Mods not appearing in the game

Post by Liv_88 on Wed 01 Mar 2017, 15:06

Hi, I've downloaded the latest version of Sims 4. At the beginning of the game, it does pop out that the mod I added is available. But when I started to build or create a new sim, the clothing or object I just added by mod does not appear. Hope that I explained well, thank you.

Hello there,maybe the mod is newer or older than your game version so even if its there the game cant recognize it and you cant use it

You got only the base game or you got also the other packs till the City living?We are talking about the pirated game or the original?

Lets check some things,go to Game options,Other,Enable custom content and Mods (this must be green).
Check if your mods are on (my) Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods.You also need to check if there is a file named Recource.cfg inside the Mods folder.If you open this file you must see inside this

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


Now if everything is ok,and you have the latest version of the pirated game (City Living) your mods must be there.The only reason to not be there is the date of the mods.Try mods created on 2016,till the January 2017.
If you have only the base game you need much older mods to make them work cus the pirated base game have not got the latest updates.

I've checked my Resource.cfg file, I just have
Priority 500
PackedFile *.package
PackedFile *\*.package
I think this is because I just have the base game and not the City Living. So, I should download older mods. Thank you for your help.

Yeah,you need older mods, Tea 5 you can edit the Resource.cfg if you want.Those */*/* are the subfolders inside the mods folder.

Editing the resource.cfg as the previpus poster mentioned is only necessary if you have a super-fancy way of organizing your Mods-folder, so a folder layout like...

Mods
-
Old Mods --- New Mods
              -
              -
                                                                                          Clothing-------Script Mods
                                                                                              -             -
                                                                                              -             -
                                                                   Male------------Female         (etc.)






You get the idea. For mods, you mostly have to check for comaptibility with the latest game version. Which for the cracked games is 1.25.136.1020. If you just download things like clothing, hairstyles, makeup, etc., the version compatibility may be less important, but still. You may need to get in touch with the creator of your mods for that information. Extra tip: if you have to do that, don't mention your game is cracked, even when asked about it. If you say the game is cracked, they (the mod creators) may not take kindly to this.

Hmm... I think I need to spend more time to find the mods that suitable. Thanks for helping.
