the files and paste it in your sims 2 files override everything and then you may install the patches
then you need to install mansions and gardens pack
if you are trying to install it and it says 'this app has been blocked for your protection' dont worry this video should help :
once you have installed mansions and gardens pack it will check if your sims is up to date and if you used the files correctly then it will say it is up to date
if it doesnt cancel the install and paste the TS2 updater files in the directory again
then it will be installed dont open it yet we are almost there
then you need to install the NO_CD file provided by abandoned ware when you install the mansions and gardens pack rar
and paste it in your TS bin then you delete all your desktop shortcuts for the game and make a shortcut out of the SIMS2EP9.exe in the mansions and gardens directory and hopefully the game will work if it doesnt im sorry
but it worked for me so doesnt hurt to try?

SputnikSA2020-11-231 point

i did what Jude Williams said and i finally got the game to work after installing some files that allowed me to bypass the cd 4 thing and finally got the game to launch however for what ever reason the game would decide to have a 'fatal crash' every time the game would try and load. I was really hoping to play this game but atleast in my case the game is completely unplayable in the sense that it wont get past the loading screen

How do i2020-10-212 points

I'm having the same problem! It's installing as a DVD on its own with no space left to add a patch! @Jude Williams says it's supposed to be C:/Program Files/EA Games/The Sims 2
But I don't even have an 'EA games' folder! I'm obviously not knowledgeable of how computers work so I'm completely lost... I just want to play the sims 2 again :,(

TiredGamer2020-10-202 points

I tried all the tips in the comments but I can't get it to work... I installed it and it created an ISO file which windows happily opened on its own and made it into a DVD drive for whatever reason which I guess is right. I tried to install it but it said no CD so I did all the steps in the comments and even downloaded a patch, still with 'insert CD 4'. There was no CD folder as far as I can see.
I tried Dave's instructions and downloaded manual updates but I cannot install them in my sims folder as it says there is no more space so I can't install it and override the patches. I'm just so lost... I was really hoping this was going to work.
If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated. I've spent like.. 4 hours on this.

WIRF2020-09-29-1 point

Dave333332020-06-101 point

I finally made Teen Styles run.
Remember to install to the ROOT of your hard drive instead of the typical installation. Or it will be rendered inoperable. I spent a good amount of time working on this.

Inge2020-06-093 points

I followed the steps and it works perfectly for me. Thank you !!!!

Dave333332020-06-090 point

No matter how many times I try to run teen styles. The installer either freezes, renders the game inoperable. And at one time it finished and told me 'The Sims 2 was installed improperly.'
I tried different sources and this installer was made by Satan himself.

Dave333332020-06-090 point

New issues running the game. Mainly starting.
After installing all expansions, the game would trigger a BSOD so I started under administrator.
Evem then the game would crash. I have no clue which pack is the rogue one, but I'm slowly taking care of it.

Dave333332020-06-082 points

Okay... After some fiddling and using the instructions, I got it running.
First, and most important thing... On modern operating systems, the patch is broken, I even fetched a CD 4 iso, it crashed. You have to manually update it by downloading the update files (Can actually be found on a YouTube video, kinda easy to find I think.) and then manually dumping them into your installation directory, let everything overwrite, I'll try to send it over to the administrators of the site at a later time maybe.
Regardless, doing this and following the steps allows Sims 2 to run.
We've done it guys, we finally cracked it.

Dave333332020-06-082 points

When I try to run the patch, it asks for CD 4.

If you do it this way you'll only need the cd crack from mansion & garden, cause it is the latest stuff pack. When Base+ M&G stuff work you can install the others without needing a crack and it wont ask for the cd from the other packs

Jude Williams2020-06-0711 points

When I gave them the sims 2 files i also included a installation guide but that's gone i see. So I'll put it here.

Please if anyone knows how to fix this?

I have the same problem as SORROWFALLSAWAY does anyone know how to fix it?

Empee2020-05-292 points

We need to wait for some brave & clever soul, who will find a suitable NoCD patch, that matches this exact version. Probably the one posted here is not correct. I sought but failed to find one.

