Using cracked save file with bought game.

Post by canidia on Fri 08 Jul 2016, 06:32

So, my husband said he might let me get all the expansions and stuff packs as a bday gift. I was wondering though, can I use my save file and all my cc with the bought game or do I have to start it over?

No need to start over, Just make sure you keep your mods (CC and Scripts) updated, The Sims 4 saves data in 'Documents --> Electronic Arts --> The Sims 4', make a backup of it to avoid corruption of save files and mods.

Hello, and welcome to the forum,  Very Happy
to backup Documents folder use this guide
When you install all addons from Origin:
1) Run game.
2) When you're on main screen, exit game.
3) Copy your backed up files to Documents.
4) Play game.

Beware if you saves are done with last cracked version ( 1.13 ) is high probability dont work with last update 1.20 ( go dine ) because this patch change alot stuff which is incompatable.

It will work. 
Create new folder on desktop. Name it whatever you want. You need to go to Documents\The Sims 4. Now, copy folders Mods, Saves, Screenshots, Tray, SaveSimInfoData to created folder on Desktop.
Uninstall pirated The Sims 4 and delet Documents folder. Good thing is to uninstall pirated The Sims 4 with Your Uninstaller! Pro using Super Mode. Reboot PC. 
Install all legal addons of The Sims 4 and run The Sims 4 for the first time. When you're on main menu exit game. Now copy previously backed up foldeers to Documents\The Sims 4. Play game.

Interesting discussion for sure...in the meantime I put an old savefile of mine (1.10 version, since I seemingly lost my 1.13 one) into my fully updated legit base game, and no problems so far. The only problems you will get are messages that say "GameData incomplete" and "some items were removed", which is logical in my case, I only have the legit base game, and the pirated game has stuff on it which is not there in the legit base game.

See it from this perspective: imagine someone bought and played TS4 a year ago or so, and for some (irrelevant) reason has not turned on Origin since then. If that person today decided to log back into Origin and update the base game of TS4, should that person be punished for having an older savefile ? In my eyes at least that would be too harsh. Smile

Savefiles in modern games are mostly "forwards compatible", and even in the very rare case they are not, there will often be some functionality that allows you to transfer your old progress over. What could be more problematic is the opposite case, namely "backward compatibility". That means, if you were to use an 1.20 savefile for TS4, in a pirated 1.13 version of the game.
