RAR or ZIP Your Custom Content

When uploading to MTS2, you will need to compress your files into a RAR or ZIP. MTS2 only accepts .rar or .zip files for uploading custom content - you cannot upload .sims2pack or .package files, as these files are uncompressed. Compressed files take up less space - which means they're quicker for you to upload, take up less space on MTS2's servers, and are quicker for people to download.

A program to create RAR or ZIP Files.

These instructions use WinRAR. It is a great little utility that can both compress and extract from RAR and ZIP files. Other programs such as WinZip and 7zip can also be used, but you will have to look at their help files to see how to use them, as they will work slightly differently. WinRAR is our recommended program, and it is quite easy to use.

WinRAR is a trial program, often called "nagware" - this means that you can use it for free for 40 days, and once the 40 days are up, you will get a "nag" screen asking you to pay for the program. You can still use WinRAR completely free after 40 days - you just have to click "close" on the nag screen when it comes up. However, if you use it and like it, you should consider paying for it, even though you don't actually have to.
