A collection of functional drugs for The Sims 4. The mod features custom drugs, custom animations, altered walkstyles, altered moods, altered needs, come-ups, peaks, comedowns, hangovers, addiction, rehabilitation, and loads more. Basemental is in no way promoting, encouraging or glorifying the use of drugs in real life. The harsh realities and negatives of prolonged drug use is a key feature of the mod.

Incorrect Installation Path:
Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods/Some Folder/Basemental Drugs/

!! Choose between zip or exe installation, not both !!
!! The .exe installation only works for Windows !!

• If you are updating, delete the old version from your Mods folder first
• Download and run the exe file
• Delete the downloaded exe file

Since the exe file is released by a small independent developer it lacks a code signature, meaning Windows will most likely tell you that it might be harmful to your machine. It is not, however. To circumvent it, click “Show More Info” and “Install Anyway”. If you think this sounds sketchy you can rather go the manual installation route as outlined below…
