Sims 4 Community Gallery Issue

★★ Newbie

I am above the legal age and I think my origin account is online, but I cannot access the community gallery in Sims 4. How can I fix this? And how I can make sure my origin is online?

Yes unfortunately so. The Legacy Edition has no online functionality Frown you will need to be on a Metal compatible Mac to play the current version of the game and have access to the Gallery.

Are you running the Legacy Edition of the game because your Mac is a 2011 or older model that does not support Metal?

@Bluebellflora Yes I am. Does this affect me being able to access the community gallery?

The Legacy Edition stickied thread should help you - https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-Mac/The-Sims-4-Legacy-Edition-thread/td-p/8420037

Your Mac cannot run the current version of the game, only the Legacy Edition.
