SURE!

you need sims4studio
When you get it you see at the top left hand corner when you open the application;

select TOOLS>MERGE PACKAGES...

then you just drag the packages you want to merge :)

NOTE: the game could only process up to 2gb of a merged mod package file (or so I've heard)
aaaanddd don't merge mods...like mods that modify the game...you can only do stuff like hairs, clothing, accessories, objects.

HOPE THIS HELPS!

You can merge cc files with the help of the Sims4Studio--which you can get here -> https://sims4studioofficial.tumblr.com/.

Once you have downloaded and installed the Sims4Studio there is an option that allows you to merge cc files.  Step by step, here is how to merge your cc files once you have opened the sims 4 studio:

1. Click on the "Tools" tab at the top left hand corner of the program.
2. Under the "Tools" tab click "Merge Package Files"
3. After the new window pops up click "Add", and from any of your cc-housing folders you can add in the files that you wish to merge. After adding the files you wish to merge, click merge lol.

Name your file, and you are done!

I would recommend using some sort of system when you merge--so merging cc by what they are or by the creator's name. I would also recommend that you merge no more than a handful of cc at one time, and that you check that there are no conflicts between what you are trying to merge beforehand. Also, keep in mind that there is no real way to unmerge cc after the initial merge, so you may want to weed out broken/bad cc beforehand.

Happy merging!

Before you merge make sure you have backups of your CC!! I personally keep two sets of backups one on my desktop and one on an external hard drive.
The shade tho...🌴👀🌴

It consolidates the .package files so that the game load screens take less time to load. When you have thousands of .package files the game has to search the mods folder before playing anything. That slows the game down.

If you're using a PC, go to your mods folder and search for .package

Then select a few hundred mods and drop them in the Sims Studio package application. Once merged, drop the .package file in your mods folder and delete the loose ones you merged from your mods folder. Make sure you have a backup of the loose files in another location.
