I am running Windows 10 and I DO NOT have the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection I have purchased all of the games I have separately! I have tried downloading the Graphics rule maker but the link is legit broken!! Any suggestions I have been dealing with this dang flickering for 2 years now and I have had enough!!!

I have no idea, I'm sorry, I was just answering to the bit where you said you couldn't download it because the link was broken.

I'm not even sure what you mean by flickering, I don't know that I've ever experienced anything like that.
Maybe start by giving a few details about your computer (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:System_Specs).
Also, do you have those issues with a vanilla game (that is without any downloaded content added) too?

I did write down what I did myself (disk install on a W10 laptop) but that's for fixing resolution issues, not flickering ( http://simlili.tumblr.com/post/146373494212 )

If it's flickering when you rotate the camera, try toggling Smooth Edges in the in-game graphics options.
