What is a Sims 4 Open world?

Firstly Open World Brookheights is an additional world that is obtainable as downloadable content, to add to your Sims4 game. Open world Brookheights is like a new country that attaches to your game, however, The Sims 4 Get to Work and The Sims 4 City Living are required for it to be playable. Within this world, you will find many many attractions that are quite different from the Sims4 Base game. However, It will be a whole new adventure, with cars, airports, and a story mode. It was created by Simmer Arnie, who lost his job due to Covid-19 and he spent his newfound freedom creating it.

Here is a link to download this content.

The Game is currently being updated (May 22nd 2022) and the link will be active again very soon.

How does it work?

Within Sims4 Openworld Brookheights space, you can choose between Story Mode or import the World.
Therefore you can play the Story Mode using the custom “Brookheights – Story Mode” or
import the world in one of your save files.
This world is not like other worlds in the Sims 4. An “Open World” is a large area in a game that doesn’t require loading screens, you can freely move around this playable area.
However there is a difference between this mod and the Sims 3 kind of open worlds, so don’t expect it to be the same. For instance, Brookheights has many venues that are placed off-lot in an expandable 360×360 playable area, around a 50×50 Active Lot in the middle of
the world. The active lot, you can build on.

What new experiences can be found in Openworld?

Within Openworld-Brookheights an adventure begins. One of the main aspects of this New York City-inspired world. is its story mode. This story begins with Amos. Amos is on a quest to find his origins. He goes on an adventure all around the world to find out clues about his missing
parents, and where they came from. Above all, this is a whole new world with no limits!

There are so many features in this world, including renting a lodge in the Greenmount Forest, going to a musical on Broadstreet, hitting the gym, and even grocery shopping. However, obtaining employment here is a little different, you will have to get a visa! Therefore you will head to a specific building to obtain this. The Buildings are fully interactive – you can enter the buildings, wander around and check out what’s going on in them.

  1. I am interested in downloading your mod ‘sims-4-open-world-mod-brookheights. My main problem is that link you gave for the download takes me to Wix domain??which I am unfamiliar with. Are you able to send me your direct save file, if not can you publish somewhere else.

    • Aileen, unfortunately the creator of this mod, Arnie, has retired from making content for The Sims 4. You can however find a legacy version of the Brookheights Mod along with some of his other creations here on his Patreon page. As we are not the maker of the mod, SnootySims cannot offer any additional mod support beyond that. Hope this helps!