I don't know what to do.. it says I need to insert a cd but I cant find it

Retro Pixel Lizard2020-05-171 point

With or without the expansions, this is still the best of the entire Sims franchise. I even found a way to get rich enough to have a manor (If I could even design a manor) in less than 15 minutes without cheating, but that requires the open for business expansion.
If you got black rectangles under your Sims, open up the console (CTRL SHIFT C) and enter ' boolProp objectShadows false'.

Query2020-05-102 points

Is there a specific order you need to open the files to get the game to work without the disk?

I downloaded all the files, including the no CD and patch files. However, when I try to launch the game or the patch or the no CD fix, it tells me to insert a CD. I have it mounted to a virtual Drive in power ISO, but now I'm kind of at a loss. Anyone have any ideas?

Fellow retro gamers also downloaded these games:

The Sims was a game changer in defining what sandbox games should be.

Imagine being a normal person doing normal everyday things, except in a video game where you can do pretty much anything you want. Sounds boring, until Maxis came along.

And while The Sims 4 is still a hot topic now, I know there are plenty of Sims 2 players out there still loving the older title.

And there is a ton of community content to be discovered for this game. Whether you’re looking to improve the base game styles or change the experience completely, you’re sure to find something interesting in this list.

30. Neighbourhood

The Sims 2 was released back in 2004, so you probably want some visual upgrades if you’re playing the game in the 2020 decade (or beyond).

A good place to start would be couriousb’s Neighbourhood pack.

Textures for most terrain tiles, including grass, dirt, concrete, and roads are replaced with this mod.

Terrain looks much better now, with added detail making the environment much more pleasing visually.

This is the best-looking terrain pack you can find for Sims 2, hands down.

29. Criquette’s Linden Trees

A great match for the Neighbourhood is Criquette’s Linden Trees.

The mod replaces the default oak tree textures with linden trees. The small visual upgrade makes forests look much more appealing.

Criquiette’s textures are much less blurry than the vanilla trees making everything look much better.

You’d be surprised at how much this can change the look and feel of the game for the better.

28. Maxis Centerpiece… as Centerpiece!

There have been so many changes to the series as its grown since the release of Sims 2.

Being one of the earlier releases and given the huge number of variables that goes into a life simulation game, it’s understandable that some things were not as fleshed out as we’d like.

One of those things is that adding a centrepiece onto a table, would not allow your sim to using tables. Yes, that may seem like a tiny detail.

But what’s a life simulator if it doesn’t reflect real life as accurately as possible?

Certain items in the game already act as centerpieces, allowing your sims to use the table even when the item is placed.

However there are other small items that prevent you from doing so, and that just doesn’t make sense. Now you can decorate your dining tables with pretty much any small object and still be able to use them.

27. All Walkbys

Why is it that sims who walk by your house are mostly people you don’t even know?

Well the default game mechanic is that only unknown sims walk by, unless fewer than 8 unknowns are available.

Bothered by the lower likelihood that actual friends walk around outside your house? Well-known modder Cyjon created this fix.

With this mod the mechanic changes so that only unknowns walk by if there are fewer than 255, forcing the script to choose from pretty much all sims in your neighborhood – increasing the chances that you’ll see your friends wandering around.

26. Don’t Walk Away from Stove While Cooking

Another annoying gameplay mechanic for many fans was cooking.

Assuming your adult sims know that burning food is bad, why would they even walk away from the stove while cooking?

Perhaps they weren’t reminded enough as children that playing with fire could burn the house down.

This is especially true in Sims 2, as I’m sure no one wants their sim to die from a house fire. Well, not all players.

No need to worry about that now! Because with this mod your sim won’t walk away from the stove while cooking anymore.

25. Fire Mod

As if causing fires wasn’t already problematic enough, an actual occurrence of fire brings about a completely new list of issues.

Wanting to add to the realism of the game, modder simler90 created the Fire Mod.

Learning Fire Safety now plays a huge part in how your sims react to fires.

Compared to the vanilla mechanic where knowledge of Fire Safety doesn’t make an impact, now sims who have studied Fire Safety are more equipped to deal with fires.

More knowledgeable sims no longer panic and instead try to extinguish fires fast. The mod is well thought out too.

For example, your smarter sims won’t work on fire tiles that are already being put out by someone else. Talk about teamwork!

