CC not showing up in game.

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I have been using custom content in sims for one maybe 2 years. Recently, I changed from a PC to a Mac and everything seemed fine at first. However, after I started downloading CC, some of it wasn't showing up. I've tried re-downloading it, unzipping it, removing it, etc. It's becoming frustrating that more than half of the objects I spent hours downloading aren't showing up. I'd appreciate it if someone could help me out.

Great, so the location is correct. Yes, all CC needs to be unzipped. You can download apps to unzip Rar and 7z if the built in utility won't. My personal favourite is The Unarchiver.



Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.

Please click on one of the CC items to highlight it then hold down CMD and press i to bring up the info window. Please can you copy and paste the file path to the item here? It can be found under the General section > Where. You don't have to give your user account name, just put something random there Standard smile

 

Are you totally sure the CC you are using is fully compatible with the current patch level of the game? And that the CC files end in .package?

The path is /Users/myname/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods
Yes, i'm sure the CC is compatible with the current patch. The ones I don't think are in the game are .rar or .7z - haven't realized that until now.
