Background:
The other day I was extracting icons from the Sims 4 so I could upload them to The Sims Wiki.
However, later my friend asked "where did you get those icons? S4PE?"
I said yes, why? He told me that I should extract all the icons from the Sims 4 because its currently lacking many.
So I did it, 600+ icons extracted across all of the clientbuild and deltabuild files.

Info:
Here are over 600+ icons! They can be used for personal use like avatars or icons, but can also be used publicly.
Just remember if you upload something such as a trait, please credit me.

Flavors:
  • Sims 4 Icons - all the icons for a stardard simmer or other uses.
  • Sims 4 Modder - all icons with their instance codes. Also included is an icon folder for the Zerbu's Trait Factory.

Just A Note:
  • Sorry for not updating in a while. I am unable to work on updating the catalogue of icons atm. I have every pack up to Dine Out. I don't own anything after that yet.
  • Thanks for all of the feedback since the last time!

My Policy:
Just want to remind everyone! If you use my icons for objects, traits, or anything, please credit me! It tells me that you thank and credit me for taking the time to extract these wonderful icons for everyone!

Additional Credits:
The Sims Studio Artist (They designed the icons, so they get the credit.)
The Sims Wiki (idea for this mod)
The Sims 4 Package Editor (extracting tool)
Microsoft Paint (cropping)
Zerbu's Trait & Buff Factory (tool for creating buffs and traits)

No. I did some research and copyright infringement is called stealing content and claiming it as their own. I do not own these icons and they are created by the talented artists at the Sim Studio. If I was selling it for money then yes it would be copyright. This is why I would never upload Sims music. That is copyright infringement.

Beside me blabbing, thanks for asking. The main reason I did this is for convenience for other Sims players to enrich their gameplay or have HD icons for their Sims mods. In that case, they are using icons from their game for their personal benefit.

Can you upload a version of these icons with the instance IDs that they are assigned to make it possible for modders to use them?

I can try to do that, but I won't be able to update for a few days. I'll create a "modder's version" with all the ids.

===EDIT===
Sorry it took so long! Here's the modder's version with new icons!

This is a compilation of icons I extracted from the Sims 4. They can be used as avatars, or icons. However they also can be used in mods such as new traits, skills, or careers.

What exactly don't you understand? Please clarify.

This download is a collection of assorted icons throughout the Sims 4. These can be used for fun or for practical uses like mods.

The trait would go in mods. The icons just go wherever you want to put them and the icon folder can place the icons in Zerbu's factory.
