This mod is intended to be run on Patch 1.33, see Patch Level Compatibility.


This mod disables the censor grid (aka the mosaic).

The effect is not immediate, but is delayed by 250 real-time milliseconds.
  • I can see no way of short circuiting the censor grid via scripting, so I simply turn it off after it has been activated.

This approach to anti-censorship will not impact any other visual effect system in the game.

As of Phase Six, the mod is now able to remove the censor if your sims are on the world lot (the lot between the playable lots).
  • However, this task is slower than the normal 250 millisecond one, so be aware the censor may take a noticeable while to vanish.

This mod is compatible with all known mods. However it is not necessary if you are using Awesome, as that mod contains its own anti-censor measures.

Note that changing the in-game options will not immediately re-enable the censor. The censor will appear the next time the Core game requires it.


As always, ensure that you backup your save files prior to installation of this mod. As Murphy said: If anything can go wrong, it will go wrong.
