For each issue of Mod News we will bring you important news and information that mod users should know. This includes:

Mod/CC News

♦ Patch News ♦

Although we did have a patch on December 12th, it didn’t hurt too many mods. Still, be sure to check the links below for the latest updates.



♦ Sims File Share Caching Issues ♦

Unfortunately, one of our best file hosting sites, Sims File Share,  is experiencing cache issues (for some time now). This means that if you download mods from SFS, there’s a chance that you could get an older version of the mod. Not good if it was updated for patches.

If the creator has an alternate download option, please use it. If they don’t, you can try a F5 refresh.

This mainly applies to mods, since they need updated often. Custom Content like hair, clothes, etc should be fine since they don’t receive updates as mods do.



♦ Mod Updates ♦

Always check for updates to your mods after patches. Even if a mod seems to work, sometimes it still needs updated. Here’s some info and links to help you keep your mods up-to-date:

  • Mod the Sims  – If you download mods from MTS, there’s a very easy way to see if you have the latest version of any mod that you downloaded from there:
    • Click on My Links in the upper-right corner and select My Downloads. This shows a list of everything that you’ve downloaded from MTS, including when it was last updated and if you have the latest update. Very handy!
  • Popular Mod Updates (public versions only)
  • More Updated Mods

❗ Never download mods from sites that host other people’s work without the creators permission. It’s disrespectful to the original creators to support sites like that because they try to profit from it by making you pay to not wait for the file that they didn’t even create. Plus, they’re not guaranteed working versions.

Creator News

♦ Basemental Website ♦

I’ve seen a lot of people having issues with Basemental’s website. So, if you’re having trouble with his website (ex. receiving a 404 error), try hard refreshing the website:

  • Click Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl+Shift+R on your keyboard.

If that doesn’t work you can try clearing your cookies/cache or using incognito mode.


♦ MSQ Sims Website Change ♦

All of MSQ’s mods are back on her blog. Her website ( has been removed. So, update your bookmarks.


♦ Congratulations to Icemunmun ♦

We would like to offer icemunmun congratulations on her new Baby MunMun:

New Mods
