Order of "The Sims 2" Expansion Packs

Install expansion packs in the order they were released to minimize problems.

When possible, I recommend installing the expansion packs in order. The expansion packs build upon the previous one released and include patches for previous expansions. In theory, installing the expansions in the order they were released should save you a lot of problems in the long run.
