macOS 10.14 Mojave – Sims 3 and Sims 4 update

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.

Tamamaro Sims 4 Plant Light Recolour

I’ve always loved this simple plant light but wanted a few more lighter colours. I chose marble and stone textures and added in a ceramic and gold too.

Unfortunately Tamamaro’s original CC plant light no longer seems to be available online, I have uploaded their original so my recolours will place in game and you can enjoy their lovely original colours too. You can find a viewable link on the Sims 4 Updates page here.

You will also need the The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff Pack installed for this light to place.

Sims 4 will not update in Origin for Mac

If your game will not update in Origin then you need to perform a ‘super’ repair. This super repair is also great for fixing, amongst other things, the following issues:

  • Greyed out Play or Install button in Origin
  • Game bouncing up and down in the Dock but not loading
  • Error messages appearing when trying to update.

To perform the repair do the following:

  1. In your Applications folder right click on the Sims 4 app and select Show Package Contents.
  2. Navigate to Contents > Mac OS.
  3. Right click on The Sims 4 and select Move to Trash. Don’t drag the file as it will only move an alias and leave the original in place. If there is another file in the folder, The Sims 4.par, leave it alone.
  4. Now open Origin, click on The Sims 4 in your Games Library and click on Download.

Your game should now be up to date. This fix can be applied as many times as needed.
