Notes on official tools for The Sims[edit source]

1. Art Studio was never updated to support the catalog sub-categories which were added in Hot Date. Its output will appear in Decorative->All , but will not appear in the Paintings subcategory.

2. The Hot Date Object Organizer was not updated for later expansion packs. Use SimCategorizer from SimWardrobe and/or SimOrganizer from SimPrograms instead.

3. File Cop was not updated to handle changes Hot Date and later EPs made to the way "buyable" (formal, swimwear, pajamas, etc.) skins are handled. Use Skin Doctor from SimPrograms instead.

Sweet. I added your notes as references on the main page. Duskey(talk)(blog) 17:08, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the general rule for Sims 1 tools is that if a Maxis tool and a third-party tool do the same thing, the third party tool does it better. Dharden 17:48, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
