Can I choose only which EP(along with its SP) to install? [SOLVED]

Post by spacecamper on Thu 25 May 2017, 08:19

I need to know if I can just install up to City Living only? I don't think my HDD will have space for now. Looking forward for your kind response.

Thanks! If I am also not capable of fitting City Living into my system, will it work if I stopped at Get Together? Also, I just want to confirm if skipping an EP is not acceptable?

I think you can not skip an EP. But you can play only up to base game, or getting to work, or whatever follows. You cannot play base game combined with toddlers and Vampires only. But I am speaking under correction here. This is how I understand it.

Can I choose only which EP(along with its SP) to install?

Can I choose only which EP(along with its SPs) to install?
As much as I want to try them all, I don't think my PC has enough storage and I want to play as light as possible with only few expansions. (I don't mind going few I think I would still enjoy the game.) Will they still work? Will they work by installing them in order? (I've been told not to skip any EPs) My plan is just to get the base game, GTW and GT sets. If my PC can handle another, CL.

I know that it is recommended to go for the complete package but it would be nice if this is possible. Thank you. Looking forward for a kind response.

With the Reloaded and G4TW downloads you can delete some DLC's afterwards.
With ZLOrigin you can choose what you want to install.

Does this mean with the Reloaded and G4TW I have to install them all then delete afterwards?
With ZLOrigin, can I choose only the EPs?

ZLOrigin will either overwrite your already installed Reloaded/G4TW games or it creates a new folder.
Yes in ZLorigin you can choose what you want to download.

But about the G4TW method, can I just stop at a certain EP set, like stopping at Get Together set along with its SPs?

Yes you can.
You can't do f.e. base game + City Living.
Keep the correct order for downloading and installing

Hi @spacecamper,


This is indeed correct. You cannot skip an older EP to play a NEW one. 
Do keep us updated if your questions has been answered regarding the above. If you encounter a bug or any kind, do open a new topic with said bug as the title so it won't clutter the thread.  Very Happy 

EDIT: Topic merged from you previous one. Do keep to one thread if it's related.

Many thanks to all of you!

I'll keep you guys updated soon after I got it running. I have decided to try up to GTW only so as to not shock my PC. Oh my... I don't have to use the Ultimate Fix right?

NO. Please don't. Only base game and get to work and then, if you have space get together. Good luck and enjoy

Glad to hear that you've got it running! Feel free to open a new thread (if there is none) should you encounter a new bug.


Happy Simming~! Very Happy
