The Sims 4 - *EXPERIMENTAL* Downloading from Online Gallery.

Post by anadius on Tue 18 Dec 2018, 17:19

If you want to download things from gallery - it is now somewhat possible.

First you need to find desired gallery item. Thankfully, you don't need to own The Sims 4 to access online gallery. Just create a free account, log in and you can browse it.

Then just paste the item URL here and press download. Or install the UserScript posted there and download directly from the gallery page.

If the file is cached already, download link will open in new tab (enable popups for my page for this to work). If it's not cached, it will be added to the queue. Wait time can range from 5 minutes to days, but I give you no guarantee. It's all really experimental so if it breaks, it breaks.

Note: this will not grab pets from households as I don't own Cats & Dogs! Thanks to generosity of Shinji257 (one user from my Discord server) pets are no longer missing from households!

Nice! So, if there's no item, how will it notify the user their download is ready? I did not see a way to log in or provide an email address for notifications.

It won't. Adding login system would be a pain, I wanted to keep it as simple as possible. Just try to download the item later. When I'm on PC the script runs once every 15 minutes. If the wait time is longer that means:
a) I'm not online
or b) the script crashed and I need to restart/fix it

In general wait time shouldn't be longer than 24h.

Thank you so much for this! So, I have installed the UserScript and Violentmonkey and I have no clue on what to do now? Could you please help!

Just create free account on ea.com, open gallery link posted on my website, log in and just browse the gallery. When you see something you like click download button (this works only with UserScript, without it you would need to copy that item url and paste it on my website). Wink

Your instructions are confusing to me, sorry.

If I open the gallery on line, copy the link, paste and click on download, it should "do" something, even if it's showing a message box with instructions on how to get the files if they're not "ready yet"... Clicking Download just greys out the button and nothing else.

I don't see myself, as a user, keeping tabs open in my browser just so a script can run for hours until my files are ready to download, sorry... There should be perhaps a link for us to copy and open later or something. Maybe make the browser download a shortcut file (.lnk) or something like that?

I was trying to make a video tutorial, but I can't do it if I can't understand how to use the tool myself from the start until the end, when the item is in the game already, sorry.

Right now both my site and UserScript communicate with a database hosted on heliohost.org, which is slow and sometimes not responsive. I'll probably change it soon to other host. But when it works, it should show some message or open download page.

You can just bookmark gallery items you want and check again later.

Oh! So it gets stuck "doing nothing" not by design, I get it. Cool!

I don't need to download anything right now, I just want to spread the word about your new shiny tool.
