essential mods list
These are my essential mods/programs for The Sims 2! ʕ♡˙ᴥ˙♡ʔ
Mootilda’s Hood Checker ─ A necessary tool used to check for corruption in your neighborhoods.
Hack Conflict Detection Utility (HCDU) Plus ─ Another necessary tool that finds hack conflicts in your game. Updated to HCDU Plus by whoward because it is able to find many more conflicts. Also recommended: SiMidge.
SimPE ─ Number one essential tool/program that allows you to view package files, tune/create mods, edit ages/names/etc. download version 0.75.69.
Lazy Duchess’ RPC Launcher ─ A custom launcher with added features and fixes. Includes a Discord Rich Presence, First Born Syndrome Fix, Borderless, and Better Live Mode Camera. Can’t live without this!
What Caused This? ─ Reads the object error log file, extracts some information from it and then looks in every mod in your Downloads folder to see if it can identify the suspect mod(s).
Object Relocator ─ A utility for moving Buy Mode objects around in the catalog en-masse by changing their Room, Function, Sub-Function and Community flags, and also their Price.
Download Organizer ─ I find this incredibly helpful when I need to see my mods/cc organized by date downloaded.
Chris Hatch’s Lot Cleaner ─ Object in buy catalog that cleans a lot of sim references, and removes the Super Duper Hug Bug. Essential if you download/upload lots frequently. Recommended to remove from dl folder when finished as it will automatically clean a lot if you just click on it in the catalog.
Anti-Redundancy ─ Eliminates the spawning of redundant NPCs.
No Death Type Loss ─Sims no longer lose their death type upon moving their tombstone to a community lot. Also, ghosts will now be the correct color from the type of death.
No Corrupt Death ─ Suppresses the corrupt death memory.
No Unlink on Delete ─ Game stops partially destroying sims files when deleting a tombstone.
FFS Lot Debugger ─ Lots of very useful debug options. I use the pretty vase version. :)
No Sim Loaded ─ Eliminates “Sim Loaded” and other tokens when loading up a lot. Also
prevents and fixes the Super Duper Hug Bug.
Gussy Up ─ Change, buy, and plan playable and townie Sims clothes.
Soft Shadows 2.0 ─ Turns the blobby outdoor shadows into soft ones, like in the family portrait and indoors. Great for screenshots. *Don’t use if you have dreadpirate’s mm lighting mod.
Sim Blender ─ Holy Grail management mod. Allows for a host of different options. A serious must have! *updated Mar. 2021 with added 1-3-5 day aging.
Sim Manipulator ─ Similar to Sim Blender but with several more options. You can have one or both, I use them interchangeably.
No Townie Regen ─ Prevents the game from spawning new townies.
Day Setter ─ Sets the day of the week for the current lot. Necessary to keep hoods in sync.
Weather Controller ─ Sets the season and weather on the current lot.
Smart AgeCorrect ─ This mod corrects the age span length of a hood. Must use with custom lifespans in order to change entire hood’s age span.
Remove from downloads after loading a lot and receiving the pop up that the mod worked. Updated to Lazy Duchess' version which does not require taking out the mod.
Auto Save Game ─ A pop up appears that asks if you’d like to save the game.
Shiftable Everything [TEST] ─ Move any object using [ or ] like in The Sims 4. Still in testing.
