Hello @Voltrob and welcome to the Forum,


Make sure to run the TS4.exe as Administrator first of all (right-click -> run as Administrator). Then check out this post here too, with possible solutions:

Good luck for now, and do keep us posted!

Hello,
So upon further investigation I found that only 3 packs are loading. So I decided to mess around with the file layout and moved a pack folder from the Delta folder to the Root game folder. The pack then registered but the items were missing. This is after following the install guide included in the fix download. I also read on different pages that expansion packs needs to be installed separately and in a certain order? does this apply tho the ultimate fix?

Thank you for you help Very Happy

Yes, in general the install order is: Base game -> Get to Work -> Get together -> City Living. See also this here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly

The current "City Living" torrent replaces the previous Ultimate fix. I'm not entirely sure how you messed with the folders/files, but you may want to start over, by copying and pasting Get to Work, over your base game folder of TS4. Continue with Get together, and finally repeat the same with City Living (or the old Ultimate fix, if you wish).

Hello,

Kindly edit your previous post, instead of writing a new reply, if you have something to add and there haven't been replies yet Smile

For the correct way to install everything, see this topic here.

Sorry, relatively new to forums Smile
Ok so is this right or am I horribly wrong?
You download and install the 3 expansion packs separately and use the ultimate fix to update them?
Thanks for all the help, I'm just so lost

They're all downloaded separately, but you no longer need the fix. The latest release, City Living, is installed last and results in an up to date game.

Ok so, do you need to do the first 2 to get the 3rd or can you only do city living?
Also, will installing all 3 include Outdoor retreat?
Sooo sorry for all the questions Why.

Don't worry about it, we're here to answer your questions Smile
You can do just City living, no problem. Installing all of them should give you a complete game.

I swear I'm almost done *facepalm*
The city living pack does not include Outdoor retreat, does Get together or Get to work?

I am not 100% sure, but I believe it should be included with the "Get to work" files.

Thank you so much! Last Question: In the future when the game is updated, how does the update procedure work?

When a new update is out, we will all wait (im)patiently for the scenegroups to release a crack. Once the new crack is out, you will know it.
It can take a while, so patience is a virtue here.
You can't download and install any game updates from legit sources for a pirated game.

On G4TW there are 5 packages to download and install in the correct order:
1. Basic game
2. Get to Work
3. Get Together
4. Dine Out
5. City Living

No fixes required.

Don't skip any of these.
When you install them directly after each other you don't have to apply the cracks in between.
City Living contains the latest crack.
Bear in mind that all items above are updates, none of them contains the whole game, but together you'll have everything upto and incl. City Living and even Vintage Glamour
