Sims 4 get together not working after enabling Mods and custom content [SOLVED]

Post by jessicaApple on Sun 13 Dec 2015, 22:20

Hi, i recently installed the sims 4 get together. I have installed all other games and updates which worked fine previously, all instructions followed when installing get together, and it worked fine to start with. Then i got a notification saying that mods/custom content had been disabled and re-enabling it might cause problems. I enabled it to see what would happen as mods and custom content play a big part in my gameplay. It asked me to restart in order for changes to be made and now when i try load it up it goes to a white loading screen for a few seconds and then says failure to launch sims 4.. Can anyone help resolve this issue? thank you.

Hi! It's normal to have problems with mods and CC that worked fine with previous versions. I believe there's something even worse with this version, since EA opted to disable all CC and Mods by default (I had never seen that before), meaning there must be some issues here.

My advice is to rename your "The Sims 4" folder inside your Documents, then try putting your CC back slowly, a few per time, to see which one(s) is(are) causing trouble.

Keep us posted and happy simming!!

Reinstalling the game, maybe? Also, remember you need to take care of your anti virus (disable and/or exclude all the folders involved) BEFORE you even start downloading, or you may have issues as well...

This is kind of bizarre, but it now works! i went to un-install on the control panel to which the sims 4 symbol disappeared, but the game is still on my system. So i went to launch the game to see if it made any difference, and it started running! Although mods, cc, not working. But then after you said to rename the file in my documents it created a new "The sims 4" folder and i moved all the cc and mods into the new one and mods are working with all expansions! Very Happy thanks for all your help.
