The patch just prevents it from happening again. I doubt that it fixes the existing bugged lots.

I am having this stupid issue....It looks like it's been going on for over a year. Why has EA not fixed it Frown I've tried buying the lot a retail but I can't because it doesn't identify it as a residential or a retail. It's really frustrating.

It's fixed and should not occur anymore

 

Existing lots will not be fixed, it should just not happen anymore.

 

Did you follow the exact instructions ?

I don't know when, but this did happen ("special" generic) to the park lot in Oasis Springs, The first instructions didn't work, but sending my sim to the lot and then buying it as a retail store worked!

Is this happening in a newer save or did you play this a while ?

I got a lot locked in Generic on Feb 8-9 2017.  I have uploaded the save file to the MediaFire link:cyclelegs.zip  There is an explanatory text file with the save.  The locked lot is the only empty lot in Newcrest and is named Fern Park.  This is my current game but it has its roots back in early 2016 when it was a 'New Game'.  It has gone through many 'Save As' iterations.  I can't upload the whole 'Saves' folder as it is 1Gb and I don't have that sort of bandwidth.

Did it lock just now or was it locked before and you just didn't notice ?

 

Affected lots aren't automatically reset so you'll need to use the workaround to fix it so I just wanna make sure it still newly occurred.

 

Thanks for the save

This lot locked just now.  I had been working to build a Primary School as a Generic build for several weeks.  I worked on it on Feb 8 with no problem and changed the lot type to Primary School to do some testing and then changed it back to Generic before saving and exiting.  The next day I found the Lot locked in Generic.  Once I found the fix, I didn't have a problem resetting the lot and reloading my saved build.
