More CAS Columns. The Sims 4: Best Mods to Download in 2024

Table of Contents

More CAS Columns is another more practical mod. This is a widely used form of support for people who invest a lot of time in crafting their own Sims.

In Sim creation mode, all options for clothes, accessories, and body settings suggested by the game are presented in a window divided into two columns. If you have a lot of DLC or community-made creations, scrolling through all the items, let alone finding the right one, requires time and patience. More CAS Columns solves this problem.

The mod has 3 versions, which allow for the organization of Sim creation elements in 3, 4, or 5 columns, depending on our needs. This includes all types of elements, also in the case of animals or special types of characters. This is a minor change, but one that can significantly expand our fun.

Better BuildBuy

If you dedicate most of your time to building in The Sims 4, the Better BuildBuy mod is for you. It's mainly an advanced collection of filters and extra features for people making full use of the game's capabilities.

You can adjust the size of the build catalog and retain the previously selected filters even after switching to game mode. However, what will be of the greatest interest to advanced builders is the organization of DEBUG objects.

What is the DEBUG catalog?

These items are in the game files but haven't been officially included in it. They mainly consist of items visible in the game world, used as decorations beyond the accessible parcels (such as columns, benches, plants, stones, or complete building replicas), and objects that appear for animation needs (like utensils or fire extinguishers).

Because they weren't designed for use in gameplay, they may not work well (Sims may pass through them, for instance), but many people still use them to add variety to their buildings or save a bit (DEBUG items are free).

How to get access to the DEBUG catalog?

  1. Open the cheat console - on PC: Ctrl + Shift + C, on Mac: Command + Shift + C, on consoles: press 4 buttons on the back of the controller simultaneously.
  2. Enter the command: testingcheats true.
  3. Enter the command: bb.showhiddenobjects.
  4. Enter the command: bb.showliveeditobjects.

DEBUG items in Better BuildBuy are labeled, named, and assigned to the correct categories, including extra ones not found in the base game version.

Sonia Selerska

Began her professional writing adventure for Gamepressure.com in 2022, but she has always been interested in all forms of the written word. A student of Film and Multimedia with a specialization in Game Design and Development, deeply follows the blurring boundary between these two worlds. Sometimes, embarrassingly, appreciates style over substance. In the case of media, more often than not, goes to extremes; she can never choose between documentaries and horror films, and cozy games, life simulators, and animations. You will find her playing old-school consoles and indie gems rather than AAA titles. Devotes her free time to her love of fashion and art in a broader sense. Believes that the plot is the most crucial element of a game, and the most compelling stories are the ones inspired by everyday life.
