Direct Controls is a mod for The Sims 4 that adds a whole new way of playing the game, by letting you control your Sim's every move.

With the press of a button (F1) you can seamlessly take control of your Sim's movement and explore the world through their perspective. Controlling your Sims with the keyboard is as natural as it gets if you've ever played any other modern third person or first person game before. The controls are as follows:
W, A, S, D: Movement
Shift: Sprint
F1: Enable/Disable Direct Controls

  • Smooth Movement System - An entirely new movement system was built from the ground up for The Sims 4 Direct Controls. You'll quickly adapt to a modern, smooth, camera-based movement inspired by the best third person and first person games out there.
  • First Person Support - Yes, the mod has a complete and fully fledged support for the beloved first person camera from The Sims 4. It automatically knows when you're in first person and all movement systems will adapt to it.
  • Automatic Traversal - Go anywhere. Your Sims will automatically traverse any doors, stairs, or evelators in the game. The world is all yours to explore!
  • In-Depth Customization - The mod features a fully functional in-game menu where you can customize everything and enable some very interesting features. Be a ghost, be the fastest man alive, be whatever you want to be, move however you want to move! By typing "dc.settings" in the cheats console or clicking on your Sim and going VictorAndrade -> Direct Controls, the following menu is presented:



The Sims 4 Direct Controls is built on the patch v1.54.120 (August 2019) and might not work in previous versions of the game. As for mod conflicts, it has been reported that right now Direct Controls is conflicting with the following mods:
  • TwistedMexi's BuildMode FreeCam

Rest assured that I'll do what I can to resolve all conflicts. Please let me know if you find any other incompatibilities whatsoever.
