What is your current game version number? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions except Get Famous, All Game Packs except Realm of Magic, Vampires and Spa Day, and only Tiny Living, Movie Hangout and Laundry Day stuff packs.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Open a Retail Business, after the NAPs have changed the neighbourhood.Everything is fine entering the lot, then as soon as hit the Open for Business button, whoosh, it changes!
What happens when the bug occurs? All the areas within the neighbourhood that change when the NAP call for it, disappear. The lots become floating blocks, the paths and roads between become white or mirrored depending on time of day. Closing the business, doesn't reset it back.
What do you expect to see? The neighbourhood to look like it does before Opening the Business.

After about 5 game weeks, I bought the smaller house lot, Rockridge Springs in Grims Quarry, as a retail business, for my sims who live on Shiipping Views in Port Promise. I did very little building, only adding a few larger windows at the front and a bigger door. Everything was fine, shop stocked, items set for sale, until I hit the 'Open' button. Then all the parts of the neighbourhood that change when the NAP changes disappeared. This happens every time in this game. I tested another family from a different save, but it didn't happen, though I didn't play through a NAP change.

Do you guys also have issues with vet clinics and restaurants or is this limited to retail ?

@crinrictI don't have Dine Out but will give a Vet Clinic a try.

Edited to say, Yes I do have Dine Out - that's what happens when you've taken advantage of recent sales!

I have just tried opening a Vet Clinic.

First in Conifer Station, which did not have the Modern Development NAP. It was okay there. They didn't have the Green Initiatives either.

Secondly in Grims Quarry, where the Modern Development is active. And Yes, the neighbourhood disappears again.

I tested retail, vet and restaurant lots in all 3 neighborhoods. When the Modern Development NAP is active the world breaks. When that NAP isnt active the world functions normally.

@crinrict I've not had this retail issue however i had what i believe to be the same type of bug with opening a vet. Not sure if they use the same type of system or not.

It seems to me that when opening the retail store, the neighbourhood is set back to the default, but when modern development is active it ends up removing the ground that has been changed by it. So when Modern Development is new only the parts of ground that has been changed disappear. I tried going to manage world and then go back into the retail lot while it was opened and the ground reappeared, but it was the old skin with trash and plain asphalt. The other surroundings that have been changed by MD also change back to default, however, these don't disappear but simply looks like they used to before MD (no golden propeller, no void critters on the old plant, blue water in the water treatment plant returns to brown). Reskinned (blue) crane also disappears.

 

In short: when opening the store the neighbourhood resets back to default and is unable to load the defaults of some of the reskinned surroundings (ground and crane) so they simply end up disappearing.

 

Edit: As for the Green Initiatives N.A.P. all the new plants also disappear when opening store

World Around Disappears when opening Restaurant

★★★ Newbie

When I travel to the restaurant venue I own and open the business, the world around the lot will go completely blue.  If I restart the game with the restaurant open, and never leave the lot again, it works.   When this started, I had MCCC installed.  I removed it and repaired my game, testing after both, and it still occurs.

 

Helpful info:

  • the restaurant is in Port Promise, in the new world that comes with Eco Lifestyle 
  • I have all DLC 
  • As previously stated, I have removed all CC
  • I have attached an Image.  It shows the glitch I am experiencing 

I use Dine Out frequently, aside from it being bug-riddled, but having to restart my game every single sim day is getting tedious.  Please Help!!
