How to Remove the Blur From the Sims

by C.K. Adams ; Updated September 22, 2017

The Sims 3 includes a feature that blurs or creates a mosaic around a nude Sim. Like other virtual reality games, players in Sims 3 create content, such as skins and clothes, and need to see the Sim nude with different content. Many players use a mod to get around this feature to see the Sim without the blur. The mod is free, but you have to install the patch to the right location in your Sims 3 folder to see the uncensored version of your Sim.

Open "The Sims 3" folder in "Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3." Right click in the blank area of the folder and create a new folder named "Mods." Double click to open this new folder and right click again to create a new folder named "Packages."

Download a Sims 3 censor patch from a reliable source. Save the file to the "Packages" folder you created. The Sims 3 Nude Patch version 2.4 is available from an admin of xSims. File Planet also provides a nude mod for Sims 3, or the No Mosaic mod at ModtheSims.

Right click on the file in "Packages" and click "Unzip" to open the contents. Drag the .package file into the "Packages" folder after unzipping.

Open The Sims 3 and test your nude patch by undressing your Sim.
