In the world of “The Sims," you can make life how you want it. While there are several DLC packs for each iteration of the game, one of the best ways to improve on your Simulated Life is to add mods (short for modifications). Mods are user-created content that a lot of games allow players to add to the game to add new features to the game. Mods for “The Sims” franchise have been around for years and range from making changes to the graphics (including the infamous mods that remove the pixelation from naked sims), adding or changing building structures, changing sim traits, and many, many more.

‘MC Command Center’

One of the most popular mods for “The Sims 4” is the "MC Command Center" mod.

This mod is also known as the story progression mod. Unfortunately, EA didn’t include story progression with “The Sims 4." The "MC Command Center" mod fixes this by allowing your sim’s town to progress and thrive without direct involvement from the player. This means that the sims in your town can go about their business of getting married, having jobs, starting a family, and more without the player having to play those houses. The "MC Command Center" mod comes with a whole bunch of other features to enhance the town.
