What if you bought the base game but want to download the gamepack?

Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to post.. but how does it work when you want to download a gamepack but already have a base game registered with origin?

Hello shiley7,


Some people have said they applied the Ultimate fix to a legit Sims 4 game, replacing all existing files and folders when prompted. And of course, you should NOT start Origin before playing the game (unless you want to use the gallery, in which case you may read up on this guide here).

Get the Ultimate fix here, and apply it to your legit game, by copying the files/folders to your game install location. And replace all existing files when prompted !

This will then update your game and get you the DLC like the Outdoor retreat.


Also, you may want to take note of this very important guide here:

Personally, I would actually recommend you un-install your legit Sims 4 from Origin, re-boot the computer, and then re-download the Games4TheWorld one. The registry entries for instance are not the same in legit game and the pirated version. Which might cause conflicts...but you may do as you wish.   I myself un-installed the legit game from Origin properly, and then simply re-downloaded the G4TW version. And everything works as smooth as silk for me. 


Good luck !
