Is MC Command Center / MCCC a Script Mod?
There are script mods and there are regular mods in Sims 4. Many of the mods you’ll find on the internet aren’t script mods, since they’re lighter and only do one thing. However, the MCMM mod is different.
The MC Command Center (MCCC) is a script mod in Sims 4. This is because MCCC doesn’t build on the already existing code from the game. Instead, the developer of the MC Command Center has written unique lines of code. And because of that, the mod changes the core of how the game works.

How to get started with MCCC In the game?
Once you have downloaded it and had your scripts and custom content enabled, start playing the Sims 4. Go to any household, and everything went well, once you start playing the game, you will find a message in the notification menu in the upper right corner saying ‘’Welcome to MC Command Center’’.If MCCC doesn’t work right away, just restart your game.
To quickly test if the mod is working, click on your Sim or your household computer and look for a ‘’MC Command Center’’ option. MCCC is a safe and free mod and is updated every now and then, so check for updates from time to time to elevate your use of it and update your current version with new assets.
One of the best things about the mod is that it gives you full freedom to apply any of the settings as you like, and every adjustment you make is completely reversible.
All mod options give you a chance to choose whether you want the setting to apply to non-playing Sims, the active household only, only those you play, or all Sims. Besides these options, you can always choose a default MCCC setting, but also completely enable or disable any of the MCCC options. Now, let’s explore the option it offers!
How to Access MC Comand Center in the Game?
There are two ways to use MCCC whilst in the game: by clicking on a Sim, or, household computer. In both cases, you will get an additional interaction button, the MC Command Center. Clicking on it will open a drop-down menu of all MCCC options available. However, the menu you open will look different depending on how you open the command center.
If you click on the Sim, this will open the MC Comand Center called the Sim Menu, which shows all added commands and allow you to experiment more with your active Sim. This will open a new window with data about your Sim (their age, career, marital status) where you can scroll down and choose various mod options, such as Modify Household in CAS, MC Cheats, Flag Active Sims, MC Pregnancy, etc.
However, you won’t be able to adjust general settings. To do that, you’ll have to open an MC Command Center on the computer, which will open a menu called MCCC Settings. In this case, know that the changes can impact not only the household or the Sim you are playing but all Sims in your game. You can also type mc_settings on the console to open the same settings menu.
