Outdoor Retreat STILL not showing up despite fixes

Post by sidneyc77 on Wed 15 Jun 2016, 19:40

So I did things kind of backwards I suppose.. I already had the base game and Get to Work but I installed Get Together from the official games4theworld.org downloads page. Installation was no problem at all, and I had Get Together, Spa Day, Kitchen stuff, Luxury Party, Spooky, etc. but I did NOT have Outdoor Retreat. After realizing that, I went here to the forums to find the Ultimate Fix that said it would include O.R. and the Holiday pack. I installed the Ultimate Fix, followed all instructions, but Outdoor Retreat is still not showing up at all. I'm downloading via uTorrent, opening with WinRar and extracting from there into the Program Files (86x) > The Sims 4

An important note - the base game and Get to Work were legit purchased discs, NOT installed from here

Hello, welcome to the forum,  Very Happy
First of all you can't mix and match legit and pirated games at least for The Sims 4. Do you have legit purchases of The Sims 4 reistered to Origin? And saving can with mixed version of The Sims 4 can "delete" your content, disable it when you start game second time.
And why buy legit game when you can play it whole pirated? Follow this guide to do so. How you got game to not ask you for updates, get errors from Origin?

I've read from other posts on here that it's fine to mix both bought and pirated games, just can't use the gallery.. I just play with Origin completely closed and logged out. Haven't had any problems! So even though I've mixed the two and am able to play Get Together with no problems at all, I should still completely uninstall and pirate the entire thing in order to fix the problem?

Did you apply Ultimate Fix Updates Only?

I don't know.. literally all I did was first install Get Together and then after realizing there was no Outdoor Retreat I found the link on here for the Ultimate Fix and I installed that. That's all I did. I just assumed the link I found for Ultimate Fix would have all the updates that I needed?

Simplest solution, without downloading additional stuff is to:
1. Uninstall Origin.
2. Reboot.
3. Reapply Ultimate Fix. (Hoping you have it saved and downloaded)
4. Reboot. (Optional, but do it just to be sure.)
5. Run The Sims 4 as Administrator.

Note: As soon as you install a legit expansion to your game all pirated expansions you had in the game will be lost.
Suppose you have a legit base game and all further expansions pirated and you would install f.e. a legit Dine Out, you'll end up with just base game and Dine out and loose all other pirated expansions.

In your case:
Install Go to Work again from the G4TW downloads
Do the same with Get Together
Apply the crack.

Oh I know, I'll definitely be installing Dine Out from here once it's available. So I should keep my legit base game but uninstall Get to Work (that I had bought), uninstall Get Together (here from G4TW), then download and install both from here again?

Indeed, you should download all The Sims 4 addons and base game from here to avoid all that legit and pirated mix and match mess. Use following guide to install The Sims 4. Wait for future releases of other expansions, game and stuff packs.
If you have other problems feel free to open new thread. 
Happy simming!  I tip my fedora.
