Well, I'm getting ready to 'Restore' my Apartment Mailbox.  Per advise of Nef, I need to remove All of my CC's and start over.  groan  I am not looking forward to that chore.  I have so much that I've downloaded, but it has to be done.  Wish me Luck!

Dearest Doll, you have my prayers. You can do it. I know the agony of DL folders and how collecting CC is so addicting. *sigh*

i'am a cc addict too lol. BBdoll it is probably the only way to rid of that mail box it is just a pain. all i can do is advise you to make sub folders for everything in your sims 2 downloads folder, that way it will make it easier to find things you need to get rid of. also use the sims 2 clean installer to untick anything that comes up saying mailbox, just to be on the safe side this way it will save you so much hassle and you won't need to do it again. if you need help searching certain pieces of cc feel free to pm me and i will help you out any time hunni.

Thanks guys, but guess what?  Didn't take me long to discover 'which' mailbox was giving me the blues. It was the one that was the Mailbox Cover.

I removed it from my Download Folder and added my Downloads back.  Went in to check my Apartments and, "Whala!"  All of my apartment default boxes were there - Except for one apartment. sad    That's becuz I was doing some changes in it and I had not re-zoned back to my Apartmentbase.  Therefore, it did not bring back my apartment default mailbox.  lol1  

What I don't understand is, since I removed the Mailbox Cover from my downloads folder, why the MC is still showing up on some of my lots.  Is that okay?  I would think that if I had removed it then it would not show up.

So what I'm gonna do is just move the apartment from my bin and then remodel that one. You live and learn!


Oh, question???? What's the difference between Apartmentbase and Apartmentsublot?

Don't ever use sublot. It's not meant to be used. Apartmentbase makes a residential lot an apartment lot. Unfortunately, your lot is gone now... probably not recoverable.
That is from HystericalParoxysm

HI!  Nonni!  Thanks for the tip.  I will cross that one off of my list.  Yeah, I think my lot is gone, but thank God I had the original one in my bin.  I loaded that one and will make my changes to that one.  Laughing

Oh wow!  Guess what?  I tried replacing my old apartment with the one in my bin, which shows that it does have the default Mailboxes, but when I go into it, it is still the mailbox I want to remove.  Why is the other mailbox still there?

Dang!  I went into another  lot and my apartment MB is gone again.  Well, guess it didn't work.  the first time I went in and I saw the mailbox, now they are back.  Have to do some more research.  groan

Tell you what I would do. Package the lot that has the CC you are trying to get rid of. Go out of your game. Open the lot with CleanInstaller. Is the MB that you are trying to get rid of listed there? If so type the name of that MB into Search.


Then right click on package and find out where it is in your DL folder and delete it.


Now, someone else may have another solution that is easier, I hope so.

Good Luck!

hello2  guys!  Well, after working on this issue All nite and All day, I was able to get my Apartment Mail boxes back.  I was bout ready to pull out every strand of my hair.
 Whew!bangdesk onarant  seesaw groanunhappydance 

I had gotten down to at least (5) possibles, and then something strange happened.  The error wasn't showing up. It was like all was good.  I thought scratch  noooo way.  That can't be.  So I put all of the files back into my Downloads and dang nab it if the little bugger didn't show it's ugly face again.  buggout 

Well, I knew it was within the last (300) files, and we're talking about  (1,989) files. tongueout   I grabbed (222) files and moved up from the bottom of the file.  Looking good!  extrahappy  Got down to (10, 5, 3, 2 and Whala)

I found it.  goofigirl  I was Happy, Happy, Happyyyyy! Then my thrill was short lived. buggout  I put all of my files back in to my downloads folder and fired up my game, buttttt, there it was. Staring back at me nerd and laughing.  scaredy scaredy buggout scaredy scaredy  This can not be happening to me again!!!bangdesk bangdesk  So I removed the last (200) files, again, then got me some caffeine coffeeread   settled down for another go at it.  It wasn't to bad this time cuz I knew where it was - playing hide and seek, but I found them.  Yep, (5) more files kept bringing up that little mb that I did not want to see.  So I found a total of (6) files.  Replaced my good files to my downloads and all is well. takeoff 

Now, after all of my redec to my Apartment, I thought I would be able to see all of the furniture I changed when I moved my simmie in, but no luck.  Only thing that was there were my remade Bathroom and Kitchen.  I was able to change the closets to the ones that have the mirrors on the doors.  I changed all my walls and floors so at least that looks nice.  I changed the doors to something diff.

Does anyone know how we can add furniture to Apartments so they are not lost when Sims move in?  Is there a cheat for that?

Well, think I'm gonna rest now. I'm worn out from this two day ordeal.  Have a good nite my friends! tired

Awww, Nonni!  Just saw your note.  Thanks for taking the time to share the info.  I will keep this in case it happens again, or anything else like it.  Always appreciate good feedback!  tnx4sharing


This is what my files look like.   (dcd56fc8339797c43dbb581f8f832b50_0005)  I have no idea what they were for.  Don't understand the # thang with they download like this.  I have tons of these things.  Maybe I need to whiped out everything and start over clean.  lol1   I've got it working now, so I'm happy.
