Settings Up the Game

The app should detect the game automatically upon installation, but if that's not the case, please hover over the 'Locate Game' button and click 'Scan Now' > Select the drive where the game is installed > Click 'Scan'.


If the game is still not detected, please click 'Manually add a game' and select the folder that contains the game's process (TS4_x64.exe). 

For example, if you installed the game via Steam you will need to select the following folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\

If you installed the game via Origin you will need to select this folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\


For mac users: Please select the folder in which the The Sims 4.app file is located.
For example: /Users/[user]/Applications/


Please note: the app will automatically locate the game's 'Mods' folder, so you don't need to do anything more!


Installing Mods

CurseForge Mods

  • App

    You can easily install new mods for the game by following these steps:

    1. Click the 'Get More Mods' tab:



    2. Find a mod by using the search field, selecting a category or viewing the popular / new releases:



    3. Hover over a mod and click the 'Install' button:


      Or select multiple mods to install them in a batch:



    4. You can find your installed mods in the 'My Mods' tab:


  • Website

    You can install mods directly through the CurseForge website:

    If you don't have the app installed yet, follow the steps to get the app:



  • Manual

    You can download the file a mod's file and install it manually by following this guide.


Non-CurseForge Mods

You can manually install mods that aren't available in the CurseForge repository, and the app will still detect them.

The mods will be marked accordingly with the icon of a folder:


Updating Mods

If a new version is available for one (or more) of your installed mods, the orange 'Update' button will be shown on the mod.

You can update the mod in various ways:

  • Click the orange 'Update' button on the mod
  • Click the top left corner of the mod to select it, then click the 'Update' button at the top:


  • Click 'Update all':



Non-CurseForge mods cannot be updated through the app.

General

A few last things that we wanted to note:

  • Filtering your installed mods by game versions will be added as an option in future versions of the app. In the meantime, the 'Filter by text' option is available for you!


  • The app will not detect mods that were placed in a custom folder(s) (that you created manually) as CurseForge mods. The mods will need to be taken out of the custom folder(s) to one of the default ones ('Mods' or 'Tray') in order for the app to detect them as CurseForge mods.
  • The CurseForge app for macOS does not support The Sims 4 at the this time.
    The current ETA is 2023.
