Things to Consider When Downloading Sim or Households

It may often require additional CC or expansion packs to make a Sim look the same as their pictures during download.

Make sure you have the necessary cc and expansion packs by reading the descriptions carefully, otherwise you will not encounter the same sim as in the pictures.

if the sim does not use Custom Content, the creator indicates this by writing “NOCC” in their description. It also writes a list of which expansion packs items used while creating the sim. If it has not used any expansion packs, it indicates this by the phrase “Base Game“.

For example, you can download Tray files for a particular Sim, but there will also be a list of links to the CC used in the image the creator provided. You need to download this Custom Content and put it in the Mods folder.

You can find information about the mod/cc from these articles: The Sims 4 Mod 101 | How to Install Custom Content and Mods
