Sims 4 content moved, Origin isn't recognizing it? MacOS

★★★★ Newbie

My Sims 4 content folder moved (to Applications from Desktop) but now Origin isn't acknowledging all of the stuff in it. When I launch Sims 4 it is like I've never played before. How do I get it to locate the folder and content in the folder? (I'm using MacOS High Sierra)

The game should be in your Applications folder. Your Sims 4 folder with your saves etc. should be in Documents > Electronic Arts.



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