Recently we shared a list of CC to help spread body positivity in the Sims 4, and we wanted to expand on that concept for disabled sims and simmers. Just as everyone should be able to love their body regardless of how it looks, everyone should be able to love their body regardless of what it can or cannot do. We have gathered a list of Sims 4 disabilities CC with the hope that more players can see themselves represented in their games.

Disabilities, like people, come in all forms. Sometimes they’re not in ways that you can see, or conditions that show themselves 100% of the time, but that makes them no less valid.

Because accessible clothing isn’t really a concern for vanilla sims characters, there isn’t a lot of CC out there designed with it in mind.

Plus, they’re super fashionable! You can download them here.

There are a lot of manually-operated wheelchairs for the Sims 4, some we’ve even featured before, but electric/motorized wheelchairs are far less common CC. This set includes the chair (found in sculptures) and 4 poses for adult sims. You can get it all here.

Tip: You can use Sims 4 Studio to re-categorize the above object as a chair, transportation item, or whatever else makes sense to you. Follow my tutorial to learn how.

37. Animated Base Game Rideable Wheelchair Vehicle by NecroDog

image 135

This wheelchair is actually functional in game and usable by teens and up. Because it’s based off the Discover University bicycle mechanics the animations are a little off, and the areas you can travel with it are a little limited, but it’s still light years ahead of anything EA has offered to disabled characters in The Sims 4. To learn more about this wheelchair and see a video of it in action, go here!

Sims 4 Disabilities: Poses

Some disabilities aren’t easy to show through regular gameplay means, which is where poses come in handy. Whether you’re telling a story, making a lookbook, or just want to take some pics of your disabled sims, these poses can help!

43. Dance Me To The Moon Posepack by simpeachie

sims 4 disabilities

Individuals with fatigue or mobility issues may have the ability to stand and walk around for short periods of time but need to use a wheelchair once they run out of energy, and are often marginalized as not really needing their mobility aids because they don’t look disabled. This sweet pose pack features a sim who is able to get out of her chair to share a romantic dance with her partner. The download page is a little cluttered with no visible scroll bar so you will need to use your mouse scroll wheel or page down keys to get to the download links.

44. Service Dog Poses by Quiddity

 disabilities cc

A set of 5 poses to be used by a sim in a wheelchair with their (large) service dog. We like this pose set a lot because it combines multiple aspects of what a disabled person’s life might look like. See the other adorable poses and download the set here.

45. Wheelchair Poses by RatBoySims

sims 4 disabilities

A set of sweet & expressive wheelchair poses that include a few romantic ones as well! You can see & download them here.

Closing Thoughts

The world is a diverse place full of individuals with varying abilities & disabilities. Using CC from the amazing modding community, you can bring some of that diversity into your own games by giving disabled sims some representation. We hope this collection of Sims 4 disabilities CC fills the need of disabled simmers, at least until we see disabilities integrated into the core mechanics of the Sims 4 or its successors. Enjoy and happy simming!

I've been playing The Sims since the first game launched way back in 2000 and have been using CC for over 20 years. As a creative person with an interest in design, The Sims games have always been a great outlet for me whether I'm creating a cool sim, trying a new build style, or dabbling in CC making. The Sims really is a wonderful medium for all sorts of creative outlets and I'm happy to share my enthusiasm with other like-minded players!
