Also, not sure if this is important but even after you sell the books they pick up the out of stock sign and act like they are reading it.  LOOOL.  I'm deleting all books from my store now.

I made my first bookstore and have the same issue. People take books marked as "for sale", read them for a while, and then drop them just anywhere on the floor. In a matter of minutes, the whole shop is a mess.

Very disappointed with the whole retail content. Can't sell plasma bags, can't sell pictures took by my sim for their real value - they all sell for 12 simoleons -, and now this... I regret I bought it, I won't buy Cats and Dogs until other buyers start giving feedback.

Hi @Skadeth

 

Could you please open a new thread for this one ? This one doesn't have the bug template and that is super useful to have.

 

I'll merge the thread once you have done so.

 

Thanks in advance.

I've tried but I can't! For some reason, after filling in all fields, and attaching a few images, I only have the choice to hit the button "Preview", and in the preview page, there's another "Preview" button that does nothing, but no "Submit" button... What am I doing wrong?

You need to fill some text in the comment box as well. Images are not enough, I'm afraid.

 

Thank you

Another sim took a sales item, now my sim "does not own that item"

★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work, City Living, Get Together, Vampires, Outdoor Retreat, Dine Out, Movie Hangout, Spa Day, Luxury Party,
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a book store, open the store, let sims browse, most sims will take it off the shelf to read the books (and out of stock items as well) but waiting will have a customer take it into their inventory. When a sim takes a book and I want to put it back, I use the reset object, and it falls to the floor, this did not happen when the sim took the book.
What happens when the bug occurs? customers take books off the shelve to read, move the books around as the read them, but today one took into inventory and my sims lost all ownership, as well as the sim that took it
What do you expect to see? Customers look at books, not taking them off the shelves, buy a book and leave. I'll also settle for them just not stealing books and making me unable to sell them in my store.
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? No

It's with toddler (?) patch I think, Sims take books from book stores to read them. I know about that issue, hoping it gets fixed soon, because now sims are taking the books into their own inventory. I used the add to family cheat, and got the book back but because the item is no longer owned by my sim (or the sims that took it) I can't sell it in my shop again, and the publishing option is gone as well.

It was a child Sim, yet I've had child customers in past games ( 1 week or so ago ) and they did not "steal" the books.

 

The images attached show the menu, on the book that she wrote.
