In talking with some folks, I have realized some are not sure how to actually download the custom content for the game. I think this tutorial will help you out. And since it's here, no one needs to know but you and I Okay, to start with you must put all your downloads in one place for them to show up in game. The pathway for this (where they belong) is this:
But I have a way to help you with this. First and foremost---here is Sims 2 RoboFileMaid 3000! It is really really simple to use!!! You get it here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=119585 To use, you simply have it on your desktop (when you install it it will put it there itself). When it's time to use, you grab the rar (or whatever file), drag it to the maids' yard (the file is a picture of a robot maid, with a yard behind her). When you drag it the filemaid will put it where it belongs automatically! Cool, huh?
Usually the downloads are set up as rar files (that is the file you grab up when downloading, not the jpg ones-those are just the pictures).

on this topic - i sometimes have trouble getting downloads to show up on a clean install - over time i have found a way which seems to do the job - PLEASE NOTE: this is only if you have a clean install and downloads wont work.
1st - load up the sims 2 and check that custom content is enabled - sounds obvious but some people dont know about this - the option is in the main options screen.
if now you still have no CC (restart the game just to be sure) you need to go to my docs - eagames - thesims2 and cut and paste 2 folders onto your desktop - the downloads one and the savedsims one. then run bodyshop
(for anyone who doesnt know where it is: )
go to your main install floder (mine is: my computer - c -programfiles - ea games - the sims 2) open the folder of your latest installed expansion pack: (the orderr is uni - nightlife - ofb - pets - seasons - bon voyage - freetime - apartment life) and go into the folder called csbin and you will find bodyshop.
run bodyshop until the main screen appears and then quit. go back into my doc - eagames - ts2 and you will see it has recreated both the saved sims and downloads folders - copy your content into the new downloads folder and start the game.
this has worked for me everytime so i hope it helps people.
theres no sense crying over every mistake you just keep on trying till you run out of cake (portal end credits)
