Simply out of curiosity, I would love to know something. I'm new to this community and I work with the latest blender for some projects of mine. But why in the world is S4S not supporting the latest Blender Version 2.82a? Since 2.70 or 2.76 it had so much improvement.
I mean obviously the newest blender contains:
over thousand fixes and many important updates since the last version only, not to mention since 2.70
New sculpting tools since 2.81 which could be very useful for the meshes/meshing/rendering and poses
The popular tiled-based UV mapping system is now fully integrated in Blender
Transparent materials now blend properly with volumetrics.
Polyline Tool:Draw polygon shapes with this new tool.
userface is improved (better)
and so much more...
Does the S4S Team plan to update it at some point? I can't use the older versions, to be quite honest because I need the newest for my projects with the tools which previous versions don't provide. I guess once it's updated if ever I would love to join and create CC for the community, but well if it never gets updated, welp that's life.
Why is S4S Studio not supporting the latest Blender version, or at least update it to a newer version? Can anyone or someone from the team, tell me the big secret? LOL

I have 3 versions of Blender at my pc. 2.70, 2.76 and 2.82. You can import your mesh as an object file to the newest Blender and make there the edits, then export it as object file again and import it in an older blender. That's laborious yes but it works.
Maybe works the methode with copy and past for you:

I switched to Blender 2.78c a long time ago and it works well. If that is any help to you. I think it takes a lot to match Blenders new features to S4S, and thats why its not updated along with Blenders changes. It also has to keep up with game changes and it's all time and hard work for the creators of this brilliant program. But there are as MahoCreations has said, other updated versions that work well with S4S.
fleurlibelle Blender 2.76 is the bridge for Studio. You are not obligated to work in it and you can have as many versions of Blender as you wish. 1. Sims 4 Studio team of developers consists of 2 people who work on the program in spare time from work and real life, and wanted to rather focus their attention on program functionality than on just simply adapting it to all possible versions of Blender when in reality Blender is needed only as a bridge. 2. Newer versions of Blender don't work on older versions of Windows. The game still supports Windows XP, and many people still use XP, Vista and so on. Developing the program to be able to work with newer versions of blender will cut people who use older systems out. Developing the program to be able to work with all possible versions of Blender on all possible versions of Windows will take tons of time. 3. Newer versions of Blender didn't add anything new useful for Studio. You can use them separately and it is easier to append the mesh made in 2.81 in 2.76 version than to code Studio for this due to the reasons mentioned above.
As far as I spoke with one of the developers couple weeks ago there were no plans in fiddling with Studio just to update it for newer versions of Blender since there is no major necessity in this.
Please don't DM me here or elsewhere asking for assistance with Ninjaripper or CC. I don't work in Ninjaripper anymore. Please post your questions in Creator Help thread so everyone can chime in and help solving the problem
