The issue is SafeDisc copy protection, and possibly other anti-debugger systems. (EA is paranoid of copyright infringement.)
From what I can tell Sims uses a very aggressive SafeDisc 2.x copy protection variant that seems to be posing some unusual problems.
The copy protection software will require much more completion in the Kernel, Driver and Services sections of the Wine subsystem to run. These sections are thus-far the least complete of the internal Win32 API.
