Custom Content, or CC, forms the lifeblood of The Sims while we wait for new official content from EA. The Sims 4 has the EA Vampire Pack which introduced the undead into the wildly popular The Sims series. However, the lore and world of vampires are so large and genre-encompassing, that you sometimes need some additional community-made additions to really get that full vampire experience. So let’s look at 20 of the best Sims 4 vampire CC out there.
1. Sun Immunity
One of the problems with being a vampire is that generally, half the day is inaccessible to you. The sun’s rays will kill you, and for a being that has immortality, this is a thing to be avoided.
A sun immunity mod brings immunity to our undead friends, letting them join in with all the other Sims at various locations without immediately dying and leaving behind a pile of dust. Or corpse, depending on the vampire universe you subscribe to.
Seeing a vampire sunbathing at the beach is something else, and without requiring copious amounts of sunscreen such as tried in the Blade series.
2. Free Perks
Offering all vampire perks for free instead of requiring perks, some may view this mod as ‘cheating’ but others claim that it just reduces the grind of the game.
You can also switch this mod to just make perks cheaper, reducing the amount of time needed to obtain the perks you want. For those of you who want to make it easier rather than just giving yourself everything for free, this may be a tempting option.
Keep in mind that Tamed Thirst is one of the best vampire perks out there, as it means you don’t have to be constantly sucking everyone’s blood and killing all your friendly neighbors all the time.
I mean, unless that’s your thing, then go right ahead and suck everyone dry.
3. No Weakness
Another one of those ‘cheat’ type mods, this enables you to make a vampire have all strengths or all weaknesses.
Removing the need to worry about those pesky vampire limitations, this mod enables you to live out your dream of being a superhero vampire without needing to worry if a ray of sunlight might accidentally bounce off a mirror and kill you.
But those stories about the strengths and weaknesses were all myths created by vampires anyway.
You can also go the other way and have your vampire be a totally useless weakling that dies at the mere whiff of some silver if you want to play The Sims like some kind of hardcore game.
4. Slower Thirst Decay
If going full ‘free’ perk mode isn’t your thing, then individual mods to lessen the downsides of being a vampire may be for you.
The Slower Thirst Decay mod delays the thirst motive by approximately 50%, reducing the amount of hunting for blood that you need to do.
Keeping your vampire stocked up on blood can distract you from getting it on in a hot tub or finding the next victim to play Mahjong against, and that’s the real tragedy.
5. Constant Conversion Success
Turning other unsuspecting Sims into vampires is a fun task, although trying to do this during daylight hours has a very high failure rate.
Not only does this give you a new blood-bound slave to do your bidding, but you also get a new friend!
This mod makes sure that every time you attempt to change a mortal into an immortal, you’ll win. A 100% win rate keeps everyone happy, especially your new undead colleague.
6. Plasma Pack from Plasma Fruit
Just like in True Blood with their, err, Tru Blood, you don’t have to feed on the innocent inhabitants of The Sims to get your vital blood intake. Instead, you can convert innocent animals like frogs or fish into a tasty treat for your vampire.
However, while this may seem OK for the psychopaths out there, some developers felt that there should be an option to create such blood substitutes from something else, and why not from the Plasma Fruit.
This mod does two things, firstly it quenches your thirst 50% better than the animal-based packs, and secondly, it helps you aspire to be a Good Vampire.
7. Vampires: Stop Pestering Me!
An unfortunate result of the vampire’s never-ending thirst for blood is that they constantly prey on your nonvampire Sims. This means that they get quite insistent, constantly trying to get your Sims in discrete locations so they can suck their blood.
This does get a bit annoying after a while, and vampires will even break into the house to get at the walking blood bags.
This mod stops them from doing all that, and also just prevents the vampires from pestering you all the time.
8. Harvestable Heart Tree
Another source of vitamin blood for your vampires is the heart tree that is planted and then grows heart fruit, which can be picked and then turned into all types of delicious vampire food.
While originally intended as a Valentine’s Day celebration for vampires, it also has a great aesthetic appeal due to the fruits glowing in different colors, but will also give moodlets to your vampire.
In the end, who doesn’t love eating heart-shaped fruit?
9. Vampire Initiation Ritual
Transforming into a vampire is similar to a big celebration, like a wedding (or maybe like a funeral?), and like all good celebrations, you need to have a nice party or ritual.
As a ‘vampire novice’ who hasn’t yet crossed into the underworld, you can use this mod to call the various vampires and human guests along, with a senior vampire running the show to turn your nonvampire into an unliving creature.
This special ritual/event has goals, with a successful initiation ritual meaning you get some juicy rewards at the end of the party. So not only do you get to add another minion to the blood-sucking demon family, but you get a gift!
