Pack System: Add DLC’s to your legal base game (Mac version)

Pack System: Add pirated DLC’s to your legal Origin base game (Mac version)

When you have at least the Sims 4 base game via Origin you can add pirated DLC’s to your legal game for free. (Not sure that it also works for Steam)
You can get the legal base game for free from Origin now.

  • Always automatically the latest version (Origin updates it for you)
  • No problems with anti-virus (there are no cracks)
  • Much smaller downloads (example: Cottage Living is now only 1.6 GB instead of 11,4 GB)
  • Easier to add missing DLC’s for free
  • Less problems with your CC
  • Access to the Gallery
  • No game-cracked folder
  • No hassle with remid cookie
  • Play via Origin/Steam as if you bought all expansions..

New DLC’s however must still be added manually (step 3), although much smaller in size. (example: Cottage Living now 11,4 GB, with this system only 1,6 GB)


Preparations in Origin

  1. Log in to your Origin account
  2. Click on the word Origin (left top bar)
  3. Click Application Settings
  4. Click Application
  5. In Client update:   switch “Automatic game updates” and “Automatically update Origin” on – see picture below.
    Now your game and Origin update whenever you start your The Sims 4

 

 

 

Find the location of your original (legal) game

The packs should be in:
[Your home directory] > Applications > The Sims 4 Packs

What the home directory is called will depend on what your user/computer is called. To find it, you can use the Finder – it should be in the left hand menu with a little house icon. Otherwise you can also open the finder and press command + shift + H to open the home directory 🙂

NB there is also a The Sims 4 folder in Documents > Electronic Arts (this is where saves go), as well as multiple other folders/shortcuts called ‘Applications’ which makes this all a little trickier than necessary!

As i don’t have a Mac i can’t try it out. 


STEP 1

  1. Download a small file the Origin DLC unlocker v1 for Mac
  2. Double-click to extract the downloaded file
  3. Quit Origin (closing the window is not the same)
  4. Ignore the Windows files
  5. From the downloaded and extracted file Run “fix OriginClient.command”.
    If you get an error stating the file comes from an unidentified developer – right click that file and select “Open”.
    If you get an error stating you don’t have appropriate access priviliges – make the script file executable
  6. Run “add fake entitlements.command” and do what it says.

If you want to revert all changes. Run “delete entitlements.command” and re-download Origin app

Example of downloaded and extracted Unlocker

Things to remember:

When Origin updates repeat step 5.
When a game gets a new DLC re-download the Unlocker and repeat step 6.
When a game gets a new update you don’t have to do absolutely anything.

From now on every time you want to play the game:
0. Exit Origin if it’s running.
1. Start Origin (you MUST be online).
2. Select Origin > Go Offline.
3. Start the game.
4. Try going online, you can do it from Origin in-game overlay. If that removes the DLCs repeat the process and stay offline.
5. Enjoy your game!

STEP 2 (Optional)

  1. When you already have cracked DLC’s in another folder, copy the EP’s, GP’s and SP’s only to the folder of your legal game
  2. When Origin updates repeat step 5 of Step 1
    When a game gets a new DLC re-download the Unlocker and repeat step 6 of Step 1.
  3. Play the game via the legal installation folder – Game ->Bin ->TS4_x64 or shortcut thereof.

Added information by Mac user Lamp (thank you for sharing)

For those who are struggling to add DLC’s to their game, here’s an easier way of understanding:

  1. Make sure you’ve repeated “STEP 1” for the DLC Unlocker
  2. Download chosen DLC’s (via https://sims.tarac.nl/direct-links-to-packs/) and extract the folder from the .iso file* (e.g. SP35)
  3. Locate your ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder:
    a. Open Finder and do: Shift + Command + H
    b. Click on ‘Applications’
    c. Locate ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder, if missing create a new folder with the exact name
  4. Drag your DLC folder (e.g. SP35) into ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder
  5. Download the DLC Unlocker again and run: “fix OriginClient.command”
  6. Open Origin and go to: Account > Go Offline (in the menu bar)
  7. Open your Sims 4 game

*Double click the .iso file and drag out the folder from the window
** Right-Click File > Open With > Terminal

NOTE:
• You must repeat steps 4-5 in order to add new DLC’s to your game
• Steps 6-7 must be repeated every time you want to open your game to play with DLC’s and/or with online features
• If your DLC’s haven’t appeared in-game, restart Origin and repeat step 6

STEP 3 (Add missing DLC’s)

  1. Download this torrent for the packs or select packs via direct download
  2. Click Select none and then click the missing DLC’s
  3. Extract with Winrar
  4. Copy the extracted folders to the folder of your legal game
  5. re-download the Unlocker and repeat step 5 of Step 1
  6. Play the game via the legal installation folder – Game ->Bin ->TS4_x64 or shortcut thereof. (or directly via Origin)

Commented by Anna:

Wow this worked like a charm, thank you so much!!

In STEP 3 (Add missing DLC’s) I struggled to find where my legal game packs are installed, so I thought I’d share what I found in case anyone else is having the same issue:

The packs should be in:
[Your home directory] > Applications > The Sims 4 Packs

What the home directory is called will depend on what your user/computer is called. To find it, you can use the Finder – it should be in the left hand menu with a little house icon. Otherwise you can also open the finder and press command + shift + H to open the home directory 🙂

NB there is also a The Sims 4 folder in Documents > Electronic Arts (this is where saves go), as well as multiple other folders/shortcuts called ‘Applications’ which makes this all a little trickier than necessary!

STEP 4 (add future DLC’s to your game)

  1. Download the torrent for the new DLC or use the direct download
  2. Extract by double-click
  3. Copy the downloaded and extracted folder  to your legal The Sims 4 folder
  4. re-download the Unlocker and repeat step 5 of Step 1

As you don’t have to worry about amendments in the folders __Install, Data, Delta, Game, Support (Origin does that for you) all you have to do is copy the extracted EP, FP, GP or SP folder from the download to your legal installation folder.

Presume the next DLC will be SP32 then, instead of downloading several GB, it will be restricted to maybe 250 MB)
For just (Pre-)Updates you do not need anything at all. Just play the game and it will be automatically updated to the latest version.


3 methods for adding DLC’s: Suitable for Windows and Mac

Download via torrents (selectable) in Winrar format Download DLC’s via direct download All DLC’s in 1 iso download
  1. Download the torrent for EP’s for the packs in winrar format
    Download the torrent for GP’s in Winrar format
    Download the torrent for FP and SP’s in winrar format
  2. Make your selections
  3. When downloads are finished, select the .rar files
  4. Right-click on the selection and click Extract
  5. In the pop-up window search for the installation folder of your legal game
Here you can select and add Packs in .iso format (no specific order required)

Go to this Page

  1. Download the torrent for the all-in-one
  2. When download is finished mount the iso
  3. Copy the folders of the DLC’s to your legal installation folder

Simple way of installing all 18 languages in one go

Please bear in mind that when you installed the game via Origin only 1 language is available, meaning that when you installed in English you cannot change to f.e. Norwegian.
In such cases you’ll have to re-install the game in Norwegian in Origin.
Also downloads from many other sources are often in 1 language only (such as English or Spanish)

Download the Language Strings, extract with Winrar and copy all folders to your legal installation folder
When you have all languages installed, download the Language Changer, double-click and select your language.
In our downloads all languages are already installed.
You can activate the Language-changer from anywhere on your computer, no specific folder required.

    1. i found a solution!!!!!! i had to uninstall and delete everything (backed up my mods and the packs from this site to a hard drive) INCLUDING the Electronic Arts folder found in DOCUMENTS!! did everything the same as usual and it’s back again 🙂

  1. Since the latest update (Ventura 13.1) there’s no way to run those DLCs! I tried literally everything, I reloaded Origin, I let “terminal” to do anything to my mac, I even deleted the DLC folders from Sims 4 packs and re-downloaded. Is there anyone having the same issue? Is it the end for the mac users to have something FREE for once?

    1. having the same issue here, i’ve literally done everything too. it says “you already own this pack” on origin but it’s still base game. 🙁

      1. GUYS IVE FOUND THE SOLUTION. basically this website is to just UNLOCK THE DLC meaning you have to SEPARATELY DOWNLOAD THE DLC PACKS ITSELF and put it in the right folder. this is why it says “you already owned this pack” but when you hover over it, it says “download to use” so the dlc unlocker works perfectly fine, you just need to still download the dlc. the same person who made this unlocker has the DLC PACKS for download ( mac and windows ) ON THE THIRD POST of this website https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?p=930237#p930237 there you can find on HOW to download the dlc and WHERE to put it. NOTE the third post is for people with the LEGAL GAME and want to use the HACKED DLC.

        want to say this just in case
        in that third post under the name “DLC only: ” there is another link to download the dlc packs ( you have to make a account to see it because it’s hided) when you click one of the 2 links you get send to another page and there you have options to pick which website you want to use to download. in my case the only one that worked for me and my mac was the link Next to “multiple hosts”

        1. Ive tried for 3 days to fix using this method but I dont understand if Im supposed to delete the files I downloaded from this site and download from JDownloader or keep both files. Please help.

    2. I’ve never had problem with this method but since the last update it won’t run the DLC anymore… I had to delete the whole thing :(( please try to find a solution :((

  2. I’m getting this message when i run fix OriginClient: “Allow Terminal to access files and then run this script again”
    what do i do?

    1. The way I fixed the issue is by going to applications folder –> go to origin and go to the application’s “show package contents” –> click contents folder –> click MacOS folder –> select open “OriginClient” using terminal and then when I went back to fixOriginclientcommand from the DLC Unlocked it says Originclient successfully fixed! Then I repeated the steps as usual to get the DLC to work

    2. Va dans Réglages système > confidentialité et sécurité > accès complet au disque et autorise Terminal
      ensuite il faut de nouveau exécuter le correctif OriginClient et normalement ça le fera avec succès

      Go to System Settings > Privacy & Security > Full Disk Access and allow Terminal
      then you have to run the OriginClient patch again and normally it will do it successfully

  3. I have all the DLC installed and it says they are owned. However, when i go to create a sim it seems as though all the packs are corrupt or broken. my sim has red and white checkers with a black question mark on them. im not sure what im doing wrong here

      1. Bonjour,
        J’ai un mac et moi aussi j’ai un problème avec les packs. Quand j’éxécute le fixOrigin command ça m’affiche ça : “xattr: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted: ‘/Applications/Origin.app/Contents/MacOS/OriginClient’
        xattr: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted: ‘/Applications/Origin.app/Contents/MacOS/OriginClient’
        Allow Terminal to access files and then run this script again: https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/control-access-files-folders-mac-mchld5a35146/mac
        If you see this message again – grant the Full Disk Access to the Terminal app.”
        Je ne sais pas quoi faire…

    1. still having issues with the red and white checkered mesh appearing all over the DLCs objects in CAS. I dont have any mods or cc installed, and have cleared cache in both origin and sims. and proceeded to redownload origin and sims as well.

