Welcome to the archive for DJS Sims! The site has been restored to how it appeared in 2008 (yikes) after I recently discovered the files all still existed, and all content is being provided for those who still play the Sims 1, 2 or 3. Please note that no support is being given for anything, but everything should still work. Enjoy! (Wondering where jfade is now? Check out jfade.com for his latest exploits.)

  • Mac UnPac Version 1.0





    Creator: jfade
    Date: January 22, 2008
    Description:
    Introducing Mac UnPac, my first Sims 2 Program written in Java! This is designed specifically for Mac users but can also be used by Windows users. Instructions for that are below. Mac UnPac is simple, but has the following features:

  • See What You're Installing: View the name, size, and custom content type of each package contained within the Sims2Pack before you install it!
  • Remove Unwanted Packages: Remove any items from the Sims2Pack file before you install it, thus saving time and preventing every random object in the world from entering your downloads folder.

    System Requirements:
    A Mac or Windows PC with Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 or higher installed.

    Installation Information:
    - Mac Users: Extract the MacUnpac.app file from the zip, and use like any normal .app program.
    - Windows Users: Download the Windows version of the program, and extract the files to any directory. Double click the Sims2PackMac.jar file to start the program.

    Version Information, Help, and Download Links:
    Current Version: 1.0

    Creator: jfade
    Date: April 15, 2008
    Description:
    The Sims 2 Wardrobe Wrangler will help you to do all of the following:

  • Keep Organized: Manage all your custom CAS related content items, edit them into proper categories, change tool tips, set proper color bins, and sort through your files quickly and easily!
  • Advanced Functions: Townify, set shoe sounds, and do other things that you would otherwise need a knowledge of a more advanced tool to do.
  • Orphan Scanner: Scan for orphan meshes or textures.
  • Edit Genetics: Change genetic properties such as genetic power of skin tones, dominance of eye colors, and more.
  • And so much more!

    Installation Information:

    - If you download the installer: extract the EXE file from the zip and run it. It will place all the program files in their proper places, and create a shortcut for you. The manual is included.
    - If you download the "no installer" version: extract the zip and it's contents into the folder of your choice, and then launch the "WardrobeWrangler.exe" file to start the program.

    Version Information and Download Links:

    Current Version: 1.1
    Copyright 2008 DJS Sims and the Sims Programming Group

    Changelog:
    Changes Since Version 1.0:
    New Features:
    • "Clear Deleted Items" Button added to Advanced panel
    • "Copy To All" button added for Accessory bins. (Requested by millahnna)
    • New Tray Icon. Anytime the program gets marked as "Busy", the main window will disappear and the icon will appear in the tray. You can then mouseover it to see what it's currently working on. This helps prevent hanging for people with enormous amounts of downloads.
    • New menu bar at the top of the program.
    • Minimize to tray option added to Menu Bar.
    • EXPERIMENTAL: Batch Townify Option added to Menu Bar. (DO NOT PERFORM THIS WITHOUT GOOD BACKUPS.) (Requested by SealJuice)
    • New option to send all items in the file list to the deletion queue added to Menu Bar. (Requested by witch)
    • Copy To All button added for category, gender, and shoe flags under the basic properties tab. (Requested by wandersfar)
    • Free Time Mesh Information added.
    Bug Fixes:
    • Files that are in use by another program will no longer cause program to throw an error. It will instead quietly remove them from the list.
    • "Suggested Alternate Bin List" now properly stores changes you make with it to the CPF.
    • YA clothing should now be properly Townified. (Reported by janey845, anaidrabbit, and Gwillewyn)
    • A few bugs in the Mass Move function squashed. (Reported by witch)
    • The labels on the filters now reset between folder loads. (Reported by witch)
    • Items that are just tops or just bottoms will now only be able to be set as everyday clothing. (Reported by witch)
    • Fixed some bugs relating to skintone genetics. (Reported by omgoblin)
    • Fixed some bugs relating to upgrading accessories to BV jewelery. (Reported by atreya)
    • Fixed the duplicate file move bug in the Orphan Scanner (Reported by Wynter)
    Behaviour Tweaks:
    • "Townify" button will no longer be disabled if an item has already been townified allowing you to fix the items you've already townified that were townified improperly causing the clothes to be unavailable to YAs. Instead, the text will simply change to "Already Townfied" if it detects that you've previously townified the item.
    • Filtering content will now make use of the new tray icon.
    • Items that are just tops or just bottoms will be labeled as such under "Content Type" at the top of the Basic Properties tab.

  • Sims 2 Collection Creator - Version 2: Electric Boogaloo!





    Creator: jfade
    Date: December 31, 2007
    Description:
    The Sims 2 Collection Creator will help you to do all of the following:

  • Keep Organized: Create a collection and choose a name and icon for it, then add the objects of your choice.
  • Sorting Abilities: Choose the order that the objects will appear in your collection.
  • Add Objects to Collections: View the name, description, and picture of the object before you add the object to the collection.
  • Edit Existing Collections: Change collection files that you've recently made, or edit the existing collections that Maxis includes.
  • Built in Back Up: Your existing collection files will be saved in a backup folder in the program's directory.
  • Batch Add Function: Add all the package files within a given folder and it's subfolders to a collection file.
  • Sort Your Collections: The program can automatically sort your collections so they show up in alphabetical order in the game
  • Object Name Remembering: The program will now remember the names of any custom objects you add to a collection and will display them if you edit that collection in the future. (The program also already knows all the Maxis object names up through Seasons.)

    Please Note: This version of the program does not currently allow you to add walls or floors to the collection files it makes. However, you can add walls and floors to the collections you've creating while you're in the game. From there, you can continue to edit the collections with the program, and it will preserve the wall and floor information.

    Installation Information:

    - If you download the installer: extract the EXE file from the zip and run it. It will place all the program files in their proper places, and create a shortcut for you.
    - If you download the "no installer" version: extract the zip and it's contents into the folder of your choice, and then launch the "Sims2CollectionMaker.exe" file to start the program.
