Meet the Home and Land Co. Mod

SimRealist, a group of excellent modders who have published realistic mods for The Sims 4 such as the Banking Mod and FlowFit Mod, is also behind the cool mod, Home Land and Co. The said mod introduces a set of four new objects that help make the daily lives of Sims feel just a little more authentic. Check out everything you should know about it below!

1. There’s Now A Lawn Mower To Cut Grass.

With the Home and Land Co., there’s a new appliance in town that will help tidy up your Sim’s lawn. Yup. Meet the Infinity Cordless Lawnmower, a nifty gadget available for 500 simoleons in Build/Buy Mode. Your Sims can use this lawnmower to help mow the grass patches that will grow on their lawn.

If the Home and Land Co. mod is installed, grass will grow on all areas of grass-painted ground on your Sim’s lot. It might take two days to see new patches of grass (the Winter season might also prevent grass from growing), but once they’ve grown, your Sims can now begin using the Infinity Cordless Lawnmower.

  • Use Lawnmower – Once the grass has grown, simply click on the lawnmower and select “Use Lawnmower” for Sims to start cutting grass. If they get stuck, just click on other patches of grass to continue lawnmowing.
  • Put in Inventory – Sims can bring the Infinity Cordless Lawnmower wherever they want, by putting the appliance in their inventory.
  • Watch Grass Grow – Sims also have the option to watch grass as they grow in the lot.

2. There Are Now Towels For Use In Bathing.

The Home and Land Co. mod also introduces a towel utilization system in the game, through the Totally Necessary Towel Set, an object that is available for 50 simoleons in the Build/Buy Mode. Take note that only this towel set has the towel utilization feature and other in-game towels don’t have the same feature, which we will explain below.

How To Use The Towels

Each time your Sim takes a bath, they will be able to utilize a single towel from the Totally Necessary Towel Set. When you hover above the said set, you will see how much towel usage remains for your Sims (e.g. 2 Towels Remaining). If this reaches zero, it means that your Sims have to do the laundry to reset the count. If they don’t, they will then re-use old wet towels that will give them uncomfortable moodlets. Remember to also place a hamper nearby where Sim can drop used towels.

3. There’s Now an Ironing Board.

Another cool thing that comes with the Home and Land Co. mod is the Ironing Board! Available for 99 simoleons in Build/Buy Mode, this efficient product will allow your Sims to smooth out the stubborn creases in their clothes through a straightforward space-saving board located on the wall.

Your Sims can iron the clothes they’ve already worn, or the clothes that they’ve just freshly washed. To perform the former, simply click on the ironing board itself and select “Iron Clothes Worn”. To do the latter, wash and dry a batch of clothes and once the process is finished, an option to iron the clothes will appear.

4. The Laundry Detergent Is Now Functional.

Since the launch of The Sims 4: Laundry Day, we have been familiar with laundry-related decorations in Build/Buy Mode such as the stack of clothes, the wicker baskets, and the Dabra Laundry Detergent. Well, through the Home and Land Co. mod, the latter is now functional! Available for 25 simoleons, the mod version of Dabra Laundry Detergent can be used to clean your Sim’s clothes and make them smell wonderful.

How To Use The Laundry Detergent

Your Sims will not be able to use the Dabra Laundry Detergent right away. First, they would have to upgrade the washing machine to have a Laundry Additive Tray. To do this, they must have level 6 Handiness skill, together with 1 common upgrade part and 3 kitchen upgrade parts.

When the washing machine has been upgraded, Sims must load clothes into it, and then place the Dabra Laundry Detergent in their inventory. Once in the inventory, Sims should now be able to choose the “Add Laundry Additive” option and select the said laundry detergent before running the washing process. This will then leave the clothes fragrant and fresh!
