All expansions/stuff/game packs have uninstalled themselves! [SOLVED]

Post by Fallen_Angel on Sat 31 Dec 2016, 12:21

Was using G4TW version of sims 4 (all packs and updates provided installed), it was working perfectly yesterday.  I started up the game today and it's literally the base game.  Also came up with notification saying all saves associated with the packs have been deleted and I may notice some deleted items from base game saves... HELP?!

Hello,


Is there anything that could've changed? A virus scan perhaps, that may have deleted some files? Is there anyone in your household that may have accidentally uninstalled programs?

Hmmm... I'm not sure what to tell you at this point, please wait for @The_gh0stm4n to see your message. He will probably come by within the next 12-24 hours.

It looks like you have the G4TW downloads installed on top of a legal Origin Game.
When Origin updates you'll loose all pirated DLC's

I just want to add, that expansions/DLC cannot "uninstall themselves", if you copied & pasted them properly in the first place. Any and all issues that arise are due to file or folder permission problems, and the newer Windows-systems are in particular prone to this type of thing. Not just with The Sims 4, but in many other games as well. Smile
