macOS Sierra 10.12 Installer Download Still Available on Mac App Store

· · Cool Stuff Found

During this week’s Mac Geek Gab 679 we discussed how many people have emailed us asking for a macOS Sierra 10.12 installer download link… and no one can seem to find one. Searching the Mac App Store yields nothing and, thus far, there’s no Apple knowledgebase article with a link to it (Update: that KB article now exists). MGG Listener “Kirk van” came to the rescue with this Mac App Store download link to the macOS Sierra 10.12.6 Installer.

Apple Moves Some Safari Extensions to Mac App Store

· · Cool Stuff Found

Apple launched a new Safari Extensions section on the Mac App Store this week. Currently there are 27 Safari Extensions on the MAS, a mix of free and for-fee Extensions. The original Safari Extensions Gallery website is still available, too, though, where you can find every Extension available. There wasn’t a lot of information released with the Mac App Store addition, and we don’t yet know if Apple plans to move all of them. Safari Extensions add hooks into apps, services, and other features into Apple’s Safari browser. Many are free—especially app companions—while others come with a (small) price tag.

Sid Meier's Railroads for Mac Hits Steam Platform

· · Cool Stuff Found

Feral Interactive announced this week that Sid Meier’s Railroads for Mac (originally Railroad Tycoon back in the day) is now available on Steam. This isn’t a new game—and it’s been available on the Mac App Store for years—but I love Railroads. Plus, a lot of Mac gamers are Steam users, so I’m mentioning it. Railroads was also updated on the Mac App Store. In addition to some unspecified bug fixes, the update removes support for Apple’s Game Center and Game Ranger. I’d love to see a new version of Railroads come out, but seeing Feral’s Steam announcement immediately got me playing the game again. It appeals to many of my inner nerds. It’s $17.99 on the MAS, but only $9.99 on Steam.

Firewatch Comes to Mac App Store

· · Cool Stuff Found

When Firewatch launched on Steam back in February the internet pretty much went crazy over the game, and now it’s available as a native Mac title. The game tasks you with solving a mystery while working as a firewatcher in Wyoming. The graphics are beautiful, the story is intriguing, and the only help you get comes from another firewatcher talking over your portable radio. Firewatch costs US$19.99 on Apple’s Mac App Store, and if you haven’t played it yet get ready to have a very unproductive weekend.
