@NoxOculis V key on your mouse. I don't have a V key on my mouse. I've been gaming all my life and the V key on the keyboard has rarely been needed for utilization. We are speaking english with english keys, not french? Sims uses keys like a compass formation, for moving the world. My cp runs avi. No computer that runs Sims is prehistoric. So, my point is, i don't understand what you are trying to prove here. Im baffled kinda

@Peachess143 AVI isn't a video format. It's a multimedia container format. AVI is nothing without video codecs, and not all PCs have video codecs installed. It's an antique format and was a bad design, which is why it isn't used hardly any more. Every company/video wanted to have their own "codec" so the number of codecs exploded, and people would have to install dozens and dozens of codecs, which ended up ruining computers.

Different players like different keyboard configurations. Me, I HATE WASD for movement in games. I prefer the older WADX configuration. Just because YOU don't like it, doesn't make it wrong.

@Psychotps Yeah. There are players for AVI that are converters to MP4 or comes with it to automatically recognize AVI files as readable for windows music, video, etc. No need for a codec when windows allows the simple conversion.

When did i say i don't like movement or that i like movement? I play sims, i don't like touching my keyboard if i dont have to when playing, I've also been playing World of Warcraft longer than i have lived and other games. I have no problem with keybinding needs, I see no need in keybindings added to sims and believe that would make a ton of problems for the player base as they need to use keys to do what they used to just click for. THAT is what made me involve my opinions in here. I am very versatile when it comes to gaming and will play almost anything honestly.

@NatteulvenDk its 2021 and i just transferred to pc, im wondering if theres a mod that lets u do it. i have a small keyboard and a mouse with low dpi so i rely on keyboard camera controls most of the time. i also have a 60% keyboord so it would be nice to be able to switch floors and toggle walls using different keys aside from home/end and pgup/pgdn.

@jpkarlsen have you never played any other pc game. almost all let you change these. I for one have back and forth buttons on my mouse and a key binding for page up and down would be perfect for them but this game for some reason doesn't follow the same standard as every other pc game, having customizable keybindings.

it’s the build mode options for me.

i don’t have an ALT key on my keyboard (it’s broken), so i can’t free move without awkwardly pressing down in a specific spot

also the keys for sizing up and down are a little awkward and it’d be nice to be able to have one hand on my mouse, and the other on WASD and using the surrounding keys for shortcuts especially in build mode.

id love a mod for this

The number of times I have exited back to the neighborhood while in build mode because I accidentally hit F1 instead of ESCAPE .... why can I NOT set my own keybinds in this game?? I would definitely disable that f*@#ing F1 key.

I completely agree that we need to be able to redo keybinds. I wanted to go into first person, but I am using Steam. It's the same keys used to open the overlay. I use the overlay a lot to chat and use the browser through it, so I really don't want to disable it just to go into first person. I honestly thought this was one of the cooler features of the sims 4. That I was to be able to view life from the eyes of a sim. But I guess I will just have to miss out on that feature for a bit.

Re: Changing Keybindings in The Sims 4

@lyricgrr  You can change the key binding for the Steam overlay instead.  I know it's not a perfect solution, but at least you'd have access to both features.
