available for Mac OS X, possibly as soon as next week!
John Butler and Phil Sulak, of Westlake Interactive, have been doing a
fabulous job getting everything carbonized and ready to roll.
"The truly amazing and talented John Butler started working on it about
two months ago; needless to say, the results are excellent!" says Sulak.
"The launch time (as well as other file operations under X) is very
fast, and the game runs very smoothly. Plus it's a nice bonus to not
worry about running out of memory with large houses and lots of
downloaded objects & skins:-)"
When Sims Carbon is released, updates to the Classic versions of The Sims
and Livin' Large will also be made available. If you're not using OS X,
it is recommend that you continue to play the game with the Classic apps.
