9. Story Progression Mod

This mod takes the base game’s story progression and puts it on steroids. The town Sims will realistically go on with their lives, getting married, breaking up, changing jobs, and having babies. You can push inactive resident Sims in your world in specific directions so that they progress in their skills, careers, relationships, and lives. It also adds an adjustable guideline for the behavior of all sims in town. The mod allows you to control demographics in the game, too. For example, you can decide to cap the population, you can choose how many sims die, get married, have children, or even how many should be vampires. You can manually set skills, traits, relationships, pregnancies, and relationships to any sim in the town, not just your sims. Story Progression is a really cool mod to add to your collection that changes your game quickly, and helps make the world feel more real.
