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:
Paladin's Place

Did you have particular one's in mind?
I was looking at downloading ACR,but it makes me nervous lol

"No Sim loaded" is my first choice from Simbology-it prevents and nukes all memories during the loading of a lot.

This is the BoilingOils' Mods/hacks page with BO's hacks/mods. Not all of them are in my game, but what there are, definitely belong there.

TwoJeffs' Page has an entire section of his hacks as well. These are definitely an improvement on the game!

Paladin did a few that are fun and useful, but the HCDU is essential for anyone who plays the game and has lots of mods/hacks in it.

As for ACR, it is a lot less complicated and fussy than the Inteenimator..by far. You don't have much to do to set it up, and it can just sit in the background..but it is useful for when you're starting a custom hood, and want to set everyone's sexual preferences-either deliberately or randomly.

There's nothing to be afraid of-ACR works with nearly every single mod/hack ever put out by competing modders/hackers.

Just a bit of trivia: TwoJeffs used to belong to MATY and was as featured modder there for many years until he decided to open his own site. He was friends with JMP, alias the "Dirty Old Man", "Pescado"..among the other names he's been called.

So you know where the talent comes from.

Not sure whether this would be any use to anyone but its a log of mods I use in my game with links direct to the mods. Not all mods have links as some can not be found but the majority do.

Cyjon's Fewer Tourists, NPC Maker Fix and Townie Apartment Residents mods are also essential for me.
Just like the There Can Only Be One Professor mod, it reduces the number of townies and NPCs in the neighborhood.

ETA: This mod fixes a game-crashing bug. Have you ever tried it? Mannequin sims can't give birth to babies because the game always crashes then but that mod fixes this issue. Therefore, I find it essential as well.
bloodredtoe's Mannequin babies can be born mod.

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


I'm sure someone included this or a similar list, but I found this article (http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Game_gui...ding_corruption) on avoiding corruption (with it's list of mods) very helpful. I keep those in a separate folder under Must Haves/ Anti-Corruption Mods. Some of the suggested mods in this MTS article DO change or "curb" the game in a way that I missed until I had to rebuild my Downloads folder and eliminated a lot of things I had previously.

I have added a new mod to the list in the first post called "BO - No Met Self Memories: Stop the "Met Self" memories without the use of NTM or Pescado's Dramafix."

This is one of the most prevalent memory that shows up in may game using Mootilda's Hood Checker program and this mod takes care of them.

MATY is down, it's an occupational hazard for that place. Just keep trying each day, it will be back up eventually.

I think I found another one while I was trying to work out why a new one was clashing.

Cyjon's Ghost Hack - Bug Fixes version http://www.cyjon.net/node/188

Bug Fixes - Contains a critical fix that prevents ghosts from haunting tombstones, potentially destroying them, shredding character data and corrupting your neighborhood. Contains smaller fixes that allow angry ghosts to visit the cowplant, and fixes reversed logic that causes Nice and Neat (rather than Grouchy and Sloppy) ghosts to create messes.

It's hardly essential for everyone, though! "Essential" here is supposed to mean "not wise to sim without it, regardless of personal taste," not "this is my favorite thing."

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

Sorry for my tardiness, but at this, the eleventh hour, I should point out that you've described the NTM a bit poorly: it does NOT prevent gossip from being generated, but ONLY from being recorded.

Saying "prevents it from being generated" CAN be interpreted as "sims do no longer gossip". And that just isn't true. With the NTM installed, sims will STILL gossip, but they will NOT store the things that they (hear) gossip about in their memories.

Hoping to have helped,
BO
