The Sims 4: Update, repair, add DLC’s

Download, update, repair your game and add missing DLC’s. Thanks to Anadius

“Wizzard” Anadius came up with a program enabling you to update, and repair your game with just a few mouse-clicks.

No manual downloads, no copy/paste, the program does it all

Download the
Extract with Winrar or 7-Zip
Click on Sims-4-updater
Click on Browse and select your The Sims 4 Installation Folder
Click on Update, this will also repair your game
Click OK
You can just update your existing game without adding DLC’s  (Click OK)

The program shows an overview of non-installed DLC’s
(in this example all SP’s and Legacy Edition.)

You can Add missing DLC’s
Tick the DLC’s you want to add to your game and click OK

 

 

The program is now checking all your installed DLC’s for the latest update and adds the ticked items to your game

Now play your updated/repaired game and you see that all DLC’s are in the game, even those DLC’s you have not installed..
From the download of the Updater, copy the files dlc and dlc-toggler to your installation folder.
Run the dlc-toggler
All non-installed DLC’s are marked in red.

Uncheck the red boxes and close the toggler

When you now start your game it’s clearly visible which items are installed and which not.

Should an error occur, just repeat your last selections. All items already downloaded are stored in the folder Updates. The program performs a quick check and continues the task.

Where is the base game ?

When you did not install the base game earlier, you should use the Repair option and the base game will be installed as well as your selected DLC’s.
Some people wish to play the fully updated base game without other DLC’s (lack of disk-space or computer not powerful enough ?). In such cases Click Repair and don’t tick other DLC’s.

First of all create a new folder The Sims 4 on your computer. Place that folder under the exceptions of your Anti-Virus program  Lead the updater in the first step to that folder.


Change language

  1. In the downloaded updater you’ll find a file called Language Changer
  2. Double-Click on it and select your language
  3. Click Yes, Yes and OK in the pop-up screens.

  2. Open that folder
  3. Double-Click on all (4) files
