[NEEDS INFO] Rocks not spawning in neighborhoods

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Bedrock Strait/ Oasis Springs
What happens when the bug occurs? Rocks don't appear as much as they and where they used to, instead there is a lot plants in groups around the neighbourhood
What do you expect to see? The rocks appearing in the places they used to appear
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. June 19, 2018

Basically, after the latest update from June 19, 2018, rocks don't appear in the places they used to appear (at least in Bedrock Strat), instead plants are spawning like crazy and I am not sure whether they will stop spawning. Last time I checked, there were five in the same spot.

Hi @MarijaV95

 

saw other reports for the rocks not spawning so going to do some test.

 

As for the wild flower issue, was going to say there's an other thread for that but it's actually supposed to be fixed in today's patch: 

 

  • Plants were growing a bit too wildly out and about in the world. We’ve scaled them back with some digital, organic, completely sustainable pesticide.

Hi @MarijaV95

 

this seems to be one of these hard to replicate issues, 

 

Would you be willing to share your save with me ?

If so, please zip your saves folder and upload it somewhere like dropbox,, googledrive or OneDrive and PM me the link.

I'm also noticing issues with rocks not respawning in the Skyward Palms neighborhood, the park, and the commercial district of Oasis Springs. A few but not all of the spots have spawned diggable dirt mounds instead.

 

I'm currently testing this in the upper left neighborhood of Newcrest. So far it seems that after the initial rock harvest, only two of them have reliably respawned over the course of a few in-game days. 

 

This may also be affecting frog-logs (though not pump wells), but I'm not completely sure. My sims only occasionally collect frogs, so I wasn't paying attention to where they normally are.

I'm not sure about the other issues, I havent noticed a bunch of plants yet buy I never went neighbourhood hopping looking for collectables between the main patch and the most recent fix. I have to say though I BELIEVE the little dirt mounds are WAI since Dogs and Cats came out as I am fairly certain they are there as digging locations for dogs, but I can still dig them up too. I have to say I definitely have not noticed a lack of rocks in my neighbourhood, there seem to be about the same amount now as there was before, so not sure what this means in relation to the issue.
