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.

Quaxi, you're the greatest!
i've followed this one closely through it's stages (and experienced the previous baby bugs and such before newer versions were released) and have found it to be an indispenceable asset to my game... Wow things i can do with it! This is how gaming *should* be.
Many, many thanks to you and everyone else that has helped with it's testing.

I downloaded it and it was working perfectly then the next day i click on the icon and it says "application has generated an exception that could not be handled. Process id=0x1fac (8108),Thread id=0x1958(6488)"Then it says click ok to terminate the application and it says click cancel to debug the application.

Maybe some settings stored in the Regstry are corrupted. Try deleting the Key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Ambertation\SimPe". But rember, editing the Registry (especially if you don't know waht you are doing) can destroy your Windows Installation!!!

Please, just read the two comments above yours!!

Remember to make your own Backups!
#19 Old 21st Nov 2004 at 1:19 PM
hmmm i was trying to get it to save a .package file and it says the package file is being used and cant save, which its not, and some times it freezes up during saving.

You don't have the Game running while you were trying to edit the package, do you?
#21 Old 21st Nov 2004 at 7:51 PM
Doesn't work, got framework 1.1. Does it look for the game in the default folder?
#22 Old 21st Nov 2004 at 9:19 PM
it seems that this only happens when i try to edit objects.package. i can edit everything else and save it fine.

#23 Old 21st Nov 2004 at 11:29 PM
Do never save the object.package

If you want to change a Fil stored there extract the Files you need, create a new Package, import and edit them and save it to the download Folder.

Package files there will override the default ones.
