I don't know of any. You can download complete sims and then use the
create a sim function to make them into families.

Can I ask? Why do you want to download a ready-made family?

Are you looking for certain characteristics? Mummy, daddy and apple-pie
normal, for instance?
Raving loony tribe?.
Or just your normal, every-day family of psychopaths?

You can have my Simsons. I am fed up with them. 8(

Actually I like making families, but my cousin is being
a lazy bugger (IMHO)heh.. and wanted to d/l families
like the original site used to have. But you just gave me
a great idea, she can have some of my wackos!!!
Thanks for the help!

I don't think you can do that in Sims 2.

Well, if you create a family, establish personalities,
aspirations and relationships, then move them onto a small empty
lot, I don't know why you couldn't just package the lot with the
family on it and upload them that way. But they won't have
relationships with others in the neighborhood, so they won't be
like playing one of the Maxis neighborhoods or anything like
that. Sounds pretty lazy to me. LOL

Yes, what I meant was I don't think you can just DL a family of sims, I
think they have to be on a lot. You can do individual sims, of course.

Oh, I don;t know. It has possibilities if one was in a group. I mean, a
group of people could load up the same families.. I think we have discussed
this before, haven't we?

Then you could download a family as a surprise? I think we all tune our Sims
to a certain extent, you have to to get out of the sim-maker, for a start.
So we are controlling how a household would react. But to download a whole
family from scratch would be more like real life. You never know who is
moving in to the empty house down the road. Could be anyone...
Prince Charming and Cinderella or a house filled with crazy bikers. What
about four fun-loving practical jokers with a nasty streak? Whatever, they
couldn;t be worse than Maxis family of Grunts. 8(((

I feel sorry for Ripp. And that poor little boy only wants
approval, you know that. The most fun I ever had with them was
turning their barracks home into a fluffy pink Victorian when the
General married what's her name....

I always find it fascinating to read what is happening to the
Maxis families in other people's games. I myself have started
Pleasantville and Strangetown over several times, just to see
what happens this time. Odd that I've never played Veronaville.
Have you?

Oh yes! <wide eyes>
It lasted for about ten minutes beofre I decided I hated the people and the
houses in about equal proportion.
I nuked the place.

The neighbourhood map is handy though. It's a real little slum area with
narrow plots on one side of the canal and wide spaces on the other.
I have run that map a couple of times.

Bah, I have cut too much. I tried to work on that Ripp a couple of times but
could not get to like him. It was the wide-eyed look of 'who, me?' that
drove me crackers - and drove him into having the most /terrible/ problems
at puberty - poor lad.
last seen hanging out round the back of the shopping mall with girls of
'that type'.

Me - Nooooo. I've never played any of the Maxis neighbourhoods except
Strangetown at the beginning. I tend to go for vast dynastic soaps. I
think I must be a bit odd that way.

I haven't done any of the Maxis neighborhoods. I just went straight to
my own town.

It is a joy that there is no wrong way to play the game!

Lawyer..... I say, from an American perspective, what's the most persistent,
annoying sort of person you can meet?

it's Guardian readers, no?

Ho! Bash-a-granny day, is it?

Oh, the condescending smuggery of the 'I know what's best for you' attitude
is pretty annoying but I don;t find it scary - well, not yet, anyway. I dare
say there are rabid Gruniads out in the wild who could send me running away
shivering in fear, but....

No, I used door-to-door-political canvassers but am not happy with it.
Football hooligan? Which would mean a different sort of football in the US.
Soccer hooligan?
Mancy fan? Wouldn't mean a thing. Skin-head, is out of date.

No. I want something that is easilly recognisable as a fright inducer.. I am
starting to wish I had never mentioned this.

Meet face to face? That's why I wondered about doostep salesment first
but... not scary enough.
I need something you would expect to be violent if pushed.

My little brother, perhaps? Monkey-boy, the president? Some days, when I
am grumpy, my sweetie? The noisy bint next door?

No, it would have to be the know-it-all who has no social graces. Who
insists that whatever you are doing, you are doing it wrong, tells you
what to do to properly do it, and then proceeds to tell you long boring
stories that you do not care at all to hear, usually concerning people
who have done it wrong and the horrible things that happen to them as a
result.

Lawyers and insurance salesmen and telemarketers are all sleazy
annoyances on principle.

Oh great - I loved the underwear where you have to take your jeans off so
your boyfriend/girlfriend can see the message that you are saving yourself
for marriage. And then the 10 plagues finger puppets....

Oh this is good - a 12" Jesus action doll:

http://www.shipoffools.com/Gadgets/Toys/142.html

Would someone in the US like to go after the manufacturers because it seems
you can remove Jesus's robes and it appears he has a Ken-like body
underneath. And we all know what that implies. Or better yet, perhaps
someone could send one to Jack Thompson. He'll know what to do.
