Ive had similar problems. I have alot of cc that im needing for my game and for some reason only some of my cc is loaded in the game and everytime i add something new, it never shows up all it shows is the same cc thats already there. Its so agrivating to find the perfect cc and it to not load up!

If it's only some it's really hard to help you.

 

Best is to talk of the creator of the cc.

 

Also make sure you have the mesh if it's a recolor.

Which CC are you using? 

 

My CC is all working fine now, but when I first started using CC it took me some getting used to (as far as set up goes) and now it's all fine. These may be obvious but here's some things I had to fix that might help:

 

-Like previously said, make sure no sub-folders. If you delete your resource.cfg file then start up the game it will auto-generate a new one. The new one will allow subfolders but the old one does not, so either create a new one or don't use the folders. 

 

-Make sure both mod/cc options are enabled in options. There is both a 'script mods' and a 'cc mods', which cc is new. These turn off every update and need to be re-enabled.

 

-Double check you have the correct mesh. If you don't have a mesh it either 1) won't show up or 2) will show up but when you click on it nothing will show.

 

-If it's clothing related check the tags. I know it sounds stupid, but many of the outfits or accessories are set to certain categories, like a beanie might not show up under formal unless you uncheck the 'formal' filter at the top that trims down what shows.

 

-Also check to make sure the CC is up to date/compatible with what you are using

 

Honestly I think pretty much every CC I couldn't get to show was due to a mesh related or folder issue. I hope this helps! 

 

If you can provide a little more information on what CC you are trying to get to show up I would be happy to see if it will work in my game/troubleshoot what it takes to make it show up or if there's an issue with the file itself.

Are you sure those are not just recolors ? Maybe Sims 2 or Sims 3 files ?

 

It's really hard to tell. The best is to talk to the creators of those things that don't show up and see what others report.
