Mod support for sims 4 console

«1
Since more games are supporting the modding community on console as well as PC I was wondering if the sims team have any plans on supporting mods for the console version or even if it is possible as I am not sure how the updating of mods would work for consoles.

    We wont have access to the gallery or to 4K so i doubt they will implement a feature that allows us to install mods.

    You wouldn't want anything more than 1080p for The Sims 4 console.

    Why people on pc have custom content if dont pay for the game and have pirate free version. And all people pay for the game on playstation 4 or xbox dont have custom content. Its very sad and dissapointment. thanks ..

    I am almost surprised EA hasn't come up with their own spin of paid mods like Bethesda has with their Creation Club .

    They don't support using mods on PC for this game, so I doubt they ever will support it on console. On PC there is the warning to use at your own risk.

    I personally dont see us ever getting mods or cc for console, i myself am not a big user of cc or mods and only really do maxis match windows and door add ons on pc but i think it would be cool for players to get the option.

    sims 4 consoles is getting boring please add more packs and please add the gallery

    Feels pretty lame to watch all these cool mods and custom content that I will apparently never get to use for my console... Would be nice to have access to the gallery also. I'm pretty sure everyone agrees we should be able to get mods and CC on consoles because without it you kind of feel cheated.

    I think it'd be very problematic to add mods and custom content. I don't know how it is on xbox, but PS4 doesn't seem like something you'd be able to download things like that on.

    "They don't support using mods on PC for this game, so I doubt they ever will support it on console. On PC there is the warning to use at your own risk."

    They have to use a warning... It doesnt mean they dont support it. They have exchange so people can trade mods and if they didnt want people modding the game they could block it. I dont know about xbox but PlayStation is the one that doesnt support mods. Thats why they are restricted for fallout and skyrim. You can only use things the properties that are already in game.

    @Mccheddarbox

    EA does not own an exchange for mods. Those are all fanbase made.

    It would just be really great if cc is added at least, the game doesn't allow players to be really creative with what they have in the first place, but i guess that this is why we have all of the packs (dlcs) , though this is not enough for me, all of the sims in my world end up looking the same. Just waiting until i can get 'get to work' to get new hairs so that there is more variety. Oh, and the furniture to decorate the houses/apartments with.

    With the lack of mods and slow release of packs is making the sims 4 go a bit stale on console, I need more!
    Live your life to the fullest, don't wait for a miracle to happen, be the miracle to make things happen.
    Sometimes your creativity is limited where you use it most, but you can use those limitations to inspire new forms of creativity you may never have thought of beforehand.

    I think mods would ruin the way the game runs especially on console. Probably for the best that we don't have it. Honestly all we need is galleryand to be patient for more game content to be added on console. Maybe if you're bored of console version then play it on PC or try being more creative to make it more interesting. There's actually a lot to do so far if you do own the packs that are released on consoles so far.

    I see the answer in your eyes
    But you need a reason why.

    PS4 Gran Turismo Sport game was designed to encourage exchange of user mods car paint, driving suits & helmets etc. This enhances the game in the same manner user created mods do for the Sims PC version. The mod less PS4 version of the Sims will always be a distant second to the PC version.

    Unless some console users become dedicated modders, I do not see that as a thing. The PC has many simmers who are dedicated modders.

    @LOW

    I highly doubt the dedicated modders will just "port" their mods unless they also play the game on console. They are normally just regular people who play the game, EA has nothing to do with the mods or those that create them. Maybe console gamers will get some of their community of players to create mods.
