Sims 4's bops are undeniable. This mod allows you to either replace Sims 3's music with Sims 4 music, or add 4's music to the existing roster. In the non-replacement version of the mod, you have the option of adding music per expansion/game pack. In the replacement version, due to how replacing music works, I haven't been able to figure out an easy way of splitting the music that well, so you only get the option of installing music by mode (CAS, build/buy, map, main themes). This time around, only the basegame got a proper music release, so only that is higher bitrate. The rest of the music is taken straight from the game files. Fear not, as no transcoding was necessary-the music should sound identical to how it sounds in TS4, minus the adaptive features. Below you will find full tracklists!


IMPORTANT NOTES

I highly recommend that you combine all of the packages from this mod into one. It won't affect the mod's functionality, and will save a lot of loading time. Also ensure that the combined package file is NOT compressed for maximum performance.

The replacement version of this mod overrides the following files: music_theme.AUDTUN, music_mode_CAS.AUDTUN, music_mode_build.AUDTUN, music_mode_buy.AUDTUN and music_mode_map.AUDTUN. The non-replacement version adds music the same way an expansion pack would, without replacing anything.

I'm not too experienced with Sims 4's music. Some tracks might be in the wrong places, and I have opted not to use tracks in CAS & build mode to avoid including duplicate files. If you find a track that is blatantly wrong, please let me know in the comments and I will fix it asap.

CAS can be a little buggy with music mods. After a while, the playlist might break and the next song will not play. This can be fixed by previewing a song in the settings menu and then going back.

If you're using the non-replacement version without my MoreBITS mod, there will be very dramatic differences in volume between the Sims 4 tracks and 3 tracks. Primarily this is down to the mastering of the music-the loudness war ruins lives. It's also down to the fact that the original Sims 3 music is abnormally low in volume. There's no way I would be able to alter the volume of the non-basegame music without having to re-encode the music and it sounding terrible, so there's not really much I can do.

Replacing music in this game hasn't been experimented with that much. Sometimes I've heard quiet demonic garbling between songs, and there are probably many other bugs that could occur when using this. Please let me know if anything weird happens.

Technicalities
The basegame music has been encoded from a 44.1kHz 16bit FLAC source to a VBR MP3 by LAME 3995o with the following settings:
-V 0 -q 0

The rest of the music was extracted from Sims 4's original SNS files, and then remuxed to a single block SNR file (no transcoding!).
