Disable Mods/CC ?

Post by PaigeLuwee on Tue 15 Dec 2015, 15:35

Hey guys...just installed the latest crack, and the game works perfectly!!
but, a little disappointment with the new update, well not from our lovely team (G4TW), but from Maxis..its all about the mods/cc things.

I've read this info, http://help.ea.com/en/article/mods-and-the-sims-4-game-updates/
but I'm a Noob, I'm afraid to do the 'try and error', so...let me know if anyone here survived with your mods and cc,
I love cc very much, especially harry styles (Hair) Why. Why. Why.

Hey there! I've played the game and so far encountered the common glitches of looping screen and get together interactions not working. If you don't encounter any problems however, then it is safe to assume your current mods/ccs will work well without running into problems.


I am, sad to say, in the process of putting back 200 mods one by one to test which are the ones causing problems. Sigh. Although 50/50 is safe to assume mods/ccs dated back to last year or up till sept this year causes glitches. Sad 


I hope your mods aren't that many compared to mine though if you wanted the trial and error process.

Hahaha yeah sigh. But i think it's easier if you know where the problem is though. For me, is when I go to newcrest (i placed a spa there) for a group hangout. If there's a problematic mod, it will loop to the world menu. Good luck! :3

I think the term "mod" is often used interchangeably, to describe custom-made/fan-made items in general. That can be all kinds of stuff, be it game-altering mods or custom hair/makeup/clothing, etc. 

I have gotten used to calling game-altering stuff "mods", while things like hair, clothing and similar things are for me "normal CC". With that in mind, you probably don't (!) have "more than 100 (game-altering) mods". Smile  What am I trying to say by that ?

I would suggest that if you need to filter CC because of a new game patch, then focus first on items that actually change in-game mechanisms. Ideally (or hopefully), you have created a system of organization for your CC, and put those game-altering mods into a special folder. See for example this post here, which contains a suggestion for such a system of organization. Having something like this in place should make filtering the items a bit easier.

Again, you should focus on those game-altering items, because they often cause problems in newer patch versions. Items like hair, clothing or makeup, on the other hand, tend to be less problematic, so you can give them lower priority.


Good luck again !

Oops! I got so used to calling them 'mods' for other games that I forgot about that.  Facepalm Facepalm Facepalm


But yeah! And I think it's easier to test them according to dates modified. MOST CCs (for me) dated Sept 2015 and earlier seemed to be incompatible. I've already tested several hairs and make-up.

That's an interesting approach for filtering CCs. Very Happy  If it works for you, why not ? 

In general though, it's probably better to not use that many CC at all.  Haters gonna hate

Try keeping your mod "types" separate, as in, mods that change game behavior in a separate folder from new hair and makeup. That way, when a new patch comes out you can isolate the immediate problems. I had tons of mods that were more like game hacks that I had to delete completely because the creator stopped updating them.

....which is the reason I am still reluctant about using "too many" mods. I don't think it would be worth my time, sifting through these mods and gathering the information from the mod creator, each time a new game update is released.
