Re: [OPEN] [S] NPC Holiday Decorations getting stuck (Patch 1.55)

★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform: PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Dutch
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.60.54.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? After every holiday the decorations staying up in certain areas. Like Winterfest, Loveday, Harvest Fest. The decorations are changing after these holidays. So just play the holidays and look around in certain areas, like parcs.

What happens when the bug occurs? On the day of the holiday the decorations in all the worlds change to Winterfest, Loveday of Harvest Fest. That's great, but when the holidays are over the decorations of the past holiday stays up. I can't remove them. I've tried to create a holiday without decorations, but even then the decorations of one the holidays I've descript above are staying up. Nothing seems to work to remove them.
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? Yes, a few weddingdresses which I only use during weddings. Even when I remove them the decorations aren't going away.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

 

I hope you can help us with this problem. I want to thank you in advance. You work hard and I appreciate it.

@Vivianne-1993I am sure this bug is not related to your CC. I have the same bug in one of my game saves that is mod/CC free (never used). Creating a custom holiday with no decorations did not work for me either. Please be sure to click the Me Too button at the beginning of this thread.

So I found how to fix it for me on public and residental lots.
Travel to the area with the problem at 7 am. Create a holiday for the day after with no decor. Save the game. Delete the holiday. Wait until the decor disappears. Reload the game. The decor will be gone when you reload. And repeat: Travel to a new problem area, save, delete holiday, wait, reload.
The reason for this method is becuase when I just delete the hoilday and traveled to a new area I couldn't create a new holiday anymore. So in that case I would only have been able to clear one area per day.

I'm still having this problem. I have the latest patch and no cc or mods loaded.

@SisterGloomy, Thank you for sharing your fix. You can also plan a holiday with no decorations. It worked for me for now, but I hope this bug gets fixed soon, so we don't have to find other solutions.
