Sims 4 Installation folder

Where to find your installation folder for The Sims 4

Legal game

Cracked game

By default Origin installs in C:\Program Files(x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4

If your folder is not there:

  1. Open Origin
  2. Click left top on the word Origin
  3. Click on Application Settings
  4. Click on Installs & Saves
  5. In the window below Game library location you see the location of your installation folder

As I don’t use Steam, you could find your installation folder as described under cracked game

You can also download this small file, double click when the download is completed and you’ll see your legal installation folder.

When you don’t remember where you installed the cracked The Sims 4

  1. Right-click on the shortcut for the Sims 4
  2. Click on Open file location
  3. This will bring you to your installation folder The Sims 4-> Game -> Bin
  4. Now in the Window on top of your screen click on The Sims 4
    Example of my location. Yours will be quite different of course.


 6. You see folders like Install, Data, Delta, Game, Support + your installed DLC’s

  1. All the packs seemed great until I got to city living and discovering university, both of them appear like broken cc (can’t use anything from CAS, nothing in build-buy mode works, and the world in city living simply doesn’t work) could y’all repair/update it? I’ve downloaded it more than once to check if it’s working, but still nothing.

  2. i’ve literally done everything right and it says i own everything but when i go into CAS the stuff from the packs are all black and red with question marks and when i go onto worlds all the plots have that grey llama with wings thing?(ive removed all mods so its not that)

  3. I have the legit game and I followed all the instructions and was playing the game just fine but now when I open sims it says that I don’t own the dlcs. What should I do?

    1. Open the EA DLC Unlocker
      right-Click setup (as an administrator)
      Type 5 to uninstall the unlocker
      Then type 1, type 2, type 15 and type q

  4. Iv did everything correctly i believe.
    Downloaded everything followed all the steps.
    Downloaded & run the 6 files like said. I looked in the readme file to check over everything.
    But now when i open sims it doesnt show me the dlcs ive downloaded.
    Do i have to open the game in a different file or something for it to work?
    Any advice is appreciated

    1. Run the EA DLC Unlocker when you have a legal base game.
      The DLC’s should be in your installation folder of the Sims 4 (Where you also see folders like __Install, Data, Delta, Game a.o.)
      You start the game from your installation folder Game\Bin\TS4_x86

  5. Dwa dni temu instalowałem updater anadius i wszystko było ok, teraz usunąłem go przez przypadek na stałe, ale gdy chce pobrać go teraz to plik z nim ma trojana 🙁
