This little Package deletes/hides the Intro-Movies of EA & Maxis and of "The Sims 4".

I've attached two zip files, each containing one package:
  • "Intro Entfernt.zip": It is for all german users, it deletes the EA & Maxis Intro + "Die Sims 4" Intro.
  • "No Intro.zip": It is for all users, it deletes the EA & Maxis Intro + "The Sims 4" Intro of every language (german too).

[INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS]
As it was mentioned in the comments section, Nicole K. Games had uploaded a usefull video on YouTube.
She perfectly explains how to install Custom Content like this "No Into"-Mod. So if you're not 100% familiar with installing Mods, you could have a look at her video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaaMbx0ESn8

[HOW IT WORKS]
The Packages containing empty AVI files. I've searched for all intro movies in the Sims 4 Packages with s4pe and found out, that they are only compiled into the "ClientFullBuild1.package".
Then I've exported all of this AVI files and found the following instance IDs containing the intro movies:
  • 0x799AE80054CEE156: EA & Maxis Intro
  • 0xE096C99F0C5579B6: "Los Sims 4" Intro
  • 0xE096CA9F0C557B08: "The Sims 4" Intro with Japanese sub
  • 0xE096CB9F0C557D59: "The Sims 4" Intro with Korean sub
  • 0xE096CE9F0C558228: "De Sims 4" Intro
  • 0xE096C39F0C556FFD: "The Sims 4" Intro with Chinese sub
  • 0xE096C69F0C5574DE: "Les Sims 4" Intro
  • 0xE096C89F0C557877: "Die Sims 4" Intro
  • 0xE096C99F0C5579AB: "The Sims 4" Intro
After that I created a package with s4pe, import 9 empty AVI files and set there instance ID to the IDs given above.
That's it

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:
1. Download: Click the File tab to see the download link. Click the link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.
Read the upload description for installation instructions. If nothing else is specified, do the following:
No Extraction Required (Script Mods):
1. Cut and paste the .zip file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
Script mods need to be placed directly in \Mods or one level below that (e.g. \Mods\Scripts) – sub-folders nested any deeper won’t work.

1. Use WinRAR (Windows) to extract the .package file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).
2. Cut and paste the .package file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\


Need more information?
  • Anyone can use both .rar and .zip files easily! On Windows, use WinRAR.
  • If you don't have a Mods folder, just make one.
  • Mod still not working? Make sure you have script mods enabled

Thank you! I want to note that the installation instructions are for Sims 2 downloads. I created a Downloads folder in the Sims 4 directory and put the file there, and it didn't work. So I put it in the Mods folder, and it did work. So if anyone else is puzzled about where to put it, put it in Mods.

You're right. On September 5, I have already informed the MTS administrators in a thread about it. http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=532967
They will update the Install Instructions as soon as possible.

Yes this is normal, in my german version is it, too. I think the developers want that after the Sims 4 Intro "The Sims 4"-Logo still remains, if the game is not fully charged.
Another possibility for the developers would have been stopping the Sims 4 Intro video at the last frame.

They simply set the last frame of the intro video as a constant image in the end.

Now when I run the game, it doesn't show EA & Maxis Intro, instead, it shows the "The Sims 4".
Is this suppose to be happen?
By the way, I have USA version of the game.

Of course! No Intro and no mosaic are the must haves for Sims gamers

Interesting mod, saves time! However, "The Sims 4" intro page still shows up (not working as expected, based on description).

But still, thank you very much!

EDIT: Sorry, didn't look at the comments above before posting mine about the unexpected problem. ><

I thought about creating a script to complete skip the start page and go directly into the current game (world overview).
But If you have more than 1 savegames, you couldn't change the one you want. So I decided to work for another modification:
