[NEEDS INPUT] [CL] Overlapping festivals

[ Edited ]
★★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Deutsch
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.50.77.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Observe the festivals in San Myshuno.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sometimes if your Sims don't attend a festival until the end or don't visit it at all, some items (chairs, tables, food stalls) will stay and merge with the normal furniture of the area and the following festival (e. g. flea market / spice festival).
What do you expect to see? Festivals vanishing completely.
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. This bug exists since the release of City Living in 2016.

WORKAROUND: If your Sims attend a merged "double festival", make sure that they stay until the end of the current festival (e. g. flea market) when all items have vanished. If the first merged festival (e. g. spice festival) pops up some days later, visit it and stay again until the end.

But presumably they haven't fixed the fact that seasons affects certain festivals too, which also causes them to never end, which in turn means they will overlap.

If there's issues still for other circumstances, a new thread would be good.

I hadn't seen this issue for a longer while, but after Tuesday's patch the complete flee market sits on the complete spice festival ...

Do you happen to have a save from before you traveled to the lot?

 

If you're willing to share it with me, please send me a private message with a link to the save(s).

I never saw this problem until today (i.e., after the patch that supposedly fixed it).  Now I the flea market and spice festival have merged.  I'll be sending my saved game in a private message.

Dear @SimQARobo 

 

Thanks for your help! I have a save from one or two in-game days before the flea market. The stuck spice festival is already there. Got to "My Family" in Del Sol Valley and select the husband, I have sent him to the festival lot:

During the merged "double festival" I also noticed that it was impossible to summon the members of my clubs to the festival - but that was before yesterdays's patch, so I will do further testing.

 

Best regards and happy Easter
