[Mac] Patch Notes: October 23rd, 2019

EA Desktop Team

Update 10/23/2019 - 1.56.55.1220

Hey Simmers!

Small but important update for macOS players. Catalina players have had a bit of a rough time thanks to some changes in how applications access files. This has made game play a little bumpy. This patch makes things work more reliably for Catalina users!

Additional information:

  • Simmers on macOS 10.15 (Catalina) will be prompted to allow The Sims 4 access to the Documents folder. Grant this request.

One more thing before you jump right into your game:

 

  • If you are playing on macOS Mojave and The Sims 4 is not opening:
    Please, make sure you are running the latest version of Origin (10.5.51.32258). If not, make sure to update Origin as well!

  • If you are playing on macOS Catalina:
    The game will ask you for permission to access Documents folder. If you accidentally press 'Deny', go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Files & Folders -> Find “The Sims 4” in list and tick the “Documents Folder” check box to grant access.
