If you are looking for information about custom Sims material, there's a good chance that you've also heard of Custom content or, more briefly, CC. If I have never heard or read these two terms, I assure you immediately: it is exactly the same, but expressed under different names.

You are probably wondering, in essence, what is meant by these terms. Well the custom material is just a user-created content and not by the game developer (Maxis). In other words, it's about unofficial content that fans of the game create and share with everyone.

 Would you like to know if they are legal and compatible files? Certainly yes. Maxis offers the possibility for The Sims PC players to insert personalized content with almost total security.

I use the term almost because, although The Sims developers officially allow you to add custom content, some of them, precisely because they come from unofficial sources, could harm the game or cause a malfunction. For this reason, I invite you to continue with the CC integration only if you are really ready to take this risk and carefully following the suggestions I am about to give you.

Custom content for The Sims 4 PC

Now that I've talked in more detail about custom stuff for The Sims and the risks associated with installing it, you're ready to go through the procedure on how to activate them. So let's start from the most recent version of The Sims for PCs, by viewing How to download custom content for The Sims 4.

Where to get content for The Sims 4

All the personalized material that you can install in your copy of The Sims 4 is freely available on the Web. There are many different sources of content, since anyone who can create them can make them available on the Web.

But be careful: for this reason, I advise you not to indifferently trust the sites you find. Otherwise you run the risk of downloading harmful material to your device. Try to aim alone Reference sites of this world, which can be considered as generally safe.

As an alternative to the sites above, I invite you to follow content creators to your blogs and accounts. tumblr. To find personalized content on this social platform, widely used by The Sims modders, connected to the main Tumblr page. Click on search bar which is at the top. And writes "The Sims 4 custom content", to see all the content published on the platform.

Unfortunately, given the diversity of sources and the frequent updates these platforms receive, I can't be specific on the precise steps to download them. For example, on Tumblr just click on the content images to download and look for the corresponding button Download.

Finally, I warn you that some of the sites I have recommended require registration before you can download the packages. So press the entry to crear una cuenta and enter the requested information (for example, e-mail and password).

Install custom content in The Sims 4

The custom content installation procedure for The Sims is not always the same. As you have probably noticed, CCs can be distributed in different formats. More exactly, there are three types of packages of these contents.

The most common type of package is format marking .package, used for content like hair, clothing, accessories and furniture sets. There's also bundle lots , which include land and houses. Finally there gallery creations and script.

The good news is that the installation procedures for these three package categories do not differ much. As you will see, just proceed to correct lotus storage to install them well.

Therefore, the installation procedure begins. Opening with your decompression program the downloaded CC File: inside you will find one or more formatted files .package or in formats .ts4script, .bpi, .blueprint o .trayitem. In addition to these formats, within the packages you can find text files . Txt o images.  All of these are insignificant as they only contain additional information from the creator.

Now, keep the package with the custom content open and meanwhile go to the mod folder of The Sims 4. To find the path in question, click on the button comienzo Windows (the flag icon located in the lower left corner of the screen) and type, in the search bar, the term «Documents».

So select the document folder icon present in the search results and inside find the folder named Arts  electronic. Now enter the folder The sims 4 and finally in  mods.

Then proceed by clicking on the icon package that you left open on the taskbar (the one at the bottom that also contains the Start button) and select the formatted content .package. Drag them to the folder mods. At this point, the installation procedure can be said to be complete.

However, if your custom content pack does not contain .package files, but .BPI, trayitem y .blueprint, you must transfer them to the folder tray, always identifiable in the folder The sims 4.

What to do instead with the files .ts4script ? This format contains modifications that introduce or modify the mechanics of the game, such as racing, animations and interactions. Therefore, they modify the behavior of the game.

La script installation it happens the same way it is seen for .package files, that is, they must be moved to the folder mods, with the only difference that they must be enabled separately. However, I will tell you about this in the next chapter of the guide.

Enable custom content in The Sims 4

If you have reached this point in the tutorial, I will tell you that you have already gone through the most difficult part of the procedure. Why am I telling you this? The answer is that your copy of The Sims 4 PC already supports custom content and should only be enabled from the options menu.

To continue, simply start the game and access the Game options. From this menu, you must search for the article Enable custom content and modifications inside the menu more . If you also want to activate scripts, check the box Script modifications allowed. F finally click the button Apply changes.

Perfect: now you just have to restart the game. Thus, the next time you enter The Sims, the previously installed content will finally be active!

Turn off custom content in The Sims 4

In the unfortunate event that you come across corrupted custom content, which can make your Sims 4 unplayable or unstable, or if you just want to go back to the original version of The Sims without any custom stuff, this is what must do.

First try to disable the content exactly how you enabled them, or acting on the menu with the game options. Look for the item in the latter Enable custom content and modifications and click on the box next to it to uncheck it. After that, remember restart the game and verify that the contents have been disabled.

If, despite deactivation, you still have problems, you will probably have to uninstall the sims and then reinstall it, For the complete procedure, I leave you with my tutorials on how to uninstall programs and how to install The Sims.

How to download custom material The Sims 4 PS4

Have you continued reading this guide until this chapter because you are looking for a way to Download custom stuff in The Sims 4 for PS4 ? I thought about dedicating this chapter to the console version to shed some light on the support of mods and CCs in this version of the famous life simulator.

Well, the reality is that there is unfortunately no support, at least when I write this guide, for this type of content. Maxis, the developer of the game, and EA Games, its publisher, chose does not include the ability to play custom content on consoles - For this reason, there is no way to install and use them.

How to download custom material The Sims FreePlay

As for the console version, also for the version The Sims FreePlay intended for mobile devices Android y iOS, there is no official support for modifications and personalized content.

In short, very similar to the activation of the cheats, as well as the possibility of having infinite money, the game developer and publisher preferred to exclude the possibility of enabling custom content.

I warn you that you can browse the web to search Modified versions of The Sims FreePlay for Android. However, you should also know that it is potentially hazardous material for your device. If you've already installed this type of unofficial content, I suggest that you remove it as soon as possible and run an anti-malware scan on your device.
