Ding-dong Simmers! I'm back with another default replacement.

Something that has always bothered me about The Sims 4 is that the neighbors knock on your door instead of ringing the doorbell, as they did in previous installments. Also, the sound of knocking on the door is so low that I never hear it. This mod fixes all of this.

I have replaced the default animation sims do when they knock on the door, and created a new one where they ring the doorbell. This animation works in all ages and with all types of doors.
In addition, I have included a classic doorbell sound that will ring every time a neighbor comes to visit.

CONFLICTS This mod will conflict with any other mod that modifies aspects related to the animation that the sims perform when knocking on the door.

Hope you like this simple but useful mod!

Hehe. I think when EA removed the doorbell, they followed the Sims 4 common "something is not working" feature. I agree that doorbell is looking much vistor friendly. Could come even better with different sounds choise.

Could you include a video, so we can actually hear the doorbell before downloading?

I use BraveSim's Visitor Notification Mod for this. But this is a welcomed addition to it. Thanks.

Thank you! So sick of only realising I have guests when I see them standing at the front door. This is especially annoying when playing with larger or multi-level houses. Amazing mod.

I tested the mod with the last update, the version " v1.79.93.1030" and it works fine for me, maybe you have a conflicting mod?
