Sunni Designs creator policy:
My general, overall policy is to do
whatever you like with my creations
except upload them to a pay website or
charge money for them. I create items
for the game for fun and share them
freely. I expect any derivative creation
to also be shared freely with the same
policy. It would be nice to receive
credit for my efforts or even a message
letting me know you have
new, but neither is required.

Compatibility - Which expansion
packs/stuff packs do I need?
Every lot page lists which expansion
packs are required for the lot to show
up and function properly in your game.
If you do not have the correct
expansions needed for the lot it may not
show up in your game or may cause it to
crash. At this time NO stuff packs are
used in building of any lots.
How do I download a file?
Simply click on the download icon or
text. Each download is in .rar
format and will need to be extracted
prior to installation.
What is a .zip or .rar file?
The .zip or .rar formats are merely ways
of compressing a file for faster
transfer speed. Most Sims2 websites will
have custom content for the game shared
in either format. You will require a
program to extract the enclosed Sims2
package file from the .zip or .rar
archive. There are many free,

.zip and .rar files.
How to install the lot?
Once you have unzipped your package file
you need to double-click it for
installation. The game must not be
running at the time. Sims2 has a native
installer that will input the lot and
all custom content directly into your
The disadvantage to using the game's
native installer is that you cannot see
how many or what kind of custom content
that will be added to your game.
Anything will be installed, even hacks
or unwanted files. This can clutter your
downloads folder or lead to content
conflicts (game errors).
Clean Installer is a recommended
free program that will allow you to
review Sims2 package files such as lots
before installing them into the game.
Note that all lots offered on this
site are created in a 'new' game with
only the necessary custom content
included. All package files are checked

Typically this means that you have
removed or never installed custom
objects into the game. You can delete
the flashing object and save the lot.
Or, if you do not want to remove that
item exit the lot without saving.
Install the needed object into your

running. Run the game and check to see
if the object now appears correctly.
How do I turn objects at a 45
Many of the lots on this site
feature furniture and other objects at
an angle, and as a result this question
gets asked all the time. It is done with
a cheat. Press control+shift+c and type
true and enter. Now you can move
furniture at an angle. However, not
every object will function for Sims at
an angle. You will need to experiment.
