[Mac] Stuck on loading screen in Sims 3?

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

My game was working fine with no expansion packs, but now that I got a couple expansion packs it won't work. If you know the game, then you know that after you click the play button it opens up to a blue screen with the sims logo, then goes full screen. Mine is stuck on the blue screen with the logo. Just to make sure it was really frozen and wasn't working slowly, I left it on that and it stayed up all night. This is on on my Mac.

Is your Mac one of the ones listed in this stickied thread -

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