The Sims 4

Downloads for the Sims 4 and all DLC’s (multi-language) for free

The Sims 4 can be downloaded in 6 different ways:

  1. Official via Origin (Will be available for free from 18th October, see this page)
  2. via selective downloads (Anadius method) – for 64 bits Windows only
  3. via the all-in-one method also for 64 bits Windows only
  4. My favourite method (Anadius Updater) because it’s not a torrent, nor a direct download and extremely simple
  5. For 32-bits Windows you can download the Legacy Edition

  1. Hi, the all the packs I got were working super well until yesterday, all of a sudden Sims wants me to buy all the packs and the packs just disappear. It says, “You need to purchase 13 required packs. Get missing packs?” Is there a way to fix this?

  2. Greetings Tarac 🙂 Sorry for bothering, but whenever i try to open the game it says:
    The contents of your user data were created by a newer version of The Sims 4 and cannot be loaded. Please update your game via Origin to play.
    I do not have the original installed though. What should i do?

    1. Try to update your game.
      For the time being, deleting the file GameVersion in C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 will cure the problem.

    1. Pourquoi continuer à travailler avec un crack alors que vous pouvez obtenir le jeu légal gratuitement. Les extensions peuvent également être téléchargées gratuitement.
      Avec un jeu légal gratuit, vous avez également accès à la Galerie

  3. Hi, I applied the DLC unlocker after I downloaded all the packs to my legit base game and my game is fine. My question is, do I need to use the unlocker again when I use the updater for new released packs?

  4. Hi, when i place my sims into a new world it doesn’t give me any options apart from two worlds and says get now or something like that, overall i have 0 maps as its locked.

  5. Hi! My packs are all showing up as “download to use” instead of “owned”. Do I just have to wait a bit for them to download?

  6. Hi. It may not be related to the topic, but I have downloaded and mounted a lot of DLC’s. However, there are some SP’s that I don’t like and thought of deleting it from my game. Do I just delete that SP right away and re-apply the DLC unlocker if I start the game again?

  7. Hi! So I just download the anadius dlc updater along with my legal base game. I was playing fine for like 3 days but then currently, I can’t really play the game since it says that my dlcs are missing and so, wants me to continue playing without the said dlcs but it may corrupt my file. I tried updating the game via the anadius updater but nothings happening. What should I do?

  8. Hi. I have the legal base game on steam and i installed the packs from here. Can i upload stuff to the gallery? There is any chance to be banned from steam with this^? Thank you so much for the help.

    1. Yes you can use the Gallery with legal base game no issues. Download or Upload. There really is no difference.

      You must install the EA DLC unlocker v2 to display all your DLC as “Owned”

      There is absolutely no difference between using Pirated DLC vs Purchased DLC as far as content or file structure as they are identical.

      If you do not run the EA DLC unlocker tool the only DLC “Owned” are those registered on the EA/Origin server side.

      If you legitimately purchased the Vampires DLC for instance, but elect not to use it in your game, it will still show up as “Owned” when you run the app to display which DLC you own. The same is true if you added that same DLC from the updater but elect not to use it. However if you deselect Vampires DLC -or- delete Vampires DLC and rerun the the updater it will not display as owned when the app is run.

      All of the above only means that you have access to the Vampires DLC content available when “Owned”, Do not have access to the content when not “Owned”.

      Just adding the DLC content to your game is NOT enough to use it ingame. You need to “OWN” the content to use it.

      So no, using “Owned” content will NOT result in any forfeiture from Steam, Origin, or EA.

  9. Hii I downloaded the DLC with the updater and Now i am not sure of how to use the Unlocker with the EA app. since there is no longer Origin. Please May you Kindly Assist me

    1. You have instructions packed with the DLC updater, and with the Unlocker.
      It is customary to start the game “first time” using the executable from the Unlocker directory and make a shortcut on your desktop from that specific executable. That will allow the game to always refresh to your latest installation. No other intervention required until a new pak is introduced, and then, it will auto update to your fresh install. Any new patches installed by Steam/EA will automatically happen without your intervention.

  10. Hii I was playing normally and I clicked on gallery it told me if I wanted to be online or offline so I clicked only and now it won’t let me load my game or create a new one what can I do?

