Updated January 9, 2019 - The mod has been updated to be current with the December 20, 2018 game patch, including all new repairable objects from the Get Famous expansion.

August 19, 2018 Update - Added an optional bugfix add-on for generic trash piles, which by default will always magically leave scroungeable parts behind if they are dropped.


This is a mod for The Sims 4 to remove the leftover "upgrade" parts that are found during a repair action. Sims can buy upgrade parts from the computer -- they aren't expensive, and selling off the huge collection a sim ends up with from normal repairs is a tiresome bother so they just end up cluttering inventory.

Besides, you shouldn't have useable leftover parts -- that is probably why everything breaks so often!

There are two flavors of the mod - You should only install one or the other. One leaves only a pile of broken parts (non-salvageable), the other leaves nothing behind which is cheating and doesn't give the kiddies a trash pile to play in, but I think a lot of Simmers prefer that version.

Installation and Compatibility

Just unzip the package file to your Mods folder as usual.

This mod may cause conflicts with any other mod which changes the repair actions. Due to the wide variety of mods and sources for them, it is unlikely I will be able to help you with such a conflict. If there is a conflict, either one or both mods may fail to work properly, your game may crash, frogs may rain down from the sky...

This mod requires The Sims 4 to be patched to at least version 1.48.94 (December 20, 2018).

This is a multi-part download:

There are two versions of this mod, please use only one of them. You can change which version you use freely -- remember if you do so that you need to remove the old version from your Mods folder!
