The Sims 4: Funeral CC & Mods To Play With (All Free)This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
When the Get to Work expansion pack introduced active-lot hospitals, life in The Sims 4 felt much more dynamic.
It’s exciting (and anxiety-inducing) to watch your pregnant Sim give birth.
Death’s a different story.
Once it’s your Sim’s time to go, there’s not much of an opportunity to mourn after the Grim Reaper escorts them to the afterlife. Your Sims simply become sad for some time, and then move on.
Sadly, memorials and funerals were unavailable… until now.
CC creators fill a much-needed role when it comes to immersion in the game. And we’ve found some great items that’ll help you let your Sims go with a proper goodbye.
Funeral Parlor CC
We’re starting off this list with a must-have collection from AroundTheSims4.
The Funeral Parlor set is a one-stop shop for funeral home building.
With a variety of coffins, tombstones, flower arrangements, and more, it’ll make everything feel a bit more real.
It’s base-game compatible, and while all items are available for individual download, consider donating to ATS4 for all-in-one downloads.
Spoiler: it’s totally worth it.
Funeral Deco Sims
If you’ve never heard of deco Sims before, allow me to blow your mind.
Many of us would love more Sims to show up at our events or to populate our neighbors. Only problem is, more Sims = more lag.
Thanks to CC creators, we now have deco Sims – that is, Sims that are technically objects and solely meant for storytelling.
And they’re here to fill up your events.
This Funeral Deco Sims Set by CatastopheSims offers, you guessed it, deco Sims meant to stand around and look sad for funerals.
And they come in handy so much for those who take a lot of photos, since they never move!
Funeral Chapel Items Poses
Funeral deco Sims solve one headache, but what about immersion when it comes to controllable Sims?
If you want your Sim to pray, grieve for the recently departed, and properly mourn, check out these Funeral Chapel Item Poses by creator Necrodog.
There are five poses in this set, and even one animation of a Sim kissing their late loved one.
But you’ll need to do a little prep before using, including the furniture used for the poses, plus getting the Pose Player and Teleport Any Sim.
SimCity 4 Morgue Set
Simmers who go deep with the storytelling and want to include all aspects of death should check out another NecroDog creation:
The SimCity 4 Morgue Set.
This collection includes six items in total – stackable body bags, two different kinds of body sheets, decorative deceased Sims (creepy!), and a morgue slab and fridge.
Most items come with a low and high poly option to suit your gameplay and hardware requirements, so anyone can enjoy this CC.
Royal Funeral Pose Pack
Here’s one more Funeral Pose Pack from SunflowerPoses, and it’s a bit different from the last entry.
With eight poses in total, these are best suited for a grieving couple of status, as the poses primarily depict a military/royal husband and wife attending a funeral.
There’s also an eight Sim pose for carrying a casket.
You can find the flag used for the pictured casket here.
This is a good one for those who play historical or royal Sim families.
Have a Sim with an iron stomach looking for a lucrative career?
I hear SimCity Morgue is hiring…
Midnitetech’s Mortician Career puts your Sim directly in the role of mortician, responsible for assisting to the dearly departed and their loved ones.
After level four, they’ll have the option of following either the Funeral Director or Medical Examiner branch.
No special packs or extra downloads needed for this one, so jump right in!
Dignity Funeral Parlor
A fully furnished funeral parlor, with none of the hard work required.
Can life get any better?
This custom funeral parlor by Whyeverr can be used as a museum or residential lot, but we think it makes a great addition to any save.
The 40×30 lot provides late Sims with cremation and embalming services, and its New Orleans-inspired look makes it perfect for Willow Creek.
Heads up that you’ll pretty much need all the EA packs released from July 2018 on back, but there’s no CC used.
Funeral and Enchant Veiled Hat
Witchy, or just theatrical?
We’ll leave it up to you.
But we just have to share DivaDoom’s Veiled Hat CC.
While the black lace veil and roses are a nice touch for a funeral hat, the pointy tip makes this a little peculiar, and does resemble a witch hat.
We could see eccentric Sims getting away with it… or Lillth Vatore sporting it at Vlad’s funeral a thousand years from now.
These come in black and white, and are HQ meshes.
Sims 4 Funeral Mod
Anyone wanting funerals as a social event needs to download this mod immediately!
Originally created by retired CC’er BrittPinkieSims, and then updated by SHEnanigans, the Sims 4 Funeral Mod adds a custom funeral event into your game.
This way you get to properly say goodbye to deceased Sims.
As with any event in the game, you’ll need specific items to be successful, including a mic, bar, wreath, casket or urn, and a musical instrument.
There are also funeral objects included, so no need to download others unless you’re really wanting some options.
If you’d rather not bother with an ultra-realistic depiction of death in The Sims, definitely give this mod a try.
Mortem for The Sims 4
Death as you know it in The Sims 4 will never be the same after this.
Powerhouse CC group SimRealist released Mortem to the public…
And minds. were. blown.
Let’s start from the beginning:
This mod is all about realism. And it changes the following dynamics in game:
- There’s no such thing as the Grim Reaper
- When your Sims die, they die. There’s no bargaining, no death flowers, etc.
- Because Grim doesn’t exist, your late Sim will lie on the ground in a body bag
- A replacement NPC, the medical examiner, must be called by a surviving Sim to collect the one who died
- Only after the ME has examined will the Sim be removed, which then triggers an in-game wait before a funeral can be planned
It’s definitely not for the faint of heart, or those who prefer light-hearted gameplay.
But it does provide a darker style for Simmers who want something new.
