Sims 4 Expansion issues?

Post by michikyou on Sun 12 Jul 2015, 01:02

hey team here.

I'm having  little trouble with the game, and maybe I think i'm just imagining things but, ive used your ultimate fix and everything and still no fix.

What i'm experiencing is when I place the data for the expansions in the directory given, and I play the game the game itself still doesn't acknowledge that they are installed. Nothing is different from the base game except from aesthetic update from the fix base game update.

Am I doing something wrong?
here's what i did:

1. Installed sims 3 using the 'setup button' (The Sims 4 Deluxe Edition - Reloaded)
2. Installed Sims 4: Get To work via the instructons provided (drag it into the folder etc)
3. Done the same for Sims 4 Holiday & Outdoor retreat packs
4. Applied the Ultimate fix
5. played the gane, noticed no differences.

How can I tell that the new things are available? I dont see any new jobs available or any new other activities even after 4 hours of playing.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


The only explanation for that in my opinion is that you either did not properly copy the stuff, or copied it to the wrong place. The correct location where the "Get to Work" and "Ultimate fix" files are to be copied is this here:


C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4


It is NOT the one in "My Documents\Electronic Arts" - a mistake that is very common for some reason. So again, take the whole of the "Get to Work"-download, and copy all files to the location in red that I just mentioned. When prompted overwrite all of the old files and folders. Then repeat the process with the latest Ultimate fix.

After doing it correctly, you should see a modified main menu in The Sims 4, illustrating the new sim careers. Good luck !
