The Sims has always allowed you to toy with your creations’ lives in sickly satisfying ways. But this new mod helps you mess with them in a new, insane, slightly entertaining manner. Your Sims can now take a hit from a bong. A new mod for “The Sims 4” lets players equip their avatars with the “drug dealer” trait, which allows them to buy, sell and use drugs like weed, cocaine and MDMA. They can also experience the highs and lows of drugs like dealing with addiction and overdoses. The mod was created by an amateur coder, who now racks in $6,000 a month from donations through his company “Basemental.”
He stated “It started with me figuring out how to make a Sim walk over to some lines of cocaine. Then I figured out I could boost their confidence after [Sims] snorted the lines.”
The company promises to supply “functional drugs for The Sims 4,” though Sims 4 is available for kids as young as 12 years old. But so far, Basemental has only received one complaint. Sims are known to slip into dark narratives in the mod, turning to the sex trade or pickpocketing, so obviously is that has pretty heady implications.
