Updated July 28th, 2020 By Helen Ashcroft: The Sims 4 continues to expand and as new DLC is released simmers continue to produce stunning new save files. While not all of them span every world in the game, each one offers something unique for those looking to replace the default save.

Over time the EA builds have improved but many still have annoying mistakes in, such as misplaced doors, off-center windows, and stairs that lead to nowhere. If you're fed up with playing on the same toilet free default lots then these save games are for you. Some replace everything you can see, others tidy up existing lots and one, in particular, is going to evoke a few memories.

We've added four more so there are plenty of options to choose from. No matter what your playstyle, you're sure to find a save file that appeals to you.

14 Rosebud - Strangetown Update

This save file from Rosebud is a little different from the norm as it is inspired by The Sims 2. It replaces Strangerville with a Strangetown inspired world and Willow Creek with Pleasantville inspired one.

Each world has recreations of the original builds in The Sims 2 worlds, as well as townie makeovers to reflect those worlds' stories. A few details have been modernized to fit The Sims 4 style but the inspiration and attention to detail remain evident.

Anyone who remembers The Sims 2 is sure to recognize some of these iconic buildings. Also, keep an eye out for Bella Goth, there's something strange going on.


13 RandomChick32 - Fresh Start Save File

Tumblr user RandomChick32 has created a save named the fresh start savefile. It's basically a fresh coat of paint applied to the regular save. This involves community lots being updated to use items from more packs and sims getting makeovers when required.

It feels original but yet removes a number of the annoyances of the regular save file, including the randomized and crazy looking seasonal outfits. There are also a few added extras, such as new community lots and pets in households.

12 Peach - Little Boxes Project

Tumblr user Peach has created the Little Boxes Project. The aim is to slowly recreate all the pre-made lots in the game in stages as well as giving some townies makeovers. Since there are over 200 lots in total this makes perfect sense.

The first version of the save includes Oasis Springs, Willow Creek, Newcrest, Magnolia Promenade, and Granite Falls. Each world retains the original lot names and includes at least 1 park and 3 starter homes.

11 Simlicy - Simlicy Save

Simlicy has created a save game that spans pretty much every world in the game. It includes both unique creations and renovations that add new touches to your save game and fill in all the empty lots.

Not everything is complete as yet, some builds are still the EA originals, but the file is a work in progress with updated versions being posted to Simlicy's socials when ready. If you enjoy SImlicy's build style you'll love this save file.

10 Teknikah - World of WIPS

The World of WIPS save file is unique in that it doesn't contain any builds or new sims. It is a save file that is completely wiped. If you're looking to start your game from scratch, maybe even to make your own save file, this will really help.

It takes a surprisingly large amount of time to bulldoze everything in the game and now you don't have to. The files are regularly updated and can be downloaded as save files posted by Teknikah over on ModTheSims.

9 SuppJason - Not So Strangerville

If you want to play in Strangerville without having to solve the mystery yet again then SuppJason is about to save you. This save file is absolutely identical to the default EA save, except that the Strangerville mystery is solved.

This means that your neighbors won't look crazy, there are no weird plants and no one is talking about conspiracy theories. There are still a few minor remnants remaining but generally, the town is nice and normal, so long as you don't explore the secret lab and restart the chaos. The save file can be downloaded from ModTheSims.

8 Illogical Sims - Seasons Save

When Seasons launched townies were given random hot and cold weather outfits that look, well crazy to say the least. This save file doesn't touch anything else except these outfits but for anyone irritated by their townies' appearance, this is a must.

In this save file each and every in-game sim has a sensible, appropriate, and tailored outfit for both hot and cold weather. Now everyone can look good, no matter the weather.

If you're interested in townies looking their best then head over to Illogical Sims' Tumblr for more information and a download link.

7 Aveline - Almost Save

Simmer and YouTuber Aveline has released a save file that she's spent around 18 months preparing, alongside her usual content. It's not quite complete but still contains a large number of new houses and sims that you wouldn't normally see.
