Compatible with the June 11 patch, with some caveats:



Introduction

Unlike The Sims 3, TS4 is pretty good at keeping the town populated, in my opinion. There are more than enough new townies in each generation for my Sims to find friends, enemies and partners and to prevent the town from stagnating. There's a slight problem, though. Vanilla TS4 includes a population limit of 180 Sims. Since this includes dead Sims as well as living Sims, anyone playing for a long enough time will usually reach the limit, at which point the game will begin deleting any new Sims that enter the town, making the game pretty much unplayable. This mod will disable this functionality, preventing any Sims from disappearing.

This mod will also stop the mass culling that happens upon loading a game since the March 26 patch.

Mod Effects

This mod replaces the culling action in the game's Python files via scripting. The replacement action has no function, so when the game attempts to run the culling action, nothing will happen.

Compatibility

This mod was based on game version 1.5.139.1020 (March 26 patch) but it should work just fine on previous patch levels as the culling function is exactly the same.

Conflicts

This mod edits the StoryProgression.Actions Python file. It is incompatible with any other mods that do so (though, as far as I know, no such mods exist yet).

Known Issues

Some users have reported that loading screen times seem to increase if you have an exorbitant amount of Sims in your world. Use this mod at your own risk.

Install

Place the .zip file in your Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods folder. Do not unzip it. When you enter the game, ensure that Scripting Mods are enabled in the Options menu.

Additional Credits:
Scumbumbo and Deaderpool for help with writing the Python function.

Does this mod still work? Because the anti-relationship mod does not cover things like the family trees...

Seems to be working in my game. I've not noticed any Sims vanishing recently.

Mod Conflict Detector says its "wrong content-type script". It's in a folder, inside the zip still. All other script mods aren't like that. Also, the game won't load and crashes with it.

^^ but that's only your experience with it because it doesn't crash my game, and it loads just fine.

I need to know if this still works because I'm having issues with sims disappearing, and every time my sim get his wife pregnant she disappears, and its getting quite annoying. I managed to save the household while she's pregnant but everytime I try to place the family she pregnant wife disappears.. is this a culling issue or something else? PLEASE HELP!!

Your Sim from a PLAYED household is getting deleted? That's not normal. Even if culling is still happening in your game it should only be getting rid of dead Sims and homeless Sims, not played Sims.

its not my actual sim but she is married to my sim and she's pregnant and every time she is she gets deleted from the household, when I travel and come back she is gone. she is a townie that I've edited if that makes a difference, i dont know. its been really frustrating and makes playing sims hard.
