Yes, it is possible but the slightest error may render your played games unaccessable.

step 1:
Install your Origin-bought game on an USB external drive, or drive D:. This can be achieved by changing the installation-folder in Origin

step 2
Install downloaded versions incl. expansions on your drive C:

Now you can play the game 2-ways
However, you must very carefully make use of 2 Sims 4 folders in Documents\Electronic arts
One for the original game and one for the downloaded game.
So each time you switch games you must rename the folder Sims 4 to either Sims 4_original or Sims 4_download and rename it Sims 4
Also bear in mind that stuff download from the Gallery not always compares with your downloaded version.
The easiest way would be if you are bi-lingual, f.e. Original game in English, downloaded game in Spanish as this will automatically create 2 different folders in my Documents\Electronic Arts.

Copy/paste items from the original game can sometime result in an eroor message that the game is no longer up-to-date and must be updated via Origin.

I have tried this method for a couple of weeks but had to remove and re-install many times due to errors in renaming folders and/or downloading material from the gallery that was not suitable for my game-version.

But, once again, it is possible (but not recomendable)

EDIT: On an original base-game you can of course install download expansions but:
1. Never let Origin update your game - all your expansions will get lost.
2. Don't use the Gallery, unless - see above.

Hello @adamzaid,

Essentially what @Tarac just described. And yes, you need to be careful with renaming the folder "The Sims 4" under Documents\Electronic Arts. 

Personally, I suggest that if you have a second computer (or at least free access to it), that you install your legit Sims 4 game on there, and download what you like from the gallery there. You can then transfer the "Tray"-folder from that other computer, over to your own computer via a USB-flashdrive or something.

The method with using a second computer might be easier for the average user, but let's see. Smile  Good luck anyhow, and feel free to post back if anything is (still) unclear !

It used to be possible to access the gallery from within a pirated game too, if you had Origin open, and your Origin-account had a legit Sims 4 base game on it.

But yes, due to the server changes that EA implemented, that possibility was blocked too (EA are also reading up on the topics in this and similar forums). So we need to use workaround methods, for this to work.


//EDIT

And the DLC after Get to Work have not been cracked yet. Please refer to our announcement here.
