I've moved your post to the Mac forum.
Sims 4 - try this:
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.
