Mods/Custom Content


  • Use at your own risk.
  • If you wish to use mods or custom content in your Apocalypse save as well as your non-Apocalypse saves, we highly recommend generating a brand new Sims 3 folder (rename your original one and load the game, a new folder will be generated). That way you won't forget to remove any mods or custom content when you play the Apocalypse and won't forget to put them back in when you go to play your non-Apocalypse games.
  • Custom Content -
    • CAS items are allowed and not limited.
    • Build/Buy mode objects must conform to the equivalent for your challenge. For example, you cannot pick a refrigerator that has a higher hunger rating or costs less than the cheapest one available. There are a few items uploaded on the FaceBook page in the files section that are legal "apocalyptic" substitues if you want to have the apoc feel to your game.
