Description:
When I first played The Sims 3, I felt a bit un-ease at first. I had played the Sims 2 for such a long time that i found the new TS3 style a little disappointing. I liked TS2 UI and more than other, it took a month to get me familiar with all the new icons (especially the relationship icons) so I finally found the time to make something I really wanted (and hope you wanted it too). Let's bring TS2 relationship icons back!

Note that ONLY relationship icons have been changed, and due to the fact that this mod only alters a bunch of PNGs, compatibility issues are merely NON EXISTANT (well, as long as you do not alter those relationships icons for yourself).

Due to the nature of those icons, some of them might be tiny in the Relationship panel, but will be big enough on all other pop-up panels (like when you select to explore the mausoleum with other sims)



Installation:
Put the package in the usual location: "Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Mods/Packages"

THIS MOD SHOULD BE WORKING WITH ANY EP/SP/PATCH LEVEL

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Oh, thank you; these are better.

I started playing in the days of Sims 1, and I still miss having a big deal made out of the fact that You Made A Friend, with a big smiling face hanging in the air over the two of you.

I never even owned a Sims 2, but I played my friend's all the time, and I think I agree I think these symbols are cuter. :3

Lovely! I missed the old icons and I still can't seem to get used to the new ones, At times being mostly the same color most of them look the same.

This is no tuning mod and such it should be compatible with any release/patch.
