No matter how many expansion packs I own, I’ll add exactly the new gear or kitchen cabinets my Sims need in The Sims 4 CC. As a life sim, the options for possible styles and decorations are nearly endless, with fans constantly crafting their own custom content sets to fill in the gaps between the official game packs.

The Sims CC has a long history, and now that The Sims 4 has been out for the better part of 10 years, there are hundreds of creators and thousands of creations to add to your own game. There are more great CCs out there than I can show, but now I can help you get started with some of my favorite content collections for trendy decor, urban street fashion, vintage hair options, and more. After weeks of hunting, this is the best Sims 4 CC I’ve found.
Once you’ve found some creators you like, you’ll know where to start looking for your next big CC bash. Installing The Sims 4 CC is very simple, and we’ll cover it below. Just don’t get carried away with your CC shopping and forget to actually open your game and enjoy playing it. Not that any of us have ever made such a mistake.
We’ve picked a few favorites for this list, but every CC creator represented here is pretty prolific. If you like the look of the set, we’ve included a link to the creator’s download archive so you can find even better custom content to install. Many CC creators offer downloads from their blogs or Patreon pages. We’ve highlighted the free download CC here, but be aware that some creators offer extra content or first-time access to their CC to monthly patrons.

How To Install The Sims 4 CC
Where is the Sims 4 CC folder?
Here’s what you need to do to install and play The Sims 4 CC:
- Download CC and extract the compressed folder (if applicable).
- Drag your .package file or the unzipped folder containing the .package file into the Sims 4 “Mods” folder.
- The Sims 4 mods folder is located at: File/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods.
- Launch The Sims 4 and open your options menu.Check “Enable custom content and mods” Under Game Options > Other.
- Restart the game and check the “Mods” popup that appears on startup, make sure your installed CC is listed.
Keep in mind that The Sims 4 disables mods and CCs with every update, so you’ll need to re-enable them in the game menu and restart the game after every game update.
Best Websites for The Sims 4 CC
If you’re looking to mine for more custom content beyond the creators and packs we’ve collected here, you can spend weeks and months searching the internet for more. The Sims 4 CC is truly endless, but we recommend you browse some tried-and-true aggregator blogs and websites:
- Maxis Match CC World – Re-records tons of MMCC markers to help you find what you’re looking for.
- The Sims Resources – Surfing the TSR is really daunting, but starting with featured artists can help you find quality CCs faster.
What are Maxis Match CC and Alpha CC?
Many Simmers refer to CC as “Alpha CC” and “Maxis Match”. Alpha CC is designed to look more realistic, often adding special skin textures, eyes, and realistic clothing or furniture. Maxis Match CC is exactly what it sounds like: fan-made content designed to match the stylized look of The Sims 4 original content created by Maxis.