10. Bright Eyes for Vampires
Vampires have a unique look that is hard to miss, but the default eyes that vampires get in The Sims are not quite the supernatural look a lot of people want.
However, this mod gives you the choice of perfect maxis variations that look exactly like the other styles you can get from the official Sims character creation screen, with some extra added options. With a shining, fiery eye model, this draws the attention front and center.
You can also modify the pupils such as picking a black sclera or selecting cat-eye pupils, among others. These give a truly creepy, horror movie look perfect to complement the dark look synonymous with vampires.
11. Immersive Vampires
This mod helps the vampires and nonvampires get along a bit better, by allowing you to confess that you are a vampire to the other inhabitants of Sim land, generally with very sad outcomes but sometimes you can find the occasional vampire-lover.
This mod allows your Sim to have friendly conversations about vampires, allowing them to try and reassure Sims about the totally not scary vampires, and many other things.
If you’re going to do this as some type of civil rights push to get vampires not so feared in Sims society, try not to bite any necks along the way.
12. Child Vampire Manifestation mod
This mod unlocks a few vampire abilities for the Sim younglings, meaning the virtual children will be able to join vampire society. Not only can they consume blood products in the form of the plasma fruit, but of course, they can drink the blood from their fellow Sims.
Combined with the toddler clothes and child-sized coffin beds dealt with below, you can get a whole vampire family replete with the look and goods to keep up with the undead-Jones’.
13. Toddlers’ Vampire Dress
While we’re talking about child vamps, why not dress up your adorable toddler vampire in some creepy, Victorian-style dresses? It comes with seven color swatches to give some color to the velvet gown.
The gowns are mostly black, which is to be expected, but you can really get the personality to shine via the side pieces that give your toddler a slightly innocent look before they fly through the air and latch onto some unsuspecting Sims’ neck.
14. Vampire Slayer Pose Pack
If you can’t do a sweet pose in a video game to show off your scary fangs, what is the real point of playing as a vampire?
Installing this mod gives you access to a total of 10 poses; there are six poses that work for couples generally as one hunter and one vampire, and then four poses showing a vampire about to get done by a stake.
Inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you can get a bit of cross-series vampire action.
15. Vampire Skin
Generally, unless vampires get their constant feeding, they’re going to look quite pale. If you want to recreate this hungry look, you can use this mod to select a pale, gray, and glowing appearance.
The skin goes from head to toe, also giving some nice creepy bags under the eyes.
Keep in mind that the pale skin will be a bit of a giveaway that your character is sick or a vampire, both of which are unlikely to mean a lot of Sims are going to want to have much to do with you.
16. GPME Halloween Vampire Set
A cosmetic mod mainly focusing on the lips, eyes, and face, this gives your vampires that creepy, undead look that is so in right now.
Bloody and dried blood on the lips, as well as those deep, dead eyes, give a great vampire feel, while the vivid veins and arteries contrast against the pale skin. This effect is made even more eye-popping by the deep contours that can be applied to the cheekbones.
17. Vampire Trait
What are Sims without traits? This trait gives certain interesting perks for your vampire, including being better at romantic and evil interactions, as well as getting better at various tasks such as social interactions, logic-based decisions, cooking, and getting more athletic.
This mod makes the vampire experience all the more immersive, so for those of you who love your role-playing, this is a must-have.
18. Ghoulish and Ghastly Build Items
If you can’t have your vampire live in a magnificent castle or gothic-style mansion, are they really a vampire? I think the answer is yes, but I’m no master of the occult or undead.
Now you don’t have to worry anymore about the answer to the question because this mod gives you access to Victorian-style architecture and objects, including windows, entrance doors and hallways, double doors, and various archways to give your abode a creepy feel.
This is a great complement to your vampire character, giving them a palatial Victorian-era mansion to plot their next victim’s demise or just chill in front of Netflix.
19. Vampire Clothes
Known as Vampire Stuff, these maxis match pack contains many pieces of clothing built for a vampire, including dresses with gloves and stockings.
As a bonus, you also get the ‘fresh murder’ look with smeared and dripping makeup effects for when you just have to show off that you’ve added another Sim to the vampire world.
20. Vampire Coffin Beds for Adults and Toddlers
To finish off the vampire decor, you can’t go past the coffin bed. On top of this being in line with vampire lore, it also comes in an adorable child-sized coffin for the little vamplings.
You can customize the inner cloth color (but can you go past blood red?) and do a slight recolor of the black exterior. Recover in style from your last massacre of innocent Sims while still rocking that Vampire chic.
