What is your current game version number? I don't know but I've just updated it.

Hi. I have been playing the Sims 4 since February and over the past summer, after an update, my gallery will not work. It says I'm offline but I'm not. I've checked my internet and that is fine. What do I do? Someone please help.

@SimmerAbby03 do you also have Origin running, and can you tell if that is in online mode or offline too? Maybe you have a firewall blocking The Sims 4 from connecting to the Internet?

Please can you provide more information about your Mac. Instructions on how to do so and what to provide here - http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/READ-FIRST-Sims-4-Mac-Help-Guides-and-Troubleshooting/m-p/4612...

 

Could you also please run the Origin reset tool and see if that helps - https://help.ea.com/en-gb/help/origin/origin/how-to-reset-origin-on-mac/

I tried the origin reset tool and it did nothing. I have a version. 10.14.3, MacBook Air (13-inch, early 2015) 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 is the processor. I have 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 for my memory. I have Intel HD Graphics 6000 1536 MB. I play the normal version of the game. I am not running an antivirus anymore. I have tried repair game but it hasn't done anything. I used to use CC and Mods but I deleted them ages ago.

Update your OS to 10.14.6 and see if that helps. You can do so through System Preferences.

You don't need to update to Catalina, just update Mojave to the last updated version which is 10.14.6.
