Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Boxes of junk not appearing to sims who live outside the neighbourhood/preexisting sims in the neighbourhood.

would reach the area near where the spice festival is for a full day but none appears (coming during non-festival times) or at the park in San Myshu 

But playing in the neighbour hood it appears with (newly created sims (made by the player.)
(not existing ones that already live in the neighbourhood )

 

Things ive done to try and fix it are; 

  • verify files
  • repair game files
  • uninstall reinstall

and none have fixed it for the pre-existing sims and the neighbourhood created or preexisting sims unable to find the junk boxes (checking everyday in the morning until 11pm at night)

The spawners generally only work if you spend time in the neighborhoods. That has always been the case.

Are you spending any time at all in San Myshuno ? As I'm not sure I understand your report correctly. Did you spend a whole day there or did you come back after a whole day while playing another household ?

spend the whole day there and writing down when they spawn and then after a week swapping to another household/neighbourhood then going on those days when they usually spawn on the normal for the san myshuno, then i get there about 7.30am because im aware that it takes time to spawn but they dont.

Do you just have issues with the boxes or also rocks/gems and posters ?

Similar issue, while my sim lived in the city the boxes would spawn all over, but since I've moved the household into a different world, the boxes have stopped spawning completely.

Previously on a save where my sim never lived in the city at all, I never got the boxes in the first place (And boy was I confused about what boxes the flea market festival was talking about!)

 

From my experience, it does not matter where you live in the city, as long as you live in the city the boxes will spawn, and otherwise they simply never spawn at all.

 

 

I have even spend a long enough time in a single neighborhood in the past for the posters to respawn multiple times, yet during that whole time not a single box spawned there.

On the other hand, while my new sim lived in a appartment, the boxes pretty much got thrown at me like snow globes are going out of style!

@Entoarox this happened to me too. I had a sim live in san myshuno for a while before moving out to brindleton bay. after moving out to brindleton bay, whenever I returned to san myshuno to collect snow globes no boxes would show up. it doesn’t matter if I spend the whole day hanging out in any particular district, I can’t collect snow globes.
