Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update 03/03/2018 (2.2.300)
Hi friends! I apologize for my absence. Unfortunately I will not develop MCD.I don't have enough time and energy. I have to work hard to make money for moving to another city.
A small update with the removal of ads and networking features will be released soon. Also will be laid out the source code of the program. Anyone will be able to continue the development of MCD.

I hope someone may be able to continue to develop and make MCD the best program for The Sims 4,

Sincerely, Dmitry Tkachev. Your Russian friend

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.)

  • Errors fixed, performance improved.




Update 18/06/2017 (2.1.6378.24471) More...

  • Notifications center updated.
  • File analysis runs faster now.
  • Some errors fixed.


Update 18/06/2017 (2.0.6368.26806) More...

  • The program is completely switched to .NET Framework 4.0 Ñlient profile
  • Loading errors fixed

  • More convenient access to panels
  • Dialog box errors fixed

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.

This is my first post so I may be bad a descriptions...
When I first open the program, there was only one field that you can choose from a drop down menu that selects English. I clicked that, then at the very bottom I clicked the left yellow button "save" in Russian I am guessing. I reopened the program and it is in English now.

I hope that makes sense/helped.

Is it normal to click ignore on a 100 pop ups? Also it crashed just as the scan was complete, then had to fight 100 pop ups again.

This is not working for me. It keeps popping up with an error on the left side of the screen and when I scan my mods folder it says "Not Analyzed" for every single file.

When I open it up, and select scan, it has a red frowny face and it says it failed to scan it. And that's on every single file...5-10 seconds later one of my virus prevention thingys pops up saying "WARNING! This download is trying to delete or change your Electronic Arts folder! Do you want to allow or block this?" At first I clicked block because I didn't know what to do! But then it didn't do much because everytime I clicked block the same thing kept popping up asking me the exact same thing...So I just closed the download and uninstalled it and then reinstalled it and the exact same thing happened again. I just tried it again but this time I thought maybe it wouldn't do anything if I clicked allow. It did the exact same thing, only difference is that I clicked allow. And it still ISN'T scanning my mods! I have to have them scanned because when I open up my Sims 4 game it gets to the "Sims 4" Logo screen with the music and it won't load past that. So I figured maybe I could download this too help...But it's not helping? I have had this download before on another PC I had, and it never had this problem...But then again the program looked a lot different. What should I do? Thanks!

For the people that are having problems using this, the way it worked for me was:

1) Paste all the program files including the separate file for the preferred language into your Mods folder.
2) After clicking the ModConflictDetector application, it will ask you to confirm the settings.
3) Go to the top left of the screen where it says Scan. Of the three scan options, I chose the one that said "Files".
4) Drag and drop the package files from the Mods folder that you wish to scan.
5) Somewhere at the bottom right it will say "Scan", so choose that.
6) Right click the files that come up with conflict instead of "Ready" and choose to delete them. I sent them to the recycle bin. I had to do it for each file separately because I couldn't find a way to delete many at once.

Hope this helps! This app has saved my life many times.

At this point, I have gone to settings and had the settings reset. I then removed the ModConflictDetector and its associated files from the Mods folder and placed them in the base Sims 4 folder. I ran it again and set it up like with the initial first run. Since moving it to the base folder the Detector now works exactly as intended and lists any and all conflicts.


Please direct me step by step how you fixed your problem. I'm having a difficult time. I'm having the same problem you had
Where exactly do I place the conflict detector

you put it directly in the Mods folder, the whole folder.

My game stopped working so i used the detector and it said "unable to load game components disabled by user" but when i click on it nothing happens, there's no explanation on what it means and what to do in that case, if anyone explained it to me i would be really thankful since i of course want my game to work again.
I also wanted to say that i found the older versions nicer aesthetically wise, and they were even easier to use for me, the new update might have more options, but it's harder to use and i'm really lost.
