Some CC not showing up in game - Sims 4

Post by cat.atsoc on Fri 01 Sep 2017, 01:29

Hello, fellow Simmers, after reading tons of forum postings and threads, I still haven't been able to figure out what's wrong. I have recently installed Sims 4 and a patch, and I downloaded a crop ton of CC from TSR. After looking online I figured out where I had to put the CC, which would be under C:\Users\----\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods. I put it all there, no folders so I know my problem isn't the resource.cfg file. Also, I didn't install any "remeshed CC" so it's not that either.. I found 2 hairstyles and 1 pair of shoes showing up but thats about it. I downloaded almost 200 files and they're a lil bit of everything, walls, floors, clothing, shoes, hair etc and most of it isn't showing up. Help

Hi there,

You state that you have been installing Sims 4 and a patch. Well, cc is often linked to certain DLC's and if you do not have them in your game, they will not show up. many cc items are re-colors of existing ea-pack items and if you do not have them in game, they wont show.
So you need to know exactly which patch you have to download items for that specific patch. That is one of the reasons why most of us have all the expansion and stuff packs installed.
Hope this explains it a bit.

Hi,


Also adding to the above, some CCs are might not be updated, and thus, will only 'break' your game in future. If say you went to TSR and go to the last page of the download, chances are your CCs will cause problems later on. Missing stuffs, missing interactions, you get the idea. Also, furniture CCs have been causing problems to a couple of simmers so if you have any, test them first. 

recently installed Sims 4 and a patch
If I'm assuming right and you only installed the base game with the update only fix, then as loonieloose mentioned, CCs which are tied together with DLCs/packs will not show up in your game. Do update your game to the latest version (1.33), which is Toddler's Stuff and check again if your CCs are there.

Do keep us updated here. Very Happy

Hello! 
 I agree with Ageha and Loonieloose. 
I've also downloaded Sims 4 five days ago. You need to download lots of updates (In other words, packs)... You need to get to the "Vampires" update, at least. After that, all of my installed CC showed up. 

Here are all the reasons I've read about this situation: 
-Your game needs to be updated. 

-The CC could be just retextures or recolors. 
-You haven't enabled the mods option in your game options. 
-Your update is good enough, but the CC requires further updates (or like what the replies above me said)


You can fine those updates in G4TW's downloads site.
I can also recommend a channel on Youtube, if you want. 
You can always message me if you have any further questions! I've experienced the same problems too and not so long ago either. 

Note: Some people will tell you that you 'should' put CC in classifying folders, like: Clothing, hairstyles, interactions, etc... But it's not really a requirement or something that you MUST do. It's only to make it easier to search for your mods and stuff, but it's okay if you don't wanna do that. 

Happy simming! Tell us what happens! Very Happy

Hello,

Not sure if you still need support, but out of curiosity, may I ask what "patch(es)" exactly you installed? Smile
