Moreover, you can use it to enable your Sims to have children, even if they’re not supposed to, or to facilitate a marriage between Sims who may not initially be interested in each other.

2.  Sims 4 UI Cheats Extension: Creator weerbesu

UI Cheats Extension

If you’re anything like me, you probably spend a significant portion of your time playing The Sims 4 by opening up the cheat console and entering various codes.

Well, if that’s the case, then this mod by weerbesu is an absolute game-changer! The UI Cheats Extension mod allows you to access all of the cheats in The Sims 4 directly from the user interface, eliminating the need to open up the cheat console.

Simply right-click on any section of the UI to access cheat options, such as editing a career level or changing a relationship.

This mod is an absolute essential for anyone who loves using cheats in The Sims 4!”

3. Sims 4 Wonderful Whims: Creator TurboDriver

sims 4 bank mod

Wonderful Whims is the PG version of Wicked Whims, and it includes options for menstrual cycles, birth control, woohoo options, and much more.

This is an excellent mod for players who want to add more realism to their game, but don’t want the explicit content that comes with Wicked Whims.

4. Sims 4 Slice of Life Mod: Creator kawaiistacie

life decider mod

The Slice of Life Mod is one of the most popular mods for The Sims 4. It adds a ton of new features and gameplay elements that make the game more realistic and interesting.

Some of the things that this mod adds include sims getting ill, more personality for sims, menstrual cycles, and much more.

This mod is great for players who want to add more realism to their game

5. Sims 4 SNBank: Creator SimRealist

sims 4 bank mod

The SNBank mod adds a new financial system to The Sims 4, allowing each of your Sims to have a bank account and direct deposit their pay into it, among other things.

This mod also includes a new gameplay element that adds a whole new billing system. It’s too much to explain here, so I recommend clicking on the download link and reading through it.

This is one of my favorite mods, and a feature that EA should have included in the base game a long time ago. It’s great for storylines and players who want to have more control over their Sims’ finances.”

6. Sims 4 More CAS Columns: Creator Weerbesu

more CAS columns

With this mod, you can add more columns to the Create-a-Sim screen, allowing you to see more of your sim’s clothing and accessory options at once.

This is perfect if you have a lot of custom content, as you won’t have to spend forever scrolling.

You can also customize the number of columns that are displayed to suit your needs.

7. Sims 4 Life insurance: Creator nickyclem1

his mod does what it says on the tin, allowing your Sims to buy life insurance.

8. Sims 4 Sim Spawn Overhaul: Creator Lotharihoe

The Sim Spawn Overhaul mod changes the way that Sims are spawned into the world. When in a world, you’ll only see Sims from that world walking by, not Sims from other worlds, which makes it a bit more realistic.

The feature I like the best from this mod, though, is the venue Sims, as it means that celebrity Sims will only spawn in lots in Del Sol Valley, meaning that you don’t have to worry about them turning up at random places in other neighborhoods.

This also means that Sims from Sulani and Strangerville neighborhoods will stay in their neighborhoods as well.

This is great as, in real life, unless you live in a celebrity hotspot like California, how often do you go down to your local gym or coffee shop and see celebrities?

9. Sims 4 Education System Bundle: Creator KawaiiStacie

This mod adds a whole new education system to The Sims 4.

The features I like the most about this mod are the preschool feature as it allows you to send your toddlers to preschool from Monday to Friday.

This is great if your sims work, as you won’t have to hire a babysitter, or if you want your toddlers to master their skills.

Another cool feature that it includes is the option for your sims to do school online. All you have to do is buy the special computer and your sim can do homeschooling, which would make for some great storylines.

10. Sims 4 SimDa Dating App: Creator LittleMsSam

Remember in past Sims games when your Sim could go on a blind date? Well, this was another great feature that has yet to be implemented in The Sims 4.

With this mod, your Sim can finally join a dating app. Once installed, all you have to do is have your Sim open their phone and the SimDa Dating App will appear.

You’ll have the option of a specific date, blind date, or one-night stand. It also includes a few other options, so I recommend reading the download page to get the full details.

11. Sims 4 Toddlers at Park: Creator flauschtrud 

Toddlers at Park

Do you take your toddler sims to the park and never see any other toddlers?  This mod adds toddlers to the park, so your sim toddler will see other toddlers to interact with.

This is such a small thing but I love it as your toddler can finally start making some friends.

Which means they can then have playdates and then when your sim ages to a child you can also have them age as well and then your sim will already have a friend.

12. Sims 4 First Impressions: Creator Lumpinou 

This mod overhauls the first interaction between two sims, depending on their traits.

It’s a great mod for anyone who wants to add more depth to their stories and gameplay.

