This month we’re gathering all the interesting mods available for Skyrim, Minecraft, Sims 4 and many other popular games we want to tweak and keep on enjoying while also feeling like in an entirely new game. Check back for updates as we carry on with the Best Mods series and talk about graphics improvements, new content and more options in-game all thanks to the best Mods we chose to add to our lists.
This article will guide you through the installation process of mods for Sims 4.
How to Install Mods in Sims 4
Before we talk about the must-have mods for Sims 4, we should first learn how to install them. Download the mods from a trusted source like modthesims.com, where the community checks and curates them.
Go to System Files and search for the folder “Electronic Arts” and then look for the folder “Mods”.
After you have downloaded the mod files which should be in a zip file, extract them and place them into the “Mods” folder.
Start the game, and you will see a Mods startup screen – from there you can activate the mods you have downloaded.
When modding Sims 4, you should also pay attention to these things:
Most of the mods are script mods that add scripts to the game, and you can dump their zip and package files into the “Mods” folder.
Make sure the mods you want to install are not in conflict with one another – you should see that info on the source site where they say what a mod cannot work with.
Modders update their mods, so from time to time, you can look for new versions of the favorite mods you have to update them.
And most importantly: ALWAYS remember to back up all your saves before installing a mod.
Now you are ready to mod your Sims 4. Check back later this week when we will talk about the Best mods for Sims 4 according to what we want to add.
