While The Sims 4 might not have too much going on with expansions and whatnot, the mods available for it are vast and, honestly, one of the best parts of the game. Since the game’s official release, the excitement surrounding new expansions and stuff packs has slowly died down, all while the modding scene increased in popularity. Nowadays, if you aren’t modding The Sims 4, you really aren’t experiencing the game’s full potential. However, there can be quite a few different mods to choose from, some much better than others, and having a helping hand at picking out the best ones for you can work wonders. Here are the best in no particular order.
Food Delivery Service
The Food Delivery Service mod by LittleMsSam is an excellent one to start with. For the longest time, your Sims are pretty limited to the food they can order in when they’re really just not feeling like cooking dinner. This mod gives you more options for food delivery, including different types of food, serving sizes, and prices. Not to mention, the Food Delivery Service is available 24/7, making it a quick fix when you just don’t have food to cool or aren’t feeling up to it.
Better Babies & Toddlers
For the longest time, The Sims 4 has definitely put more work into Young Adult and Adult Sims rather than children, babies, and toddlers. Though, with the Better Babies & Toddlers mod by Caradriel, you can experience babies and toddlers in a whole new light. You will unlock loads of new options when it comes to interacting with the younger children in your household, and even share self-care tips among your new parent friends.
Career Overhaul Suite
You can’t go wrong with anything that improves The Sims 4 careers, given how important they are in the game. In the Career Overhaul Suite mod by Kuttoe, you can experience exactly that. You’ll see new promotional goals, new pay rate changes, and even reputation changes, fame bonuses, and goodie bags that can be brought home from work.
Death in Sims 4 is a bit of a joke, as the Grim Reaper will simply appear and take your Sims away. However, with the Mortem Mod by SimRealist, players can have much more realistic circumstances surrounding the death of their Sims. In this Sims 4 mod, players will be able to hold funerals, report found bodies, and show their condolences to grieving Sims. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you really get into the game and try your best to keep your Sims happy, having a way to honor them even after death can be huge.
In Sims 4, you’re pretty limited in what kind of character you can create. While there are some options to make some strange-colored sims so they can pass as aliens, that’s about all there is to it.