  11. Hi Tarac! Would like to thank you for your incredible work making Sims 4 available for all! I have a question for the future, I imagined you saw the news about Origin’s end to give space to a new client from EA. How will the pirated EPs and others work with this change? Do you have any idea yet? Any recommendation? Thanks again!

    1. Don’t worry, it won’t change much.
      As soon as you downloaded and installed the free base game, you become (what I call) a pack-system user, see this page.
      In-between updates not involving new DLC’s will be executed automatically by just starting your game. DLC’s however still must be downloaded manually. You can do that easily via the Anadius Updater.

    2. I was also wondering the same thing! With everything in the Sims 4 changing such as the EA App becoming the new client for the Sims 4 ( and now even modding will be moved to Curseforge) what will it mean for pirated EPs and people who use such things?

          1. cc, moi j’ai deja le jeux depuis 2ans et j’ai un mac du-coup est-ce-que je peux avoir tout les pack gratuit ou pas ?

  12. My game packs went totally missing after merging over. 🙁 Do I have to add them manually and I did the uploader as well 🙁

    1. The game packs did not disappear, the link to them did.
      It is very likely that when you updated to the legitimate SIMS 4, it was installed into a directory different from your previous install by using the default installation folder scheme.

      The easy way to fix that is to uninstall the EA DLC Unlocker.
      Uninstall the Pirated Version of SIMS 4
      You need to know the path for your legitimate game.
      like C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Games\The Sims 4\…..

      Reinstall EA DLC unlocker v2 and make a new desktop shortcut link.
      Run the updater again to select what DLC you want, then tick YES when asked if your legitimate game is installed here? (This is a reference to the top box on the installer that should reflect where your legit game is installed, not the previous game.)

  13. I download the updater and got the dlc unlocker
    And added the dlc
    Everything worked fine they all showed up fine
    But when the battery dies or restarting the computer with the off button all the dlc goes away and now it is only the base game

    1. I know what happened.
      See Amazonian420 reply by Indiana
      When you did the update, it most likely updated a different directory from where your legitimate game is stored.
      Follow the directions there.
      Your legitimate game should work with all DLC you picked .

  14. I downloaded he updater, did everything and when I open the game no dlc is “installed” when it is in the game files. I tried deleting the files from the game folder and try to re download and install it, update/repair it from the updater and origin itself. Nothing seems to be helping. Do I just have to delete the whole game? Please help.

  15. can anyone text me and let me know if the gallery works for them or not … I’m going to re-download it … so i’d really appreciate it my instagram is @m.iichelleeg <3

  16. hey, so i can´t update or repair my game over origin anymore. the automatic update and all that is activated. the trial version says ´´trial expired´´ and i can do nothing with it. Is there another way to fix this, expect to redownload the updater again?

  17. Hi! My gallery is not working, it says: “COULD NOT CONNCET: You must have The Sims 4 registered to your EA Account to access online features.” Can someone help me? What do I need to do?

    1. the same for me. i was looking for a solution here too haha. nice to see that im not the only one, they will answer i hope.

  18. i added everything and the packs work fine but now my mods don’t! please help. my old families also disappeared. using the pack system, thanks. <3

      1. Hey, I can’t post an actual comment but I can reply so this will have to work lol. I tried to put in the dlc toggler but I don’t have an installation folder. What should I do?

  19. hey, i used the updater a while ago to get a few packs and now i used it again and downloaded 4 packs including high school years, when i opened the game all packs showed up except high school years. i even took out my mods folder and it still says that i dont own high school. how can i fix this?

    1. ok i fixed it on my own, it was because of the dlc unlocker, i opened the sims and now its there! i hope everything else works fine. thanks u sm for doing all of this!!

  20. So I downloaded the updater, and completely updated. I can use the curved walls, but none of the highschool dlc is working, when i look at packs on the offline menu, it shows a spot where it would be, but it is blank and if i click on it, it tells me to go online and activate it. I even downloaded the iso and copied the files over. What did I miss?

    1. For you (Satanic Titties) or anyone else with this issue…

      For pirated DLC packs to work with legitimate games you need to download and install DLC unlocker v2. ALL installed DLC that you own or download from here will show up as “owned” when the Origin server connects to grant gallery access and game patch updates.

