Hello, and welcome to te forum,  Very Happy
here on forum so much Mac users, so we can't provide official support, but here are few guides that can help you install The Sims 3 on Mac.

You will have to create .dmg files of The Sims 3 and expansions files in order to install it, it's well explained and shown in this tutorial: http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/Sims_3_Mac_Guide.pdf
Follow this guide and it should be effective. 

Also you'll see that creating .dmg files can be sooooo long, so here you have a tutorial on how to do it really fast : http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21599-hdiutil-easy-mass-disk-image-creation

Hope it helps!
Also, if you have any morequestion feel free to ask.  Wink

Ok, I'll start from the beginning...
I did all steps from: "*MUST READ* How to install The Sims 3 correctly"
And it's still not working.
I downloaded and install The Sims 3 from games4theworld
I downloaded a manual patch for mac users (of course)
I install all EP's and SP's.
I download Ultimate Fix and paste the crack from the "# Crack" folder into: Contents/Resources/trangaming/c_Drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin/
And i can't start the game!
Please HELP ME! Why God.SadHelpNoobI'm new here.Crying or Very sad

What error you get? Can you write exact text that pops up?

Did you previously installed The Sims 3, either from G4TW or other uploader?
Other than that try reapplying Manual Patch and Ultimate Fix.





Mod edit: moved to Mac Support.

I installed The Complete Collection from G4TW and i did all of this steps from MrKimiko guide:
 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!"

It works but when I play The Sims 3 for an hour I see this: "Exception Raised, unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000014 at address 0x1029760b"

Ayo.
I recommend downloading this version on piratesbay " The Sims 3 Complete (Eng - Mac OS X)" (I downloaded this file, and I'm currently using it)
It has most expansions already installed up to Generation I believe.

If you want to install other EP please do follow my instruction below:


--I figured out how to make the sims work + updating + installing the other expansions via games4world--

1. Download this torrent
2. Download games4world Ultimate Fix (make sure it's up to date)
3. Update the sims 3 via Launcher (when it ask you to update, cancel it and then force update it)
4. Follow the instruction in the Ultimate Fix
--if having trouble--
-Go to the #Crack Folder
- Copy the two files
-Paste the 2 files in the destination folder in the instruction guide.

--Congratz! you just update your sims! It should work and you will have no problem with 'no cd" message…


How to install other expansions:
-------------------------------------
/ make sure install the expansion in order!!/

1. Follow the guide in games4world converting it into the .dmg
2. Install the expansions
3. Use the #Crack that was provided in the expansions folder that was part of the download
4. Open Launcher (Check if the expansion was successfully installed!DO NOT PLAY!!!!) if not, try to reinstall.
5. Close Launcher
6. Now use the crack in the #Crack folder in the Ultimate Fix you download from Games4world.
7. Done! Happy playing!
