What is your current game version number? I can't get to main menu without it crashing first
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, Get to Work, City Living, Get Famous, Outdoor Retreat, the selvadorian one, the holiday pack, and the party stuff pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try to get into my game.
What happens when the bug occurs? It gets almost to the main menu, then immediately crashes.
What do you expect to see? The plumbob swirl, then the home screen on my desktop.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.

Not sure what that means, as I'm pretty useless when it comes to tech. I use a MacBook air, and it's pretty old. I've had the sims 4 for a few years, and this is the first time I've had problems with it. I deleted all my custom content, if that helps.


Thank you for your help.

Please can you provide more information about your Mac. Instructions on how to do so and what to provide here -

Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
