Into The Light Sims 4 Lighting Mod

Say goodbye to those weird blue auras around your Sims in dark spaces. This sims 4 lighting mod brings a whole new level of immersion by giving your Sims a natural and vibrant look.

No more looking like glow-in-the-dark zombies! With more realistic colors and increased sunlight saturation, your Sims will feel alive and vibrant, especially when they’re out and about in the world.

Combine it with the “Out Of The Dark” mod for the ultimate lighting transformation. Trust me, your game will never be the same again! Time to step into the light and give your Sims the glow-up they deserve!

I absolutely love using this mod in my game. It’s a subtle effect, but it makes screenshots feel so much more alive. 🙌

If you’ve been a simmer for a while, and are familiar with Luumia’s NoGlo/NoBlu, these mods are a fantastic alternative to those mods (which, I believe, are outdated!).

Better CAS Sims 4 Lighting Mod

Calling all CAS fans and fashionistas! This sims 4 lighting mod for CAS is a must-have in your mods folder.

This mod comes with 5 different options for CAS lighting. Personally, I use the neutral light! Although, the “torchlight” effect is great for some spooky-ish shadows!

These lighting mods will adjust how your sims are lit up in CAS, the shadows, the highlights, and the colors. I absolutely love the way this mod lights my sims—they just look SO much better!

Sunblind Sims 4 Lighting Mod For All Worlds (In-Game Lighting OVERHAUL!)

Sunblind Sims 4 Lighting Mod For All Worlds

Sunblind by SofterHaze is THE must-have lighting mod for the sims 4!

This mod actually re-writes the game files, and is downloaded a little bit different than a standard mod. Make sure to follow the installation instructions to a T!

Sunblind is an incredible, 100% custom tuned lighting mod. Each world has been tweaked for the perfect look.

Straight from Softerhaze, Sunblind includes:

∴ Vivid color shifting sunsets and sunrises, with deep, saturated shadows and a unique summer sunset

∴ More realistic daytime lighting – less blue than ea’s default, but still somewhat saturated to better emulate light bouncing (Unlike no-blu mods, which entirely desaturate daytime lighting and shadows)

∴ Ultra dark, desaturated lighting and shadows late at night

Milk Thistle Sims 4 Lighting Mod for Sims 4 Worlds

Milk Thistle Sims 4 Lighting Mod for Sims 4 Worlds

Milk Thistle is an in-game lighting overhaul mod just like Sunblind! It is maxis-match, and started off as a tweak to the green tint in Henford on Bagley. But, it’s now available for all worlds!

And trust me when I tell you it is stunning!

Per Softerhaze, Milk Thistle includes:

∴ foggy mornings featuring the sunrise colors from twinkle toes

∴ de-saturated shadows during the day with a light blue sky and cool-toned sunlight

∴ brighter, more vivid sunsets with deep, saturated shadows

∴ saturated, bright moonlight with dark shadows at night

Good news! You can combine Sunblind and Milk Thistle, if you just can’t choose one. Just pick which lighting mod you want to use for which world, and you can mix and match the lighting files.

Just like with Sunblind, follow the installation directions to a T! This is not installed like any old mod, as it adjusts the actual in-game files!

With this sims 4 lighting mod, you get invisible lights! So you can brighten up your rooms as much as you want, without a pesky lamp getting in the way of your view.

And my favorite little detail of this mod is that it comes with light switches to turn the invisible lights off and on. Such a cute, clutter-y, realistic detail!

Reshade/Gshade for Sims 4 Lighting

Reshade is a program you install on your computer, that adds post-processing effects to your game! It can change the lighting, the shadows, the colors, add film grain, and more!
