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!

It won't show up in the game unless you have Uni, Nightlife, and OFB. You must have all three expansions.

You know what would be epic? If someone made a mailbox for true Harry Potter inspired Sim worlds! An Owl on a Post! When you get mail, you see the mail in the Owl's beak or talons! The more I think about it the more I want it. I would make it myself but have no idea how. I'm new to Sims, Only been playing it for two months now... though I would count only a few weeks since my computer is being rebuilt after It started crashing when i try to play Sims. So I don't know the first thing about making custom content for the Sims 2. Anyone up for making the new "Mailbox," OwlPost?

I think Harry Potter themed foot would be great. Like Butterbeer and Firewhiskey from the bar and fridge, and candy like Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, Licorice wands, Cauldron Cakes, etc.
