Sims 3 on Mac - Can't add expansion packs or play

Post by MrDalek1999 on Sun 07 Jan 2018, 02:45

Hey guys so I downloaded the complete collection from the downloads page and followed the most up to date guide from this website about how to make it work on a mac. After a few goes I finally got the DMG install files working and I've installed the base game. However when I go to add World Adventures because it's the first dlc and it was recommended to do it in order, I got to almost the end of the installation and it told me that my version of the game was not compatible with the expansion. I tried to load up the base game and even tried installing the crack but I can't even open the game. Can anyone give me some assistance in both loading all of the expansion packs onto my game and actually making it work. 
The help is much appreciated guys

Hello MrDalek1999, and welcome to G4TW forum!

This is so because your game wasn't patched. If you downloaded the complete collection, then you must patch the game to 1.67 which is in # Crack folder, before you can install any EP/SP. After you install World Adventures or anything else, DO NOT follow the installation guide. Just copy the serial from installation guide and you're good to go. You don't need to crack again.

Thank you so much dude!
Do I need to start up the game after installing the update or do I just go straight into downloading expansions? Cause I've done exactly what was recommended above and it's still saying the version is different and when I open the application there is just a blank screen where the welcome should be and when I click the play button it just closes the application. Anyone know the fix for this?

Yes, go straight into downloading expansions. You can download as many as you want, but only one is required. After the installation go and crack the game in the base game folder and play/

Literally no matter what I do, it is telling me that the game is out of date. I have added the patch and update as well as just the update and neither are actually working. 
Can someone guide me through exactly what I need to do step by step please because I have been trying to get this for nearly 5 days!

Hello @MrDalek1999,

I moved your post (to the right section). Please note that nowadays we cannot really give any Mac OS-related support anymore, because the current team does not have much knowledge about this, and the former Mac Helpers/Moderators have long left the Forum.

What we can offer you is the latest available "Mac guide" here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t29480-new-the-sims-3-mac-guide-out-now

Other than that; I'm afraid I can't say more. I'm sorry. WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Hello,
Can you Please Help me too. 
I have all the expansions of Sims 3 downloaded from this site, I never had any problems. Thank you for that. Yess, aye lieeke! But it was on Windows. Just 2 days ago I purchased iMac, and now I am in big troubles. I already tried to install and uninstall the game 4 times, even had to restore MacOS to it's factory settings:(  Please Help me. 

I did so many mistakes, now I am trying to start for the last time but please correct me if I am wrong.
    1. I downloaded Base Game from the Origin, and updated to version 1.67 from the installer.
    2. Downloaded World Adventure and converted unzipped folder to DMG format.
    3. Install World Adventure to....(Applications/Sims 3 created by Installed game from Origin or to User/Applications....e.t.s?)
    4.Aply Ultimate Fix version 1.69..

And if it works I will download all the Expansions the same way, and Ultimate Fix again?

Thanks

Hello,

there's no way we can help as G4TW version of TS3 is not compatible with Origin one.

Thank you for your reply. 
So, I will have to uninstall it from the Origin and download The Sims 3: The Complete Collection?