First Impressions mod sims 4

13. Sims 4 Playable Pets Mod: Creator andrew

Do you miss being able to control your pets, like you could with previous Sims games?

Well, that functionality has been restored in this mod, allowing you to fully control your pets and have them look after their own needs or simply see what their needs are.

14. Sims 4 Have Some Personality Please!: Creator PolarBearSims

One thing missing from The Sims 4 is that your Sims don’t really have any personality.

This mod changes all of that by adding a bunch of new personality options for your Sims, as well as for your cats and dogs.

Which when your into storytelling this is a great addition

15. Sims 4 University Costs More: Creator Zero’s Sims 4 Mods

While The Sims 4 University expansion pack is great, one thing that I didn’t like was how cheap university cost compared to real life.

With this mod, the prices of all the courses and classes will change to be more in line with what they would actually cost.

16. Sims 4 Wedding Cakes as Birthday Cakes: Creator  JaneSimsten

Wedding Cakes as Birthday Cakes

Don’t you just adore the cakes in the My Wedding Stories pack and wish you could use them as birthday cakes? Well, with this mod, you can!

17. Sims 4 Homework at Desk Mod: Creator  BosseladyTV

One of my pet peeves in the game is when my Sims take out their homework and do it in a random place, and then they never end up putting it back in their inventory. Well, this mod stops that from happening.

Now, when you click on “do homework,” it will make them go to a desk first.

18. Sims 4 Let Friends Age Up: Creator LittleMsSam’s

Don’t you find it annoying when you age up your Sim toddler, child, or teen, but their friends never age? This mod changes that by allowing you to age up their friends as well.

When you add candles to a cake, click on it and a new menu option will come up, allowing you to age up to 20 Sims.

19. Sims 4 Meaningful Stories: Creator RoBurky

This mod is a must-have if you want your Sims 4 game to be more interesting and realistic. It adds a bunch of new features that make your Sims react more realistically to the events that happen in their lives.

With this mod, they won’t just switch from a happy emotion to a sad emotion. Instead, they’ll go through all the emotions between happy and sad. With other emotions, you’ll also have different stages of that emotion. Instead of just being happy you’ll have different levels of happiness.

There are too many features to list here, so I highly recommend checking out the mod download page for full details.

20. Sims 4 Mortem: Creator SimRealist

The Mortem Mod is another one that can allow for more life like gameplay. If your Sim dies, you’ll need to call for a medical examiner to come out to the scene and record the details of the death and take photos of the body for further examination.

The body will be transported to the mortuary for more testing to be carried out. Other Sims, family, and friends are allowed to come and see the body and pay their respects. You can also make funeral arrangements for your Sim.

The examiner will give you the option of having your Sim buried or cremated. Follow this process correctly, and you can be assured your Sim will rest in peace.

21. Sims 4 Choose leftovers: Creator LittleMsSam’s

Isn’t it annoying when you tell your Sims to get leftovers for breakfast and they pick the mac and cheese over the pancakes? Well, now you can choose what leftovers your Sims have for their meal.

When you head to the download page, you will need to use the search box or scroll down the page to find the mod.

22. Sims 4 Sul Sul Weather App: Creator LittleMsSam’s

Sul Sul Weather Ap

This mod adds a new app to your Sims called Sul Sul Weather. With this, you can check the weather for any of the worlds.

23. Sims 4 Simulation Unclogger: Creator SrslySims

When you experience lag time in the game, it can become very frustrating.

The Simulation Unclogger allows many of these lags to be fixed, such as your Sim’s head bobbing up and down or them freezing.

Both of these can become very annoying when you’re trying to play.

24. Sims 4 Woohoo Wellness and Pregnancy Overhaul: Creator Lumpinou

Pregnancy preferences & interactions

Fertility pregnancy risk & protection & fertility,

Woohoo transmittable diseases,

Paternity testing,

Teen pregnancy module,

Unwanted pregnancy acceptance,

Cheating & being faithful,

Alternative pregnancy,

Adoption overhaul,

Temporary & permanent separation.

It also includes additional features.

Currently, there are two add-ons, but according to the website, more will be added in the future.

The first add-on allows for the termination of pregnancy, and the second adds more pregnancy side effects.

This mod alone can really change the way you tell your stories in the game.

25. Sims 4 Online Learning System: Creator LittleMsSam’s

Online Learning System

Are you sick and tired of having to buy books or expensive equipment that takes up space in your sims’ home for your sim to learn a skill? Well, this mod adds an online learning system that can be used to learn 41 skills.

There is a cost of $75 for children and $150 for teens and above, and it will require a computer or laptop to access it.