      If you are running strictly from the Updater you need to start your game from the “cracked” directory. If this is your choice you will NOT have access to the gallery, nor will your game update with new patches. You must run the updater at least once per month to keep your game working with the latest MODs and their respective game versions.

  21. Hello Tarac, first of all I would like to thank you for your amazing job.
    Do you have a clue of when the new DLC will be avaiable?
    And to install it, can I just update? Because I have all others DLC already.

  22. Would it be possible to add TS4 High School Years sooner? since some got early access? 🙂

  23. Hello, I’ve followed the steps on adding the DLCs to the legal game and it is owned and in the game however, both the worlds and DLC items show up as red and white with llamas or aren’t loaded entirely. What could I do to fix this? I made sure that the EA unlocker was updated as well. Plus I took out the mods.

    1. How did you remove the mods ?
      The one and only correct way is to move (not copy) the folder The Sims 4 out of C:\Documents\Electronic Arts to your desktop.
      see this page

  24. Hi! If I want to add some of the DLCs to my original game, is there any way to do it? Thx in advance!!! 😀

  25. Hey, I downloaded the game using the Anadius Updater method but my mother lanuage isn’t english and i can’t find a way to translate the game to portuguese, can someone help me?

  26. i left this comment but i cant find it , the question was when i download g12 seperately and tried to add it, it said the folder is too full, when i run it through anadius its giving a critical error message

    1. You tried to add GP 12 to the downloaded .iso instead of mounting GP12 and add the folder from the mounted iso to your installation folder

  27. Hi! First let me say thank you for providing all that you do! Everything works fine for me and works perfectly but I was wondering if you have any experience with reshade/gshade? I have a legit version of the game and had gshade installed on that so I figured it would work on the cracked version as well but I can’t get it to load any shader presets? Im not sure if its something to do with it being a cracked version and I dont know if I can ask on the gshade forum without being reported for having a cracked version. Let me know if you know anything, thank you!!

  28. I’m struggling to understand how to do step 1. When I try to run the fix OriginalClient, the only thing that pops up is code. I feel like I’m missing something

  29. Hez guzs, after updating to the latest, mz game is all broken, like missing icons and all sorts of glitches. why?

        1. you have to remove the UI mod you currently have. then download the updated version of the UI mod(if it’s already updated) and put that in your game.

      1. The UI_Cheats_Extension v1.32 mod works but interfere with game UI graphics.
        The UI extension mod will need update from v1.32 to work with High School patch.

        Other known mod issues

        Frimilin_expanded_rewards … complete fail
        ITA_ShowSimInfo… no popup

  30. hello I followed the steps to install the dlc on the legal game but I think my game still does not detect the dlc yet they are in the sims 4 file have I done something wrong?

      1. Yes I did it well, I even redid it just now and in the dlc-toggler it always puts all the packs in red

        1. The DLC toggler cannot be used in the legal game.
          It looks like you started your game from the folder Game-cracked instead of via Origin (folder Game)

  31. Hello,
    Thank you for the downloads!
    I downloaded some DLCs and put my game on an external hard drive since I did not have enough space on my computer.
    It worked perfectly but since a few days when I start the game it says I don’t have the crack DLCs even though they are in the field.
    I tried to download them all over again, repairing the game but it does not seem to work.
    Did it happen to anyone and did you fix it? If so, how?
    Thank you!

    1. I guess your The Sims 4 folder on your external HDD is not under the exceptions of your anti-virus and consequently your AV blocks the crack

      1. hi tarac, i have downloaded GP01 and it works and shows up as owned in my game, i now have cas items and build items, although the world does not apear. what do i do?

        1. Go to your installation folder for the Sims 4, When you open the folder for GP01, do you see the folder Worlds ?
          When not, you should re-download GP01

          btw, you cannot permanently live in the world in GP01 as it is a holiday resort, so it doesn’t show up in Worlds.

          1. alright, i didn’t know about the holiday thing, the world folder is there. therefore i’m guessing that’s the thing, thank you tarac for your quick replies, you’re a life saver :)!

  32. Thanks so much! I’m trying to download the EPs but there’s no seeders 🙁 The SPs took about 2 days to download but they work perfectly, thank you!

  33. hello! for some reason, the bin folder disappeared and i can no longer play sims 4. is there a way i can download just that folder or something like that?

