How to Install Mods in The Sims 4

When it comes to installing mods into The Sims 4, the process is straightforward. Similarly to any other mod you install, you will need to download the Zip File from the Slice of Life Mod Page first and extract the files once the download is complete. After this, open The Sims 4 file on your PC, and place the extracted files into the mods folder. They cannot be placed anywhere else. Otherwise, the mod will not install into the game properly. Additionally, you will need to have the game closed for the mod to be implemented.

The best way to check if your mods have been correctly installed is by opening the game, heading to settings>game options>other, and look for the section labeled “Enable Custom Content and Mods” and “Script Mods Allowed” and ensure they are both ticked. Underneath these boxes, you’ll be able to press a button labeled ‘View Custom Content,’ and you should see the file name, signifying the mod has been installed correctly.
