Why The Sims Needs External Editing Programs

The Maxis game The Sims lacks many in-game customization features. Players of The Sims want a fully customizable virtual world that the current game simply does not provide. The sims programs on this web site provide the player with the ability to make many modifications to both the sims themselves and to the many object downloads available on the web.

Many of these sims programs have evolved over time. When there was an identifiable need in The Sims for some type of modification I created a program in response.

SimWardrobe is a perfect example of such a program. After a player has collected many cool skins for The Sims it becomes very tedious to find and use these skins in the game. The game forces you to scroll through every skin one at a time until you eventually find the one you want. With SimWardrobe you can simply select the body (mesh) that you want to use and then pick the skin to use on it.

When Hot Date first came out there was no way to use any user made content downtown. Maxis eventually release a program for The Sims that did allow such categorization. Many users found the program severely lacking. More specifically, it was very hard to find the object that you wanted to modify. My categorizing program, SimCategorizer, remains the most popular sims program of this type.

The game does not provide any way to alter a sims head or first name. In response to many requests, I created the program SimMetamorphoser to alter a sims head, first name, gender and skin tone. This sims program has help many players overcome the "ugly sim kid" syndrome.

Replacing the NPCs within the game used to be an arduous process of extracting the NPC's IFF file and then editing the string segment of the file to use the new mesh and skin files. The NPC Replacer is a sims program that will extract the NPCs for every expansion pack and allows you to change the NPCs skins to any skins that you have in the game. This proved extremely popular with people who play themed neighborhoods and desired matching NPCs in their game.

While it is certainly possible to play The Sims without any of these programs, I feel that the total game experience can be greatly enhanced with their use.
