If you have bon voyage, you CANNOT use SimPE to edit characters or neighborhoods, not until the SimPE for bon voyage comes out. Perhaps that's the problem?

Thank you very much for this tutorial! Thanks to pure luck, I've got some great looking teens in my Pleasantview 'hood (who knew that Goth trademark nose would actually suit some?!) and have always wanted to just tinker with them.

EDIT : I found the problem. I had not unchecked "No Meta Informations." Was that in the tutorial? I seemed to have overlooked it and had to read the 2nd page of this thread I didn't delete this post because I was thinking if someone else seems to have this problem, reading my question/answer might help...

I'm not sure why... but my sim is showing up with the name "Unknown". I found him with the Family Information thing under the Resource Tree (the part on the left). I created him in game and moved him directly into a house, saved the game, and exited it. I then opened up SimPE and started to do the tutorial (I admit, I looked around a bit before continuing the tutorial, because the option of searching Neighborhood information really interested me and I wanted to see different options). When I came to the point of finding my sim is named "Unknown" I also realized that all the other sims are named "Unknown" but have their last names intact. I figured maybe I could still extract the Sim by following the second post in this thread but, when I opened the Sim Surgery option... there wasn't SINGLE sim to be found despite that fact that I was using Veronaville and I had never deleted any of the sims that came with that neighborhood. Actually, I had never played that neighborhood until I created this sim to try this tutorial. What had I done wrong to lose the information linked to names and such? Or, what did I do wrong period? (It might not have been name information that I lost, I guess is what I meant) Does this only work for sims that were actually BORN in the game? Thanks in advance for any help.

K, so I tried to extract my beautiful sim, LUNA WAYNE, that was born in game. I did everything by tutorial, but it doesn't work.
when I go to body shop, there's a sim with same clothes, makeup, hair like Luna, but with different face. She doesn't even have pointed ears like her.
I already cloned her in bodyshop, tried to extract her again but she still gets that other face.
Her face looks right in SimPE (in surgery too).

I was wondering what could go wrong and I think I should tell you that there are two Luna's in Sim Description. One of them is Luna like she looked when she was Young Adult. She doesn't appear is Surgery window. Is that usual?, because I noticed a few other Sims to be written twice. The "old" picture is on a blue background.

I really want to extract that sim, she's really beautiful and many people asked me to share her so.... please, help.

Just a thought for fellow Mac users, if you have PC-using simming friends; package up the entire house, family and all, and send it over to said friend. Said friend should, of course, not let a SINGLE sim in this household interact with anybody, or should place it in an empty neighborhood. Your PC friend can then extract the Sim for you, and you owe that friend dinner. lol.

It's a little dangerous, but it's what I'm trying.

I wanted to make Fatima Simovitch (Brandi Broke's grandma) but she doesn't appear in the sims pool in the sim surgery tool. How can you find sims that there are not in the sim pool?

I wanted to extract the Sim I made in CAS, because I seriously messed up the house she and her boyfriend was in. I followed all the above steps for both her and her boyfriend, then installed the Sims to my game with Clean Install, but neither of them are showing up in my game. I have tried enabling custom content several times and it has not work.

They both show up in SimPE and Body Shop. Just not in the game.

It appears none of the pictures are working for this tutorial. I have no problem as I have done this before, but for newbies this might be an issue.

I could do without the pics and did it the first time, but i know SimPE well.

But i have another question, some people already asked:

Is it possible to get the dead sims? Because they don´t show in the list.
That would be sad

Default Custom Content
I'm trying to use this to get rid of unused custom content from my downloads. I wanted to extract the sims I use, delete all other skins and genetics, then thought if I put them back that only their skin and genetics would be there. Not so, as others have said Makeup, eyes, etc, don't package with the sim.

How do we identify which makeup/genetics, etc belong to our sims in simpe? I am new to SimPE and hope someone can answer the question for all of us who have asked. It is the makeup and genetics that make the sim.
