Graveyard Lot Trait
This lot trait will turn any generic non-residential lot into a proper graveyard that’s perfect for all of your deceased Sims to move to as their final resting place… if they wish to rest that is! During the day, the graveyard will be populated with mourners paying their respects to lost loved ones. At night, the graveyard will be haunted by those whom have been lost. The lot trait may include a few more surprises as well. Read on… if you dare! If you’d rather find out through gameplay, skip the blue boxes and head down to the important information and download buttons below those blue boxes.
How To Use:
To use this trait you’ll need to go into Build Mode on any community lot. Start by selecting the Venue Type as “Generic” as that seems to be the best choice for a graveyard thus far. Then go to the Lot Traits panel and select “Graveyard” which should be this lot trait. See the preview image at the top of this post to see what the lot trait icon and description should look like in the game.
As for the lot itself; build to your heart’s content or do a search in the official Sims 4 gallery for #graveyard or #cemetery and I’m sure you’ll find something to your liking. The lot trait will work with any type of lot other than residential type lots. You could also use my Tranquil Graveyard lot found in the Community Lots section!
For the mourners and other Sims to mourn autonomously, they must have something to mourn! Blank tombstones and urns from debug won’t work (I tried). You need actual dead Sims for them to mourn. So, either wait until a Sim dies of natural causes or… uh… don’t wait. 😉 Then put the tombstone/urn on the graveyard lot so that the mourners and others will start doing their thing.
v1.5 – Added more autonomy directions for Sims to mourn at tombstones and urns (SEE NOTES ABOVE!) also added more times per day that mourners show up at the graveyard (they’ll be the ones dressed in formal wear). Made a few other little corrections and fixes as well.
If you have suggestions on how this lot trait could be further improved, please let me know.

KawaiiStacie (creator of the popular Slice of Life mod) first created a Graveyard Lot Trait mod that was similar to this but has since abandoned that mod and it is no longer available anywhere for download. I created this new lot trait from scratch on my own. I would still like to give props to KawaiiStacie for coming up with the original idea and inspiring me to create my own graveyard lot trait. Thank you.
I created this trait mod using the Mod Constructor v4 by Zerbu. I wish to thank Kutto and Lumpinou from Zerbu’s Realm Discord channel for their essential help in creating this lot trait. Thank you to MizoreYukii of the Creator Musings Discord channel for helping me figure out the venue restrictions on all my lot traits! I also utilized Sims 4 Studio for several edits so thank you to the team behind that program as well. I would like to thank DeathPoke1qa for making the suggestion that I alter the trait to behave differently for vampires and evil Sims which I now have. I may be making more edits in the future because of their suggestions and others.
