I know you love Sims 4 and want to make it look way better than what it does. In such a case, you can use some of the best Sims 4 reshades that can help you get some amazingly awesome graphics.
For those that are unaware of what Reshade it, let me say that reshade is a free program that you can easily download so as to change the look of your favorite video games to improve their look and feel! It goes without saying that Reshade is quite popularly used by The Sims 4 lovers. However, it is imperative that you have a high-end computer before you use Reshade since it can make your system lag.
Alternatively, what you can do is that you may use it purely for screenshots and turn it off while you are actually playing the game. To make this game even more interesting I would suggest that you check out the top Sims 4 challenges as well as the best Sims 4 gameplay mods by clicking here.
