Hi @crinrict,

 

No, the showcase was not scheduled before I changed the lot. I changed the lot a few months ago, and it was changed before I installed Get Famous.

If you changed it a few month ago, it could have something to do with this issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TO-ADD-Downloaded-Community-lots-still-treated-as-residential/...

Could you try if you still get them scheduled on those lots if you bulldoze the lot and re-place it with your build again ?

Hi @crinrict,

 

I did what you suggested and bulldozed the lots and placed the buildings again. There were talent showcases already scheduled at a restaurant that was previously the lounge in Oasis Springs, as well as the lounge lot in San Myshuno that I changed to a penthouse. The talent showcases are still scheduled for these lots after I bulldozed and placed them again. I’ll wait until these two showcases pass and see if they are continuously set at the restaurants and the penthouse.

Hi @crinrict,

 

I let some time pass in the game after doing what you suggested. The talent showcases are still being scheduled at residential lots and restaurants that used to be lounge lots.

Social events at residential lots instead of social lots.

★★★★ 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? 1.50.67.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats & Dogs, City Living, Get Famous, Get To Work, Get Together, Seasons. Dine Out, Jungle Adventure, Outdoor Retreat, Parenthood, Spa Day, Vampires. Laundry Day Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? It happens every time another sim calls me and invites me to a social event.
What happens when the bug occurs? It's putting me at the wrong lot type for the event.
What do you expect to see? The wrong lot type.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I've replaced almost all of the default lots with ones I've created myself and changed the lot types to correlate with the new lots theme. For example. what previously was a bar lot, is now a residential lot. However, all in game bar events still are held at the old bar lot (which is now the new residential lot). There are other bar lots available for play but any social event trigger will always point to a now residential lot. This happens with several different types of social events too. The last one I had issues with was a charity event that took me to a house.

Is this a bug and is there a known fix for this? I've tried searching the forums and Google, but I've only seen one other person with this issue from April 2018 and they never posted a resolution. The problem is because it takes my sim to a residential lot instead of a social lot, it is impossible for my sim to complete any of the social event tasks, and I'm stuck at some random house for like 5 hours until the event is over. I have to fail almost every single social event that points to a residential lot, when it should be at a bar lot or nightclub lot.

Please help!

★★ Guide

 Ever since Get Famous was released I have been having similar issues, with changed lots. In all of my saves pre Get Famous, the talent contest is help weekly at the Oasis Spring dust bowl, even though it does not have the lounge items needed. I placed the Dust Bowl on the old lounge lot and the even thought it says its a bar the game thinks it a lounge still.

 

 Starting a new game it recognises the change but not on any game started before Get Famous, for me.
