Hey everyone!

As most of you know, the EP patch releases on Tuesday, June 2nd! Which is right around the corner! So, I wanted to reach out to give you a few tips and reminders!

  • Be Patient – I cannot stress this enough! Do NOT ask modders if their mods work. It’s distracting and frustrating when we’re asked the status of our mods 20 minutes after the patch goes live. It does NOT help! Give us time, we have lives too and not all modders can check right away. When we know, you’ll know.

  • Assume all mods are broken until the creators confirm otherwise. This is a BIG patch and a ton of mods will break/need updated. If you want to avoid game issues/LEs, do NOT try to play with your mods until they’re confirmed to be working by the creator ONLY. Even through testing in the game, a mod can appear to be working but still need an update.

  • If you can’t play without your mods, there’s a few things you can do:
    • First Option – Don’t patch until the mods that you can’t live without are updated or confirmed compatible. To do this, you’ll need to disable the Automatic Game Updates options located in Origin > Application Settings and switch Origin to Offline Mode (Origin > Go Offline).
    • Second Option – Patch but only play on a new or throwaway save without mods.  To do this, you’ll want to move your Mods folder to your Desktop and delete your localthumbcache file in your Sims 4 folder. Keep your Mods folder on your Desktop until you have updated all of them (or they’re confirmed compatible).  

  • When your mods are finally updated and you’re ready to use them, don’t forget to re-enable Enable CC/Mods and Script Mods Allowed in your Game Options.
For MY mods

After the patch hits, please check my Mod Status page. It receives live updates as I’m checking my mods. So, check there often. I also suggest joining my discord where you can use the #role-yourself channel to receive a notification when all of my mods are updated.

Unrelated to the upcoming patch, I’ve been contemplating removing my mods from Mod The Sims. I haven’t made any final decisions yet, but that’s where I’m leaning. I’m at the point where I don’t want to upload updated mods to multiple places and removing my site isn’t an option that I’d ever consider. Therefore, MTS will draw the short stick. All of my mods on MTS are located here though, so you’ll still have access to them.

To my Patrons

Starting June 1st, I will no longer be accepting requests. I’m drowning in requests right now, with no end in sight. Because of that, I haven’t been able to work on my own projects, leading me to not want to mod at all (which is one of the reasons for the lack of content from me).

I’ve replaced the request benefit with the ability to vote on my upcoming content. This may include mod ideas, mod order release, mod features, etc.

If you’ve already made requests, don’t worry they will be fulfilled. However, I can’t give an ETA on them, especially with this new patch coming out. I do have a couple outstanding mod requests that the requesters never replied to me when I asked them questions on what they want. If I don’t receive answers, these requests will be dropped. If you can’t take the time to answer simple questions, then I can’t take the time to make your mod.

So, if you have any requests please get them in by May 31st because starting June 1st they won’t be accepted. I’m sorry, but I need to start modding for me again.

Patch 1.62 Mod Status

All of my mods are compatible for today’s patch. Please let me know if you experience any issues.

March News

Hey everyone!

As you may have noticed I have been semi-active lately. Unfortunately, I’ve been going through some things in real-life that has affected my desire to be on my computer, let alone create mods.

First, I’ve been sick off and on for the past couple months (cold, flu, or both). Can’t seem to keep it away. Although I am feeling better now, just got to get rid of this cough. So, don’t worry.

However, the main reason I haven’t been modding is my grandma is not doing so well. Back in January my grandma went to the hospital for heart failure. She has so many health problems (dementia, diabetes, and she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year) that they couldn’t do much to treat her. So, they decided to put her in hospice to keep her comfortable, she’s 79 years old.

This news was devastating to me. We’re so close and she helped raise me (my mom had me when she was 16). Back in 2009, we moved from Ohio to Nevada and although I’ve been staying in touch with her and talking to her on the phone, it was the last time I saw her. Shortly after I moved, she moved to Florida so my aunt could take care of her. I haven’t been able to go see her because my plane ride when we moved here was the first time that I had a severe panic attack (it was so bad I thought it was a heart attack and I was going to die on that plane). I haven’t been able to get on a plane since. So, I’ve been beating myself up over moving away and not being able to visit her. She understands, but I still can’t help but feel guilty. She’s still doing ok, but we all know it’s only a matter of time and I can tell she knows in her voice when I speak to her. So, I’ve been a little depressed lately and haven’t been doing things that I usually love to do.

I hope you all understand. I apologize for not putting out new content (apart from the quick mod a couple weeks ago) and I feel terrible about it. I know I’m very behind in requests and I will get to them when I can. However, I need to get my desire to work on them back first because you all deserve my best work. I do have a lot of my own mod ideas as well that I know you all will love. So, hopefully I can get to them soon. I will keep my mods updated no matter what, so if there’s a patch check for updates.

Thank you all for your support, I’m so happy to have so many of you that enjoy using my mods.

No Autonomous Change Channels

Samantha is sitting there watching the cooking channel. Then, all of a sudden her roommate Joe sits down and changes the channel. This mod stops inconsiderate Sims like Joe from autonomously changing the TV channel. You can still direct them to change it though if you desire to control the inconsiderate Sim, no judgement here.

Mod Update

Faster Homework (University Edition)
The Brainiacs Organization “Finish Homework” task will now complete with this mod installed. The task had to run for 60 minutes by default, which of course wouldn’t happen with this mod installed. I removed the time requirement, so it will now fulfill.
