Where is Install in Sims 4 Expansion Zip Files??

Post by AmberHero on Tue 21 Feb 2017, 05:44

Hi Games4TheWorld,

I really cannot find the install application for the Sims 4 expansion packs in the downloaded Zip Files. I've looked under _Installer and do NOT see the install application.

I know that without installing, the game won't recognize the new packs even if you move all the folders from the downloaded expansion into the base game. I did that and I only see base game items, jobs, lots, etc, everything.

How and where do I install the expansions? I don't see the application anywhere after downloading.

Thanks,
AH

//EDIT

I figured out that you drag and drop from the Zip files into the Sims 4 folder, and that worked for the expansion packs, BUT now when I try to select a visiting Sim on my lot, I CANNOT select them OR see any of their social actions!

That was upon resuming my saved game from the base with the expansions in it. What happened and how do I fix it so I can select visiting sims??

First of all you'll have to extract the ZIP files wirh WINRAR.
Then copy/paste (or drag and drop) all files and folders to your installation folder, f.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4

Hello,


Note that it's always a good idea to have a good look at the #Installation Guide that is included with all of our downloads Smile
