In The Sims 3, the community was largely left to its own devices to figure out how to mod the game. Because of this, it took a long time to get off the ground with modding. But a new blog published on thesims.com today talks about how Maxis are actively supporting people in creating mods for The Sims 4.

In The Sims 3, the community was largely left to its own devices to figure out how to mod the game. Because of this, it took a long time to get off the ground with modding. But a new blog published on thesims.com today talks about how Maxis are actively supporting people in creating mods for The Sims 4.

The key points:

  • Maxis have built the game with a mods directory to drop your mods into, so you don’t have to mess about with game files to add custom content.
  • They will be posting a guide on decoding the structure of their files, to help the community to build modding tools.
  • There will be features that will make it easier to add, remove and manage custom content.
  • Maxis will communicate with the community to reduce the chances that your custom content will be affected when they update the game.
  • There will be a dedicated section of the official forums to discuss modding the game and custom content creation.
  • Custom content will not pack with Sims, lots, etc, so you don’t need to worry about accidentally downloading lots of content you don’t want.
