    I get a TON of messages asking why TSR Workshop isn't showing items for TS3 and/or TS4 when you try to start a new project.

    This is a common issue and can be fixed very easily. All this issue means is that TSR Workshop can not find your game paths.

    Programs we will be using:
    Here are a few links for those who need more help with learning TSR Workshop:
    First, make sure you have the games installed. If you are trying to use TSR for TS3 or TS4 you must have the base game installed. If you are wanting to use anything in a EP/SP you must also have those packs installed.

    If you do not have these items installed you can not use TSR Workshop

    1. Open 'TSR Workshop'

    2. In the top left corner naviage to 'Edit' > 'Preferences'

    3. Under the 'Preferences' tab, select 'Folders'.
    Once you are under the folders tab you will see the list as pictured below.
    If you do not see the "C:\Program Files (x86)..." this is okay. We are going to set these up.

    4. This is your game paths. For each EP/SP there is a path that TSR workshop needs to find the files for each game.
    Here is a list of where you will find each game path.

    I have my thing set up like that, but it's not working. My Sims 3 is through Steam, so the location is different, but Sims 3 is working fine. But I can't get Sims 4 to work.

    Base Game is linked to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4 and Sims 4 Data is linked to C:\Users\Pi\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4. What did I do wrong?
