Sims 4 Has Mod Support

The Sims 4

Some new news on the famous people-sim is that it will have built-in mod support right out of the box. I’m sure they will continue to sell new mesh-based models and items through an in-game store, but the ability to mod and tweak the game comes with the game – something very few games can say in the current day of micro-transactions and in-game purchases.

The people over at have the scoop:

Everything the community makes is astounding to us, super inspiring, and it is interesting to see what people come up with. Please continue doing it as we want to be able to encourage and foster that creativity because it’s so important to what The Sims means to everyone.

We cannot officially support and screen everything that comes out, so it is very important to us that we set up a good foundation that can help the community manage what they’re creating, and communicate to other people how to responsibly get involved in the modding and creating community.

• Directory for Mods in the user data folder.

• Custom Content Technology Document with data formats that will help creators avoid conflict with what has been done in the game.  This document will be expanded on as we go along.

• Dedicated Modding Section section on The Sims 4 Official Forums for feedback, discussion, and issues.

• Game options panel contains section for mods. (Script and Non-Script)


GTA V For PC This Fall

The news we knew would be announced, it was just a matter of when: GTA V is coming out this fall for PC. It’s also coming out at the same time for XBox One and Playstation 4. It’s going to have some added features for the newer console platforms and for the PC such as denser traffic, better lighting and more flora. The wait has sucked, sure – but without the limitations of last-gen consoles impeding the gameplay and graphics, we should be in for a treat.


EA Shows off Sims 4

EA has been showing off some Sims 4 features the past couple days with videos on Youtube. First up a few days ago was the character creator being showcased followed up by a video yesterday of the new features in build-mode. All in all it looks like a pretty good improvement from the features found in Sims 3. Those of you who are a fan of the people-simulator – will you be picking this up when it comes out?
