XML Tuning files for ErrorTrap


Installation of tuning packages are performed in the same manner as the associated base-mod : See How To Install

Note that these packages do absolutely nothing if you do not have the base-mod installed on your setup.

  • This file provides the ability to silence recurring errors that are a minor nuisance, and for which I have yet to find an appropriate correction.

  • NOTE: Do not use this approach as an excuse to stop reporting errors to me. Silencing the error does not mean the error is gone, it is merely going unreported.

  • The XML is formatted as a Table.

  • To customize, open in your favorite package editor, and add new sets to the end of the table.

  • For example, add this to the table, and it will silence bluegenjutsu's "ScoreInteractions" script error.

  •   <IgnoreList>
        <ExceptionType>System.InvalidOperationException</ExceptionType>
        <ExceptionStack>Sims3.Gameplay.Autonomy.Sims3.Gameplay.Autonomy.Autonomy:ScoreInteractions (Sims3.Gameplay.Autonomy.CommodityInteractionMap)</ExceptionStack>
      </IgnoreList>





  • With the introduction of the dereferencing system in ErrorTrap a number of users have found that loading their extremely large towns has become intolerably slow.

  • As a solution, I provide the "DisableDereferencing" tuning file, which disables that particular system in the mod. Only use this tuning file if you are encountering an unacceptable slowdown during load-up.





  • This is the general tuning package for all mod's in this suite
  • The tuning enables the "Show Debugging" by default

  • Those mods which have in-game debugging options will ignore this tuning if you have already saved the game with the option disabled





  • While debugging is enabled in ErrorTrap, the mod automatically dumps a sorted list of all references found during loadup
  • This process can be extremely lengthy, and stalls the load-up process while running.

  • Installing this tuning package disables that process, and allows you to use the Common_DebugTuning.package without the delay.



anchor [[ErrorTrap Tuning#MenuOnTesting]]



  • This is the general tuning package for all mod's in this suite
  • The tuning hides all the mod menus while the "testingcheatsenabled" is turned off

  • Only applicable for mods updated after July 22, 2012





  • When installed, this file forces ErrorTrap to ignore saved task state information, effectively resetting all persisted tasks
  • To be used only to correct issues where the save-file crashes on load-up after switching out Core-Mods
    • Once the save-file loads, use the "Save As", and then uninstall the tuning
  • For use with Version 95 or greater.





  • This tuning enables exception reporting for OnProcessEventCallback.
  • These fire whenever a UI event occurs (such as clicking on something). This covers the entire UI and can be helpful when tracking down why interactions aren't appearing in the menu or clicking something doesn't respond as expected.
  • For use with Version 98 or greater (earlier versions have it enabled by default).
