How do I combine my old save files with my new save files?

★★★ Novice

So I changed computers, from a mac to a PC. I thought I had lost my hard drive with my old saves so I started playing a new game. However, a month later, I found the hard drive. I tried looking up on how to combine old save files with my new save files but to no avail. May I get some help, please? Thanks!

Re: How do I combine my old save files with my new save files?

@MrsMunchies99  Are you trying to make your old saves accessible, or trying to play your old and new sims within the same save?  If you just want to play your old saves, their files are located in the Saves folder inside Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.  Save files can be transferred between computers, even between different operating systems; you just need to put them in the Saves folder on your new computer.


You may need to rename some of the saves you're moving, or some of your new ones.  Each save is named, with x being a number or letter a-f.  (The ones with .ver0 through .ver4 on the end are backups of the same saves.)  Change the number to something else, so you don't have multiple saves with the same name, and they should all be available to load from the Main Menu.


If you want all your sims in the same saves, you'll need to save them to your in-game library and place them in the new saves.  You may also need to cheat to restore their household funds, so make a note of how much they have, plus the cost of their house, before you save them.


I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
