The Best Mod Ever: Master Controller
First and foremost, I had to hit you guys with this one. The Master Controller mod isn’t a new one to The Sims series. Longtime modders are well aware of it, and it’s been tweaked and added into The Sims 4 officially by Deaderpool. Download it here.
For those unaware of what goes down with this mod, it’s more apt to ask what DOESN’T it do. Here’s just some of the features that will definitely enhance your gameplay:
- Story progression for households you’re not even playing. That is to say that people will get pregnant, married, divorced, change jobs, have to get on child support, and more.
- All cheats right at your fingertips. No more typing stuff in, you’ll be able to just click through the menus and easily get whatever cheat you want. This includes pregnancy ones, career, relationships, and more.
- Clean up! It allows cleaning up any stuck sims or stuff like that, super easily.
- Comes with woohoo changes that add a lot more depth to pregnancy within the game.
Give Your Sims More Traits
Best Sims 4 Mods
If you ever played The Sims 3, you may have felt a little ripped off upon creating a personality for your Sim in The Sims 4. Both games used a Trait System to give each Sim their own unique character, but the newest installation of the game decreased the number of traits a Sim could have from 6 to 3 (not including the bonus trait TS4 ties to a Sim’s Aspiration.) The Add More CAS Traits mod from Embyr311 removes that limitation and lets you add additional traits to any Sim.
You can keep this at a balanced number, like 6, or go absolutely crazy and make your Sim an explosion of personality by adding every possible trait. Finally, your Sims are able to be those smarter sims with weirder stories.