  4. To anyone with Mac who had the origin update november 2022… it might be your mac updating, mine updated to the newer ventura, for some reason it changed the terminal access… you have to enable it again before downloading the dlc again!

  5. I think origin have blocked the dlc unlockers somehow, i can access purchased packs offline fine but the minute i add a new pack, do the unlocker etc, all packs become unavaliable. this has happened since the latest update

  6. To anyone else who’s packs were all gone today try this:
    Repair your Sims 4
    Delete/re-download Origin
    Re-download the unlocked like you usually do, and it should be all good (at least, it worked for me)!

    1. When you open your The Sims 4 Packs game folder, what do you see? I lost all of mine yesterday and have tried so many fixes with no success.

      When I open my The Sims 4 Packs folder I have all of the DLC files and I also have an “__Installer” file with all of the DLC..

      1. I see all my dlc (legal and these), the installer thing (also with all the dlc), and something called “sims4_moveDLC.log”

  7. Halo, which pages to get Sims 4 cracked games including DLC? Btw my laptop is Mac, legacy version, but with OS Catalina.

  8. for those whose game broke after the origin update, i’m using mac and i deleted and reinstalled origin and it worked when i granted the full disk access to the terminal app in the privacy settings. now i’m playing with all the DLCs! hope it helps!

    1. ive done this and it says i own the packs when i open sims but when i load into the game only the stuff from snowy escapes comes up no other pack what do i do?

      1. On the system settings of your mac (the apple logo in the top left corner), you scroll to Privacy & Security > Full Disk Access and you allow Terminal!

        That’s how i did it and it worked, but previously I deleted both the game and origin, redownloaded and reinstalled both and completed all the steps on this website!

  9. the origin update from today november 15th broke my game and i can’t use any of the packs… i repeated all the steps and nothing :/

    1. Same happened to me.
      I downloaded the EA app (I don’t know if it is already available for Mac), ran the Unlocker again, typed 5 to uninstall the Origin settings, then 1, 2, 14 and 5 again.
      Now it works fine with all DLC’s

      1. Its gutting isnt it! it doesnt even recognise the games i actually owned now and i have repeated all the steps 🙁

      1. i have done this multiple times because i think ive done some steps wrong so i deleted everything and ran the delete entitlements thing so when I do the steps and run the fix command it says its already fixed is this an issue?

      2. Hey I don’t mean to bother, it says I have the dlc but it wont show up in my game? I tried this 8 times pls help 🙁

  10. Anyone else having that problem where the loading screen gets stuck because the game is creating endless save files while loading a game?

  11. I managed to download everything but it bugs this game shows me red and white squares with question marks. do you know why ?

        1. hey jojo can you actually help me, my I’m pretty sure i did everything right, but my packs wont show up in the game.

          1. same I watched the video and followed everything and I turn my origin offline and when I go into the game and click “packs” it says I own them but I need to download them. I restarted Origin but it still doesn’t show up

  12. After I put the DLC in Sims 4 Packs, Origin says: ‘Well, that didn’t go as planned. Origin encountered an issue loading this page. Please try reloading it – if that doesn’t work, restart the client or try again later.’

    I tried reinstalling origin twice and deleted the cache folder as well as removing the DLC but nothing seems to work 🙁

  13. Hey Im trying to use the torrent with all packs but it won’t open for me. I extracted the iso and it still won’t open no matter how many times I launch it so I can’t see the folders with the dlcs in the iso. Anyone has some tutorials on how to do the all in one download or is it more reliable to do one by one?

    You can contact me on instagram @_.val.art._

  14. Im playing on Macbook, ive done all the steps and after i put the folder with all the DLCs on “game library location” its still not showing up on my game. Why?

    1. I’m having the SAME problem. they appear in my game as I have them, but I cannot play with the content. When I went to play, it looks like there is nothing there.

  15. Hello, thank you for the pirated DLCs! I have succeeded in installing expansion packs. However, I’m having issues with installing my downloaded custom contents. I have placed all the .package files to The Sims 4 Packs folder (as it has no Mods folder yet) and enabled the custom contents on the game options but the CCs still won’t show up (I’ve checked it by clicking the “View Custom Content” as well). Please let me know how to solve this problem:)

    1. You have to put mods in the mods folder not The Sims 4 Packs folder. To find it (if you’re on MAC) you go to documents in finder. Then click on the electronic arts folder and the mods folder should be in there.

    2. you need to put the cc onn another file, it should be called “Mods” and it’s set in a different folder (this is how it is on my mac: documents>Electronic arts>The Sims 4>Mods)

  16. When I go to the game it says I have all the packs but they don´t appear in the game and it says that I have to download them.
    Help please

    1. Have you made sure to:

      • Extract the folder from the .iso file and place it into ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder which is located in Applications? You can find it by doing: Shift + Command + H or using the ‘Search’ feature in the top right corner of Finder

      • Run “fix OriginClient.command” in the Origin DLC Unlocker folder?

      • Make your account offline via Origin? Go to: Account > Go Offline (at the top bar, where the Apple logo is found)

      If you have done all of these in order but still experience issues, try reinstalling the DLC Unlocker & Origin by following this tutorial: https://youtu.be/eTVK3FTaNQA (Timestamp: 2:15)

      1. @lamp Do they only work offline? I tested with a kit and the cas stuff worked offline but was gone when I went back online…

      2. the dlc is there in my game but its says i have to downloadand then i press connect and it says it cnt go online

      3. hi can you please help me install the 2 latest kits, they do not seem to work. I’ve also downloaded the previous children kit and it worked- but the 2 latest kits do not seem to work could you help me. I have followed every single step….

      4. when I open the DLC folder there’s nothing in it, but when i go to the actual game and hover over the packs, it says owned, but it also says ‘download in use”

  17. I havev a problem, I already did the steps a more than 50 times and still doesnt work, the only pack that shows up is a free one (I dont own it) but the others dont show up, im stuck. Can somebody help me?

    1. A lot of people still seem to be confused, and I was too, so I’m going to share what worked for me and hopefully it’ll work for one of you too.

      1. Follow the instructions of “STEP 1” for the DLC Unlocker and run all of the commands listed.
      2. Choose which DLC’s you want from https://sims.tarac.nl/direct-links-to-packs/ and extract the folder from the .iso file (e.g. EP01). You may or may not get a pop up saying that it can’t be opened. Right-click and press “Open” and then “Open” again.
      3. Locate where your “The Sims 4 Packs” folder is. For me, this is where problems arose. It didn’t show up when I used ‘Shift + Command + H’ nor did it work when I created my own file in that specific Applications folder. Here’s what worked for me:
      3a. In finder, click the search icon and search “The Sims 4 Packs”. A folder will pop up and if you look at the bottom it’ll read (for me at least) “Macintosh HD > Applications > The Sims 4 Packs”. That is where you want to place your DLC folders. That is the correct Applications folder.
      4. Drag your DLC folder(s) into “The Sims 4 Packs” folder
      5. RE-Download the DLC Unlocker and run the “fix OriginClient.command” command
      6. Open Origin and go up into the menu bar and go: Account > Go Offline
      7. Open your Sims 4 game and you should see a pop up saying to enjoy the DLC you just downloaded, that is how you know that it has worked.

      In order to add new DLC’s to your game you must repeat steps 4 & 5. And every time you want to play your game with the DLC’s you installed you MUST repeat steps 6 & 7 (At least for me. I can’t play the DLC on online mode, none of the content shows up).

      Thank you to Lamp for helping me! I just tweaked their instructions until it worked for me. Here is their video if you still need help: https://youtu.be/eTVK3FTaNQA

  18. Hi, I’ve followed all the steps but my game has trouble running. I’ve tried variations of moving the downloaded dlcs in the sims 4 packs folder into my mods folder or the electronic arts folder. If its moved into the mods folder the game either doesn’t have the start button to play the game it looks glitched at the top. Or the dlcs do work but the characters are glitched along with the lots they only come up as businesses. If the dlcs are not in the mods folder they don’t work at all. Is this an issue anyone else has had?

    1. can anyone using Mac that has figured it out please message me, I am checking the forum multiple times a day and I am still stuck.

      my instagram is @sashadaniele_ or if you reply to this please let me know the best way to contact. I am close to just giving up

    2. You’re supposed to put the extracted DLC folder (e.g. SP35) from the downloaded .iso file into a folder named ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ which is located in Applications (not under favourites), it can be found by doing: Shift + Command + H

      1. Thank you, I realised the applications folder doesn’t have the sims 4 packs folder but can be found only through command, shift and H. I’m on Mac btw, however the dlcs are still not showing in game, I’ve tried starting it offline and online no change with the DLC Unlocker swell. not sure how to fix this

  19. do i need to download the iso files to be able to play? because in game it appears that i have all the expansion but i need to download them.

    1. Yes, you need to extract a folder out from the .iso file which is then placed into ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder located in Applications (not under favourites) which you can find doing: Shift + Command + H

  20. i’ve spent about an hour trying to get the game packs to work, ive followed all the steps. when i load sims 4 up in offline mode, it says i own all the packs but when i go to start a new game, none of the content is there. i’ve tried quitting origin and sims 4, redownloading the DLC unlocker but nothing seems to be working..
    please help
    reply here or dm me on instagram @violettbarker

  21. hi, i got a problem. I successfully downloaded the file and its alright but when it go the the map, it crushed and everything turns into question mark and my sims become red and white. Is there any way I could fix it? I removed all my mod and its still like this

    1. can someone please help, im stuck on downloading the packs and moving the file into sims pack 4 can someone zoom or ft me so they can see what im doing wrong please!!! I’ve been trying to do this for 2 days

      instagram is @sashadaniele_

  22. i need some help, i did all the steps as told but i dont have any of the actual content from the dlcs in my game, at the main page it says that i own everything but I dont actually have anything in my game ??

  23. For those who are struggling to add DLC’s to their game, here’s an easier way of understanding:

    Any issues or problems? Reply to this comment. 🙂

    1. DUDE, THANK YOU!! it’s finally working omg😭 i cannot not thank yall enough for helping, this was stressing me out so much thx u once again

        1. i am in the process of trying that now. does the dlc unlocker need to go into the sims 4 packs folder or can it just stay on my desktop?

          1. the dlc unlocker is basically just an installer/updater for ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder so id recommend keeping it on the desktop as it’ll help for doing step 5 if you decide to add more DLC’s in the future

    2. I have no idea if you will be able to help me with this, but I downloaded to all in one version because the individual versions were taking hours to download. I ran all the commands and all the DLC is showing I own everything, but when I go into create a sim there is no content. At the beginning of my game it said “Pack download in progress” – Your uninstalled packs are downloading now. You will receive a notification once the download is complete. Does this mean I did it right or no? Another thing I was to mention is the download didn’t come in an ISO format, it was like a PDF file.

      1. For the all-in-one, i’ll be trying out how that method works, as i am using direct downloads so it must be different,

        the “Pack download in progress” should be correct but it happens even without any DLC folders being in ‘The Sims 4 Packs’

        and your .iso file being a .pdf file seems to be an issue as .iso files are like zip files where youre supposed to drag out a folder whereas .pdf is like a word document so ill be seeing if that happens for me as well.

    3. Hi I tried that, but it says I own the packs it just does not work of rme at all? do you know why maybe? or how I could fix it? sorry and thank you!

      1. have you done step 6? thats usually what your supposed to do during that stage when the game says you own all the packs (even when you dont)

        1. Hi yes I did the 6th steps I even restarted from step 1 and tried, but I don’t know what I am doing wrong?

    4. okay so i got all the dlcs (from just downloading ONE dlc that is called EP01S something like that) and its telling me to ‘download to use’ how do i fix that?

        1. Hi, I’m having the same “Download to use problem.” this problem is happening in the game and I’m guessing ‘s why it’s not working. When I play the game, non of the DLC’s show but it says I own them and I even get the exclusive stuff from them. Do you know how to fix it?

        2. okay so i got all the dlcs (from just downloading ONE dlc that is called EP01S something like that) and its telling me to ‘download to use’ how do i fix that?

          the game, i have been receiving it from the game

    5. Hi! I downloaded just 1 DLC and did the exact instructions but when I opened Sims, it says that I owned all packs and that I will get a notification once everything is done loading but I dont see any place on Sims or on Origin where I can see the downloading DLCs 😭 is this normal ?

        1. Yes I have! This happened the first time I downloaded the DLC’s and everything. I thought I did something wrong the first time so I deleted it and tried again but it still doesn’t work.

        2. Sorry it’s not letting me reply to your replying so I’m replying to this one. I open it via Origin.

        3. Hi, can you explain what you mean by restarting origin? Do you mean quit the app and open it again or something else? And I sent a screenshot, if it doesn’t show, basically say you hover over a DLC. When you hover over it , it shows a little bit about the DLC and the name and underneath the title, it says “Download to use.”

    6. bonjour j’ai également un souci avec les dlc tout a bien été ajouter ça me marque bien que c’est ok mais je ne les trouves pas dans les packs cela me dit que je n’est aucun pack dans le jeu ..

      j’espere que vous pourriez m’aidez merci.

    7. I have downloaded and done everything as said (not downloading all of the individual dlcs but one)
      when I go ingame it says I have the packs, but they aren’t loading

    8. I just wanted to say TYSM Ive been trying to do this for the last 2 days and finally your instructions worked

    9. i’ve spent about an hour trying to get the game packs to work, ive followed all the steps. when i load sims 4 up in offline mode, it says i own all the packs but when i go to start a new game, none of the content is there. i’ve tried quitting origin and sims 4, redownloading the DLC unlocker but nothing seems to be working..
      please help
      reply here or dm me on instagram @violettbarker

    10. i’ve spent about an hour trying to get the game packs to work, ive followed all the steps. when i load sims 4 up in offline mode, it says i own all the packs but when i go to start a new game, none of the content is there. i’ve tried quitting origin and sims 4, redownloading the DLC unlocker but nothing seems to be working..
      please help

    11. idk why I can’t figure it out, I can’t figure out how to go online in the game and I can’t figure out how to move the individual packs into the files, once I do nothing changes.

      can you please dm me to help me? @sashadaniele_ on instagram? 🙁

    12. hii when I double click the .iso file nothing opens? should I not open it and just drag what I have to the sims 4 packs folder instead

    13. Hi, I’ve followed all the steps but my game has trouble running. I’ve tried variations of moving the downloaded dlcs in the sims 4 packs folder into my mods folder or the electronic arts folder. If its moved into the mods folder the game either doesn’t have the start button to play the game it looks glitched at the top. Or the dlcs do work but the characters are glitched along with the lots they only come up as businesses. If the dlcs are not in the mods folder they don’t work at all. Is this an issue anyone else has had?

    14. okay i downloaded the DLCs and everything is working okay but some of the DLCs like GP12 doesn’t show up in game at all, does anyone know the problem?

      1. Hi, the pack itself works, perhaps you may have forgotten to:

        • Make yourself offline: Account > Go Offline (via Origin)
        • Run: “fix OriginClient.command” (via DLC Unlocker folder)
        • Placed ‘GP12’ into the wrong folder, correct folder: ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ located in Applications (do Shift + Command + H to find it), not the folder located under your favourites tab

        If you have done all of these and still run into problems, please let me know and provide screenshots using Imgur (https://imgur.com/upload) of where the issue may be.

        1. yeah i did what you said and nothing is still showing up, i downloaded strangerville along with a few other packs but that’s the only one what showed uphttps://imgur.com/a/CJjjXMd

    15. When I go to the game it says I have all the packs but they don´t appear in the game and it says that I have to download them.
      Help please

    16. Hello! I did everything as you said a lot of times and when I open the game it says that I have them but that I need to download them.
      Help me please

    17. whenever i open origin, go offline, open the sims. all the packs are there, however it says the packs need to download, and i need to be online for there? but if i do that. the packs are gone.

    18. Hey I have followed all the steps but i want to put the DLCs on an external drive because of storage issues. Is that possible? I have tried to do it and when i open sims 4 it says i have all the packs but when i play the game none of the features show up. Could you help?

    19. The downloaded DLCs work fine in my game however the ones I purchased through origin no longer work, they say they aren’t downloaded but I haven’t touched these files

    20. I followed all the instructions but its still wont work. When I open the game I can see that I own all the packs but that they’re uninstalled (even though I only tried downloading Island Living and Cottage Living).
      Even the packs that I own (bought from Origin) were uninstalled.
      Please help!

    21. Hi, so I’ve downloaded the 2 latest kits but when I open the game it says “download to use”. But I’ve completed all the steps above. And when I try adding the children clothes’ kit it worked? Could there be an issue with the unlocker? Perhaps it’s not updated as these kits are fairly new?

    22. Since origin updated today nothing works, I’ve followed all the steps, i have a mac, even the games I bought before the dlcs dont work anymore

    23. Hi! I tried using the steps and the video but it’s still not working for me. When I open the Sims now it says that all of the packs are unavailable for purchase. I’ve reinstalled the sims 4 and made sure everything is updated, so I’m not sure what’s up.

    24. after the new macOS update the game doesn’t show the dlc anymore. I re did all the steps and downloaded origin and the dlc unlocker again but nothing helps!

    25. thank you SO much for this. i’ve gotten it to work. my problem is that, i’m assuming since i’m playing offline, it won’t let me save my progress. i tried going back online in origin before starting a new game and am sure to save before exiting, but it still doesn’t show up when i relaunch the game. Any idea on how to solve this? thanks in advance!

    26. Hello,

      I’ve been trying to troubleshoot this problem for two days now.

      Basically, I tried to follow all the steps. When I get to the add fake entitlements command, the terminal action still sees Origin as running despite having quit it.

      I checked the Activity Monitor and everything to make sure it was successfully quit. I even turned off the background activity to no avail.

      This is the only problem I’ve encountered.

      I look forward to your response. Thank you for all your hard work and help!

  24. ok i get it but still nothing is showing up, i reinstalled origin and the dlc unlocker for mac and then everything again, do i put the DLC unlocker folder and the DLC folders together into the DLC folder in Installer of the sims 4 packs folder? or just put everything out??

    1. you have to put all of it into the legit sims 4 packs folder, im not sure why a lot of people are having problems.. but I believe that’s why! once you put the cracked dlc into the folder along with the torrent for the dlc + the Unlocker and u do the steps it should work. if you’re still having issues that’s super frustrating and I totally get it (I was so upset when I couldn’t get it lol), just let me know and ill try to help u in the best way I can. I wish I could include screenshots 🙁

      1. yeahh im still having problems, ima need the screenshots😭 i put the dlc folders and the unlocker into the packs folder and did the steps of the unlocker idk whats going on

  25. so i followed the steps but nothing shows up?? and i cant go online in sims 4 because i have legacy edition so online access is disabled, i repaired the game in origin and redownloaded the DLC unlocker but nothing shows up in the game so idk if im doing it right or am i supposed to download the DLCs and put them somethere

    1. you are supposed to put them somewhere, basically you need to find the legal files for your base game and there should be a file somewhere that says ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ and you have to put the dlc Unlocker/installer into that with all the dlc. I was having the same problem but once I put them into that folder everything worked. hopefully this helps!

      1. oh and also you have to open them until they’re a blue folder. I found a screenshot of how this is supposed to look from the creator but idk where it is anymore, if you’re still having issues ill search for it (im on Mac btw idk how it is for windows)

      2. i have already put the dlc on The Sims 4 Packs but it’s still not working, so i suppose to do. Plz help!!

      3. so my DLC folder is in the _installer folder which is in the sims 4 packs folder. am I just supposed to move the DLC folder out of the _installer and into ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder WITH the dlc unlocker, or what? btw my problem is that it says “download in use” when i hover over the packs in game. also is there supposed to be anything in the DLC folder cause when I open it there’s nothing in there

    2. Could someone please make a video toturial pls lmao I’m struggling my file says it can’t be opened because it’s from an unidentified developed and honestly I’m struggling on what to do

  26. doesn’t work. it says i own the packs but won’t show up in the game. i followed everything multiple times…

    1. for me it was working completely fine until yesterday, now I cant even open the sims 4 because it says that the game is damaged. I’ve tried repairing it and I might just have to delete it entirely and try to reinstall.

        1. yes, after I deleted everything lolol. I had to reinstall the dlc and everything works good! I think it was just a mistake on my end, maybe I moved something into a file and that caused it to break.

