Aspyr Media on Friday noted that updates for its two expansion packs for the game The Sims 2 are now available that provide Universal Binary support, so they run natively on both Intel and PowerPC-based Macs.
The upgrades —
The Sims University 1.1 Rev A
The Sims 2 Nightlife 1.2 Rev A
— are available as free downloads.
The Sims 2 is the simulation game that puts you in charge of people called Sims — you help them find jobs, furnish their apartments and develop relationships that can ultimately yield families that grow, get old and die. It’s spawned two expansion packs, The Sims 2 University, which introduces university-aged Sims and college campus life elements, and The Sims 2 Nightlife, that lets Sims go out on the town clubbing and to restaurants and other nocturnal activities.
What’s more, The Sims 2 — which was already available as a Universal Binary update — has been patched again, this time to
version 1.0 E. The patch fixes a bug on Intel Macs that caused all offspring of a couple to have identical facial features.
