Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update 23/07/2017 (2.2.100) More...
You were waiting for so long, and finally, Mod Conflict Detector has got a viewer! Now you can browse the content of your *.package files.
  • First Launch: During the first launch of the program you'll be advised to tune program settings (choose game dir, default scan dir, etc.)
  • Advanced User Mode: if you're a beginner, you can hide and don't use a number of features that are for advanced users only.
  • The game dir will be detected automatically now.
  • Duplicate search has been improved.
  • Some changes in pop-up menu.
  • Solved some problems with the settings migration (from one version of the program to another).
  • Starting with this version, the program will delete temporary files of version 1.x.
  • Errors fixed, performance improved.




Update 18/06/2017 (2.1.6378.24471) More...
  • Feature added: mod activation/deactivation. Please note: if you have any mods deactivated in 1.x version of the program, they will be converted after the first launch of 2.1 and will no longer be supported by 1.x (1.x *.disable => 2.1 *.disabled).
  • Notifications center updated.
  • File analysis runs faster now.
  • Some errors fixed.


Update 18/06/2017 (2.0.6368.26806) More...
One and a half years sure did fly fast, don't you agree? Sorry for being absent, I was helping Putin to train his bears.
Introducing Mod Conflict Detector 2.0, improved as follows:
  • new interface
  • new CFG editor
  • new filters added
  • improved performance and stability
  • and many more
The program is currently under development, but it's already far better than the previous version. And it's almost bug-free!

Windows XP is not supported anymore.
Thanks you very much for 2 million downloads! Stay tuned for the next update, sometime in 2024 ))


Update 10/22/2016 (1.9.10.9063) More...
  • 40% reduction in RAM usage
  • Chinese translations updated
  • Now you can open .CFG files with Mod Conflict Detector (it won't interfere with the main work of the program)


Update 09/10/2015 (1.9.9.8337) More...
  • The program is completely switched to .NET Framework 4.0 Сlient profile
  • Loading errors fixed
  • Errors of "Find Duplicates Only" mode fixed
  • New checkup algorhythm is 85% faster, albeit uses additional memory
  • For now on, no less than 1 Gb RAM is required for the program to run normally
  • File colors customization is improved (sadly, the previously created settings would not be saved)
  • More convenient access to panels
  • Dialog box errors fixed


Update 01/10/2015 (1.9.1.7925) More...
  • Fixed some errors; performance improved.


Update 31/08/2015 (1.8.7.7743) More...
  • Added online features: 'Send error report' & 'Check for updates'. Now you won't miss the next version of the program!
  • Fixed 'File' mode issues.
  • Fixed the issue when, if 'Find duplicates' checkbox was ticked off, some files were simply left unchecked.
  • Added feature: 'Customize file colors' (Options > Settings > Colors).
  • You can disable any file (almost; see below), but only disabled files can be enabled.
  • The game file cannot be disabled.
  • Performance improved, a bit.
  • CPU loading is more balanced now.
  • New filters for 'Mod Type' & 'Conflicts' columns.
  • Thanks to Aero&Win10 style, the program will now look the same on any supported OS (WinXP still making the list).
  • Various tweaks and improvements; old errors fixed, some brand new ones were made.

Update 19/08/2015 (1.8.5.6993)
  • "File" mode added
  • .CFG-file editor added

  • Added "Files" analysis mode
  • Other tweaks & fixes
  • New localizations: Chinese (zh-CN, zh-TW), Spanish (es-ES)

NOTE: Please extract all files from the archive into a folder before launching the program! To work correctly, the program needs not only .exe file, but all the provided .dll libraries as well.

Hi, my name is DmitryMalfatto. I'm from Russia.
Here's my project, Mod Conflict Detector for The Sims 4. It's a powerful GUI tool for detecting and solving mod conflicts in the game. Allows you to get rid of trouble-making mods, empty mods, mods for another games, or technically-not-even-mods, that got in the Mods folder by mistake. I've been developing this program since February 2015, and now it's finally available not only in Russian, but in English as well!

Main Features:
  • Detect non-TS4 files;
  • Detect stray files (not *.package, *.zip et al, but something that doesn't belong in your Mods folder);
  • Disable (particular) mods;
  • Open file in s4pi;
  • Show file in folder;
  • Delete file(s) straight from the program;
  • Search for duplicate mods;
  • Analyse files (to find out exactly in what way they modify the game);
  • Copy conflicting ResourceKeys.


