Get to Work just won't show in my game

Post by RickYo98 on Sun 02 Apr 2017, 15:39

Greetings, everybody. I have some problems regarding The Sims 4, and need your help to solve it.  Why.

So, I have installed The Sims 4 base game without any updates few weeks before and everything went just fine. I also have applied Ultimate Fix to it and still doing fine, all updates are inside the game. Then I decided to add Get To Work expansion pack and downloaded it from Games4The World. After unrar it, I drag and move the folders into my Sims 4 folders. After that, I tried to run the game, but a message popped up, saying "Unable to start the game. .... run on a newer version...." or something like that. (I don't really remember the lines =-D). So, I applied the Ultimate Fix back, with the EP01, etc folders still being there. And the game gos fine, only without any Get to Work objects or careers inside the game.

Are my steps of installing it right already? And if they are, what is the problem then? But if they aren't, will you all please help me with the correct steps? I really appreciate every help from you guys. Thank you very much before.  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Regards,

RickYo98

//EDIT

If it might help, I install my game in the D directory because my C directory is smaller in size in comparison to D...

Hello and welcome to the Forum @RickYo98,

The reason you are having these issues is because you applied the Ultimate fix; it is not meant to be used in your case. It's difficult to explain, but the current TS4 Update-Only Ultimate is like the latest patch, just without any DLC. If you apply the fix, and then one of the earlier DLC, it is totally going mess up withe the chronological install order.

In order to fix your issue, re-copy and re-paste all G4TW-DLC, into your TS4 folder. Start with Get to Work, then Get together, and then City Living. A.k.a. steps #3, #4 and #5 here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly

Good luck!

Thank you very much for the explanation, @The_gh0stm4nVery Happy

So, will I be able to get the newest patch, but without installing Get Together and City Living? Sorry if I asked too much  WhatDidUJustCallMe?

The what you called "run a newer version" error can easliy be solved by removing the file GameVersion from the folder Documents - Electronic Arts - The Sims 4.

Did you perhaps apply the ultimate fix ?
That fix is intended for playing the base game only and no expansions.
Re-install basegame again - no fix - then Get to Work.

Hello and welcome to the Forum,

I'm sorry, but I really don't have the time anymore (these days) for things like that. If you need help with torrenting, check this guide here. For installation, see the topic here:

When you deleted the folder Electronic Arts from Documents, you also destroyed the folder The Sims 4 with all previous achievements incl. your mods
When you then booted your game, it created a new folder Electronic Arts in Documents and a new folder The Sims 4.
You now have a complete new game, no self made Sims, Lots, Families aso.
And, apparently, the game works perfectly without Mods. If you still want mods., you'll have to re-install them.

In my case, it`s the Get Together and Spa pack that is not in my game I is confused I`ve installed it just like it says not only once but 4 times, and read everywhere, but I can`t find the sulution anywhere. I have not installed the fix and I have dragged the sims file out of Electronic Art folder I is confused

Maybe you must download Get Together again, unless you installed in the wrong order:
1. Base Game
2. Get to Work
3. Get Together
4. City Living
