Expansion Packs not Found in Ultimate Fix Download

Post by PreshusHB on Fri 29 May 2015, 02:27

I've tried installing the Ultimate Fix download using the instructions given. (And yes, I made sure it was from the games4theworld website at http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18086-the-sims-4-ultimate-fix ) Everything went fine, and the Sims 4 does open and run correctly. However, no expansion packs whatsoever will appear in game.

So I went to the Ultimate Fix folder, and noticed that the folder I'd expect an expansion pack to be in is not there. Here is a screenshot of what the Ultimate Fix folder looks like after I downloaded it.


So as you can see there is a "GP01" folder and "SP01" folder for the Outdoor Retreat Game Pack and the Luxury Stuff Party Pack respectively. It's missing a folder called "FP01" for the Holiday Celebration Pack, which was said to be included on the Ultimate Fix download page.

Aside from the Holiday Celebration Pack folder missing, the Outdoor Retreat Game Pack and Luxury Stuff Party Pack are still missing whenever I try to play the game, even though their folders are in the download. I have no antivirus software of any kind to mess this up, and I started with a clean Sims 4 game, no custom content or mods of any kind.

If someone on this site could maybe record themselves installing the Ultimate Fix, that would help, but I know that's a lot to ask. Otherwise, I could record myself installing it so someone can point out what I'm probably doing wrong.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post, and for bothering to present us with the wonderful gift that is a free Sims 4 and DLCs in the first place. Any help given would be very much appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


For a start, in your screenshot there is a older named FP01 (below the "Delta"-folder)... ?

And yes, the "Get to Work"-expansion is not included. You will need to get it here:
https://games4theworld.org/downloads.html


But that's not all...you are supposed to apply the files from this "Get to Work"-expansion FIRST. And THEN you apply the files from the latest Ultimate fix.

Unfortunately I'm having the same problem as our friend here, I have read through the getting things to work sections several times to see if I was making a silly mistake but I've followed everything to the letter turned off all antivirus/windows defender to check, un installed and then re installed the main game added the get to work and then the ultimate fix latest version and yes everything shows up in the folder but I can only run the game as long as origin is on in the background (if I turn it off it just won't start with the usual errors) if it's on but offline the game runs fine with the patched things but will not recognize any expanded package.

Using windows 8.1 no idea if that makes any difference but all the help files discuss windows 7.

my problem it appears is that the ultimate fix just doesn't get through the lack of origin being off even though it says it will so any idea what's up with that?

Thank you so much Carlos for the quick response. I did what you said and it worked!

As for you Roberto, what you described is exactly what I did. Start with clean game, install Get to Work, then install Ultimate Fix stuff. It took me several tries but it finally worked. I also didn't open the game at all until everything was installed. I don't know if that changed anything, but somehow it worked. Oh, and I am able to open the game without Origin.

Where did you download your copy of the Sims 4? I used to use a copy that was not from this website and it required Origin. But I used the one from the G4TW downloads page and it doesn't need Origin for me. If you didn't already,you should get yours from there too.

Good luck with your game!

I downloaded the games 4 the world copy of sims 4 I just can't get it to start without origin which means no expansions and ugh. (Thinking of buying the darned thing).

Ok point to be made, the download of Sims 4 I had is the Games 4 the World version from Pirate Bay, which looks identical to the one you download from the official downloads section here but that one just doesn't work like it's supposed (without Origin) to and the one I got directly from here does, so problem fixed, real head scratcher that one.

Cheers.
