Ok this needs a bit of explaining. So I was recently thinking I could start building some starter homes to add to the site, plus I love building homes in the Sims 2 and I wanted to keep them base game compatible. So I have two options here; Just use the anygamestarter and build a home with just the basegame available or launch my main game and only use base game materials.
The problem arises with the way that each EP changes the way the Sims2packs are created when they are exported so I'm thinking that even if I somehow managed to use only basegame build mode materials someone with only the BG installed wouldn't be able to read the file seeing how it came from an M&G game.
The other issue I have is I want to keep the costs down and I know that the lot info tool came in one of the expansions so if I used the anygamestarter method I wouldn't have that tool at my disposal.
So I ask this, is there a way to make a Sims2Pack created with newer games compatible with just the Base Game?
