SimPE is a simple Package Editor you can use to Extract/Create/Edit .package Files.

*Changed in v0.14d: Object Workshop will now gather the correct textures for an object even if those textures are "borrowed" from another object. Solves the problem of creating an empty package for "Create Color Extension Package" for some objects. (RG)

* Changed in v.027: SimPE is almost ready for University since 0.27. Please check the SimPE homepage for more recent Update! You can still use SimPE if you do not have the EP installed! SimPE features a very easy way to create your own Recolors with the "Wizards of SimPE" Application included in this Download.

It also has plugins for:
+ Sim Skills/Characters, Relations
+ Family Members, Family Ties
+ Sim Memories
+ Text Resources
+ ObjectData, ObjectFunctions
+ Neighborhood and Sim Browser

But SimPE is still an alpha Software, so don't forget to create your own backups (even though SimPE has a builtin backup Feature now).

If you don't know how to handle rar Files, you can alos download a self extraction Version of the SimPE on the SimPE Homepage at

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

There are frequent Updates to SimPe, please visit to get the latest Version.

You need WinRAR to extract the rar File

@all having Problems to start SimPe:
you need .NET 1.1 installed in order to run SimPe!!

I just update SimPE to v 0.12. I was following the energypc tutorial on your SimPE web site but I have run into a problem. I am able to do all of the tutorial until I get to the part about changing the Pie Menu Functions. When I choose Pie Menu Functions I get a screen that says "Interaction Table Function Editor" I can add & change things but I can not locate commit. So, no matter what I do I can't get the new pie menu function to work - it just never shows up. Is the commit hidden somewhere - I am just blind in missing it?


ps - this "Interaction Table Function Editor" is labeled differently that what is showing in the tutorial, although I suspect it's just because of the update. In any event, please, can you tell me where the commit is?

Anywhere you want. Just create a Folder called SimPE somewhere and extract it there.

What Screen Resolution do you have? The Commit Button should be in the lower right Corner of the Plugin View.

Thanks Quaxi

I was using 800 x 600 but when i change it to 1024 x 768 I can now see the Commit button. Thank you! Sorry - I should have thought about that before I wrote - I did click the scroll bar but it doesn't go down far enough to make the Commit button visible in 800 x 600

Is it possible to add a function to max all of a given sim's relationships? This would be GREAT for those sims with, like, 80 known sims! Thanks!

Ok I got SimPE yesterday and I started experimenting with it. I had never used it before and i was scared I was ognna mess up my game but I backed up my files anywaysssss the reason why i am writting this is because I revived all these people right? but when I teleport them I can only have just a few that WILL ACTUALLY appear and be played with. I asked Gunther Goth to move in and before he did a box popped up asking me who else would move in with Gunther and the box of every NPC and Townie popped up I asked for Michael Bachelor. Darlee Dreamer, and some other Goth family people, and they all moved in except they wouldn't show only Gunther and Victor Goth showed. I removed all the "I am dead" tokens and everything but I also noticed that there are multiple copies of some people like Darleen Dreamer and Michael Bachelor (2 look the same and one look a bit different with a black shirt) Any idea of what's going on????

I don't understand how to make it work. I didn't have a download-folder, but it said on a site that you just create a new folder and so in the 'thesims2'folder. so I just extracted it to like all folders in 'thesims2'folders =P... but I don't know how to make it work or if it even works.

I had to do a security upgrade to the Framework 1.1 for it to work.

Am I missing something here? I have the latest version of SimPe, and I still do not see what was shown in the screen shot where the memories are! Is there anyway to add new memories? because I don't have this option :/ *Gets confused*

It's not a complaint, it's actual curiosity: Why is .NET Framework that important? Does it improve the SimPE in any way?
#68 Old 11th Dec 2004 at 8:12 PM
:confused: I downloaded SimPe, and when I try to unzip it, a box pops up and says:
The WinZIP Wizard cannot open this file; it does not appear to be a valid archive. If you downloaded this file, try downloading it again. If you want to add the file to an archive, first create or open the archive, then drop the file again.

Another thing... After i download it and click open file, it opens with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Can someone please help me?

Please look through the Tools and Tutorial Forums, there are plenty Instructions how to fulfill several Tasks

.NET is basically a set of libraries used by SimPE, without .NET SimPE won't run. I choose c# to develop SimPe, because I like the c# concept AND more important you can get a totally free development Environment for the Framework.

@xxstxphxx: WinZIP can't handle .rar Files, you need the WinRAR trial or any free decompression Program that can handle rar Files.

Maybe you can answer this question..I purchase Sim Enhancer, used it loved it. download and installed SimPE 10. used it loved. Now Sim Ehnancer will not work ... it will not accept any saves. Could the SimPE have scuttled SimEnhancer? Tabby'sGranHag

Okay, dumb question.... I have a sim whose original custom skin was deleted, making her skin revert to the default flesh tone. Will this program make it possible to alter her skin and import a new skin texture for her?

No, there are a lot People that have both Programs installed and they don interfer with each other!

The Sim Surgery Plugin can do this

Pleas make sure that the Paths in "Extra->Option" point to the correct Location.
