Re: Lot type changed with new update

If you can use cheats I fixed it by using bb.enablefreebuild because I too had already saved and when I sold my "business" it deleted my Sims.

 

The Lot I played on I don't believe was another type, but it was in Newcrest.

 

This happened after the latest update, no issues before.

Hi @SepticeyeSav 

 

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

Happy Gaming

Re: [WORKAROUND] Lot Types Change/ Business Funds for residential housing

[ Edited ]

On PS4, I've also seen this in my game. I loaded a lot after patch 1.27 and it is a residence that was on the former Stargazer Lounge. On the map it was listed as incomplete and once in the household the lot type was listed as a business with no business funds and you couldn't change the lot type. I moved the family out, was then able to change the lot back to residential and moved the family back in.
