Hello and welcome to the Forum @xLanaDelRey,

Can you maybe try and give us a few more details about the stuff you are trying to install? Smile  For example, where did you download the files from? Are the files in the .package or .sims2pack file format? Do you maybe know what type of custom content these files are supposed to be (script mods, clothing, etc.) ?

Also note that it's generally recommended to download/install custom content only on a Sims 2 game that has all available expansions and stuffpacks installed; in case you did not do that yet, please in additional also install any "missing" DLC for your Sims 2 game.

Did you make sure to put the files under this location here?

The Sims 2 Install Custom Content Problem Screen25


If you get a popup in-game, please click on "Enable Custom Content":

The Sims 2 Install Custom Content Problem Screen10


Later on, in the game's option menu, please also tick the options here:

The Sims 2 Install Custom Content Problem Screen26


P.S. a lot of "custom content items" are in fact re-colored versions of existing EA/Maxis items. You also need to download the "Color Enabler Package", which is a third-party mod that enables these re-colors.

I tip my fedora.

I'm sorry, what exactly do you mean...?

We were installing .package file custom content, weren't we? Or are you talking about that "Color Enabler Mod" that I mentioned before? If yes, you need to register on that "modthesims"-website, and download the mod from there. Put it in the location, that I showed in the screenshot before.
