What is a Sims 4 Save File?

Using a save file in Sims 4 can be a great way to start ahead in your simming journey. Even if you’re not an experienced Sims 4 player, you might be better off using a save file so you can start playing with prebuilt stories and ready-made Sims.

A save file in The Sims 4 is essentially a backup file of one’s entire playtime in the game. It contains everything that one has played up to that point. Save files can generally be uploaded on the internet and shared among all players. You can then download a save file from a specific player and load the game from that certain player’s save point.

Where Are Save Files Located?

Your Sims 4 save files are located in Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Saves, or a similar mods directory, depending on where you’ve installed the game. But generally, you can find save files in your Saves folder. And if you’re using a Mac, you could find it via the finder application. Just keep in mind that if you are searching for mods or custom content, you can find them in the Sims 4/Mods directory. But keep in mind that the rooms, the characters, and lots you’ve created, can be found in the Sims 4/Tray folder.

Downloading Sims 4 Save Files

When you download a save file from the internet, you should paste it into your Saves folder too, so it can appear in your game. Keep in mind that it is possible to have multiple save files in this folder, so there is no need to worry about overwriting any existing files. The important part is to select the save you want to load when you launch the game via the main menu.

Since everyone plays the game differently, there are thousands and thousands of shared Sims 4 save files on the internet. From different collaborations and solo creations, we have selected our favorite 15 save files. Take a look at what we’ve gathered below!

  1. I appreciate blogs with this kind of info but why is it outdated when it was published Nov. 7, 2023? Multiple links do not work including LittleSimsies where the link to tumblr might work but when you click to “download it here link” it takes us to a dead page. I just wasted time trying to chase down links for really old old save files that don’t exist anymore.
    So please fix it or stop being lazy and not properly updating your old blog posts. Waste your own time.

    • Hi there, Bree! We here at SnootySims, are a small group of passionate and dedicated Simmers who try to update our articles as fast as we possibly can. We apologize if downloading some of these save files have caused you a bit of a hassle. However, mods, CCs, save files, and other Sims-related stuff get constantly updated in a short amount of time due to the patches and release of new packs. So we try to keep up as much as we can! So no worries though, we have already updated this article today and everything should be okay for download now! Thank you.
