Note: many of Cyjon's hacks use his SmarterEP check.  Be sure to download that if necessary.

Note: Please read Unified RTFM for JMP's hacks before deciding to install his hacks. Links to JMP's hacks by EP

Note:  SimWardrobe doesn't allow links to individual pages.  In general, you navigate the site by clicking the Sims 2 button, then "Fixes," then the name of each EP.

Warning: I recommend many hacks from Back Alley Sims (BAS).  Some are now available from the family site.  Others are only available from the adult site, which requires visitors to be over 18 and register at the family site first.
