The Sims 4 gives you the ability to control a household at your convenience. You can start with a small family, or have a house full of roommates struggling to make it in the world. How you approach the game is up to you, and since this is a single-player experience, you can modify the gameplay to include mods. These mods can bring new graphical aspects, new models, character choices, career choices, and much more. Here are some of the best mods to add to your Sims 4 experience.
Le mod Explore
There's more to your Sims world than you can see them doing. The Explore mod created by KawaiiStacie lets your Sims go beyond their typical neighborhood to visit a world you never knew existed. You can let your Sim run off to do things with you that need to micromanage their actions, and you won't see them until they're done. Many of these activities give them a boost for a while, so it's worth doing.
For those who only have the base game, the mod works exceptionally well, but a few options require selected expansions, which KawaiiStacie details on their mod page. The mod also adds a new trait called gambler, where your Sim can add a home card table to bet money against others. They won't lose money unless they do it outside of their home, so double down on your naughty bluffs and hope for the best.
Have some personality please! mod
Do you feel limited in how your Sim can react to more generic choices? Give them the chance to better show their true nature with this custom mod. The Have personality please! the mod comes from PolarBearSims, which allows you to see a Sim more closely approximate the traits they possess. If your Sim has a more comedic nature, they will want to make others around them laugh and make a fool of themselves. If you have an angry Sim, you might see them yelling and yelling at each other, rather than casually telling them about the weather or learning about their day. You can give your Sims a wider variety of emotions beyond the standard ones available in Sims 4.
Meaningful Stories Mod
How your Sim reacts to everything around them determines their actions throughout the day. The Meaningful Stories mod by roBurky creates a new system of emotions and moods, creating a deeper experience for your Sim to have deeper ramifications for what happens to your Sim. Your Sim may experience special events in their life that they wouldn't have without this mod, like feeling genuinely happy to have shared the first kiss with a new love.
They might find themselves plunged into a depression and they need the support of their friends and family to help them. With the Meaningful Stories mod, the longer your emotions and events with Sim will have lasting effects on them that day for multiple days in-game, rather than having a quick turnaround. It makes special moments more lasting.
MC Command Center mod
Do you want to control almost every aspect of the game, down to the NPCs your Sims regularly hang out with? You can do this with the MC Command Center mod by Deaderpool. The mod gives you the ability to control tiny details throughout the game where you can block specific clothes from showing up or even dictate how NPCs act and change them. You don't need to download the whole file. You can choose which parts of the mod you want to grab, such as controlling aspects of your Sim's career, cleaning up annoying NPCs from the game, how pregnancy works, and many more. For those who like to micromanage almost every part of their games, this is a great mod.
Unlike the others this is not a mod but a page full of potential mods you can add to your game. On this page you can choose from a variety of different careers to add to your Sims 4 game. You can add a career in animal care, as a mortuary, rocket scientist, mage, zookeeper and more. There are mods added to the page from time to time, which means if you find a few you like, you should check the page to see if anything new comes from the community members. Be sure to read the mod on the page before adding it to your game to find out how everything changes.
