The links to the manual patches for the Mac version of Sims 3 are all dead. If anyone has the digital version of the patch on their Mac PLEASE let me know, specifically the patch for the digital version of the game. It will be Region 17 and look like this:
The file with the .tar extension is the download, the file with the plumbob is the extracted patch.
I don’t yet know whether the game is still updatable through the Launcher. Again, if anyone has confirmation before I get a chance to test this myself please let me know. In the meantime I’m searching old drives for the patches myself.
