Still the fastest method.

 

You can also batch fix some stuff with the Sims 4 Studio (just google) to see if that helps.

 

Other than that, ... 50/50

Hi my sims 4 game won't open because of a corrupted mod, but I have deleted that mod and all of my mods, along with repairing the game, moving my sims 4 folder to my desktop, uninstalling the game and re downloading it, and shutting down my computer but still the message comes up. Is there anything else i can do to fix this?

Hi @youtubeislife552

 

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

Happy Gaming

@plurplesimmer
After the next update, you should know. that all mods will be not work because EA goes with the game to another Python script.
You have to wait until the creators of mods recover from this shock. After this you can start collecting their new mods again.

Only modifications that interfere in the scripts of the game will need to be replaced.
1. Before updating, I recommend removing the entire Mods folder to your computer desktop.
2. Then update the game.
3. From the Mods folder, removing all mods with scripts (tip of"script, pyo and other endings).
We leave only mods / CCwith the tip .package.

By the way, if you do not want to have problems with old CC / mods, I recommend subfolders in the Mods folder.
Each of them is called the nickname of its creator. And add mods/ CC to such a subfolder.
Inside, you can also insert a card with the link of the site of the creator.
This way you will quickly find old CC / mod - incompatible with the game.
