The End of modding for Twallan

Breaking News

Twallan has announced today on his State of the Mod that he will no longer be modding for Sims 3 and since he has announced a while ago that he won’t be modding for Sims 4, this means the end of mods from Twallan.

This means that there will be no more Support from Twallan directly and no more updates to his mods.

New Info

  • Seems the patch is confirmed.
  • There’s already a few people trying to figure out how the mods work to be able to give us updates. I’ll inform once the patch is actually available.

What does that mean to for the game ?

As long as EA does not decide to give us a patch, this means not much. There’s still a few problems that Twallan did not get a chance to correct but other than that, you can continue to use them. I didn’t follow the current Status to much so I can’t tell you where the problems lie

Should EA decide to give us another patch, there’s no way of telling what will run and what will not. Everyone will be doing so at their own risk cause twallan won’t be checking for us, if hey are fine. ErrorTrap will most definitely not run, since it’s a core mod and the version will need to match. So it will most probably be a choice between the patch and the mods. Turn off automatic updates right now, if you do not want to quit the mods.

Twallan did make his source code publicly available so there are chances that someone is willing to continue his work, but we have to wait and see on that.

What does this mean for my solutions that involve mods ?

Well, it means, I’ll be dreading a new patch since I will probably need to update every single post that involves a solution with his mods. There’s no way of telling if they still run and if they don’t, the solution would be fatal.

Have to wait and see on this too.

Expression of thanks

I want to express my deep gratitude towards Twallan. He has saved my games more than once I and would have stopped playing a long time ago. Exactly when my towns started dying and Indie Stone was no longer being continued.

I’ve followed Twallan from MATY to CrazyTown, from that other site I forgot the name to his own server hosted by theISZ until he finally made the Wiki. I’ve been testing his mods in the very beginning and doing translations and it was a fun time. I will miss him and his mods greatly but I do understand where he’s coming from.

I wish Twallan all the best.

I’m leaving comments open on this post in case you want to say something on the matter.

    Oh, what sad news, but I wish him all the best! I used his mods, but a while ago I had to reinstall my whole Sims 3 game, because nothing worked well. So since then my game works great without any mods. I only have used the patches on my DVDs and skiped all the others from Origin, which works great for my game.

    I’m sad Twallan retires. But still I am deeply thankful for all his work!
    He provided us with solutions for many problems with the game, so sometimes playing was only possible at all thanks to him.
    Best wishes to you, Twallan!

  • Maggie

    well, i love his mods, and he will be greatly missed! but can you imagine the pressure he must feel to mod? so many people count on him for so many different aspects and with every new update his work begins again, literately never ending! i’m happy for his choice in life and sincerely wish him the best!
    hopefully someone with the brain and time can continue to help our games and change them for the better!

    Very sad news.

    EA has today confirmed there is a new patch in the works so there’s going to be problems sooner rather than later.

  • Nina

    His mods saved my game too…
    I look forward to seeing what EA’s patches will contain. More than likely having the mods in game will out weigh having a few bug fixes.

  • Kitty

    I am ever-grateful to people like you, Crin, and Twallan.
    If it weren’t for people like you folks, I would not be able to play my game.
    Thank heavens for people like you folks! If only EA could step it up to such levels.

    Big thanks to Twallan! I would have stopped playing ages ago without Overwatch! It’s a sad day for simmers everywhere.