The modder even went further as to add enhanced reactions for children who are knowledgeable in Fire Safety. They are now likely to use the nearest phone to call the fire department, instead of being completely useless. Good times.

24. No Moaning Till Desperate Patch

One of the games features that can very quickly become annoying is how needy your sims are.

And I get it; the whole point of the game is to watch out for what your sims need.

Of course, they need to have certain ways to let you know that they need/want something.

The whining and arm gestures are a bit much though. It makes even adult sims look like children.

Well this mod fixes that. Your sim will no longer whine and throw tantrums until they’re literally dying. Be careful though, as you might end up reacting too late.

23. Cyjon’s Ghost Hack

Ghosts play a large part in the Sims games as they have a number of activities that affect gameplay.

There are multiple fixes to Ghost mechanics in Sims 2, but Cyjon built on the previous versions to create his own.

Among the changes include Amok Servos, where servos who are scared to death will run amok instead of die.

The Pushy Scares tweak makes it so that ghosts can now successfully scare sleeping sims instead of having to wait for them to get out of bed.

There’s an even a tweak for Cleaner Ghosts – where happy ghosts are more likely to clean. How nice of them!

22. CEP

Much of the appeal of the Sims series is due to the freedom it gives builders.

Players can build and decorate their dream houses, down to the little details like vases and picture frames.

If that’s something you’re into then you’re going to want to check out CEP.

CEP gives you much more options in terms of customizing objects, as it enables color settings for Maxis objects in the base game.

It’s even compatible with most expansion packs, including University, Open for Business, and Pets.

21. Sim Blender

There’s also the type of Sims fan who spends tons of time on character creation/development.

If you prefer to focus on the sims themselves instead of building, Sim Blender is the ultimate tool for that.

Sim Blender is basically sims “god mode,” allowing you to customize multiple aspects of your sims’ lives.

You can manually set or remove relationship flags. Or set child, grandchild, parent/grandparent, or sibling designations.

Heck you can even manipulate your sim’s age.

The best tool for complete control over your virtual universe.

20. Extended Family Treated as Family

Download sims 2 base game free torrent

For most Sims fans, the biggest part of the game has to be the social mechanics.

Forming relationships, making a family, and going through your sim life. Significant experiences makes the Sims series truly exciting. That’s what the next few mods on my list are about.

This one specifically is the Extended Family mod.

As the name suggests, extended family is now treated as family.

This directly impacts romantic relationships as they are no longer possible for second cousins. Great grandparents now have the option to family kiss or encourage their great grandchildren as well.

Why was it even possible for second cousins to form romantic relationships?

I guess that’s a question I won’t even try to answer, but you won’t have that problem with this mod.

19. Just Be Friends

This one is aimed specifically towards teens and up, making their romantic relationships more interesting.

We’ve all probably experienced this at least once. You like someone but they just don’t feel the same way.

Well if this is something you can relate to, you can probably already tell how this mod adds that sense of realism to your Sims experience.

You now have the option to decide if a relationship is not going anywhere serious, and to agree to just be friends.

Once applied, crush/love flags between the sims will no longer be present.

18. Smarter Choice Of Parent For Entering College Cinematic

Starting a family is also a huge part of any Sims game.

With that, relationships between parents and children are just as important once you’ve settled your own romantic relationships.

In line with that, you ever notice how that cinematic of sending a child off to college seems to always be a little… off?

Well this mod fixes that.

It makes that scene much more realistic as well. Absentee parents will no longer be selected to take their kids to college, as it’s now based on the child’s Lifetime Relationship with the parent.

17. Triplets & Quads

Before we get ahead of ourselves, you’re going to have to plan for your children’s future first.

Well, your virtual children.

For all you know, you might actually be sending 3 of 4 children to college.

The Triplets & Quads mod adds the possibility of giving birth to well…triplets and quads.

Not only that, but you have complete control as well.

You can decide for yourself how many children you will give birth to, assign the odds for 1-4 children, or keep it completely random. Fun stuff!

Side Note: for any Sims 4 players reading this, we’ve also catalogued a huge collection of pregnancy & baby mods in another post. Check it out if you’re big on virtual families.

16. Have/Adopt Child Want Fix

The have and adopt a child mechanic also has its flaws as they are completely separated in the game.

