Can't Find the Sims 4 Folder In Documents..

Post by MissVxntage on Sun 15 Jan 2017, 19:37

Hi, I recently downloaded city living, and everything is going great. But I wanted to install some mods. So I waited a while for my documents folder to appear.. But I can't find the Sims 4 folder. Yes, I did play for a while. But it wont appear for some reason.

If you know a possible fix for this, please let me know!  Wink

Hi there!


I admit i have to searched online for this problem BUT i saw one posts that solved the problem. Though I'm unsure if you already did this. So...


Run the game, enable the script mods in your game and exit. Check your documents folder again if it's there. (I'm sorry if this sounds too basic to be a solution honestly)


Alternatively, try checking to see if your hidden files are shown. Go to the 'View' tab in file explorer and check the hidden items.

If you can't find the Sims 4 folder in Documents.
Do a search in Windows for GameVersion. (Magnifying glass, on your taskbar).When found right-click on it and click on Open location.

It's possible your The Sims 4 folder went to onedrive in stead of your Documents folder. 
I notice you're running Windows 10, I had the same thing with TS3.

Hello again,

The possible fix is here:




The folder location where you need to look for your Mods-folder. By default that should be under C:\Users\(your username)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods.

Using the search function initially can help, as well as checking whether this "OneDrive" messed up your folder. But in my epxerience, in 9 out of 10 cases the problem is because users simply are unaware of the difference between the "Documents" and the "Program files"-folders.
