The Sims 4 is a game that lets you create your own avatar and embark on a fresh journey in which you get to make important life choices for the first time (or again, depending on the individual). It’s all great, seeing an avatar of yourself walking around, forming relationships with other Sims and building a family or career. But the sad truth is that something happens often times that leaves players a bad impressions. The fact that you can’t fully customize your Sims to look like you can be frustrating, especially if you really like the game.
What’s the solution?
Fear not. As it is most times with video games, there is a way around this inconvenience. While the game’s built-in character creator doesn’t always provide the right features to represent you (skin tone, hair style, and others), you can download special mods that will allow you to make a perfect image of yourself.
What are mods?
Mods are files that you download and add to the game so that additional content and features are made available. While some mods come from the game developer, most mods in video games are fan made, by enthusiastic developers that want to have a richer environment in the game.
This is great because you can download mods for hairstyles and skin tones, and a lot of other stuff, giving you the options you need. There are mods that add as much as 50 new skin tones, making sure that you will find the one that most resembles yours. The same thing goes for hairstyles.
Where to get them
Mods are scoured all over the internet, and a simple Google search will reveal plethora of mods and mod packs, which can be used at the same time. You don’t have to limit yourself to just one mod or mod pack, and you can combine them for the best Sims 4 experience you can get.
The Sims 4 has been out for a couple of years now but the game is still very popular and has a large player following. This is due to the high amount of things you can do and that you can pretty much make sure you never get bored.
