DarkSpawn Social Media Manager, Content Creator & EAGamechanger
For a game released in 2014, The Sims 4 still feels unfinished in many respects. After the success of The Sims 2 (2004) and The Sims 3 (2009), fans of the franchise have recently voiced their dissatisfaction with the lack of content that allows players to give their Sims more personality, or to allow for more dynamic gameplay. The modding community for The Sims 4, however, have provided content since launch that gives players that much-needed boost of reality, fantasy, and everything in between.
The Slice of Life Mod by KawaiiStace
This base-game compatible mod from KawaiiStace adds more realism to the game for Simmers who enjoy more in-depth storylines and a hint of drama. Your Sims can now get moodlets when drunk, pimples when they have an Acne outbreak, and even lose teeth! There is also an upgraded cell phone with apps that expand Sim’s relationships and allow them to build new skills. What more could you want?
Extreme Violence Mod by Sacrificial
In a PEGI 12 rated game you might expect that violence is kept to a minimum, and you’d be right. But not every Simmer wants everything Family Friendly, and mods can help make your gameplay a bit spicier. Extreme Violence by Sacrificial is one such mod, long praised for enabling Simmers to create Hunger Games style challenges and Serial Killer Sims in their games, the mod adds weapons such as guns, chainsaws, knives, and even an axe, to the game as well as non-deadly interactions such as the ability to choke, slap, kick, and punch Sims. It’s not for everyone, but if you enjoy some healthy cartoon-style violence, this could be the mod for you!
MC Command Center by Deaderpool
This is possibly the most downloaded and most popular mod to date for The Sims 4, with mod creator Deaderpool gaining almost 2500 Patreon users since it’s creation. The mod itself is available for free download via Tumblr, but fans of the mod can pay for early access and extra access to behind the scenes features and updates. MC Command Center (MCCC) gives Simmers the ability to change an unimaginable amount of features in The Sims 4. From ‘risky’ Woohoo that allows unplanned pregnancy, to adjusting the duration of each life stage, and ‘freezing’ your Sim’s physique. Basically, this mod gives you an incredible amount of control over your gameplay any storylines that you want to create.
