Hello and welcome, new and returning Sims 2 players. My name is Scribal_Goddess, but you can call me Scribbles, and I’ve been playing The Sims 2 regularly for over a decade. In my time, I have fried at least five neighborhoods, and accumulated a lot of knowledge about how to prevent that from happening, which I realize a lot of you might not have after the death of many sims 2 communities. There have been a lot of threads I’ve seen just lately where people have inadvertently destroyed their hard work, so buckle in and I’ll teach you about avoiding corruption. I have personally playtested all mods mentioned as potential tools, in some cases for over five years.
A more technical rundown can be found here
, but I'll try to explain things in simple terms that will hopefully be more useful in understanding the hows and whys of corruption and game files. Initially, I have three lessons for you, but watch this space in case I see the need for more.
