Getting a Last Exception Notification in The Sims 4? Here’s What to Do!

Is that bright orange notification always bothering you?

Most of us have gotten that orange Last Exception pop-up from MC Command Center saying that we have a Last Exception. Or maybe Better Exceptions ran a scan and told you that something was broken. Here’s what to do when you get one of those messages.

Stop! Do not save the game. If possible, minimize your game until you know what is wrong. Saving your game could corrupt your file depending on the severity of the error. If you must save, choose Save As instead of Save. This will create a new copy of the file and keep the old version in tact.

If you do not know how to read last exceptions, then you will need to ask for assistance doing so. You can visit the Deaderpool Discord Server or Sims After Dark Discord Server for general help or visit TwistedMexi’s Discord Server for Better Exceptions Reports. If you know what mod is causing the problem, it is best to visit that individual creator’s Discord Server or you can contact them through their other forms of contact (Patreon, Tumblr, Twitter)

Where do I find Last Exceptions files? There are several types of Last Exception Files. The most common type of Last Exception files are the game’s Last Exception file, MC_lastexception.html file, and/or the BE-ExceptionsReport file. Below is where they are located in game. (File path is the same for both PC and Mac)

Better Exceptions’ Report (BE-ExceptionReport.html) is located in Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4

Don’t Use Discord?

Try opening either the MC_LastException or the BE-ExceptionReport and read the main line to see if any mod is named. If there is, then try removing that mod to see if you continue to get the LE. This does not guarantee it is that mod, but it is a good place to start.

Still getting Last Exception notifications? Remove all your mods, delete your cache, and If you’re still getting notifications, it’s a game error. If you weren’t getting the error without mods, try doing a 50/50.
