With the G4TW downloads you have to install the base game in C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
When that is completed you can move the Sims 4 folder to a location on your D; drive and continue installation of the DLC's on that new directory.

Hello @Chocolatte,

You can install the games elsewhere, but if you use G4TW's torrents, you must create install folders manually and before you install anything. See the post here for a possible way to do this:

Good luck!

Note that by default your savefiles and mods/CC will still be located under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.
