Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 


since a few months I have this weird bug in build mode. Some icons (like "chair" etc.) are unmarked, just as if I would have some new unmarked stuff in that section. The problem is, there's no unmarked thing in this section and icon stays yellow, screaming to me that I have to unmark something. 


I've been checking the game without mods, repaired game many times in origin, checked on clean save, with new folder in documents: it's still there.

So i don't know why it's still here. Please, help Frown

@TokusaShi In my past experience I have seen this happen when they release a new recolour of a previous item. I've seen this with chairs, decor, and things like teddy bears.

@crinrict THANK YOU SO MUCH! I never would've found this on my own and it was bugging me so much! (Also, this issue still exists more than a year later...)
