But, yeah. Hard drive icon? Username folder? Sidebars? Computers? Words? No-no freaking clue.
I am using Finder to find this stuff, maybe there another file program that I need to use to find this stuff?

Definitions of "hard drive icon," "sidebar," and "username folder."
Where you should be starting to follow the path you're having trouble with
I'm a little surprised that these terms are giving you problems, since you seem to know your way around Terminal, which is much more complicated. It's probably the illness, so get better soon, 'kay?

So I went into body shop (apparently thinking I was smart or somethin') and created another one, just to see how it installs it - needless to say, that gave me no help! lol It auto-installed the sim and put the SIMS2PACKFile on my desktop - The file of the sim that it installed is different than the SIMS2PACKFile...so I'm back to square 1.
I have the Package installer, but all it does is tells me to double click on what I'm trying to install and when I do that I get nowhere (it wants to open a window to find out what it needs to use - Google or chrome or one of those) and 7-zip says I'm just crazy cause it can't open it.
It's one of those things where you know that you should know what to do and the answer is staring you in the face...but I'm old and that's what I'm using as an excuse! lol
So...my question is basically: are these SIMS2PACKFiles throw-aways or is there actually a way to retrieve my sims from them?
