The Sims 4: How To Transfer Sims from Demo to Full Game

Here we’ll explain for The Sims 4 how to transfer Sims from Demo to Full Game. If you’ve played The Sims 4: Create A Sim Demo before The Sims 4 release this week, you may want to transfer / import the Sims you spent a lot of time creating as a family to the full retail game.

METHOD #1: This is the easy way to export your Sims from the Demo and then import them in the full game:
Step 1: Upload the created Sims from the The Sims 4: Create A Sim Demo to the in-game Gallery. While playing the Demo, the button to access the Gallery can be found in the top-right corner when you’re in the Create A Sim area.
Step 2: After uploading them in the Demo, you will now have your Sims available to you when you start the Full Game. While in the Create A Sim area of the game, simply go to the Gallery again and select the Sims you want to import.
Step 3: You’ve selected the Sims from the Demo correctly when you get a message asking “Merge Household? Would you like to replace or merge with the household you are currently editing?” and then select “Merge” to make your Sims appear in The Sims 4. Easy does it!

In this video Stephanie shows you how to transfer Sims from the Demo to The Sims 4 full game, using the Gallery feature:

METHOD #2: Alternately, if you no longer have access to the Demo but still have all the files from it on your computer. Then you can manually transfer your Sims between folders on your computer. Take these steps to do it successfully:
Step 1: Find the game files for The Sims 4: Create A Sim Demo in this folder:
Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 CAS Demo > Tray
Step 2: Copy the contents of the in Step 1 listed Demo folder to this folder for the Full Game:
Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Tray

I hope this helped you keep all your favorite Sims from the demo.
