Re: The Sims 4 Legacy Edition thread

@kauling4  I've merged your post into the master thread for the Mac Legacy Edition.

 

To answer your questions, Discover University doesn't run in the LE.  If you don't have another computer on which to play it, you may want to get a refund.

Online features of TS4 are not available either.  That includes the Gallery and the ability to get information about packs or worlds you don't own from the in-game menu.

@spencer10jax I'm going assume you have the 13" Macbook Air. The specs are at: https://support.apple.com/kb/SP678?locale=en_US

According to that your GPU is an Intel HD Graphics 5000. You should be able to get Metal support on that Mac by install macOS El Capital (10.11) or newer. At that point you will not be required to run the Legacy Edition. You MUST use a version of macOS that support Metal, and you must use it on hardware that supports Metal. Your current configuration supports one of these two requirements.

online not working sims 4

★★ Newbie

Aside from my sims 4 will not allow me to go online, nor use the community gallery, it also will not allow me to play the discover university expansion pack after having purchased it. I have tried to repair the game and update it over 20 times, as well as having risked losing all of my progress and deleting my origin app on my mac to redownload it. I’m not sure what else I can do, I really am losing my patience.

Re: The Sims 4 Legacy Edition thread

@dphie510  I've merged your post with the master thread on the Sims 4 Legacy Edition, which it sounds like you have.  The LE does not support the Gallery or any other online features, and Discover University won't run in it.

I'm having the same issue!

 

I pre-ordered University and Origin says it downloaded, but now it won't show up on my home-screen...

 

Does anyone know what to do?
