★★★★ Novice

Re: Sims 3 Late Night - Unknown error

@vliene  I'm guessing "luxury accessories" is the equivalent of High-End Loft Stuff, since it sounds similar and the names of the packs change depending on language and region.  If this is a different pack though, please list its release date so I can look up which one it is—if it's a newer pack, there will be an extra step necessary to fix the unknown error.


Assuming we're talking about the same pack though, you might only need one step to fix the problem.  Just create an alias (icon) for Late Night in Applications, alongside the alias for the base game.  This is simple:


If this alone doesn't help, please run the Super Patch (digital download version) to manually patch the game.


If that doesn't work either, there may be another required ste: adding your graphics card to the game's files.  For instructions specific to your card, please list the specs of your Mac, as described in this post:
