What Are The Most Fun Sims 4 Mods?

The Sims 4 is an awesome game as it is with all the various expansion packs, game packs, and stuff packs.

The Sims community is known for its creativity, creating content while entertaining fans from YouTube to Twitter.

However, to bring a feeling of freshness whether it's a challenge or wanting more jobs and clothing choices you need mods.

Mod creators come up with so much creative content that Sims 5 can wait.

How to Install Mods

Here is an easy example step by step process to installing mods for Sims 4.

Mods are easy to use once they install in the game. However, not everyone is a wiz at computers. Here is how to install mods onto your game.

Step 1: The first thing you need to do is go into your documents under Electronic Arts and click on The Sims 4 file. Right click copy and create an empty folder on your desktop. Past the copy of your entire game into that document and label it whatever you want so you know what is in that file. This is an important step because if you install a mod that has a virus or something that corrupts your game, you have a backup so you do not lose your game entirely and have to reinstall it which can take hours depending on the computer.

Step 2: The next step is to go to or some other zip-folder application to download the mods. Chose the bit system for your files. If you know you are a 64-bit click on that, but if not stick with the 32-bit system to be safe. Install it onto your computer and you are done with this step

Step 3: After this is the fun part. Find whatever website you wish that carries the mod you want such as Tumblr, Mod the Sims, and other websites that Simmers share files with. As with all downloads, there is the possibility for viruses, so you need to make sure you have a good virus protection.

Step 4: After you download the content you want, go to the download file to see the files there. Go back to your documents and open the Electronic Arts folder. Under Sims 4, find the folder that says “mods” and open it. If you have nothing installed yet, it should be an empty folder. Copy and paste the package folder from the downloads (the blank icon) into the mods file.

Step 5: Next, open the zip folders (should have an icon with three books) and click out of the advertisement to buy the product. The files are now “packaged” so you can copy and paste them into the mods folder. Finally, when you get into the game, go to settings section and click on “other.” Make sure that the option to use custom content is on and you are ready to play the Sims 4 with amazing and fun mods!

Now for the mods. The first few are life-state mods that everyone wants but the developers have not yet created packs to give us these life states.

15) Werewolf

Watch how you can turn your sim into a werewolf!

To make your sim into a werewolf, you first need to buy a map decoration. It costs about 20000 Simoleans but once you have it the path to being a wolf can begin.  Look at the map and it will prompt that your sim will want to go on a treasure hunt in the woods. Once you allow your sim to do so, all you need to do is wait and your sim will complain that something had been bitten in the woods. Eventually, your wolf-sim will now howl at the moon like there is no tomorrow!

14) Fairies

Follow this path and your sim will become a fairy and cast spells in no time!

Fairies are in many myths and legends. It is no wonder Simmers always want to have the ability can make their Sims part of their world. What you need to do is get the special fairy tree and “plead to the fairies” to save the tree. Once successful, your fairy sim can now fly and cast magical auras on other Sims. You can also change the color of the wings and instead of walking they will also float. The auras allow the fairy sim to either help or curse a sim to gain or lose needs and skills. Once a fairy loses their energy, they need to meditate (as long as you have the “spa day” game-pack) and recharge that way.

13) Mermaids

Follow Ariel and her sisters as they become mermaids and lure in prey.

The first thing you need to make your Sims mermaids is “The Queen of the Mermaids” statue. Have your sim listen to the sad tale of the Mermaid Queen, and if they have a sad reaction to it that is the first step. If they get bored that means they have to wait 24 hours before they can try this again. Once they have a sad reaction, just wait and they will get scales on their legs. They are now mermaids and can change their scales at will. They will now need more hydration than anything and being in the sun as it will dehydrate them. Once swim, their tail will appear and they will swim like a mermaid. When in public, they can use the siren’s song to affect the surrounding people around them to bend to their will.

12) Beg for Money

First look at how this mod works!

If you’re a Simmer who loves challenges like the Rags to Riches challenge, this is the mod for you! Sit around a public area and beg the patrons for money just like every homeless person you see on the street. There are two ways to do this. One is  “beg for money” which is where the sim will sit on a newspaper and beg. The second is “beg for money (“pretend to be alcoholic”)” where the Sim will sit on the newspaper and beg but with a bottle of “sim-wine” and drinks while wailing arms around for attention. Both ways are very realistic in their ways of begging. Now your Sims can haggle people for money by tipping with a skill or begging like most homeless people.

11) UI Cheat Mod

Look at the various things that make cheats easy!

This mod is a good and an easy one if you want to get on with the story or challenge and save time with building skills. Just like the cheat box, this cheat allows you to build up their skills, keep their needs at a certain level, and even level up careers and whatnot with a click of a button instead of looking up and typing in the various cheats out there. For the needs, all you need to do is click and drag to make it as full or low as you want it to be. The only cheat you need to left click with is for money. Once you do that, your Sims will gain 1000 Simoleans. With the rest you need to right click on the function to work them out. This is such an easy way to cheat and there is no more need to type in cheats you may or may not remember.

10) The Dating App

This shows you just how awesome and handy this app is when you're trying to find love!

