THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Let me try to explain further. What I am looking for is an option to click on a sim that is not currently in the household I am running and have the option to "select sim". Once I do this then my control switches from the household I was controling to the household of this new sim I have selected. Ctrl-Click does nothing when clicking on a sim from another household.

As of yesterdays build, control still worked for me in selecting other sims.

Nevermind, I see now you found your problem.

ShowConfig in the newest version of AwesomeMod has an option I have never seen before, and can find no mention of it in any of the threads - "InformOnStoryAction: False"

Was wondering if anyone had any further information on what this option enables. My (hopeful) guess would be pop-ups informing you of the Story Mode type of actions occurring in the neighborhood, replacing the need to spend an hour reading the paper every day!

When story mode gives someone a job or does a change in the relationship between 2 sims or fires someone or has someone retire etc etc etc it will let you know.

It is kind of cool to see... and usually there aren't too many popups.  (They generally happen at 1 am)

Yes.  Go into the console (ctrl-shift-c) and type Familyfunds Lastname 5000 to set the Lastname family's money to $5,000.  You can set it to whatever amount you like.

Is editme supposed to be gone from the latest version?  I tried it out and am getting an unknown command response.

I don't want to put this in the bug thread in case it's a feature.

The name of this thread is not a lie! That is a most excellent helpful tip.

It seems obvious now, you'd think I would have hit on it when I was typing in all the variations on edit I could think of. So not awesome of me.


Thanks.

Hi fellow simmers! Okay, so I just downloaded awesomeMod and I have a Mac. First I downloaded the 'framework.zip', and after, I downloaded the 'awesome.zip.'

This is the folder route:
Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 > Framework > Mods > Packages > Awesome

Is this correct? Should awesomeMod work?

These are the ONLY two things I downloaded. I did NOT download 'Delphy's Framework Install Monkey For Dummies.'

This sounds... well, awesome.
So, I hope you'll explain a couple of things to a peasant (me).
What is a hack framework (it's required--what is it? is it related to ".NET Framework 3.5", which is a requirement for Install Helper Monkey? and I don't know what that is either). I know this is probably basic. I've lurked and read every post on the Awesomemod and I can't figure some of this stuff out. XML? (I see this one a lot... it's probably obvious  Embarrassed )

The Install Helper Monkey also states in its description on MTS "Please note that this overwrites any existing Resource.cfg file in the Sims 3 root folder." Should I care about this?

Sorry to ask stupid questions, but I want to learn!

Don't worry about all that.  Just download the monkey installer then run that.  Everything will be all set up for you.  Then download awesomemod and double click it.  It will install it for you.  Then double click on it again and you should get an error message saying the file was already installed.  If you get that then you should be good to go.  (repeat for the aweconfig.package as well if you want to customize awesomemod) load up the sims.  Play your neighborhood.  Then open up the console (ctl-shift-c) and type in "showconfig".  If you get a popup window listing all the awesomemod features... it is running correctly in your game.

After that, if you ever want to update awesomemod with a newer version you will have to delete the old awesomemod and the old aweconfig.package

If you can't find them... then just double click on the awesome.package that you downloaded and you'll get that error message again which tells you where it was installed previously.  After you delete those files double click on the new ones to have them installed.

It is as easy as that.  And no, don't worry about the monkey installer overwriting the resource.cfg  That only really pertains to people who have manually installed mods and made their own resource.cfg

No, it's not correct, and the mod (nor any other mod) will work whatsoever.

I strongly recommend you to use this installer, expecially if you didn't install anything else before. Shameless self-promotion, but really, explaining how to do it manually every time is a hassle.

With a sim selected.  (not in CAS or anywhere like that)

Do any of the other commands work for you?  It is possible you don't have awesomemod installed correctly.  Try typing in "showconfig" and see if that works.  (no quotes)

Please see my post one page back directing another Mac user to the relevant guide someone posted elsewhere.  It should work.  Macs are speshul snowflakes and require some steps that PCs don't, because they hide the file structure inside of what you see as an application.  I don't play the Sims on a Mac so I can't give you the exact directions, but someone else already posted them. 

Kind advice from a lurker:  It is a very, very bad idea to post on MATY without reading the entire thread (no matter how many pages long it is) to make sure your question hasn't already been asked.  Those who are More Awesome will poke you with sporks until you run away in tears.  If you're planning on posting again, read the FAQ:  http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php/topic,7437.0.html

When I type showconfig the list is so long it goes from the top of my screen past the bottom. The check you click to close the box isn't even visible. You can't click anything behind it and you can't close the box so it basically you are stuck. I had to Alt-Tab to minimize the game them do Ctrl-Alt-Delete to close the game.

You could have just pressed enter, but the new update changes that so it won't happen.

I've been busy with my current family who had a missing phone for a while and 5 screaming diaper-fillers.  I haven't had time to check on the randomly generated townie families.  Has the smarter AI been producing romance or kids in your town?  I saw one married family with three kids, but I think they came to town that way.  I'm sure the AwesomeMod is chugging away as it should, but I'd like to know if anyone has seen it in action -- sims gettin' it own all by themselves.

But I looked through the forum and I saw the previous user that was having problems. I read through the link that was given on your post, and it helped-- but, I got stuck because there are two awesomeMod downloads (the part going back to the framework folder).

I downloaded the Sims Alias that Marhis posted and it definitely seems less confusing. Now I just need to know what folder the awesomeMod download goes in.

Good rule: if it ends in .package, it goes in the Packages folder.
