Some of the greatest things about The Sims franchise is the availability of free custom content (cc)/mods and the initiative that many simmers take to enrich the game that they know and love. There are hundreds of users that showcase unique custom content and handy mods.
As always, whenever you are pursuing the mysterious thing that is the internet, make sure you are traveling to trusted sites, downloading responsibly, and have a good antivirus. 👍 Though I am not a cybersecurity expert, I would avoid Ad.fly links and .exe programs.
6 Great Websites for Sims 4 Custom Content and Mods
Even though I have been playing The Sims since 2011, I only just recently started enhancing my gameplay with third-party content. However, about a month after trying out different and simmer recommendations, I have found multiple websites that I find myself returning to weekly.
The Sims Resource (All Sims)
The Sims Resource is a vast collection of custom content and mods for all iterations of The Sims. This content ranges from cute dresses and hairstyles to full-blown houses and sims. This is especially good if you prefer Alpha (realistic) content over Maxis Match (similar style to Maxis).
The only downside to this resource is the download limitations (one download at a time), filter limitations, and copious amounts of advertisements–unless you pay for their subscription service.
Maxis Match CC World (Sims 4)
Maxis Match CC World is a Tumbler page would be amazing for anyone who likes Maxis Match CC (which looks similar to the original Maxis content). I have found that Maxis Match World has wonderful filter options through their navigation bar and the content is rich in variety with great quality. I have downloaded some of my favorite CC/Mods using this website.
However, there are often Ad.fly links as options for downloading and the links take you to other Tumbler pages. Even though this option does provide a bit of profit to the creator, I recommend taking the Ad-free download option.
Mod The Sims (All Sims)
I have not used Mod The Sims as much as other sources; however, the few mods which I have downloaded have been literal game-changers. I have specifically tried plasticbox‘s fix for washing dishes in the bathroom sink and icemunmun‘s custom food.
Fresh Prince Creations (Sims 2, 3 & 4)
Fresh Prince Creations was the website that truly began my love of custom content. Fresh Prince provides different types of content–but their vehicles are unforgettable. I specifically downloaded the 1973 Volkswagen Beetle for Sims 3 and was amazed by the detail. On top of all this, most of the hundreds of creations are free and have no ads.
MC Command Center (Sims 4)
MC Command Center (MCCC) is a script mod for The Sims 4 which provides the player with advanced control over things such as population, percentages of age groups, and story progression. This mod also prompts your sims to put away their books after their done reading. MCCC has a couple of different add-on mods available as well.
NRAAS (Sims 3)
NRAAS is essentially the Sims 3 version of MCCC. This mod provides you with detailed cheats/bug fixes, settings, and acts as the foundation for their other mods. This specifically pairs well with their Master Controller, Overwatch, and Story Progression add-ons. Descriptions for these can be found on their website.
This list is just a sample of all the sources that I have come across for the last couple of months. If you have any other great mods/custom content sources or favorite creators, feel free to comment them down below.
