[NEEDS SAVES] [S] NPC Holiday Decorations getting stuck (Patch 1.55)

[ 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? 1.55.108.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play past Winterfest, then look for Winterfest decorations staying up in certain areas year round.
What happens when the bug occurs? Before Realm of Magic was released, Winterfest decorations got stuck in only ONE area (that I could find): the part of Willow Creek where the library, gym, etc are. (This was after Patch 1.47.49 was released and installed.) The rest of Willow Creek and other worlds were unaffected. Decorations stayed up for one Sim year. During that "year," Realm of Magic was released and I installed it. The next winter, Winterfest decorations also got stuck at Magic HQ in the Magic Realm. The two areas with stuck decorations are the areas my current Sims visit most frequently, but not exclusively.
What do you expect to see? Decorations should disappear on public lots after the holiday has passed.
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? No

I noticed that this post says “fixed”, but for me this is still happening.

@Katrus91 For a new holidays/ new saves? As stated above, already existing ones might need to be removed manually first.

 

It does still seem to happen for certain neighborhoods though.

@Asung010686 Did these newly happen.


There was an issue with these but it's been fixed a while ago
https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TO-ADD-S-NPC-Holiday-Decorations-won-t-go-away-after-holiday-i... ?

I'm not sure how existing saves behave with this though. Try having a holiday with no decorations and travel around the neighborhoods that currently have them and see if that gets rid of them for good.

I dont think the problem has been "fixed". This happened 3 days ago to me and I just checked again the decorations still there. I deleted the fences and built some new, but the decorations appeared again. I'll try what you suggested to wait for the next holiday, but it will be over a week later....That is ennoying...DisappointedDisappointed

@Asung010686 you can just create one for the next day.

Is it happening in all worlds or just certain ones ?

Same here, looks like the issue returned in some form with the pre-Uni patch. I will do further testing when I'm home next week.

@Asung010686 Actually found another pre-existing open thread although the report was only for certain neighborhoods.

Merged your post now and changed the title.

@Asung010686 If you want to take down the decorations you can buy the decoration-box in the decoration category in buy mode, then you go into live mode and click on the box and choose the option of taking down the decorations.

This way you don’t have to have the decorations up all the way until the next holiday. So it’s a temporary workaround.
