Live in an Empty World in The Sims 4!

Have you ever dreamed of living in an empty world in The Sims 4? A place where you can start things from scratch and create your own neighborhood? A place where there are no pre-existing houses or Sims? A place where you can feel right at home and call it your world? Well, that’s not just wishful thinking anymore! There is a Sims 4 empty world mod that you must check out!

Here we’re talking about themidnitetech’s empty world 2021 save for The Sims 4! This is a simple download file that gives you a new save. But instead of having all the same homes and Sims families of the base game, you have a blank world! The lots are all empties, and you get to build everything according to your wish. As the creator says, it just feels weird to play two or multiple different sets, with the same things existing in both of those saves. So, head over to Mod the Sims and get your Sims 4 Empty World!

Now let’s check out how you can download and install this mod on your system, as well as which are the restrictions you’re going to run in!

How to Download and Install the Empty World Mod?

If you’ve ever added a save file to your Sims 4 game, then the Empty World one should go through the same process. But if this is your first time downloading and installing a mod, then follow these steps.

  • Step 1: Download the Sims 4 Empty World mod save file for 2021 from this direct link.
  • Step 2: Extract the downloaded file.
  • Step 3: Copy the extracted file.
  • Step 4: Paste it into your Saves folder, inside your Sims 4 directory (where you have your game installed).

And that’s it! The next time you hop into the game, you’ll load the new save file and enjoy your brand new empty world. 

We strongly suggest you check our Mods and CC guide, where we explain in great detail how additional content should be added to the game. Don’t hesitate to read more about why the empty world mod might not be working for you!

Also, there is one more thing we recommend you to do. Please back up your files before you add this save to your game. There haven’t been any technical issues with it so far, but you never know when a problem might arise. You want your own world to be safe for later use.

As far as the features of this mod go, it’s pretty simple. The key benefit is that you get a blank space to work with. You get to choose which world you want to inhabit first. The worlds are actually renamed, just to feel a little different than the original ones. Here is a list of all the new empty worlds and maps for The Sims 4.

  • Willow Creek – Sterlington
  • San Myshuno – Union City
  • Windenburg Kingswood
  • Oasis Springs – Cactus Valley
  • Brindleton Bay – Driftwood Port
  • Forgotten Hollow – Ravenstone
  • Granite Falls – Wayward Pines
  • Magnolia Promenade – Foxbridge Village
  • Newcrest- Ashvern
  • Selvadorada – Selvadorada 
  • Del Sol Valley – Anchor Valley
  • Strangerville – Grangerville

When you hop into one of these worlds, you’ll notice that everything is removed except the lot sizes. It’s impossible to change the lot sizes in The Sims 4, so this mod can’t do that for you. However, you get access to many lots that are typically taken by the base game’s families, so you can start there. If you want to know how to get more lot space when building, read this guide!


Sims 4 Empty World is a pretty straightforward tool. We use it whenever we need to start a brand new type of gameplay that we’ve never had before. An empty world can mean an opportunity for you to prove how great of a builder you are. Or you can use the space to tell your own story through new characters. Whatever your reason is, Empty World is excellent, and you should give it a shot!

  1. Does this mod completely replace the worlds so that you can’t access the lots you’ve already built once it’s downloaded? And are you only able to access the worlds that are available to you based on the dlc packs you own?

    • Hi there Lindsay! To answer your question, you will not be able to access the worlds that come with the DLCs that you don’t currently have. However, please be informed that the creator of this mod, Themidnitetech, has not updated this mod for the most recent patch of The Sims 4. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for the quick answer! Do you know whether the creator plans to update the mod, or is it going to stay playable only on old versions of the sims4?
