Custom Content not showing up in The Sims 4

★★★★ Novice

I've downloaded the clothes, put them into the Mods folder, resource.cfg file is there, but the custom content  isn't showing up in game, which is weird. Any help?

Did you put it in subfolders ? Do you have now package files in your mods folder ?

Yes they are in subfolders - I've only downloaded two custom content, which are both dresses. In my mods folder, I have only subfolders - Tops, dresses, bottoms, accessories, make up and hair. Only resource file is out of subfolders.

The default resource.cfg does not support subfolders.

 

Either not put them in subfolders or edit your resource.cfg that it does support them

Hi, I have been trying for about two hours. I've went to several forums and I have tried everything. The CC is not downloading into the game.

All I did was go to the sims4.com official website and went to their gallery and started to select items to download. IT said it would appear in "my downloads".
It shows up in my library, but when you hover the "download" button, it is grey and it says it cannot download to game.

 

Any help?>>

Are you talking about Sims and Households ? Those need to be downloaded through the ingame gallery. You can't download them through the website.

Hi

 

its the same for me..ive been trying ever since i bought the game. No CC shows up unless its from the sims community.

i have tried everything.

i am a seasoned Sims player - since 1999 always used cc.

 

Its spoiling the game for me.

 

Did you managed to get cc into your game???

 

thanks

Check under Options --> Game Options if they are enabled.
