Hello @crinrict!

 

I have seen on the link you send about: Residential lot still the location for dates. That is the same issue as mine because we both have the problem that lots, where you change the lot type from still keep the old lot type. Like: Community lot changed to residential is still treated as a residential lot. A residential lot changed to community lot is still treated as a community lot.

 

I also found a workaround but the bug still stays so I hope they still fix the bug even though there is a workaround.

 

WORKAROUND: 1. Kick out the household living in the lot (If you have the problem by a community lot)

                             2. Place the building of the affected lot again on the same lot.

                             This can be done pretty fast and this also worked for me! 

                             

Explanation why this works: The game treats lots you changed the lot type from as the previous lot type, for example: You have a residential lot and you changed it to a community lot then the game treats it as a residential lot but if you change a community lot to a community lot by just placing the same building again then the game treats the community lot as a community lot.

 

Happy Simming!

Just adding that I have this problem too, two Maxis community lots I placed in Newcrest now have families living in them.  They still funcion normally and I have no Mods or CC.

A very useful bug if it could concern my family and for example a bakery or restaurant. It could be solve problem of having a house besides a restaurant, for example, But it seems that it does not concern active sims. B.t.w - the bowling alley downloaded from the gallery to my game to test this bug is inhabited now by a family with three children. Unfortunately, I didn't switch off the MCCC and my mod suddenly discovered an empty, pretty new residencial lot in the city!

It could be useful but a bug is a bug.

Hello

 

UPDATE: When I visit a community lot that gets treated as residential and then travel to another lot in the same neighbourhood and click on the community lot I just travelled too, it no more gives the residential lot options (and gets treated as its current lot type).

Experienced this bug while playing today. Don't know if I had it before the patch or not, but I definitely have it now.

[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] Talent Showcase takes place on former lounge lot

[ 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? 1.48.94.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All packs except Vampires, Spooky Stuff, Holiday Celebration, and Grim's Ghoulish Guitar
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Place a restaurant on a lounge lot and change the venue type to restaurant. Then wait for the Talent Showcase to be scheduled on that lot. I also read that the issue happened with a simmer who changed the Stargazer lounge lot in San Myshuno to a residential lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? I placed a restaurant on the Club Calico lounge lot in Brindleton Bay. I also changed the venue type to restaurant. The system set the Talent Showcase for this lot even though it is now a restaurant. When the event started, it launched a continuous string of last exceptions that filled up my notification wall.
What do you expect to see? I expect the Talent Showcase to only occur at lounge venues.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I'm not sure about the patch, but I didn't have this issue before installing Get Famous.

System is selecting non-lounge venues for Talent Showcase.
