Electronic Arts
The Sims 2 Body Shop, formally known as CaSIE (Create-A-Sim Independent Editor), is a character creation tool. With the tool, players will be able to customize almost any part of a Sim. The Sims 2 Body Shop has the ability to add tattoos, pants, hair, shirts, and more! Facial features will also be editable in 50 different ways.

Each part created with The Sims 2 Body Shop is completely independent. This means gamers will have the ability to mix and match creations to make Sims for use in The Sims 2. Players will be able to share their creations with others through The Sims 2 Exchange, similar to the exchange for original The Sims.

With The Sims 2 Body Shop, players will be able to create custom body parts, such as makeup, eye color, clothes(including separate shirts, pants, skirts), and skin color. To do this, gamers will need The Sims 2 Body Shop and a graphics program to edit the custom parts.

The Sims 2 Body Shop can be downloaded at the Official Site, along with a content starter kit, that contains clothes, skins tones, and more. If you own "The Sims 2," during installation a newer version of The Sims 2 Body Shop will be installed. You can find the shortcut in the same location as "The Sims 2."

If you installed The Sims 2 Body Shop before installing "The Sims 2" or "The Sims 2 University," your shortcut may not work. You will find the new shortcut in the Start menu in Windows.
