Fans and followers of G4TW!!

The following alternative installation format is inspired by guest contributor anadius's (former) work on G4TW, and partly also by a user suggesting that we re-surrect what used to be known on G4TW as the "TS4 Update-Only Ultimate Fix". The format is meant to simplify and reduce the number of necessary steps to patch your The Sims 4 game. In addition to that, there is now an option to add individual DLCs at your leisure!

Everything is in the 'usual' G4TW format of extract/copy/paste. Note that in case you still haven't grabbed 7-zip, you can do so for free here.

Who exactly should use this format? The main audience it is intended for, are the people who don't regularly keep up with The Sims 4. EA are not showing any sign of "relenting", with regards to constantly releasing mini-DLCs for the game, and G4TW's regular format of TS4 repacks has become a nightmare to use. Yes, we have to concede that. Maybe not so much for the people who really show up here every time we release something new. But if people don't regularly keep up, they have to resort to doing the step-step-step procedure.

Not so anymore! The format will just have one (1) patch, that can be applied regardless of which patch version you are on. It will always bring you to the latest available patch version + the No-Origin fixes courtesy of the group CODEX, plus the 18 language strings. It will drastically simplify and reduce the overall number of steps people will need to go through. Also included is the dlc-toggler, that is created and maintained by anadius. All credits for that go to him, we merely add it here as a supplement to the format.

We have also decided to re-release the Legacy Edition Patch, to accommodate the fact that EA's initial release was bugged. Without further ado, please read the detailed installation text guide and/or view the example walkthrough on the video.

Since there seem to be ongoing issues with the safelinking.net (or on the off-chance our links were 'reported'), I've put up a global folder for the direct download DLC files on STACK. If you want to grab DLCs, please use that global folder for the moment. 

The individual GoogleDrive items are still there, but since I don't show up much on here anymore, I can't really fix the individual DLC links now.

Other than that everything should be working as normal again.
