How do I transfer my sims to another computer? - wxrated - 08-03-2012 05:47 PM

Hi everybody!

Im really wondering how I can get my sims from my old computer into a new one. I also have many custom made sims i dont wanna lose, not even speaking about all their lives and housing and all that has been built. Does anybody know and could help me please???

Are you talking about the original Sims game? There should be save files in your old game for your various bits and pieces that you can copy and transfer to your new game, same as there is for Sims 2 and 3.

If you are still playing the first Sims, it is worth taking a note of the following website - http://www.thesimszone.co.uk/knowledge/index.php?Cat=1 - as it contains lots of information and tips about the original game that has been taken down from many other parts of the web as old fansites died.

Yes, the original one. I have now copied the UserData - all the folders, and GameData, and it looks like all my sims have their lives the way they are supposed to Clapping

Thank you also for the link. I will definitely have a use of it!
