wants and fears
Are the icons not showing? Are the wants fears panel missing?
If it's the icons not showing, but wants/fears are going ok - the likelihood is that you've got something in game that is overriding the icons.
The way to test that is to open up a vanilla game and see if that has wants and fears ok.
(what I mean when I say a vanilla game)
If it shows up there - then it's overriding the icons texture, and you'll need to do a search to find the offending CC.
If it doesn't show up there - then the icons package in your game has corrupted.
You're probably going to be stuck doing a re-install of your game.
It's worth a try. You should ALWAYS back up your Neighborhood(s?) and Downloads folders anyway... Really, at this point, there's nothing to lose.
Rename - your "The Sims 2' folder under my documents and run the game - it will regenerate a new Pleasantview.
If you've put clean hoods into your program files games - then you'll need to restore them somehow.
