That is my problem too, none of my cc show in game at all. There was also no mods folder or tray folder. I created these folders but still nothing works.

Hello,


Make sure your mods are actually in Documents\EA\The Sims 4 and not Program Files(x86). Some people had thought that the mods was supposed to go there, or instead misplaced their files there.


@lgrajeda : When you save your game, where was it saved to if not the documents? Also, you can actually back up your saves and CCs without losing any progress should you decided to re-use the family later on. Your saves should still be there, unless it got deleted somehow. 

@BklynLadyy1 : Have you checked whether the CC option (enabled mods) was checked in the Options menu in-game?

its like the game is not reading documents/ea/the sims 4 as none of the files in there is showing up in the game and it makes me wonder where it is saving the new game file

So I just saw your reply before mine was posted. Does this mean you're playing two different version? Like the Origin and G4TW version together? Without creating separate folders for them in the Documents?

I see. This is odd. Are you able to load anything? Like newer saves? If yes, click on load -> option will appear and hover the folder icon. Like so:

Was your previous saves perhaps overwritten? And for the mods, do you have a Resource.cfg inside the folder? 

EDIT:
Also, this page might be helpful since the problem is similar to yours. I think I did suggest this to one simmer though I forgot if it solves te problem or not. You can read it here.

Okay. Try checking the above link I posted under 'edit'. Do you happen to have the Slot_00000005.save somewhere in your pc? If yes, I'll see if my side can detect your save as well. The SerialGUID is safe to delete by the way.

But which folder did the Sims 4 detected? Always back up your saves first before hand. If it detects from the picture above, then move your saves to there. It seems to have a Documents\EA folder as well? I think that's windows 10 right? Win10 layout can be abit weird compared to 8.

do you happen to have onedrive in your pc? if yes, the game might target that instead of the documents folder. Also, did you remove the Sims 4 folder from the Documents\EA\The Sims 4 before running the game? To see if it appears again.

I think the folder you need to use is the one in that was created after you started the game. For instance if the normal Documents\EA\The Sims 4 does not make a new folder when you play, then it means the game will detect your other one -> C:\Users\User\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 - something like that but you get my point. 

Another way is you can change your game language to french, and a new folder 'Les Sims 4' will be created. If you saw that in wherever the folder was put into, it means that is where the game will be saved to.
