[OPEN] Failed to Compute Cost Error Message with downsized Flat Round

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

This just happened during a build I have been working on for several days. The highlighted box cannot be deleted. I get the "failed to compute cost" error message. I can't demolish the lot or replace it. This happens in build and live modes. I have tried using different lots and get the same results. I have repaired the game and started a new game, still the same results. I just want to finish this build Frown

Re: circle-shape foundation

@blooossom please try the following steps: 1) remove any mods/CC, 2) clear your cache, 3) repair the game via Origin, 4) start a new save, and 5) test the circular flat piece in the new save.  I'm advising this because it sounds like their may be corruption in your game, and taking the steps above should remove it.  If you still experience the issue after following these steps, please tag me by typing @BryonyRae

Have you tried to clear your game cache and delete the localthumbcache.package from the Sims 4 folder to help with troubleshooting.

Re: Failed to Compute Cost Error Message

@nualla_6109 would you be willing to upload a test version of your build to the Gallery?  If so, just call it something like "Test Compute Cost Error" and let me know when it's available for download.

Hello!


I'm not sure if Nualla has gotten back to you, but I also am having this error on one of my builds. 

 

I've tried repairing my game a couple of times now, and I've deleted my cache, and also deleting all other rooms on the lot to see if there's an issue with another item. It still occurs. 

 

Bulldozing the lot results in the game freezing.

 

If you'd like me to upload my build into the gallery, I'd be willing.
