All-in-one Available as a torrent download. Download and play with all DLC’s in one single download. Future expansions can be added easily via the Anadius Updater. No need to download the full all-in-one again. Very large download, almost 50 GB Good download for NEW PLAYERS of the game as it contains all packs.
Extremely simple. Multi language.
Included: Language changer, dlc toggler, language strings.No need to download the all-in-one again when you downloaded an earlier version before. Use the updater to actualize your game.
Anadius Updater incl. SP36+37
Updater In my opinion the very best system to download, install, update, repair your Sims 4.
All DLC’s are selectable. Very reliable and extremely simple.
Can’t think of any Very easy to handle, just a few mouse-clicks required. It’s not a torrent nor a direct download. Everything will be handled for you on-line.
Your game will be updated from whatever version you have to the latest version.

Anadius Repack incl. SP36+37
Repack Add DLC’s in any order, update your game to the latest version. Simple and reliable. Smallest possible downloads
Also very good for an all-in-one
I prefer the Updater when you have already some DLC’s installed Very easy to handle, you just tick what you want and the setup does it all for you. Usually many seeders. A full all-in-one took me 20 minutes to download via torrents.
Most recent DLC/Updates incl. SP36+37
Recent Contains only the most recent DLC and updates. Your game must be up-to-date with the previous updates.  Updates for those wanting to play with cracked games

Download almost completed and then stops

This is caused by anti-virus programs. As soon as the crack for the Sims programs is detected the anti-virus aborts the download.
Why this is often noticed with downloaders from Thailand I don’t know
Thus, download and install the game whilst your anti-virus is switched off.

Change language of the game (applicable to all methods)

Misleading information

The above info could lead to the misunderstanding that you can choose to play with what pack you want to play. Totally wrong, you can’t choose at all as you can’t play Cottage Living or Get Together separately. You play The Sims 4 and the more packs you have the more “fun”.

  1. I dowloaded the dlc yesterday , i have the legal game, and i was working just fine, but when i tried to play sims 4 today it was saying i dont have the dlc at all even tho i know its there? im not sure what to do next. i tried restarting my computer and uninstalling and reinstalling the dlc but nither of those worked.

  2. i downloaded with legal game and dlc unlocker and it worked fine the first time but then the next day ingame it said i have all the packs but i couldn’t see any of the items

  3. Can you add custom content to the all in one version? I tried to add some on whilst watching a YouTube video about it but it didn’t seem to work.

  4. My sims says its not up to date with the latest version and i used the updater! I cant get anything offthe gallery because of this.

    1. If your legitimate Sims 4 base game install is not up to date, then just start the game. It will update by default. Always do this step before attempting to add pirated DLC.

      If your Sims 4 is a repack (pirated) then you must download an updated repack version from the SAME packer, there is no auto-update feature.

      As of 18 October 2022 there is no reason to run anything other than a legitimate base game version because it is now free for download.

      Follow the directions for installing pirated DLC to your legitimate game.

  5. Hi, I installed the game according to your instructions with EA, however, the game starts fine but crashes when i have to start playing. The screen remains on the green diamond and the worlds do not appear. Is there a solution to this?

  6. Hi. Just updated and now my games is laggy. TRied a new game, tried without mods, reset my sims folder…nothing works. Was fine before the update. Help!

  7. Hi, for some reason, my mods aren’t registering in the game, although I had installed them in the correct place.

  8. Salut! J’ai téléchargé le jeu il y a un mois et je n’ai eu aucun problème jusqu’à maintenant. Je tente d’ouvrir le raccourcis mais celui ci m’indique que l’emplacement n’est pas disponible, j’ai donc recherché manuellement le dossier initial mais celui ci à totalement disparu de mon ordinateur, rien dans la corbeille, ni dans les programme bloqué par mon antivirus, ni dans la recherche de programme. Je ne comprends pas ce qu’il se passe, il y a 3 jours encore il était là

    1. On dirait que vous avez joué via l’iso lié. Cet iso n’est probablement plus monté ou il a reçu une lettre de lecteur différente.
      S’il est toujours dans votre client de téléchargement, faites un clic droit dessus et sélectionnez Ouvrir l’emplacement du fichier

      Peut-être que l’iso est toujours dans vos téléchargements, puis liez-le à nouveau

  9. Hi,

    How come the online option isn’t working anymore? I tried to go on the online gallery on says you have to connect, even though I clicked on the always online icon. I uninstalled it and reinstalled the game and still doing the samething. Am I missing something?

    1. It’s blocked because if you were to go online, It can be detected that you haven’t brought the packs, and then you will be banned off Origin

  10. Hello, it’s possible to re-name Anadius from the game? I wanted to put my nickname. And the all-in-one version it is possible to use online?

  11. hi, i’ve downloaded a couple of gamepack and expansion packs but somehow i now have double worlds. i can’t delete them. i’ve checked all of my folders and i have no double files. i even tried reinstalling them and installing them again but same problem….

  12. Hi, I have the Anadius Updater for TS4 on Windows 10 right now but I’m switching to a Macbook next month. Is the Anadius Updater available for Macs? Sorry If you answered this before I just couldn’t find info about this.
    Looking forward for you reply, thanks in advance!

  13. When I first used this I only downloaded 2 packs to make sure it worked. Now that I want to download more packs with this do I have to reselect the original 2? Sorry if confusing

  14. Hallo, gisteren heb ik dat updater gebruikt.
    Nu als ik vandaag wil spelen, geraak ik wel in de game maar het hoofdscherm heeft vanboven alle letters door elkaar (waar normaal je packs, kits,… staan)
    Ook kan ik nergens op klikken. Het spel al enkele keren opnieuw gestart maar werkt niet.

    Ik kon dan 1x opstarten offline, toen werkte het wel…. maar na opnieuw opstarten had ik hetzelfde voor met offline.

    Wat kan ik doen? Momenteel via de updater aan het proberen met ‘repair’
    alvast bedankt!

  15. hello! im using the anadius updater, if i want to download mods/cc, do i put them the same way i did when i only had the legal base game? or is there any other way i have to do it

  16. Hello, I’ve downloaded the cracked game here. Can we access the gallery or online features? I’m playing in always online shortcut.

    1. BTW, like to recommend cause it’s totally working and did not damage my laptop after playing for like 2 Months. I just don’t know if we could access gallery if the whole game was downloaded from here.

        1. Hello Tarac , i downloaded the updater for my cracked sims 4(version everything was fine but at the end of the extracting stuff an error showed up saying: Cant move files to your game folder.
          if you dont have administrator rights – copy your game somewhere else, for expamle:”D:/Games/The sims 4″ (i also tried to solve the problem by using FAQ but nothing worked) What should i do????

          1. When your “installation folder” is an .iso, you can’;t write to it.
            Copy the contents of the .iso to your hard disk and make that your installation folder.

    2. You can if you make a origin/ea account I done it as it gives you a step by step guide when you click on go online

  17. I’m currently updating from 1.88 via utorrent and I was just wondering if after I copy the mounted update iso files to my Sims 4 download destination (i downloaded the game through utorrent as well) if I could possibly delete the update files from the mounted update iso to save space, if not do you have any other solutions?

  18. Hi, I tried updating via the repack. It usually works fine but this time a file was flagged as containing a trojan.

  19. hello, so i downloaded all the recent updates, game is up to but when i enter the game it says about werewolves pack to download and use, it doesnt seem owned, what should i do?
    best regards!

  20. Hi I’ve installed all the packs, the chickens on country living don’t seem to come out the coop… any patch to sort this? Thanks Jen

  21. hello! i downloaded all the packs and it shows that i have them but it only shows the base game worlds when i try to start the game, what can i do?

      1. it says this:
        Game version: [b][/b]

        what should i do?

        1. As you can see the problems are with the folder Game.
          Download the latest folder game as described on this page
          When that’s done, the crack will be recognized as well as the installed packs.

  22. Hi, I dont have the base game, is it possible to use the Updater to install the whole game from scratch? Will be any problem with it? Thank you

      1. Brilliant, thank you so much

        Also thank you for everything you are doing to help us poor people to play.

      2. Hi just download the expansion packs when i go onto the game it says download to play and im not sure where to go or what to do please help 😊

  23. ik heb het alles in 1 pakket gedownload, kan ik hierbij ook mods downloaden van bijvoorbeeld the sims recourse?

      1. Bonjour tarac j’ai installer la totalité des sims jeux + dlc une fois connecter on me dis qu’il faut faire une mise à jour sur le jeu sims 4 je joue en online et je suis connecter à origin
        Je précise que je peux jouer sans mise à jour
        Mais Est ce que je peux la faire ou pas ou ça risque de me bloquer le jeux ?

  24. Hi, thank you so much for all your work! It works great, except for one thing – I’d like to play online with gallery, but in my country I can’t have the trial version of the sims 4 so I can’t do it this way. Is there any other way?

      1. Yes, I did :/. Also, I do have the official base game and I have no idea how to update it. Does anyone know how to do it?

        1. Use the Anadius Updater and make sure you answer YES when prompted for your legal game in the same directory.
          The updater creates a new folder Game-cracked in your legal The Sims 4 directory and will add the ticked packs.
          When that is done, run the EA DLC unlocker (see this page)

  25. Hello,

    The prompt to log into the gallery is not appearing for me, it is the first time I open the game

  26. hello, also just updated my game but none of the new scenarios show up and in the neighbourhood menu the icons dont show up aswell any solution thanks

  27. hello, when i try repairing my game it states that it cant hatch the Delta/SP25/clientdeltabuild and i cant delete it because the file is corrupted any advise on how to fix this?

