[Top 10] The Sims 4 Best Fantasy Mods (2021 Edition)

The Sims 4 Best Fantasy Mods
Dragons, Cookbooks, and More

Looking for more fantastical gameplay? 

Sims 4 Realm of Magic was a highly anticipated pack but the gameplay came up a little short for many Simmers. Similarly, The Sims Medieval was a beloved pack that has yet to make its debut in the fourth generation of the game. While you can wait patiently for EA to release said pack or improve on its current magical iterations (let's be honest the Sims 5 will probably come out before then), OR you can download these ten creative and expansive mods from these talented modders below. 

10. Familiar Interactions by simsmodelsimmer

Simsmodelsimmer's Familiar Interactions lets your Sim interact with their magical counterpart now more than ever.

Familiars were a cool addition to Realm of Magic, but what the hell do they exactly do? This mod expands on the use of your familiars and lets your Sims interact with them. You can now talk to your familiar as they can offer magical advice and teach your Sim new spells, without the risk of increasing your spellcaster charge. 

  • This mod helps bring clarity to the game by asking Familiars for advice (i.e. they can recommend spells or provide other helpful tips like what you should do next).
  • The recent update works for pets who you’ve bound with as familiars.

9. Medieval Cookbook by Littlbowbub

For those immersed in Medieval gameplay or for those who simply just miss The Sims Medieval, the Medieval Cookbook by Littlebowbub is a must-have for your game. Expand your Sims culinary knowledge as they learn to make traditional, old-timey recipes like Gruel, Fish Head Stew, Raised Meat Pies, Carrot Pudding, and more. The book comes in three swatches and is available for purchase in buy mod, so your medieval players can start cooking right away! 

  • For the upcoming Cottage Living pack, this would be a great addition to add some more “homely” style cooking to your Sim’s culinary skills.
  • Since this doesn’t override any current foods in the Sims, this is a risk-free download that won’t cause issues for your game in other playthroughs. 
  • Some of the recipes require fruits and veggies, making this feel authentic in relation to its historical purpose.

8. Dragon Package Mod by The Kaliano

Create these adorable, mystical creatures with The Kaliano's mod.

Tagging along after the Medieval Cookbook your next download should be this Dragon Package which turns large dogs into pet dragons. I try not to feature CC in these lists, as the options are quite endless, but this is a needed download to enhance your medieval playthrough. Plus your dragon will have all the regular interactions of a normal pet; just picture your pet dragon playing fetch, and it will all make sense.

  • Fits well in both a medieval timeline and in a modern timeline, because who doesn’t want a pet dragon? 
  • With different facial features, claws, scales, and wings you can customize your dragon to how you want, providing endless style and color options for these winged creatures.

7. Occult Hybrid Unlocker by TwelfthDoctor1

As of 2021, the Sims 4 currently offers five occult lifestyles: aliens, vampires, servos, spellcasters, and mermaids. The Occult Hybrid Unlocker eliminates the restrictions within the game and lets your occult Sims become more than one type of occult. Aliens can now be Vampires, while Mermaids can enjoy the ocean and the perks of being a Spellcaster. Give your Sims all the supernatural power in this must-add mod for any occult-centric Simmer!

  • The option to combine occult types opts for more creative gameplay where you can expand on the personal lore of your game and give your Sims a more intricate backstory.
  • This mod makes family dynamics more interesting, as you could have all five occult types living under one roof but still be genetically related.

6. Time Lords by Zero’s Sims 4 Mods&Comics

Our next mod is tailored made for Doctor Who fans. Zero brings us another well-thought-out and unique mod in the form of Time Lords. Like in the show, Time Lords will have certain abilities that will affect the Sims and the environment around them. Becoming a Time Lord is easy, simply click on your Alien Sim and select “Turn Into Time Lord” and your Sim will now have the power to astral project, reverse their age, and form telepathic connections with other Sims!

  • In addition to all the new interactions they come with, Time Lords also get an added boost for performing mental and athletic activities. 
  • Aliens made such a lackluster debut in the Sims and aren’t often inspired in other mods, so it’s fun to see a mod that features these early occult types.

5. Witchcraft Career by Midnitetechs

Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Find out in this mod by Midnitetechs.

