Store updates are installed by opening the zip files with an associated program like StuffIt Expander. Mac should be able to associate that compressed file (usually .rar) and open it by itself. The folder will be created in the same directory that the compressed file was in, by default. You then have to open every folder and drag the files (.pack files, I think) to Documents->Electronic Arts->Downloads.

DO NOT PUT FOLDERS INTO THE DOWNLOADS FOLDER. Other wise, it will not work.

Once you've added them into your "Downloads" folder, open up the Sims 3 Launcher and click "Downloads." Check every file that you want installed and a new screen will pop up with a loading bar. Wait, and the files will be installed in your game.

Have fun!
