New update on the TS4 Gallery - PLEASE READ! [14-11-2017]

Post by The_gh0stm4n on Thu 21 Sep 2017, 22:57

*** Important note: ALL individual requests for TS4 Gallery items are suspended indefinitely. Please read the announcement below. ***



Hello all!

As you may or may not have noticed, our The Sims 4 Gallery section has (or had) been inactive for quite some time, and we therefore decided to do things differently from now on. First off, we closed the section for all new posts & threads, meaning that no new requests will be allowed. We will also - until further notice - do away with 'individual item requests' altogether until we can find a way to sort this out more efficiently.

What we will do is to provide complete item packs, sorted by Origin IDs. Note that each pack contains all creations by that specific uploader, complete as by the date mentioned in the "Last updated.txt" file, inside each pack. Now some words about the recommended usage and how we will go from here in general:

---


1) Please don't post a topic in a different Forum section asking for individual items, just because you cannot post in the actual TS4 Gallery section itself. The suspension applies to the entire Forum. We will just ignore and/or delete these requests.


2) We cannot give any ETA about when or even if the individual requests will resume.


3) I suggest you don't put everything at once in your "Tray" folders, since this will seriously lag your games. You can temporarily extract each download with WinRAR onto the desktop. You will end up with a folder that has the name of the uploader plus the patch version that the items were downloaded with. You can now fetch the tool The Sims 4 Tray Importer to help you organize these downloads, and help you narrow down the mass of items to only the stuff that you really like; you can find a Mirror link to the tool here. Remember to keep the overall number of items in your Tray-folder not too high (no, I can't give you a more specific number, but you will notice you have too many items when it starts lagging while you scroll through your Library). A more in-depth tutorial on the Tray-Importer may follow, if needed.


4) Once you made your selection of items, copy and paste all the individual files (.householdbinary, .blueprint, .room, .trayitem, .bpi, .hhi, .rmi & .sgi ) of your selection, into the following location. C:\Users\(your username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Tray. Note that this folder location will only show up if you start the game at least once, after installing it.


5) And..enjoy your new Gallery-items!  Happy B-day!


6) Don't forget as well, the (old) items linked in the list of fulfilled TS4 Gallery Requests - while not having been updated for a while - also work in your G4TW/RELOADED games!