If your sim wants to have a child, adopting one won’t satisfy that.

The same applies in reverse as well.

With this quick fix, that will no longer be an issue as having a child satisfied the adoption want, and vice versa.

15. Free Range Cereal Bowl Set

Now that you have little toddlers running around, it can get difficult to keep them all fed.

Especially if you just had quadruplets.

No, I’m not talking about the financial impact (that’s obvious).

The actual task of caring for each and every toddler can get quite tedious. Luckily there’s a fun and creative way to automate the task.

The Free Range Cereal Bowl Set actually lets toddlers feed themselves. Weird, yet classy!

You simply place the bowl on the floor, add some cereal, and voila. Your toddlers can eat on their own. Somehow.

I’m not sure how ethically sound this is may be, but come on it’s a video game. Worse mods have been made.

14. Pets & Children Share Bed

As your children grow up, it isn’t uncommon to want to get them a little furry companion.

It’s especially common in Sims 2 as they even created a whole separate expansion pack called Pets.

One common complaint is that pets are not able to sleep in the bed with children.

Well now they can.

For all the pet-lovers out there, your pets can now choose to sleep on the foot of the bed while being used by a child.

Take note, though, that once the child becomes an adult this will no longer be possible. There won’t be any room!

They can still sleep on an empty side of a double bed though. So if you like to keep your pets close check this one out.

13. Lifespan Mod

Since we’re talking about having children, modder Phaenoh found some issues with how they grow up in Sims 2.

Most of the life stages went by too fast, making it difficult to keep up with a sim’s needs from birth.

The Lifespan Mod addresses those issues with improvements to life stage lengths in the game.

All life stages are prolonged, adding a day or two here and there.

With thorough playtesting, each life stage has been increased to give the game a more realistic feel in terms of growing up.

12. Job Seeking Noticeboard

The base game included 10 options for job tracks. But with all the expansion packs you can find even more exclusive career tracks for the game.

But the mechanic for finding a job was not updated.

You go through the newspaper or the computer looking through job postings, and by the end of it you’re given 3-4 random jobs to choose from.

What if the job options you’re given aren’t in the fields you wanted to work in?

The Job Seeking Noticeboard actually makes a lot of sense: it adds a job board posting in community lots.

Through the job board you’ll now be able to directly select any job you want without having to go through randomly generated offers you’re not even interested in.

11. Become an Author…Without a computer

This next mod is not only for aspiring writers… it’s a cool additional feature for anyone.

It’s now possible to write a novel on paper instead of having to do so on a computer.

All you have to do is purchase the manuscript in the Creative portion of the Hobbies section and you’re good to go!

As stated by the modder himself, this is a great choice for poorer sims who just can shell out cash for a new fancy-schmancy Steve Jobs device.

10. New Lifetime Wants

Among the available Lifetime Wants in the Sims 2, there were actually four college career paths that were added in the University expansion pack but later removed.

This mod brings those four Lifetime Wants back, as your sim may want to reach the top levels of the Artist, Natural Science, Paranormal, or Showbusiness careers.

Many people who played University enjoyed these additional Wants and now you can too.

As some sims may aspire to raise multiple pets or become Mayor, your sim may prefer a career as an Ecological Guru, a Visionary in the world of arts, or even a Cult Leader. Who’s to stop them?

9. Better Roach Stomp

Nobody likes dirty cockroaches. This is as true in the Sims 2 as it is in real life.

For those who haven’t experienced cockroaches in the game, first of all good for you for being clean even in a virtual world.

Secondly, cockroaches in the Sims are nasty little pests that spawn when the environment is dirty.

They cause your sims an unbelievable level of discomfort by cancelling actions and distracting them until the issue is resolved.

The easiest way to get rid of these pests is stomping them out, but the success rate is pretty low. Making a roach infestation even more of an unwanted stress.

This simple fix increases the chance that stomping will actually kill the roaches.

8. No Quitting

With so much going on in your sim’s life, it can get challenging to be able to manage every single aspect of it.

It doesn’t help that most of the time your sims aren’t very good at telling you what they want, either.

Many users have gotten annoyed at how their sims would sometimes suddenly leave jobs to find that they weren’t satisfied with the pay.

