If you are bored of opening The Sims 4 to see the same old worlds, sims, and dodgy builds then don't worry, there is an alternative. Simmers have taken to sharing their save games with others, creating a whole world of unique creations, stories, and builds to explore. Here we take a look at some of the very best save files, that are sure to intrigue you, no matter how you play. Some of these files simply fix quirks in the game, while others add new builds and sims.
There are also solo efforts and collaborations, all in a variety of styles. So, if you want to add a unique twist to your gameplay then check out these amazing save files. While not all of them span every world in the game, each one offers something unique for those looking to replace the default save.
Over time the EA builds have improved but many still have annoying mistakes in, such as misplaced doors, off-center windows, and stairs that lead to nowhere. If you're fed up with playing on the same toilet free default lots then these save games are for you.
Some replace everything you can see, others tidy up existing lots and one, in particular, is going to evoke a few memories. We've added four more so there are plenty of options to choose from. No matter what your playstyle, you're sure to find a save file that appeals to you. This save file from Rosebud is a little different from the norm as it is inspired by The Sims 2.
It replaces Strangerville with a Strangetown inspired world and Willow Creek with Pleasantville inspired one. Each world has recreations of the original builds in The Sims 2 worlds, as well as townie makeovers to reflect those worlds' stories. A few details have been modernized to fit The Sims 4 style but the inspiration and attention to detail remain evident. Anyone who remembers The Sims 2 is sure to recognize some of these iconic buildings.
Also, keep an eye out for Bella Goth, there's something strange going on. Tumblr user RandomChick32 has created a save named the fresh start savefile.
It's basically a fresh coat of paint applied to the regular save.In Sims 4players are encouraged to design life and tell stories the way they want. Still, with all the available content, the game can sometimes feel shallow or like it is missing crucial features for realistic gameplay, preventing players from creating the lives, worlds, and stories that most appeal to them.
The Sims modding community has been able to address much of this. Players can create and share custom content and add features to the game that allow players to tell a wider variety of stories.
Each different player will have their essential mods based on playing style, but many mods are almost universally enjoyed. If the vanilla version of The Sims 4 has started to cloy, here are the best mods to get in and how to download and begin playing with them. The best mods for Sims 4 for most players will be ones that add crucial life or utility features for the game. Many of these are still being updated by their original creators, so even when a new patch comes out for the game, many of these mods will continue to work.
The Slice of Life Mod by kawaiistacie is perhaps one of the most well-known and downloaded. This mod gives Sims physical changes based on their moods, like a flush when they are embarrassed and dark circles when they are tired. Female Sims can get their periods, Sims get drunk, lose a tooth, or experience acne. Sims can also find out their Body-Mass Index, and players can choose a Sim's Meyers-Briggs personality type, which comes with new traits and moodlets.
There is an auto-saving option so players never lose too much of their game if there is a freeze or crash. Sims can now pay child support, adjust their bills, and have a risky WooHoo that might result in an unplanned pregnancy.
Players can increase their maximum household size to up to Sims, set skill difficulty, and set how many in-game days a Sim will stay a certain age. Most importantly, players can now populate the world of The Sims 4 with their custom Sims, rather than random townies. Using the MC Population Controls, they can choose for Sims saved to a player's Gallery to spawn in the world in place of the randomly-generated Sim characters.
The UI Cheats Extension by weerbesu makes cheating user-friendly and part of the game. Rather than needing to open the console, with UI Cheats Extension, players can simply right-click the User Interface to cheat. For example, right-clicking the Sim's career will allow the player to promote them, and right-clicking Household Funds will allow the player to set the amount of money their Sims have. While this is a fairly small upgrade, it will come in handy for players who have all the Sims 4 DLC or have downloaded enough custom content.
Also by weerbesu, the More Columns in Create-a-Sim mod allows players to control how many columns of options appear while they are in CAS.September I recently got a new laptop and downloaded Windows 10 on it. I downloaded Sims 4, I had played it before on other laptops and I wanted to put custom content in my game, like always.
I also couldn't find the saves folder either. Does anybody else have this problem, know anything about it, know how to help?? Go to Solution. If you want to play with your old saves, you'll need to manually move them over from your old computer. I don't work or have any association with EA. Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.20 MODS THAT CHANGE YOUR GAMEPLAY EXPERIENCE! // THE SIMS 4

How to Install Custom Content and Mods in "The Sims 4" (PC & Mac)
Installing custom content and mods in your Sims 4 game can be a bit confusing! From knowing where to place the items, to figuring out what to do when your CC doesn't work: there's a lot to know and it can be tricky, especially if you're a beginner.