  28. when i try to run as admin it says “You put the Unlocker in a path that will break the setup script. Move it somewhere else, for example “C:\unlocker” or “D:\unlocker”.” any help

  29. hello! because i am new to all of this, i wanted to ask where i can download the base game? (a cracked one) thank you!!

  30. Hi! I downloaded + installed the pre patch and the wedding stories update, nothing shows up in the game. I always use your uploads so i cant imagine doing something wrong. When i go to my packs its just shows a blank box, all the other ones have a picture of the game pack. How can I fix this?

  31. Hi I’m having a problem with the client build file it won’t let me transfer it. I’m not sure if I have done something wrong I only have used your files for all of my sims 4

  32. Hi Tarac, thanks so much for everything you do. I just wanted to let you know in case, I’ve downloaded the wedding stories from the updater, but the world doesn’t load at all, just a white screen and can’t do anything but exit to main menu!

  33. Hello Tarac! Thank you so much for everything, I’m so excited to play with Wedding Stories. Is it coming out today? I couldn’t even sleep from all the excitement! woo

  34. Anybody know if its possible to still buy packs when using anadius? I wanted to buy the new my wedding stories pack, and it says I own it even though anadius hasnt released it quite yet

    1. Yes of course you can still buy packs for your legal game
      In my legal game the picture of SP12 does not even show up, in my cracked game it shows as Download to use and when I untick My Wedding Stories in the dlc toggler it shows not owned.

  35. Good evening, I installed the sims 4 from this page and I noted that in the sims folder there was not a ‘saves’ folder. Should it be like that? Because my games are saving I would just like to know where. I would like to add other games into the ‘saves’ folder.

    1. Your saves folder has nothing at all to do with expansion packs. That folder is stored in a different directory C:\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Saves

  36. Hi Tarac, hope you are doing well.

    Is it possible to not download some of the packs, i want to download but I’m not sure about some packs

    Do I download all the dlc for it to work

  37. Hi Tarac. I have the crack version of the game. I got this update and now i have the option to log into the gallery. I have not logged in yet since i prefer to play offline. Will logging in the gallery delete any of my progress?

  38. Hello Tarac, this is the first time i will update my crack.sims game. So im wonderIng if my game will lag. If not will the update delete anything?

  39. Hey Tarac, I have a question
    See I don’t have the legal game but I do have the cracked base game from the site
    So my question is that will the Anadius update method still work on my cracked game?

    1. That is correct in some way, however what virustotal considers to be a virus is in fact just a crack to circumvent Origin files.
      So completely harmless.

  40. Hi, Tarac. Ever since I’ve downloaded and used your DLCs, I can’t play any scenarios. When Sims opens and I get the welcome screen with New Game, Load Game, and New Scenario, and I click on New Scenario, nothing happens. Do you know why this might happen? Thanks!

    1. Update your game via the Anadius Updater. If your game folder contains your legal game then click yes when prompted about your legit game otherwise click No

  41. hello! first of all thank you so much for ALL of these options.

    i got the game to work and have access to the gallery, however it says i have “pre-ordered” cottage living and snowy escape, but don’t have access to its content. it also says i don’t have the paranormal stuff pack in CAS.

    not quite sure how this happened as when i installed the game + dlcs i only unchecked one of them.

    i was just wondering which downloader or what would be the best way for me to get these missing few packs? thank you!

  42. Hi, Tarac. Ever since I’ve downloaded and used your DLCs, I can’t play any scenarios. When Sims opens and I get the welcome screen with New Game, Load Game, and New Scenario, and I click on New Scenario, nothing happens. Do you know why this might happen? Thanks!

  43. Hello,
    I ran into a problem:
    In sims 4 why i can’t build public spaces anymore??? When i go into build mode on any lot, there’s usually a little info button up the top. It’ll give me different options like changing the name of the lot. It’ll also say “Residential” or whatever it is. From that drop down menu, i got change the type of lot, and it’ll tell me if there’s any required items for the lot to function and stuff. There are only 3 residental choices now? ???

    Help: I want to build a park, etc. and a shop, etc. but I can’t because there is no choice??????? ( I also took a picture of the screen if needed).
    – What should I do?

    1. As 95% of all problems is caused by mods, temporarily MOVE (not copy) your the Sims 4 folder out of C:\Documents\Electronic Arts to your desktop.
      Start your game again. Close the game and copy the folders Saves and Tray back from the Sims 4 folder on your desktop back to the newly created The Sims 4 folder in C:\Documents\Electronic Arts.
      Try your game now.

