After I installed the sims 3 all in one from this website but I cannot find the path to place mods in. So could you tell me where the mods should be?

Hello and welcome to the Forum,

@oat78784 wrote:(...) but I cannot find the path to place mods in.

Unlike The Sims 4, you have to create these folders manually, to then be able to use mods (mostly .package files). A good guide "how to install .package files (in The Sims 3)", can be found here:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t22557-games4theworld-style-guides-mirror-links

Or alternatively just google around for "TS3 mod framework". You then have to insert that "Mods"-folder, under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3. 

Most mods then go into Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages.

Good luck for now!  Yess, aye lieeke!

You can also 'test' the basic functionality/whether you put the "Mods"-folder in the right place, by placing something like the "No-Intro Mod" into it (google will help you again here). If the game bypasses the intro, you set up your Mods-folder correctly.
