Mac: I wanna play The Sims 4 on an external hard drive

The Sims 4 has become a huge game over the years.
We Macbook Pro and Air users have a limited space.

I get the question from a Sims player.

Is it possible to install The Sims 4 on an external hard drive on Mac?

Yes, it’s possible Sims friends

But you should pay attention to the following things
You should have a fast SSD hard drive
You can play it the same way over a NAS system

I’m using an SSD terabyte.

First, connect the external hard drive to your Mac
Install Origin either directly on the Mac or on the SSD

I have it installed on the Mac under

Open Origin go under Preferences

Select the directory of ”game library location” in Origin
Select the external drive

Then you install all the games there.

Important for the future
Always connect the external drive first before opening Origin, right!
