How to uninstall unwanted packs?

Post by aadvdrak on Tue 31 Jan 2017, 04:12

Hello, this is my first time posting here and I'm not sure if I'm putting my question in the right section.


OK so I noticed that my fps rate on Sims 4 has been slowly decreasing after installing all the ep+SP+GP, I was wondering if there is a way to safely uninstall several EPs and GPs that I don't even play (like Get to work and Outdoor Retreat)? I have the fitgirl repack (I'm pretty sure its the reloaded one) with whopping 18gb of size. I have checked control panel but it only displayed The Sims 4 City Living (with a size of 19gb) with no mention of any other packs. So if I uninstall through the control panel I would've deleted the whole Sims games, whereas I just need to get rid some of the packs.


I have tried deleting the GP01 folder from the Sims 4 folder but it actually rendered my game unplayable (it hanged on loading screen). Can any of you guys help me? Sorry for the badly written English lol.

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.


Unfortunately it's not possible at this time to be selective about what you want to have installed. 
I would like to suggest that you find a way to limit your frame rate.
Sometimes you can do this with your graphics software, or you can use a 3rd-party software in stead.

Any error-messages ?
Please note that it can take quite some time before the game reacts when you have deleted folders.

Hello and welcome to the Forum @aadvrak,

I moved your post to the correct section. That said, you can either wait about a minute or two for the game to "unfreeze" (which can be annoying if you play the game regularly), or you can have a look at this here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t24629-the-sims-4-update-only-ultimate-fix-out-now-version-1-25-136-1020

If you want to use this, you will probably have to uninstall your stuff, and start over by re-installing the base game and applying the update-only-fix. With this fix, the game does not freeze at startup.

Good luck either way!
