    I recently reinstalled the sims 1 (have all games through Makin Magic installed). I use windows xp. I have my neighborhood saved onto a disk from my last computer but I can't remember HOW to place it back into my game. I've done it before but I just can't remember HOW!

    I know I took the folder and saved it on my desktop. Went into the sims folders and drug the saved neighborhood folder into one of the folders on the sims game but can't figure out which one :( Do I need to reinstall all the downloads (ex: sets, wallpaper, floors, etc) before my saved neighborhood will show up?

    PLEASE HELP! I miss playing.

    I know the following steps worked for me last time I tried: click on maxis folder, then the sims folder and a group of folders come up from "downloads" through "user data". I placed my saved neighborhood file in one of those folders the last time I did this but I can't seem to find the one that works to do it now.

    1) I need to find the folder I need to place my saved neighborhood file folder (saved on a disk) to and 2)need to know if I have to have all my previous downloads placed back into my game before the saved neighborhood should be placed back into the game.
