Just look at the stark contrast that can be achieved through mods to truly enhance your gaming experience.

For five years we’ve been playing the Sims 4 and for five years, they’ve looked the same. Sure, their cartoony glory is great for the young ones, but what about for storytellers?

10. About Face by Pyxis

Go from flat-faced and lifeless to defined and alive! These facial details will help capture even the smallest features on your Sims.

This mod adds on an extra layer of customizability to your Sims. Available in the Tattoos, Skin Details, and Face Paint categories, dapple your Sims with highlights and shadows. Sculpt their faces to perfection and capture that little piece of them.

  • The pull-to-sculpt feature in Create-A-Sim is great and everything, but still lacks the depth found within this mod.
  • Finally, capture that small hint of shadow beneath your Sim’s brow bone or define and enhance their cheekbones with highlights.
  • Create more varied and unique Sims to keep your world breathing and ever-changing!
