My cc isn't showing up in my game, Help!

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I went on a cc spree two nights ago after I deleted all of my old custom content (starting fresh with nothing in my mods folder except for the resource file) and downloaded a whole bunch of cc. After I was done I opened sims and the mods/cc pop up didn't show up. So I opened cas and none of my cc is there. None at all. I have mods enabled in my settings, I don't have any subfolders, all of the cc is .package files, if I needed a mesh for a cc I downloaded it, and I've even taken out the mods folder and put it back in. I've repaired my game through origin, also uninstalled and reinstalled the game. For the past two days I've been searching for whats wrong but I can't find anything. Someone please help! I need my custom content!

Could be.

 

Put your mods/cc in that folder and see if they show up.

Does the game start and play? Do you have scripting mods enabled? Is the resource file ok? Is your computer a pc or Mac?

Yes for your first two questions. This is what my resource file has inside, I don't know what to look for in qualifications if its ok or not. And I have a pc (windows 10).

The only thing that comes to mind is to reset the game - reset game and then try one mod you know will work. If that works then you need to check all mods to see if they are up to date. The 3/26 patch broke some mods.

I made the backup file, then deleted the original as said. But when I opened the game everything was the same? My saved games are still there and the game didn't reset.. It also didn't create a new file. Wondering

Sounds like your user folder might be in a different place.

 

Are you using onedrive ? If so, can you check there ?

Yes I do have onedrive. There is an EA folder in there, does that mean the game is working with the file in onedrive instead of the one in my regular documents?

You might wanna make sure, that the game is not using the one on the onedrive by redirecting your user folder to your hard drive.
