There are thousand of mod for the Sims 4 (with Sims 4 studio it's very easy to make small mod, tried it yesterday). So obviously we got TheSimsRessources, Sims Catalog, some on Patreon, LoversLab and personnal page, but why isn't Nexus became THE place for Sims 4 mod? I mean, for example, for Fallout 4 mod, most of the mod are on the Nexus, whereas for the Sims 4, there f***ing everywhere.

And well, the Nexus is very well done, ergonomic, lots of filter, and ITS FREE, TheSimsRessource is damn long to charge, you can by a premium (which make the free version loooooooongg) and it's not very pratic to use. So yeah, anyone got an idea? Why aren't people using more the Nexus?

Because you have all those places. Because people making mods prefer to paywall them and couldn't do it on nexus. Because they don't like nexus etc.

WickedWhims sent me here to download their mod.

Which is a good thing for me, I just got suspended from ...(well anyway, I was suspended (humorless overbearing razzlefrackin &^%)

I hope it's a trend that wickedwhims is starting, because wickedwhims used to be downloaded directly but maybe they needed a free site like this one.

I get the feeling that sites favor one game over another, and for a while that was skyrim.

But now I want a game heavily modded That the Sysops really like.

WhickedWhims is available in three locations that I'm aware of. They have their own site, they post on the other mod website, and this one. It's likely because they want to make the mod available to a wide variety of people - not the cost of a website. As for why Simmers don't upload to the Nexus, I think it's because The Sims is just a touch older than the Nexus is - and when The Sims series grew the Nexus was still a fairly young site. So as a result, CC ended up being shared all over the place. In general, games that are not made by Bethesda Game Studios tend to get their mods hosted all over the place.
