TL;DR – the sad tale of losing my Sims 2 custom hood to installing the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection on my PC. :(
I’ve been getting a little nostalgiac about my old neighbourhoods. I installed the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection from Origin and transfered over my old sims files from my laptop to my new PC. Unfortunately what I had not realized was that old saved games… including my custom neighbourhoods… would not run with the S2 Ultimate Collection. I spent all of last night and this morning trying to figure out the workarounds, but nothing is working. I opted not to put an optical disk drive on my PC, so I can’t even install my game from scratch disk by disk.
My back ups are still intact, but no way to play them. I guess all I have are a folder full of screenshots and an unfinished simstory.