    2. this happened to me too 🙁 i did everything as it said but when i open the game it says i have all the packs, even though i just installed cats e dogs, and its just basegame.
      pls help

  27. I have literally no idea how this is working for everyone else? I have copied the instructions *exactly* several different times in between uninstalling/reinstalling origin and restarting my laptop. All the EP folders are always placed in the correct location. However, I have yet to even get any pop-ups confirming that I have received the DLCs when I reopen Origin again in the last step. Any thoughts? Something I’m missing?

    1. So I’m having an issue with the fix OriginClient.command, or so I think. Everytime i open it, it says “No Origin installation found, make sure it’s in your Applications folder.”. Before it used to say there was a duplicate and it failed so i tried deleting one, but ever since then its been saying the same thing, even though i’ve deleted and reinstalled both origin and the Origin DLC unlocker several times. So whenever i do the steps and i go on sims, the pacts arent there

  28. I successfully downloaded it and my game says I have all the packs but then when I go to actually play the game none of the packs actually work. Like when playing I just have the basegame.

  29. Hey, I just downloaded the game with all DLCs but when I enter the game all of the option buttons on the main page are stuck at the top. Is this a glitch?

  30. After doing all the steps all the dlc packs keep getting deleted from the content folder maybe its cause this time I run fake commandments twice to make sure it worked.

  31. Did anyone else’s DLCs just stop working? Everything worked great for months, and the game suddenly won’t recognize them. Like even DLC I own won’t work when I’m offline (required for the DLC unlocker to work). Has anyone else have/had this issue? Is it due to the High School Years bugs or??

  32. Ive downloaded the DLCs and they showed up as white checkered errors.
    Ive removed cc, reinstalled the dlcs, ran the 2 commands several times nothing fixes them.
    Please help

  33. does anyone know if this clashes with mods? i have ww installed and ever since i downloaded the dlcs, my ww mod won’t work. idk if its a problem with wicked whims or with the dlcs lol

    1. Shouldn’t clash with mods! I’m using plenty of mods with this and haven’t encountered any issues.

  34. Thank you so much! So happy this exists. I am encountering one minor issue though – all the scenarios are gone! Everything else is working flawlessly. Not too big a deal if I can’t get this working, just odd to me that I can’t get them to appear. I tried running the deleteentitlements command, reinstalling origin, and redoing the commands but that didn’t fix anything. Super odd!

  35. hey recently i tried downloading the sims 4 expansions just like you explained on this site but unfortunately it didn’t work. That’s not the problem tho. Since I did this I can no longer change the colors of anything that is in “create a sim”. So I can no longer change hair color, clothes color, eye color etc… What can I do to fix it?

  36. Hi! I’m having an issue with Werewolves and High School Years which is saying that it needs to be downloaded to use. I have the packs in my game folder and have run the origin client a few times. Is this happening to anyone else and does anyone have a solution? Thanks

    1. You have to actually download the cracked EPS, SPS and ETC and on mac you have to mount it, its around 3 GB each but the Utorrent is 50+ GB for everything. After you mount the download theres going to be a disk file called the EP(number) or SP and click on it and in your finder hold the alt key and hit “Go” on the toolbar at the top and keep holding it and click library and then search for sims 4 packs and drop the SP/EP or whatever you downloaded into there and follow the instructions to start the game how anadius instructed and the downloaded DLC should show up! I had the same issue and I just found out this is how you fix it.

    2. Check the packs you added to see if the contents are there, Maybe try to repair the game on origin or maybe you put the packs in the wrong folder then try to reinstall the 2 DLCs and see if that works!

    3. same, i can’t visit moonwood mill, every time i try to open the world it just won’t load but everything else works with the werewolves pack idk why

  37. ı did all the steps and now it says ı own all the packs but when ı start a game they don’t show up?

  38. I’ve done every step, now multiple times, but i cannot get the DLCs to work. This is a new macbook, and a fresh install. Literally the first thing i’m trying to do with it. The fix origin seems to work, but add fake entitlements…i’m not sure? It checks if origin is running, and once it isn’t it says
    “Success! No Origin.app processes found.
    0. SimCity
    1. The Sims 3
    2. The Sims 4

    Choose config number: [C”

    …am i missing a step? Do i need to type something here?

    Pls help, I’m turning 30 tomorrow and the sims is the only thing keeping me from having an existential crisis.

  39. I’m having the same issue with the checker prints as well but I don’t have any mods installed.The problem it seems for me (the issue I’m having)only seems to be with the Get To Work Expansion pack (maybe its not only that one but the other packs to me seem to be working fine with no error code) but when I go into build mode some items have a red x on it and the item is from the Get To Work pack.Anyone has any solutions?

  40. Hi! So since I downloaded this I cant get into my game 🙁 Sometimes i can get in but when i try to load a save it doesn’t let me and it’s just on the loading screen. Can someone pls help me? What should I do?

    1. Yes, it is confirmed by Electronic Arts that for some players the saves disappear since the last update (1.90.357.1020).
      They are working on it now, and they hope that a new version 1.91.186.1030 will cure this problem. This new update is expected on 30th August 2022.

  41. when i open the game it says it still needs to be downloaded, what can i do about this? i tried looking for the pack files in my finder to put them in the packs folder but i cant find them
    help?

  42. When I open the game it says I own all of the packs, but in gameplay it still has the other worlds locked and all of the CAS and build mode items are not there. I have the newest origin DLC unlocker downloaded, I do not have the origin DLC unlocker folder in another folder because I don’t believe it said to put it anywhere even though I thought I’d be putting it in my legal base game “The Sims 4” folder. I have all of the packs in my content folder, but I read in the comments on here to not put them into your “The Sims 4 Stuff Packs” folder. I am just wondering what I’m doing wrong, I’ve been at this for 16 hours straight lmaooo

    1. This is exactly what I’m struggling with! It says I own the pack but I still need to download it and it won’t work from origin. Please help a sister out

  43. Can someone please explain the 6th step in the 1th step which is “add fake entitlements.command.” thing. It says do what it says buy I have no idea what the hell it is.

  44. Went to go play sims today, and it’s saying none of the packs are there, this is the first time I’ve gotten this “error” ever since pirating the game a few months ago. I haven’t played in a few days after installing the new un locker and adding high school years which worked fine after installing it. Is anybody else having this issue? should I just delete everything and reinstall it all over again with the new Unlocker?

    also, I’ve already restarted my MacBook and I always follow the steps of making sure origin is not running and going offline.

    1. Hello! I had the same issue, all I did was redo the steps 5 and 6 and when I opened it all packs were back. You don’t have to delete everything, just make sure your unlocker is the latest one and I think it will work fine.

    2. so I’ve figured out that my issue is my mac book when I go to open origin it says it needs a helper tool and then once I go and open my sims game all my packs are gone. how should I go about this?

      1. when I start the game it says download to use for all the DLC and I done all the steps and turned off my wifi and back on when I started the game and I can’t enable my origin in-game overlay, Tarac please help!

        1. So this is what I do to make it works. Hope it will help people who struggle like me when the game says ‘Download to use’ for all the dlc but you cannot play no matter how many times you open and close the game.

          1. Delete all ‘Origin DLC unlocker’ folders you have
          2. Move all your DLC folders out from The Sims 4 Packs if you have any
          3. Download Origin DLC unlocker v1 again. Start Step 1
          4. Put DLC folders back into The Sims 4 Packs

          How to start your game every time:
          0. Exit Origin if it’s running.
          1. Start Origin (make sure your wifi is on)
          2. Select Account>Go Offline (on the top left of your screen) you don’t have to turn wifi off.
          3. Start the sims 4. The game should show you owned all the DLC at this point. If not, exit the game and origin. Start again.
          4. Try going online, you can do it from Origin in-game overlay (Control+1) or I just simply go to the gallery and click connect. If that removes the DLCs repeat the process and stay offline.

          It’s better to download DLC separately to save up your storage. I find it easier to download from anadius website as all the file is .zip. And I don’t know how to deal with .iso file. Where I download: https://anadius.hermietkreeft.site/sims-4-dlc-only

          Try downloading 1 or 2 DLC first. Put it in ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder. Run the DLC unlocker to see if the game works. I download an all-together 32Gb file and then so struggle later with storage shortage and slow computer.

    1. nevermind, everything works perfectly fine 🙂 for all the people downloading whole pack of dlcs – high school is not included yet, you need to download separately

  45. i tried to download everything that it said i even went back and change my packs but when i put it under mods it doesnt work or when i did it under the sims 4 pack folder it still didnt work idk if im doing it wrong or not but everything i enter the game it doesnt say i own it im a mac user so i dont know thw problem

    ( i have the updater , the orgin dlc unlocker )

  46. i downloaded the new unlocker and followed all the steps and it still says the dlcs need to be downloaded to use. i don’t know what the issue is but i’m assuming that the dlc’s isn’t in the correct spot in my computer? i have it under the sims 4 packs folder…

    1. Yeah same it says download to use and I can’t enable my origin in-game overlay, Tarac please help!

  47. i followed all the steps and it still won’t work for me. the dlcs don’t show up in my game at all. can someone please help? I’m really confused I don’t know what I’m doing wrong

  48. I’m having issues with the high school years pack, I’m following every step, and it’s weird because all my other dlc packs are working but the newest dlc isn’t.

      1. so we have to download the Unlocker V2 and not the V1 because it does not include the High School DLC?

        1. Mac Users need the V1 download.
          High School was added to V1 on 28th July, so re-download the V1 version and follow the steps.

  49. i still can’t get it to work :/ when i start the game it says i need to download the packs to make them work?? does anyone know what i can do? i don’t know if i put the packs in the right spot i think they are but i can’t tell.

  50. i’m not able to get it to work :/
    i did everything i *think* correctly but when i start the game it says the packs need to be downloaded to use. i don’t know what the issue is.

  51. having the same issues as everybody else, tired to play the new High School DLC but it won’t show in the game

  52. currently having an issue! trying to play the new dlc and am following the instructions, but when I do the “add fake entitlements.command” i get stuck in a loop telling me that my origin app is still open, even though its not and i followed the instructions.

  53. im having an issue with the High School Days pack not showing up in game despite me doing all of the steps. im on a mac, if theres anyway someone can help!

    1. Having the same issue — idk if it’s us screwing up with the install or if it’s a legit bug lol

    2. @peter for me the same, ik heb het nog een keer gedowload en alle andere packs pakt die behalve die sims 4 highschool…

      hulp zou aardig zijn en nog bedankt voor de top service hier.
      heb het gewoon bij all dlcs erbij gepakt maar hij neemt hem niet.

