Re: Saved my lot to My Library and it shows having CC but I’m on console

★★★★★ Apprentice

Hi, i'm on pc & don't use mods, but had the cc notification appear as well. I had a sim live in a small house as a freelance photographer and painter, most of the walls was filled with all his work he didn't sell, then i had him get married moved to a bigger home, had 2 children, when he died i decided to separate the adult kids now to each house. His son continued his old job filled more walls with his work.

 

Well, i then decided i didn't to lose it all, i made a backup of my whole sims folder 1st, i evicted sim to just save the lot only then quit & put back my old save, I got the cc symbol, i started deleting different unlockables thinking that could be it, but when i deleted all the paintings&photos the cc went away. i quit, put back my old save, tried again.

 

i found out it was just the dead sim's photos&paintings, but not the current sim's 1's, i guess since the sim was no longer in the game it registered as if i didn't own those items.

 

if you have a dead sim's photos&paintings on the wall, like i had, maybe that could b the problem on ps4 as well

@midtwilightblue Merging this with the existing bug report.

As @Tkilroy36 says, paintings (paint by ref) and photos can flag lots as cc.

Let me know if that's not the cause for you

Pics taken by a Sim, Sold on plopsy flagged as CC

★★ Novice

My sim is a style influencer and took some pics with his camera of his backyard. When I put the house on the gallery, it was flagged as cc. I checked what it could be and there are two pics my sim took and sold on plopsy that were flagged and now I'm unable to get rid of the cc. Is there anything I can do to remove the pics that are flagged as cc (I do not remember who bought them) or am I out of luck?

 

Thank you so much,

@SphereArcana Merging this with the bug report on pictures flagging lots as cc.

Usually it should only flag as cc if they are actually present on the lot.

Do you have the house in the gallery still ? What's the name ?

Paintings Incorrectly Tagged as CC

★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.70.84.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? base game
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? A new painting by reference on easel.
What happens when the bug occurs? Room with painting is incorrectly tagged as cc.
What do you expect to see? No tagged cc room when is the painting made by standart interaction of "painting by reference". Or possibility to disable auto-detected cc when uploading a room.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I would like to upload my paintings which are original cc using the method - painting by reference. (after tutorial how to make nocc for gallery upload purpose)  but my painting which is made by a sim on easel is still tagged as cc automatically. I tried to paint by reference standard, no cc, picture or just world surrounding, and it worked normal so the room is not tagged as cc. It seems like a bug, because I see in the gallery pictures from simmers are posted as nocc using the same method uploaded in last few days. I also tried to turn off all mods and cc from the game. Of course my new paintings made by sim on easel are left on the lot because they are not cc objects. However when there is a "reflection" of original cc painted picture on it is not possible to upload without auto cc tag.

Comment/Question: isn't this just an "as intended" matter instead of a bug?

Considering that the actual image is not supplied by the game (like with the emotional or build mode paintings), but created by the player - it follows that EA/Maxis have no (full) control over the content of the image and as such it falls under "custom(er) content", meaning that EA/Maxis disclaims responsibility for whatever is in the image?
This for legal, "adult content" and bugfixing reasons? (bug example: your photo was taken clipping in another object, causing a distorted image)
