How To Play Sims On Macbook Pro

The Sims 4, both in CD and digital edition, is compatible for Windows and MacOS, just as The Sims 3. I’m running the game on a MacBook Air just fine. The easiest way is to install Origin on your Mac and download the game from there. I’ve done this vice versa - and I got the same result. Well for one, when I did it, the disc wouldn’t come out. My only copy of The Sims 2 Double Deluxe is still stuck inside my (older version of the) MacBook Pro 13.3 Inch from over 5 year.


I am wondering this too!

When I bought my Mac Mini with full specs, I really hoped I would be able to play Sims 3 decently, but it all turned out to be a disaster.

I could not play Sims 3 in MacOS because the game kept crashing, and having sever graphical corruptions. When I started the game in Windows 10, it was playable, but still, I was really disappointed not being able to play the game on more than low-mid-settings.

But, I have learned by my mistakes. When playing Sims 3, the graphics card on your Mac/PC is essential for having a decent gaming-exerience. You may have 16GB of RAM, and an i7 processor, but if your graphics card is not compatible with Sims 3, then you'll not have a decent experience.

I found a list on Mod The Sims showing every compatible graphics cards, so I suggest you check it out there (:

This summer, I will buy a max specd MacBook Pro 2017, I will try to remember your post and come back with some feedback from my experience playing the game (: I have no plans installing Windows on that one too though, I feel Windows is so slow compared with MacOS, at least on my Mac Mini.

Again, I will try to remember your post!

Happy simming 😀 Sul sul 😍
