Report Issues

I test my items thoroughly before release, but unfortunately some bugs might (and do 😳 ) still slip through the cracks. So if you find a problem with any of my downloads, I’d be super grateful if you’d report it to me, either by leaving a comment on the item’s download page or by using the form below, whichever you prefer.

I promise you you’re not bothering me or inconveniencing me or wasting my time or anything like that – on the contrary, you’re doing me a big favour! I want my creations to be the best they can be, so I want to know about any issues so I can fix them. I’m not telepathic, though, so if you just tell Random Person at MTS Random Forum that “Nix’s [item] doesn’t work!!” there’s a good chance I’ll never know (and thus won’t be able to fix it for you and others), not unless someone points me to the post or I stumble across it by myself – and there’s guarantee either will happen. 😦

So help me out a little? Pretty please with sugar on top? And a cherry? ❤

Please Check This First:

  • Did you put the item in your Downloads folder?
    (If not, then please do and check the item in game again. The game only reads items in your Downloads folder, not on your desktop. 🙂 )

  • Did you unzip it?
    (If not, then please do and check the item in game again. The game can’t read zipped files.)

  • Did you install the item while your game was running?
    (If yes, then please close your game, restart it and check the item again. The game only loads your Downloads folder at startup, not continuously, so any items you add while the game is running won’t show up until you restart.)

  • Did you follow the installation instructions (if any)?
    (Most of my items don’t have any special installation instructions, but there are a some – you’ll find the instructions in a text file in the download zip file in that case. Please check one more time that you’ve put everything where it’s supposed to go; things like CEPs won’t work properly if they aren’t installed correctly.)

  • Do you have the required expansion packs installed?
    (If you don’t, you might experience anything from jump bugs to crashes. In that case, you can’t use this particular item in your game – sorry!)

  • Are you playing The Sims 2?
    (My items are for TS2 only and they will NOT work with TS3 or TS4. If you get an error message saying the file is corrupted, it means you’re trying to use them with the wrong game. I don’t play TS3 or TS4 myself, so I can’t convert my items for you (and I’m leery of allowing conversions by people I don’t know) – sorry!)

If you’ve checked all this and still are having problems, then the form below is what you want. ⭐

Your bug report doesn’t have to be technical in any way, but the more detail you can give me, the better. (“It doesn’t work” doesn’t really tell me anything; “I can’t click it” is a little better, because then at least I have a starting point; “I can place it but I don’t get any menu options when I click on it, and I have [these EPs] installed” is brilliant; turn on testing cheats and give me the error log and I’ll love you forever. 😀 )

Your name and email are optional, but just in case I need to ask you any follow-up questions about the problem it would be great if you could at least fill in your email address. If you aren’t comfortable with that, though, then by all means leave it empty – to me, it’s much, much better to get an anonymous report than not to get a report at all.
