Sims 4 Nerd & Geek CC: Clothes, Glasses, Décor & MoreThis post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
Having grown up a closet nerd/geek, I can’t tell you how genuinely relieved I am to be part of a more accepting society.
Being a a geek no longer entails the same sort of social torture it did 30+ years ago (the golden age of swirlies, wedgies, and the lovable “four-eyes” nickname). Now, being a nerd is completely acceptable. And no one cares whether you want to broadcast it or not.
If your Sim is out and proud (about being a geek/nerd), then why not surround them with some awesome custom content that caters to their interests?
1. Magic the Gathering Mana Shirts for Women by GalaxxyFoxx
Even if you’ve never played it, I’m willing to bet all my Simoleons that you’ve heard of it. Magic: The Gathering is pretty much a staple geek hobby; arguably on the same level as Dungeons & Dragons and Lord of the Rings.
This near-timeless card game has embraced the era of technology and introduced digital options, but hardcore nerds stick to good ol’ printed cards.
Let your female Sim proudly display their love for this game – and their favorite color – with these pretty neat Magic the Gathering Mana Shirts by GalaxxyFoxx.
These simple short-sleeved, u-neck shirts come in 5 different designs. Obviously, one for each color (mana).
They do look a little boxy in-game (and the way they stick to the body looks a little awkward for bigger-chested women) but the concept’s novel enough to give this a pass.
Also, the mana symbols just look hella cool.
2. Male Nerd JV003 by JayVader
If the women get Magic: The Gathering, apparently the men get everything else.
Just like GalaxxyFoxx’s MTG shirts, these Male Nerd JV003 shirts are classic long-sleeved, base-game-meshed numbers that allow your Sims to feature some pretty iconic nerd/geek symbols on their torso.
There are 10 designs in total, ranging from well-known Superhero logos (Batman, Superman, the Flash, etc.) to a harmless graphic of an unsolved Rubik’s cube.
It’s not winning any fashion awards, but it’s definitely right up any nerd/geek’s alley.
Think Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory.
Note: the title may say specifically for males, but turn off the style filter and your female Sim can shrug these shirts on too!
3. Star Wars Shirt for Men by remaron
As a big Star Wars nerd myself, I will say that these awesome TS4 Star Wars shirts by remaron are freaking legit.
They definitely look like something you’d pick up from the novelty/character shop and wear in real life.
The creator doesn’t say specifically where they got the designs, but I wouldn’t be surprised if these were based off actual Star Wars merchandise.
And if they are, I think it’s pretty awesome that you and your Sim can be nerd twinsies with these.
There are 9 designs in this CC set with two base colors: black and white.
But since the designs are already pretty graphic and have their own pop of color (i.e., BB-8 orange, classic Star Wars logo yellow, etc.), I think keeping the main color solid neutral was a smart stylistic choice.
And for my hardcore Star Wars fanatics out there, take a peek at our other CC list focused on TS4 Star Wars stuff.
4. Nerd Glasses by Around the Sims 4
Now before you go off on me, I’m very much aware that there are plenty of glasses to choose from in the vanilla base game.
You don’t really need to download TS4 CC to get one.
However, these glasses have a fun little detail that I think fits the narrative quite well: a taped bridge.
Glasses can be expensive, okay?
If your Sim is getting their glasses broken every other week, they can’t exactly go around buying new frames every time.
Tape is effective, cost-efficient, and makes quite the fashion statement.
This pair from Around the Sims 4 comes in 20 different colors, and every group – from the neutrals to neons – seems to be well-represented.
5. LAIRS & LLAMAS: A Dungeons & Dragons Themed Set by Valhallan
If you’re a hardcore D&D player, then I hope you’re sitting down.
Because this downright incredible adaptation by Valhallan has everything you could possibly need for a nice, long, dungeon-delving, dragon-slaying campaign.
Well, with it being in The Sims world and everything, I guess it’s more of a lair-scoping, llama-herding situation.
Regardless, I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is hands-down one of the best CC packs you could download.
It’s got maps and minis, dice and DM screens, character sheets, and helpful player books that make the whole setup feel freaking legit.
And if you’re a D&D 5e player, you’ll definitely recognize the covers and characters.
It’s the little details – like having a Faerûn swatch of the map or a 5e version of the character sheet – in this pack that make it an absolute winner.
