Sims 3 launcher has suddenly stopped reading Saves folder[Mac]

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

All of a sudden I have started the Sims 3 launcher and my saved games are gone and it's as though I've never played before. My games are still in the Saves folder with no noticeable corruptions.  I started a new game and saved it to try to figure out where the launcher was reading from and I can't find the new games although that now appears in the launcher.  I have searched the whole computer to try and figure out where the new game is saved but can't find it.  I'm using Mac.

 

 

@Bluebellflora   please and thank you in advance

Give your save game a unique name that you can then do a search for on your Mac.

Thanks for reply.  I tried that and it didn't find the file. But it saved somewhere as it's still there when I open launcher.

What do you mean when you say your saves are there when you open the Launcher? Saves don't show up in the Launcher.
