Sims 4 multiplayer: how to play with a friend using a mod?

Even though it's not really possible to play official multiplayer on The Sims 4, members of the community have created a mod that will help you join a friend's game. In this guide, we explain how to set it up!

Are you tired of starting games alone and want to share an adventure with a friend on The Sims 4 ? In this guide, we give you some tips for using a mod that unofficially allows you to start a multiplayer game.

How to play multiplayer on The Sims 4?

It's not officially possible to play Sims 4 in multiplayer, but some very talented people have managed to create a mod that will help you play with friends. Indeed, thanks to SimSync you will no longer have to play alone.

The mod seems to be regularly updated, so don't worry about it being neglected like many other mods. However, it must be configured so that your game is as peaceful as possible. We would still like to point out that the use of mods can be synonymous with hacking attempts or loss of data, so by using the mod that we will present to you below you are aware of the risks involved.

How to configure SimSync?

First of all, you will have to install the application . The latter has its own launcher and will ask you to enter an email address so that you can create an account. Many sites were suspicious of this application, but after much research and analysis, it turns out to be completely reliable. However, to avoid loss of personal data, we advise you to create an email address that you will only use for this mod and to prepare a backup of your games in another file on your PC, so that no data problem missing does not arise.

Once you have done all this, you will need to tell the application the path to your game (C:\...Origin Games/The Sims4) and saves (C:\...Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4) that are on in your folders.

If you join a person, you can join them by entering the code they will give you in the "Connect" section. But if you are the host, you will have several things to do.

When you create a game, keep in mind that it is limited to two people and the players must have the same extensions. If you ever have extensions that your friend does not have, SimSync will offer to deactivate them temporarily, while you play with your loved one. Once this configuration is done, the host will only have to give the code to the person who wishes to join the server via the Connect menu.

Once the game is set up, SimSync will launch your game and you can start your adventure with some company.

The risks of SimSync and other mods

The launcher may ask you to open ports through Windows Firewall, but this may leave your computer vulnerable to a number of viruses and intrusion attempts. So if you are not familiar with this aspect, we invite you not to get into it.

Apart from this aspect which can cool more than one, many people have been able to use this mod without problem. As long as you choose the same extensions as your friend, you will be able to play without any problem.
