fixed my own problem, you have to use stuffit expander.  soon as i used that instead of macs default unzip program, it worked perfectly.  i installed the expansion the way it was explained, although it is now crashing now before the sims 3 prompt comes up.  working on that now

Weird why you have to use that. I'm currently re-downloading the torrent now so I can actually use the stuffit expander.

The Sims Plumbob 1 Best Mac Guide
1. Download The Complete Sims 3 Torrent
2. Use the Mac Guide (Part 2-3)
3. Before the expansion packs: Can't update The Sims 3 to v1.67 fix. (Manual patch)
4. Install the expansion and stuff packs that you would want.
5. Use the Mac Guide (Part 4) and Ultimate Fix together in unison.
6. "Launch the game and... enjoy playing!"


In my opinion one of the best guides to use for a Mac user. It works. I will let you know once I'm finished with step five.

i did eventually get mine to work about a week ago.  I'm not sure where i was going wrong at first.  i eventually just started from scratch.

couple things i will note.  i started with the original version, i bought it digitally a few years ago.  so i wasn't using the torrent version of the base game.  
i thought that meant i wouldn't have to touch the base game, but thats incorrect.  you do have to use the ultimate fix on the base game.  It seems counterintuitive to alter legally purchased game, but that is the case.

other than that, i followed the directions basically to the T and it worked.  the post above mine is really a good basis on how to get it to work.
