Sims 4 UI broken September 2020 Patch

★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
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? I don’t know
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Spooky Stuff, My First Pet Stuff, Moschino Stuff and Tiny Living
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? By loading into the game (?)
What happens when the bug occurs? The UI icons are broken and misplaced
What do you expect to see? Working UI
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I download the September 3rd, 2020 patch update.

After downloading the September patch, my UI is broken. Basically, for a lot of them the colors and shades are blown out so that it’s either extremely hard to see or I can’t see them at all and for the ones that I can see, the icons are broken and misplaced. Like the skills tab has the season icon, the inventory has the eco footprint icon, the center on home lot has the calendar icon, that kind of thing. Also for seasons it’s fall, yet it’s showing suns (for summer) on the seasons graphic when you hover over it. I have some CC, MCCC, UI Extensions Cheats and Memorable Events Mods, but when I uninstall them this issue still shows up. I also tried to repair the game and that didn’t fix it either.

Move your Mods folder to the Desktop and delete localthumbcache.package. Then test the game.

If it works now check for updates to your Mods and CC. Add it back a little at a time while testing until you have found all that are broken.

Please only PM me when asked to do so. Questions and answers belong here so everyone can benefit from them.

I do not work for EA or Origin. I am a player like you that enjoys helping others with their game.

@93milk UPDATE: I found out that I had an outdated UI Extensions mod in my mods folder, so if you're still having this UI problem make sure you check your mods folder for an outdated UI Extensions mod.
