Re: CC Doors and Windows not functional after september 3th patch (2020)

@krustie3000

What should EA do about it? This is 3rd party CC, not Maxis content. It is up to the creator to make sure they update their content.

@Marloes586

Keep checking with the creators of the CC you use. Hopefully they will start updating their CC.

Re: Doors and windows won't show

★★★★ Novice
@Bluebellflora But EA make a lot of money from CC creators and maxis is well lets just face it crap. If I wanted my build to look like a cartoon then I wouldn't use it but I don't so I don't feel I have a choice. Plus for years its been playable so its not fair that after every update we're in danger of years of work going to waste. I support lots of fantastic creators, they're artists and EA not supporting external cc in their updates are actually doing their customers a disservice. At least give us the option of reversing the update so we can play previous versions of the game where our builds are not broken.

@Bluebellflora Make ridiculous updates about star wars optional for players? Look at what their customers actually need from them. Make updates reversible? Plenty of things they could do apart from breaking people's game. Or maybe trying to employ these fantastic creators who make their games so much more fun and exciting than their box standard furnishings and build buys? Fingers crossed!

@BluebellfloraI understand it is the responsebility of the maker of the cc to update it. But from the other hand it is EA who makes the updates obligated because you can't decline them and update it later.

Also I think there are more player who play with CC then there are who don't play with them. most of these players have been collecting the CC for over multiple years. It's a to great of work to go and check every CC you have ever collected and look for an update, just because EA pushed an update.

EA's content is very cartoony and players have been telling them this for years. The choose to stick with the cartoony look, so people are looking to spice it up in different area's. So yes I do think that we can expect a fix from EA's side. But also from the makers side.

I think there is something to say for both perspectives.

You can disable automatic updates and choose to update at a later time. I know several that do this so they have a chance to update their Mods before installing the update. Or they use a test save to check the Mods. Reverting to their main save game when they have confirmed everything is working.

Actually not just custom content doors and windows, even the King of diamonds classical door from GetTogether is not working.

Hi @leminamcnair 

I believe error 140:95e2d14f:30cc6644 is Twisted Mexi's Better Exceptions. He is aware of the bug and is working on a fix. In the meantime, you can remove it from your mods folder, to avoid receiving this particular error. Good luck and have fun!

@fruchtpunsch So basically they should not update the game further ? Not give us new functionality like the free placement at all ?

 

Don't think that's the solution either.

 

Really hope there will be a batch fix but there might not be.
