Sims 1 Expansion Packs for OS 9

I know the the Sims 1 Collection is for OS X only but I'm wondering how many of the expansion packs for Sims 1 were Carbonized?

On the site they have just the first four expansions, which work fine with OS 9.

But I'm curious about the 4 following expansion packs, namely: Vacation, Unleashed, Superstar and Making Magic.

I've read some anecdotal evidence that they all support OS 9 as well but I can't find any concrete evidence on that.

I'm sure tracking down all those disc images would be pretty hard as well. Haha

Sims 1 collection also runs on OS 9 with updated CarbonLib.

The Sims Complete Collection doesn't run for me under MacOS 9.0.4 regardless of which CarbonLib version I install, so I'm pressing X to doubt that. The Sims: House Party was the last non-carbonized expansion for The Sims.

What's your platform?

Why does it not run? You may need to get info on the application and increase the memory allocation.

I've also had problems getting The Sims Complete Collection to run under Mac OS 9.0.4, even with the latest version of CarbonLib. When I try to run it I get the error message "The Sims Complete requires MacOS version 8.6 or later". I'm doing this on SheepShaver on a MacBook Pro running macOS Mojave, so maybe it's a problem with the emulator. When I get the chance I'll try out increasing the memory allocation for the app and see if that works for me.
