About this mod

I've made this tiny little mod as a command I used whenever I was curious about my town's population. Type "getpopulation" and you'll get the number of people living across all of the worlds in The Sims 4.



Installation

Install this mod by copying the zip file (do not extract it) to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder.

Inside the game, make sure that script mods are enabled (... > Game Options > Other > Script Mods)

Enjoy this tiny mod.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Getpopulation won't help with townie issues, it just reports the total number.

MC Command Center may be what you're looking for. It does a LOT of really nice things, depending on what parts you install, and how you set it all up. It isn't hard, and (creator) Deaderpool is Very Helpful.

when i type "getpopulation" it says unable to execute command. i didn't extract the zip file and i put it directly in my mods folder. no subfolder or anything. and also the script mods is enabled.

It sounds like you're probably trying to use it at the map screen or something like that. I get that error message if I try to use it there. Load up a lot and then it works fine. (At least it does for me.) Seems to be a limitation of when the game will allow the script to run.

FGS use command get_pop in MC Command Center instead.

Then you can get more detailed info about the population.
By adding one or more of these options on the command line you get detailed info about:

"h"-Includes names of hidden Sims.
"p"-Includes names of pregnant Sims.
"a"-Includes names of alien Sims.
"m"-Includes names of married Sims.
"f"-Include marks and flags.
"c"-List Sim careers.
"s"-Includes names of Single Sims.
"cl"-shows club membership for Sims.
"g"-shows ghost Sims.
"lot"-limits results to only Sims on the current lot.
