  1. Hi! I cant get the sims 4 playable pets mod to work for the life of me. I have script mods enabled and when I move it in the file it shows that its there when I launch the game, It just does not work! I’m beyond frustrated as I just got this pack yesterday and I find it completely boring because I cant control my pets!

  2. Can someone help? I downloaded the mod and put it in my mods folder (it is not on a sub folder) and when I boot up the game it never loads. I’ll be sitting here for 30 minutes or however long on a loading screen.
