Important Info

  • I do not offer game support. If you need help with your game, I recommend visiting a discord support server (either Sims After Dark or Deaderpool).
  • Every patch (unless otherwise stated) I will start a new Broken/Updated post at SimsVIP.
  • When a new patch releases, all mod statuses (except those set to Broken) will reset to a blank status. A blank mod status means that I haven’t seen or received news for it.
  • I do not track patron only mods/updates, I will add them when they’re available to everyone.
  • If a mod is updated for translations only, the status will not change to Updated unless it’s a blank status.
  • Please keep in mind I’m ONE person managing this list and I do have a life outside of it. Therefore, I’ll update the list when I can.

The Mod List – How to Use

The Mod List Guide

Note – This is an image of the Mod List, so you can’t interact with it. The actual Mod List is here.
  1. Mod Status Key – Click on that image (in the Mod List) to see a description of what each status means.
    • Reminder – No status means I haven’t seen or received news on that mod yet.
  2. Filters (Default filter is All Mods) – Filter the mods by any of these options. For example, if you select Broken Mods you’ll only see broken mods in the list.
    • TIP – Select Latest Changes/Updates to see which mods received a recent status change (no more than one week old).
    • Make sure to select All Mods to reset your current filter.
  3. Search Box – Search the mod list for any mod or creator. Ctrl + F does NOT work with this mod list, so you’ll have to use this Search Box instead.
    • When using the search box, just start typing what you want to search for. Do NOT hit Enter, doing so clears/resets the search and shows all mods! There’s nothing I can do about this.
    • TIP – You can apply a filter and then use the search bar. For example, if I wanted to make sure there were no broken mods from a specific creator I would select the Broken Mods filter and then enter the creator name in the search box. That would show only broken mods (if any) from that creator.
  4. Sorting – Want to sort the list by Creator? Hover over where it says Creator and click on the sorting icon that pops up (as shown). You can do this for all columns except for Notes.
  5. Pagination – Want to see more mods per page? Click where it says “10” above (default view is 20 in the actual Mod List) to choose between 10, 20, 50, 100, or 500.

Mods/CC that I do NOT track

  • Custom Content Including: Hair, Makeup, Clothes, Re-colors, Objects (that don’t add new or custom gameplay), Skins, etc.
  • Animations
  • Poses
  • CAS Backgrounds
  • Loading Screens
  • Mod Translations (Stand Alone Versions) – the status for these would be the same as the actual mod, so no reason for me to track them.
  • Excluded Mods/Creators (see more info below)

Excluded Mods/Creators + How They Can Be Added Back

Unfortunately, there are some creators that I do not feel comfortable tracking. However, please keep in mind that just because I don’t track them, it doesn’t mean I have beef with them. I have no ill-feelings towards any of them, so please stop spreading that misinformation around. With that being said, I do not track the following:

  • Mods that add rape, pedophilia, or bestiality are banned. This includes all mods by CN (ColonolNutty) and mods from other creators that require any of his files. More detailed info on why CN is bad (thank you TurboDriver!).
    • Permanently banned, will never be added to the list.

  • Creators that steal (or have stolen) other creator’s mods/codes.
    • Can be added back if they stop stealing and publicly apologize to those that they stole from. Although trust would have to be built back up before they’re added back.

  • Creators that have a pirated game. This is not a moral reason, I don’t care that deeply. Unfortunately, pirated game files aren’t reliable enough to create and maintain mods. They’ve been proven to cause issues.
    • Can be added back if it’s proven they no longer pirate.

  • Creators that consistently keep their mods/updates behind a permanent (or more than 3 weeks) paywall.
  • Creators that consistently put out poor quality mods (always causing LE’s, extremely bad bugs/glitches, etc….even when updated).
    • Can be added back when/if they improve.

  • Creators that are rude/disrespectful to me.
    • Can be added back if I receive a genuine apology.

The Mod List FAQ

How often is the Mod List updated?

Very frequently! When I am working on the list, I’m in the zone so I don’t stop until I’m caught up with everything.

