An unexpected mystery is solved!

The filename for treasure number 12 is gplaiddress.Sims2Pack, and therein lies the rub.

If you get a .xml file, it's because your web browser is recognizing that the ".Sims2Pack" file contains XML, and it is automatically changing the extension on the filename to ".xml" for you.

So... to get that treasure to work, right-click on the link to it and choose "Save target as..."

Then, when your web browser wants to save it as a .xml, change the filename back to gplaiddress.Sims2Pack before saving.

(Alternatively, just rename the file after you have downloaded it.)


This same approach will work any time you find that your web browser is changing a .Sims2Pack extension to .xml.

Once you have downloaded a Sims2Pack file, double-click it to install.

There are probably some settings in Internet Explorer somewhere that will prevent this from happening, but I don't know what they are.
