Sims 4 DLC/Stuff Packs/Expansion Packs Not Working

Post by Haeleigh on Sun 13 Aug 2017, 06:47

I recently downloaded everything you guys had available for the Sims 4, including all of the expansion packs and stuff like that. I followed your step-by-step guide on how to properly install everything, and I went back through the list multiple times to make sure I did everything right. When I loaded up the game, on the main menu, it showed that I owned every expansion pack, but for some of the expansion and stuff packs (The "Get Together" expansion pack included), it said that I owned the pack, but needed to connect online to download it and to use it. Is there a way to fix this??? Thanks.

I have the same problem, fresh install but loaded a previous save into the game. 

The expansions requiring download are:

Get to Work
Outdoor Retreat
Holiday Celebrations Pack

Of course my main save relies heavily on GTW. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Should I attempt replacing the affected EP##/SP## folder for each?

@Haeleigh Did you get this error (or simular) ?



In that case you have not correctly installed the Get Together pack.
Re-install from Get Together upwards.

Install again from your oldest pack upwards
@ThatITGuy So when Get to Work is missing, you'll have to redo them all except basegame. The G4TWpack Get to Work also includes Outdoor Retreat and Holiday Celebrations Pack

For both of you, also have a look at THIS PAGE

I am going to assume that you hover over the DLCs/packs at the left side and click on it, thus the pop up regarding connecting online appeared? If so, then there is actually no need to click on anything, and if none of the DLCs/packs are greyed out, it means that everything has been installed correctly and you can enjoy the game. If i'm wrong, then, just follow what Tarac had posted instead.

@Tarac

So I've reinstalled base game plus all expansions again, now I have everything EXCEPT Vampires & Bowling stuff. Do you know which EP contains that pack? (assuming re-install toddler > fitness) Thanks

Hi guys.
I downloaded the last updatefor Sims!
Before update I had version 1.20.60.1020 and I had first three game pack, firs seven stuff pack and first two expansion pack. After I update game to last version, i do not have anything, only base game.
How to fix that? Do I need to download all  again or what?

I fear you installed the Ultimate Fix.
That one is for the base game only, so don't use it when you want DLC's as this fix wipes out all DLC's installed.

@Tarac so do I have to reinstall everything and start from scratch, or can I just replace the expansion pack game folders? Like just reinstall those ones?

How could I fix that?
I started to download base game from here and all expansion pack! After I download all, i will install in order they said in their post.
After that should i apply that last ultimate fix?
