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.)
  • 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...

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

  • The game file cannot be disabled.
  • Performance improved, a bit.

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.

application stopped working today. it's been working but today when i inserted the files of one of my folders, i realized i had not unpacked one item. but the item could not be unpacked because it was "being used" elsewhere. so, i cleared the 'files' section but i was still getting the same error. so i closed the application. unpacked the zip file. tried to reopen MCD. but now it's just opening and staying at the loading screen. i don't know how to uninstall the app but i have perm. deleted multiple times & redownloaded to no avail. but i know i would need to uninstall because my color settings are still there. so yea. pretty sad about this because i finally almost figured out how to work it & was cleaning up my folders.

So did anyone take on this project yet? It would be so much easier to find any mods that are crapping out without me doing that 50/50 process all the time.
