Hey c_major! Amazing application, great work, Thank You!

I hope that one day there will be version with ability to find strings (CTRL+F) or at least option to sort strings. Didn't noticed the export and import option for the first time.

Dont give him ideas =P .. this is not a mod, its a tool, and as such is in the perfectly right place here. (There may be a Tools downloads section too at some point if it looks like we need one, but right now there isnt.)

Thanks a lot for posting this here. Once people start creating script or other text editing mods for Sims 4, this'll be handy if they'd like to translate their work for others to use.

How do I use this tool to add a string? It doesn't seem to stick when i do it. Also, can I use it to make a new STBL file from an XML, or is there a better tool for that?

Open your STBL, Click on the right bottom button "Edit". And in the appearing window, there is an button on the left bottom corner named "Add new String".

Thank you so much for this! It has proved most useful for something I wanted to try out.

ETA: Just wondering, is it possible to create String replacement mods without having to include EVERY string in the game? When I attempted to include only the strings that I had edited it caused all in-game text to appear as **[random number]** instead.

While the tool is great for looking at the Strings_ENG_US.package, there is no search functionality, or ability to create a stbl with one key/string in xml format. If I import one xml entry I can't save it as a new stbl. If I try to save the application states I have no stbl open.

I don't want to add or modify a key in the original package, since it is like a core change. Am I missing something in either this tool or s4pe?

For Menaceman44, are you sure you preserved the key/hash on the string you are trying to replace?

I have a nearly-blank string table and it seems to work. Just replace my entries with the ones you want. Just make sure the instance number is different from the original string table.

Ultimately, this is the better way because it means any additions to the string table don't get stomped by the mod.

I have no idea. This is rather new territory to me. I extracted the STBL file and opened it in Notepad where I altered the text I wanted to change and deleted all other text in there before re-importing it all.

If anyone wants to see the contents of the Strings_ENG_US without exporting the whole thing, I exported it as XML and copy-pasted it here: http://sims-4-files.wikia.com/wiki/Strings_ENG_US

I'm thinking you mean how to disable an interaction from showing up in the pie menus? If so that has nothing to do with the string tables themselves, you should probably post your question in the Modding Discussion forum.
