Did your floor patterns experience a glow that never went away after selecting all of them? That’s not a problem anymore.

Fixed in Patch 1.68.154/ 1.33

 

If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.

Re: Unmarked stuff in build mode

@crinrict I installed Eco Lifestyle and now this bug appears in build mode, on floor patterns. I've selected them all and none is marked with a star, but I still can't get rid of the highlight on Floor Patterns. Is this happening to anyone else?

Re: Unmarked stuff in build mode

Is there a different workaround without having to download hex editors? Not to sound like an idiot (which granted I am) but I don't know what that is and I'm wary of downloading strange apps off the internet?

Well, in the past when this happened, it was usually a color swatch not properly updating. Since it's only like 7 floor patterns, you could simply check all their colors and see if it helps.

 

Or wait for the patch (it tends to get patched out at some point).

 

/I can't check it since I used the hex editor method already

Contains New Items! Floor Patterns - glitch - still showing unreviewed/gold

★ Novice

Xbox One - Contains New Items! Floor Patterns - I have reviewed all items that were highlighted as new items, but on the font build screen it is still highlighted gold as if there is something still unreviewed. 

 

I have all base packs, all but the outdoor retreat add ons and most of the game packs. This issue started when I installed the new eco pack.
