  • Sims will no longer have difficulty decorating the Ever Delightful Evergreen Holiday Tree when it’s placed adjacent to certain wall decorations.

Fixed in Patch 1.47.49

Mine has been in a corner, too, so this might indeed be the issue!

I still have that buggy tree, I'll test out if the problem is solved by putting it somewhere else. 

 

Edit: @crinrictI have tried decorating the tree in an open space as suggested and it worked, all decorations showed up! So I can definitely confirm.

I had mine in the corner to start with, but I figured that might be the problem, so I moved it out into the centre of the room -- and it still didn't work. I even tried deleting it and buying a new tree, in case I had borked it. Still no luck. It has just occurred to me, though, that when I had it in the middle of the room, it might have been touching the light fitting. I don't know whether that might have affected it. I'll try experimenting a bit more - in a larger room, with higher ceilings.

Hi - just posting again to say that I tried decorating the tree in a larger room, with higher ceilings (medium height walls), and it worked perfectly this time. I can't say for sure, but it seems that my previous problem may have been that the ceiling light was touching the tree - or it might possibly have been that the ceiling was too low.

I'm on to my second winter.  The tree worked perfectly in the first winter but this time it only shows as having a garland and tree topper.  I've bought a brand new tree and same problem.  The tree is in the same place as it was last year.

Same here. First it was in the corner, but decoreted perfectly, next winterfest it did not, so I placed it in the middle, I only got partial decoration. It might touched the ceiling light, and it definetly tuched the carpet. I will try it someplace else next winter.

Hi! 

 

I think you can use this link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZFd9XSFPlCanIS_4f8TWG0H4Z1CkYvL-/view?usp=sharing

I use a few mods, mainly mc command centre.

Last winter I managed to have both the topper and garlands show up (but not the other decoration, whatever it's called), this winterfest though I can only get the topper, the rug and presents underneath to show up.

I tried all of the toppers and rugs and they work fine.

What changed from this winterfest from the last is I changed the position of the tree, otherwise it's the same family and no new mods.

Hope you find the issue Standard smile
