Preparations for the new Sims 4 DLC "Seasons" (Coming soon on G4TW??)

Post by The_gh0stm4n on Wed 20 Jun 2018, 22:12

Hello all!

The new and highly-anticipated The Sims 4 DLC Seasons is scheduled to be released shortly. Official release date for Origin is Friday the 22nd of June 2018. As usual, G4TW will be trying to come up with a repack of the new DLC as soon as possible, after the official release.

A lot of G4TW users had been or still are using the "ZLOrigin", to grab the new updates and DLC. Note that we are not associated with the platform and their staff, although we do try and give support, if people happen to ask. I did want to use the opportunity to address a few things regarding the ZLOrigin though.

Those of you following ZLOrigin have surely noticed that as of lately, their original root domain (zloemu.tk) was suspended, leading to some initial confusion among users, though with a quick hosts-file fix, the issue was initially remedied. In addition, there is also a new ZClient & ZLOrigin installation-folder that you can download, here - credits for that repack go to user @Tarac. So yes, the ZLOrigin is still running.

However, users are experiencing slow download speeds at the moment, which is no surprise. In anticipation of the new DLC (that seems to promise certain new dimensions in the gameplay), a lot of people are downloading simultaneously from ZLOrigin. The effect is that download speeds are slow for everybody. At this point you will need to bear in mind whether you want to download from ZLOrigin, or another source. If the download traffic for the current 1.44 patch is heavy, it should give you an idea about what is going to come up when the actual DLC is released. Make no mistake, despite some preparations on our end, the initial torrent speeds will also be slow. 

If you are an avid G4TW follower and user of our downloads, I personally would recommend that you wait for the G4TW repack in this case. It will help free up a certain amount of bandwidth from the ZLOrigin servers, and yes: it will also enable the G4TW team to grab the ZLOrigin files more easily. We have been relying on ZLOrigin, in the past few months, for these files. Keep in mind that we don't just grab the actual game updates, but also the language string files. Due to the way the game works, the game needs to be repaired each time in ZLOrigin, in order to download a new set of language string files. There are now 17 languages in The Sims 4, total. Each repair in ZLOrigin takes about 10 minutes to complete. Do the math yourselves, as to how long it ultimately takes us to fully extract the necessary files through ZLOrigin. Not including any error messages, that make the entire process even more painful to complete.

I know what some of you are thinking now. "I have ALL DLC of The Sims 4 on Origin, can I donate that to you??". The answer is: it would not provide us enough help. In Origin, you cannot repair the game to download a new language string-set, to my knowledge, and last time I looked. In Origin, you literally need to un-install and re-download the entire game just to grab a new language string-set. It is literally not doable by a single person, which is why we prefer using ZLOrigin, as the basis for our repacks.

It's an unrealistic expectation for sure, but maybe it will reach at least some people out there. Longer message, but thanks for reading and...stay frosty.

What a Face



P.S. if you absolutely must use ZLOrigin, for example because your ISP doesn't tolerate torrenting, or even if you prefer simplicity, then by all means: please don't feel 'deterred' by what I said above. Grab the stuff from ZLOrigin, then.

I was trying to be helpful, by providing an alternative link that is not likely to be taken down. And I did give credit to you as well, I think, in the announcement. Didn't you once lament that the "bad" Weebly and STACK-sites took down the ZLOrigin-files? 

But hey, if you absolutely want to post your STACK-account all over the Forum where it is likely going to be reported, then I'm not going to argue either.
Carlos is tha man

No I'm not complaining, just wondering why you chose for a site in the Russian language.
And yes, I'm not very keen on publishing my onw clouds, so in that field I'm happy that you used another link.

Aaah, that. Well, I could use the usual suspects such as MEGA or GoogleDrive, but I have a feeling that certain "hot" items are best reserved for cloud.mail.ru. Remember when you first uploaded the guide & files for ZLOrigin? Around that time, the Forum traffic was also heavy.  And the stuff was taken down quickly. 

It is an obscure site, and it's not widely used, but people should be able to figure out how to download the item(s). If not, they can still right-click in their browser and choose "Translate to [insert native language here]".

My most honest opinion is, I wish we could use more "obscure" sites. I once tried pan.baidu.cloud or whatever the name is, but it's too painful to use if you are not within China...

Topics merged, see the above announcement Smile  (there is not much point in having so many individual threads, about possible release dates).

In such cases update via ZLOrigin and add the cracked folder Game (as soon as it becomes available on G4TW) to your installation folder as Game_cracked.
You can then play the game online (Zclient/ZLOrigin) via Game\Bin\TS4.exe or TS4_x64.exe and play offline with the G4TW crack via Game_cracked\Bin\TS4.exe or TS4_x64.exe.
(I made 2 shortcuts on my desktop The Sims 4 - ZLOrigin and The Sims 4 - cracked)

For future updates/patches ZLOrigin will still address The Game folder and does not effect Game_cracked

To avoid a possible version-conflict copy the file Default.ini from Game\Bin to Game_cracked\Bin

At this moment you can use the latest G4TW Game folder as a temp. Game_cracked

Latest Game folder version 1.42.30.1020 can be found HERE
Extract with Winrar, rename to Game_cracked and copy it to your installation folder.
Start game from Game_cracked -> Bin ->TS4 or TS4_x64.exe

When you've updated via ZLOrigin you must copy the file Default.ini from Game\Bin to Game_cracked\Bin

Yes, that's why you must copy Default.ini from your Game\Bin folder to your Game_cracked\Bin folder.
Game_cracked then "thinks" it is 1.44 as well and both versions (ZLorigin and cracked) will work..

Are you sure that when you sterted the game ZLClient and ZLOrigin were not active ?
Also have you added your download and The Sims 4 to the exclusions of your anti-virus.?

I just tested it and both versions work perfectly.

I don't want to use Teamviewer simply because I don't want to be blamed in case there is something wrong with your computer after a Teamviewer session.
Although I know I wasn't the culprit, I do not want to be suspect.
