Recently, I've done a bunch of Sims 2 searches and Google often sends me to Boiling Oil's posts here on Leefish. Most recently, one of his posts led me to a mod I didn't know existed, gave me info to correctly install another mod that I wrongly placed in my downloads folder, and saved me from downloading a possibly conflicting mod from another site. Because I keep coming here, I thought it was only right to register and say "THANK YOU!" for this site, the info on it, and the knowledgeable people who take the time to post here.
I'm strictly a Sims 2 person. I build simple houses and vicariously live simple lives through my Sims. I know little to nothing about the inner workings of the game. While I've had my Double Deluxe and all the expansion packs since 2008, I've only recently learned how to change the character traits in SimPE. To keep my gaming interesting, I rely on the wonderful talent on this and a few other Sims sites and the generosity of those who post their content for the rest of us to enjoy. Without the mods and free CC, I certainly would not have kept playing Sims 2 all these years.
BTW, I have been pleasantly surprised to see that there are a few other Sims 2 fans in my 55+ age bracket. :-)