How were you supposed to know that anyway?

This simple mod fixes that problem. It makes your sims complain first instead of actually quitting.

Now that may not sound like much of an alternative, but at least the choice will be left to you to decide what happens next.

7. Always Flush Toilet/Wash Hands

For all the neat freaks out there: does it ever bother you how your sims don’t wash their hands after using the toilet?

Not only is it unhygienic, but may actually cause bigger problems down the line.

Your sim may end up clogging the toilet from forgetting to flush after using it. That would require hiring a repairman just to get it fixed, which I’m sure nobody wants.

Well messy or neat, your sims now have been gifted with much better toilet etiquette as they will always flush after use.

Sims with at least 3 points in their Neat rating will even wash their hands on their own.

No more having to micromanage toilet time.

6. Risky Woohoo

Many aspects of the Sims games have been dulled down, making the game accessible to a much younger audience.

That makes sense of course, as the game is rated for ages 12 or older.

However, many of the older Sims fans are looking for a much more realistic experience.

Leave it to the community to make it possible, starting with the Risky Woohoo mod.

As you probably already know what Woohoo stands for in the game, the mod increases the odds of conceiving.

The mod is actually a well thought out redesign & rebalance of Woohoo mechanics, as the odds change in different locations such as beds, hot tubs, cars, and even elevators. Yes, elevators. I didn’t know that was an option either.

The percentages used by the modder are even justified, as hot tub Woohoo would have a lower chance of resulting in pregnancy vs, say, if it were done in public.

5. Break Up Anytime

The next three mods come in a pack from simlogical, all affecting how relationships play out in the game.

All three aim to make relationship mechanics more realistic, starting off with the Break Up Anytime mod.

As the title suggests, this enables the option for married, engaged, or going steady sims to break up regardless of the state of their relationship.

As in real life, sometimes relationships just don’t work out. And there are an unlimited number of reasons for that. This mod leaves it completely up to you to decide.

4. More Realistic Relationship Decay

Next up is More Realistic Relationship Decay.

The modder wasn’t happy with the relationship decay mechanic built into the game, specifically how relationship ratings would drop back to 0 if sims are away for long periods of time.

With this mod, short term relationships will no longer be affected by distance once the relationship level is between +10 and -10.

Furthermore, negative relationships do not improve over time as well.

Bad blood between sims (relationship level of -95) will stay that way, and can now only be improved if someone apologizes – for which you’ll need the next mod on my list!

3. More Useful Apologies

Sometimes negative relationships can’t be avoided.

Maybe you were just messing around and someone got angrier than you expected. Maybe you even did it on purpose just for fun.

Whatever it is, once a sim is infuriated with another, it may be difficult to repair the relationship.

Luckily we have the More Useful Apologies mod which solves exactly that.

Apologizing now removes the furious state of angered sims, and the relationship rating is increased to just above 0.

If you want to give your sims a fresh start after all that fighting, this is the way to go.

2. ACR

If you’re looking for an even more realistic relationship mod, ACR is a great one to have. Really the best relationship mod I’d say.

Considered by most as an essential Sims mod, ACR (short for Autonomous Casual Romance) allows your sim to engage in different romantic interactions of their own free will.

Sims are now able to flirt, kiss, and even Woohoo with other Sims casually, without requiring them to be in love beforehand.

There are also tons of options here as you’re able to set gender preferences for each of your sims, making for a more diverse neighborhood.

The mod can even make it possible for teens to engage in relationship-related activity, adding a completely new sense of realism to the game.

But for that you’ll be needing this next mod to go along with ACR…

1. InTeenimater

InTeenimater, or known to most simply as InTeen, is a beloved mod for The Sims 2.

It adds a ton of new features focused enabling teen relationships in the game.

One of the biggest features is that teens are now able to get pregnant as well. Good or bad, I’m not here to judge just sharing the facts.

Best paired with ACR, teens are not only able to have romantic interactions with other sims, but experience the same repercussions as well.

The mod comes complete with interactions, maternity wear, and textures to now support teens and not just adults.

It also improves independence in teens, as sims over 18 can now even find their own place, follow adult career tracks, and are no longer required to attend school. Imagine playing an adult-style life with a kid in Sims 2!

What a time to be alive.
