Glass vase and jar CC not showing correctly in game

Since the Cats & Dogs patches there have been various reports of some CC glass vases and jars not displaying properly in game:

So far I’ve only seen reports from Mac users but it may be affecting Windows users too. This is apparently happening because EA changed something glass related in the November patch. If you are experiencing this there is no fix at the moment that I know of. Either EA need to fix something or the CC creators do.

Leave a comment below if you are also experiencing this, Mac or Windows 🙂

Sims 3 Expansion and Stuff Packs not showing as installed on a Mac

If you’re having issues after installing Ambitions, Late Night, Fast Lane and/or Outdoor Living it’s because the installer has not added the relevant add-on pack shortcut to the Sims 3 Application folder. I’ve written a detailed guide here on how to fix this. It takes a while but is worth doing and you should be up and running with your game again 🙂

Mac ‘Initialization error at start up’ since patch 1.24

Patch 1.24.102.1220 has been released but lots of Mac users are reporting that their games will not load. They are getting the following error message –

initializationerror

Initialization error at start up.

The numbers in bold uniquely identify this issue. EA are aware of it and hopefully addressing it. In the meantime the workaround is to simply press any key to skip through the intro videos. There are main threads for this over at AHQ and the officials:

Edit – that was quick! EA have already released an update to fix the issue (28/10/16) 😀
