NO MESH-OR 3D-PINCH
A Mesh to provide from beginning till the end is not easy first. But everybody would act which do handicraft with pleasure for Sims2. One needs in addition from 5 to 6 programmes and must learn to serve this. These are just at the beginning very time-luxuriously, till one the first mesh in the play has. Then, however, one has still got to know long not all refinements.
The main work exists in the construction of 3D (chair, table, bed) in a 3D-programme. The second pivot leg of a good mesh is of the UV-Mapper, where the texture is pulled more than the up to now uncolored 3D. All other is a technology, converting and integrating the new play components in a ready and play-readable package. And these are changes in the settings of available play contents with the SimPe which require, however, again more knowledge. However, here it should be about 3Ds.
Because some creators can provide no own 3Ds or want, they have gone over to downloading ready 3D-models from 3D-sides on the Internet and to using this. This is permitted in the rarest cases by 3D-Creator and must be looked as an unlawful and theft. At best a creator of Sims2-meshes should mention fair-wise the creator of the free 3D. Also it should be mentioned that is not stopped at the theft of the meshes of other Sims2-creator.

These very nice 3D-models of 3d-Creator exist, in addition, of very high polygon figures, because these are not determined for the use as a Sims2-Mesh. IT IS NOT RIGHT THAT ONLY MANY DOWNLOADS YOURS PLAYS MAKE SLOWLY. ALSO HIGH POLYGON NUMBER OF THE SINGLE MESHES BRAKES YOU PLAY CONSIDERABLY FROM.
Here is a link which leads you to a forum, where a (incomplete) list was started with meshes with high polygon figures.
You must announce yourselves there only with pitching name and password, however, this goes very fast.
NO HIGH POLYGON NUMBER WITH MESHES
What are polygons? Easy-understandably expressed, are the surfaces of a 3D-model. This surface consists according to curvatures and implementation from passed away to many polygons.
This ball, e.g., consists of 288 polygons and the single one red marked is one of it. A responsible mesher would award in the 3D-programme at most 800 polygons per square in the play, for 2 squares in 1600 etc. Today are permitted a little bit more than in the beginning time, because the resources of the current PCs have further risen.
However, there are free and pay-meshes of creators, up to 50,000 (!!!) polygons per mesh show. With 3,500 polygons per mesh and play square one already speaks from a lot.
A too high polygon number demands of the PC a lot of resource. Then some less strong PC will would at least start to jerk in the play, because he too much arithmetic achievement uses to be based thus a polygon-strong 3D. To property mesher also do not need it to offer polished 3Ds, because one can lay the texture so skilfully on the 3D with the UV-Mapper that a simplistic 3D is strongly revalued.
Here is a link to a 3D-side where certainly many of You will remember the already one or other download-cash mesh. Look at models:
This is only one page, there is countless and Interesting among You simply may use google once.
WHERE CAN I SEE HOW MANY POLYGONS THE MESH HAS?

You open your package file with the SimPe.
NO SALE OF PAY SETS
One can argue about the sales of pay things of the Sims2 fan's pages. If somebody may spend money on it, he should do it. Indeed, one should also know about that, that in the end user's licence is defined by EA clearly, that one may sell no Sims2-meshes. Also every mesh which is provided is a property of EA.
All meshes which are provided with tools by EA and/or are based on their plays may be offered only free and to everyone on fan pages. That is one may require no money for it, all the same in which form. Every side, the pay sets offers and is it against "donation", this acts illegally.
Unfortunately, many creator of pay sets also already help themselves and use ready 3Ds of partly professional 3d-creators on the internet. These are not mostly to the wide use, never mind for the sales released and it is an other unlawful action explains to do this.

Here in the end I show once again the end user's licence of EA which should know at least every creator:
