[OPEN] Downloaded lots still treated as former lot type

[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Nederlands
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.46.18.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Stuff packs: Sims 4 Backyard Stuff, Sims 4 Bowling night Stuff, Sims 4 Cool Kitchen Stuff, Sims 4 Movie night Stuff, Sims 4 Fitness Stuff, Sims 4 Spooky Stuff, Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff, Sims 4 Luxury Party Stuff, Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff, Sims 4 Toddler Stuff, Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff, Sims 4 Vintage Glamour Stuff, Sims 4 Laundry Day Stuff. Game packs: Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat, Sims 4 Jungle Adventure, Sims 4 Parenthood, Sims 4 Dine Out, Sims 4 Vampires, Sims 4 Spa Day. Expansion packs: Sims 4 Get to Work, Sims 4 Get Together, Sims 4 City Living, Sims 4 Cats and Dogs.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Make a household. 2. Let that household move live in a house. 3. Go to world manager. 4. Place a community lot from the gallery in a world (Make sure you have: Fill empty houses on). 5. There are 2 methods: Play for a while and go to world manager or travel with your household you are playing with and you see a plumbob above the icon from the community lot that you placed that means a household is living in it. Or you can travel to a lot next to the community lot you placed and once you are loaded in you can click on that community lot and you see the options: Visit and the option To get a household from the gallery and let the household live in the community lot (That last option shows that the community lot you placed gets treated as a residential lot).
What happens when the bug occurs? When community lots that aren't pre-made in any of the world(s) get treated as residential lots, then households are starting to live in the community lots but the employees still show up but there is a household living in the community lot.
What do you expect to see? Problem: Community lots that are from the gallery or that aren't premade in any of the world(s) gets treated as residential lots that's why households that aren't in any world from the household manager move into community lots that aren't pre-made. I expect to see: That community lots that are from the gallery and that aren't pre-made in any of the world(s) no longer gets treated as residential lots.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

Hello, my name is William! I have encountered a problem in The Sims 4. Households are living in community lots that I got from the gallery, it doesn't matter which community lot it happens by every community lot that is from the gallery or that isn't premade in any of the world(s). When im in live mode and im on a lot next to a community lot that I got from the gallery or that isn't premade in any of the world(s), and click on that community lot it shows me the options: Visit and the option to get a household from the gallery and let the household live in the community lot. Employees still show up on the community lot but there is a household living in it. So the bug in short: Community lots that I got from the gallery or that aren't pre-made get treated as residential lots that's why also households that aren't in any world from the household manager are moving into community lots. The first screenshot called: Schermopname 10 shows households living in community lots I placed down. The second screenshot called: Schermopname 8 shows that employees are still showing up on the community lot. (I had mods but I removed them because I didn't like them and after I removed them I also did a factory reset of The Sims 4)

 

UPDATE: I dont have the bug anymore since the patch from November 13th 2018.

These type of lots can't be owned so how are they owned by other Sims ? 

 

Can you post a picture ?

 

 

Would you be willing to share your save with me ?

 

If so, please zip your saves folder and upload it somewhere like dropbox, mediafire, googledrive or OneDrive and PM me the link.

owning non business lots? -The sims 4

★★★★ Novice

I just made a new nightclub and put it on three different lots in the game to see where it looked better and when I quit the game and reopened it now one of them is "owned" by a household which was randomly generated. They don't have any houses and live in the nightclub and it's still functional and has a bartender and random people coming inside. When I checked it said they don't own any business and I can't change the lot type cause it's "owned"... Is this a part of the August 16th update or is it a problem? If it is intentional, how do I do it myself?

HI @Rairanya

 

this is indeed a bit odd and shouldn't happen. Are you using any mods in your game ?

@crinrictI don't have any custom content except for one that changes the CAS background. This has only happened once and I wish it was actually a part of gameplay cause I'd love to own any lots I want and live there... I wish I knew how it happened so that I could do it again

@crinrict I have sent you the link, also Update on strangely generated households, I just made a new save file and after playing a little I saw a new household including only one dog and no human sims. I tried to play and surprisingly my game didn't crash, but this happened and I can't really do anything with the dog but watch him sleep and be sad.Sad Lonely Dog

Hi @Rairanya

 

I checked your save and I can see what you mean. I think what happened is that the game still thought it was a residential lot, when it moved in the family so sounds like a random glitch

 

You can just use the sell business button from the map view on the lot or move the family out via the household manager (or delete).

 

I can't tell you how to repro it as it would probably be difficult to do so and it's really odd that it's considered a business by the game. Def. don't think it's intended though as they live on the same lot as the business which isn't the way other businesses work.

 

It might be related to this issue where a lot is still considered a community lot although it was changed to residential: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TO-ADD-Empty-residential-lot-as-location-for-date/td-p/6449096...
