The Sims 4: Decor with a Purpose

Updated: Jun 7

A collection of decorative items that were once useless.

TS4 Sims 4 CUSTOM CONTENT AND MODS

I have been a Simmer for many years, and based on my own experience, I can tell you that I would still be struggling to enjoy playing the game without my mods and custom content. My Sims did the same things daily: sleep, eat, work, then sleep again - the game failed to challenge my boredom to the point that the only thing I did was build, decorate, play with my newly-created Sim family for a short while - only to do it all over again. For many years, I filled my game with a variety of custom content that caught my eye. Then again, my game still felt like it was missing something... it felt dull and empty. I wanted to give up on the game, but I just could not turn my back on something that I had learned to love for more than twenty years. Thus, a few years back, I decided to add mods. I modified my game with a few custom food at first. A few became a lot, then a lot more - I do not regret my decision because my game has come to life. My Sims no longer mimic robots. They now have personalities and lives that I can spectate from a third-person view. They get thirsty. They cannot travel without a passport. They change their bedsheets. They sweep their floors. They collect logs for the fireplace. They have menstrual cycles and enjoy sex in different styles! Oh my! My Sim families that were once predictable are now busy leading different lives that are pretty impulsive. Now, I am enjoying my game very much. But it is also because of this that I realized that the Sims game has so many non-cc decorative items that are nice but pointless. It almost felt like these Maxis items were just taking up precious space on my hard drive, which would be more beneficial for new custom content and mods. I felt terrible for the non-cc items because I did not use them, and I did not want them. I hoped they were helpful, and that hope became a reality when I discovered iLexSims by chance. Ilex is a modder that gives me exactly what I had hoped for - decorative items that are no longer useless.


Without further ado, let me present IlexSims' Decor with a Purpose.

02. Functional Tissue Box


The Sims 4 Custom Content and Mods Decor with a Purpose

Description

Your Sim will blow their nose when they have a cold, and they will grab a tissue to "Cry it Out" when sad. This tissue box is a favorite of mine. I really like that blowing their nose gives my Sim a temporary relief and not a permanent one. This way, they still have reason to go see a doctor and/or to drink their vitamins.

Description

This mod allows your Sim to change into a towel or dry off to a few uncomfortable moodlets.


I use this mod together with SimRealist's HLC mod, and they work together brilliantly. Once the HLC towel hits zero, and my Sim has not done their laundry, Ilex's towel will now give my Sim's the option to dry off.

Installing Custom Content and Mods

Step 1 Every mod/custom content should be placed in My Document>Electronic Arts>The Sims 4> Mods

Step 2 If the cc/mod you download is in .package format, you can place it anywhere you want in the Mods folder. If it is a SCRIPT mod, you cannot put it inside a sub-sub folder. If it's a ZIP file, first unzip it and follow the instructions above.

Step 3 Enable cc in-game. If you're using script mods, also enable script mods in-game.


Installing Sims and lots

Step 1 Every mod/custom content should be placed in My Document>Electronic Arts>The Sims 4>Tray

Step 2 If it's a ZIP file, first unzip it and follow the instructions above.

Step 3 Enable cc in-game. If you're using script mods, also enable script mods in-game.

Step 4 Go to your Sims 4 Gallery in the game and look for your Sims or the lots you had just installed. If you cannot find them, you might need to enable your custom content in the gallery.


NOTE: After each patch, the game will automatically disable custom contents; you have to enable it

in-game again.
