Well, I finally managed to download the file, but now I am not really sure what to do with them...I only want to change the names of the townies, the wizards and the vacation people...but in which folder I have to put this data to archive that? And wont this change the house usw too?

The file that 17mars has offered in the first post in this thread is a complete new Town (sometimes called a hood), with all the away lot characters named for minor Harry Potter characters. It's ready for you to add the major characters yourself.

It's a UserData file (which is what the game calls the files that make up a whole hood), so that's why it's so large.

If you have an existing town/User Data file (e.g. User Data6) that you want to modify, you can't use 17mars's offering to do that directly.

If you want to rename the Townies, Stranges, and Vacationers in a Town/User Data file you already have on the go, you have to rename each of the 90 sims individually, since the game has already 'populated' the Town with away lot sims using the Maxis lists to generate names.

However, you can use the file you've downloaded. Rename it to User Data9 or User Data15, or or any other number up to 99 that you don't already have in your game. Place the renamed downloaded User Data file in your game.

Now go to the Export folder in the User Data file which is your existing Potter Town, and copy the FAM file of each family you want to be able to keep playing to User Data/Import. Don't delete your old Town until you're sure you've got the new one the way you want it.

Then open the game at the Town (hood/User Data 9, whatever) you renamed the file from 17mars's zip. Go the the Create-a-family screen, and Import each of the families you have been playing.

Your families, along with their houses, will appear in your new hood. Their careers, family relationships, etc. will be intact. Their friendships with sims in other families and away lots will have to be rebuilt.

It sounds very complicated, but the whole procedure takes about 15 minutes, once you've checked all the steps out ahead of time.

Have fun! smile

Thanks for the help...(although I am not sure that I have really understand it...I mean, how do I know which of the files in the order are for townies, which are for vacationers etc?)

question: Since I have begun to redo the whole game just a week or so ago, I haven't actually begun to create standart families (safe for Fleur and Bill, but it's not a hardship to do those two again). My neighborhoods are actually empty at the moment. So what would happen if I simply replace all the folders in the game with this one? Would I have the same set of Harry Potter Townies, Vacacioners, Celebrities in all neighborhoods?

You would but I'm not sure you'd really want that. All my file is is a new neighborhood where I changed the Townie names to Harry Potter secondary character names. It's not special beyond that.
