Will the fixes ever be smaller?

Post by professorchaos on Mon 24 Aug 2015, 15:12

I know the people on here don't actually make the fixes, but does anyone think there will be a way that they could be made smaller in time? They are getting huge! By the end, they are going to be massive. It's already like 4 gb long! Are the offical updates from EA this big?

Hi there, @professorchaos! Very Happy

As our Ultimate Fixes are cumulative, they will indeed be getting bigger as time passes. We already separate just the game update from the DLCs, so if you just want to update your game, you don't have to download it all. In the future, we might separate it more, like having some DLCs in different files. We can't say anything for sure, though.

@professorchaos...as new content/DLC is released for Sims 4, the fixes will "naturally" get bigger over time. Also keep in mind that this fix contains "Get to Work" too, so you don't need to download the previous "Get to Work"-torrent from Games4theworld.

@SeoY, unless there is an absolute need for separating the DLC (meaning: TONS of people are requesting it), I would not do it, since it would be a bit of a hassle to keep up with that, in the long run. Also, it may confuse people even more, if you have too many separate downloads. As of now, not many people find the filesizes concerning, but indeed, we'll need to see.
