  • Versions 0.25.1 and later only work with The Sims 4 v1.90 or later patches
  • Versions 0.23.1 and later only work with The Sims 4 v1.84 or later patches
  • Versions 0.6.1 and later only work with The Sims 4 v1.68.154.1020 or later patches
  • Versions 0.2.1 and later only work with The Sims 4 v1.54.120.1020 or later patches

With The Sims 4 Multiplayer Mod, you can play The Sims 4 real-time over the network and “live together” with other players in the same household. See what the others are doing, interact with them, and have fun together!

What does this mod do?
  • This mod allows multiple players to play together with the same save file at the same time over the local network. It's a full script mod packaged with a server application that should be run on one of the PCs participating in the game.

Conflicts
  • There are currently no known conflicts with other mods. (It might conflict with other full script mods though.) Important thing is to have all players the same set of mods/EPs.

How to install

It is necessary to already have a save file with all the Sims created, the house should be built, and all the necessary items should be bought beforehand since currently only Live mode is supported, build & buy mode are in experimental phase. (features might work but there is no guarantee) It is also important to have a save with time paused.

One of the PCs will act as a server and should do the following additional steps:
1. Start the launcher
2. Host a game by selecting an already created save file
3. Start The Sims 4, load the save file and enter your household
4. You should see a notification verifying your game has successfully connected to the server.

The other PC will act as remote client and should do the following additional steps:
1. Start the launcher
2. Join a game by entering the IP address of the host player (displayed in the launcher on the host machine)
3. Start The Sims 4, load the save file and enter your household
4. You should see a notification verifying your game has successfully connected to the server.

At this point you are all set up, feel free to start the time and enjoy the multiplayer The Sims 4 experience! (please note that only the server’s player can control the time)

Is this mod based on other mods? Is it safe to play with the mod?
  • While there are broken multiplayer mods out there, this one is written from scratch and it yields no security vulnerabilities. (If you don't trust it, you can still disconnect your PCs from the internet while you play on LAN.) There are some people out there who claim this mod is based on existing code or has security issues, we've asked them many times to do a developer talk about it, never received any real arguments.

I agree. I have watched the video and read a bunch of stuff about it, and they seem VERY coy about this fact. Almost like they're trying to hide that part or something. And it's like $15 too. I was gonna play with my bro, but after seeing the sneakiness of this, and the fact it seems a bit overpriced, I'll pass.

You can use Hamachi or other VPN solutions to play online with the public versions, feel free to join our Discord server to get help with that, but maintaining the online servers does cost money, unfortunately.

If you're comfortable doing so, you can open the port 7654 to host your "LAN" server over IP. I honestly do find it quite sus that the mod authors do not make this public knowledge, had to go into resource monitor to find the ports for my self and my friends.

There are multiple videos and guides on YouTube and Discord about setting up port forwarding and/or VPN to use with S4MP.

Help! I always get an "Join Game Failed" message when I try S4MP over LAN. The IP address is always right and we use the same exact save file and we're both connected to the internet. My sister hosts from her pc and I try to join from my Mac. Any solutions?
