Please note it only works with the 'new' (post-Ambitions) way
of installing custom content in package format.What does it do
Step 1: It checks for updates to itself and prompts the user if an update is available.
Step 2: It reads your The Sims 3 directory from the registry.
Step 3: It creates a new folder inside My Documents, called "AwesomeMod Updater". The .zip files will be stored here.
Step 4: It checks if AwesomeMod is compatible with your current game version.
Step 5: It downloads the files if newer versions are available.
Step 6: It searches for awesome.package, ruleof6.package, nogreenhair.package, and straygnomefix.package somewhere in Documents\Electronic Arts\ and replaces them with the newly downloaded ones.
Step 7: It moves 3booter and FPS Limiter to the base game folder.
Step 8: It starts 3booter.Easy installer
You can use this as an easy installer for 3booter and FPS Limiter. It can also install AwesomeMod if you don't have it yet.
Please note that the updater does not install RuleOf6, NoGreenHair and StrayGnomeFix if you don't already have them in your Mods folder.Q:
Why would I use 3booter and/or FPS Limiter?A:

If the game crashes within 30 seconds of an attempted start, 3booter will kick it in the taco.
