As promised, here is the follow on to my recent post taking us back to the beginnings of CC for Sims 2, old dosnt always means outdated!

In recent years I’ve found Sims Cave is a fantastic place to locate old downloads, sadly the links dont always work but usually theres a picture so you can start a wcif from that! What I’ve found first is this really cool looking bed made by Sims2luxe, I dont know the poly count on this stuff, it maybe high so download with caution!

From Coco Sims is some really great gym equipment.

Heres something I never knew, there was an original Eponymous Garden from Parsimonious, looks like some different plants to what there is now.

From Yuppie sims is this really cute loft bedroom set, sorry about the teeny tiny thumb nail pic, was all I could find!

This has a Master File which is the loft bed so make sure you get that for the rest to work!

Going through (one) of my flash drives I came across a few goodies that I forgot I had! From Ney at BPS was these two really pretty sets, they’re not that old, I dont think but I dont know if they’re uploaded anywhere else. I’ve included both sets in the one zip file.

I love these candle chandeliers by jhd1189 to match the maxis wall chandeliers

One download I love that you wouldnt think is super handy is Khakidoos 2 Chains and a bar! I love using these chains to suspend lights for a hanging look, Ive also used them to suspend bikes upside down (using omsps) great idea for a bike shop or to save room in a garage!

And another great oldie from Khakidoo is the drawer crib, for your more poorer sims!

And from Klinny is a new Pet (new in 2007!), a one eyed plant creature! You can feed it pat it talk to it, might be a great pet for plant sims!

Lastly, for this post another old favourite is Rgdy Annes YaDero Ballet Figureines. Use them sparingly, they are high poly, but so worth it! Upload courtesy of Huge Lunatic.

Navigating the depths of Blacky Sims Zoo

Standard

Ive had a couple of people say they have trouble wth Blacky Sims and how hard it is to navigate, I know I spent quite a long time working it out! So here’s a quick guide to how I get it to work!

  1. First off to download from here you need an account. So hit register (if you are using google chrome the site ‘should’ automatically translate, if you are using something else right click anywhere on the page and choose ‘translate’) Untitled
  2. Once you’ve registered if I remember correctly you will need to wait for an activation email, be paitent, it may take a minute, it may take a few hours! Click the email activation and it will take you back to the site and you ‘should’ be now logged in.
  3. To download again look to the left and choose the game you want to download for.Untitled
  4. I only play sims 2 so thats what Im basing this on. Once I’ve chosen sims 2 it brings me to a new page and at the top right there is a box. Hit the arrow on the all catergories box and it will bring up lots of optionsUntitled
  5. Choose what you want to look at and then hit ‘Lot’. So here I chose New Meshes S2. Untitled
  6. Now here you can either just scroll and look at all the cool stuff, or you can choose another catergory. Im going to look at decoration.Untitled
  7. Two ways to download (make sure you are logged in as it will take you back to a log in page and once you’ve logged in it redirects you back to the front page!!) You can either look at the item think ‘I like that and hit the download to the right Untitled.png
  8. Or you can either click the title or the details buttons to get some more info on the item and then hit the save button to downloadUntitledUntitledAnd thats it, hope that helps some people! Happy downloading, Blackys really has some treasures, its a shame if you dont delve in and have a good look through!

I was looking for something (walls I think it was) and I came across some really old, old downloads, but really cool ones, ones Id either seen a loooooong time ago and then forgot about, or had never seen at all! So heres my finds! (and again, theres not many items in the way of building, so sorry!)

From netmicro, way back in 2006 (THATS 10 YEARS AGO PEOPLE!!!!) theres this amazing Oil Burner with really cool animations!

DOWNLOAD

Also from netmicro in 2007 is The decoration Transformer. You want to place an alarm clock on a coffee table but cant, well pop it on the transformer, pick up the transformer, put it back down, when it turns green means item is transformed and can now place on a coffee table! Genius!!!

While digging I came across the name ‘simtech2’ attached to garage downloads, stuff that would make up really good garage lots, so I dug some more, and first came up with a bunch of dead links and no pics, so I dug even deeper and I came across a WHOLE media fire folder chocca block full of pics AND downloads! Heres a few pics

I actually have a heap of recolours for this Im wondering if it was made repsitory to the crib somewhere, as Im sure they are the same colours as the crib. I have no clues as to where I got them, Ive spent about 10 mins looking, and as its getting close to midnight Im giving up on that search for now.

I got onto baby stuff as there was once long ago a site that had some really great kids stuff, and I dont remember what site it was, and to be honest what they had hahaha!! But I know I loved it, Im pretty sure there was some plastic pools in there, with roofs, thats the extent of my memory, (getting so old!)

So its getting late, but by no means am I finished on this blast from the past hunt, all thats left to say is……..

I was quietly going through some of my playable houses revamping, and realised I didnt have many nice looking toilets, and it seems I only use a few ALL the time, so I started a search and, while I know these arnt build items, they are essentially something important that goes into a finished house before it gets sold!

First up is one of my faves, its a toilet by Mummy Sims with recolours by Tara
