Looks like things are heating up with The Sims 2 now so I figure I’ll just post the info as it comes in.

The Sims 2 Website now offers downloads of the Sims 2 Body Shop as well as a starter pack of content that is required for its operation. There is accompanying HELP, a FAQ, as well as downloads of user manuals in various languages on how to get going creating your own little people for the upcoming get a life sequel.

Be prepared, the download for the tool is 100 MB and the starter pack (which is required) is another 100 MB. So that’s a good night for just downloading for anyone on dial-up or slow(er) connections. Even on Cable or ADSL, you’re still looking at 15-30 minutes of download time.

Let the games begin (again).
