The magnet link won't work for download regardless of what torrent program I try to use. Admittedly I don't know much about using these programs so any help would be highly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the Forums!!

That can have several reasons. Maybe you did not yet port-forward properly. Or port-forwarding is blocked by your ISP. Or torrenting in general is being slowed-down, by your ISP. Let's try something simple for the moment. If you have uTorrent, check this out:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t11496-how-to-speed-up-fix-utorrent-downloads-guide

Apply the same settings to your own uTorrent, according to the guide. If you are using something different than uTorrent, then try "adapting" the points in the guide, to whatever client you use. Take your time when doing so, then try torrenting again. Is it running now? If not, the source of the problem could now indeed be one of the things I mentioned at the beginning of the post.

If it does NOT work, and for simplicity, I would just recommend using the direct download option. Make sure to read the guide linked in the announcement, on how to properly import the item to your GoogleDrive. Note that you need at least 5.56 GB of free space on your GoogleDrive, before you can do this.

Good luck!

Arg, I CANNOT get this patch to download. I've spent 12hrs on 5 tries trying to download and it acts like it's downloading until it gets to the end and then says either "Noe enough Space" (Crock! I have 1Tb hard drive) or just "Document can't be downloaded".  Has anyone come across anything like this & have a solution?

Have you tried clearing your browser's cache/cookies? Or even tried using a different browser?

Also: did you download directly from original GoogleDrive-link, or did you properly import the item to your own GoogleDrive? You should prefer the latter method, with the help of the GoogleDrive tutorial I linked in the opening announcement.

Other than that it could be some temporary issue with the GoogleDrive, too, at which point I can't say much else other than try and wait it out. There aren't really that many good alternatives to GoogleDrive (talking about free services), which is the reason we haven't put up any other mirrors yet.

MediaFire is slow, and apparently lots of downloads are not completed there, unless you try using a download-manager like JDownloader 2 or IDM. Uptbox is not optimal either, and they seem to be running Bitcoin miners on their site as well. MEGA is basically total garbage unless your downloads are small in size. And if we paid for expensive third-party hosting, it would get reported in no time.

In a way it is sad that a lot of people cannot torrent anymore, because the majority of people here come from the Anglo-American "sphere (of influence)", and pretty much all of them receive these warning letters for torrenting items. But hey, if you want one good thing about it, then here is an idea. Maybe it will make people think more about internet privacy, and consider investing in a decent VPN, which at the moment is probably the best one can try.

Though I believe, that in reality most downloaders will simply be deterred by these warning letters, and instead refrain from torrenting completely. Maybe some of them will even end up buying those overpriced life simulation games/DLC. Who knows.


//EDIT


The VPN provider Windscribe has a free plan of 10GB per month, if you register a (free) account there. Should be enough for torrenting this particular item. I would advise, however, that you connect to a "friendly" country, before you start torrenting. The free plan has The Netherlands & Switzerland among the countries you can choose. Switzerland is better to connect to, because of a better privacy jurisdiction. But still, both countries are probably your best choices in the free Windscribe-plan. Not that many countries are available anyhow, on the free plan...but still. Check it out, if you haven't done so yet!

Ok so I"m not really up to speed on torrents and all that. Your warning about my net being blocked, what do you mean by that? I use Utorrent, have since my sister told me about this site. I dont need my net blocked but when i do that link it takes me to walmart. I just need to understand what you mean by torrents being blocked. I read someones post on Windscribe and again, what is that and will it help my net from being blocked and is it safe? I"m sorry. I'm not a tech person, I"m just an average jane who can't afford the games but loves the sims (been playing since Sims 1). I'm sorry if im being a pain Im just worried since I live with my parents, who would kill me if my games killed the net. I have two weeks free of kids, parents, and bad things and I really just want to be able to play. Again, sorry if this is too much of a hassle, i just need to be sure. Thank you in advance.

Hello and welcome to the Forum @Tessie1201,

(Longer read ahead)


If you are totally new to torrenting, there is a guide here for you to read:
https://games4theworld.org/Guides/How_to_download_a_torrent_Guide.pdf

Some basic information about what VPNs can (and cannot) do can be found here; yes, it mainly covers the service ProtonVPN, but for the beginning it's a decent overview:
https://protonvpn.com/blog/threat-model/

So about your question. Basically, when you torrent something, there is a window in your torrent client showing IP-addresses of other downloaders. Copyright holders and third-parties use that technicality to snoop on downloaders if you wish. They then send out notices to ISPs. And in turn, the ISPs message whoever uses that particular IP-address. Note that only the ISP knows, that you are behind a particular IP-address.

It has happened that internet subscriptions were terminated due to torrenting, so you should be mindful of that. Use the direct download option instead, and as for your "Walmart"-thing, please read - again - the opening announcement of this thread here, as it contains a notice about the adverts we are using on the Forum here, to help us with financing this whole thing.

Now for VPN services. Very briefly, you will need to aim for paid services, because only they can cover you (sufficiently) against snooping. ProtonVPN is good and beginner-friendly, and it also has a basic plan for 4USD per month; I myself am using it. But if you live in North America, I would not recommend that service, because only 4 countries work there with torrenting: Switzerland, The Netherlands, Sweden & Singapore. Good enough for me, since I live in Europe, but if you live in North America that could be a hassle. You would have to connect to the European countries, which will slow down your overall connection speed. Unless you have a lightning-fast internet to begin with, it could be a pain to use. 

Windscribe is a better choice. Although based in Canada (= not an optimal privacy-jurisdiction, I admit), you could consider using it still for torrenting. Just make sure to connect to Mexico or Colombia, since those countries are relatively close to the US, and it won't slow down your internet that much. I think it also costs 4USD per month.

NordVPN is also a good service, costing a little more than 3USD per month, but you have to order a plan for 3 years (= little less than 100USD total). But make sure to connect to a Central- or South-American country as well there. 

If that stuff is too "heady" for you, then - as said - use the direct download option. Note that we don't have direct downloads for all of our stuff, since we specialize in torrents only. But anadius' stuff here has direct download links. An even easier solution for you would be to use Sim Architect's all-in-one solution, but since that is a torrent, you have to assume that it is being "watched" as well, so you would need a VPN there too.

I know you have to do some reading, and no doubt you would rather spend your vacation "getting right away to playing The Sims (4)", but on the other hand...if people want to play a free version of The Sims, they will need to do a little bit of reading. And I would definitely recommend, to at least try investing in a good VPN service.

Good luck!

We've got a Carloz.

Thank you so much that was very helpful. Kind of feel stupid but I at least have a better understanding now. Off to download and thanks for all you guys do. I love the sims and can't afford the games (lost my job due to people using fake money) so you guys are lifesavers! Have a wonderful day
