Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Great job! How did you get the girl to sit properly on the horse in the picture of her riding around the cones? I would love to do a horsey story with my horses, but I'm very limited since I can't get realistic riding pictures?
Your help would be appreciated!

Hey well I love this farm but when I tried to play a person on it, it crashed and wouldn't let me play on the lot. It may be too much for my computer but I'm going to try it again. If you have any idea to what is going on please help! Thanks!

Hi there... this lot looks beautiful but I also have the problem with it crashing and throwing me out of the game when I try to enter it, either by putting a Sim in it or in Buy/Build mode. I'm pretty sure it's not too much for my computer since I'm playing on a brand-new $4000 Alienware, lol... so I came back to see if maybe I needed a stuff pack or mesh or something and it appears I do not. Any ideas as to what the problem could be? I'd love to play this. Thank you!

For those that had a crashing problem:
My game also crashed until i downloaded and installed some of the custom content.
I believe it was the fence that I needed to have. I can now enter and play this lot
with no problem. Hopefully that is all you need to do as well.
Good Luck

Thanks for the farm! I really love your farm and would like to play it. I downloaded it, as well as the fence and barnset. I have the Nightlife EP, and Dragonslave's horses, as well as Beck's Rideable Horse download. I had a crash when I tried to play the lot. About half of the horses are flashing blue, while the others look okay (from the neighborhood view). The horses are fine on another lot. Is there a solution?

I think the rideable horse has something to do with the flashing horses, because mine now do the same thing. Sorry about the crashing problem, all I can say is download the stuff that I have listed in the additional credits.

Thanks for all the kind words ^.^

This is awesome! I love it! You must be a horse lover, huh? xD I adore horses, I'm a plain horse freak(and dog/cat/bird freak) and almost every other animal. I'm sure any horse lover would love this lot. Thanks!
