If your Sims 4 CC windows broke after the September update, there might be an easy way to fix the problem soon.
The September Sims 4 update to the base game, introduced the ability to stack windows freely on top of each other. Players can now also place windows above doors on higher walls without causing clipping issues.
But for Simmers who play with lots of custom content in The Sims 4, the update has been a bit of a disaster.
The patch left Sims 4 CC windows, doors and arches pretty much unusable. The change to allow for the stacking of windows might seem minor, but game code is far more complicated than that.
CC doors and windows are technically still usable, but the update means that none of these are rendering properly when placed on walls.
While custom content and mods often glitch or break during a Sims update, these can usually be fixed quite easily.
Out of date or just bad Sims 4 CC can easily be found and deleted with The Sims 4 Tray Importer.
But this update did not just impact bad CC. It impacted every single window, door and arch from custom content creators – even the ones recently released.
Fortunately, there might be a fix soon, thanks to the very kind and generous folks who run The Sims 4 Studio.
This independent application has saved players a lot of frustration in the past with its batch fixes for other fundamental updates and they hope to find a solution for this, too.
The folks who work on The Sims 4 Studio application all work full-time jobs, though, so you will have to sit tight a little while longer.
Releasing a batch fix for this patch is a bit of a complicated task too. Because there are so many varied shapes and sizes of doors, windows and arches, all the variables need to be assessed so that the fix can be as comprehensive as possible.
