Hello, I have the Sims 4 downloaded into my 32g USB as well as the EA folders I downloaded some cc and its placed in my mods folder, however, it's not showing up at all. What can I do to fix this problem?

Your user data folder is where your saves, CC, screenshots etc, are. This folder should be in Documents > Electronic Arts, not on your external USB. The full file path is Macintosh HD > Users > your user account > Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4


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

Your user data folder needs to be on your Macs internal storage, in your Documents folder. Do you have it on the external? If so move it all to Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 and you'll be good to go.

What exactly is the user data folder? I downloaded the game from Origin into the USB as well as Origin itself is on the USB. Sorry, I'm not good with computers :/
