Terms About The Sims 4 Houses

You may encounter the following terms while downloading tray files of houses. First, let’s see what they mean.

NOCC: Indicates that she does not use custom content while building the house.

So what happens if you download a home with Custom Content?
If you don’t have Custom Content used in the house, those items will not be visible to you when you build the house, or they will appear as a different item. You will see a list of links to Custom Content if the build used Custom Content. You have to download the Custom Content in the list and put them in the mod folder.
You can find information about the mod from these articles: The Sims 4 Mod 101 | How to Install Custom Content and Mods

Play Tested: Sometimes items can be unusable when placing items with cheat codes such as bb.moveobjects. The builder of the house states that he has tested the gameplay with the phrase “play tested” and there is no problem.

Base Game: The sims 4 has many expansion packs. The builders of the house write down which expansion packs items are used. If you don’t have one of those expansion packs, items may appear missing or different when you build the house. The phrase “Base Game” is written to explain that only the base game items are used.
