The Sims 4: SimGuruGraham Addresses The Custom Content Text Strings Issues

Many Custom Content users have been reporting broken text and missing interactions on Custom Content items after the last update was released.

SimGuruGraham released a statement over at the official The Sims Forums to address the issues that many Simmers have been facing and to say that the team are already looking into the problem and will be fixing it just in time for the next update which will be released in the near future.

Here is what he had to say:

Hi all,

Those of you who play with mods or custom content may have noticed that some custom text (names, descriptions, etc) that is part of a mod/CC have either gone blank, or switched to displaying “**DEBUG**” (on game version PC / Mac This was an unintentional side effect of the 4/16 update. The Sims 4 team is planning on releasing another update in the near future specifically to address this issue, which will restore the text as it was displayed previously.

Technical info:
The issue we’ve identified is that any user-generated content authored using strings in string tables with non-zero group ids will show up in-game as blank. Changing string tables to use 0x00000000 for group id can be used as a temporary workaround for creators who do not want to wait until the next update. The next update will not cause conflicts with this workaround. Long term, we do strongly recommend that mod/cc creators have the top bit set (for example, 0x80000000) to avoid conflicts with Maxis created content.
