As it currently stands The Sims 4 does not have any way to manipulate the terrain on lots, but thankfully TwistedMexican has created a fantastic alternative. Although it doesn’t allow the user to change the terrain in whatever way they want it’s still amazing, basically you’re given loads of items which bump up the terrain, lower it down and even walls with realistic textures that blend well from floor to floor.
Head on over to TwistedMexican’s Reddit post to learn how to use and download this brilliant mod.
So terrain tools obviously don’t exist in Sims 4, and they probably won’t. I want to get this out of the way and say this is not a full terrain tool. Well then what is it you might ask? It’s a (very large) set of terrain objects that with some skillful building can give you the aesthetic of terrain modification.
I know we’d all rather have functional build tools but unfortunately I’ve become very familiar with the engine’s terrain setup and while it’s not impossible, the engine is not currently setup with terrain modification in mind at all – so I would be very surprised if Terrain Tools ever come to the Sims 4. So my aim is to give us the next best thing, the illusion of terrain tools. Now that that’s out of the way…
I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who has a house set on uneven terrain. I felt that even if we couldn’t have full fledged terrain tools, we deserved something to break up the dull 2D nature of the Sims 4 worlds. This object pack offers near infinite combinations for terrain, albeit with a bit of creativity. I hope you guys enjoy the pack as much as I enjoyed making it.
