What is everyone’s obsession with zombie apocalypses, anyway?
It started way back when, I’m sure. But it really blew up with The Walking Dead and The Game of Thrones’ White Walkers.
There’s no denying that our society has an almost disturbing fascination with shambling corpses that eat people’s brains (and hearts, and guts, and spleens…) and it definitely shows. Take a look at how many games and TV shows fit zombies into their storyline.
Well rather than keep wracking my brain over it, I decided to bring it into my Sim’s world.
And so can you!
Check out our picks for some of the best zombie-related CC and mods for The Sims 4.
1. Zombie Stitches by Pipco
It’s a right shame these stitches only work for Female Sims, because they genuinely sell the character.
A vanilla TS4 game does have some face scars and face markings that you can use for the zombie’s face, but the only body markings it offers are tattoos.
Pretty limited, if you ask me.
You’re telling me zombies don’t get shot in the gut?
Anyway, these Zombie Stitches by Pipco come in two swatches which change the position and orientation of the stitches.
And they look excellent placed on top of sickly gray or pale green skin. I know the effect might look more “Frankenstein’s monster” than zombie, but I’d argue both fall under the category of “shambling, supernatural undead.”
2. Stuck on You Skintones by pyxis
Speaking of “sickly gray or pale green skin,” take a look at these awesome skintones by pyxis.
This creator does a lot of supernatural/otherworldly CC for The Sims 4, and they’re always high-quality.
This one is no different.
The CC adds 25 new non-default skin colors that work on all ages, all genders, and are set to random (so your townies can have them, too).
Twenty of these are normal human swatches that “fill in the gaps” of EA’s skin color spectrum, to quote the creator.
Five of them are supernatural skins that you’d be hard-pressed to recreate—even with the crazy colors that already exist in base game TS4.
Two of these five skins look like sickly, bloodless undeath (in the best way)—absolutely perfect for creating zombie Sims.
You can find a swatch of all 25 in the creator’s description.
3. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines – Pisha’s Blood by Satterlly
Hear me out:
I know this says “vampire” in the title. But the blood spatters around the mouth – paired with the blood spatters on the hands and chest – genuinely work for brain-hunting, flesh-eating undead.
With the right expressions, poses, and CAS items, these swatches can be used to make a zombie look like it just feasted on fresh (human) meat.
Alternatively, they can also be used to create zombie-slaying-vampire-Sims in CAS—which is what I used them for.
Seriously, try these blood swatches with any of the pose packs I listed here, and the “headless” CC by Natalia-Auditore (coming further up in this list). It makes for pretty gruesome (but epic) photos.
4. Sims 4 Zombie Apocalypse Mod: Last Escape by sacrificialmods
One of the best Zombie Apocalypse mods, hands-down.
There are at least a dozen reviews and LPs for it on YouTube, done by pretty big Gaming YouTubers and EA Gamechangers.
But with new skills, new items, new pie menus, a new Zombie Hunter trait, and much more, this mod is by far one of the most extensive ones out there.
And according to the reviews so far, it’s practically glitch-free.
This mod turns whatever town you’re playing in, into zombie central.
Random townies will turn into zombies once the apocalypse starts. And more will get bitten and turn along the way.
It’s up to you to either (a) be the hero and cure the town of this horrendous undead disease, (b) become a villain who spreads the virus as far and as wide as you can, or (c) die a gruesome, painful death at the hands of lifeless, robotic corpses.
You can start the apocalypse three ways: purchase a radio and tune in to the “Police’s Emergency Broadcast,” (which will then give you a notification informing “all citizens” about increasing reports of “cannibalism”), purchase a radio and choose the “Infect All Sims in District” (in the “Air Support” pie menu), or purchase a “Zombification Virus” to use on your Sim (or others).
The first method will trigger a social event with goals, and I highly recommend that for first-time players. It’ll give you more detailed instructions on how to go about the rest of the mod.
The new items and events added can even dictate your Sim’s emotional states.
For instance, wearing a Gas Mask will give your Sim a Confident mood.
Being near a zombie will Terrify your Sim.
And getting bit turns your Sim into a playable zombie with a Zombified state—and a constant hungering for human flesh!
As mentioned, this mod also adds a pretty sweet Zombie Hunter trait that you can give your Sim in-game.
Having this trait gives your Sim a “higher chance of survival.” Their shots have higher chances to kill Zombies, and they’re more likely to escape a Zombie’s grasp without getting bitten. Sims with this trait also won’t be Terrified of zombies nearby.
