How To: McCommand Center

These instructions are accurate as of July 20, 2017.

MC Command Center is a wonderful mod that adds story progression, disables culling, and basically allows you to tweak various settings of the game. I’ve been running with it in-game since I finished my Pigglewiggle Legacy last fall. You can have just run in the background, quietly updating your unplayed families or have it be an active participant.

It’s fairly easy to set up  – but there are some steps involved. (I only have PC instructions here as I don’t own a mac anymore.)

1. Download at MC Command Center Deaderpool’s Tumbr.

There are two files. The first is the majority of the modules zipped together. The second is MCWhoohoo which used to only be available on sexysims as it affects the pregancy and relationship of your played sims.2017-07-20 12_22_38-MC Command Center.png


2. Unzip the file

Find out where you downloaded it to and unzip the file. On a PC you should be able to do this by right clicking on the file and clicking “Extract All.”

If you have an unzip program installed you might have more options. By default, Windows unzipper will create a file next to the zipped file.

If you click to open the new file you will see all the files inside, they are all .script and .pdf files.

The Whoohooer zip has only two files in it. You can copy these into the file you just created with all the modules in it if you wish.

4. Put this folder in your Mods Folder

Drag the folder into your Sims 4 Mods folder. (You want the one that looks like a folder – not the one that looks like a zipped up folder). If your game is installed normally, you will find your Mods fold in your Documents Folder > Electronic Arts > Sims 4 > Mods.


5. Edit the Resource.cfg file

You will only need to do this the first time you install MCC. (And you may have already done this for other mods). This is what that huge block of red-backed text was saying on the downloads page. In your mods folder, right-click on the resource.cfg file and click open.

It might ask you what program to open it with. On a Windows machine, Notepad will be fine.

The file should read

Priority 500
PackedFile *.package
PackedFile */*.package
PackedFile */*/*.package
PackedFile */*/*/*.package
PackedFile */*/*/*/*.package

2016-06-16 11_24_08-Program Manager
This allows the game to look inside folders for mods.

6. Save the Resource.cfg file.

7. Start up your game.

You may need to enable scripts mods if you haven’t already done so – or if the game has been patched recently.

Click on Menu > Game Options > Other and check the option to allow script mods and enable Custom Content and Mods. You will need to restart the game after this change.


8. Check to see if MC Command is working.

There’s a handy popup that appears in your notifications now when you start the game showing all the modules that are installed. If you don’t see it. Then it’s not working. There’s a great troubleshooting document on Deaderpool’s tumbr.

9. Where are the settings?

Go into the game and into a house with a PC. Click on the PC and you should now see the option for MC Command. Clicking this will get you the menu options. There is also an MC Command Menu item when you click on a sim.

I’ll go more into the settings soon.
