CEP COMPONENTS

Starting from CEP v.8.0, both the Installer and the Manual Installation zip contain all the CEP resources:
  • CEP core files: these are required for the CEP to work.
  • "CEP EXTRA" components: these are fixes and additional features that are not required, but their installation is strongly suggested; read details about the CEP EXTRA in the Documentation installed along with the CEP.
  • CEP Documentation: it's optional, but it's very interesting; it includes the FAQ, a detailed list of the CEP EXTRA and a full list of all the objects that come with the game.
  • CEP Icon Set: optional; it's mainly aimed to webmasters (to put them in the download web pages or in the local CEP Info page) and CEP enthusiasts.


INSTALLATION and USAGE

The CEP can be installed automatically (Windows users only), or manually (Mac users, and anyone who wants to have total control on what happens on their computers )

  • Automatic installation (Windows users only) - Download the file "CEP_Windows-AutoInstaller.zip" and unpack it on your desktop. Double-click on the installer (CEP_Setup.exe) and follow the instructions.
    You have to choose which "CEP EXTRA" components you want to install, select the path where to install the Documentation and choose what parts of the Documentation you want to install (any older CEP version will be automatically uninstalled).
    To uninstall, use the "Add/Remove Program" applet, in the Windows control panel, or the icon in the Start menu.

  • Manual Installation (Windows and MacOS X Users) - Download the file "CEP_Windows+MAC_Manual-Installation.zip"; unpack the zip on a temporary folder. Open the temporary folder, and you'll find all the needed files, along with detailed instructions (for Win and Mac) that will guide you in the manual installation.
    To uninstall, remove all the CEP files from your system, following the instruction provided in the same text file you used for the installation.


CREDITS and ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

By now, the CEP is updated and supported by me (Numenor) alone. Nevertheless, many persons deserve our personal thanks and credits for their help:
  • RGILES and QUAXI for having invented and created with me the first CEP, that still "survives" into the current CEP. Very special thanks to QUAXI for his valuable tool SimPE and for his great kindness and patience
  • MaryLou for the help in testing the CEP, for fixing the UV-map of the Toilet Stall and for the CEP Icon sets v. 6, 7 and 8.
  • SimplyStella for the CEP Icon sets v. 3/4/5.
  • Rentechd for the CEP Icon sets v. 1/2.
  • IgnorantBliss for the countless hours spent on updating the CEP List
  • Havelock for many fixes included in CEP9 (Bohemian set, security gates, Club counters, Closet doors).
  • And last but not least, thank you very much to all the CEP users, and in particular to Lord Darcy, for their help reporting bugs, discovering Maxis faults, suggesting modifications and asking for more recolourable objects.
