If you want a different than default language, you can go to the settings and select it under "Settings... General", then you should open the "Settings... Advanced" to define the folders you want to use for your downloaded game, your installers and also if you want to keep or delete the installers after using them (very useful if you want to install your games on a different drive).
Now, the easy part, you just scroll down on "My Games" until you find "The Sims 4", click on it, then on the small button with an "i" (for information), then click on Download.
To install the expansions (you can select as many or as little as you wish), just hover with the mouse over them and click on "Add to Downloads", repeating for each one you want in your game:
Wait until everything is downloaded and installed...
The small window on the right will show this when done:
Congratulations! Now the game is installed!! Each time you want to play you just need to run ZClient and open ZLOrigin after connected, then scroll down to the game, click on it, then Play!

Hi! I have been playing The Sims for years but this is my first time updating the game (TS4) on my own. I am just hoping you could help me. Do I need the previous patch updates to be able to do this one? Or can I go straight to this one without the past patch? To be more clear, my TS4 is super outdated (I bought a cd with TS4 crack and its version is 1.0.732. So, can I go skip the other patch updates and go straight to this patch? I need a newer version for Wicked Whims, hehe! Thank you in advance!
This post is a bit outdated, I’d recommend you to use The Sims 4 Tiny Living All in One Portable once it’s released or, if you want to play with University right now you can use The Sims 4 184.108.40.2060 All in One Portable Including December 2019 Update [Baby Yoda]
when the zlclient asks for credentials is it the EA password and email?? Because I tried those and they didn’t work
No, you need to follow all the instructions from my video / post.
But you don’t need to use ZL Origin anymore, you should be using The Sims 4 Discover University 220.127.116.110 All in One Portable [November 2019] instead.
ZL Origin versions are mostly for people who want the game right when it’s released in Australia or when they can’t use torrents.
Idk what I’m doing wrong with the install. I keep getting an update error message….
Oh? What are you trying to do?
oh and will the all in one be portable at all?
Yes, the All in One Portable is my main release and it will be released.
Hi! Thank you so much for sharing! I have already installed previous TS4 repacks but I would like to try out the new EP via ZLOrigin. Is it possible for ZLOrigin to detect my installation and allow me to only download the DLCs I’m missing (and if so, how could we do this?) or do I have to download and install the game and all of the packs all over again? Thanks again for your time. <3
Good question! I don’t know. 😟
I’d wait a couple of days to get the update version though, to be honest, so you can just install it and have University as well.
Hey, when I open the game an error message pops up that says please download legacy edition but there is no legacy edition between the addons for the sims 4 and it should be there. Is this an error or is it going to get updated later?
Oh, it sounds like something that would happen because the new version of the game is not compatible with 32 Bit Versions of Windows. Is it your case?
hello! i previously downloaded your all in one with realms of magic, is it going to be possible to download this update and university and install it with the game i have? if so, how? do you have a tutorial maybe?
Yes, please wait for University if you can, then you can just download the update version. 😉
Do we have to download it through ZLOrgin or are we allowed to download it the other way with uTorrent
No, you don’t. ZLORigin is just a way to get the game faster, but you can wait for the All in One / Update Patch to come up and install it (I am waiting myself).
when is the regular coming out because i download every thing. but when i press download sims 4 it says ‘we have encountered a problem. an unexpected error occurred, please try again in a few moments. Error: 327683:0.” I did try again later and I turned off my anti virus. please help me!
Oh no! So sorry to hear you’re facing this issue! The regular version is coming out as soon as possible, likely in a day or two, when University is released.
I did this version is there any special we need to do when the new pack comes out also how do I know if yesterday’s patch update got installed ?
Hi! You run the game and you see the version number at the menu screen that shows at start.
I installed as you say in your description, but when i start the zlorigon they want my former email and password even when i delete that account , can u help me please?
Oh? What do you mean? You lost your old ZLOrigin credentials? I know that to make things work you need to follow the steps very carefully and in that order. Of course, there’s going to be a new All in One in a couple of days, which will likely include the new Discover University. Maybe it’s better to wait?
Yes i think you’re right i had the game started but it’s looking pretty odd, can i use the all in one and do i have to delete this zlorigin? Thanks!
Hi! Yes, you can use the all in one, the new version is being released as soon as possible. Yes, it’s better to remove ZLOrigin if you don’t like it.
Yeah, no, I’m not downloading some shady client that wants to install a certificate while my antivirus is going nuts. False-positive or not I’m not risking it.
Please make it so we can just download the update files from here like before.
Hi! Yes, I’ll release the traditional repacks as soon as they’re available 😉
Oh, you are more than welcome. I only shared this version because some people like to play even before the Official Release (some time zones and regions are delayed by EA).
