Best mod for or best Master Controller Mod...
« on: March 24, 2012, 05:02:18 PM »
I'm looking for an easy mod that enables me to control the town population, and maybe make things a bit more fun.

I've never installed a mod before so I don't know where to look. Help?

MasterController.

I provide instructions for installing them on my blog. It's an adapted version of the ones Jeana posted in this board.

1. Navigate to Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3.
2. Create a New Folder. Name it “Mods”. It must be capitalized.
3. Enter that folder and create a new Subfolder – call it “Packages” (again, capitalized)
4. Now we need a specific file. Download this file (direct download) and place it in your Mods folder.
5. Now all that is left is… Downloading a Mod! Please note that the following instructions work if you are using Windows 7. If not, you may need to download a program like 7-Zip or WinZip.
6. Download the Zip file from the site. If you download from NRaas Industries, it will have little link at the bottom.
7. Put it somewhere safe, like the Desktop.
8. Extract it. Right Click it and choose “Extract…”. Press OK when prompted. If you do not see this option, try again. If you still don’t, download a program like I explained in Step 5.
9. Copy the one file inside into your Packages folder.
10. You’re done! Enter the game.

I would highly recommend Master Controller and all its modules. Nraas Story Progression is great too, because real EA tends to get boring, and you can actually see what's going on, instead of a bit of surprise. (Personally, I don't like surprises though.)

Is it the same method for all the other mods? I'm also interested in the StoryProgression one.

Yes it is.
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

Looking at the NRaas wiki, no. Register manipulates service and role Sims in town. Like the Bouncer, Tattoo Artist and Pianist. And on the MasterController page, twallan states "MasterController's purview is to provide functionality to manage the population of your town. The mod provides manual interactions for altering sims either individually or en-masse" which is why I posted the link here.

Master Controller is great for managing the town. For Bridgeport I decreased the percentage of vampires, so that everyone wasn't turning like before. I love Story Progression, because it goes with the traits of the sims and can be very funny. In Bridgeport, apparently everyone is getting together, breaking up and many dead beat dads end up in jail for not paying their child support.

Figwit is correct.  Role Immigration is large part of illegal immigration in town.

Such is noted here : http://nraas.wikispaces.com/StoryProgression+FAQ+Immigration#Where

NRaas Industries.  Saving Sims games from becoming doorstops since 2009.

I am having a lot of fun right now with the pollinate feature. :3 In SV, there will be a lot of half-IF kids!