  • Patch weeks – I update it every day, multiple times a day. Plus, as needed when I receive mod news through reports and emails.
  • Non-patch weeks – Usually at least 1-2 times a day, plus as needed.

I do take days off here and there as well, but only on non-patch weeks.

Why is <insert mod/creator name here> not included in the list?

The Obsolete and NSFW Mod Lists often get overlooked, so check those.

If you still can’t find a mod and/or creator in any of the lists, please use the Mod Submission report because I no longer add new mods unless they’re submitted/requested to be tracked.

Also, keep in mind that there are a few modders/creators that I don’t track. See Excluded Mods/Creators and the next question below for more details.

Can you tell us exactly why <insert creator name here> is excluded from the mod list?

No, I’m sorry….I don’t tell people exactly why a creator is excluded to avoid drama. More importantly, to protect the ones that I’m not tracking from being bullied or openly trash talked, which WOULD occur if I shared this information. Just because I don’t track them, it doesn’t mean I want them harassed…please respect that. I’m not stopping you from using their mods, I’m just simply not tracking them.

Just to clarify, the only reason I name ColonolNutty is because his mods are so severe and disgusting, that he doesn’t deserve discretion. Plus, the use of his mods will get you an automatic ban from nearly all discord servers (and rightfully so).

With all that said, please don’t assume you know why I don’t track a certain creator. I don’t have “personal beef” with any of them, so please don’t spread false information. Even the ones that I’m not tracking because they were disrespectful, I wouldn’t consider myself having beef with them. They disrespected me, I removed their mods, end of story.

Any word/news on <insert mod name here>?

If there’s no status for the mod, then there’s no word. Please remember, I don’t track CC (Hair, Eyes, Makeup, Skins, Objects, Re-colors, etc). If you’re waiting on an update, please have patience and give creators time.

Why is <insert mod name here> listed as broken when it’s working for me?

If it’s an unconfirmed broken mod that’s working for you, feel free to leave a comment in the Broken Mod Reports [Unconfirmed] spreadsheet to let me know. If the mod in question isn’t listed there, then it’s confirmed broken (either by my testing or from another modder).

Mods get listed as broken for one (or more) of the following reasons:

  • Causes LastExceptions – Any mod that causes replicable LastExceptions. Some creators may claim the LE’s that their mod causes are harmless, and in some cases they may be correct. However, I’m not sorting through which ones may be safe and which ones aren’t.
  • Includes Numerous Bugs/Glitches – Any mod that has an excessive amount of bugs/glitches. However, if it’s just a few harmless bugs and/or known issues they will not be listed as broken.
  • Breaks (Vanilla) Game Features – Any mod that unintentionally breaks game features.
  • Not Working as Intended – Any mod that doesn’t do what it’s described to do.
  • Confirmed Broken by the Creator.

Also, keep in mind sometimes even if a mod appears to be working, it doesn’t always mean it is (which is why I only accept compatible reports from creators). I’m a modder myself, so I know what to look for and how to check for broken mods even without testing.

Why are there not many mods listed in Latest Changes/Updates?

Mods listed there are automatically cleared every Monday between 8am-9am (Pacific Time). The filter is called Latest Changes/Updates for a reason. Other than that, there actually needs to be mod news happening…I can’t very well create it out of thin air lol.

Where’s the spreadsheet link?

The spreadsheet link will no longer be shared at this time. See here for more details.

Why did you move the sorting options to the bottom of the list? (Obsolete)

I’m aware that it’s much more convenient at the top. I don’t change things around for the fun of it though, there’s ALWAYS a reason.

In this case, I had to move them to the bottom because of the way google sheet embeds work. When they were at the top, people were able to access and bookmark the google sheet. I have enough people not reading the instructions when they are right there on the page. Now, imagine how much reading will not be done if everyone goes directly to the google sheet instead.

I did shorten the height of the list embed so you don’t have to scroll to the bottom of the embed to find (and switch between) the sorting options.
