Mod The Sims (formerly ModTheSims2), or MTS for short, is an online community for The Sims, founded by Delphy in May 2004. Its main focus is on the creation and sharing of custom content, most notably mods. It is also home to forums, contests, and tutorials on custom content creation.

History[edit | edit source]

Its sister site, Sims 2 Community appeared around July 2005. The purpose of this was to alleviate the social threads on MTS2, so MTS2 could focus on modifying the game. However, in May 2009 MTS2 and Sims 2 Community were merged into one site again. This was because staff on both sites felt that the line between the two sites was blurring and disliked having to send people to the other site constantly to have their questions answered.[citation needed]

At the release of The Sims 3 in 2009, they changed their name from ModTheSims2 to Mod The Sims and started to host modifications for that game as well.[1]

Forums for The Sims 4 opened in 2013, and the ability to share creations became available shortly before the game's release.[2][3]

SexySims2[edit | edit source]

While adult content and less risqué content used to be in the same place, adult content was initially moved to a different section of the site and later given its own site, SexySims2, for people who want to spice up their game in a different way. SexySims2 requires its own registration and features The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 content as well.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Only members can download from and post on ModTheSims. Membership is free as it is their philosophy to provide their service at no cost to the user.[4]

Apart from having Featured Artists, Featured Downloads and Picked Downloads, MTS also feature prestigious awards for their most valued artists.[5]

This will be given to people who write tools for all to use, and those who generally help in various ways in the community. Without their tireless efforts, we wouldn't be here at all.
MOCCA - MTS Outstanding Continued Creative Achievement.
This will be given to creators who have consistently produced excellent work, as well as those who have broken the boundaries of creative content.

Although Mod The Sims is not a pay site, donations are encouraged to help cover server costs. Users are able to make a one-time donation or pay for a monthly subscription. Benefits include custom titles, larger avatars, larger PM inbox, and the ability to remove ads. For a time, users were also given the option to purchase products from The Sims series through Amazon.
