Default Game version question
I still hang out to my Sims 2 Store Edition, because this is a way for me to start my game without using my M&G CD, and I guess a way to bypass noCD stuff.
When I create a lot and package it to a file and click on the LotSegment, at the bottom, the version says : The Sims 2 Store Edition.
The only lot I ever uploaded was in 2009 at TSR.
I redownloaded it, and the version says : Mansion & Garden.

I take that the version of a lot determine if one can use it or not.
I went ahead and installed my old lot without a problem, or without any error message.
Now I wonder if it would work the other way around?
Can someone on the UC or on discs up to M&G, be able to install my lots?(Store Edition version)
If someone wants to try, you are welcome to ask me, and if this was the wrong forum to post redirect me.

I would need one member on UC and one member with discs up to AL/M&G to try and install a lot of mine using Clean Installer.
I am curious, again.

EDIT:
I am adding a link to my SFS, a zip that contains a packaged Lot I just created. This is a empty residential lot.
Do not attempt to install it if you do not have Mansion & Garden.
I would advise to rename your EAGames folder (in your Documents)and start your game, so a new empty one is created.
Then use Clean Installer to install my test Lot.

The only difference will be the version, see picture attached.

Thank you @HugeLunatic
But you won't have to search high to find one, as I am editing my post to share one for people to try.
Where do you see EP99 on lots?(in SimPE of course) I cannot see this/don't know where to look.

It says in SimPE under version information, that it is the store edition.



Editing to add I installed it fine in UC

Yay!
Thank you gdayars. Yep, it says Store edition in the version in SimPE, that I knew. It was the EP99 thing I could not find.
So I guess Rosie can start sharing her Lots on here. Not that she wants to, but she could.
Thank you again so much for testing this for me.

I am re-opening my thread as there is one question I still don't have an answer for..might be because I never asked.
Now that I know my lots are compatible in a configuration without The Store Edition ; given all other EP's are present, how would I flag it on here if ever I want to upload a lot?
If you do not own The Store Edition, will you be able to see it in the results, because of the filters?
I am asking because,
I have it checked in My Sims 2 Stuff Packs Purchased. But when looking at Showing Downloads Compatible With : Store Edition is not in the list.
What should I understand?
I am pretty sure, if uploading a lot on here, I leave the Store Edition checkbox unchecked, I'll be told to check it. Eyes are everywhere fortunately.

I have Apartment Lots, Dorms, some new Residential Lots, and some Community Lots as well that I'd love to share.
Thank you.
