The Sims 4: Giving Elevators a Purpose

Hey Simmers, Honnahoops here. I’m one of the newest Community Reporters to join The Sims Community team!

Firstly, a little introduction. I’m Hannah, a 24 year old simmer who’s been playing The Sims since the age of 11. I’ve just graduated from Northumbria University and I’m now trying to navigate through adult life (any tips welcome).

I’ve also recently set myself the challenge of rebuilding my entire save! You can keep up with my progress on my tumblr and find my builds on the gallery.

I’m really looking forward to getting to know you all in the comments. Please leave me your ‘mods you can’t live without’ and maybe I’ll find a few I haven’t tested.

Functional Elevators

Now that The Sims 4 Discover University has given us the ability to add roommates to our households (hooray), the Functional Elevator Doors & Portal Mod gives us the creativity to build our own apartment buildings!

Modder TheSimmer40 has given elevator doors a purpose and ability to be placed on any lot. With this mod, you’ll be able to have up to three elevator shafts on a lot to travel between your many stories.

By combining the functionality of the portals from Realm of Magic with the City Living elevator doors, stairs will not be required and elevator doors can be ‘locked’ on certain floors for specific Sims.

The elevators themselves don’t have any special interactions and Sims will fade when entering and exiting the elevator. However I do still feel it gives the realism that the City Living elevators were lacking.

Need help installing mods? Fellow Sims Community Writer, SnarkyWitch has created a handy guide for installing custom content and mods.

NOTE: Realm of Magic is required for this mod to work.
