Mod The Sims (formerly ModTheSims2, often abbreviated as MTS) was founded by Delphy (Stuart Stanfield) in May 2004 after he and Aobh previously created "Mod the Singles", a forum-based site for hosting and encouraging modification of the game Singles: Flirt Up Your Life, a dating-oriented clone of the blockbuster The Sims. It runs on vBulletin 3.0.14, with certain hacks added.[2] MTS focuses on custom content for The Sims 2, The Sims 3 and The Sims 4, most notably game modifications. Tutorials on how to make the aforementioned modifications are also hosted on the same site, as well as lively forums devoted to game and modification help as well as general discussion.

Its sister site, Sims 2 Community, appeared around July 2005. The purpose of this was to alleviate the social threads on MTS, so MTS could focus on modifying the game. However, in May 2009 MTS and Sims 2 Community were merged into one site again. This was because staff on both sites felt that the line between the two sites was blurring and disliked having to send people to the other site constantly, to have their questions answered.[citation needed]

Due to the release of The Sims 3 in 2009, the site name was changed from ModTheSims2 to Mod The Sims, to account for custom content and other modifications for later games from The Sims series.

Adult content is hosted on the MTS servers. Originally, it was in the same place as the other content offered by the site, but it was later moved to a different section. After this, it was moved farther away from the main site to its own adult content exclusive site, SexySims. In order to create an account, users must be 18 years old.

Availability[edit]

Registration is free,[2] and is required to download. All content is offered for free, but members can donate to the site, or subscribe. By donating, the member gets more benefits on the site, including the removal of advertisements, a larger avatar, and custom titles, though they lack the option to download any additional content. As well as this, Mod the Sims offers a store where customers may purchase The Sims games, though there are no additional benefits for the customer.[3]
