OK, I turned on the Q-X thingy.
What is it good for? Can you choose which folder you want to install a mod to? If not (if it uses MTS2 creator name / changed zip archive name for sorting stuff), it could be just reason of duplicating items in the game ;o).

Great job! I hate how long all those kids take doing homework, it takes way too long! Thanks for this.

Please do not re-upload my houses or Sims anywhere, even if it is just refurnished.


Thank you for your consideration.

Oh thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

I've been waiting and looking for this... I HATE homework. But I didn't want to eliminate it completely either cause it just wouldn't be as realistic without it at all.

This is perfect!

Zia took the pic of her Sim, I don't know where she got the stuff - it is unimportant in a mod pic.
BTW the MTS2 thumbnail server seems to be down at the moment - at least players won't be influenced by the pictures when downloading mods
