CurseForge clarifies details about The Sims 4 Mod Hub and upcoming Mod Manager!
During the Behind The Sims Summit event, The Sims 4 and CurseForge announced their partnership to bring Simmers a new platform for sharing and downloading mods and custom content. On November 14th, The Sims 4 Mod Hub officially launched but many Simmers were left confused; where was the promised Mod Manager? Was the website all there was?
CurseForge took to Twitter to clear up confusion and lay out a clearer picture of what’s to come for The Sims 4.
CurseForge clarified that November 14th was the launch date for The Sims 4 Mod Hub but the Mod Manager will be coming on December 6th as an open beta. The Mod Manager will have all the convenient features Simmers have been waiting for, such as automatic mod updates and easier mod organization.
On December 6 we’ll launch an open beta of The Sims 4 on the CurseForge client, meaning you’ll finally be able to use the Mod Manager you’ve all been waiting for.CurseForge
The Sims 4 Mod Hub Website Redesign
In response to feedback about the Mod Hub website being difficult to navigate and visually unappealing, CurseForge assured players that a new redesigned website will also be launching on December 6th and provided a preview of the new design.
December 6 is also the date for the launch of our NEW WEBSITE, which will feature an improved browsing, searching and downloading experience. Check out this sneak peek of the new design:CurseForge

For comparison, here is what The Sims 4 Mod Hub currently looks like on the website:
There’s no denying that the planned redesign is a vast improvement over the current design and layout. While we are excited that The Sims 4 Mod Hub is now available to enjoy, we agree with the community that the website needs a lot of navigational and visual improvements. It’s nice to know that Simmers will not need to wait long to have the smooth user experience they were expecting.
