Last updated: Jan/03/2018
**EA does not support Mods and Custom Contents. Please use it at your own risk

Decompress the file you downloaded.
(If you download compressed file,please make sure you uncompress the file.
You should be always looking at a .package file.)

Windows TO : Use archiver something like 7zip (, WinRAR (
Mac OS : Double click the file. Zip file will uncompress automatically.
Place .package files into
Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods
(folder path)C:Users\[Your User Folder]\Documents\Electronic Arts\TheSims 4\Mods
Mostly,there’s a main file required for CC working.
Don’t forget to put a main file.
Please read a ‘Read Me’ file in a file you downloaded to get files info.

If you open the game,you need close it,and reopen it for changes to take effect.

Also,please make sure to update your game to the latest version.
If your game is older version,CC may not show up in your game.

Custom Content Doesn’t Show Up?

If your game version is older than the game version of CC created,that CC may not show up in your game.
Please check your game version.
Checking version of my CC working is currently  PC / Mac

Did you put them in subfolders?
The default Resource.cfg does not support nested subfolders.
If you want to sort your Mods,you need to edit the Resource.cfg.
Now the Sims 4 makes the Resource.cfg that allows nested subfolders automatically.
Make sure the Resource.cfg is like this :

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

Editing like this,you can put them in 5 nested subfolders.
Please be careful not changing filename extension.

.zip,.rar or .7z files are needed to be unpacked.
Please check whether the file is unpacked correctly

Has the “Enable Custom Content and Mods” turned on?
Select the Game Options,and please check it.
(After a patch,you need to turn this back on.)

      Thank you for your comment.

      May I ask you something about your problem?
      Which hairstyle do you use?
      What is the version of your game?
      Which one are you using Windows version or Mac version?

      • Maha says:

        i am using Windows version
        my game version is 1.0.732.20
        the hairstyles are: Short hair with heavy bangs for male
        night fog TS4 edition for male
        and the 3D eyelashes.

          Is it possible to update your game to the latest version?
          I think the old version can’t use custom contents made from newer version.
          That hair and lashes are needed version or later.

        • Maha says:

          Thank you!!! it worked!!! yaaay!!!! thanks for your help!
          now i can enjoy all of your custom content!
          i apologize for disturbing you
