Here's how to get custom content in the game. First, go into your mac's documents folder. There you will find a folder entitled "EA Games" inside that folder is "The Sims 2" in there you will find folders such as "Cameras", "Characters", and "Collections".(note: there will be no "" marks around the file, if there are, it's messed up!)

Look for a folder called "Downloads"(again, no ""'s) if it isn't there, make one ensuring that the word Downloads is with a capital "D" and a lower case "s" at the end. Place all your custom content there unless otherwise stated by the person who created the content.
