"The Sims 2" is a great game. There's no doubt about that. But (you knew there was a but coming, didn't you?), Maxis left out a few, what some would call, essentials and created a few annoyances. The modding community, has found ways to hack into the game and change the gameplay. Thank you modders! Just remember, even though each hack goes through lots of testing by the creator and other gamers, there still may be bugs and conflicts with other hacks. Be sure to read if there are conflicts between mods and that it is for the expansions you own.

The InSImenator will do everything! Well, almost everything. It is an object that is used in a Sim's home that edits the Sims, rules, and gameplay. It is a powerful tool that needs to be used wisely. This editor can make Sims grow up, change the day, add or subtract days for Sim's age, make a Sim pregnant, change fitness, edit aspiration, and a lot more.
