You are not alone if you run into problems with a Sims 4 Script Call Failed error. The Script Call Failed error is typical among users who mod their games or have other issues, such as missing specific game files. That said, you can fix the Script Call Failed error by running a series of troubleshooting steps. Here's what we recommend trying first to fix the Sims 4 Script Call Failed error.

Solutions to fix the Sims 4 Script Call Failed Error

To fix the Sims Script Call Failed Error, you must try the following troubleshooting fixes:

  • Remove and Update Mods
  • Repair Game Files

If you want to fix Sims 4 and get rid of the Script Call Failed error, we recommend removing any mods you have. In short, mods can often cause errors in various games, and the Sims 4 is no exception. Before removing your mods, we recommend moving them to a backup folder in case your mods are not the issue. After moving your mods to a safe location, try relaunching the game. 

When relaunching, you'll know that mods are probably the issue if the game loads without problems. At this point, we recommend adding your mods back one by one until you locate the mod that's causing the error. If you find the problem mod, check to see if there is an update for the mod or remove it until the mod author updates it. However, if your game is still crashing with or without mods, try repairing the game files
