The Best Sims Mod Ever: Master Controller
First up for this Sims 4 mods post, 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.
Bills, Bills, Bills
Best Sims 4 Mods
Do you like a bit of a challenge with your Sims game? Well, this mod allows your sim family to feel the crippling weight of expensive bills every week. The modder promises it’ll provide a challenge while not being too ridiculous. It’s a realistic alternative to the base game’s often times easy to pay bills. This is often a point of contention between fans, since the game can become quite easy once you have a well paying job position.
How to Install Sims 4 Mods
When it comes to actually using Sims 4 mods, you’re going to have to install them first. I’ll make this as simple as can be and we can get it out of the way fast in this article.
First, you need to download the Sims 4 mod you want to download. Once you have it somewhere on your computer, you’re going to need to find it. Usually, this will be in your computer’s Downloads folder. Just go to your computer’s built-in search bar (on PC, you should see a magnifying glass on the bottom left-hand corner). If it comes in a zip folder, you’re going to need to extract it using an extract and archiving program. (If you don’t have one, I recommend IZarc for free.) In order to extract it, you need to right click it and select the “Extract Here” option that should appear. This will lead to the true mod file appearing in that same folder. Voila, you have the mod file you need. It should come in the “.package” file format. Click on that mod file and copy it. You can right click and choose Copy or you can hit Ctrl and C on your keyboard.
Next, once again access the search function on your computer and search for “mods.” This should lead you directly to the Sims 4 Mods folder. If not, then you must need to create this folder. No problem at all, simply search for your Documents folder, then click Electronic Arts, then select The Sims 4, and right click anywhere to “Create New Folder” and name it simply “Mods.”
Remember the mod file you copied? Paste it within this new mods folder and that’s all you need to do there! You just need to start up The Sims 4 and make sure that your mods and custom content is enabled by going into your game settings (click the ellipses on the upper right-hand corner of the screen, choose Game Options, then choose the Other tab, and make sure Enable Custom Content and Mods is checkmarked, as well as Script Mods). If you had never enabled it before, you might need to restart the game. That’s all there is to it! Enjoy!
