Problem after Origin reset

★★ Newbie

Hello everyone,

 

I couldn't open Origin since the beginning of the week so I followed the steps to reset it and it worked. My game updated afterwards for 30 minutes and I finally could launch it. However, this appeared to me (screen cap linked).

 

I have absolutely no CC. My computer is a brand new Mac I got three months ago. Can somebody help me?

  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.

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