    It's been awhile since I've played and used to play on a PC. Now I'm looking to use my old macbook pro to potentially play but unsure if/how well it will work. I've read the minimum system requirements but computer specs isn't really my language. This what I have:
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011)
    OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6
    Processor 2.3GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Graphics Intel HD Graphics 3000 384MB

    If it makes a difference, I do plan on restoring my computer back to factory setting first. Thank you!!

    I posted this on a different thread but it's prolly better suited here..

    Can someone tell me if these are ok?

    iMac Mid 2011
    Version 10.13.2 (up to date)
    Processor is 2.7 Ghz Intel Core i5
    Memory is 20GB
    Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512MB (this is what I'm most concerned about)

    Hey friends, what are your Sims 4 application sizes? Is 27GB normal??
    My game has been really laggy these past few months, and I'm wondering if the file size is contributing to that..

    @NativeBeautyx3 should be ok on medium settings.

    @cheeriofreak I have all packs to date installed and mine is also 27Gb. How big is the Sims 4 folder in Documents > Electronic Arts? If your game is laggy lower your graphics settings. If you have high poly CC remove it as it can cause huge lag if your Mac doesn't have powerful graphics.

    @BluebellFlora my folder is 1.33GB, and I don’t have any CC or Mods installed
    Any advice on things I should look for/delete from the folder?? Ideally I'd like to de-clutter those folders, but idk where to start!

    If you have no CC/Mods then your Saves folder is probably quite big, 1.33Gb is a lot. Check the screenshots folder too.

    @BluebellFlora deleting the screenshots now! In terms of save games, what’s your recommendation for clearing out space??

    Hi, need help! I stopped using cc because my game was tremendously slow, so I removed cc and mods and turned down my graphics settings, I'm playing in windowed mode always, I never have a cache to clear, or videos so idk what the problem is. It runs really fast in cas, but in live and build mode it's so slow. When I click on an object or person it takes a couple seconds to load. When I click on the interaction it takes like 15 seconds to go into the queue. I have a MacBook Air and it's really frustrating. Help!!

    MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2015)
    Processor 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Graphics Intel HD Graphics 6000 1536 MB
    macOSX High Sierra
    Storage 19.25 GB (4.32 GB purgeable)

    Try repairing both Origin and the game itself. Also try restarting your computer. Something may be running in the background.

    I need help!!
    When the game updates, I always take my mods out of my folder and put them back.
    When I had the latest update, I put my mods back, restarted the game and ticked 'allow mods'
    But the mods that were applied to my sims eg. eyelashes/makeup (all of that) disappeared on my sims.
    (but they still come up in the editing your sims in CAS)
    I cannot be bothered to go through all of my sims and re-apply all of the CC that I had previously placed on them.
    I have tried everything ?
    -Restarted the game
    -I got my saved sims from the gallery- the CC is on the saved sims, but it doesn't show up in in CAS (Maybe i saved it twice? Is that possible)
    Also, for example, careers wise, if I were to replace the CC free sim to the saved CC sim (from my personal gallery) the career would be restarted (which makes sense, but I just want the CC that was on the Sims to BE THERE)
    -Sorted out ALL of my 500+ mods and put them in folders, added them back to electronic arts mods folder one at a time....
    -Got rid of bad CC/Mods

    Computer: Mac OS Sierra :)

    If I may make a suggestion, please do not post the same post in multiple threads. Once is fine and we will answer you as soon as we see the post. :)
