The Sims 2 Website – Still Down for “Maintenance”
Posted by Sims 2 Category

 

Well it has been about 2 weeks or longer since the “Maintenance Mode” of the Sims2.com website has been up.  Not sure what type of maintenance they are doing, but it has been a long while.
 
Sims 2
 
During their last Sims 3 site update they removed The Sims 2 banner from the bottom of forums to add “Sims Social”, so perhaps they are trying to slowly shut the site without notice?  Hopefully this is not the case, but who knows with EA’s web team now a days.

Anyway, during the time the site is down and anyone requires Sims 2 Patches for their games, I have all Sims 2 Patches uploaded for your games.  Please note that these patches are for the single packs and are not supporting the “Compilation Game Collections”  that were created after.  If you have any questions, direct all your comments here .

  4. alex says:

    =[ im forced to play my sims 2 and i can even have cc =’[

  5. Dave says:

    ^
    You can have plenty of cc without the exchange(I still miss it too, however.) and most of the things at these sites are higher quality items:
    Modthesims2-Anything!
    Sims2workshop-varied items
    Vovillacorp- Lots, and lots, and lots, of sweet cars.

  6. Layla says:

    YES!!!!!!! SIMS 2 IS WORKING NOW YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THINGS NOW! IT WORKS! So happy :)

  7. Alicia says:

    okay . . . . i try to open up the website, and it takes forever, but then it says Internet Explorer cannot display the Web Page. HELP ME. :o

  8. Lynze says:

    Having the same problem ^^
    So. Annoying.

  9. Sims Junky says:

    WHAT IS GOING ON!! GRRR… One day I going to download a cheerleading oufit from the site and Internet Explorer said it couldn’t display the page, so I went to Google Chrome and the same thing happened, so then I went Firefox and the same thing happened! WHY!!! I NEED SOME ANSWERS?? I reinstalled my Sims 2 game and everything and it still didn’t work. :(
    This just took away my holiday spirit.

  10. Sofia says:

    It’s still happening!!! It’s been really annoying because I got Bon Voyage and Open For Business for Christmas and now I can’t download anything for them because of the stupid website!! ._.

  11. Jade says:

    It looks like they just dumped everything from the site, it says 0 for all posts, ect. Did they really do it?

  12. Sierra says:

    Well this just sucks. I JUST got sims 2 double deluxe, looking forward to downloading some custom content and the whole entire sims 2 website looks like it’s been freaking wiped clean from all exchange content. Not only that, but I can’t log in or register a new account. I’m ticked. They better get this fixed. I contacted EA and told them what happened, and they told me they couldn’t help me. D:< Like, there was something wrong with my registration code or something…What the heck.

  13. Lily says:

    I bet you this is one of their tactics to promote Sims 3..I bet you that’s it.

  14. Dawn says:

    I am having the same issues. Haven’t been to the website for a couple of months due to not having internet connection. Went on the other day and it would not allow me to log on. I contacted EA and they confirmed that my user name and password were correct; yet, I still could not log into the website. Contacted them again and they said they would work on it. That was 3 days ago and still haven’t heard a thing.

  15. Sims Junky says:

    EA is trying to get EVERYONE to buy TS3 and I say N.O! I’ve always loved TS2! I have Sims 2 Double Delxue, Sims 2 University Life Collection, Sims 2 Open for Business, Sims 2 Apartment Life, Sims 2 Seasons, and Sims 2 Freetime! I mean come on I almost have all the games. Ea if you want me to buy Sims 2, you better give me 100 bucks and let me try it out, even though I have and know it SUCKS!

    I’ve contacted EA last Saturday and was asking why the site wasn’t working and how I couldn’t log in. They were like make sure to put in the correct password and username and I AM, I’ve been using it for like 6 months now. The exchange is totally EMPTY and EA sure isn’t helping. EA, I WILL NEVER STOP PLAYING THE SIMS 2 AND IF YOU DONT’ LIKE IT THEN GO F*** YOURSELF!XO

    It looks like the sims 2 site’s back up!

  18. Trish says:

    Well.. it was up a few days ago… and now last 2 days down again… I had to redo my game and went download some sims.. and no go… yet again.. This site is up then down up and down…. I prefer the sims 2 as well… EA… get your act together…. good grief….

