[FIXED] Highlighting gets stuck for new rooms

[ Edited ]
★★ Apprentice

Hello,


After the extensive period of the previous 'highlighting new items stuck' topic, there is one thing that I keep noticing every time I get another pack:

 

When those packs add new rooms the are marked with a striped background that shouts 'Hey, I'm new!' and also their category icon is gold saying something new is in there. But placing said room doesn't toggle that off.

 

I am now reverting to the temporary solution posted in that old topic to get the notfication to go away, but either I'm overlooking something very obvious or this isn't how it should work. Does anybody know something that I do not?

 

Edit: 2nd screenshot shows the rooms after I took away the 'new' mark with the workaround from the other topic. This is how I want my game to work once I've 'seen' the rooms....

There have been a number of patches packs and other updates since this post, and I can confirm this is still going on!

There is a very good workaround for this issue, which works for both buy mode items as well as rooms, you can find it here:

Your issue sounds different.

 

Are you saying that each time you start the game, everything is marked as new again ? Did you delete any files in documents ?

Re: [OPEN] [CL] Highlighting of new items stuck in Decorations Category

The testingcheatsenabled & the ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement worked for me regarding the individual items showing as new items... but I was stuck with styled rooms showing as new...

 

I don't know if this could help anyone - but I just double clicked on each CL room (the only EP I have) and this allowed the system to 'unhighlight' those rooms.  Just figured I'd share in case it helps. 

 

Cool

Finally something that WORKS. I would have never thought that you would need to DOUBLE click rooms. Thank you very much!
