Re: CC Doors and Windows not functional after september 3th patch (2020)


If you do not want to update your game, disable automatic updates and play offline.

Not directed at you but are people really not aware that they can do this, 6 years into the game? Or is it not taking the time to understand the risks involved with 3rd party content and blindly updating without checking to see if there are any reported issues?

I did now. Unfortunately to late. I did not know that i could stop the automatical updates and i never had such an issue before.


i know that i am not irresponsible on that issue, but i can't understand how ea could * like that on their gamers, within a game that relly lives and dies with CC.


As i read here that some of the OC windows don't work too, I really hope they will fix it. At the moment i have abloutely no interest in playing the sims ever again.

Sims 4 CC windows, doors broken after September 2020 patch

★★ Newbie

Hello, after September 2020 patch in Sims 4, there are CC doors and windows broken. Is there any chance that you can fix it in early, or do I have to download new CC, which is comatible with patch? Tahnk you.

Hey, some people aren't aware and that's ok. Thank you for educating others. Now I can turn off my updates, never knew I could do that, despite playing since  the beginning. But for me, personally, the game is unplayable without cc. I think this goes for the people concerned as well. Issues and bugs are just a part of the game, cc or not.

@aimster68 and @bosinovmar  I've merged your posts with the master thread on this issue.  The recent update added new functionality for doors and windows, and cc items don't have that built in.  So you'll need to wait for updates from the creators, or perhaps a batch fix from Sims 4 Studio.

My windows and doors will not show up on my walls, use mods and cc, and its only for the custom windows and doors.
