Deleted sims 4 file trying to fix mod folder! Help!

★★★★ Novice

So I'm running on a MacBook Pro and have the Sims 4 on origin still and can play it just fine, but my mod folder was getting cluttered and I had quite a few broken ones. So I tried deleting the folder and wanted to start over but I accidentally deleted the whole sims file i tried uninstalling the sims 4 and reinstalling it but it didnt regenerate. My original CC is still in my game though. I'm guessing because the game is not actually installed on my computer the files are not coming back. And they are not in my trash folder. Any advice on how to get the stock files back and mods folder?

When you deleted the whole Sims file, what exactly are you referring to? The Sims game in your Applications folder, the Sims 4 folder in Documents > Electronic Arts, or something different?

Which files? In your Documents folder or your Applications folder? They are two separate locations on your Mac.
