Released the game patch on 10/01/2014. I confirmed that this mod worked with the patch.
Updating for compatibility is NOT needed. So you can keep using this mod that you downloaded.
And I added information about the compatibility with the patches. For details, see "Compatibility with the game patches" section.


This mod unlocks all locked objects in build buy mode.



What is this?

While this mod is enabled, All locked objects in build buy mode are unlocked automatically.
You can buy locked objects even if your sim have not met the unlocking requirement.

This means that you don't have to make your sim go to the extremes of careers and skills to buy locked object.



Installation

Just put the downloaded zip file into your "Mods" folder.
(ex. C:\Users\Someone\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\)

It is not necessary to extract the zip file to use this mod.

I attached mod source codes of python script to the zip file.
If you want to read them, unzip the mod file.



Uninstallation

Delete the mod zip file from your "Mods" folder.



Compatibility with the game patches

The below table shows the compatibility between this mod and the game.
These are based on my in-game check (I confirm that my mod works by playing the game).

Patch VersionCompabilityNote
10/01/2014 (Version 1.0.732.20)Added ghosts, removed fitness gain for digging rocks and so on.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:
1. Download: Click the File tab to see the download link. Click the link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.
Read the upload description for installation instructions. If nothing else is specified, do the following:
No Extraction Required (Script Mods):
1. Cut and paste the .zip file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
Script mods need to be placed directly in \Mods or one level below that (e.g. \Mods\Scripts) – sub-folders nested any deeper won’t work.
Extraction Required (Everything Else):
1. Use WinRAR (Windows) to extract the .package file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).
2. Cut and paste the .package file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\


Need more information?
  • Anyone can use both .rar and .zip files easily! On Windows, use WinRAR.
  • If you don't have a Mods folder, just make one.
  • Mod still not working? Make sure you have script mods enabled

There is a queue of uploads, first come-first served sort of process. This one popped up first and has been approved, if yours is approved it will pop up at some point soon.
There's been quite the influx of uploads and only so many people to check/approve them.

The game will not run the mod if it's in zip format within the Mods folder. It needs to be unzipped and only the package file within can be placed in the Mods folder.

Sorry, no, I was mistaken. Their directions do say to put the actual zip in the mods folder.

Thanks


Unzip
I like having a folder in my downloads folder (not the sims files) for Sims 4 downloads and then unzipping and moving just the package file over into mods

Quick question. It unlocks the items, but are the items like the easels, computer and such useable by the sim if they haven't reached the level that would have unlocked them?

That information is in direct contrast to the install instructions.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

Forgive my ignorance, but when the files are unzipped they show up as Pyo and Py types...not Package. I'm not familiar with this type of file.

I installed all 4 files into my Mods Folder...but the Mod doesn't seem to show up in game. My Locked Objects are still Locked.

Any suggestions?

Yes, delete those and put the zip file in there. I was mistaken. Sorry. This has special install directions that I'm not used to.

So this one don't require a separate cheat window with an action typed in to work? I had the other one but I guess I will try this one and see if it opens the unlocked stuff without a cheat. Thank you for sharing.


Yeah i did. But it still didnt work. But I'll try again. *EDIT* Stupid me forgot to restart the game after activating scripts. I was just looking right after activating it and minimized the game. It works now.
