Question and custom object issues

Archived from groups: alt.games.the-sims-2 (More info?)

Does an organizer exist, like they did for Sims 1, so I can look at what I
downloaded?

Some of the custom objects I have downloaded are not showing up in the
games. All are placed in My Documents/EA/Downloads, but could the fact that
I have Sims2 on my D drive and the Download folder in my C drive have
anything to do with it? As I might have mentioned, some downloads are
showing up, but others aren't. Do hair and makeup go into the Clothes
Download category? I have Uni and Sims 2, if that helps.

    Hair, makeup, skin tone, any genetics (all bodyshop type of stuff) go
    directly into downloads. Objects, walls, floors and terrainpaint can be in
    subfolders.
    For objects, do you have the colour enabler installed?

    mid-way down the next page).

    Yes, I do have CEP installed. Does having hair, skin tone or any genetics
    downloads hurt to have them in a sub folder I've called Clothes? I also
    have two sub folders: one for objects and one for clothes. Should I get
    rid of the sub folders?

    Well I have heard that anything bodyshop/create a sim related has to not be
    in a subfolder, otherwise it will not show up. Objects can be in
    subfolders.
    Oh and do you have the latest CEP...........a new one came out about a week
    ago.

    once you have downloaded on a spree and opened multiples of items how do you
    tell them apart? clothes, objects, genetics etc? is there a key that tells?