  54. MAC USERS: hey for anyone having trouble with the packs being owned but not able to download when offline mode in the sims game: I realized I had the disks version and not the folder version free floating in the content folder. The folder versions of the DLC are inside the delta folder so just transfer those folders that are in the delta folder in the same content folder. It should work then.

    I also used anonymous December 5 to help with instructions…now I am stuck with the problem of my sims being checkered print going to try to solve that unless someone already found a solution?

    1. Hey I did all this, it finally worked after how long of trying, but I am going through the same thing with the checkered print whenever adding hair or clothes to my sim.

      ON TOP of that it is not letting me load a game I don’t know where I’m going wrong, it says once I pick a house : “The game failed to load error code: 135:bb8175610:f808822f. It is recommended that you relaunch the game.”

      so now I’m stuck lol, I thought I finally did it

      1. I was also able to load the DLCs with Miranda’s suggestions but I’m encountering the same problems with the checkered sims. There’s a lot of llamas on the maps and i get the error code when I try to move into a house as well. It seems like a lot of the clothes are broken and the game is kind of unplayable 🙁 I hope someone figures this out

        1. Same here, llamas on the maps, un-able to do actual game play, red and white checkered broken clothes and hair.

          1. I don’t think it’s a mod problem, I know it isn’t for me, because I put all my mods in a separate folder on my desktop, not in the sims 4 mods folder, just incase they got deleted with this process.

            when I press on ORIGINAL sims hair, or anything in general. The sims turns red and white with a checkered effect.

            plus the game will not load it says ““The game failed to load error code: 135:bb8175610:f808822f. It is recommended that you relaunch the game.”

      2. I was getting the same error code and the checkered print as well, but I was finally able to get it

        I just want to preface I do have mods installed, (I have ww, basemental, and nisa mods)

        I was able to get it to work even with my mods so it’s not a mods problem if you have those specific mods and are worried about that

        I realized I was doing the steps wrong.

        this is what I did: I installed the DLC’s but I didn’t move them into my sims content folder right away. I first made sure to run the fix command then the other command it asks for, follow the steps. THEN when I was done with that I placed the DLCS in the content folder, ran the command fix again. I opened my game and all of the packs were downloaded no checkered prints

        i think where I messed up at was putting the DLC’s in the folder before I could hit the commands

        Hope this helps

        1. Don’t mess with any of the folders leave everything as is except put the DLCs in the content folder. You will be taking the DLC files out of the Delta folder

    2. I’m having the same issue with the checkered texture! If you figure it out please let me know, I’ve been trying too aswell

  55. Can using this unlocker tool get your origin account banned or anything?

    I am setting it up for mac as we speak.

  56. I was able to download what I wanted correctly but going into the game I realized that all of my cc had been deleted from my actual game and folder from my computer and my desktop. theres literally no way for me to get these back. what happened, I thought this wasn’t going to mess with anything, it also messed up everything from my gallery and what had already been saved in my online game.

  57. i installed everything as described and ran the game (quit origin, start online, go offline then start the game). it said one of my files was corrupted with the error code [bdbb60ea:29f00e76:00000000:4b0d852b]

    to fix the error i moved the folder “The Sims 4 Packs” to my desktop, and now when i run the game it says my packs need to be downloaded and to go online. when i go online, the packs delete/aren’t enabled since it creates a new The Sims 4 Packs folder. i’m not sure what i’m doing wrong.

    for reference, i have enabled incoming connections through my firewall, ran origin fixer, fixed the game through origin, and repeat step 5 every time i add the DLCs

    TIA :^)

  58. after i’ve downloaded all the dlcs, in the game under “My Packs”, it shows that i own all of it, but when i actually go and play, nothing appears (the new worlds, household items, traits, etc.). could it do with the fact that the .iso is not in a folder format or have i just done something else wrong?

  59. Would anyone be able to help me? I’ve downloaded the DLC’s i need (I’m on Mac) and followed all the steps exactly. CAS seems to work fine if I start a new game however if i try to load in a game or place a sim in a new game every time I click on a lot it takes me straight back to the worlds menu. I’ve tried resetting the game, origin, and re-downloading the iso files and it doesn’t seem to work. I can’t get past the worlds menu and actually play the game.

  60. I’ve done everything and got the dlcs to work- but my sims can’t interact with one another at all nor can I interact with NPCs, and I can’t seem to figure out why..

  61. Just download the iso file format (MAC) place it in The sims4 Packs folder do step 1 and it should work… no need to uninstall or do those useless steps (if u dont find sims4packs – Go to Finder and type The sims 4 packs in the search bar it should show up !)

  62. To find this out while your game is open right click on the sims icon in your dock and select show in finder that is where you want to install your game files in “The sims 4 packs”
    1. run the delete entitlements command
    2. Uninstall Origin. Shut down computer. Restart computer
    3. Reinstall Origin. Sign back into origin let the game download or repair itself. Once thats done Quit Origin make sure its closed.
    4. run Fix Origin cmd
    5. Reopen origin again stay online open your game while game is open and your online Run the Add fake cmd follow the steps.
    6. Close the game and origin again.
    7. Then reopen origin when it opens go to the top left menu bar where is says accounts click that and select go off-line then open your game library and open the game.
    You should a screen welcoming you to all of the DLC’s

    1. so, i have a mac desktop and i’ve tried everyone’s suggestions and i’ve followed this step by step. this is the problem i’m running into.
      when i go to “my packs” in game, it says that i have all of the packs. but, when i go to each individual pack, it says that i need to download it in order to play with it. i’m not sure if im just dumb and missed a step or if im not able to actually play with the dlcs lmao

  63. Okay, I read half of the comments and am still unable to understand fully what I am doing to get this to work. Can someone explain step by step a simplified version? If that even makes sense.

    I have a MacBook Air (2018) if that makes a difference?

    1. So I got it to install but when I load game and am at main menu, a message pops up saying that I will receive a notif when they are done. However, when I go to press the x or OK, my cursor turns into the colorful rainbow one and won’t stop loading. Does anybody know why this is happening?

    2. if you are still having trouble, i highly recommend following Anonymous’s instructions from december 5th. their method was the only way i got it to work

  64. Let me be more clear in my process of what I did. I do this every time there is an update its probably not needed to do all of this I just done like messing around with stuff and I know that this will always work for me.before we do anything we need to make sure you have the correct file install location. To find this out while your game is open right click on the sims icon in your dock and select show in finder that is where you want to install your game files in “The sims 4 packs”

    First run the delete entitlements command then using Ccleaner or whatever you use to remove applications Uninstall Origin. restart computer. reinstall Origin. Sign back into origin let the game download or repair itself. Quit Origin make sure its closed. Then run Fix Origin cmd then reopen origin again stay online open your game while game is open and your online Run the Add fake cmd follow the steps. Close the game and origin again. Then reopen origin when it opens go to the top left menu bar where is says accounts click that and select go off-line then open your game library and open the game.

  65. MAC USERS
    if u have a mac download the ISO format only, it will only work with the iso one. once u had downloaded it click on the file then a folder will appear, then open a new finder window and search for The Sims 4 Packs. if u found it place the folder into the The Sims 4 Packs folder then do what STEP 1 says. It should work fine after this 🙂

    1. How do I go offline on origin? Search says there’s an origin tab, but mine doesn’t seem to have it

    2. Did exactly this for two packs and they work just fine. A weird issue that I’m experiencing is that out of the 3 other packs that I actually own, only one of them works. I own an EP, a GP, and there’s a free pack. Only my GP works. The other two show the dreaded red/white broken texture and I’m not able to go any further than placing a household onto a lot. Any idea what could be causing this? I didn’t think that any issues would arise with the packs that already existed. No mods or cc are downloaded.

  66. After following the directions as well as making sure my packs were in the Sims 4 Packs file, it does show that I own them however I’ve been having some other issues.

    I’ve only gone as far as CAS and the majority of the DLC clothing does not appear or is broken (red/white checkered). Pets don’t show up at all, sometimes the sims look shiny? Currently have no mods installed that could be causing this issue so it’s definitely something else. I’ve noticed other commenters have the same issue but I have yet to see any fixes for this.

    Any ideas or solutions?

  67. I posted this comment a while ago hopefully this helps the new comers

    I have a mac and some problems I ran into were:
    1. I didn’t have origin offline.
    2. Make sure you start the game in origin, but before you are able to play make sure you exit origin if it is running, then run the “fix OrginClient.command” open origin, then go offline and run the “add fake entitlements command.
    3. The ISO download format is the only thing that works for me, so once you have then downloaded it, make sure the DLC folder (Ex:E02) is not in a game folder but just free-floating in the Sims 4 Packs folder.

    1. The “fix OrginClient.command” seems to work but “add fake entitlements command” does not seem to unlock the DLCs. they still show as ‘unowned’ from the game. I tried your method too but same result.

    2. Hi, I am trying to download the torrent now and add it to my game. So if I am understanding you correctly once I download the packs I add it to the DLC folder inside of the Sims 4 Packs folder. And then how do I get Origin to recognize that the content is downloaded? Do I need to add them to the Origin “My Game” section or just play the game?

  68. Guys The Files work fine you just need to run delete cmd and uninstall origin. Re-install, let the game download, close origin then run the FIX cmd. Then reopen origin while being online run FAKE cmd follow steps and your golden.

  69. after going through all of step one, i poked around in the files for the main game and found a folder titled “Delta” which contained all of the expansions. however, since this was in Applications>The Sims 4>Contents>Delta and NOT the Applications>The Sims 4 Packs, my game kept saying that i owned the packs but still had to download them. after copying all of the Delta folder files and pasting them into the Simes 4 Packs folder, this issue went away.

    i haven’t had the time to poke around in the game to check that everything works yet, but the character creator updated from the base game to having all the new options and i got all the opening welcome notifs from the new games upon starting the game.

  70. Hi,

    Just wanted to let you all know that it works fine for me with all expansion packs including the new Werewolves GP!

    Thanks Tarac!

