The Sims 4 is all about customization, but the traits available in the base game can be disappointing. Here’s how to install custom traits.

The Sims 4 is to create Sims with personalities; however, the traits available in the base game may be disappointing for some players. Luckily, talented modders have created many different custom traits that players can use to make all of their Sims distinct and their gameplay more exciting and suited to the player’s playstyle.

While the Sims 4 base game comes with around 40 traits, players can go online and download from thousands of unique personality traits. These traits can range from more specific base traits such as “Diva” or “Dreamer”, The Sims 4 sci-fi or fantasy traits like “Robot”, modern traits like “Instagram Baddie”, and many more. If the player wants a specific trait for their Sim, chances are they can find a custom version of it.

Before downloading and installing custom traits, players will first need to ensure that Mods and CC are enabled in their game. This can be done by opening the game and selecting the settings button in the top corner right. Next, players should select the Game Options tab and then the Other tab. This tab will be the option to enable custom content and mods, and players should ensure this button is checked. It is important to note that this button will automatically disable itself after every game update, so players will need to make sure to re-enable it.

The first step in installing custom traits for The Sims 4 downloads the Traits the player wants to install. It can be done anywhere on the internet. However, some of the most accessible places to download them will already be popular The Sims 4 mod sites. These include sites like “lesimscatalog” Where “thesimsresource.”

Once players have found the Traits they want, all they need to do is download them to their computer. These traits must exist as .package files, and if not, the file folder may need to be unpacked. Once players have all of their “.package” files ready, they should open their Electronic Arts folder and then the Sims 4 folder within it. This is easily accessible through Origin by right-clicking on The Sims 4 game and selecting the option to allow the player to access the game files directly.

From The Sims 4 folder, players must select the The Sims 4 Mods folder, then just drag all their .package files inside. This will cause all downloaded traits to appear the next time you start the game, and the process is the same as installing any other form of custom content. Players can further customize their Sims experience to their liking using this method.
