XML Injector is a script mod that you can install for Sims 4. This is needed at times when you use multiple mods on your game. There is a chance that at times some mods may conflict with each other. And that is where this script mod comes in. It provides a mod library, that lets mods use a custom snippet instead of having to make scripts separately for making changes.

This ability to not have to script themselves and let the XML Injector handle it, helps modders make more or better mods instead of spending time writing scripts. And they don’t even have to worry about the game or mod breaking when a player tries to use it with some conflicting mod.

Don’t worry you can still mod the game without using this script mod. But if a mod requires you to have it installed, then it is for the best that you install it to not break anything.
