Downloaded Sims 4 off Origin to play on my MacBook Air that is 6 months old. I'm finding it really difficult to play with a trackpad and thought "I will have to get a mouse!"

After Googling it I got a video of a guy using the Bluetooth on a Mac to connect a PS3 controller. Would this work for playing Sims 4? Could someone give me detailed instructions on how to do it?


Connecting a Dualshock 3 controller to a MAc is possible via bluetooth: How to Connect a PlayStation 3 Controller to a Mac

But it looks like controller support for The Sims 4 will not be available: Sims 4(PC) To Enable Controller/Gamepad Support (this question refers to PC specifically, but it's more than likely to apply cross platform)

As RESPAWN has mentioned below, there are a couple of gamepad to keyboard/mouse mapper programs available for Macs: JoystickMapper and Enjoyable

    A Google search turned up at least two pieces of software that seem to allow one to map a gamepad to keyboard and mouse controls. I don't have a Mac anymore, so I can't test myself, but it sounds like either one would be the last piece of the puzzle. Joystick Mapper: joystickmapper.com. Enjoyable: yukkurigames.com/enjoyable. – RESPAWN Feb 1 '16 at 16:51
