Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver,

The original Sims 1 from Maxis. For those who somehow don't know, The Sims lets you simulate humans. You can customize their personalities, clothing, their houses, and even their jobs. It basically simulates life in a slightly unrealistic fashion (the time is fast-forwarded in a sense that 1 minute = 1 second in real life).

The original release and the first expansion pack "Livin' Large" were Classic applications compatible with Mac OS 8.6 and later. After the release of Mac OS X, there was a separate Carbon update, which also run on Mac OS 8.6 with CarbonLib 1.2.5 later installed. Later release expansion packs starting with "House Party" were released as Carbon-only applications.

About the updaters for The Sims 1.1.5:

Aspyr has released two The Sims udpates. One update is for classic MacOS while the Carbon update will work on OS X and MacOS (if you have CarbonLib 1.2.5 or later installed).

The Sims Carbon is an update to the original (1.x) version of The Sims for Macintosh, and as such requires an existing installation of the The Sims 1.x. The Sims Carbon cannot be used to update an existing installation of The Sims Livin' Large or The Sims House Party.

Once you have installed The Sims Carbon under either Mac OS 8/9 or Mac OS X, you can play The Sims Carbon under either Mac OS environment without reinstalling it.

On Mac OS 8.6 or 9.x, The Sims Carbon requires CarbonLib 1.2.5 or later to be installed.

@mrdav: Yes, I search for the updater v1.2.2 for "Livin' Large" as it is no more findable on the internet. The full version is not allowed to be uploaded until EA dies in a hopefully near future.

----->The link for the expansion "Livin' Large" leads into nowhere<-----

I have a copy of the "Livin' Large" expansion pack, but I will only put it here if an admin says it is OK. It is not really an updater as it was a CD that had to be purchased.

EDIT: On reflection, I cannot see how it can be allowed here, given the EA edict.

EDIT AGAIN: Ah...You are referring to an updater to the expansion pack? Well then that is OK, in which case what I said above is not relevant.

The download links for the Updaters at Macgamefiles dont work any longer !
I found the files at Aspyr by adding the updater's file name to (http://files.aspyr.com/support/*). Aspyr is abandoning support for Mac OS X 10.6 and earlier. So I archived the files here for the future.

The link for the expansion "Livin' Large" leads into nowhere and I do not know the updater's file name, so I cannot search for it on Aspyr's file server. If you know the original file name, please write it in the comments, so I can add it as well.