System Requirements:
  • Operating system: Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10*;
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • .NET Framework 4.6
--------------------
* RT, Phone and Mobile editions are not supported



Additional Credits:
A big thanks and a special mention goes to:
  • adamhathcock for SharpCompress library;
  • creators of Microsoft.Windows.Shell.dll library;
  • creators of s4pi for the inspiration;
  • KuriXarya for the very idea of the program & help with Russian grammar;
  • Petr54 for the testing & ideas on how to improve the program;
  • Postoyalec [ToDoAbout on MTS] for the English translation.

Turn you antivirus off before you do anything. You might have to redownload it. It doesn't have a virus nor is it one but your antivirus will think that it is.

Написал на mixey, но этот сайт, видимо давно заброшен из-за проблем. Потому решил написать тут.
Приветствую выход новой версии программы. Я настолько привык к существующему бездействию по отношению к заброшенной напрочь программе, что так бы и не обнаружил, что программа была обновлена еще в июле. Обнаружение произошло чисто случайно, через такой извилистый путь переходов, что повторить его я не берусь, сие невозможн&#1086. Но, должен сказать, данное событие было приятно, не скрою. Проверил программу поверхностно, но уже вижу недостатки. Если есть интерес воспринимать критику, то могу высказать свои замечания. Некоторые будут косметические, некоторые существенны, поскольку мой опыт тусования на англоязычных форумах по модам симсов позволил сделать вывод, что программа, несмотря на большое количество скачиваний, в практике используется немногими по количеству. В англоязычной среде программа воспринимается неоднозначно. Но дело не в языке (хотя в русскоязычной среде использование программы я не анализирова&#1083. Я всегда рекламировал эту программу, но с удивлением встретил жесткую критику и неприятию. В среде англосаксонской она считается неточной и неверной в результатах, (в русскоязычной среде, повторяю, я не знаю, но мне кажется, отношение будет аналогичны&#1084. Мне не удалось своих жестких оппонентов переубедить, при моем плохом знании английского. Проанализировав результаты, мне кажется, я понял в чем дело. Дело в том что программа дает огромное количество псевдоконфликтов, у меня лично таковых около 50, которые, собственно, конфликтами и не являются, но картину искажают, ведь каждый псевдоконфликт все равно приходится исследовать, а значит тратить время. Это рождает недоверие к программе и отпугивает от нее. Я в природе конфликтов разберусь при моих, пусть даже скромных, программных знаний, а что делать обычному неискушенному пользователю, озабоченному только игрой и подходящими для нее модами. Убедить такого пользователя, англоязычного или русскоязычного, неважно, люди везде одинаковы в данном случае, не представляется возможным. Именно поэтому, мне кажется, моя реклама этой программы программы на форумах не срабатывает. Короче, псевдоконфликты следует убирать из рассмотрения. Тогда работа по выявлению истинных конфликтов упростится и будет намного понятней. Пока коротко так. Будет на то желание, я выскажусь определенней.

I have a question. I am having an issue with the Sims 4 where, when I have mods enabled, everytime I click on the household that I want to play, it just redirects me to the neighborhood selection screen. I downloaded this mod conflict detector, and it found several mods that were broken or causing a conflict, so I deleted those. But the problem is still there. The problem doesn't occur when I don't have mods enabled, but I can't play the game without my mods (there's just so little content in the game without them.) Is there something else I can do to figure out which mod(s) is causing this?

Also, Malwarebytes HATES this program.


I have this same problem, every time I run a scan, it doesn't work, says it can't load files/server error, and all of the files are showing up as "Not Analyzed"

You might have to go the really long and tedious route of removing everything and adding them back in one by one.
Remove your mods, open game, try to open house, close game, add a mod, open game, try to open house, close game, add a mod, open game, try to open house, close game, add a mod.....

TBH I don't think anyone enjoys doing this, but sometimes we have no choice.

I am having the same problem and would like to know if they are false positives. I have currently just been ignoring them since I haven't seen any issues during gameplay, but I'm not sure if that is wise or not.

I've downloaded this for checking my mods which ones are conflicting which ones, but it says there is nothing conflicting, while in game I have known errors in the mods. Is this program not used for this or am I understanding something wrong?
