Skins

Okay, I have downloaded millions of skins.
From hair, to clothes, to actual skin tones.
But, for some reason they won't come up in the game.
All the furniture I've downloaded has come up but none of the clothes or hair.
Please, help me!

Ok, I think you need to go to the body shop. It should be where your sims 2 is downloaded onto your game. From there you should be able to get those things you downloaded into the game.

What folder did you download them to? It should be "Your documents-EA Games-Sims 2-Downloads." You have to put them in the "downloads" folder under EA games-The Sims 2.
If you did that right but they still aren't coming up than you probably didn't download the meshes for the items. Meshes are like the skeletons for the Sims skins/furniture/etc.. In order for the skin to keep it's shape, it needs a skeleton to structure it. The meshes provide structure for the skins. Without it, the skins won't work and will become "orphans" in your download folder. Some download items come with the meshes already provided, some use a mesh that's already installed in your Sims 2 game but others will tell you "need to download the mesh" and you'll probably have to click around a couple of links to find it. Or what really sucks is when you have to go to a pay site link and pay a "donation" in order to download the mesh. I don't pay for anything to download so I just move on.

First, make sure you downloaded all the right files and meshes for the expansion pack you are using.

Go to My Documents
EA Games
Downloads
Locate all the files with that little blue icon (resembles the body shop icon)
Click on it.
Wait for a box to pop up,
It will ask if you wish to install the custom item.
Click yes to approve.

That should do it.
