Today I will be talking about custom content for The Sims 4 and where to find it. I’ll also go over why Tumblr is useful for cc shopping too.
One of the most frequently asked questions in the Sims community amongst simmers is “Where do you get your cc from?” or “Where can I find… (WCIF)”
Almost half of the replies can either be answered by saying, “On Google images, Tumblr and The Sims Resource.” Up until recently, one of the most popular and reliable sites to use for finding custom content was LanaCCFinds, there are numerous different categories for whatever your cc needs, however, due to too many tumblr complications, the blog has been retired.
So, unfortunately they no longer update their website which has caused many simmers to feel lost and unsure about to where they can get cc from.
The good news is there are still a lot of great tumblr blogs and non-tumblr sites where trusted creators upload their custom content.
Here is a list of a few CC Finds Sites that I know of:
(of course, there are many more out there)
- LanaCCFinds (hasn’t been updated in a few months but does have a nice archive of older content)
- Simsdom (There is a lot of controversy around this site, but you can find amazing and respected creators who upload their own content here, particularly alpha cc – for all my fellow alpha hair and clothes lovers.)
If I missed your favorite cc finds blog, drop it in the comments.
Let’s talk about Tumblr
Tumblr can be used with or without having an account. If you don’t have a Tumblr account I would highly recommend getting one. It’s a great platform to discover new simmers and creators. You can follow all your favorite creators and see what’s new and nearly all of these CC finds sites are on Tumblr, so you’ll always be updated with the latest content.
If you don’t have time to download immediately, you can like or reblog posts to come back to. It’s really simple and easy to use and honestly one of the best platforms for discovering all kinds of cc, be it alpha, maxis match, build/buy. Anything!
The best tags to use for searching new custom content on tumblr are:
#ts4cc #ts4ccmm #s4cc #s4mmcc #sims 4 cc #s4ccmm
And anything similar (yes you can put spaces in-between hashtags on tumblr and it still works)
That covers the basics. If you have any questions regarding using tumblr or would like to know more, don’t forget to leave a comment below and let me know! You can find me on tumblr here –Simanoid.
Until next time, Simmers.
Dag Dag ;)
