We have a large selection of downloads and programs available for the original The Sims game, which was released back in 2000!
These archives include object editors, patches, useful tools, and much more to enhance your experience!
Many of these tools were created in the early 2000s, when the primary operating systems in use were Windows 98/ME/XP. Therefore we can not guarantee that these will work as intended on modern operating systems or offer any support.
Whilst we have virus scanned all content, we take no responsibility for the content of downloads. Object & Skin Editors
These programs will allow you to create and edit objects, skins, and characters for The Sims.
Animation Alchemist is simply said a program that allows one to change the animations an object uses. You simply open the IFF file the object is stored in and select the STR# resource containing the animations (usually a2o and c2o). You select the animation item you want replaced and double-click the animation from the list. Alternatively, you can select the animation and click "Set".
