Custom Content Not Showing in Sims 4

★★ Novice

I recently downloaded a single item of custom content, and have repeatedly opened and closed the game, but it never appears. After I put the custom content in my mods folder, the game restarted, deleting all of my sims, households, custom content and progress, yet the hours I have played the game still remain. I have restarted my computer (A MacBook Air), made sure that my game allowed mods, checked for extra subfolders, and done just about everything that the internet recommends. Custom content has worked for me before, so I have no idea what's going on. Some insight into this issue would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Could you post pictures of your game options and your mods folder content

My insert image option is not applicable to screenshots, but if it would be helpful I could describe them to you.

Does it not list them when you first start the game up?

Did you do a gif ? Try jpg or png.

I'd really rather have a screenshot cause it's easier to spot things that are off.

 

You could also upload to some picture sharing site and just link.

Gyazo is pretty good for screenshots.

It doesn't list them when I start the game, but after I reach the opening screen I can select 'game options'.

Oh, I think I know what your problem is then. You're most likely got a Mods folder open somewhere on your Desktop. Instead of using that, search up "Electronic Arts" on your computer, and go to the Mods section in "The Sims 4". Most likely, none of the mods you downloaded will be there. Just grab the Mods you wanted and place them in there, and delete the "Resource.cfg" if you want to. I'm not sure what that does exactly, something about reloading mods.

But I hope this helped!
