Spice Up Your Game with Full Edit Mode Mods

Mods are user-created add-ons that can enrich your game by introducing new elements such as houses, careers, and personality traits. They’re a wonderful way to add personal touches to your game, making it truly unique.

How to Add Mods to Your Game

Mods on PC

Time needed: 20 minutes

Follow the simple steps below to bring mods into your game.

  1. Download the Mod to Your Computer

    Begin by identifying the mod you wish to add to your game and download it to your computer. The downloaded file would typically be in .rar or .zip format.

  2. Extract the Downloaded File

    Once the mod file is downloaded, you need to extract its contents. This involves opening the .rar or .zip file and moving the files it contains into a separate folder.

  3. Move the Unzipped Files to the Game’s Mod Folder

    The next step is to move these extracted files into the mod folder of your Sims 4 game. The usual location of this folder is “Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods.” If there isn’t a folder there already, you should create one.

  4. Open The Sims 4

    After moving the mod files, open your Sims 4 game.

  5. Enable Custom Content and Mods

    Within the game, navigate to the “Options” menu. From there, select “Game Options” and then click on the “Other” tab. Within this tab, there should be a checkbox labeled “enable custom content and mods.” Check this box to allow the game to use the mod you’ve added.

  6. Quit and Relaunch the Game

    To make sure that the mod is properly loaded and functioning, you need to quit the game and then relaunch it. After relaunching, the mod should be active and usable within your game.

(Repeat these instructions for Mac. Note: The console currently does not support mods.)

Troubleshooting Full Edit Mode Issues

Although rare, sometimes cheats might not work. There are various reasons for this, but rest assured, every problem has a solution.

Inspect Your Code Entry:

Keep in mind, the specific case of the cheat codes matters significantly. For their effective operation, you must input the enable and cheat codes precisely. If a cheat doesn’t spring into action, it’s wise to double-check the capitalization and spacing in the code.

Experiment with a Different Enable Code:

Occasionally, the code “TestingCheats True” might not activate the cheats in your game, despite being effective earlier. If your cheats stop working out of the blue, give “TestingCheats On” a try to enable the cheats in your game.

Potential Disruptions from Mods and Custom Content:

Your game’s cheats can be hindered by both mods and custom content. If your cheats stop working after you’ve introduced a mod or custom content file to your game, it might be necessary to remove that file. If you can’t pinpoint the disruptive file, you might have to eradicate all of them from your game.
