Downloading from scratch. [SOLVED]

Post by xllmtx on Fri 09 Feb 2018, 15:34

GHi, re installing sims4 and all expansion packs from scratch onto my pc. It has changed slightly since  my last visit (ultimate fix, pirate bay etc) I see that the packs need to be downloaded in a specific order, or is this just installed in a specific order? Can I have them all downloading in butlord at once or do I need to wait till each individual one has downloaded and installed before moving onto the next? Thanks!

Downloading can be done in any order, but installing only in the order as described in the must-read section, http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly#.

There are some torrent-downloads available on the internet for an all-in download, but none of these are updated upto and incl. version 1.39.74.1020.
There is one direct, trusted and reliable, DOWNLOAD covering everything from basegame upto and incl. Laundry Day latest version 1.39.74.1020.
It comes as an .iso file and is originally intended for members of my Dutch forum.


  1. Download the .iso (25,12 GB)
  2. Mount in PowerIso or Daemon (In windows 10 just rightclick on the iso and choose Open with Explorer)
  3. Copy all files and folders from the mounted iso to your hard disk (or external drive)
    Do NOT install into directories like Origin, Origin Games, Electronic Arts.
  4. Start the game by clicking on TS4 or TS4_x64.exe in your installation folder The Sims 4\Game\Bin (make shortcut)
  5. Game is by default in Dutch but you can change the language of course.


This is the kind of download G4TW is planning to release after the last DLC of the Sims 4 (When The Sims 5 starts)

Don't blame G4TW for not offering such a download themselves as a torrent at present. It would become extremely confusing uploading a new version everytime Electronic Arts decides to come with a new DLC or update. Besides that, most people already have many DLC installed so they don't need a large over 25 GB download after all.
Also bear in mind that G4TW nowadays is a forum only. The Admins/Mods have no longer access to the download-page (https://games4theworld.org/downloads/) and cannot add new expansions to that page. The staff does whatever they can to keep us uptodate with the current games but their possibilities are limited.

I actually tried and succeeded in uploading the entire installation folder of The Sims 4 on MEGA, and was going to talk to ~Ann~ about it, but since those mini-updates seem to be released more frequently these days, it is (still) a huge hassle, and from my perspective we're not sure if we are going to publish those downloads.

Of course, there will be an all-in-one release, at the end of the game's lifespan.

Probably going to leave it up to @Tarac to 'attending' those requests for all-in-one releases.

I'll do my utmost and try to keep these all-in-one up-to-date. Uploading 25 GB took me approx. 3 hours

I am going to attempt to download the link you put up Tarac (I'm a bit anxious as to how reliable it is etc) but I hope it works. Thanks for sharing. Currently it says it will take roughly 3 hours to download.

Downloadtime is of course dependable on the speed of your internet.
The game itself is 100% reliable and comparable with the G4TW downloads

When you have mounted the downloaded .iso in Poweriso or opened the .iso with Explorer you'll see 1 folder The Sims 4.
Copy that folder to anaywhere on your computer but not into another folder Origin, Origin Games or Electronic Arts.

When copied open the location you have copied it to, open the folder Game, open the folder Bin
When you click TS4.exe or TS4_x64.exe the Sims 4 will start (however in Dutch)
To change the language, open the file RldOrigin.ini first with f.e. notepad. Change the line Language=nl_NL to your requested language such as Language-en_US for english.
Save the file and rightclick on TS4 or TS4_x64 to start the game as an Administrator.

The picture you showed us doesn't look like the Sims 4 all in one, but The Sims 4 base game.

The download from that page is 25,1 GB
Your picture shows just less than 4 GB

So it looks like you mounted the wrong iso in Poweriso
When you use Poweriso don't try with Explorer as well. It's either or.
