F r e q u e n t l y   A s k e d    Q u e s t i o n s

please read this few lines before contacting us, perhapes your questions will be answered here.

·         What to do with the files?   

All my files are .rar files.

First you have to open these .rar filez with the program WINRAR

Then just put all .package files in your downloadsfolder:   My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads

To use all available recolorations you also need this little thing: CEP

Houses, walls and floors will be installed automatically after clicking the file (fileextension: .sims2pack). You can find the houses on the bottom of your screen, when you are in a neighbourhood at the buildmode. You can choose them there and place them on a free area.

·         why do some download not work?

Be sure that you have decompressed them wih Winrar, and no other programm, `cause others are having problems with .rar files.

Very important for recols is, that you have downloaded the meshes, these are the "bodys", and the recols are only the "clothes" without the meshes your recols won`t appear in game.

Be sure that you have got all nessecary addons. Otherwise the objecte won`t appear. As mentioned above, some Items are influeced by my addOns, even if they are original game objects. it is always better if you buy all expansion packs (EP), they are awesome!

If you have problem downloading .rar files, especially when they appear to be empty archives, please check out your connection security configuration. There isn't any empty files on the site, and all problems come from too old browsers, provider proxies and most of time personal security blockers such as firewall and antivirus suite.

You can also try to download with right click.

So de-activate them and download normally what you want. If you use one, you can change the settings to lower security, maybe you must deactivate the firewall at all. Don´t forget to reactivate it right after you have ended to download!

·         -What happen to the Forum?

Unfortunatly the moderators have not accepted reflexsims`policies concearning piracy, and file-sharing. For Reflexsims it is important to respect the intellectual property of all designers, and to share file with other members is only allowed with permission of the designer. Also Reflexsims does not agree with the piracy-mentality of some communities, and the Forum sadly became one of them with the time. It is really sad for me, but I had no other choice.


·         All Objcets are EP compatibel.

But some objects, such as bookcases or computers are changed while cloning if the creator has got addOns. I have got always every available addon, so If you don`t have them, it could be possible that some objects will not show all possibilities in your game, even if they are no EP-objects.


·         -What are Expansion Packs (EP) and where can I get them?

EPs are expansionpacks for the Sims. You can read more about them on the sims2 mainsite, and you can get all EPs at Amazon, here. With this you are also supporting Reflexsims:)

·         All about donation!

First of all, I´d like to thank you! By donating you are making a site like Reflexsims with more than 1TB traffic per month possible!

You can donate by clicking on the certain Paypal-link. Be sure that your browser accept cookies, otherwise you won`t be able to logIn to Paypal.

For payments with Paypal you don`t need a creditcard, just a normal bank account.

After the payment you will be redirected automaticly to the download-page where you can load your donationgift. If the link won`t work, or your browser was not able to redirect you because of security-setting or others,  please send me a mail with a copy of your paypal-mail you got after donating, so I will send you the download-link immediately.

I always try to make free as much as I can, but such a site is making really very  much traffic and with this it take very much costs. So I´m thanking you very much when you support the site by donating and I hope my donationgifts are making it easier for you.

·         Lost your purchsed items?

If you  have lost your donationsets you have paid for, you can send me the paypal-confirmation-mail you got after donating, and I´ll send you the sets. If you don`t have the mails, please make a screenshot of your paypalaccount where it should be written what you have buyed. So when it is confirmed what you have buyed, it would be a pleasure for me to send you your donationpacks again. Don`t worry, you will get all backJ


·         Recolor and Permission

Feel free to recolor all objects, but you may NOT offer or distribute the original meshes. You can put your recolor on your site, but you must link back to ReflexSims, because your visitors need the mesh that I made to be able to use your recolor. So if you only want to recolor my items you don`t have to ask again.

Donation items/set are under the copyright of ReflexSims and may NOT be cloned  or redistributed in any way. Since the designs inside of the packages are intellectual property of Reflexsims

You MAY NOT clone my items, except if you have my permission.

It´s also not allowed to share the items on this site via email (filesharing).

The pictures and files of this site may not be linked directly to show them or download them from outside this site. (Hotlinking)


·         Cheats               

Important and usefull cheats I always use in my game are these:

To enter cheats, first open the command console by simultaneously pressing Ctrl-Shift-C

boolprop allow45DegreeAngleOfRotation true  / false

put Itemsin a 45° angle. This cheat works only with University Addon!

Moveobjects on /off

removes footprint limitation for all object placement in Buy Mode and Build Mode. Removes limitations placed on hand tool for when objects are in use, or are normally non-movable objects. Is known to cause issues with game elements, routing, hidden object generation and manipulation, etc. Note that using this cheat allows you to delete objects that normally cannot be deleted, such as Sims, the mailbox, and the garbage can. If you delete these objects, there is no way to get them back, so be careful!

boolprop snapobjectstogrid false  /true

You can place objects outside the grid. This is very very usefull and I´m using it very often.
