  5. In Updates, check Update games automatically as well as Enable background downloads.
  6. Windows: When the game is downloaded, Run the EA DLC Unlocker (see this page)
    Mac: run the Origin DLC Unlocker (see this page)
  7. Windows: When you want to add missing DLC’s, run the Anadius Updater (see this page) or use the Pack System
    Mac: add the missing DLC’s from this page

Step 3 – Add missing DLC’s to your legal Game

method 1 – all DLC’s in 1 single download (not suitable for disks in FAT format)

  1. Download the iso for all DLC’s
  2. When download is completed, mount the iso
  3. Copy all missing DLC’s to the installation folder of your legal The Sims 4

method 2 – Select missing DLC  (also suitable for FAT formatted disks)

  1. Download a small file EA DLC Unlocker v2.
  2. Extract with Winrar
  3. Right-click on Setup and run as Administrator
  4. As this is a small .bat file you can’t use the mouse, so type 1 after Choose option Number

  7. Type Q to exit

Play in a different language

  2. Mount the iso
  3. Copy the folders Data, Delta and the file Language Changer from the mounted iso to the installation folder of your legal The Sims 4

  1. Omg, I Can’t believe they decided to Remove The Sims 4 Legacy Edition, seems like the only Option is download the repack of Discover University.., No wonder I can’t find the option to switch from 64 to 32 bit from EA App 😭

    1. When you run the EA app the Legacy Edition can still be loaded. It is now included in the free base game and installs when you have a 32-bits machine.
      As far as I know you can’t run Discover University on a Legacy Edition.

    1. What are you trying to do, update your game ?
      When you have the legal game: log in on Origin, go to My Game Library, rightclick on the picture of the Sims 4 and select Update.

      When you don’t have a legal game: Use the Anadius Updater and when prompted about legal game, click No.
      Don’t tick the packs you cannot play with the Legacy Edition, being:
      EP08 and higher
      GP09 and higher
      SP16 and higher

  2. when i installed sims 4 32 bit, i didnt get a game crack folder.
    I am having some issues in the sims 4 32 bit where the windows and door randomly disappears and also with the rounded exterior trims which cannot be deleted, everytime i create a round balcony it auto adds a broken exterior trim which cannot be deleted, if i add another exterior trim the former one doesnt go away, i heart that this was fixed in the sims 4 …any idea why i am still having those glitches

    1. The problems with doors and rounded items are caused by faulty (outdated) mods.
      Temporarily move, not copy, the folder Mods from C:\Documents\Electroniuc Arts\The Sims 4 to your desktop and play the game again

      1. no it is not my mods the problem, the issue comes from sims 4 system itself which is glitchy by nature and unoptimized because i read many people were having these issues in sims 4 a long time ago.
        They have never resolved it in their patch.
        freezes and trims cannot be applied directly to two half rounded balconies and that has columns supporting it, i cannot even delete those exterior trims that suddenly appeared by itself when i joined the two half circles together to make it look like a round balcony, it says there is nothing to delete. I have updated the packages and tried repairing the game, the glitch persist. I believe it is in the game and on top of that my windows and doors randomly disappear.

        1. Recently with patch a lot of old problems were resolved.
          For the moment just disable scripts in the Sims 4 Options menu -> Other
