Hey all of you,

I'll convey the following in such a way, as most of you prefer it to be when visiting a dentist: as quick and painless as possible. Haters gonna hate  My intention is to delete all G4TW direct download links on GoogleDrive, except minor items and maybe the Legacy Edition Patch as well ... I have not made up my mind yet about that patch. But there you go. Now, before anybody goes on like this:

Hypothetical commenter wrote:You're such a jerk! I need those direct downloads! I can't afford a VPN! Why are you doing this to us?! Sad


So first of all, calm down. Secondly, wait until people have completely finished talking before making any assumptions. The main reason I am making this step is because our current format of TS4 repacks is becoming too inefficient and cumbersome to use. These G4TW repacks simply occupy too much valuable filespace on GoogleDrive. But we have something else coming, which we expect to be far more efficient and easier to manage.

It will also be A LOT easier for all of you, in the sense that it will be easier to download, and we intend to provide direct DL's for ALL Sims 4 DLC. Something we never really managed to achieve in all these years, with those large Sims 4 repacks. And which will change very soon.

So now what happens to the "old format" of The Sims 4 repacks? My plan was to continue those as usual, while simultaneously doing the new project as well. We will try putting up GoogleDrive links according to the old format, for new releases only, but we will take them down after a while. So we encourage you to grab those GoogleDrives quickly. Or use the new format straight away. Please understand I cannot give an ETA about how long exactly these GoogleDrives ("old format repacks") will be up: a good estimate would be a week though.

I'm also thinking of putting up replacements for the deleted GoogleDrive links, which will either be on Uptobox, MediaFire, cloud.mail.ru, or any combination of these. Yes, yes, I'm aware these alternatives are not too popular (especially Uptobox), but try and understand that we need to re-assign the existing GoogleDrive space, and in our opinion this is the most efficient way of going about things.

I won't do the "purge" immediately though. I will wait until shortly before we announce the new project, so you'll have a bit of extra time if you want to grab some of the existing stuff. Roughly until the end of this week, but no longer than that. I also want to invite you again, and thereby draw attention to the announcement about how you can help us with direct download links.

Good luck, and we'll 'see' you again soon.

So here's a quick update on the "project".

I originally wanted a quick release of it, but there have been some disagreements in the background as to certain details, on how to proceed. Which is always nice and welcome. Good and actually constructive feedback is always welcome, and needed!

But we will probably have to delay the release, at least until the new stuffpack ("Tiny Living") comes out. Or maybe even longer than that? Or longer...?

On behalf of the G4TW team I apologize for any disappointments and inconveniences, but due to certain pressures the project will have to be designed much differently than I originally intended to do. But we still strive to go ahead with the idea of the project, in whatever form.

Update: the "purge" of GoogleDrive links will start shortly. Everything will be removed, apart from Indie Corner games and that TS2 Ultimate Collection download.


Stay tuned for further updates~
