Keep your Sims happy by decorating your home with over 150 objects in the game and downloadable ones from TheSims.com. Test your "people skills" as you deal with family, friends, careers, and chaos.

Works with ISO, goes through menus, I can make a Sim in "Get-A-Life" mode, but as soon the game finishes loading, it hangs on loading screen (but music keeps playing with ingame sounds too sometimes). Actually, I got "almost ingame" by enabling the cheat that unlocks the "Sim Mode", but as soon as I selected it, it hangs (see last pic).
