No matter how much I put into it, this is what it looks like in my game:

Note:  I have way more objects in the freezer/warmer than listed.  It should show full with just the minimum I have shown.

 

The warmer doesn't show full when it is full.

 

This is what it is supposed to look like:

Now I'm confused. Why did you put a Fixed tag ?

It was by accident.  The post had an auto-generated title.  I didn't delete the whole title I guess.  It is not fixed though.

I took a look at the coding for this the other day in an attempt to try and fix it via mod.

I couldn't. The reason being that the geostate information appears to be MISSING from the tuning file and I didn't know what to add to get it working again.

 

Basing my knowledge on how the toilet works, it has a geostate for when the bowl is empty and another for when the bowl is full. The coding states which geostate it should start with when purchased and then stipulates triggers that make it switch between the two.

 

I assume these display racks should work in the same way but, as I said, the coding is missing. The only mention I could find for the geostates in the tuning is the one stating which should be used when the object is first purchased. The "full" geostate doesn't appear in the code and there are no triggers set to even attempt to change the geostate.

 

If I knew how to get hold of the tuning that shippped with GTW's release then I could see what code got stripped out and add it back in. I really shouldn't have to do that in the first place though. This should be an easy fix for the official Sims Team.

It has been a year and several packs/patches, and I'm STILL having this issue. I'm just wondering if anyone has found a fix?

Every aspect of the Lice appliances has been broken for years. They fixed the issue allowing npcs to buy from them, but they still ignore the other issues. The freezer can't even hold anything.

They fixed most issues with this. However, this issue still persists. I just put in a ton a produce and my store looks completely empty because the freezer no longer changes as food gets stored inside. Also,. Spinach and herbs cannot be put in but that's on a separate thread.
