[PLEASE READ] Usage of Mods and Custom Content
[ Edited ]

The Sims series wouldn't be what it is without Mods and Custom Content. A lot of people use it and that's totally fine. EA doen't official support mods though and you'll be using them at your own risk.


  • A mod is something that changes the game code and because of this, each and every mod needs to be checked with every new patch or they can cause issues.
  • Custom content such as clothing and hair can also become obsolete but not as often. 

For the bug forum, this means that you should


  1. Test your game without mods
  2. Remove all your mods BEFORE the patching process and only put them back if the creators says it's ok to use.

Please do NOT report anything before you have done this. There's a lot of legit issues around and EA doesn't look into errors with mods. You need to take these to the creator of the mod.

Happy Gaming
