Sims 4 base game works, but no EPs.

Post by guyonabuffalo on Tue 03 Oct 2017, 03:56

Hey y'all!

You do fantastic work and I'm grateful for what you do. Thanks for providing these downloads and these forums!

I downloaded TS4 per the instructions and installed all of the packs in order. The base game is working well, but none of the EPs, SPs, or GPs seem to be installed. I followed the instructions to a 't' except for two things--1) I downloaded them all concurrently, leaving them to torrent overnight. I installed them all sequentially, for what it's worth. Could that be part of the problem? and 2) when the instructions said to install 'Toddlers, Vampires, and Bowling Stuff,' initially I accidentally pasted in the 'Toddlers Stuff' before realizing my mistake, removing it, and installing the correct patch.

So how should I approach this? Redownload, reinstall, etc? Or should I uninstall everything and start from scratch? And does it matter that I torrented them all at once instead of one at a time?

Thanks again, guys!

Hi @guyonabuffalo and welcome to the forum! Smile


You can't technically 'delete' any updates per se. I'd suggest re-installing everything so that there will be no misplaced folders or any conflicting ones. You can install them all at one go, there is of course no problem with that. As well as torrent-ing them all at once. Just make sure when you unrar them, there's no error. Very Happy

  1. Re-install base game -> Get to Work -> Get Together -> City Living -> Vampire
  2. Rename current Game folder to Game_ OR Delete the Game folder 
  3. Install Parenthood -> Fitness -> Toddler's Stuff.
  4. Should you have any missing worlds/error code 3 fix, download this fix here -> http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t31459-the-sims-4-error-code-3-game-starts-unexpectedly-in-spanish-fix
  5. Do NOT download anything else, unless you encounter a bug/error, to which you can update it here.

Good luck!

Awesome, thank you! I'll give this a try and update this with the results.


Edit: Alright! It seems to be working swimmingly (or shall I say 'simmingly?'). Started up in Spanish, so I patched that, though I wonder if I've cheated myself out of an engaging language-learning experience.

For anybody else who may find this later and experience this problem, here's what I did:

Back up save files elsewhere on the computer.
Uninstall The Sims 4 through the control panel.
Delete any folders labelled 'The Sims 4' from Program Files (x86) and Program Files.
Start fresh, following the instructions given here.

Thanks again! You're fantastic.
