If you are using the 64 bit version of The Sims 2 Complete Collection, I wanted to note that they changed the paths somewhat.

For the 64 bit version the path is Contents/Assets/Expansion Packs

Complete instructions for installing CEP in Sims2 Super Collection Mac for the 64 Bit Version.

a) _EnableColorOptionsGMND.package:
Place the file "_EnableColorOptionsGMND.package" into your Sims Downloads folder:
~/Library/Containers/com.aspyr.sims2.appstore/Data/Library/Application Support/Aspyr/The Sims 2/Downloads

b) _EnableColorOptionsMMAT.package:
Open the Applications folder, then RIGHT CLICK The Sims 2 app, and select "Show package contents"
Navigate then to Contents/Assets/TSData/Res/Sims3D/
Place the file "_EnableColorOptionsMMAT.package" in that folder.

c) "Extra" folder:
Open it and you will find 2 subfolders, "MyDocuments" and "ProgramFiles".

c1) Open the "MyDocuments" folder and move the entire "zCEP-EXTRA" subfolder, along with the several files contained in it to:
Applications folder-->TheSims2-->"Show package contents"-->Contents/
c2) Open the "ProgramFiles" folder and move the entire "zCEP-EXTRA" subfolder, along with the several files contained in to:
Applications folder-->TheSims2-->"Show package contents"-->Contents/Assets/TSData/Res/CATALOG

CEP works fine as far as I can tell, once it is installed using these instructions

Well even though I missed most of the Spam that was tossed here, I do like to hang out here and I very glad that Jenna and TheRaven are both still around. They make the place feel homey.

Anyone else Huge Monty Python's Flying Circus Fans here?

12  Welcome to / The Welcome Wagon / Re: Hello :) on: April 06, 2020, 12:16:06 pm
Good to See all of you.

I am here most every day, I mostly check the Mac section to see if someone has posted a reply to one of my several posts there or if someone has made a new post there. Otherwise I do check to see what activity there is on the Main Page, but I don't do that often ...Maybe once a week, maybe less than that, don't know.

If you do want my attention for some reason don't hesitate to PM me.

Please Everyone take care and try to stay healthy.

Note: you should have Show all filename extensions checked to On. Otherwise you can get confused about the filename extensions and with what we are doing having the correct extension is critical. So make sure that you are set to Show all filename extensions.

I am fairly certain that you may need to keep the files that you create in someplace normally accessible Like the Desktop for example and then run the Terminal before you place the files in their proper place.

Then Make sure that you then place the files in the Correct Directory, I know it is confusing but the Mac has 3 Different Library Folders and it sounds like you might have put the files in the wrong place.

Update: I tried to see if the files are in the correct directory running sudo chmod 644 and with both it says "No such file or directory" like the mac doesn't read that at all. I tried to run launchctl limit and like @bourgeoisbanana said, nothing has changed.

At least according to what you wrote. I think that is the problem.

On my Mac the correct path is <Mac's Hard Drive Name>/Library/LaunchDaemons

On your Mac when you look inside the <Mac's Hard Drive Name>/Library/ do you see a Folder named "LaunchDaemons"?

Do let me know on this.

If so then Apple did not change the file structure {I don't expect that they would it would mean more than a few Popular Apps would have to be fixed if they did}. So you need to put the files in the <Mac's Hard Drive Name>/Library/LaunchDaemons folder and I would do it after you have run the chown commands on them in Terminal and then checked them...See Section below on that part.

Note: If you don't have and use Shell Files just ignore that section, it is for those who use Shell Files. If you don't know what Shell Files are you should also ignore that section.

Once you have created limit.maxfiles.plist and created limit.maxproc.plist

Then you go over carefully to make sure you did not make a mistake, me I copied and pasted the text I provided into each file and then I changed to filename extension on each file. Anyway now is a good time to verify accuracy.

Next Run the Terminal and did the chown commands and then you should go to the Finder.

Select limit.maxfiles.plist and then type command I or go to the File Menu and then choose Get Info, you will then get a window.

Scroll Down in the Get Info Window to Sharing & Permissions: you should see in columns Name: system; Privilege: Read & Write; Name: wheel Privilege: Read only; Name: everyone Privilege: Read only

Do the same procedure to limit.maxproc.plist and you should have the same results in Sharing & Permissions as for the other file.

Note: also in the Get Info Window both files should have Open with: Property List (default)

If you see the same things that means that you did chown commands correctly, if you don't see the same permissions that I am seeing then it would mean that you did not do the commands correctly, try again.

Once you have verified that the files have the correct Permissions using Get Info, you then should put the files into <Mac's Hard Drive Name>/Library/LaunchDaemons and then you Restart.

Everything should work then.

Do let me know how it goes. I know it is not really Simple, but it did work for me and I am sure it will work for you too.

From what you wrote you have some major corruption in your game, but still you can play a Neighborhood that is corrupted.

The Mac has a Maximum Open File Limit and you have been regularly exceeding the number every time you have a lost a Sim or Sims every time you have lost a lot, every time you have lost a Neighborhood. You have a basic simple choice only run a very limited set of mods and various items of cc and don't add anything or Change your Mac's Maximum Open File Limit. Your issue with crashing might be connected or might not, my does crash, but it does not have the main symtoms I list.

In my own experience it has been safe to Change the Maximum Open File Limit and I have done it twice, especially if you have more than the minimum RAM and you keep the number of other processes besides The Sims 2 under control when you are playing.

First go to my post that explains how to disable System Integrity Protection {in that post I explain how to turn it back on} and follow the steps,115580.0.html , then go to the post where I explain how increase the Maximum Open File Limit and follow the steps carefully I did not find it that hard to do, just take your time and follow the steps carefully, I posted how I did it and it works for me,49183.0.html

@mynamenotbob I used TextEdit, but you can use any app that produces plain Text files, just change the file extension to .plist

@bourgeoisbanana I can't really help that much with bashrc or similar shell files as I don't use them, I have studied Unix, but I have not had any reason to make and use a shell file, so I have not done so. Sorry that I can't be of much help with this aspect.

On the main issue, my advice to approach it step by step, first copy and then paste my text {minus the part with the instructions} into a text file {copy and paste greatly reduces transciption errors} that is someplace like your Desktop and thus not in the Special launchdaemons folder {the OS does not allow modification of files in that folder, SIP off or not}, then save and change the file extensions to .plist then if you have your previous attempts in the launchdaemons folder remove them and put the new files in the launchdaemons folder. Then Run Terminal and do the file ownership commands making sure of course to put your Admin password in of course.

Should work, I set up my .plist files and it worked the first time and then I needed to increase the numbers so I did it again and it worked again. So Do Each Step Carefully and Check that you are doing the Step Correctly and it should work.
