I'm trying to run SimCity 4 Deluxe on my 12 Core Mac Pro with OS X Yosemite (10.10), but the game keeps freezing when I'm playing. Have to cmd+option+esc, and constantly save during the game so I don't lose much data. It's a pain to have to relaunch the game every 3 minutes.

    Anything of interest in /var/log/system.log at the time of freezing? – nohillside Nov 17 '14 at 19:28
  • Was trying to use the CD version... decided to just buy the updated Steam version. So far it's been running smoothly, gotten about 18 hours of gameplay without a hitch! Also was able to set up syncing my game save via drop box so I can switch between my Macs! – Charles John Thompson III Nov 19 '14 at 12:48

It appears that the CD version of this game is just too old to run on OS X 10.10 Yosemite. The solution was to purchase the updated game via Steam or the Mac App Store.
