How Maxis are helping us to mod 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.
