How To Update Your Game (Origin)

The Snowy Escape Expansion Pack is coming soon and with the changes that come with it and the base game, it means it is time to update your game once again even if you are not buying the pack.  So, how do you update your game?

Game patches tend to have an impact on Mods and Custom Contents (CCs) and since this update is going to be a huge one, these are a must do BEFORE updating your game if you are using Mods or CCs (Note that this tutorial is for those who bought their game on Origin):


Open Origin, hover (move your mouse over) on your Origin name at the bottom, and select Application settings from the main menu. 

Under Client update, disable Automatic game updates and Automatically update Origin.

And  for those who want to be really sure, disable Automatically start Origin as well.

II.  BACK UP YOUR GAME - Get instructions on how to backup your game here.

III.  REMOVE ALL MODS AND CCs - Exit your game and remove all Mods and CCs from your Mods folder.


V.  DELETE/UPDATE MODS AND CCs - After updating the game, check for any outdated or broken Mods and CCs.  You can use The Sims 4 Tray Importer to check for broken/outdated CCs and delete them from there or you can also manually delete them from your Mods folder. After deleting outdated/broken CCs, re-download the Mods and CCs that you need and then do a batch fix using Sims4Studio just to make sure you have everything in check.

When you start up The Sims 4 after any update, mods are disabled by default, so you may have to enable (tick the Script/Custom Content and Mods check boxes) them in your Game Options.


If the Mods or CCs aren't appearing or working properly in your game, you may have to contact the creator for assistance.  If you notice any lag or trouble in your game and there is no way for you to resolve broken Mods or CCs, you will have to remove them from your Mods folder again and wait until they are fixed before putting them back in.
