Simple viewer for looking at and exporting images from The Sims 1


ObjectViewer is a simple viewing utility to view object files. Similar to SimExplorer, it lets you browse all object files in the game, from various angles and optionally export the images to standard graphic file formats.


  • View objects quickly and easily
  • Automatically detects and locates your Sim objects
  • Displays full filename where object is located to view duplicate objects
  • Supports multi-tile objects and assembles the images together
  • Unique rotation control to view objects from 4 different angles
  • Select near, medium or far zoom levels
  • Customizable background color
  • Export to standard graphic file formats
  • Supports The Sims 1, Living Large, House Party, Hot Date and Sims Vacation objects


There’s really no instructions needed. Just install and run. ObjectViewer will automatically locate your Sims directory, scan for all possible objects and display them in the list for you.

The rotation control lets you view the object from various angles. Just click on it and drag to alter the angle. The angle is displayed in the center of the control and the display is updated automatically.

Click on the Background button to display a color picker. Here you can change the background color you want the program to use. This is handy if you want to export the preview for a web page and want to match up the background color with the color of your website.

The Export button lets you export the preview to a standard graphic format. The following formats are supported:

  • Windows or OS/2 Bitmap (*.bmp)
  • JPEG – JFIF Compliant (*.jpg)
  • Zsoft Paintbrush (*.pcx)
  • Portable Network Graphics (*.png)
  • Truevision Targa (*.tga)
  • Tagged Image File Format (*.tga)
