Sims Mods and CC

I have a love-hate-love relationship with CC – I want to share my builds and I don’t like that cc makes sims and builds harder to find on the gallery and harder to use. But I love the ethnic variety you get with CC hair. Mods though – Mods I can’t play without anymore.

Sims 4

Core Mods – Mods I would struggle to play without

  • Deaderpool’s MC Command Center with the woohoo module – Fixes culling and adds story progression and so much more! Check out my settings if you’re curious what this can do.
  • Moxiemason No Mosaic – um, yeah for me the mosaic is more distracting than the Barbie/Ken doll look.

Specialty Mods

  • Andrew Pose Pack and Andrew’s FX Player
  • Scumbumbo – other’s are keeping his mods up-to-date now.
    • Sim Teleporter, Don’t wash dishes/prep food where you angry poop, Keep books after publishing
  • Little Miss Sam’s Mods – She has such a variety of game tweaks and I always check with her to see if she’s fixed some of the bugs EA introduces. Some of my fav mods:
    • Automatic Thermostat, More best friends, Personal Objects, Pregnancy Overhaul, Plus lots of her small mods and bug fixes.
  • Tmex’s Lifetime Skills (with no steal bladder) – allows kids to learn some sensible adult skills while they’re still kids. Maybe it’s cheating, maybe it’s realistic.
  • Cyclelegs Less Mourning – I had to install this for my 100 babies. Toddlers kept mourning their aunts and uncles that they never met – and mourning FOR days.
  • Basemental’s Alcohol– I’m not interested in the rest of his drug mods, but I do like the realism of getting drunk on juice.
  • Zero’s University mods that increase the cost of going to university. I like to make my sims suffer.
  • NoirSim’s Fanart map overrides – not actually affecting gameplay but it makes the maps so much prettier!
  • Weerbesu’s More CAS Columns – it breaks on almost every update, but on a bigger monitor, it’s nice to see a little more at once. I use four columns.
  • Scarlet’s Subject Homework – allows your children to gain skills while they do their homework. I also use her bad grades are okay, but my kids so rarely fail school.

Mods to Help with Screenshotting

Favorite CC Makers

When I find something I like I usually see what else they got and get it too…I prefer Maxis Match. In the past I’ve used lots of CC but when I got to building and wanting to share those builds I scaled way back.

  • Peacemaker (I love it all! – but I just have his rugs and shrunken coffee tables right now)
  • LumiaLoverSims (Mainly the skin overlays)
  • Ry’s Maxis Match Finds (Clothes and hair – this is good resource to find a variety of cc makers (Much like Lana CC finds used to be)

Sims 3 Mods

  • NoBuildSparkles
  • NoIntro
  • NRaas‘s de-censor, master controller/cheats, and woohooer/scoring, portrait panel, mover, story progression, etc
