What works

Sims 4 runs flawlessly under WINE.

Everything within the base game, DLCs, and Mods / Custom Content work perfectly. 

What does not

Every once in a while after Sims 4 updates, DLC will stop working.

To fix this issue open "My Games" in origin, right click on Sims 4 and select "Repair Game".  After the game finishes repairing Origin may crash, just click "Restart Origin".  After updating Sims 4 you will need to re-enable Mods / Custom Content in the game settings.

Additional Comments

If the game crashes on launch, be sure that "Origin In-Game" is disabled in Origin's settings. Origin > Application Settings > Origin In Game > Uncheck "Enable Origin In Game"
