Latest Update Causes Chaos for Sims 4 Mods

Sims 4 Mods Update

The December 5th Sims 4 update was one of the largest updates we’ve seen ahead of a new pack launch. This patch in particular was delivered to players in two parts but contained a number of bug fixes and some new Base Game content.

While we know that using the Sims 4 Mods means players who are on PC or Mac will have to ensure they follow the correct updating process when a new patch is released, sometimes mods will break. It’s one of those things, that can happen. However, sometimes a new Sims 4 update can break mods completely and while it is rare, it does happen.

What did the update do to the Sims 4 Mods?

To put it simply, the latest patch has caused a number of issues for many script mods. This has resulted in many being unusable while Mod Creators work on updating the mods and testing them with the latest version of the game before releasing them to the public.

While many Sims 4 Mods creators expected this latest patch to break mods, it’s clear it broke a lot more than first thoughts.

What are the Sims 4 Mods Creators Saying?

A number of mod creators have taken to their social media platforms to share their initial Sims 4 Mods status updates and general thoughts.

TwistedMexi, the creator behind mods like Better Exceptions, T.O.O.L and Better Build Buy too to X (formerly Twitter) to share several updates regarding their own mods.

With the first of several mods being tested, TwistedMexi went on to add that this patch had a significant impact on mods overall.

Meanwhile, MC Command Centre creator Deaderpool, shared on Patreon an update regarding the impact this latest patch has had.

Likewise, the same message was also echoed on their Discord Server with members being kindly reminded that the team will be working hard on ensuring the highly popular mod is updated and ready as soon as possible.

Lumpinou previously shared ahead of the 5th December 2023 Sims 4 Update that it was likely that mods would break and to be mindful that testing and updating mods will take time with announcements to follow as soon as possible.

Since sharing this post earlier today, Lumpinou has shared an additional update on their Patreon. You can read this update in full here.

LilMsSam also took to X to share an update regarding their mods stating that she will be doing their best to check and update mods as soon as possible but due to a recent injury. Due to this, updates to their mods may take longer although a small first wave of updates has been released.
