My Sims 4 MC Command Center Settings

Sims 4 MC Command Center Settings

MC Command Center is one of my must-have mods for The Sims 4. Here are the settings I’m currently using in my game. I play in a style that ALL my Sims age at the same time even while I’m not playing them. I allow them to continue with their lives with certain restrictions.

If a setting is not addressed below, that means I leave it at the default value.

LAST UPDATE – 11/07/2020

Import my Settings

If you don’t want to change all these settings yourself, you can download my settings and import them to your game. But make sure this is something you REALLY want. I play in a very specific style with very long life spans. 

Career and skill gain have also been adjusted to match my long lifespans so Sims don’t progress too quickly. If you use my settings but change the life spans, make sure you also change the Skill Difficulty Adjustment and Career Difficulty Adjustment back to 0. 

Also, please note that you will need the following expansions installed to use my settings:

  • Get to Work
  • City Living
  • Seasons
  • Discover University

How to Import Settings:

  • Download my settings here (MEGA) or here (Mediafire)
  • Place the settings.cfg file into your Documents > Electronic Arts > Sims 4 > Mods folder (or the subfolder you keep your MC Command Center Mods inside). It should overwrite the current settings.cfg file.
  • Start your game and my settings will be used instead of the default. This will update the settings in ALL saves – old and new.

  1. Salut quand j’ai voulu télécharger mon ordinateur ma dit “mc_settings.cfg a été bloqué car ce type de fichier peut endommager votre appareil” j’aimerais savoir si je peut télécharger sans endommager ou c’est foutu

  2. Hi Cindy. I noticed that you have Risky Woohoo enabled at 20% even though you use Wonderful Whims. This setting conflicts with it. If you want the Pregnancy Chances based on Menstrual Cycle and Birth Control to be useful that setting would need to be 0.

    • Life Spans are set in the MCCC Settings under “Set Life Span.” If you don’t want long life spans, don’t alter these settings. 🙂

  3. You call it like it is, and I respect that. The Snowy Escape was just a pi**-poor expansion.

    Imagine — Simgurus are PROUD of what just seems to be lazy and unimaginative work. Maybe there’s no big mystery why the game lacks so much. Maybe people making it are just not that good.

    Or we could argue that TS4 is a successful live-service game (unlike Anthem). Players don’t get encouraged to try out new games (10 bux) but just spend 10 bux more + 40 + 20 for every new gamepack, expansion or stuff pack.

    Also, EA’s success hinges more on game-changers and marketing than on gameplay. If all they need to do is send gamepacks early to gamechangers, and nothing more, imagine how much money they save on advertising and how much profit they get from just making sub-par content.

    Even if Youtubers make videos complaining about things, this is STILL free marketing for EA.

    I also reckon TS3 is a game that causes people to go manic real quick and then crash real quick. TS4 is similar but way more subtle.

    It just makes me wonder though, how many Gamechangers and Youtubers had a mental breakdown and had anxiety and panic attacks, and TS4 + engaging with Twitch/Youtube audience even made it worse?

    I’ve seen Plumbella and Lilsimsie cry, I noticed Vixella looked sick and nauseos, I noticed Deli taking frequent breaks from TS4. So is it really then such a wholesome game if it makes such a large proportion of people sick?

    Oh yeah, and then there’s toxic happiness where people internalize how they need to be “happy” all the time (or tense), and how TS4 doesn’t represent much of an actual human experience.

    So I’m happy you call them out on their BS, someone has to. Did you consider playing other popular games like Cyberpunk 2077? It’d be interested to try out something new here and there, and see how people react. I like your sense of humor. Maybe there are other cool games out there that deserve credit rather than all of us feeding EA continually.

    • I didn’t want to make it seem like I’m better than anyone else. I was addicted to TS3 in 2019. Initially, it was exciting, thrilling, there were so many things to do! What I didn’t realize is how it overstimulated my brain.

      It was also laggy when I played it (and it still is) so my brain just couldn’t handle such stimuli. I noticed that just starting the game made me go manic (after 15 minutes), and then my mood would crash (after 58 minutes)

      I tried TS4 because I didn’t think it would be the same. And it’s not, because it’s way more subtle. Sometimes I’d play and it would help with my anxiety, but other times it would increase my anxiety, paranoia, OCD, I felt cranky and fought with my close ones.

      It was still that unhealthy stimulus, but only this time it was way more subtle and diluted.

      Playing TS4 I noticed this. I stopped having imagination. I just didn’t know how to name my sims or how to dress them or what would their backstory be.

      I also noticed that, at the same time, I started feeling less hopeful about life and more cynical.

      I’d play the game and then when it was done, I couldn’t even remember what I did, or what was an outstanding moment, it was just all hazy.

      Because here’s what’s up. These games aren’t art. They are products made by a cunning corporation. Art inspires people, makes them hopeful, or helps them reflect on their humanity but I never had that feeling with TS4 (or TS3 tbh), It was just something (?) I was using. Though not to be a hypocrite, I don’t know if I managed to quit it or when or if that’ll happen.

      And it shouldn’t be a binary choice, should it?

      Here’s my hope and dreams, and my imagination, and here’s a little bit of my mental health in exchange for a game that distracts me from my real life problems, and then amplifies them.
