Cannot find Installer for TS4 Expansions.

Post by edlan97 on Mon 21 Aug 2017, 03:14

So I downloaded the torrents for TS4 + the expansions etc. and was able to install TS4 basegame via the installer that is included. However when I went on to download Get To Work expansion I cannot seem to find the installer to begin the installation process. Sorry if this is dumb but all the installation instructions said to do was to copy and paste, which I figured wasn't enough to install the game. Thanks for your help.

All DLC's sofar are extremely simple.
Download -> Extract with Winrar -> Copy files and folders to your installation folder Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4
So no installer, nothing to install, just copy/paste

It is enough and as easy as that. As Tarac mentioned. Smile

I get that for an 'outsider' (people just enjoying torrents from to time) this may be confusing, but then: why would we put out an incomplete installation guide? Copy & paste is indeed enough. See, those "automated" installers that people are so familiar with, in principle don't do much else: they copy/paste files and folders onto your system, sometimes they also add registry entries. But manually copying and pasting has the same effect here, as using a fancy custom installer.
