About Townies in Sims 4
The Sims 4 is a video game that simulates the real world. It’s filled with neighborhoods, cities, and suburbs, where Sims live and prosper. Our playable Sims don’t share their world with nobody, and we call the surrounding NPC Sims “townies.” Townies are inseparable parts from the gameplay, and we shouldn’t “delete” them. But, without a mod, the townies in Sims 4 are simply… not great.
What do I mean by this?
Well, NPCs, like in any other game, are computer-generated characters that perform a specific set of actions. Their looks are also randomly generated, so townies often feel artificial and “robotic” as neighbors. We want to be surrounded by Sims that are unique and look great, so our own Sims can meet and enjoy their neighbors.
But is there a mod that improves townies in Sims 4?
Yes, but to some extent. Let’s check it out.
Sims 4 Townies Mod: an Overview
The townies mod that I always use in Sims 4 is called The Landgraab Family. And as its name suggests, it’s actually a mod that introduces a new family of Sims into your neighborhood. This family is much better than your regular townies, so it’s always worth checking it out.
This mod was created by Tova (nomorebadtownies), and it’s very popular among the Sims 4 community.
If you like the mod, you could also support the creator on his Patreon page.
Now, let’s see the Landgraab family in greater detail!
The Landgraab Family
The Landgraab family is a family of three – mom, dad, and a male child. All three of them look great, classy, and distinguished, like proper intellectuals. The mom is called Nancy Landgraab, the dad Geoffrey Landgraab, and the son Malcolm Landgraab.
- Nancy Landraab – a business person with a lot of well-established connections. She’s a workaholic that likes martinis a bit too much. She’s also materialistic, and her family name is well known and respected!
- Geoffrey Landgraab – is a great-looking doctor coming from a long family line of doctors. He loves his son and listens to classical music. But he also likes to play video games and read books.
- Malcolm Landgraab – is a selfish and narcissistic individual. He is charismatic, but he is a bit spoiled too. He also likes to become a DJ.
Keep in mind that these 3 Sims are created with a bunch of different Sims 4 DLCs. This means that you’ll need to own these packs first if you want the mod to work in your game.
Here’s a list of all Sims 4 expansion, game, and stuff packs you’re going to need for the townies mod:
- Get to Work
- Get Together
- Cats and Dogs
- Get Famous
- Island Living
- Eco Lifestyle
- Discover University
- Cottage Living
- Spa Day
- Dream Home Decorator
- Vintage Glamour
- Tiny Living
You need these packs because the three Landgraab Sims use hairstyles, clothes, or other things that come from these Sims 4 DLCs.
And that’s all there is to know about this Sims 4 townies mod and the Landgraab family. You get 3 new Sims that can spice up your gameplay and introduce new ways of living in your neighborhood. If you like their characters, you can send your Sim to meet them and eventually become close friends. If not, you can simply add them to increase the richness and depth of your world.