Choose between the light side and the dark side in this new career path by Midnitetechs. Become part of a real coven as you climb the ranks and become a powerful witch. This career offers two different branches, with eight ranking levels apiece. Will you deepen your spiritual connection as an Elemental Witch? Or become a Necromancer and summon the spirits of the dead? The choice is yours in this expansive mod.

  • Each career branch follows an in-depth path that will expand on your Spellcasters backstory and define them as a good or a bad witch.
  • As the career progresses, so do the skills of your Spellcaster, making this a perfect pairing for new Realm of Magic users.
  • The White Magic and Black Magic career paths can be used to pin your Untamed and Practical Magic Spellcasters against one another, making for some fun drama.

4. Blacksmith Career by sokkarang

While we can download all the CC we want, what truly makes our games immersive, especially when playing in a medieval setting, is bringing in historically accurate features to the game to separate it from its modern setting. The Blacksmith Career mod offers just that, a historical and worthy career for any medieval Sim player. This five-level career path takes Sims back in time to when the crafting of well-made swords and shields was a matter of life or death. Work your way up from an Apprentice to a Master Blacksmith through handy craftsmanship in this career mod from sokkarang. 

  • The pay is scaled for historical accuracy, which is a well-appreciated touch.
  • Even though there are only five levels (as opposed to the normal ten), you still need to max out the handiness skill to reach the top in this mod, so each level will take longer and be more rewarding when achieved. 
  • Future updates of this mod are hoping to move the career from its Rabbit Hole playability, to an Active or Work From Home option to expand the gameplay further.

3. Dungeon and Dragons Races as Traits by Emoria

Calling all D&D fans! Looking to bring your favorite tabletop role-playing game into your favorite PC life simulation game? Then look no further than this mod from Emoria, which brings the D&D races into CAS as traits. This mod includes 13 races from the D&D lore including Sun Elves, Moon Elves, Wood Elves, Aquatic Elves, Drow, Gnomes, Halflings, Dwarves, Orcs, Half-Orcs, Tieflings, Humans, and Half-Elves. You don’t necessarily have to be a D&D fan to enjoy this mod, as the unique traits and interactions that come with them are expansive enough to download for any Simmer looking to expand their supernatural library. 

  • The mod is well versed in the D&D lore and Sims will interact with one another based on their trait and what is the customary response in the game, making it an intuitive mod.
  • Each trait comes with custom features that are unique to each trait including aging effects, faster skill gains, and triggered moodlets.

2. The Spellbook Injector by r3m

The Spellbook Injector is the one-stop shop for expanding your Spellcasters from Realm of Magic. This allows you to download custom-made spells and tomes seamlessly into your game to add new, magically inclined gameplay. The mod does not override any EA script, meaning that all spells created by outside modders should be compatible with this tool, making this a must-have mod for anyone who wants to spruce up their Spellcasters and explore the realm of magic further. 

  • Since this mod is intended to allow outside modders to make new spells, downloading this mod will open your game up to a variety of creators and you can custom pick what you add to your library. 
  • Allows for your Sims to learn new spells randomly through the normal Spellcaster interactions (Ask to Teach Spell, Duel for Knowledge, Practice Magic) meaning your game doesn’t skip a beat with the addition of any new spell.

1. Expanded Mermaids by SpinningPlumbobs

The Expanded Mermaids mods are, as the title implies, a detailed expansion on the Island Living occult life form EA released back in 2019. This mod introduces a handful of new ocean interactions, expands on some previous ones, and gives us not one, but TWO new occult forms. Now your Sim can become Kelpies, a bioluminescent sea monster that transforms at night, or a Sea Witch who harbors a Sea Sorcery Skill that’ll put Spellcasters to shame.

  • The deep dive option expands on the artifact hunting of Island Living, allowing you to find kelp (which can be eaten by mermaids or used to turn your Sim into a Kelpie), or find the rare Poseidon's Grimoire.
  • Sea Witches can summon lightning, teleport, and do a whole plethora of spells, and they can earn money for it too!
  • Both new occult forms are fun, and a wicked expansion to your gameplay, bringing a sinister twist to the easy-going lifestyle of Island Living.
