How to enable testing cheats for Sims 3 on PC and Mac

In fact, I checked the date three or four times to make sure today wasn't April Fools. It's very good to see EA putting some effort into making the mess of game that TS3 for Mac has become continue to work.

But I'm not reading where they are really making a bit version of the game no matter how they refer to it. Forgive me for being skeptical, but what they might be doing is tricking the current 2 GB limited mess into running in a bit only environment. But if they have really, over ten years later now, finally decided that the crippled Cider implementation that had been holding the Mac version of the game back all this time was not worth trying to service anymore and they really are spinning up a redo, that would be a fascinating turn of events. It is also totally not clear what patch level this game will be at and how tight the Origin control will be, thus leaving open the possibility that mods intended for 1.

But I'm now looking forward to playing the Mac version of the game again to see what this thing they are creating is gonna do or not do once it's released. It's tough to say honestly. I feel as though EA is only doing this because a fair amount of people still prefer TS3, and they could potentially be losing money since it's still pretty popular. Also, Apple has made it clear for some time now that they're catering to people who can afford to pay premium price for their products. So, it makes sense for them to go bit since Macs aren't known for gaming in the first place.

Windows, on the other hand still has in incredibly large and varied ecosystem. Not only with gaming, but business as well. And backwards compatibility is still a concern for both. Gaming, because there are still many older games out there that run on 32 bit architecture, some of which will probably never be updated to support 64 bit.


And businesses because many of them have been running on a 32 bit infrastructure for years and it would be a fairly big and costly endeavor to update everything they're running. It's why many companies were still running XP for years after Microsoft was done with it. It's also not clear when Microsoft would drop 32 bit support if assuming they do so in the near future.

Which, again, I don't see happening. If it ever does happen, it would probably be pretty far off from now, long after TS3 would be profitable for them to update. You have been chosen. This is forum is origin not steam and they dont mix. From what I heard steam does not sell the Mac version but double check with steam. You may be able to transfer your steam to origin but you would have to contact EA directly for that.
