[edit] Enabling Custom Content

Many problems with custom content failing to show up are due to having not properly enabled custom content.

[edit] How to Enable Custom Content

[edit] Enable Custom Content in Game Options

  • Load Sims 2.
  • Click on the Game Option Button which looks like a little gear or cog.
  • Set "Catalogs Display Custom Content" to ON.
  • If you have Nightlife or later expansions, set "Display Custom Content Dialog at Startup" to OFF.

[edit] Restart the Game

  • Close Sims 2 completely - exit the game so it is no longer running.
  • Then, start it again, i.e. restart the game.

[edit] Test

  • Once the game has loaded after restarting, go into Create a Family or a lot and see whether your custom content is showing up.


If it is still not working...


[edit] Do it Again

Often custom content will not begin working after enabling and restarting just once. You will likely have to enable and restart a second time (as described below) for much of your custom content to show up!

[edit] Enable Custom Content Again

  • Go into the game options as you did above and make sure that the settings are still correct - "Catalogs Display Custom Content" is set to ON and "Display Custom Content Dialog at Startup" is set to OFF.

[edit] Restart the Game Again

  • Close Sims 2 completely once more - exit the game so it is no longer running.
  • Then, start it again, i.e. restart the game. This will now be at least the third time running the game.

[edit] Test

  • Once the game has loaded after restarting, go into Create a Family or a lot and see whether your custom content is showing up.


If it is still not working...

I have just installed a new Expansion Pack (EP) or Stuff Pack. Now some or all of my custom content doesn't show up.
