As always, The Sims 4 modding community brought forth a bunch of awesome mods for us to enhance our favorite PC game. There were particularly a ton this month, in preparation for the new Parenthood game pack. Hoorah! Here are the best Sims 4 mods from May 2017.
New Dining Room Furniture
If you’re tired of the regular furniture found within the game, it’s the time to download some mods to fix the place up! Here are all new sets of dining room furniture to populate your sim households.
There were also a couple of mods that make butlers better in The Sims 4. With these, you’ll be able to ask them to cook or bake something specific, at a moment’s notice. Also, they will put away the food, too!
It’s a little annoying that sims seem to be so perfectly in tune with their circadian rhythm that they immediately wake up once their energy is fulfilled. With this mod, they will be able to sleep in and sleep through the night, making it perfect for their days off.
No More Bathroom Mess
Are you annoyed to no end when you give a toddler a bath and they make a puddle mess all over the bathroom floor? Well, thankfully, someone made a mod that takes this feature out. No more mopping after bathing them!
Autonomy Sims 4 Mods
As always, autonomous mods are very helpful to take out a lot of simple annoyances found in The Sims 4. There were quite a few new ones that might be relevant to your playthroughs. Here they are!
Vampire Sims 4 Mods
Even though the Vampires game pack is now old news, modders are still improving upon it. There were some mods that released in May that might be useful to those players still living the undead lifestyle.
New Kitchen Furniture
Looking for more kitchen furniture to populate your sim houses? Well, there were more mods made to add some more spice than EA is willing to give us.
Forbidden Fruit Helps
Besides turning your sims into PlantSims, the Forbidden Fruit is pretty lame, huh? Well, with this mod, it will act as an important part of your PlantSim’s life. So, if you find yourself full of those green families, download it and Forbidden Fruit will satisfy your hunger.
This mod, in and of itself, is pretty funny. It’s to add a Pathetic trait to your sims, and what it entails is pretty great. Here’s a rundown, from the creator:
- Sims will get electrocuted more easily
- Elder Sims will get exhausted more quickly
- Child and Teen Sims will take longer to do their homework
- Job performance will increase much more slowly
- Energy need will increase much more slowly
- Sims will be considerably worse at all skills; however, the rate at which the Sim learns these skills is not affected.
- Decoration moodlets are now blocked
- Hunger Need decays much faster
- Having high needs makes these sims Sad
- New Baby Moodlet changed to a +2 Sad moodlet
New Bathroom Furniture
Had enough of the bathroom furniture found in the base game and packs you own? Time for some mods! Here are a couple of bathroom sets you can download.
Under the Sea, Under the Sea~
Some amazing modder actually made it possible to explore beneath the water in The Sims 4. That’s right, if you’ve been missing The Sims 3: Island Paradise, these are some mods for you.
More Best Friends
If you’re the kind of person that considers best friendship a tier, then this mod is for you! Your sims will no longer have to choose just one other sim to be their best friend. Go on and play, Mindy Kaling.
Beautiful Rock Borders
If you like to put rock formations around stuff to accentuate it, like a fence, then you’ll be grateful for these mods. Download them to get some pretty beautiful borders around whatever you’d like.
New Bedroom Furniture
More beds is always a good thing. Bless modders that added more into the mix. This month, there’s quite an assortment of new bedroom furniture in general for you to use.
Finally, you can live out your perfect hacker dreams. With this wallpaper mod, you’ll be able to have some super cool Matrix code effect moving down your house’s walls.
You Can Work From Home~
Continuing the trend of “work from home” mods being produced, there were two more added into the mix. With them, you are able to do Culinary work from home, and Business work from home, as well. No longer will the City Living careers have this option!
Family Can Be Hired
If you want to do a Bob’s Burgers kind of playthrough with a Sim family, you need this mod. It allows you to hire family members into different positions within your restaurants. Family owned and operated, indeed!
More Serving Options
Isn’t it kind of annoying that it’s all or nothing with food servings in The Sims 4? With this mod, you will be able to choose way more servings and portions to do. Even a double option, for a family of two!
You’re a Wizard, Simmy
Awesome. We can now be sorcerers in The Sims 4. This is one of those mods that prove the community can make the game anything. With it, you’ll be able to become a sorcerer Sim that can even have powers and level up.
Ovals and Circles
If you wanted to make a kiddie pool or maybe just a circular flower bed, this is the mod for you. It allows you to build an oval or circle low fence. Placing it around a pool is the perfect way to make a tiny kiddie pool for your family!
New Living Room Furniture
The living room is where a ton of simmers spend most of their time playing. It’s normal to get bored of the offerings that you have with the base game and the packs. So, it’s time to showcase some new living room furniture you can download!
Finally, What We Always Wanted
We didn’t know that we wanted Toddler Sims to have full penguin costumes… but now we know that this is exactly what The Sims 4 needed.
