Which Update to use please (just to be sure)

Post by xerendipity on Wed 02 Aug 2017, 08:05

Hi all!

I haven't played or uploaded any updates in a while.  I don't have Toddlers or Vampires or Bowling, or any of the 'Stuff' packs after the Romantic stuff.   Can someone let me know what I need to update, please?  Would it be the latest Ultimate Fix and that alone?

Thanks in advance.

Also, our downloads (by order) can be found here. Do not bother about the fixes as Tarac had mentioned and read the guide provided by him (above) carefully.

Do keep us updated if you're able to install the game to this thread. Surprised

We don't really have an official "Ultimate fix" anymore for TS4, as the new releases are named after their DLCs. We have an Update-Only Ultimate fix, but unless you have a weak computer and/or a slow internet, you should not use it.

Please bookmark the thread here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly

And check it out, time and time again. It gets updated every time we release new Sims 4 DLC. Smile

Oh, okay.  Thank you for the link!

-----------------
Actually, one more question please (and I am not sure if it has already been addressed, but humor me please) ... if I have everything up to the patch(es) BEFORE Vampires or Toddlers and I THINK I got there with a couple of Ultimate Fixes, can I just install the new packs which I am missing, or do I need to begin from scratch?  Also, may I choose WHAT to install, as in can I skip the Vampires pack if I do not wish to have Vampires in my game?

Thanks!

When you have City Living installed you can proceed with:

* Toddlers/Vampires
* Delete the folder Game from your install folder The Sims 4 in Program Files
* Parenthood
* Fitness

You can't skip DLC's, but you can delete individual expansions, like Vampires, from your game.

Go to your install folder The Sims 4 in Program Files
Open the folder Game
Open the folder Bin
Open the file RldOrigin.ini with notepad
Scroll down to



Put semi-colons in front of the items you don't want



Now save the file.
When you start the game you'll notice that the icon for Vampires is now grey.

Should you later decide to play with Vampires anyway, just remove the semi-colons.

So it doesn't matter how far behind we are on updates, we can always use this link? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly#
I don't check this forum every week, so sometimes there have been multiple updates and I'm always a bit confused if I can just follow the normal guide or if I need other things as well.

Apart from bookmarking the thread, you can also check out our FB-page here, on which we typically announce all important news as well, including new game releases: https://www.facebook.com/Games4theworld/

There is also the possibility of signing up for the e-mail newsletters: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1706-join-our-the-sims-fans-group-to-stay-up-to-date-with-the-latest-the-sims-news

Just keep in mind that the newsletters will be sent to the e-mail address associated to your Forum account. In case of doubt, double-check whether it is still your *latest* e-mail account (we have sometimes people who registered long ago/with outdated addresses, and then wonder why the e-mail system doesn't work).
