New The Sims 4 Tool Allows You to Replace Premades for New Saves


Easily create a base save with TS4 Premade Household Tool!

For many of us, we have created a Base Save that we use every time we start a new game. It has all our Sim and lot makeovers already in place and problems fixed. Any other changes we want in-game are already done in our Base Save. It’s an effective alternative to setting up a new save each time we want to start a new game. And now there is a new way to ensure our Sim makeovers show up every time we hit New Game!

The creator denton47 released the TS4 Premade Household Tool, which is a game-changer in setting up games. First, you will need to makeover the premade sims of your choice. Then, you will need to use the tool to choose the Sim you made over. Make sure to save them to a package file. You can save the whole family to one package file. Put the package file into your mods folder and delete your cache. Then, the next time you start a game, your sims will replace the original premades!

Some notes from the creator:

  • The tool will transfer age, gender, aspiration, voice, skin tone, traits, morphs, outfits, peltlayers, and genetic data. This includes all CC! (Must be installed to work)
  • Make sure not to change the first name of the Sims.
  • The household portrait is the default from the game files. It does not represent how the Sims look in the game.

How to Use the Mod:
