how to delete sims mod file

★★★★ Novice

Help! I deleted my Sims mod file long ago and it never reappeared. I never saw any Sim with those hairstyle or clothes. Everything was great.

 

Suddenly it reappeared! I got the warning blurb when I logged into Sims 4.

 

I don't need or want those mods or any mods. How do I delete it? I've looked everywhere. I can't find it.

 

Now my Sims game just flashes and flashes. Not lightning flashes. Error flashes. I cannot play it as the screen keeps jerking with these flashes. Please help me find and delete this file.

@littlemissgamer2 You may have better luck posting this question on The Sims 4 board over here - https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/ct-p/the-sims-4-en

@littlemissgamer2 You can delete the mods fully by opening your Sims 4 folder in My Documents and in the mod folder delete all mods, in your case you can just delete the entire folder. 

 

You will then need to clear the Sims 4 cache which you can do by deleting the file localthumbscache.package which is the folder in which your Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/ cache can be found.

 

You also need to delete all files that end in .cache but leave the actual directory. 

 

Now go ahead and go back  to the cachestr folder. Delete all of the files but once again do not delete the actual directory.

 

If you see a folder called onlinethumbnailcache then you can go ahead and trash it too.
