How to Get CC (Custom Content) in The Sims 4
The Sims 4 is made a whole lot better thanks to all of the mods and Custom Content (CC) that its fans have created and shared with the community. This isn’t something you can just download from inside the game, though. Instead, you’ll need to find the content you want and load it into the correct file before you can play with them.
First thing’s first, you’ll need to make sure that the “Mods” folder is already set up. It should be, but you can check this by heading to the following file path:
Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods
If you see this folder, click into it and make sure that the “Resource.cfg” folder is in there, too.
Now that you know everything is in place, it’s time to go and look for the CC that you want to use in The Sims 4. TheSimsResource has a ton of CC available for players to download and use in their games, including some of the most popular CC to have been created. If you still can’t find the CC you’re looking for, try checking out ModTheSims or heading to the likes of Tumblr and searching “Sims 4 CC.”
When you’ve found the Custom Content that you want, you’ll now need to download the file and make sure that the mesh also comes with it. This should be noted in the CC’s description, so make sure you’re always downloading Custom Content with this noted in the description, otherwise it may not work.
With these files downloaded, head to the location it was saved and cut the file with CTRL + X. Now you want to make your way back to the “Mods” folder at the file path we noted above. Drop the file into the Mods folder and make sure that the file ends in “.package.” If it doesn’t, you may need to extract it from a .zip or .rar folder.
Now all you need to do is boot up The Sims 4 on your PC or Mac. As long as you’ve got the correct files in the right folder, you should see a window titled “Mods” appear. This is basically confirming that your CC will work in the game, but now you’ll need to go ahead and enable it in the game’s settings.
In the top-right corner of the screen, you’ll see three dots. Click on these, selecting the “Game Options” mode and then “Other.” Now all you need to do is make sure that both “Enable Custom Content and Mods” and “Script Mods Allowed” are both ticked.
And that’s all there is to getting CC in The Sims 4. For more on the game and its many expansions, be sure to search for Twinfinite.
