Sims 4 Get To Work Get Together and City Living not working Mac Wineskin

Post by ssamgyupsal on Sat 1 Apr - 17:36

Hi! I'm on a Macbook Pro 2011 El Capitan
So I downloaded Sims 4 from somewhere before, but it only has Get to work and get together, there wasnt even dine out. Since there's already a torrent for City Living i got excited and tried to play Sims 4 with all of the packs with wineskin. The game works but there aren't any expansion packs installed at all.

I did the instructions from here (the guide to playing sims 4 using wine) and copy & merged all files starting from GTW GTG then CL. At first the game wont play, it was displaying an error saying something about a new version of sims 4. I found a solution to that ina thread here. (I deleted the .ini file in bin) and it worked, the game started up. But I was a bit weirded out since nothing was popping up on the main menu, once I played there were no extra items and there were only 3 neighborhoods to choose from.

I really want to play City Living, if someone has a solution please tell me. Thanks!

I begin my "Sims journey" playing on my Macbook Pro via Wineskin as well and usually if this ever happened to me it was because of an issue when copying folders. As I'm sure a lot of people would agree, this is the most frustrating part but once you understand it then it's a piece of cake   Smile 

Unfortunately, compared to Windows, merging files on a Mac creates these problems so it's MUCH better to copy and paste/replace, and it's also extremely important not to just copy the main folders (i.e. "Data", "Game" etc.), but to go into every individual folder and copy and replace those to the main game directory.

If you want to get it all right then the best option is to try again (starting with "Get To Work", then "Get Together", and then "City Living"). 

I hope this makes sense...if it doesn't, or if you're still having issues then just reply and I'd be happy to help! Best of luck!
