Sims 4 Mods: Getting Started with Python Scripting (November Patch Update)

- Advertisement -

For those familiar with Script modding (and those trying to learn it), Andrew over at Sims4Studio has updated the unpyc used for Script Mods for the upcoming November patch. He also posted a very easy to follow tutorial on how to get started. With this update, we can all breathe a little easier knowing that modders have us covered!

Please Note: Until the November 2018 patch is out, this tutorial won’t work with The Sims 4 game code.


This tutorial will show you how to install the required tools, extract EA python scripts, edit custom python scripts, and compile them to share as a mod. You will be using a free program called PyCharm to edit the python files. Please note, this tutorial assumes some familiarity with python and is not meant as a substitute for lessons/tutorials in python coding. It will show the Sims 4-specific steps of making a script mod.


You will not need Sims 4 Studio at all to complete this tutorial.

Note: Follow the original tutorial if you want to create script mods before the November patch.
