I have macOS Mojave beta installed and so far Sims 3 is still loading and playable.
I did get the following dialogue box stating that the game will stop working at some point with a future version of macOS, not dissimilar to the one currently popping up in High Sierra and linking to the same Apple support page:
I also tried Sims 4 and was surprised to get a similar dialogue box. Origin and Sims 4 are already 64-bit so this message shouldn’t be popping up:
I really have no idea what software this dialogue box is referring to. If anyone has any idea please share, it would be great to know 🙂
I’ll keep testing after each build is released and report any changes here.
Seasons is finally coming to the Sims 4 and I am SO looking forward to it!
This isn’t a news site but I thought this was definitely worth a mention. I’m also interested in how this will perform on older Macs and those with lower specs. so when it’s released I’d love to hear your comments. You can get your sticky little mitts on this little beauty on the 22nd June!
Lots of reports of CC and Mods not showing up in game recently so I thought a reminder on where your Sims 4 user data folder must be located may help.
Many of you install the game on an external drive to save space on your internal storage. Whilst this is fine and easy enough to do via Origin (Origin > Preferences > Installs & Saves > Game Library Location), you cannot do this with your user data folder. This is the Sims 4 folder that contains your saves, CC/Mods, screenshots, game settings, tray items and more. This folder must be located on your internal drive, the full file path should be Macintosh HD > Users > (your Mac user account name) > Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4. You can check this file path by clicking on your Mods folder, holding down CMD and pressing i to bring up the info window for the folder:
Your internal storage may have a different name if you have renamed it, partitioned your drive, reformatted it, replaced it or are booting up from an external drive with a version of macOS installed. If you have iCloud Drive enabled you must not have it set to store your Documents folder in the cloud as the game will not be able to find it and will create a new folder each time you launch it. For help with this please read this article.
The CC/Mods you use must meet the following criteria:
- be only unzipped/extracted .package files placed in the Mods folder. You can create your own sub folders within the Mods folder and place the package files in those folders if you like.
- Sims 4 CC/mods only
If you download CC in RAR, 7-Zip or another compressed format that your Mac cannot extract please read this article for further help.
