Default Script Modding: How to Access The Sims 4 Python Files
1. Download Python 3.3.5 from here: https://www.python.org/download/releases/3.3.5

2. Install Python, and be sure to check “Add python.exe to path” when asked what specific features you want to install.

3. Download TheHologramMan’s edited version of unpyc3 from here: http://modthesims.info/showthread.p...727#post4503727 you must download the modified version, not the original, otherwise you’ll just get a bunch of errors!

4. Place unpyc3.exe in the same install directory as Python.

5. Download darkkitten30’s Python decompiler batch file. Follow the instructions on the page on how to set it up. http://modthesims.info/t/532644

6. Ensure you have the directories in the decompiler batch file set correctly, then run the program. You may get errors with some files, but if you followed the above steps properly, the majority of the files should decompile successfully. The files that don’t decompile cannot be modded, but as far as I know there’s nothing particularly interesting in them.

7. Uncompress the resulting zip files, and you’re ready to enter the world of script modding.

There are many links to unpyc3 in that thread - which one is the modified version? Also, in what format do I place it in the python directory? The links lead to a webpage with text on it.

This one: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/f...aster/unpyc3.py

Just place the raw .py file in the directory you install Python.

I followed the instructions above, and the three zip files appeared in C:\temp, but when these files are extracted, none of them can be read. I've tried editing them in IDLE, and I just get a blank space.

All these steps are already detailed in other threads, such as the one I made on the tutorials forum, which is where stuff like this belongs in the first place.

I now realize that the decompiled files are available on another thread, anyway.

"""

Guys, if you see that it means your browser is opening the file and displaying the text (like it does with HTML or text files). What you'll want to do is right-click the link to the file and select "Save as..." or "Save target as..." depending on your browser.

Have you tried reading the post directly above yours?

(Also, no offense, but if downloading a text file is already a challenge for you, I imagine you will find script modding a little .. unrewarding. Maybe try something more approachable first.)

Just in case anyone wanted to do this for the Mac version of the game, EA used Python 2.7.9. At least that's the only version I could open without any error messages.

I'd love to delve into the Mac files but I just don't understand enough about Python to even attempt it.

I'm experiencing this error: AttributeError: 'SuiteDecompiler' object has no attribute '<69>'
My resulted .py files all only have a single line " *** Warning: file has wrong magic number *** "

What am I doing wrong? I am using TheHologramMan’s edited version of unpyc3...

Edit: OK, it turns out to be a Python version problem... I installed the newest 3.4, which seemed not to work. Now I'm mortified; I wasted a whole morning trying to figure this out...

A good note to be made here is that you need to run the batch file as an administrator...

I'm currently taking on online course to teach myself Python, but the Python version I have installed is 2.7. What would be the best way for me to go about this?

I think Python 3.3 is the version being currently used for sims 4 modding (if thats what you are interested in! ). Python 2.x is legacy but 3.x is the current one in development.
