Another manual how to install The Sims 4 and DLC's.

Post by Tarac on Sat 15 Jul 2017, 13:46

When installing the games, keep this order, 1 to 7. Do not skip a DLC.
Of course what you already have installed you don't have to download/install again.
Switch off your anti-virus when you extract and install the downloads.
Add your install folder to the exceptions of your anti-virus.



1. The base game.


  1. Download the torrent for the Base Game (The Sims 4)
  2. When torrent-download is completed extract with Winrar
  3. Click on The Sims 4 setup.exe to start the installation
  4. Whatever you try to change, installation will always go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4
  5. When installation is completed, MOVE (not copy) the folder The Sims 4 out of the folder Electronic Arts to any suitable location on your computer. This can even be on an external drive.
    That location will from now on be called your install folder.
    If you don't move it out of Electronic Arts you will get the Origin-error.
  6. Make a new shortcut on your desktop from that new location\The Sims 4\Game\Bin\TS4.exe

Infinite loading of Household (In case you've skipped step 5a)

When you have installed all DLC's incl. Fitness and still having problems moving households, because you     
skipped step 5a:
1. Delete the folder Game from your install folder
2. Download, extract with Winrar and place the new Game-folder in your install folder

When you do all this in the correct order, the game must work perfectly.
DO NOT APPLY OTHER UPDATES, FIXES, PATCHES FROM G4TW AS THESE ARE MEANT FOR PEOPLE WISHING TO PLAY WITH THE BASE GAME ONLY AND YOU WILL LOOSE ALL PREVIOUSLY INSTALLED DLC'S
