Default CAW still in Beta?
Remember when EA released CAW? Everybody who had a PC went "swoon" and almost immediately downloaded it to see what it could do, leaving the Mac users out in the dark. Its been a few years since EA has released CAW. Not only is the software still in Beta, but it is still only for PCs. Sims 3 is (hopefully not) nearing the end of its its cycle as the newest Sims game, with rumors of Sims 4 already available. When is EA planning to make a full version of CAW and make it readily available to Mac Users? Will they ever make one? Or will they just forget about it and move on to Sims 4. Discuss.

Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.

CAW is offered "As is" and it is not in development. It's not actually in BETA, it's very misleading, that label.

I suspect doing so would require additional effort, and they don't want to do that. Someone there probably decided it wasn't worth it, not that I necessarily agree with that.

Nothing against Mac, but since it's a less commonly used platform there's less reason to make stuff work with it.

In the meantime, have you tried using VMs (virtual machines...basically you can run PC software on Macs with this)?

They are not.
