    @heidi11576 The major bug has been patched (the most recent patch was Mac only and fixed it, you'll need to give TS4 permission to access your Documents folder, it's a pop-up when you first start the game after you have both Catalina and that patch).

    It's been running fine for me since then.

    Hey everyone! You mentioned you wanted to know about this here as well, so heads up that I just posted an update in the AHQ thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/General-Discussion-and-Feedback/The-Sims-4-Update-on-Supported-Systems/m-p/8415105#M17864

    I thought they already required 64 bit on Windows since Cats and Dogs? I know Cats and Dogs require 64-bit windows to run.

    I think they also continued support to those who haven't upgraded to a 64 bit.

    As per the thread that EA_Mai posted, the Legacy Edition that has been provided for 32-bit users will allow all EPs, GPs and SPs that were released prior to DU to be installed and played, whether it will play them well is another matter.

    @lacyk On 64-bit you should be good without the Legacy Edition - are you getting an error message asking you to download it?
    If so, right click on the game, then go to Properties and on Advanced Launch Options make sure 64-bit is selected.

    I also got a message in origin telling me that the legacy edition is available after the update. It appeared in a banner at the top above the games I have. But I have a 64 bit windows 10 laptop. I ignored the message, booted up the game and played just fine with the update. I clicked the message in origin away with the x button in the top right corner. I thought it was just a message to inform people that the legacy edition is available.
