Always Start Lots Paused

This modifies The Sims 4 lot loading routines to automatically pause the game whenever a lot is loaded. This includes when changing lots in manage world, traveling to another lot, returning from the CAS to change outfits, etc. After the plumbob "loading" animation completes, the game will always enter the lot paused.

Installation and Compatibility

Simply copy, do not unzip, the zip file into your game Mods folder. This is a script mod, so scripting must be enabled in your game options.

This mod should be compatible with any Windows version of the game since 1.0.732.20 (October 1, 2014).

This mod will likely not work on the Mac unless it is updated to version 1.4.103.1210 (February 20, 2015). This update is critical for Mac users anyway, see Issues with Mods and CC in The Sims 4 on Mac for more info on this patch.

The script source is included in the zip file.

Additional Credits:
All of the brilliant people who have worked on getting the game's base scripts decompiled.

Thanks to Fetusdip for his reload script to make testing a whole lot easier, and Scripthoge for the Python script injection routines required to make this mod possible.

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

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