      1. Thank you for answering!
        I discovered in the meantime: I can’t change lot type – if “my sim” is on lot. I have to go to the create world, and choose another lot location (which is not mine, etc.)
        I don’t know what’s causing this (or I’m stupid, and that’s been the case all along – although I don’t remember it before, and i have been playing this game for yeaaaaars ?!) So I get around that problem.

        Thank you again for answering, and Wonderful holidays and the upcoming New Year for You!

        Lady from Finland

  44. I have downloaded the game with the .iso file. Instructions said that I need to copy the sims 4 folder to a different location in my computer than the mounted iso. So I did. Now my question is. Do I have 2 games. One in mounted iso and one in my computer? And can/should I delete the iso file to be still able to play the game from the copied sims 4 file. Because the iso file is like 50gb. I want to get rid of it. Can I get rid of it and still play the game? I would appreciate any response.

  45. Can You please provide a clearer step-by-step guide on how to extract the unlocker and the updater, just in case I somehow misunderstood the instructions in the link. I don’t know what i’m doing wrong.

  46. Thank you for everything. I haven’t experienced any problems so far. The updater is very awesome. Have a great day!

  47. Hi guys,
    We are using the updater from time to time. The last time we used, it made an error. This happened before, it was not a big deal, I have tried again and it was done this time. But this time, we tried once again and only find the Anadius box. The reason we do not want to do with Anadius version is because we did that before and it completely chrushed the game. It cause all kinds of problems so we had to download the whole game from the beginning. So I would like to dowload it using codex. How can I do that? What can I do in this situation? Could this be related to not using the latest version of the updater?

    1. I just had the same problem and have had to redownload the whole game all over again. I already had the issue where I had extracted the DLCs into the installation folder of my legal game, and the game was coming up saying that I did own all the DLCs but then I looked, and I couldn’t actually access any of them in game. That’s when I tried to fix the issue with the updater. I could play the main game fine but when I used the updater to try and update the game,the whole Sims 4 just seemed to stop working and now I’m wondering if it’s even safe to try using the updater again.

      1. 1. Update/Repair your legal game via Origin.
        2. When you run the Updater you are prompted with a question like “Does this folder also contain your legit game” – answer with Yes. should you answer with No, the updater overwrites the folder Game of your legal game and your The Sims 4 will turn into a cracked game.

  48. Hello! Everything has downloaded fine and is showing on the home page on the actual game however when I try to download the packs.. it asks if I want to connect to the internet and then says access denied. I’ve rang the updated again but the same message pops up!
    Anyone had the problem?

  49. Hi! I have been using your updater and it’s working great (thank you!), however I’m not able to start any scenarios in the latest update. Everything else in game is fine, but when I push the button for new scenario nothing happens. Any ideas on what the problem is?

  50. Hello there, i’ve been using the updater for a while now and it’s always working. (So now in the game i have until cottage living with courtyard oasis kit,…)
    When the newest kit’s came out (industrial loft kit – incheon arrivals kit) i used the updater and my game is now version : but the latest 3 kits doesn’t show up in the game…
    What can i do?

    1. When you open the installation folder of the Sims 4 (not the one in C:\Documents\Electronic Arts) you see, besides the folders Install, Data, Delta, Game and Support, the folders for your DLC’s (EP,FP,GP and SP).
      Do you see SP24, SP25 and SP26 ?
      If not: You browsed in the Anadius Updater to an incorrect installation folder
      If yes: Start your game and click on the top of your screen on KITS. Do they all show up ?

  51. Hello, I had the cracked game (pre latest kit update) on a USB stick that recently broke. I do have the base game (legit) so my question is, if I were to use that method to download just the packs will I lose the builds and gameplay from that version on the USB? Thanks!
    PS I did use a dummy account to log in too

    1. All your gameplay items are in a different directory on your hard disk (not on the USB): C:|Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
      These will not be affected by a new installation of the game.
      So go ahead, install your legal game (via your legal log-in), add the required DLC’s, run the Unlocker and you should still have your old builds, sims and gameplay items.

  52. Hello, is there a torrent file for the base game 64x latest? I tried to download it in the updater but it takes too long . and I don’t really have much space for the all In one. Thank you

  53. Hi! I’ve downloaded from this site before so i have everything up to Moschino. I tried downloading the new packs but it failed in my torrent download. I’m a little lost on your page and dont really know what to do. So ill just leave this here in case you have any advice and I dont manage to fix it. ill keep trying but i dont know why it didnt work the first time.
    THanks for this awesome site!

  54. Hello. How do you use CC ? if I d/l from SimsResource for example, where do I install it too, file location etc and how do I enable it in the game please ?

  55. Hello! When I try to go to the instruction page to download DLCs to my legal game, it says page not found?

  56. When I try to go to the instruction page to download DLCs to my legal game, it says page not found?

  57. Hello. Its 8/14/2021 and I am trying to use the updater, but it doesn’t open or anything. What should I do?
