Proceeding onward, open another Finder window and navigate to the Mods folder within your Sims 4 game directory. Typically, you can locate the game directory at Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4. In case you don’t have a Mods folder or have never installed mods before, create one inside “The Sims 4” folder. Alternatively, launching the game

at least once and then exiting will automatically generate the necessary folders, including Documents, Electronic Arts, and Mods. It’s crucial to ensure that the game is not running while you’re in the process of installing any modifications. Also, consider deleting the “localthumbcache.package” file from your Sims 4 folder for thoroughness.
