The Sims 4 has received a brand new update for Mac players!
The latest update fixes various issues that Catalina players experienced because of a single glitch where the game wasn’t able to properly access all the game files. That glitch has now been fixed and when opening up The Sims 4 you’ll have to grant the request to access the Documents folder in order to play the game without issues.
SimGuruNick has also shared how to grant access if you’ve accidentally hit “Deny”:
If you’re on Catalina, you’ll be asked to grant TS4 access to your Documents folder. Please grant this request. If you accidentally hit deny, you’ll have to go to Security & Privacy > Privacy > Files and Folders and check the box for TS4

Update 10/23/2019 – 22.214.171.1240
Small but important update for macOS players. Catalina players have had a bit of a rough time thanks to some changes in how applications access files. This has made game play a little bumpy. This patch makes things work more reliably for Catalina users!
- Simmers on macOS 10.15 (Catalina) will be prompted to allow The Sims 4 access to the Documents folder. Grant this request.
