Support

You can follow the general setup guide at https://crowdcontrol.live/setup for extra help with the Twitch Extension, the Crowd Control Desktop Client and other options.

If you have any questions or need help with this setup, please head over to our discord, forum or email us for additional support!

Manual Setup

The One Click setup found in our desktop app will set all this for you, so use that if you are new to modding with the Sims 4!

  • Copy our mod into your games Mod folder, found at ~/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods/ Find our mod here: CrowdControl.ts4script
  • Press Start in the CC Desktop app, before launching the game
  • Launch the game. Make sure you get the “Mods” popup. Follow the steps below to ensure mods are enabled!
Enable mods

You will need to enable mods in your game before you can use Crowd Control. You may also have to do this when the game pushes updates.

  • From Sims 4, go to Options > Game Options > Other and make sure “Enable Custom Content and Mods” and “Script Mods Allowed” are checked.

After restarting the game, you should now see our mod enabled.

Version support

This mod has mainly been tested with the base game only. Other expansions should work fine, since our mod is doing pretty basic things to the game but please report any issues you may run into!

Our mod has been tested on the Steam and the Origin/EA version of the game!

Gameplay

Our pack is geared towards Live Mode gameplay. Most effects will only trigger while in Live Mode.

Other gameplay methods or challenges may be less impacted because of how our mod functions!

Troubleshooting

Force a reconnect

If you need to stop your session in Crowd Control or you notice effects are not working, you will want to force a reconnect. You can “Ctrl + Shift + C” to enable the cheat console and use code “cc_connect” to force a refresh. If you still can’t connect after that, close the game out completely, press Start in the CC desktop app and relaunch Sims.

Protected Sim

By default, the game will set the first sim you create as “protected”, meaning that sim cannot die! This will cause some effects, like “Kill”, to not fully work. We suggest leaving that first sim alone while playing with Crowd Control.
