This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Hello one and all,

The Harry Potter Project is designed to bring the magic of the Potter books to life in your Sims 2 game. Witches and muggles alike will feel right at home with this big set. It's as close to a magic expansion as we're going to get.
In the following posts, you'll find characters, clothes, recolours and a brand new magical skill, complete with magic supplies.

Dumbledore's Army are Atavera, Avialle, Cinnamon, Echo,
Exnem, Jaxad0127, Lethe_s, LyricLee, Superfly and Tipoual

Our thanks to everyone who has helped this project along, including all original HP forum members, Numenor and especially Delphy and the staff.

Download info

- All downloads come with a readme file containing all necessary information. Please read those before asking questions. The downloads are also in rar archives to save on bandwith and serverspace.
Please do not ask for zips or single, grouped uploads. Just use Q-Xpress and click the little Q icon instead.
There's simply too much here to make different versions of archives Thank you.

- You will find the downloads in the first few posts of this thread.
Click on the link that says Click here to view all Comments / Feedback to open them.
and again
Downloads are in posts 2-13

- And just for good measure.
We will not be posting zip files.
Thank you.
Get Q-Xpress instead (just read the first note... again)
Can all questions about any of the items/characters in this set please go in this thread (Rather than Pm'd to the DA). Thanks

Update apr 14: Added a new version of the haunted painting. This should work for non-ep versions. If you had problems with the old one, please redownload. It'll overwrite the previous package.
Update apr 15: Repackaged the Bloody Baron. My apologies to Tabala.

Whoa! This is amazing - it's a free expansion pack! (Not to mention that it has much better tech support than EA, lol.) Thank you all so much for your hard work. This set is incredible.

What a project guys!

Thank you all so, so much! I'm a little reluctant to download the custom career but once my PC has been re-installed and my game is all fresh I might give it a try...

But well done regardless! I can't wait to try out some of those sims in-game.


You sang me Spanish lullabies,
The sweetest sadness in your eyes,
Clever trick.

Have you ever had an orgasm then passed out? (wipes drool off face)
I'm guessing I'm not the only one who will have that reaction. This is phenomenal!!! I can finally give up my quest to petition maxis to release an HP expansion becaue you have exceeded anything they could come up with. A whole new skill. I'm in awe.

It is imperative that we be given preference over these mendicants...

Be true to yourself, only your opinion of yourself truly counts.

Wauw. I must say when I saw all this someone I was absolutely gotsmacked. This projects must've taken you guys ages to make and must've been incredibly much work. I want to thank the whole "army" (nice name btw) from the bottom of my heart for putting so much effort in making this brilliant stuff.

Just like to post a quick word. That is faster than a postal bird. This Expansion Pack rocks. Now I can have OWL mocks.

Thankyou so much, I have been waiting for a magical expansion pack from EA for the sims 2, but you guys have come up with something much better and much more realistic than they will do...GREAT!!! ACE!!! MEGA!!!
