Hi everyone! I've been playing the Sims 1 ever it came out and have recently have been on a downloading frenzy after having not thought about downloading for years. Sad to see so many old sites gone, and sadder to see SimFreaks giving me malware messages just as I was planning to rob it of all its freebies. I've never been on CTO Sims and am dying to get a chance. In the meantime I've been running around trying to find as many sites to nab things from as I can and have found my way here. I'm afraid I've missed out on a lot, but I'm thrilled to see sites still active and such a big big community devoted to this awesome game!

I've been especially collecting TSO stuff. I never played the game and had no idea there was some cool official stuff I never saw. My collection remains patchy but I'm happy to have the Afghan and St Bernard thanks to this site.

If anyone has the Jack Russell from TSO I would LOVE to have it.
I will probably share some pet skins I made in the past at some point, and I intend to make some more now that I have dived back in. I'm particularly interested in dog breeds, so if anyone has any unique meshes+skins to share I'd love to have those too (I saw a Cocker Spaniel somewhere in a post that I wish I had).

Nice to meet you all!

Welcome to the site and nice to meet you! smile I'm new here too.

I actually just went on a downloading frenzy and got all the stuff I liked on SimFreaks last year. I was surprised to see it down when I checked their site last week. I don't have everything, but I have a decent sized folder and it's pretty organized with some pictures and stuff. I have it backed up on my google drive account so if you're interested I'd be happy to share a link.

It's always disconcerting to see entire Sim sites just... vanish the next day. All that hard work an artistry, just gone. It's especially shocking when the site looked good and well kept. Gave you the feeling it will last as an institution, but nope. Just... gone the next week.

I think I started collecting when The Maxx / The Isz was taken down just temporarily in 2009. Those guys had gorgeous skins. It went back on-line a few weeks later, but by that time I knew the community wouldn't last.

After Night Time Sims went down, together with SIMpy Elau, I was happy I had trawled through the web to save what I could.


I forgot about Google Drive. That's 15 gigs! What do you need to share the link? Simply a google account? And can you share with strangers, or do you need their e-mail?

I agree, really sad to see sites get taken down so easily, they just suddenly vanish. I try to get everything I can and back stuff up now because you never know what you're going to end up losing!

Sorry if I took awhile to respond, I was out of town! If you haven't found out already, yes all you need is a google account. When you set it up, you can use Google Chrome to upload entire folders and sub-folders, and then you can just edit how you want the folder to be shared - you can set it so other people can edit the files or just so that anyone with the link can view/download.

Here's what I have:

I don't have anything put into .rar folders though, so make sure when you download them you choose to save them to the folder you want. I tried to save pictures too, but I don't always download every item in the set. Hopefully you can find some things you want! biggrin

This is awesome! Thanks! There were quite a few things I wanted. I remember now I used to have the Tuscan kitchen in my old game, so that's a good one.

The only problem I found is the skill camera. I couldn't download the extra files. It just showed the file names but no way to download them. It was same for the swings, but I think I might have those.

Thanks again!

Sorry about that, that's so confusing! I checked it out and couldn't figure it out myself, but after messing around with it for a few minutes I finally got it. If you click on it (putinskinsfolder.zip) and move your mouse around, a black bar appears at the top of the browser and there's a little download button, that will allow you to download the zip folder. I took a screenshot too since it's kind of hard to find:



Hopefully that solves the problem! smile

Lol I don't know why they don't make it bigger, it's really difficult to notice!

Of course! biggrin SimFreaks was easily one of my favorite sites, sad to see it gone after so long but happy to share what I was lucky enough to get!

Yeah, I'm really sad to see it's gone, especially since it doesn't seem to have any yahoo groups dedicated to "saving" it. Thank goodness you were able to save a bunch of it though!
