I found how to fix this after an hour of repairing my game.

 

Repairing the game did not the trick. But I realized that the GameVersion file in my Documents folder were not the same as the real game version.

 

If you have the same problem, check in Documents>ElectronicArts>TheSims4 et find the GameVersion file. Open it, and see what number is written.

 

Open you game. Check at the bottom of the home page of your game. If the game versions are different, change the one in the file you opened just before for it to match the one written in your game. Worked for me.

Since Sims 4 update Mods will not load?

★★ Novice

Without my mods I can np longer play Sims 4.  The latest update ALWAYS disables the MODS. Restarting makes NO difference. Really upset as without my few mods, I can no longer play Sims 4.?

Re: Since Sims 4 update Mods will not load?

@Lionhart127  Are script mods still enabled in settings?  Sometimes the change to reenable them doesn't stick.  In that case, the fix is to delete options.ini (in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4) and let the game generate a new one.  You'll need to redo all your in-game settings, but hopefully the mod setting will stick this time around.

 

If mods are enabled but not showing up, your particular mods might be outdated and incompatible with the current patch.  In that case, check with the creators to see whether there are updated versions, and replace whatever you can.

I can confirm that your fix worked for me. Thank you, I was really looking forward to playing as I just started a new lot and the Hispanic Heritage items will really fit in.

Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.67.45.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Island Living, Seasons, Get Together. Moschino Stuff, Laundry Day, Outdoor Retreat, Spooky Stuff, Kitchen Stuff, and Romantic Garden.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know?
What happens when the bug occurs? The mods are ALWAYS showing as disabled, even after ticking mods in game settings and re-starting. This has ONLY happened since last update!
What do you expect to see? After ticking mods and re-starting Sims4, I expect to see the mods ENABLED!

Please describe the patch or change you made. The latest update 1.67.45.1020. Before this update there was no problem?

I am really upset by this.  Some mods were created myself. My account Avatar has a mod, long blond hair!  I am sick to death of patches and updates upsetting game settings.  Not just Sims4, but other games, sims and apps. If this can not be fixed I will NOT be playing Sims4 anymore, and will NOT entertain buying any Origin/EA games again!!!

Re: Mods are always disabled since update?

Hero
@Lionhart127 Try deleting the options.ini file. You then need to reset all options to what you had them (as that resets everything to default) but usually changes stick after doing that.

Happy Gaming

CC Not Showing up after update but it says it's already enabled

★★★ Newbie

So basically, The Sims 4 would do the start up screen and then just be white, and it wouldn't let me exit it without restarting my entire computer. But, I fixed that and recently I've started downloading CC. Buuuut when I go into the game and go into CAS none of the CC is there, and it said that CC and script mods where already enabled when I went to go do it, I even un-enabled it and re-enabled it and exited my game. It seems like nothings working and it's stressing me out- Right now I'm trying to repair the game but I'm probably just messing it up more, I've tried fixing it for about an hour now and I've just lost hope :/

Same thing happen to me too. When I enabled my mods it doesnt work. Then I would go back into the game with the same setting. I even try deleting the option in my sims 4 folder yet it still didn't work. It may be EA its self.

SIMS 4 CC

★★★ Newbie

I have recently updated my game of sims 4. All my saves are still there and so are my preferred settings. However, everytime I start the game It tells me to re-enable my mods. I have done this multiple times and repaired the game. I can play any of my saves but CC and mods will just simply not be there
