Yep, The Sims 4 will support mods

The Sims 4 won't "include every single feature and piece of content we added to The Sims 3 over the last five years," according to its developers, but modding? Yeah, that's not going anywhere.

Sims VIP has recapped details out of a recent Creator's Camp event at EA:

  • The in-game options panel has a section for mods (script and non-script alike)
  • There will be a mod directory in the user data folder
  • The official forums will have a section specifically for modding
  • "Package files will not attach to creations when uploaded"

After word got out that The Sims 4 would not have swimming pools, the team said it chose to prioritize "the features that make Sims come alive," and that there had to be tradeoffs. Which is a funny way of wording it, given that pools are a preferred method of cutting Sims' lives short. I'm not necessarily expecting modders to be able to implement them, but that'd sure be funny.

Your Sims can now 'accidentally' drown in the The Sims 4

The Sims 4 was notably missing pools at launch, though something tells me many of us weren't playing the game then. As an on-again, off-again Sims player, I passed. If you're waiting for The Sims Studio to flesh out the game ...more

Review: The Sims 4

As a growing gamer, Maxis was always one of my go-to developers at a young age. From the original SimCity, to SimAnt, to SimTower, the company was almost infallible in my eyes, and I ate up practically every simulation it had...more

The Sims 4 is getting pools, ghosts, and Star Wars costumes

Pools. Get to the pools! They were notably absent from The Sims 4 at launch but they're arriving in November as a free update. Sim deaths are going to skyrocket. Speaking of which, more immediately, the game is adding ghosts...more

If you loved the '90s more, you'd have made Seinfeld's apartment in The Sims 4

Anyone that can play bass guitar inevitably always gets asked the question "Can you play the Seinfeld theme?" (Duh, obviously.) That's probably why they bought a bass in the first place -- to lay down the groove to the i...more

Here's what EA thinks is worth a press conference

At the EA press conference earlier, Peter Moore stood on stage and showed off various modes in The Sims 4. None of that was important though. This is the most important piece of information to come from the presentation. Behold: buff, shirtless Peter Moore. You're welcome.more

The Sims 4 'Weirder' series tells the story of an incredibly not weird man

EA made a video series called "Weirder Stories" to showcase the wacky lives of some theoretical citizens in the upcoming The Sims 4, and then literally made the most dull character it could. Cribbing from Dos Equis' "Most In...more

You won't like the explanation for The Sims 4's lack of pools and toddlers

The Sims 4 will not launch with the option to give your Sims a pool, or have them go through the toddler life stage, as has been the case in prior games. Presumably, those features are coming post-launch, most likely in an ex...more

Brighten your morning with I am Bread

Even failing looks fun in Heat Signature

Just like with Gunpoint, it's a joy to watch designer Tom Francis play Heat Signature, wonky wrench physics and all, while it's still in development. It's as if he's making the game solely for himself and, hey, if the rest o...more