To find the mod, you will need to scroll down the page or use the search box.

26. Sims 4 No Autonomous Cooking: Creator Eunola

This is a great little mod that stops your Sims from cooking autonomously.

I don’t know about you, but I HATE it when my Sims just decide to start cooking without me telling them to.

With this mod, they won’t be able to do that anymore, and you’ll have full control over when and what they cook.

27.  Sims 4 Holiday Home Standalone Version: Creator LittleMsSam’s

Holiday Home Standalone Version

The mod we’ve all been dreaming of! A mod that allows your sim to finally buy a holiday home.

All that’s required is the Get To Work pack. Then all you need to do is go into the lot you want your holiday home to be, change the lot type, and then go to your household and buy it just as you would a business.

28.  Sims 4 More Buyable Venues and new Venue Types: Creator LittleMsSam’s

This mod is similar to the one mentioned above, but it allows you to purchase various types of lots such as gyms, bars, and more.

It also includes the option to buy holiday homes, so you won’t need to download both mods separately.

29. Sims 4 IR Divorce: Creator Zero’s Sims 4 Mods

Do you find the EA version of divorce a bit too clean-cut and simple? Well, the IR Divorce mod will change the way divorces work in your game.

Now, when a Sim gets divorced, it won’t be all sunshine and rainbows.

Your Sim will have to first ask for a divorce. Then, once they’ve done that, you’ll get a new option on the mailbox or computer where you can send divorce papers.

A few days later, the divorce papers will arrive, just as they would in real life, and there will also be a cost involved.

30. Sims 4 Know Your Co-Workers and Classmates: Creator Simulated Flowers

Does your sim attend work and school and never seem to meet anyone? With this mod, you finally get to know your co-workers and classmates.

When you send your sim off to work or school, they will slowly start building a relationship with their co-workers and classmates

31. Sims 4 T.O.O.L : Creator Twisted Mexi’s

Take objects off the lot (T.O.O.L), modify them, and place them in locations that are not allowed by the Lot Rules.

This mod allows you to do much more than simply place items on the lot. It’s difficult to describe all of T.O.O.L.’s capabilities in words, so I recommend watching the video below by its developer to see its full capabilities.

32. Sims 4 Resorts/Hotels: Creator Kawaiistacie

Have you ever wanted your sim to own their own resort? With this mod they finally can.

This mod has quite a few features so I’ll just share a video explaining everything.

33. Sims 4 Better Build/Buy: Creator Twisted Mexi

There are several flaws with Build mode in The Sims 4, and Twisted Mexi created a wonderful mod to help fix many of them. One of my favorite modifications is the expandable build catalog, which allows you to view more than two columns at once. Another fantastic feature is the ability to clone objects in debugging.

The final impressive thing is that it enables tab mode free camera in build mode, allowing you to take screenshots without having to move a sim into the lot.

34. Sims 4 Explore Mod: Creator Kawaii Stacie

Do you wish you could send your Sims off to do something by themselves? With this mod, you can send your Sims off to do a bunch of different activities.

You can send them off to learn new skills, go on day trips, watch movies, visit the zoo, and more.

All of these have a cost involved, but I love that you can finally send your Sims off for a few hours or the day to do something fun.

35. Sims 4 Roommates: Creator LittleMsSam’s


Is your sim lonely and broke? Would they love to have a roommate to keep them company and help them pay the bills? Well, this mod allows you to add roommates to your sim’s home.

You can apply for a roommate via the computer and have up to 20, but I wouldn’t recommend it unless you have a fast computer. However, each roommate pays $500 in rent every Friday, so it could make for an interesting storyline.

36. Sims 4 Better Butler (and Hire more Butler): Creator LittleMsSam’s

Don’t you find it annoying when you hire a butler and they just stand there staring into space? Well, this mod makes them actually do some work and you can also hire up to 4 butlers.

The butlers will now actually do things such as cleaning, taking care of kids, and repairs.

This mod also adds some other butler add-ons as well, so if you’ve had some other annoying bugs with the butler, this mod might fix those for you.

37. Sims 4 Chores (Parenthood and/or Discover University): Creator LittleMsSam’s

Chores mod sims 4

Do you sometimes wish that you could assign chores to different Sims? Well, this mod makes it so that Sims can now be assigned chores to do around the house, such as taking out the trash, mopping, and doing laundry.’

38. Sims 4 Miscarriage Chance: Creator LittleMsSam

A miscarriage can be a very traumatizing experience, so it’s understandable that not everyone would want to play with the Miscarriage Chance feature.

However, for those who want to add more realism to the game, this mod is available and offers that option.

Before downloading this mod, I would recommend reading the description on the download page as it includes a few different options.
