Step 3: Accessing the Sims 4 Mods Repository

Next, open another File Explorer window and navigate to the Mods folder in your Sims 4 game directory. Typically, you can find 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 generate the necessary folders, including Documents, Electronic Arts, and Mods, to ensure a smooth mod installation process. Make sure the game is not running while you install any modifications and consider deleting the “localthumbcache.package” file from your Sims 4 folder for good measure.
