Broken/Updated Mods: Jan. 25th Patch

- Advertisement -

New Game Update 1.83.24 (Patch Notes) is out and you know what that means! That’s right, time to check your mods for updates! Please backup saves and files before using any untested mod.

If these Mod Lists help you, consider becoming a patron! Maintaining this list is very time consuming, so I very much appreciate any donation. The more support I have, the more time I can spend on it for you. Downloadable daily summaries for changes made to the list are available for my patrons.

How This Works

  • I do not offer game support here. If you need help with your game, I recommend trying one of these support servers:
  • Every patch I will start a new Broken/Updated post (unless it’s a hotfix patch). All mod statuses (except those set to Broken) will reset back to Unknown.
  • I do not track patron only mods/updates, I will add them when they’re available to everyone.
  • I will continue to update the list between patches when I have time.
  • To navigate this post, I suggest using the Table of Contents below.

Reporting in Discord/Comments

If you prefer, you can send your report(s) via SimsVIP discord. Please submit your report(s) to the #mod-reports channel.

Alternatively, you can submit via comment, please use the proper templates provided below to submit your report(s), otherwise it may get ignored! All off-topic comments will be deleted!


BEFORE reporting a mod as Broken:

  • Make sure you have Enable CC/Mods and Script Mods Allowed enabled in your Game Options (these usually have to be re-enabled after each patch).
  • Delete your localthumbcache from your Sims 4 folder, then test the mod ALONE with no other mods installed.

NOTE – If you are having an issue with a mod that’s listed as Updated or Compatible, please report it to the creator! Mods listed as Compatible or Updated will NOT be changed to Broken without confirmation (either by my testing or confirmed by the creator)!

Mod Users – Please do not use this list to tell creators that their mod is broken. Please have patience and remember they have lives and other priorities.

List of mods that received a Patch Status change today, this gets updated as I change them in the list. Check daily because the changes will only be viewable until the next day. To my patrons, everything will be included in your downloadable daily summaries, so you won’t miss anything.

If this list is empty, then no changes were made to the list (yet) today.


Custom Content

Objects, clothes, hair, makeup, re-colors, etc. This is NOT a compiled list as the mods are because there is WAY too much out there. However, I’ll list any CC that broke for this patch below when it receives an update:

      • None reported yet, check back later.

Common Questions/Answers

  • Something is wrong with my game, what do I do?
    • First, move your Mods folder to your Desktop, clear your caches, then test on a NEW SAVE. Are you still experiencing the issue?
      • Yes – Then it’s likely a bug. Check the Bug Reports forum to see if it’s listed there, if it is please make sure to “Me Too” it.
      • No – Then it’s something in your Mods folder. Please do the 50/50 method to find which mod is causing it. When you find the culprit, please send a Broken Mod Report!
  • Any word on <insert mod name here>?
    • If there’s no status for the mod, then there’s no word. Please remember, I don’t track CC (Hair, Eyes, Makeup, Skins, Objects, Re-colors, etc) that didn’t break.  If you’re waiting on an update, please have patience and give creators time.
  • My <insert CC name here> doesn’t work anymore, what do I do?
    • Check the Custom Content section, I keep a list of CC types that are reported broken.
  • Is <insert mod name> working, I can’t find on the list!?
    • Make sure you have checked all tabs in the list (including Obsolete). If you’re positive it isn’t on the list, then let me know so I can add it.
  • <Insert mod name> isn’t working.
    • Make sure you have the latest update. If you have the latest version, then test without any other mods/cc installed. Contact the creator if it’s still not working, be sure to include details on how exactly it isn’t working.
  • I can’t find which mod in my game broke!