If this all sounds basically like a Resident Evil crossover, well, you’d be surprised how many Resident Evil styled mods have made it into TS4!
NOTE: the mod is a little gruesome due to all the blood, exploding heads, Zombie bites, and general zombie-apocalypse-related violence. But it’s palatable. And really, really cool if you’re into that sort of stuff.
5. Headless Outfit by Natalia-Auditore
Honestly one of my favorite items on this list.
80% because it’s so clever and so well crafted, and 20% because it’s freaking hilarious when your Sim isn’t posing as a severed head.
They look like people goofing around with a green screen.
What this outfit does is turn your Sim’s body invisible—save for the feet and head. The result is a ghastly floating head that is, as far as Sim standards go, pretty freaking believable.
A headless head isn’t necessarily exclusive to zombies, but in a zombie-apocalypse-themed photoshoot? It still works.
6. Headless Acc by Natalia-Auditore
It’s a hat that acts as invisibility cloak for your Sim’s head.
The result has your Sim shambling around as a headless undead being.
The effect is, like, three times as cool if you combine it with some sick poses.
And we’ve got some zombie-themed pose packs coming up (one of which is from the same creator as this and the headless outfit) that perfectly fit the bill.
Alternatively, if you’re into supernatural dark-ish humor, you could just leave your Sim headless and play the game as normal.
I promise that them being headless doesn’t affect their coding at all.
7. Walking With a Head by Natalia-Auditore
This pose pack is from the same creator as the “Headless Outfit” and “Headless Accessory” CC, and it’s perfect for Sims who thrive in a zombie apocalypse.
Because there’s always that one character famous (or infamous) for their particularly savage zombie-killing methods.
These poses are for those Sims that can cut through hordes of zombie swarms and emerge in gut-covered, slime-soaked victory.
The Sims that laugh in the face of shambling undead and have an incredibly impressive kill count.
Their methods may be a tad bit brutal, and they’re almost definitely slightly unhinged. But they’re still zombie-killing machines.
Everyone wants them on their side.
That’s what these pose packs are made for.
The kings and queens of the zombie apocalypse, casually walking away from a burning pile of undead corpses with their bloody trophies in hand (which you can replicate by using Natalia-Auditore’s Headless Outfit CC, linked earlier).
Is it a little too gruesome? Maybe.
Is it cool, though? Heck yeah.
8. Zombie Dinner Pose Pack by Lady Kendal Sims
This pose pack captures those terrifying moments when you realize the Sim hunched over isn’t in pain—he’s just turning.
Into a brain-eating zombie!
This one’s a little more SFW and a little less gruesome than Natalia-Auditore’s Walking with a Head pose packs (from earlier), but that doesn’t make it any less perfect for a zombie game.
It works even better if you pair it with some bloody makeup around the arms, mouth, and face (may I recommend Satterlly’s Pisha’s Blood CC?).
Placing the teleport standees for these poses is a little tricky (especially for the third pose, where the zombie is biting down on the Sim’s arm), so I recommend following a general rule of “place them as close as physically possible.”
9. Zombie Apocalypse Pose Pack by Simduction
Simduction’s Zombie Apocalypse poses perfectly replicate the classic shambling, brainless, living dead ghouls we see in cartoons and animated movies.
The exaggerated facial expression, the jolting uncoordinated walk, neck bent at 90 degrees, arms and legs akimbo—it’s the whole package.
If you’re replicating a zombie attack, these highly characteristic zombie poses can do no wrong.
You’ve got four walking poses, two ground poses (as in, your Zombie!Sim comes crawling out of the ground), and three variations of the typical arm-rising-from-the-grave shot.
These are extremely fun to play around with.
And if you’re going for some fun apocalyptic humor, I highly recommend using the third variation of the Zombie-arm poses.
10. A Monster Within Me (Part 1) by KareemZiSims
I have never seen a mod or CC quite like this terrifyingly gruesome piece from KareemZiSims, so I have to give mad kudos.
A Monster Within Me (Part 1) literally plants a creature within your Sim’s head, and allows it to take over half their face.
At least, that’s what it looks like.
It’s even worse because the monster’s eye moves in sync with your Sim’s, giving it even more intense Alien/Parasite vibes.
There are 10 variations for this CC piece, and each one depicts a different monster. To create a Zombie!Sim, I recommend using either the first swatch (“Flesh-Eating Parasite”) or the second swatch (“Zombie”).
