Always check for updates to your mods after patches. Even if a mod seems to work, sometimes it still needs updated. Here’s some info and links to help you keep your mods up-to-date:
- Mod the Sims – If you download mods from MTS, there’s a very easy way to see if you have the latest version of any mod that you downloaded from there:
- Click on My Links in the upper-right corner and select My Downloads. This shows a list of everything that you’ve downloaded from MTS, including when it was last updated and if you have the latest update. Very handy!

❗ Never download mods from sites that host other people’s work without the creators permission. It’s disrespectful to the original creators to support sites like that because they try to profit from it by making you pay to not wait for the file that they didn’t even create. Plus, they’re not guaranteed working versions.
No new Creator News for January. Please check previous Monthly Mod News posts for news that still applies.
Please keep in mind that this may not be a complete list. Also, if the same mod is created by two different modders, the one created first will be listed.
❗ Please note that installing 3rd party content may cause problems with your game. It is a good idea to properly research the use of mods and custom content before putting them into your game.
❗ While EA unofficially supports the modding community, they will not be held liable should any 3rd party content damage your PC or game.
❗ This list is here for informational purposes only. SimsVIP does not assume any liability should 3rd party content damage your PC or game.
