Deleted Electronic Arts & Sims 4 folders - Mac

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Okay, so just want to preface this by saying that I deleted everything (accidentally of course ) the sims 4 folder, Electronic arts from documents and also iCloud archive.

I have also tried a plethora of things; uninstalling origin and the sims 4, repairing sims 4 etc and nothing has worked. Every time I've re-downloaded the sims I get the sims 4 icon (when clicked it just launches the game) and I'm pretty sure the game is working just fine.

@xlunasimmer Go to Finder (your Desktop, where all the icons are). Pull down the "Go" menu and select "Go to folder..." (OR just hit Command + Shift + G). In the dialog box that opens enter:

/Users/Myname/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4

Except change "Myname" to whatever your actual user name is. Does that open a folder window with a bunch of files in it (including a folder called "Saves")?

I don't understand what the problem is? You can launch the game but you accidentally managed to delete all your games? What do you need help with?

So you can launch the game ok? Can you save the game? Is there a Sims 4 folder in Documents > Electronic Arts?

If you can launch it ok, play for a bit then save and close. Open it up again and click on Load Game under the Play button. Hover your cursor over the available games to load and the file path should show you where the game is saved to, that's where your Sims 4 folder is.

You don't need to search. By hovering your cursor over the saved game it shows you the file path:
