    If you could download a mod for your life what would it be?

    Must . . . try . . . to . . . resist.

    Nah, can't resist. God mode, of course!

    (Especially given today is Yom Kippur - extra bonus points.)

    Come on DMC wouldn't that just make things too easy? You'd eventually get bored. :p @ Sorvo, I assume you mean drinking establishment.
    Personally I'd start with a new texture pack easily applied to my apartment and surroundings. I'm thinking SteamPunk.

    In game terms, a mod that allows me to take a peek at game files.
    I guess in real life that means some form of advanced metacognition or limited omniscience like intellectus (Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files comes closest to describing the concept).

    If I can't have those, I'll take door number two.

    Oh I like that one - can I add that to my collection? Actually I could use a controllable mind reading feature. I definitely wouldn't want to be able to read peoples minds all the time.

    I keep seeing this thread, and keep thinking of something I read back when I was a teenager looking at Alt.sex.stories.moderated called "Master PC". (Can I provide a link? This isn't the adult section). It spawned a number of stories, not all of them NSFW. Actually, it was a PG-13 fanfic of it called "OtakuPC" that directed me to the original. It wasn't even hosted on ASSTR when I found it, but on a now defunct site (link to archive.org)
    Even if you ignore the sexual implementations of the program and limit it to yourself instead of others, it still offers quite a bit for self-improvement.

    If you're linking to a website that has all kinds of stories (not confined to the M rating alone) that are accessible from within the story you link to, it's better suited for the MUG. I've made a special thread there for this. Here's a general explanation of how the M rating is applied here and what's fine to post outside the MUG and how. If you need further clarification on anything, feel free to ask in that thread.

    The second link on archive.org is to a mostly SFW story archive that contains a single link to the Master PC universe page. The Master PC universe page has a lot of naughty stories, but Studio Asynjor (archive.org is hosting a mirror of the now-defunct site that hasn't been active since 2003 and went offline sometime in the last 5-7 years, I don't know exactly when but it did work in 2013). The page also has the original Pokegirls story "Wild Horses and Pokegirls", but surprisingly it's not a lemon story.
    I haven't been there in a while, I'd downloaded everything back in the early 2000's for reading offline, but there might be a lemon chapter or two on some of them, I honestly can't remember.
    Most were PG-13 fanfics of Ranma 1/2 and crossovers with other animes like Sailor Moon.
    Sorry, it's been almost 20 years since the site was active. Some real gems are there however.
    If it helps, here is the main page.
