Re: Custom Content not showing up in The Sims 4

I'm having the same problem. I have downloaded cas items and build mode items but nothing shows up. When I look at where it should list my cc it doesn't say anything. I've never used cc before but was getting bored of base game items so decided to try it. I dowloaded it all from The Sims Resource. It's all for Sims 4 and I have mods and cc enabled in my game. I deleted my resource.cfg file in my mods folder and I'm not sure how to get it back but cc didn't work before I deleted it. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the fact my game and everything is saved on a portable drive that I plug into my laptop when I play. Also when I first downloaded my cc I didn't have a mods folder so I just made one. People are saying about subfolders, I have my cc in a custom content folder in my mods folder. Could someone please help?

Re: Custom Content not showing up in The Sims 4

The game should create the mods folder by itself, when you start it once, so make sure you don't have two. 

Could you try taking all but one file out and test the game with only one piece?

I'm getting really mad at myself and game because i have spent hours on hour and for about two weeks now i have been trying to get cc. I download the cc off  and it worked about a month ago i get back from a trip then delete my cc that i have because i don't want it. I then tried to download more cc to be specific hair and clothes. I open my game it doesn't work, you don't know how many hours i wasted watching/reading videos and article and it was just a waste of my time nothing is working. I have no subfolders either please help i'm getting very frustrated.

I do have CC on and I think I have OneDrive but when I click on the show CC button none of my CC shows up.

Did you add the mods to your onedrive or local folder ?

Hi, Evans_Lilly515, I've had this problem before and I know it's annoying. Have you checked that the file is a .package file? If it's a .zip or anything like it, you'll need to unzip the file before putting it in your Mods folder. If this doesn't work, make sure the content was directed towards Sims 4 as opposed to Sims 3. Hope this helps!

OMG, I've been having the same problem .I just recently deleted all of my cc ,and before I didn't  have this problem. Right now I am Taking out all my new cc and completely deleting it, then going back to the sites I found it from and re installing it. That's what worked for me before. If not it might be the cc itself.

UPDATE 2: I fixed it! It was either Sentate-PamDress.package, revolution-sims_fancy_gown.package, or Thorsuit.package. I deleted them all.


UPDATE: It only launches when I delete literally all my mods.


So I can't even get my game to LAUNCH now after following these instructions.


The path to my mod file is icloud drive->documents->electronic arts->the sims 4->mods


Here are my mods
