Find Out About The Playable Drums In The Sims 4!
Even though you can play more than one music career in The Sims 4, we’ve never been able to play the role of drummer, have we? We aren’t sure why the developers have never put more effort into developing this career, or at least to give us an option to play the drum set! Well, today, we’ll talk about the Sims 4 drums mod and how you can make it work in your game!
Choosing to be a singer in Sims 4 is easy. All you need to do is select the traits, career path, aspirations, and you’re good to go. And if you want to join a music group, you can do that by installing a band mod.
Unfortunately, the Sims 4 drums mod doesn’t offer a career path and as much depth as these two paths. However, it’s still a nice extension for the game because it introduces freaking drums in Sims 4!
So who’s ready to rock and roll?
Sims 4 Drums Mod: An Overview
The drums mod that we are talking about here is simply called Playable Drums. It’s created by Necrodog, and you can find all the information on his Tumblr blog. But if you want to quickly download his Playable Drums mod, use this direct link to his page!
So will you get drums in The Sims 4 with this mod?
Hell yes! The Playable Drums mod is all about playing the drums instrument. It introduces a new item to your in-game store. And the easiest way to find it in the build mode is this: Function > Decorative > Sculpts. The drum set costs 600 simoleons, and it’s a one-time purchase!
How Does The Mod Work In Game?
Once you have your drums all set up, simply send your Sim to play them.
Now, a few things need to be said here.
First of all, the in-game animations of your Sim playing the drums aren’t that good. Throughout the interaction, your Sim will simply hold the two drum sticks and move around a little. The animation tries to capture the moment, but it’s not as sophisticated.
However, the sound that the drums produce is actually more than great! Of course, the mod works by playing pre-recorded drum sessions. So every time your Sim sits down to play his drums, he’ll actually trigger those audio tracks.
Additionally, you can change the genre that your Sims is playing. The mod contains all the popular genres like jazz or pop, so you can swap between them.
And lastly, it’s totally possible for you to add more audio tracks so your Sims can “play” them in the game. You will need to manually paste them into the corresponding folders without deleting their names!
And that’s all about the Sims 4 drums mod. It’s a basic extension that adds a quality-of-life feature to the game. It’s definitely not a mod that will change the way you play Sims 4. But it will enhance your gameplay by letting your Sims be drummers. And this is especially valuable if your Sims are actually musicians!
