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

It lets me pick between the three neighborhoods, but then no Sims show up in Sim browser. Am I missing something? :confused:

I haven't gotten my EP copy yet. I was refering to the EP Ready for your downloads. The fixer I guess I can call it. I think the snow storm here has slowed my delivery of University hopefully tomorrow UPS will finally deliver it. I will post here if I have problems with SimPE as you have or if it is working okay. I should have been more clear in my earlier post, sorry for the confusion.

The newest SimPE is .25 you need to go to Quaxi web site and download it.

Okay, .25 works well. I did notice that college sims become adult sims instead. The exception is college freshmen. I had one who was undeclared and she stayed the same. I don't have any other freshmen, so I couldn't check to see if it was across the board.

Hope this helps. Otherwise it is working beautifully.

I have a problem with the latest version (.25). I'm trying to do some recolors, and a few of them are hanging and giving empty package files. They hang when loading the new texture selection. The window opens, but it's empty, and I can't hit the OK button. If I close it with the X, then the package file is empty.

Both of the things required the CEP to make recolors for them. I have v1.3 of CEP, and I don't know if there is a later version... or where to get it if there is.

For now I'm just using an earlier version for the files that won't work with the later one.

I need serious help! I cant use SimPE although I use it with the .net 1.1.. it wont work!
#307 Old 9th Mar 2005 at 6:36 PM
I'm having a problem with version 0.27 of the SimPE program. I've used other versions of the program to change the memories of some of my sims, but v0.27 won't work for me! I have .net 1.1 and directx 9.0c on my pc, but every time i try to load my neighborhood memory for my sims the program just says "please wait" I've let the program run for over an hour and nothing happens.

The same thing happens for when I try to make my recolored objects EP ready. I'll only select those items that were recolored and click "make EP ready" but all that comes up is "please wait" again, i've tried this for only one file and it won't work, i've let it run for over an hour and nothing.

what am i doing wrong? is it possible that it's the new version 0.27? is there somewhere i can download an older version?

I have 0.28 and I'm getting the "please wait" thing. It did it for three hours before I had to hit control alt & delete to close it and it said not responding. The same thing when I went to the neighborhood browser. I have University, so I can't go to an older version, can I?
#309 Old 11th Mar 2005 at 3:30 AM
i couldn't wait 3 hours, i got tired of waiting after 30 minutes but too used control+alt+delete to close it after a hour waiting.

i also have university, is that a factor? i too wonder if an older version of SimPE would work with university. Quaxi, if anybody would know it's you.

I have the same Problem, even with 0.27. My Solution:
Disable in Extras / Options the "Waiting Screen" option, in my German Version "Wartebildschirm".

The only versions of .net framework I can seem to get to install are the latest 1.0 and the 2.0 beta. I cannot seem to install 1.1 again for some reason. It worked before on my older XP install but now it gives me errors. The latest sims pe doesn't work well with the 2.0 beta... :-/

If anyone else has the problem and uses an extractor like WinZIP or WinRAR just extract it to a temp folder and run the install.exe. I had a dream about it last night! lol

I'm trying to get the latest version of SimPE (haven't updated since version 0.14.1843.2297) but isn't working so I can't find out if the version listed in this thread (v.027) is the most up to date. Is v.027 the most recent version of SimPE?