    1. How did you make yours work?? Mine doesn’t work and keeps giving me critical error message(my game and packs are all pirated) my internet connection is good and my firewall and anti virus are also turned off, I never had this problem before,so please I need help

      1. if you’re having trouble with your game saying that some dlc isn’t downloaded, try anonymous’s solution from december 5th. it worked perfectly for me after hours of trying different things and i’m so relieved after all this frustration

  71. Hey! Anyone know if this works with a Macbook pro 2019? Ive been trying to download this and it does not work 🙁

  72. Hi there, I’m back with an update! I made a backup sims folder (with all my mods and stuff) and redownloaded the sims. This time, I made sure not to add anything to the new sims 4 folder, I just kept it as it is. I followed each step carefully but I was faced with the same issue. I can’t customize my sims because of the question marks and cas breaking. Again, i just created a sim and moved onto moving the sim into a house. Most houses were replaced with llama icons and had no labels or descriptions on them. I picked a house that was normal and wasn’t completely broken. the loading screen went on for about 7 minutes and I was faced with the same crash report. Feedback and ways to fix this would be greatly appreciated! The DLCs are floating in the Sims 4 Packs folder and I’m using a mac

  73. Hey! When I open the Sims it says I own every pack but, it says download to play, how can I fix this? I use macbook to play Sims btw. Thankss!!

    1. Figured it out! Download the Iso files and put them in the The Sims 4 Packs folder and it should work!

    2. I’m having this same issue :/
      I’ve downloaded all the folders from the iso into my sims 4 game packs folder and deleted/redownloaded the origin unlocker v1 (bc i am running on mac) 5+ times. only certain dlc shows as owned and the others say ”download to use” (obviously lol). i also tried connecting once i was in the game (opened the gallery) but that didn’t help. I’ve been struggling with this all day lol any help would be appreciated

  74. hi, I downloaded the pack I wanted and why I’m playing my game my sims won’t answer my commands. is there a problem since I have mods, or did I just download too many game packs?

  75. please help, my packs only show when offline? I cannot figure out how to go online in the game. Can anyone tell me how to get my packs to show up while online?

  76. this worked for me. I had to reinstall my game and packs I already bought. Direct download the iso files and drag the folder into packs folder. run the fix orgin command. start orgin, go offline, start game

  77. After some trying it worked for me. Go trough all of step one, then download the ISO files. Open finder, go to your sims 4 folder (mine was in ‘documents’ and search for ‘packs’. Place the unpacked ISO folders in the packs folder and start the game as explained at the end of step one (so, start origin, go offline, start the game through the sims 4 icon on the launchpad, try to go online in the game.) I will be adding my mods to the game now, see if everything keeps working.

    1. I can’t figure out how to go online through the game, my packs only show up when I’m offline.

      1. Did you ever figure it out? I am having the same issue. Some packs say owned and others say download to use. The additional worlds aren’t available and a lot of content is checkered with question marks.

    2. omg this is the only comment that helped me. except after i added the iso files to the sims 4 packs, i did step one again and then followed the rest of the instructions and it worked!! also fyi you have to click on the iso thingy and THEN it opens the iso folder, that is what you put in the game.

  78. It keeps showing that I must update the game via origin but it already is, I’ve tried multiple different things and it will not work

    1. It looks like you have more than 1 installation folder for the Sims 4, 1 you have updated via Origin and 1 you are leading the DLC unlocker to.

  79. Hey! So it works, it says I own every pack and that is true. The problem is that when I go to cas, every item has a ton of question marks. And when I try and play with a household, it says an error code and wants me to relaunch the game. I do relaunch but it says the same thing so my game is basically unplayable as of now. Is there any way to fix this? The DLC folders are floating in the Sims 4 Packs folder and I’ve cleared my “documents>electronic arts>the sim 4” folder already. Any help is appreciated please and thank you

    1. You say: “I’ve cleared my “documents>electronic arts>the sims 4” folder already.”
      How did you do that ? The only correct way is to move (not copy) that folder to a different location on your computer.
      Then start your game again. No problems now ?, copy the folders Tray and Saves back from the different location on your computer to the newly created Documents\Electonic Arts\The Sims 4
      Again, start your game: still no problems ?
      Good luck sorting out which faulty mods/scripts are causing the errors.

      1. Yes! I did that haha I’m sorry I forgot to clarify 😅 Even though I moved the folder, it still does the same thing, even when I removed all my mods and custom content as a whole. I’ll look into it later and remove that folder again to see if it does anything. Btw for the crash report it says this “The method DecoratedTextButton is not implemented and “client info is not here”

        I think I will repeat the steps and check back when I am done. Thank you though! I’ll be sure to update

      2. if i downloaded the iso files a while ago, do I need to download them again in the future? or is it automatically updated? thank u in advance

      1. i downloaded the iso format of the dlcs then added it to The sims 4 packs folder, then did step 1 again and it worked !
        (if u can’t find it go to finder then write it in the search bar !!! and it will appear!!) hope it helps

        i followed this instruction too
        2. Make sure you start the game in origin, but before you are able to play make sure you exit origin if it is running, then run the “fix OrginClient.command” open origin, then go offline and run the “add fake entitlements command.
        3. The ISO download format is the only thing that works for me, so once you have then downloaded it, make sure the DLC folder (Ex:E02) is not in a game folder but just free-floating in the Sims 4 Packs folder.

        1. Yes! I added them to my The Sims 4 Packs folder and its still not working, I’m not the most tech-savvy so I’m not sure how to troubleshoot this.

      1. In game it says I own the packs, but even after I downloaded them individually it says “download to play”. I’ve tried every solution people have come up with and nothing has helped. I really just want this to work!!

  80. I followed all the steps- but when I go into sims it says all the DLC’s need to be dowloaded.

    1. I have a mac and some problems I ran into were:
      1. I didn’t have origin offline.
      2. Make sure you start the game in origin, but before you are able to play make sure you exit origin if it is running, then run the “fix OrginClient.command” open origin, then go offline and run the “add fake entitlements command.
      3. The ISO download format is the only thing that works for me, so once you have then downloaded it, make sure the DLC folder (Ex:E02) is not in a game folder but just free-floating in the Sims 4 Packs folder.

      I hope this helps!! 🙂

  81. Hey, thanks so much for all of this! Everything is running smoothly, except for some reason, when I try to shift click on my sims, the menu doesn’t show up. I tried doing it with just the base game with and without mods and it works, just not when I have the DLCs applied. Do you know why this may be the case? Thanks in advance!

  82. So is there any solution for this issue 🙁 when i do steps it says download to use when i go online …. it says i already have the package. but can’t play ughh mac user here please help someone

  83. okay i think im on the right track this time, theres one huge issue blocking me though. whenever i open the sims, it automatically opens origin to boot it up. how can i prevent this from happening? im on macbook with the legal base game btw! thank you ^^

    1. nevermind LOL i went in offline mode in origin but the dlcs dont show up. it doesnt even say i own them or anything, it still says that i have to buy them :”(

      1. were you ever able to fix this? if so, could you help because I’m having the same issue (btw thank you in advance)

    2. you cant open the application directly from origin, you have to open C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game-cracked\Bin and then click on TS4_x64 then you should be able to play the game with all the dlcs, hopefully that works for you, i have windows so I’m not sure if you’re able to do the same but this is how i got the dlcs to show up

  84. Hi there,

    First of all thank you for this, it works amazing on my mac and im forever grateful to have all the packs!

    I just have a quick question, I’ve followed all the above and some games are showing as ‘Already Owned’ and some are showing as ‘Download To Use’. They’re all in the same folder so im a little unsure of why this is happening.

    Is there any way that you can help? 🙂

    TIA

    1. Hey I’m a macbook user too, is it okay if I ask how you got them into the game? It is not working for me 🙁 Did you put them in a specific folder or something?

    2. when i open the game i have the same issue for me they all shown as download to use … dunno what to do … i’ve tried downloading unlocker for like 10 times still nothing 🙁

  85. Hello Tarac, thank you so much for your tutorial ! I did everything it said and when I start the game it indeed says that I own all the dlc’s and packs, however I cannot play them ? when I start a new game it just shows the city that I already own (base game and cats and dogs) do I have to wait for the packs to install themselves by letting the game open or idk ? Do I have to do something with the folders ? I’m kinda confused… thank you

  86. Hey Tarac please help
    i did everything it said the packs do show up but they all grey and it said i need to download it to play… i don’t know what to do now

  87. Hello Tarac, I had to run “delete entitlements.command” and redownload Origin, because my computer was overheating with all the DLC’s now I want to put only a few to prevent the same thing from happening, but it does not work I perform each step the same way from before and it does not work, can you help me? 🙁

  88. hello! i need some help with getting the packs into my game. i am sure i am doing something wrong. i have went through every instruction carefully, put my desired dlcs into the sims 4 folder inside contents (the folder you can access by right clicking the sims 4 app and going into packaging contents). i have reinstalled my game and the dlc unlocker several times, i go offline in origin, etc. i am just having an issue with getting my dlcs in, ive mounted the isos and everything, am i putting it them the right folder? im concerned on why they arent getting into the actual game. im on a macbook if that helps, thank you!

    1. Hi did you find a solution to this. I followed the steps and put the mount in my sims 4 folder but they do not show up in game

  89. Is er een manier om te weten of de DLC’s correct ontgrendeld zijn? Bij mij staat er nog altijd overal ‘Niet in bezit’ in de game, hoewel ik alle stappen gevolgd heb.

  90. since the last origin update a lot of cas items are showing the red-white texture with the question marks. i did the fix origin client and the rest but they dont go back to normal

      1. no they are item from ts4 pack that i downloaded through this website, i don’t understand how to fix them

  91. Hi, i do every step correctly I think, but then when I open the game (with origin offline) and then put the game online it only says that I already own the dlcs. but when I start to play there is none. what should I do?

    1. the same issue is happening to me! when i go offline it wont let me use any packs, even the ones that were legally installed before

  92. Je n’y arrive pas, déjà je n’ai pas besoin d’extraire le fichier ? est ce normal? ensuite je n’ai pas le message pour ignorer les messages windows et l’étape 6 m’amène sur un terminal ou on me dit que mon jeu est déjà corrigé

      1. je suis sur Mac et l’étape 6 ne fonctionne pas cela m’ouvre une fenêtre pour me dire que mon jeux est déjà “fixé”

  93. Hey Tarac, thanks for all the tutorials. I’ve tried every single steps on my mac, but it doesn’t works. I’m using The Sims 4 Legacy Edition, is that the problem?

  94. Wow this worked like a charm, thank you so much!!

    In STEP 3 (Add missing DLC’s) I struggled to find where my legal game packs are installed, so I thought I’d share what I found in case anyone else is having the same issue:

    The packs should be in:
    [Your home directory] > Applications > The Sims 4 Packs

    What the home directory is called will depend on what your user/computer is called. To find it, you can use the Finder – it should be in the left hand menu with a little house icon. Otherwise you can also open the finder and press command + shift + H to open the home directory 🙂

    NB there is also a The Sims 4 folder in Documents > Electronic Arts (this is where saves go), as well as multiple other folders/shortcuts called ‘Applications’ which makes this all a little trickier than necessary!

