Been trying to install The Sims 3 multiple times on my new Macbook. It was a new purchase and install. It always gets to the same point on the install and freezes (usually with 43 seconds remaining). Have tried to download and install many times. Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix it?
@Bluebellflora please and thank you in advance

In Origin go to Origin > Preferences > Advanced and click on Browse game installers. Delete any installers there then manually check for any installed files. Once you've done that try downloading again
Please bear in mind that Sims 3 is not compatible on newer Macs due to the graphics cards not being supported. See this stickied thread on post-2013 Macs - http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/Mac-Issues-playing-on-newer-post-2013-Macs/td-p/4935394
Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
