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.)

  • 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).

  • 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!

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.

Another Mod Conflict Detector Program is Available - Sims 4 Tray Importer
There is a program called Sims 4 Tray Importer at luniversims.com (a French Sims site). I recommend Google Translate for all websites not in your native language. The link above sends you directly to the download page. Sims 4 Tray Importer has auto-detect multiple language support.

To discover problems all you need to do is select TOOLS, then choose Find Conflicts. As long as you have pointed the program at your mods directory, it will show you Mods - Broken, Mods - Identical, Mods - Modified, Mods - Overrides, and Mods - Conflicts. Delete the broken and download more up to date versions (or don't), delete one or the other of the Identicals (you cannot delete directly from the program, but it will allow you to open the folder and point directly at the file in question). I recommend leaving the Modified and Overrides alone unless you know what you are doing. Then run the program again after taking care of Broken and Identicals to insure they are gone. If there are a large number of Conflicts, you might - might - have a problem that could then be diagnosed with TMEX's Better Exceptions and the help of the community.