    1. OMG a really big big thank you to you Anna!!! Your instruction saves the whole thing and it should be added ! Tarac thank you so much for all your work, could you please put Anna’s comment into this ‘special for Mac’ page? Cuz this is sooo important as a majority of folks would have confuse the ‘Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4’ folder (where saves, troys, and mods stay) with the actual ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder, that all DLCs should be placed at. And the ‘The Sims 4 Packs’ folder is hidden for some reason but it does exit in Applications. God I wish I could attach screenshots in comments

  95. Can anyone with a Mac help me.I can’t extract the dlc Unlocker maybe that is why it isn’t working for me.

    1. To open (extract) a compressed item: Double-click the zip file.

      The extracted item will appear in the same folder as the .zip file. You can delete the .zip file if you wish.

      Note: If you can’t open the .zip file, make sure your Mac has enough space for the extracted item. If you received the .zip file from someone else, there may be a problem with the file. Ask the sender to repackage and send the file.

      1. I’ve tried to archive then unarchive the DLC Unlocker folder (simply because I can’t find an app to unzip it)follow the instructions but it still says I do not own the expansion packs.I’m honestly really frustrated at this point and disappointed.

        Note:I also compressed it and then unzip it and use that folder to follow the instructions and still nothing. Any Mac users would appreciate the help

  96. someone needs to do this for me, why can’t this be simple I don’t understand the steps or what any of it really means lmao it really do need to be dumbed down and way more steps

  97. Hi all,

    I DID get it to work, including the wedding stories pack and all kits. I you have trouble getting some kits to work, and not the wedding stories pack, your DLC unlocker is outdated. You would need to download the newest DLC unlocker (NOT v2 but V1) from the CS RIN forum. You can download it here:
    https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=104412

    In order to download the unlocker, you need to make an account and log in, only then can you see the attached file and download it. It is not the top one (that is V2) but you have to scroll a bit to the V1 version. After redownloading, I redid steps 4, 5, 6 of step 1, and now it’s working.

    Happy simming & Thanks Tarac and Anadius!

  98. hi , if I copy the folders of the DLC’s to my legal installation folder and try to start the game, all of the folders of the DLC’s will get deleted from my legal installation folder. Can you help me? Maybe post a video how to download it on a mac properly?

  99. what if I did everything right, I downloaded the torrent for all DLC and even deleted and redownloaded everything multiple time but it only downloaded one new expansion pack for me?

  100. I downloaded the new wedding dlc but it is not unlocked yet I redownloaded the dlc unlocker. Is there another place where I can download it? (the last 5 KITS are not unlocked either)

  101. hey! so ive used this before and it really worked,but out of a sudden,it stopped working.ive checked the folders,redownloaded origin dlc installer,but nothing works!! does anyone know why?
    *im on mac btw

  102. The YouTube tutorial got taken down on YouTube and I’m confused on where to put the sims 4 download. I don’t know where to put the download folder in my legal game. where?!

    1. On mac, right click the sims 4 app and slick show package contents (or something like that mine isn’t in English). There is just one folder named contents you just put them in that folder. They are not going to replace folders that were already there so dont search for same named folders

  103. Hello
    Where can I find the latest version of the dlc unlocker ?? because all the dlc are unlocked except the last ones

      1. I’ve already done it
        I downloaded it from the link in step 1
        Is there another place with a more recent version? Only the last 6 Kits are not unlocked

  104. Hello, sp 26 & 28 still won’t work for me, you said before that I need to use the latest dlc unlocker, do you have a link for this Tarac??

      1. when I re-download the unlocker (so I can get the newer kits + wedding game pack) I get no prompt to download a newer version. the rest of the packs work with unlocker in its current state though. what should I do?

  105. Any other ways to download the packs? I can’t seem to download it because there are no seeders. It takes up to weeks

  106. Hey. I followed instructions for downloading the dlc and it looks like it’s all unlocked on my game, but says I have to wait until they finish installing before I can use. When i click on a world it gives me that message then tries to open origin, I’m guessing to see my downloads. But they aren’t there, am I just being impatient and need to wait or how do I use the dlc?

      1. What happens to the user above is the same with mine, dlc’s are showing but it opens origin when I try the other worlds. I also keep on doing steps 4-6 just to make sure but it just doesn’t work. Can you help us out?

        1. According to the readme file in the folder of the Origin DLC Unlocker:
          [quote]

          From now on every time you want to play the game:
          0. Exit Origin if it’s running.
          1. Start Origin (you MUST be online).
          2. Select Origin > Go Offline.
          3. Start the game.
          4. Try going online, you can do it from Origin in-game overlay. If that removes the DLCs repeat the process and stay offline.
          5. Enjoy your game!
          [\quote]

        2. hey i found someone’s comment that fixed this issue (i copied and pasted below)

          1. Open the game and right click TS4 icon in the dock > option > show in finder and it will direct you to the app location.
          2. After that just right click the TS4 app in that folder > show package contents.
          3. From here all you have to do is just copy the EP/SP of the DLCs that you’ve downloaded from https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?p=930237#p930237/https://rentry.org/the-sims-4-dlc-only#google-drive and that’s it!

      2. Yes i followed all of the instructions and eventually just restarted the process and keep getting the same result; the worlds just say they need to be downloaded but not sure why

  107. hi, i would just like to say thank you so much!! it works!! however when I try to download the actual docs from your website it becomes a disk image. how I got it to work is because I actually have game packs from previous origin accounts. tysm 🙂 I’m eternally grateful

  108. Thank you so much for doing this! All the packs work perfectly except for the clothes when you get to create a sim, and I was wondering if you know of anything I can do to maybe fix this? All the clothes look like when custom content is broken (they have the question marks). I was thinking of just moving them to the mods folder to fix it quickly but I don’t want to break anything else.

  109. Hey, thank you so much for the work you do! I have been trying to download SP24-29 on my Mac but it doesn’t work. The game doesn’t recognise that they have been downloaded. Everything else works perfectly so I have to assume that something is wrong with those kits for Mac. Any advice?

    1. Things to remember:

      When Origin updates repeat step 4.
      When a game gets a new DLC re-download the Unlocker and repeat item 5 of step 1.
      When a game gets a new update you don’t have to do absolutely anything.

  110. so i got it all to work, did every step, and everything shows as owned (except for the last 5 kids which isn’t a big deal, i’ll figure that out later) but all of the content packs in-game say “download to use.” i left the game running for a good half hour, and nothing “downloaded or changed. since the game has to run offline for the packs to show, I’m not entirely sure what to do. any help is appreciated!

    1. Hi Lumie, I’m having the exact same problem. The packs are registered but it says download to use. Maybe the origin downloader is faulty(?). Any help would be appreciated

  111. I am willing to give out my phone number for HELP…. I can’t comprehend anything in these instructions. Ive downloaded the unlocker from cs.rin.ru but can’t find the wit Winwar to extract. TOTALLY CLUELESS PLEASE HELP.

    1. same! i think i’m miss a step cause i did everything but when i open my sims it’s like nothing changed and i have none of them.

  112. Can someone for the love of god make a video tutorial, half of this I dont even understand. I learn visually. Please please please make a video tutorial.

  113. I followed Anonymous’s instructions from December 5th 2022 and it worked perfectly!

    How do I go online and use the gallery though? The instructions are to open Origin, go offline, and then play Sims 4 directly from the application file. This is advertised as being able to use the gallery but requires you to be offline to run it?

    1. Hey! How’d you get the instructions to work? Followed every step correctly and it still wouldn’t work for me :(.

  114. I need some help please. When I run the fix OriginClient.command I get this every single time:

    xattr: [Errno 13] Permission denied: ‘/Applications/Origin.app/Contents/MacOS/OriginClient’
    Failed to fix your OriginClient. Report this problem with following message:
    Legit: cda28a8692cc85ed27f48405211e75b8, hashsum: cda28a8692cc85ed27f48405211e75b8, expected: f10b63dbef3652830087453943331bba
    mv: rename backup/OriginClient to /Applications/Origin.app/Contents/MacOS/OriginClient: Permission denied

    I don’t know what to do to fix this. I’m pretty sure this isn’t what’s supposed to pop up when running this in the terminal. If anyone could help me, that would be wonderful!

  115. Took me hours to figure it out but turned out it’s actually pretty simple once you know where to actually put those DLC files. Basically just follow all the steps mentioned and for the location in order to find the most accurate directory all you have to do is:

    1. Open the game and right click TS4 icon in the dock > option > show in finder and it will direct you to the app location.
    2. After that just right click the TS4 app in that folder > show package contents.
    3. From here all you have to do is just copy the EP/SP of the DLCs that you’ve downloaded from https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?p=930237#p930237/https://rentry.org/the-sims-4-dlc-only#google-drive and that’s it!

    Most importantly is to find the right directory to place the DLCs and the game should run perfectly.

  116. No DLCS show up after the process for me. I’ve left Orgin open offline and acessed the Sims through the application folder, but nothing at all. Not sure if I’m doing something wrong or not… been stuck on this.

  117. It works fully! As Tarra said, if you download the new DLC unlocker V1 from CS.RIN it works with all kits, including the newest menswear and blooming rooms kits. Thank you Tarra!! You have to make an account to be able to download the unlocker, and have to scroll down to find the correct file: “original DLC unlocker.zip”. After that, the steps can be followed as made by Tarac in “Step 1”.

    https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=104412

    Tarac, is it possible to update the file in this post to the new file from the CS.RIN forum?

  118. Here is a more detailed step process that worked for me! I ran into similar issues as the people commenting.

    1. If you already downloaded the DLC unlocker, delete it and empty trash
    2. Download DLC unlocker again.
    3. Follow Step 1 – make sure that in terminal you are clicking a random key to continue, as there are steps to follow below. For the first run, you don’t need to do anything except press a key to continue. For the second run you need to open origin, open the game, close it and quit origin. Then press a key to continue in the terminal at step 5. Enter the number 12 and hit enter. Then press a key again.
    4. Once you have downloaded the packs that you want (I did separately, just a few at first), unzip the downloaded file and double click each one. Then a folder will appear labeled EP03 etc. Next you want to put these in the content file of the app.
    5. Go to the search icon in the menu bar and search sims. Then go all the way to the bottom of the results and click open in finder. There you should see the sims 4 application directly (the white circle with green diamond). Right click The Sims 4.app and click “show package content”. This shows 1 folder: Content. Double click this folder. HERE is the folder with folders labeled “data” “delta” and “supprot”. Add the “EP03” folder here, so it should be inside the “Content” folder, next to the “delta” folder.
    6. Now do step 5 of the DLC unlocker again. Close the other terminal and reopen it newly.
    7. To start the game after step 5, you have to start origin, go offline, and keep origin open WHILE offline. Start the sims by double clicking “The Sims 4.app” in the applications folder. If you close Origin (offline or online) and then start The Sims 4.app, it will automatically open Origin, sign you in, and then it won’t work.

