Let the Sims 4 use more memory?

Post by claudiasharon on Thu 25 Jun 2015, 15:14

Is there a way, like in the Sims 3, to allow the Sims 4 to use more memory (RAM)? I have 10 GB in my computer and would really like to get the Sims 4 to use about half of that. Is it even possible?

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, I couldn't figure out where to post it!

Hello again,


Back in the era of Sims 3, we used to apply the so-called "4GB patch" on the .exe files of Sims 3; this functioned as a "switch" so that the game could use up to 4GB of RAM, instead of the standard 2GB. Provided that the individual user has 4GB of RAM or more on the computer.

But you shouldn't use that 4GB patch on the TS4.exe in Sims 4, as it seemingly breaks the crack. From what I have been able to figure out, the TS4.exe has already been made by EA to be "Large Adress Aware", meaning that it can already use more RAM, than the standard 2GB.

Keep in mind though that technically, the game still can only utilize a maximum of 4GB of RAM, provided you have a 64-bit Windows OS too. It doesn't matter how much actual RAM you have, as the TS4.exe is a 32-bit application, and hence it cannot use more than 4GB of RAM.

Plus, I don't think that as of now (or even in the near future) your game will actually use that much RAM, but let's see.  Smile
