Installing CC for Ultimate Collection (purchased through App Store)

Hi everyone,
So I bought UC through the app store last week and I've been trying to install CC since but haven't worked out a way to do that.
Because its installed through the app store the usual folders (EA Games> Sims 2> Downloads) aren't in my documents so I can't just simply place files in a downloads folder.
I've downloaded the package installed but have no idea how that works and when I've tried to get it to work it hasn't.
Any help would be amazing,
Thank you xo

    The app store? Are you on Mac? That would be the super collection not UC. I did a little digging and I think this thread has the answers you are looking for.

    Ooh I know this one! If it's for the Super Collection on Mac, it's a pretty convoluted path to get there but it IS possible. I've installed loads of old CC and mods and they all work perfectly even though it's an updated version.

    Let's see if I get this right, here's how you get there for me:

    Go to FINDER-->

    Click on you name on the left hand column-->

    You will need to click on a folder called "Library". (I believe on Macs this is hidden by default so in Finder you will need to activate "Show Hidden Folders" if "Library" is not appearing, I'm so sorry I can't remember at the moment how you do that since I'm pretty computer illiterate but Google will help!)-->

    Containers-->

    com.aspyr.sims2.appstore-->

    Data-->

    Library-->

    Application Support-->

    Aspyr-->

    The Sims 2-->

    Downloads--> Put your CC here! (This folder should already be there, if it isn't just make a folder called "Downloads" with a capital D)


    Phew, that was a long way to get to that folder. That's how it is on my computer and I believe it should be similar on other Macs. Let me know if it works for you!