As a bonus, the character miniatures – which are beautifully crafted – double as usable toys!
So if your Sim’s toddler feels like gnawing on a Skeleton Lord’s head, they totally can do it in-game.
You can download each piece of the set individually or as a merged .package file.
A word to the wise: you’ll need the mesh by dreamteamsims in order for the books to work. The creator has linked it in the description, but unfortunately, the link leads to a lost or deleted page.
The books worked fine for me in-game (as decorative “clutter” objects), but yours could function differently. I highly recommend putting all the items in this pack on a table, as they were intended to be. Placing them on the floor could mess with the mesh.
6. TS4 Avengers Playable Action Figures by lolasimblr
Speaking of usable toys, check out this awesome TS4 CC pack full of – wait for it – Marvel superhero action figures.
Sure, The Sims 4 has got The Purple Protector & The Purple Pursuer. But why not expand the collection?
Thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, every kid probably knows who Captain America, Iron Man, and Black Widow are.
I’d like to think this carries over in the TS4 universe.
Your Sim (and/or their kid) deserves some pretty iconic figures for their toy box, do they not?
Lolasimblr’s CC pack comes with 8 playable action figures representing eight different Marvel superheroes. In alphabetical order (just to keep things fair):
- Black Panther
- Black Widow
- Captain America
- Iron Man (2 versions)
They work just like any other toy in the vanilla game, but it’s unclear if playing with it will raise the imagination skill.
Regardless, it’s still something cool for your Toddler Sim to play with (or for your slightly-adult nerd/geek Sim to decorate their room with).
7. Marvel/DC-Themed Posters by ShesASimmer
What self-respecting comic book geek & fantasy nerd doesn’t have a poster (or three) of their favorite fictional heroes?
With all the options that ShesASimmer gives us in this pack—seriously, there are 30 different poster designs—you’re bound to find at least one piece your Sim will want tacked up on their wall.
Each poster goes for $65 simoleons a pop. And their mesh is the DJ Suuuuul Poster.
So this CC is, happily, base-game compatible.
Choose between classic Marvel comic covers, minimalist DC superhero headshots, Marvel TV show logos, Simmified superhero movie poster, and more.
8. Comics Movies Posters by Novvas
Sort of like ShesASimmer’s Marvel/DC-Themed Poster, but have them framed.
This one doesn’t have as many options as the previous pack. But it still introduces 10 new designs that you could potentially hang up on your Sim’s wall.
And each poster comes in a stylishly protective matte black frame. This time, the theme is condensed to just popular comic/superhero movie posters like Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, and the like.
They’re also much cheaper than ShesASimmer’s posters (at $10 per poster) so if you’re on a strict no-cheats budget, these geeky posters are your best bet.
9. Marvel Comics Décor & Readable Books by knockkonck
This awesome CC from knockkonck is the clutter pack your nerdy Sims didn’t know they needed.
It’s almost exactly what the title says: a décor item made to look like a stack of Marvel comics—with bonus readable Marvel comics that your Sim can purchase via computer or bookshelf!
Use it to decorate bedrooms, study rooms, home libraries, or even commercial comic book shops!
The décor pieces have 4 different variations: (1) a thin pile made up of just two or three comic books, (2) a standard row of comic books, (3) a standard row of comic books with the last copy separated and leaning against the row, and (4) a thick stack of comic books piled vertically, with the topmost copy displayed.
The first and fourth variation even come in 10 different comic book cover designs.
As if that wasn’t cool enough, the creator even included a readable version of most of the comic books seen in the pile. They add 10 or so new books to the base game book list titled “Marvel Comics”—all of which can be bought for $250 Simoleons a piece.
10. Bunny Gaming Chair by Desimny
Eccentric Sims have eccentric tastes that may (or may not) make sense to the non-geeks and non-nerds out there.
Take this oh-so-cute Bunny Gaming Chair CC by Desimny.
The design doesn’t make sense, and neither does the need for ears. But is that gonna stop any gamer geek Sim from investing in this $250-Simoleon chair?
After all, nothing else screams “I mean business!” to your digitally-generated enemies quite like a pair of (maybe) cotton/pleather/polyester bunny ears.
Choose from 2 variations (with Simlish logo or without) and a total of 11 different swatches with three main colors (pink, black, and blue).