This guide will teach you all you need to know about downloading, installing, and troubleshooting custom content and mods for the Sims 4! Before you get started with downloading and installing custom content, you'll need to make sure your Sims 4 game is up-to-date with all recent patches. Make sure you are connected to the internet, then open Origin, go to The Sims 4 in your Game Library, click on the Settings tab, and then click on the Update Game button.
If your game does need any updates, Origin will automatically download and install them.
If your game is already fully updated, you'll get a notification telling you so. When you start downloading CC, you'll notice that many of the files end in names like. These files have been compressed by the custom content creator so you can download them and put them into your game.
However, you can't just place a. Therefore, you'll need a tool to extract these files. I recommend using Winrar which, despite the name, can be used in both Windows and Mac to extract your files.
You can download it here.
Once you've finished downloading it, install it on your computer and move on to the next step! Ensure that you've enabled mods in your game settings. By default, The Sims 4 has an option to disable mods in the game. Before you get started with playing with mods and custom content, you'll need to start up your Sims 4 game and turn mods on you'll also need to do this after each patch that is released, as the game options default back to mods being turned off.
To do this, start the game, click on the Menu button the three buttons on the top right cornerGame Options, Other and then tick the Enable Custom Content and Mods box. Then hit the Apply Changes button and restart your game. The next time you start it up, your settings will be saved and you'll be able to play with mods! Now that your game is patched and you've got a proper extraction tool on your computer, it's time to download some custom content or mods that you'd like to use in your game!
If you don't already have one in mind, I've written some articles on some great custom content sites and mods for the Sims 4. Feel free to browse those articles to find something of your liking! Once you've found the content you want to add to your game, click on the download button on the website. If you're using Google Chrome as your Internet browser, you'll see the item downloading at the bottom of the screen.
Once it's done downloading, you can right-click on the little arrow, and then choose to go to the folder it's downloaded to. Typically, your downloaded items will go into your Downloads folder on your computer.Where do you even start looking? Where do all those files go? What do all these techy terms mean? Why do all your mods keep breaking whenever you update the game?
How do you fix it? Sims Community is here to help. Before you do anything, take a moment to familiarize yourself with the following terms. Mods: Game modifications made by fans of the game. These modifications change the way your game behaves. There are small mods that make minor changes to the game, but there are also very large mods that completely overhaul existing features in the game or add brand new features to the game.
Mods need to be updated frequently to keep your game running well. CC: Stands for custom content. CC is content created by fans of the game. Unlike mods, CC does not change the way your game behaves. Mesh: Without getting too techy, think of a mesh as the shape or skeleton of an object. Everything in The Sims needs both a shape mesh and at least one colour texture to show up properly in your game. If a creator says that their CC requires a mesh, it means you need to download the shape of that object from somewhere else.
Creators will link to any separate mesh downloads you need, so follow the link to download the mesh. Recolour: A recolour is exactly what it sounds like. A recolouring of a mesh. Creators can recolour existing Maxis content in the game, or custom meshes made by other creators. If a creator says their CC is a recolour, make sure you also have the mesh for it.
Creators will let you know if the mesh is included or where to go to get the mesh.
Alpha: CC that is hyper realistic. Alpha CC aims to make the game look as true to real life as possible; however, because of its high detail, it is also more taxing on your computer to render. Most lower-end computers cannot handle a lot of alpha CC. Maxis Match: CC that matches the clay-like art style of the game. Maxis Match CC is not as taxing on computers to run, but keep in mind, too much of any kind of CC can slow down a low-to-mid-range computer.
This content often includes clothes for your Sims, traits, aspirations, and much more. In fact, Maxis encourages and supports the modding community! The default path for your Sims 4 folder is located in your Documents folder.
The Mods folder will generate inside the Sims 4 folder once you have launched the game with mods enabled. Right-click to open it using a simple text editing program, such as Notepad. You should see something like this, but on one line:. The number of asterisks equals the number of folders deep. There should be six by default, as shown here.
That was the easy part. When the boxes are ticked green, that means the mods have been enabled. When you downloaded your game, you chose a folder to install The Sims 4 to. Navigate to it and locate the Mods folder. For the sake of this tutorial, I chose a few base game compatible mods that are linked below. Packages will sometimes come separately, but not always.
Sometimes a set will be available only as a merged pack of content. Keeping your folders organized can help you single out corrupted files that cause issues in your game. The screenshot above includes the file names of the downloaded content linked earlier in this post for this how-to guide.March I have been playing sims 4 for some time now and i wish to add mods to it, however i find that every mod instructs people to put there files in the mod folder.
