  1. Sims 4
  2. ----
  3. Is sims 4 worth buying?: If you've got 400+ dollars to was- I mean, spend, then by all means.
  4.  
  5. Where do I pirate?: Try Fitgirl, thesimarchitect games4theworld
  6.  
  7. How do I update once I pirate?: Skidrowcodex has seperate patches and updates.
  8.  
  9. Is there a way to access the gallery on a pirated copy?: https://ts4installer.tumblr.com/gallery
  10.  >Where do I put trays I got using this method?: They're tray files. They go into the tray folder.
  11.   >An Anon has written script for greasemonkey/tampermonkey that basically gives you the browsing privileges of a premium member. In addition, all download links go directly to the file instead of going to that "thank you" page. It also allows you to download directly from the gallery page by clicking on an item's preview image. If you want to navigate to an item's page, just click on the info that's below the preview image. (Thank you, Anon!!)
  12. https://openuserjs.org/scripts/asensualmarquee/RST_Renovation_Script_for_TSR
  13.  
  14. Can you use cracked DLC with a legit basegame: No.
  15.  
  16. Which sims is the best sims?: 4 has it's own merit but is missing alot of things from previous games, and it's CAS is superior to all else. 3 has performance issues and doesn't look as nice as 4, but has the best mods, open world, and the most content. It also has a create-your-own-world tool. 2 has a lot of charm but isn't too nice to look at. It's got good content, CC and mods. Also has a bunch of sim stories floating around on livejournal, if you're into that. 1 has a great soundtrack and has a nostalgic feel to it, even if you haven't played the game. There are lots of things to do and interact with. However, there is a difficulty curve regarding keeping your sims needs up, and seeing how the game is almost 20 years old, it's not very pretty. It is also isometric. Tldr: they're all great
  17.  
  18. Can you use lewd mods with a legitimate copy(or pirated)?: Yes and yes, there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to.
  19.  
  20. how do I install mods?: save to Documents>Electronic Arts>Sims 4>Mods. Depending on how much you plan on picking up it might be easier in the long run to have your cc and mods organized by type. However, script mods can't be buried too deep in subfolders or they will not work.
  21.  
  22. But I don't have a mods folder!: ThEn MaKe OnE.
  23.  
  24. Why won't my mods work?: MAKE SURE THE MOD YOU PICKED UP IS NOT OUTDATED AND IS GUARANTEED TO WORK WITH YOUR GAME VERSION. There is an option in settings that allows custom content and script mods to work; this option is disabled after every update, make sure it's always checked. As mentioned before, script mods can't be buried more than two subfolders or they will not work properly. Your mods might also clash with eachother, don't skim through the descriptions of where you got them because they normally do state what they won't work with.
  25.  
  26. I'm getting a bunch of last exceptions, and I can't understand the txt files: http://lastexception.com/
  27.  
  28. What are Alpha, clayified and maxis match textures?: Maxis match is the style that resembles vanilla sims the most. Alpha textures are more shiny and realistic, often photocopied and pasted onto items. Clayified is the attempt to make alpha hair look more like maxis match. It's often not shiny like alpha textures but doesn't have the bulk that maxis match hairs do.
  29.

  44. How do I get a sim from /tsg/ into my game? How do I upload my own?: Copy paste all of their tray files into your tray folder.

  48. I want to get rid of some ugly CC, but I have so much that I can't figure out what's what! What do I do?: Make a sim and load it with every bit of CC you don't want, then save the household. Tray uploader will show you everything you used, and will highlight what you probably don't want gone gray ie. default cas items. Compare and delete. Alternately, you could download Sims 4 Studio, and click my CC. It shows you your .package files in your mods folder on a sim model. http://sims4studio.com/
  49.  
  50. I think I may have some duplicate content, but I don't know how to find them!: The conflict detector will scan through your mods folder and show you things that may not belong, like duplicates, broken files and conflicting mods.( some mods will false flag, be aware) It can be found here: http://modthesims.info/d/561550

  86.  >Here's a link to the F95 forum where the mega patreon collective (NOT AN ALL-IN-ONE) of some of these mods are posted. Read the post. Seriously. If you download the entire mega folder and come to /tsg/ asking why your game doesn't work anymore, congratulations, you're a certified retard. If you picked out the mods you wanted but are still having trouble getting them to work, please see "Why won't my mods work?" and "how do I install mods?", and finally, read the separate FAQ posted in the F95 link. If you have done all of this and your mods still don't work, maybe we'll be able to help you.

  97.  
  98. How do I install mods?: If it's a sims3pack, your webrowser will open it in 3 launcher(if your adblocker is disabled). The launcher will download and install the sims3pack, and if your game is open, it will be available almost immediately. For package files, see:http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Files/Setup_and_Files

  103. Majority of animations do not come with the mod. You have to download them separately. When playing, KW might not recognize some animations right away. You have to open the menu and input the name of the animation manually, then it will load it into your game.
  104.  
  105. Where can I find some custom worlds?: General rule of thumb; bigger the world, longer the load, and the worse it will run.

  117.  
  118. How do I make a good-looking sim?: Default skin and eye CC are a must. Make sure you have your sim texture setting to very high.
  119. 3D eyelashes and extra slider settings may help.

  122.  
  123. How do I make the game not run like hot garbage?: It's going to run somewhat badly regardless of what you do, but a SSD will reduce stuttering, lag and loadtimes drastically. Run your game with only 3 or 4 EPs and SPs at a time. NRAAS's Overwatch helps routing errors and cleans excessive car and radio usage, too. https://www.nraas.net/community/home

  129. My resolution is stuck on 800x600! How do I fix this?: Find your Graphicsrules.sgr file in  C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSData\Res\Config. Open it with notepad and change  “seti Low 1” “seti Medium 2” both to 3. Then, open the find box and search for 'ScreenModeResolution'. There will be a bunch of resolutions here, all set at 800x600. Set the first two lines of each one to 1080x1920. Now when you open your game again, you'll find several new resolutions.

  149.    >CC and mods:https://www.mediafire.com/file/yorie3ou4yji8i4/Downloads.rar/file
  150.  >To install, you don't need a virtual disk drive. Unzip the folder, then look for start.exe. When it asks for the crack, go to the crack folder and enter the serial. Now let it install. When it finishes, go to c:\program files (x86)\maxis\the sims and locate the sims.exe, delete it and replace it with the sims application found in the crack folder.
