Another issue that’s cropped up for Mac users. When trying to download and install University Life they are being notified that the EP has not yet been released. This seems to be related to specific product codes when purchased through Origin.
If you are experiencing this please contact EA customer support to request a replacement code or wait for EA to hopefully release a fix through Origin.
Yep, in the December patch all you Windows users on supported machines will be able to finally play The Sims 4 in shiny new 64-bit. This means that when you’re playing in your heavily populated town which has mega mansions on all lots and families of at least 55 people living in each bedroom, your game shouldn’t, in theory, crash.
If you currently only have 4GB RAM in your 64 bit PC, now is the time to upgrade as you really won’t notice a difference otherwise.
This is way more important than toddlers. You want to know why? Because as the years go on and EA release more Expansion, Game and Stuff Packs and you download them eagerly, your game will gradually slow down and buckle under all the memory needed for all your little Simmies to fly to the moon, have a poo, go swimming, woohoo in the garden etc. etc. But with access to more RAM, your game will fly.
In other breaking news, EA have announced that the patch will also include an update which automatically disables Mods when the game updates. That will be helpful to all you stupid people who never move your Mods out before updating then wonder why your game doesn’t work. Yes, I’m also stupid as I sometimes forget to move them out too :D
I’m not sure if this is a Mac specific issue so I’m just throwing it out there.
If you are trying to download University Life for the Sims 3 but can’t because Origin is telling you it hasn’t yet been released, please post in this thread over at EA’s Answers HQ. It seems to be an issue with the latest update – 184.108.40.20663 – 398079.
It doesn’t seem to be operating system related. but the more info EA get the better so they can (hopefully) fix it.
