Taking pictures in The Sims has always been a bit of a chore, despite the game often coming with its own mechanisms for doing so. The Sims 3 even enabled your Sims themselves to take pictures. The Sims 4 has a new and completely useless camera mode… but it also allows the use of a Sims 3-style camera.
Problem is, just like in the previous game, that camera has issues. It has a tendency to drift away from the shot you intended, and certain elements actually fade out of the way, including the Sims you’re trying to take a closeup picture of, an effect you may not want for the purposes of taking pictures.
Enter the Live Mode and Tab Mode Camera Mods – No Drift & Lower Level! mod to fix the former problem, and the No Fade Sims and Objects for the latter issue. Long ass names, but they certainly do the job you need them to! (There are versions for The Sims 3 as well,here, here and here, all of which I have used.) If you mean to take pictures of your Sims, or of your lots, or anything else happening in your Sim world, you’ll want to get these mods! They’re a first step to better showcasing of your work, or illustrating your stories if that’s what you’re into.
MODs make our games better.
