Oh good one, I was thinking about this just today. In addition to the Chaos painting and AwesomeMod, I use Twallan's Supercomputer.
Handy mod. You can add and remove skills, including the hidden skills. You can use the dresser option and edit in CAS which is a little handier than AwesomeMod's edit because you just click on the sim rather than type out the cheat.
I prefer Twallan's supercomputer and storyteller mods compared to awesome mod. Awesome always bogged down my computer. I got errors almost every game session. With Twallan's mods things run a lot smoother and I rarely have errors.
That being said, you can't do trogdorstrikesagain with Twallan's mod, but if I need to destroy my Sims in a fiery inferno, I know where to find it.
I also use mods from Modthesims which allows me to have more than the normal amount of party guests, garden a lot faster, do homework faster, and use the sinks and mirrors much faster. Personally, I'd rather have my Sims interacting than doing the mundane tasks. For storytelling, it helps not to be gardening for 8 hours straight.

I keep resisting the use of mods (the only one I'm using right now is Shimrod's no martial arts clothing). But I'm getting more and more tempted.....
I'll probably do it soon...but I might wait until after they've been tested with the Ambitions EP, because I'll be getting that, and would hate for it to be even buggier than usual because I have a mod installed.

OOOH! You CAN put sims on the new fangled OMSPs! I had a sim sitting crossed legged on a couch like I always wanted! Then my game crashed before I could get a picture. I'm not sure if it's the vanishing script, but it seems to happen when I play with the vanishing objects.
It adds a prompt to in game clocks that allow you to adjust the flow of time. Since Sims 3 light is so delicate, and we do get different light now for sunny and cloudy days, I find this really handy for story tellers.

It's not so bad actually. I've been playing with it and come back with tips in case anyone wants to use it. These are things that actually had me a little scared, lol.
Okay, so if you stop time, doors won't shut. That actually came in handy for some pics I think. Also, if you stop time, sims cannot teleport. Almost scared myself this morning until I thought about the door thing. So some things are more tied into time than you realize.
I tried it and I can't get it to stop time, only go very slowly. Doors close, but it takes awhile. And I also noticed it takes forever for sims to drive away in cars and when cooking they don't seem to ever finish.
But it is a great tool. I can have it be almost sunset for hours while I get my photos just right for example.
I only want Chaos for the expressions and animations, which I don't *think* debug enabler does - does anyone know if the old chaos painting will still work with LN installed (I can live without LN animations for now)?