Managing the lives of the Sims is difficult enough. If you have one sim who is very busy building skills and keeping the moodlets even, social activity can be difficult. Especially in having your sim find the one they will spend the rest of their lives with. Even if they can fill their social bar when they go to work, sometimes a sim life is difficult when all they can do is work, eat, sleep, go to the bathroom, and build skills for job advancement.

This mod allows the sim to use their cell phone to use a dating app. Asking other SimsSims out on dates is a hassle. You need to build up their relationship enough to do it and when it happens, it’s even harder to find time for the date itself. This app allows a sim to go on a random blind date with a man or a woman or go on a traditional date after finding someone else. This is so helpful for finding love in The Sims.

 9) Experiences

This simmer shows you how experiences can live on with your sim even after it has passed them by.

Do you feel like the emotions that come with the Sims 4 are only there to help certain things happen? Like death? This mod allows the Sims to keep certain emotions from events and keep them as time goes on. It is closer to real life because if someone dies that emotion of sadness seems to go away for a little while and then suddenly disappear. This mod allows the sim to stay in mourning while having other emotions. Just one more reason to feel like the Sim is a more real-life feeling to this game where you play with life.

8) Zodiac Traits

Watch this family show off what it really is like to be an Astrological sign!

Each zodiac sign has a distinct personality. So why can’t the Sims have these traits too? In previous games, you could use certain signs for the Sims and they helped with personality…. Slightly. This mod allows the Sims to behave more like a true version of their sign. It also saves you from having to choose only three traits out of a lot of others that make sense for the Sim.


Watch the wonders of the Sorcerer’s mod!

Do you miss the use of powers in previous Sims games and can’t wait for the developers to bring witches back? This mod allows you to use powers and allows your Sim to be a sorcerer. This mod comes in the form of a new trait you can use when creating your Sim.  One interesting thing you can do is start fires from nothing just by “warming self” after clicking on the ground. Two other things are that you can “cleanse self” which makes the hygiene instantly go up and put other Sims to sleep just by going to the mischief category. It’s only a few things but can make a big difference in the gameplay.

6) Electromaniac Trait

Your Sims can enjoy the effects of lightening even longer!

This mod is only available if you have the Sims 4 Seasons.  From the beginning, all the Simmers had hoped that lightning could give the Sims powers. It only became a temporary thing that did not last long after being struck by lightning. This trait allows your Sim to have the powers of lightning. This trait will dwindle down and exhaust the sim, but they can summon lightning, so that will instantly recharge them. Other than summoning lightning, these Sims can also attack other Sims with it leaving them in a confused state and may cause death by electrocution later on. They also have another ability that allows them to kill a family member with a powerful bolt of lightning. Yay for more ways to kill Sims!

5) Social Activities

Explore more social activities you DON’T have to follow your Sims on!

This is another mod that lets the simmer do more things with other Sims while others do what they want. With this mod, you can stay on the lot while Sims go out and do social activities you would usually have to go with them to. All those notifications of friends asking the Sims to go to a certain place taking time out of your progress with other Sims. You no longer have to deal with that with this if you have this mod. Just send them on their way while you work on the other Sims.

4) Farming

Explore living independently from society!

If you love having the Sims live an eco-friendly and farming life, this is perfect for you. They have upgraded gardening since Seasons has come out and pets have become a normal thing. Unfortunately, we still do not have horses or any other farming animals, but this mod helps you lead your sim to live an eco-friendlier life. There are so many mods that allow you to make a farm.  There are custom harvestable, canning, a candle-making table, animals (decoration only, unfortunately,) and various traits such as the homesteader, the green thumb, farmer, and eco-friendly traits. With these mods, an independent living life is more doable on the Sims.

3) 8 New traits for children

More traits than just the boring base game ones!

There are so many traits for adults, but there are only so many for children. This mod gives an additional 8 traits for children. There had always been such a lack when it comes to traits for children while teens all the way to elders can get all of them. These traits help the child grow in various ways and act more like well… a child! These traits are bold, fretful, giggle meister, rocket, sensitive, sleuth, sweet, tattletale. These traits will make the children a lot more realistic and sometimes easier or harder to handle.

2) 100+ new trait

Look through the various different traits you can use with this mod!

If you feel like the current traits are not enough for you, this mod installs 100 new traits into your game. These traits will bring you so many more options for the characters you create. There are so many useful traits that there are too many to mention in this article. It is available on the mod the Sims website where they are known for safe files. There is no reason not to try this mod out.

1) New Careers

Find so many new career choices!

There are so many career mods it is difficult to explain in one article. The Sims 4 has always lacked the career choices for the Sims and because of this, it’s a good thing that certain modders have created various jobs for everyday life.  If you have always wanted your Sim to have a certain job but can’t because it isn’t there, then this is the perfect time to look at the various careers that modders have made and enjoy your time playing the Sims even more!

These are 15 of the best mods out there for the Sims 4. Installing them is so easy and its free. As long as you have space, your Sims 4 experience will be so much more fun and you will not know what you did without them! It’s perfect for anyone who can’t wait for the Sims developers to make something new!
