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.


Policy thingy

- Please don't steal our work.
- Don't upload the sims or their custom content without permission.
- You're very welcome to recolour the objects found here, but please link to this thread for the meshes.
- You're allowed to remesh the hacked objects, but please give credit to the original creators, and post a link to this thread with your upload.
- We like to know about recolors and additions! Please tell us about them so we can link you here.

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.


Enjoy!

Hey guys- remember to use Clean Installer to install your sims- even if they are made with all base game stuff- you can sometimes get an error (maxis fault) when installing unless you use the clean installer.

It looks great, but Q-Xpress does not work on my computer and has caused it to crash twice, I have asked for help in the forums but somehow either my request is in the wrong place and it is moved or I receive an uninterested reply. I am not flaming Delphy, but you seem rather sharp rather than helpful as I have found on other occasions. This is a real shame as I would really love to have this amazing work.

It seems as though Bellatrix Lestrange's clothes are from a pay site? So I cannot get the mesh...

There are many free rar programs out there you can download and use to unpack the files. Also if you have windows xp it does it already..

Sorry the other does not work for you...

Windows XP comes with WinZip, so depending on what other programs you have it may not do .rars.
However... WinRAR does, and it's free! (And if you ever want to upload something, rar files are smaller than zips, so WinRAR is the way to go!)

If you're having problems with Q-Xpress, then from what I can see Delphy checks the Support Forum quite often, and if it's still not working, then you could try sending him a pm - but don't spam him whatever you do! :moose:
I don't know much about the Q-Xpress, but I'd help if I could!

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.
