I love the Sims Resource but can't afford to join the paid part, right now.
If I did couldn't buy the expansion packs. Also, am waiting to see what
future expansion packs will do to our downloads. The items that are free
are mostly recolors of meshes that you need a paid subscription to get. The
free houses are great, though.

I wish you all would fix those bad zips. I am a member and have gotten
quite a few. I
emailed support last Monday & still waiting, probably never will hear
from you all. Thank you.

I found some good hair recolors and other recolors of things already in
the game. I'm glad I flipped through most of it.

They've put out a few new meshes in objects, too. Some great doors,
veggies, and lights.

I'm not from TSR, was just passing along the message, but I understand
where you're coming from. Yesterday I couldn't get the pictures of the
free downloads (not subscribed at the moment) and I've emailed them on
several occasions about other things and never heard from them either.
At the moment still debating if I take a new six month subscription at
TSR or one at Well Dressed Sims (since they seem to have a lot of new
meshes).

LOL I'm sorry, I really didn't mean to come on that strong. Today, I
tried to
get the southwest dining set and the table was a bad zip so the entire
set is ruined.
For some reason, it said you had to have the table to make the set
work. ????
I emailed them again, who knows. I could go on about some more bad zips.
These
zips are for some of the best stuff, I could live without some of their
stuff but these things,
I really wanted and then to get a invalid zip just makes me sick.
I'll have to think hard about another 6 months subscription again. LOL

I suggest that you try leaving a comment for the creator of the set, if
they don't have comments turned off. Most of the creators check those
regularly and will contact you about your problem. Include your email
address in the comment and see what happens. It could be that you've
just had a corrupted download. I've downloaded literally thousands of
things from there and have never had a bad zip yet.

I haven't had any problem corrupt zips, yet. What I did notice was that
there are quite a lot of downloads that were/are also available on MTS2,
for free. I guess some artists test them there first before uploading
them to TSR, but it feels like a bit of a rip off, I did not pay for
downloads that I already downloaded for free on another website.

Thanks Jeanie. I noticed though that you can't comment until you
download. LOL
I finally got what I was after. I use Registry Mechanic and cleaned out
my registry, didn't
know if it would help or not but maybe it did cause I got the file.
I don't understand!
