CC/Mods not showing in game FIX

Post by coolcandy3001 on Thu 20 Aug - 2:26

If you are like me, you have A LOT of CC... (4k and counting Embarassed )
 If you try and put order your CC into sub folders in the My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods - It will only show 1 sub folders - the one in which the file "resource.cfg" is in.
   Basically, the coding in resource.cfg doesn't allow subfolders, you have to keep it all in Mods, so resource.cfg and count all the .package files within the Mods folder.



 If you really can't live without ordering your mods folder, this allows you to subfolder your mods by 5 folders "deep" (example: Mods/Folder 1/Folder1.1/Folder/1.2/folder1.3/folder1.4)
1. Save a copy of recource.cfg and open it into a text editor


2. Edit it to say:

Priority 500
PackedFile *.package
PackedFile */*.package
PackedFile */*/*.package
PackedFile */*/*/*.package
PackedFile */*/*/*/*.package
PackedFile */*/*/*/*/*.package

THE * SIGN IS WHERE YOU ADD YOUR FOLDER NAME, FOR EXAMPLE: "PackedFile Hair/Female/Long/Blonde/Nya/Mew.package" IF YOU DO NOT ADD YOUR FILE NAME INTO THE RESOURCE.CFG, THIS WILL BREAK YOUR GAME.



3. Save it.

Works most recent patch (1.10)

Mod edit: moved to the right section, stickied and download link for the modified Resource.cfg added. Smile

Nice! So you can't use the wildcard "*" but mention file by file manually? Right? Or can you use the "*" symbol as you did to mean that everything in any sub-folders would be found by the game?

Thanks for the info! I am sure lots of people will use it!
