AwesomeMod is a core mod for The Sims 3. It is created and maintained by J. M. Pescado and 'Doctor Boris', and is hosted at the More Awesome Than You forum. It was launched on June 4, 2009 for The Sims 3 base game.
AwesomeMod improves a wide variety of aspects of the game, but the vast majority of changes are not terribly obvious at first glance. The improvements vary from bugfixes, to the tweaking of things that Pescado finds stupid. A full list of changes can be found in the manual .
A large change is the replacement of the default story driver with the Awesome Story Driver, which makes the results of story progression in the neighborhood far more sensible. Another addition is the ability of the player to make families "sacred", which protects them from the effects of story progression.
Another major feature is "Supreme Commander", an assortment of macros to automatically control Sims' behavior.
Because of the very large number of small tweaks, there is an online configuration tool which allows users to turn individual features on or off. After the player chooses their configuration they will receive a file download, and must place the file in the same directory in which they placed AwesomeMod.
AwesomeMod adds one end-user accessible trait to the game, the Stupid trait, which greatly increases the time needed to gain skills, do homework, and read books. Stupid conflicts with Genius and Bookworm.
Generally, new versions are released shortly after the official EA patches.
Like all core mods, AwesomeMod is not compatible with other core mods.
