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

Why do people type in a url with some random spelling and then be surprised when it doesn't work?

We're on version 33 and it can be downloaded from

Does this have the ability to possibly change default nude skins?

I've had problems getting to grips with SimPE (it always takes me a while to grasp new things these days) but now I'm beginning to understand it, I find it excellent. I have just one question, though - I've used it to make all my downloads ep ready, and I get two files instead of one, one with the extension .bak, which is smaller than the other file. Do I need both files in my game, or should I remove one of them?

If you don't feel you're getting the hang of posting in these forums, an alternate is to go to the SimPE forums at where Quaxi himself can answer your questions.

I think he prefers people to post there anyway, as it saves him time and lets him know how his users are getting on.

Is this the wrong place to request the option to add to SimPE an option to change if an objects will be visible in different kinds of lots such as resident, community etc?

Quaxi has his own forums at so you'd be more likely to get the definitive answer there.

As Inge has pointed out, Quaxi has opened up his own SimPE help forums. We also have our own SimPE Help & Support forums that you can find here:

Quaxi does visit it often, so if you have a question, search that forum before creating a new thread. It's better that we keep all SimPE related questions in one central location.

As of this post, the current version is 0.35b. It is constantly updated and you can always find the latest version on Quaxi's site:
