I've moved your post to the Mac forum.

 

Sims 4 - try this:

 

  1. In your Applications folder right click on the Sims 4 app and select Show Package Contents.
  2. Navigate to Contents > Mac OS.
  3. Right click on The Sims 4 and select Move to Trash. Don't drag the file as it will only move an alias and leave the original in place. If there is another file in the folder, The Sims 4.par, leave it alone.
  4. Now open Origin, click on The Sims 4 in your Games Library and click on Download.

Sims 3 - Please read this thread and follow the instructions to apply the workaround to your game - https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/CURRENT-ISSUE-Sims-3-Unknown-Error-in-El-Capitan-Sierra-High/...

 

The Sims 3 Mac stickied help thread will also give you more tips on how to properly play the game and why issues arise - https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/READ-FIRST-Sims-3-Mac-Help-Guides-and-Troubleshooting/m-p/749...



Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
