Mods..The alteration of the program code of a video game in order to make it operate in a manner different from its original version. Mods allow for a player to add visual or gameplay changes to their games. Mods are no secret among the Simmer community. We asked simmers like you, Do you mod your game? Why or why not!? Here are the results!
“It’s makes gameplay more interesting and adaptable, fixes some annoyances, and offers more design customizations.” - Colleen M.
“I can’t imagine playing without MCCC” - Lindsey R.
“I mod because the reason I play the sims is to tell stories and it gives me more control and options.” - Cammy M.
“I can’t play without mods. It makes the gameplay so much more interesting and adds so much stuff to do. Plus mods can fix some of the broken stuff that for some reason the people making the game can’t seem to fix.” - Emma L.
“I don't have the internet to be able to download, and constantly fix them. I recently got a gaming laptop so I would be open to it but i also don't want to add to the storage the sims already takes up.” - Lexi S.
“No, because I don’t know how to” - Megan P.
“There are some that would maybe be pretty useful but I enjoy the game as it is. It is missing some things I’d like and could mod but there is plenty it already has. Plus you have to wait for them to be fixed after all the updates and such it seems like a lot of work to keep up with. “ - Tonya P.
“No. I feel like the game needs to stand on its own - even though it has short comings - but I'm stubborn and want to play the game as it was designed. I don't use mods or CC for this reason. Plus, I get all the DLC and I don't want to update my mods with every new release. I figure once the series ends and there is nothing new coming, I'll try out a few mods to enhance my gameplay but I'm happy waiting for the end of the series before that.” - Tim D.
“Because I’m on console” - Amy K.
The general consensus
While adding mods adds a different level to gameplay it can also be an overwhelming experience. Most simmers seem to mod for the story progression aspect that the game lacks. While some feel if it's not already a part of the game then it shouldn't be changed. Another hurdle is the inability to mod in the console community. Whether you mod or not we all play with the same end goal, to unleash our imaginations!
