    Just as a reminder. Your Electronic Arts folder is always found under the Documents section for both Windows and the Mac.

    Your Mods folder is in Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4. Add CC/Mods in there.

    There was the sims 4 thing but it wasn't a folder, it just sent me in to the game what do i do???

    Documents > Electronic Arts > Sims 4. That is where your saved games will be stored. There will be a series of folders where you should be able to add CC and Mods to the Mods Folder.

    On mac you go into documents which is under iCloud in your finder then the electronic arts folder will come up

    Only if you have iCloud Drive enabled which not everyone does. It is also possible to rearrange the order of the Finder sidebar and add and remove things from it. The actual file path is Macintosh HD > Users > "user" (Home folder) > Documents

    well I have done started the game, even made a save, checked all the boxes, relieved hidden folders. And to no avail, that folder doesn't exist on my windows 10. I even went as far as making one and it doesn't recognize it..

    On My Mac Sims 4 was frozen so i axadenty deleted the sims 4 folder dose anyone know how to get it back [sorry for spelling]

    It should be in your recycle bin as long as you didn't empty it. So you should be able to right click it there select copy and then open the Electronic Arts folder and paste it back in.

    Then you're probably better off posting in the main technical forum as this is the Mac forum. Maybe you should contact EA to see about licences in Zimbabwe - https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/

    It should be there. Documents > Electronic Arts > Sims 4 Did you download to an external drive?

    Locating the Electronic Arts folder is the same for Windows and Macs. Locate your Documents folder (For Macs it is found under your Hard Drive). Open your Documents folder and look for the Electronic Arts folder which should contain the Sims 4 folder.
