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!

Whenever I try to click on it, it comes up with a member login, and when I click ok it asks me again, so I click cancel and it takes me to a subscription page saying the following;

Quote:
We got almost kicked out from our server because of excessive bandwidth and diskspace use, and will no longer be able to provide free access to our file archives, because we will have to pay for bandwidth and serverspace now. If you would like to purchase access to our file archives, you may do so on monthly or annual basis. For just $5 you can have full access to all our files for a month, or for $50 a year. Currently we accept payments via PayPal, but in the future may include other payment services upon request. Once your payment has been received, you will receive an e-mail with login and password to access the archive. Normally you will receive it within 24 hours of payment. We appreciate your support and understanding. Your money will go towards purchase of a new server and paying down the bandwidth charges we incur while hosting this project.
1 month subscription - $5
1 year subscription - $50



Please remember to include your e-mail address, so we can send your login and password, and remember to keep them safe, because we will disable accounts that will be used in suspicious manner or by multiple users.

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!


Thanks, I have downloaded the new version of q-Xpress (I have Clean Installer which works just fine). If not I will try support once again. :salute:

The thing is, I was looking forward to having Bella in my Harry Potter neighbourhood along with the Rodulphus I made. I suppose I could still download her, but the outfit would not work.

All files should install fine with Q-Xpress. Make sure you are using the latest version (1.0.87) and check the FAQ (in Game Help) or the support forum (linked from the website) if the program doesn't work.

Tumblr - Yes, I have a blog. :)