    THIS WORKED FOR ME! I had been trying for hours and hours, but it really helped to put it in the content folder.

    1. Hi Anon! Thank you so much for confirming this and explaining the extra steps! I had a quick question. My downloaded packs only worked while I was offline on origin. And then when I went back online, the packs disappeared and info came up about there being ‘missing content’. Does this mean I can only use the downloaded packs when I am offline?

      1. Hi @jojo, I’m not sure if I have tried playing online yet. It definitely works offline, but if you click gallery in game and go online that way did that not work?? I’m scared to try😅

        1. Hey @Anonymous ! I did try clicking ‘go online’ when opening the gallery, but it just said ‘unable to go online please check connection’ or something like that so it didnt work. I wonder if everyone else just plays offline to get their packs.

    2. I’m honestly not sure what it means to go offline other than disconnecting from wifi. But that’s what I did. I disconnected from my wifi, which doesn’t really let me get in the game, but I connect it right away, opened sims 4 and it seems the packs work for me while still being able to see and use the gallery. I still have yet to play a game using the packs, but the contents when creating a sims was all there

      1. Let me be more clear! If the DLC’s don’t work when you go online, try this!
        1. Start origin as usual, but turn off your wifi before doing so (also remember to do step 5 of step 1)
        2. Since being offline doesn’t let you go into the sims 4 through Origin, search in your computer for the sims 4 app, it will let you start the game as technically Origin is open
        3. Once you are in the game, turn on your wifi and you’ll be able to access the gallery while also having the DLC work!

  119. Hey Teddie, I’d gotten the same problem when I first unlock the dlc with the DLC unlocker from this website. And I found out the file named “The Sims 4.fake” on the unlocker zip file was created in July. It’s totally outdated. Then I searched google for the EA DLC Unlocker, found the original forum source about this unlocker. Then downloaded it, replace all the old unlocker files from this website with it. Then redid the unlocking process as before, then open the again. This time, all DLC was unlocked! It works!
    So, you can download the unlocker zip from it’s original website, I quoted it’s URL below:
    https://cs.rin.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=104412
    for MacOs, you need to download “Origin DLC Unlocker v1”
    for Windows, you can download both “Origin DLC Unlocker v2” or “Origin DLC Unlocker v1”

    1. Hi Tarra,

      Thaniks! It says “You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post”. I cannot download the file, an I doing something wrong?

  120. Hi, I can confirm it works! I was a windows-user and know what the folders should like like, and I now have all EPs and GPs on my macbook air with M1 chip (2020). Unfortunatly, I can also confirm that SP 24, 25, 26 and 29 do not work for me. It says unowned in the game. I did an install from “scratch” (did buy the game on origin, obviously), so I know I did do the install right for the most part, and the other kits do work. Just not those 4.

    I redownloaded the ISO files for SP24-29 again from a different source, remounted them, and readded them to the correct folder. I then redid step 5 of step 1 and still no better. Somehow the DLC unlocker doesn’t unlock SP24-29 for me, but I’m happy with the rest!

    A few tips that would have helped me:
    – you should “mount” the ISO files (just double click them), after which they pop up on your desktop. Double click the desktop icon to show a folder titled “EP03” or something like that, depending on the ISO you double-clicked. Copy that entire folder to the application
    – the Sims 4 application is in the “applications folder” (use search in Finder to find this). Right click The Sims 4.app and click “show package content”. This shows 1 folder: Content. Double click this folder. HERE is the folder with “data” “delta” and “supprot”. Add the “EP03” folder here, so it should be inside the “Content” folder, next to the “delta” folder.
    – Now do step 5 of the DLC unlocker
    – To start the game after step 5, you have to start origin, go offline, and keep origin open WHILE offline. Start the sims by double clicking “The Sims 4.app” in the applications folder. If you close Origin (offline or online) and thén start The Sims 4.app, it will automatically open Origin, sign you in, and then it won’t work.

    Side note:
    – In Mac, the game directory doesn’t actually have a “game” folder! It has a MacOS folder that wasn’t there on my Windows laptop. But to start the game, simply double click “The Sims 4.app” in the Applications folder.

    I hope this helps someone! And if anyone has tips to unlock SP24-29, I’d like to know! Maybe the link is to an outdated version of the DLC unlocker?

    Anyway, thank you Tarac!

    1. Thank you very much for this reply.
      One question – After you added the SP24-SP29 did you re-download the unlocker and performed step 5 ?
      According to Anadius you should re-download the unlocker and not just do step 5 after adding DLC’s.

      1. No problem, I saw some people were struggling, so thought I might help.

        To make sure, I just tried it again. I deleted everything from my downloads, and redownloaded the unlocker and the ISOs, basically following step 4 (add future DLC’s to your game). It still won’t work.

        To clarify, the first time I downloaded everything from “torrent for the packs”, and with those ISOs everything worked except SP24-29. I then downloaded SP24-29 specifically from the “direct download”, and just following the steps in step 4, but still no luck.

        I even copied SP24-29 from my old windows laptop, and pasted them in the right folder, did step 5 of step 1, and still couldn’t get it to work. On my old laptop SP24-29 did work, although that was the “normal” Anadius version so with a cracked base game and an installer and all that.

        Hope this helps.

          1. No, but to test I did do step 4 again just now, and nothing. Redid step 5 after that and still nothing!

    2. Salut je n’arrive pas a entrer le code dans le terminal, pour ajouter des faux droit.command sur le même Mac que toi tu peux m’aider?

  121. Is there any video tutorial available for this? I’m struggling to keep up with instructions and find files necessary.

    Thanks!!

    1. What doesn’t work in Blooming Rooms ? Could you be a bit more specific please.
      Did you update your legal game first ?
      Are you sure you downloaded the correct folder SP29, did you extract (.rar file) or mount it (.iso file) ?

      1. Yes I did everything like I did with all other packs… everything works except the blooming kit… i even tried to buy the blooming kit but it still doesn’t show up

  122. I did all the steps, it says that I own the pack but I need to download it. I redid step 4 and 5 already what now?

      1. I’ve put all of the DLC packs into the legal Sims 4 Packs file as instructed. No errors, however when I run the game, none of the packs are owned; they’re all “unowned”.

        I have redownloaded the unlocker multiple times, AND did step5 of step 1. multiple times.

        Any advice on what to do? They are all in my legal game directory too.

  123. hi there, just wanted a little help… I’ve completed the steps. game says i have the packs but none show up in the game except get famous. what have i done wrong please.

        1. Yes, DLC’s must be placed in the Sims 4 folder of your legal game where you also see folders like Install, Data, Delta, Game, Support

  124. Hi there, please could you help me? Everything was working just fine except SP24 – SP26, they still say unowned even though I already redownloaded and ran the unlocker, but that wasn’t really an issue. However, I just updated my game and now all the packs that were working fine are saying download to use?? Is there a way to fix this, could I have done something wrong somewhere? Please help if you can 🙁

    1. Have you download and extracted SP24 and SP26 and put these in the same directory where your other DLC’s are ?
      Did you Run “add fake entitlements.command” after adding SP24 and 26 ?

  125. A plain thank you isnt right With a slow internet I reformatted my SSD and added an extra space drive Downloaded origin and logged i to and downloaded the free base game I grabbed years ago when they were giving it away for free and set about using your very clear instructions to download every pack which took me almost two days Has worked perfectly ever since with my 15 GB of mods my tray folder and save file all working perfectly well Just added the new kits content and after two restarts All working perfectly well THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU You are the most amazing person on the Internet

  126. Downloaded and followed instructions. My game registers the DLCs on the start screen, however, I cannot access any of the content in the actual game.

    Any suggestions? I did not have a Mods folder in my Sims 4 folder, but I did put the DLCs directly into Sims 4.

      1. I tried as well and would love some more help with Step 1 and the different commands- especially the 4. step – the terminal always says there are “no configs found” is that correct?

  127. Yesterday I performed all the above-mentioned steps and was able to run the sims 4 and play. However, today I tried to open it again but couldn’t. There was an error that said: ”Unable to start: Initialization error at start up. [135dec40:3fbbecd0:00000064:00000000]”
    Maybe it has something to do with the new kit?
    I would really appreciate it if you could help me out.

  128. I’m not getting any of the content from the packs. I ran all the commands and followed the directions, but the content just isn’t in my game. I also made sure I put the file in the right folder.

      1. Also, when I click on “packs” on the main screen, it shows I own all the packs but I need to download them, which then takes me to origin that says I need to buy them.

  129. So.. i added the dlc’s to the sims 4 map.. and then i ran the fix origin.client.command and it told me to switch origin offline.. then i tried to open sims and i still couldn’t see the dlc downloaded.. when i tried to go online it shows the packs but it redirects me to origin to buy the packs..

      1. yes, and they still dont work. they say “unowned”

        I’ve ran the command multiple times and redownloaded the unlocker multiple times too. all folders are in the correct directory.

        1. Hi, if you are using mac you should first start origin then go on offline mode and then start the sims 4

  130. Adding the DLC will not work as the program you referred us to in earlier replies, is only able to be run on windows

  131. Hi, I’m currently using my Mac. I’ve gone through all the steps and everything has worked as planned, except for one thing. When I open the Sims 4, I can see that I have all the packs, they just aren’t downloaded. When I try to download any of the packs it takes me to Origin, more specifically the page to buy whichever pack I am trying to download. How do I fix this?

      1. hi! im experiencing this same problem on my mac but i cant adds the dlcs via the pack method because i cant run the .exe setup file , is there anyway around this?

        1. The actual DLC’s do not contain .exe files. Such folders like EP, FP, GP or SP can be used by Windows and Mac

          When you downloaded and extracted the unlocker you have .command files.
          When you add DLC folders run “add fake entitlements.command” again

          1. BTW, where did you encounter this setup.exe file.
            I can’t find any
            Please let me know as maybe I produced an incorrect link
