HD Disk Image with bundle of many games/software installed (or ready to be installed)

Hello and I hope all are well.

Looking for hard drive images with bundle of many games/software installed (or ready to be installed) on them, sorted into compatibility folders. The goal would be to have the images set up in the preferences for all my emulators, so I can run the software from any of them as needed. Would anyone be willing to share your disk images like the above or direct me to a location where I can find similar set ups available?

NOTE-1: I have recently stumbled upon my two emulator packages I put together a few years ago. Basilisk II running OS7 and SheepShaver running OS9. Like many, the original reason was to bring back find memories of the programs and games played many years ago.

I immediately fell back in love with the classic mac systems and began right where I left off of downloading games and software to use with them. For each emulator I went through the painstaking process of downloading programs, running the emulator, transferring to emulated HD, using stuffit, then installing and hoping for the best that it would run.

Then I realized that I could use a disc image to keep the installed programs on and run as needed.

NOTE-2: I think I would be able to find whatever I may be looking for, but the trick is "knowing" what your looking for... Its appealing to think of a disk that contains all types of software and programs that I have not used in years (and may not even remember using) and that the software is known to work with the emulator and/or is the best version to use with the emulator.

Here are a couple: disk1.hfv (OS 7.5.3) and MacOS7.hfv (OS 7.6.1).

Thanks! I am downloading now and will check them out.

I wonder if there has ever been a collaboration here to put together the ultimate disk image containing all of the best software available here... Not sure if anyone would be interested, but I would be willing to be part of a team/group effort whose goal is just that.

EDIT: I just realized the significance of who replied to my post. I very much appreciate you taking the time to help me out. I will let you know how they work out for me!

Worked like a charm! Thank you very much! I need to make a few disk images myself containing only the programs I feel I want to use on any particular emulation session.

Just tried Enigma. 700+ levels of goodness.
