The Sims 3 Nude Mod
In the game, when a Sim is taking a bath, a shower, or using the toilet, they are blurred for privacy reasons. However, not everybody likes the mosaic blurring effect that the Sims uses when performing these actions.
Electronic Arts does not want to sell The Sims 3 with the ability for Sims to be nude, as it is rated ages 12+. This however doesn’t mean that after you buy it that you can’t mod it how you want – at your own risk. Be advised that some mods and hacks will disrupt other aspects of your game sometimes too, so always know how to disable or uninstall something before installing it to your game.
The nudist mod for The Sims 3 is one of the most used and easy to install. There have been variations of it for all of The Sims games that have been released.
This nude mod for The Sims 3 takes the mosaic blur effect away, so Sims can be viewed doing those actions without the blur. Some gamers find the blur effect to be annoying, and some just don’t mind seeing nude Sims. Default Sims have a “Barbie doll" appearance when naked, so it isn’t naughty. When a Sim is using the toilet, they don’t take of their lower clothing, they just sit on the toilet fully clothed, so nothing lewd would be viewed from the mosaic being removed from this action either.
You will need to download the mod for the specific expansion or stuff pack that you most recently installed. Due to how the mod is setup, you will need to install a new one that corresponds with that expansion pack or stuff pack when you install it to your game.
Nudist mods for The Sims 3 can be found at Mod The Sims.
How to Install and Uninstall the Nudist Mod for The Sims 3

With the 1.12 patch for The Sims 3, accepting custom content is pretty simple.
Make a folder for mods by going to your folder under My Documents:
Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\
Right click in an empty area of the folder and choose to create a new folder. Call this folder “Mods".
Your game needs to know where to look for this customized content, so download the resource.cfg file. Save it to your new Mods folder.
Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\
Next, you need to make a new folder in the Mods file called “Packages."
Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages\
After all of the new files are setup, all you have to do is extract the package (or drag and drop the .package file) into the Package folder.
Test the nudist mod by loading your game and seeing if the mosaic is blurred or not when a Sim is using the bathroom or taking a shower or bath.
If you no longer wish to view your Sims nude, you can always re-mosaic your Sims so that the blur comes back. Simply go to where your Mod is in the Package folder, and delete it.
