Settings Up the Game

The app should detect the game automatically upon installation, but if that's not the case, please try the following solutions:

Automatic Scan

  1. Open the app's settings:

  2. Click the '+' button, and then 'Scan computer for games':

  3. Select the drive where the game is installed and click 'Scan':

Adding The Game Manually

If the scan did not locate the game, try adding it manually:

  1. Open the app's settings:

  2. Click the '+' button, and then 'Manually add a game':

  3. Select the folder that contains the game's process (TS4_x64.exe), depending on the platform the game was installed through:
    • Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\
    • EA: C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\
    • Origin: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\

    • 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!

Installing Mods

CurseForge Mods

  • App

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

    1. Click the 'Browse' 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 by clicking on the checkmark on the top of the mod, and once all the mods you wish to install are selected click on "Install":

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

  • Website

    You can install mods directly through the CurseForge website:

    If you already have the CurseForge app installed just click 'Open CurseForge' and the mod will be installed right away:

    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.


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.
