Why are things missing from the Sim or house I downloaded from the Gallery?

Sims and lots uploaded to the Gallery may contain custom or exclusive content. This content will be missing from your download if you don't have it installed to your computer. If you have the content installed but it's still missing, you may need to restart your game.

You can toggle the custom content option off and on when searching, by ticking or unticking the box on the left-side bar when searching the Gallery.

For more info on custom content for The Sims 4, check out our Mods article.

As you explore the Gallery, you can save content for future use to your Library. When you click into a Lot, Room or Household click the Save Lot To My Library icon.

To find these later on, at the top of the Gallery click on the My Library icon. Here you can view everything you have saved and can filter your saves by Lot, Household, and Room.