  34. Cześć, mam taki mały problem i mam nadzieje, że pomożecie mi go rozwiązać. Mianowicie pobrałam grę za pomocą pierwszej metody wszystko poszło dobrze do momentu uruchomienia gry.
    Pojawia mi się błąd, że gra jest uruchomiona:
    (wygląda to tak:)
    Uruchomienie niemożliwe:
    Gra The Sims 4 jest już uruchomiona
    Jak to rozwiązać?
    dodam jeszcze, że nie mam oryginalnej wersji i pobierałam wszystkie dlc. Resetowałam też komputer nic to nie dało.

  35. Hello! I would like to report that the Gallery in the game, after the last update, is broken. I tried to fix it by reinstalling the whole game but it didn’t helped.

      1. Hello! Thank you for your quick reply. I log in to the game from the “(always online)” chose and the as soon as the game it’s load i go to the gallery but all the lots, households and sims don’t have pictures. Instead the have a big red x.

          1. Yes i have.
            No. it’s my real account. It used to work with that account. Thank you again.

          2. Hello again! Sorry that took me so long to responde. I did log in with a “dummy” account but it didnt work either.

  36. i had no mods folder when i installed the game, and when i made one it still doesn’t recognize that i have mods, any idea on how to make them work? its in documents/the sims 4/mods and i have both normal mods and script mods turned on in the settings

    1. The correct folder is C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods.
      That folder is automatically created as soon as you started your game for the first time.

    1. It is C:\Program Files\The Sims 4 -(to me)
      or C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4 -(for ordinary users)

      I hope you found it
      Simmer 😀

  37. when i try to uninstall dlcs from the dlc uninstaller it just tells me
    “could not find any dlcs
    error code 4”
    even though I have dlcs
    can you help?

    1. The DLC-uninstaller together with dlc.ini must be in the same directory as your install folder, where you also see the folders __Install, Data, Delta aso.

  38. “Forums”- is no longer active, or is moved somewhere ? (Sorry I’m weird, I like to read other people’s concerns, sometimes I help when I can 😛 )

    I am very grateful for the work you have done, you are the best of the best!
    Good luck and success to you there- i love you work!


  39. oi hoje eu estou tao feliz eu nao consigo nem pensar no que diser
    esse jogo quando minha mae estava depresiva me ajudou a ver um mundo de uma cor deferente……..e isso poriso que eu amo esse jogo 😉

    1. Good,

      Me again. I just downloaded the portable sims 4 version. Working 100% and it’s faster on my laptop. However I just went on Facebook and there is an update…how do I update the portable version?

  41. Hiii i have a big problem with the game.
    I saved the game in an usb pen and i don’t know if that is the problem, but when i start the game from the folder ( bcs i can’t start it from the dekstop ) the game freeze at the end of the “the sims 4” animation. I must try to open it several times to finally play :’). I tried everything but i still have to wait 30 min to play because of this problem. Am I the only one? How can I fix this if it’s possible?

  42. Hello! There is a problem with my cracked game, It always say “error relaunch game” . How can I fix this?

    1. Hello! Not sure if I can help you out as much as you’d like but let’s list out all the things you could try.

      First since when this error message appeared?
      Is it since the last update?

      Do you have cracked base game or legit bought base game?

      Do you use mods and/or cc?
      If yes have you tried to move them out of your game and start it
      without them?
      If it’s now working without cc and/or mods it means one of the
      cc/mods is broken or not yet updated.

      (You have to know that if you use mods since the last update 1.77 many MANY mods are updated in a way that even can break your game. Be sure to always check out after a game update if your modders updated their mods too!)

  43. First of all i just wanna say, bless you for the downloads and the amazing crack. You are a Godsend. Just one question though, are any plans to make your crack compatible with the dlc toggler? Because right now the toggler doesn’t work with it and i really don’t wanna give it up.

  44. Dankjewel! This is awesome. I really appreciate you providing downloads to all kinds of Sims content!

  45. Downloads do not create the Mods folder.
    The first time you open your game a folder Mods will be created in the folder:
    C:\users\your username\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4

    1. “`yaml

      1. You are missing megalog.package. You can download that file HERE
        After you downloaded it, place it in your installation folder The Sims 4 -> Delta -> GP10
