Sims 3 Ensure Your Internet Connection.

★★★★ Novice

Hi,

 

So today i tried to install the sims 3 + world adventures onto my new macbook air 2017 (13 inch) .

 

I've updated to macOS Mojave

version 10.14.4

 

 

And i've tried a couple of things, but nothing seems to work..

 

 

Pc Specs:

Processor: 1,8 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Videocard: Intel HD Graphics 6000 1536 MB

I fixed the problem myself.
followed your steps with the paul.dll file for the base game + world adventures. That worked for the base game + world adventures.
After that i installed ambitions.
Then i got the ''unknown error'' from the base game.
I went into the applications folder.
I copied The Sims 3 Ambitions folder from: the sims 3/contents/resources/addons/the sims 3 ambitions/contents/resources/transgaming/c_drive/program files/electronic arts/ I copied that folder.
Then i went into the applications folder again.
The Sims 3/The Sims 3/contents/resources/transgaming/c_drive/program files/electronic arts/ i pasted Ambitions into there.
And it worked again!
Going to try other expansions too.

@KelBoe123  This is an old issue that's recently resurfaced.  But the old workaround still fixes the problem.  Please see this post for directions:
