I've just switched on mac and I want to start making CC with help of parallels (and s4s ofc), but I have no idea how to make it work. Do I need have my sims installed on MAC or Windows? I will be using Windows 7 Home premium edition and palarells version 10.2.1. Please help, Im totally noob.
Sorry for my poor english.
EDIT: Ok, I've run windows, install s4s, everything works perfect, but what about the game? Should I install it on mac or windows?
All right, finally after hours of fighting, I've get things done. I have got my game installed on Mac, but I use S4S on parallels Windows 7. All you need to do is:
1. Open on windows 7 disc C, Program files (x86) and create Folder Origin Games --> The Sims 4 2. Open in your Finder Application --> Sims 4 ---> Show package content (?) 3. Copy all files to Origin games --> The sims 4 on windows 4. Change name of Contents folder to Game 5. Folder Data from Contents put on it's own in folder The Sims 4 on Windows
Everything should work. Now I'm looking for a way to not waste space on a hard drive, because instead of 12, my game occupies 24GB space. If anybody has any ideas, please share with me.
I know that one of the users give (I think so) really similar way to this on the first page of this topic, but it wasn't really clear for me :<
julkens, I'm going to try to follow your footsteps on my machine. Thank you so much for sharing how you got it to work. As for making it so you don't have to have two copies of the game on your machine, I think symbolic links might help address this challenge.
I have tried to do what julkens suggested but it's still not working. Is it because I have Windows 10 instead of Windows 7? I've been trying to get it work all day and S4S just will not accept the sims files I uploaded to my virtual machine. If anyone has a solution I would be very grateful.
choe13 I don't think that problem is in you version of windows. Are you sure that you copy whole files from mac to parallels disc properly? Here is a screen how your TS4 folder should look in parallels. Please give me further details so I could help you.
prolixious thank you for these links, I will check it out soon.
Now my only struggle is blender, because I'd prefer to have it installed on my mac not parallels, but as far I can see it seems impossible. The only solution I see to install blender on both systems. Any suggestions anyone?
