For players who want to find all of their Alpha CC in one place with less time spent on navigation, The Sims Resouce is one of the best choices. This is one of the most popular sites for downloading custom content, especially Alpha CC. Downloads can be made directly from the site. The only downside of TSR is the number of ads when you don't pay for a premium subscription. Here are some of the best creators on TSR:

Patreon may not be what you think of when you want to browse for video game custom content, but it can be a helpful source. Many creators choose to host their Alpha CC on Patreon, so you can find some useful downloads here. While there is plenty of controversy around paying for Sims 4 CC, there are creators on the platform who only charge for early release access or to have a say in what content is made. You can still find free Alpha CC from creators on Patreon, such as:

If you're looking for another site that gives you Alpha CC from several creators, The Sims Catalog is a great option.

Here are some creators we recommend checking out:

How to download Alpha CC in The Sims 4

Alpha CC is not downloaded differently than mods or Maxis Match content in The Sims 4. Simply download your custom content files and take them to the Mods folder. You can find this folder on the Documents-Electronic Arts-The Sims 4-Mods pathway.

Make sure not to put these files more than one folder deep in the Mods folder. If you do, they won't show up in the game. Finally, make certain that you have enabled Custom Content in your Game Options.
