Question: Uploading lots in gallery using base game! Please help!

Post by Riri17 on Thu 13 Jul 2017, 06:26

Hi  I downloaded the sims4 with all the packs but we can't connect to the gallery I was just wondering if I can upload the lots that I made from the pirated version using only the base game or will I have to buy all of the packs? Like for example I used some furnitures from the fitness pack/get to work will I have to buy it to upload the lot?

Just making sure before I purchase the base game

Yes, that should be possible if you install the legal base game in a different directory than your pirated ones.
When that's succesfully done, both versions use the same The Sims 4 folder in Documents\Electronic Arts.
So lots made in the pirated version are available in the legal version and can be uploaded.

Beware that lots made in the pirated version that contains elements from expansion packs will loose those elements as soon as used and SAVED in the legal version.

but if i don't use the lot and just upload it straight to the gallery will those who download it from the gallery be able to see/use the things I used from the pirated expansion packs? sorry if i ask to many questions just clearing things out before i actually get the game  Why.

I'm not sure about that.
When you start the legal base game you'll get a message about missing contents.
I don't use CC, so can't really comment about it.

Feel free to upload your house to the Gallery, and then post your Origin/creator ID (or send it to one of us through private messaging if you don't want to post it in public). I'll see if the house you uploaded contains the DLC content, next time I start up my own legit TS4. Smile
