Hi guys! I’ve downloaded the sims 4 from this site (with all expansions ) and works fine (for this thank you so much!!) but now I want to install mods and I noticed that in documents/electronicarts/thesims4 the mods folder is missing, I tried to create one with the resource.cfg file but for now don’t work.
Do you know how to install mods in this cracked version of the sims 4?
Thank you!

If it's missing then you're checking in wrong directory. Post a screenshot of what's inside "Documents\Electronic Arts".

Also note (in case you haven't), that the Mods-folder/location will only show up after you started the game at least once. So if you never installed or played The Sims 4 on your current computer, this might also be an explanation.

If that's the case, just start the game once, exit after you get to the main menu, and then you should have your Mods folder.

Edit: sorry, after reading your message more closely I'm assuming you did actually start up the game. If so, the correct location is C:\Users\(your Windows account name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods.

No, I played the games many times, I still playing it, but the folder has never appeared.
When i’m In documents folder I see all the folder that I’ve extracted from the separate download of the expansions..
I’ll post the screenshot soon as possible.

Yes, yes, I actually edited my previous reply. Smile  You can or should delete the stuff that you extracted. In the future it might also be better to simply extract stuff, into folders that are located on the desktop. And once you are done with installing, back up the installers or delete them, from the desktop.

You can also search your computer for a component from the TS4 Documents-folder. Search for example, "cachestr". Go inside your C: drive, and in the top right corner type the "cachestr" and search for it. I've seen it myself, that some antivirus programs "sandbox" stuff from the Documents-folder, and into a different location. I think I had Bitdefender at the time. So I had to search the computer for the re-located Documents-folder...

Edit: Or simply use the magnifying glass on your taskbar, for searching

This is clearly inside "C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4" folder. Mods don't go there, mods go to "Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods". I asked what's inside "Documents\Electronic Arts" to see if you have multiple folders there (some languages have different folder name).

But when I follow the guide for installing the Sims 4 I’ve read to relocate the sims 4 out of electronics arts folder and put it inside programs files (x86)

But we're talking about mods, not your installation folder... Mods go to "Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods".
