Thank you! I think this is the issue. I have a 2011 Mac and it says it's not compatible. Thank you so much for your help!

SIMS4_decorator pack not working

★★★ Newbie

Running Sims 4 legacy and have bought a few game packs recently: including 'dream home decorator'. Running it through Origin on a Mac. It says we have it installed, receipt/invoice says payed for. Clues? Have read it might not be compatible with our version of Sims 4....Mac has running High Sierra 10.13.6

Thanks!

@Unicoi6969

Dream Home Decorator is not compatible with the Legacy version of the game as it requires a Metal compatible Mac. Please see the opening post on page 1 of this FAQ thread for more info.

The expansion packs for sims 4 are downloaded but won't open.

★★★ Newbie

I have tried to uninstall everything (even origin) and repaired the game many times, but the new expansion packs won't open. My Mac is updated, the game is updated. What to to? Some of my expansion packs will work, but the one marked in red won't.

Re: The expansion packs for sims 4 are downloaded but won't open.

@Stinewold

Thanks. You are running the Legacy Edition of the game because your Mac is not Metal compatible. Discover University and Country Living are not compatible with the Legacy Edition. I've merged your thread into this stickied one in the forum. Please see the opening post which has a list of commonly asked questions and explains the Legacy Edition of the game in more detail.

If you want to play the up to date version of the game which supports all packs released since October/November 2019, you will need to get a new Mac.

Thank you so much for the help! It's about time I buy a new Mac...

I downloaded

★★★ Newbie

I downloaded Cottage Life and it shows that I have it installed and unlocked, but will not show up that I have it in my Sims game. No new items or anything. I've restarted my computer and Origin. I'm playing on a Mac. Help?
