You're told to get them so often but some of them like crumplefix I always forget because I just ban her from all lots and never see her.

I'd add to that some of cyjon's mods:
No Auto Urn Cleanup
Memory Fixes
There Can Only Be One (Professor) because I get two with antiredundancy

Not all of these are essential mods. Some are just style of gameplay, like No Trash Memories (some of us actually want gossip) or the only one Professor. Also, the cheesecake fix is only useful if you don't want twins every time they eat cheesecake and the annoyance fixing mods are just annoyances, not corruption.

It would be more useful if only the essential to avoid corruption mods were included.

Yes that is why I put this at the top of those list: "Each group has at least 1 fix that will help on corruption." and I made the text bold to show the ones that will help with the corruption.
"No Trash Memories " helps with the bloat for slower computers to run better.

I have placed the none essential mods under spoiler tags.

Can we make this thread stickied/a sticky thread? Please? Anyone?

People just need to be aware that a vanilla game isn't necessarily a safe game.

Maybe you should place Director's cut under spoiler tags too.

The Director's cut is where you can get all the "Essential Mods" in 1 download instead of having to do many downloads or searching for the ones for your EP setup.

The problem is that they are NOT all essential.

#10 Old 4th Sep 2014 at 5:38 PM
Agreed. The Director's Cut contains essential and useful mods and it's handy to be able to download them all at once. That said, ALL the mods in the Director's Cut are essential only to Pescado and probably a few other Simmers. Because no one plays the game the same way, is annoyed by the same things, and probably no two Simmers have the exact same mods folder. I know it's a slog, but read through that word document that describes each mod and decide which ones you want to move to your Downloads folder rather than dumping the whole thing in there. It's good to know what you're putting in your game. Not to mention being aware of potential mod conflicts, especially if you use big mods like inTeen.

That is why I only listed the "Essential Mods" that are needed for better and cleaner game play from the "Director's Cut".

Not picking on you, marka. I often see the Director's Cut recommended in threads like this and just wanted to give some general advice about it to new Simmers. : )

Can I ask why nostrayrespawn is considered essential? I've never used it and like the game replacing strays I've adopted in with new ones.
Also likewise for nodormieregen, I like new dormies to spawn

I didn't even know about crumplefix, does that only prevent her going ape on sims in the shower or does it come with hidden 'features'?

For slower computer the "no respawn " mods help with the bloating of the character folder which can slow down there game.

Quote:
J. M. Pescado:
As it turns out, most of Mrs. Crumplebottom's more obnoxious, as opposed to humorous, aspects stem from, surprise, surprise, buggy Maxian programming that isn't working as it should. The Clothes Lecture, for instance, seems to occur because the "target counter" loop and the "target selector" loop differ by one key logical line ("Ignore This Sim?"), and that even when a target is not found, the target selector loop runs anyway (it shouldn't!), and thus chooses the first sim that is naked (but SHOULD have been ignored!), which, invariably, is the showering sim. She also loses her powers of X-ray perception with this, and can now only detect sims in her room. Because Mrs. Crumplebottom is cool. She assaults random strangers with a purse full of powdered cement! And that's simply hilarious.

I think 'alfixes' is not an essential mod.... because http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=538689 and http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=533369
It can actually replaced with 'GummiluttPhysiologyFix' and 'ah_LovePotionRestockFix' The other issues are fixed in the patch.
Of course the rent hour is not appropriate for vampires in apartments but 'alfixes' disables those (I call them) date gifts e.g. date flowers.

If you look on Simbology, you will see some mods that are actually better than Pescado's and they're not quite so old.
Remember, he did his mods almost 10 years ago, and there have been a few more done he had never gotten around to doing: Simbology

You can pick and choose really what kind of mods you want to run, but you really should check out Paladin's place to download the HDCU, which (if you don't have it already) will help you figure out what mods do or don't play well with one another:

Default Auto Save Game Mod
Someone was asking for this in one of the post but I can not find it now.

Their are two interactions on the Auto Save Game Manipulator. The "Change Auto Save Frequency" interaction will allow the you to change how often the auto save dialog appears, Right now you can make the dialog appear every sim hour to every 100 sim hours(uses the grocery dialog). The second interaction "View Current Auto Save Frequency" will allow you to view how often the auto save dialog appears.

Install to My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads, If using Windows XP or older. For Windows Vista and 7 install to User Name\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads.


The Auto Save Game Manipulator is in buy mode under misc then misc and looks like a hour glass, Costs $0.
Doesn't require any Expansion or Stuff Packs, It will work with just the base game.

Two of the archtypes in CAS are broken and are not properly linked to the other ages. Sims created using these templates can pass this "brokenness" onto their descendants.

So is there an actual link to the mod that will stop redundant social class townies from regenerating? If a mod actually exists, since you don't seem to have provided one.