  19. Sims Junky says:

    The site was up and now it’s back down. It’s been like 2-3 days, I think. But yeah, EA come on, can you guys make up your mind. Just keep the site up. Oh yeah just a tip if you’re going to re install your Sims 2 game(s) and it has CC on it, take out the Downloads folder and when you re install it but it back in your Sims 2 folder, it you give back all your CC.

  20. Trish says:

    Thanks will do that next time… tired of this site always being down.. I have so many sims saved on my page.. and cannot get to them… I agree EA needs to keep this site up… let us at least use our page… I will be be buying anymore sims 3 items… I have played it and hated it.. so just rather play the sims 2… !!!

    • Sims Junky says:

      The Sims 3 in my mind is just too realistic, it’s like being in the real world which I hate. My cousin got me the Sims 3 for Christmas and I said, “Thanks, but I would have perfer the Sims 2 Seasons.”
      Oh and no problem with the Downloads folder, if it doesn’t work sorry, it does for me.
      ROCK OUT SIMS 2!

      • Karou says:

        I agree with you Trish. I have played the sims 3 games and they’re horrible. I know about thirteen other people who have tried the sims 3 games and said the same thing as me and you, that they are stupid, hard to control and options are very limited. Every time I go to the store in the video game section the sims 3 games are always at full stock. no one buys them. EA is completely crashing did they get a new manager that is bad at stocks and rates cuz it seems they are blind to the failure of sims 3

  21. Sims Junky says:

    Oh yeah this is TOTALLY off the subject, but I’ve downloaded some pose boxes onto my games and now all of a sudden all my lots (except for the Pleasant family home, for some strange reason) WON’T load. And even when I go to the Pleasant family home and try to find my pose boxes they’re not there. Any help would be greatly appropriated.

  22. Trish says:

    I dont know too much bout pose boxes.. You have to be very careful bout some downloads… I have a subscription to the Thesimsresource..and some downloads from the Modthesims… but the skins I like are on my sims 2 page.. to which I cannot access… odd thing is the site was just opened back up.. and now they take it down again…. so if It gets back up… will dash in and get what I want… geez.. I just do not understand them.. Ea………..I also re-read my last comment.. I meant to say I will not be buying anymore sims 3 expansions…….have base game and world adventures and high end loft… ick…lol

  23. Sims Junky says:

    Thanks for the help.
    I have Sims 3 base game and High End Loft but I never use them. I leave them in a box.

  24. Shadowcassie says:

    Fuck! It’s back down again! And I was gonna look up MCR sim stuff…

  25. Sims Junky says:

    It was working earlier this morning and then i went to download something and said the server was down. WTF!

  26. Whit says:

    My Sims 2 has been down since last Saturday. My game got corrupted but then I fixed it but I lost all my content which sucks ._. So I went to download them that day and to my luck the website is down o-o’.. Now I’ve been checking on a daily basis for it to go back up. I wish it’d go back up already it’s the only site I trust to download my content .-.

  27. Betty says:

    Im trying to call EA games but it takes like FOREVER on hold D; What number should I call? Thanks alot :)

  28. Person says:

    I think they restarted the site. Now when you go on, none of the cc that was on before is there.

  29. Monica says:

    Hmmmm…..anyone else still getting the guy with the many different languages when they go on the website? Now I’m confused if it’s my new computer that won’t let me download or if they shut down….

  30. Betty says:

    I just wanna know >.< Is the sims 2 website never gonna work again?!?! I think I might call ea again…

  31. Betty says:

    I WOULD download from modthesims2 and webs like that but Idk how to get the clothes to my game, with the exchange you just have to press download and with the other websites you have to like click “exctract” whatever the heck that is D;

  32. Lexi says:

    One week ago, I went on the sims 2 site and it looked like it was running. I went to the exchange, but it kept on saying NO RECORDS FOUND. Then, when I re-loaded ther site, it came up with the trouble/ maintenance page.

  33. sophie says:

    omg i need to get some sims2 cloths trin to make a sims series

  34. Sarah says:

    Okay we found a way to get around the supposed “down for maintenance” bug.
    1) Go to thesims2.com
    2) Hover over the ‘Help’ icon and go to ‘more…’
    3) Go to the ‘Exchange Patch’ section and click ‘Download the patch’
    4) Enjoy the website!

    Although not many people have figured this out, so there aren’t many sims to download, so help spread the word! EA can’t exclude us Sims 2 lovers just yet! (:
