I can not say for sure since when this error exsist, because I never used this fridge before. But yesterday when trying to place this GTW fridge I realized this error. I tested the fridge with and without mods/CC. So just thought to inform you about this.

City-Living is the only one purchased but not installed, because of "lacking" diversity. And why should an over 1 year ago uninstalled pack cause the GTW fridge problem? I really don't think so.

Since the st...* fridge kept bugging me I re-installed everything from scratch. Cleaned out Origin also, and now the fridge works! Still no clue what the problem was. Thanks for hanging in there with me and trying to help Standard smile I guess we can close this thread, or mark it as solved. At least for me, unless someone else is also running into this issue.

Have you tried repairing your game? I tested this in my game tonight while I was working on a lot and I didn't run into this issue.

I always make sure to go through all the repair procedure incl. generating a new game folder before I make a bug report. It's only this particular GTW fridge. All the others are working fine. So I'm pretty sure that the problem is not on my end. There are also 2 of the same hat styles (double) with same swatches in CAS which isn't my fault either.

I also tested this in my game and have no troubles.

 

What kind of lot are you trying to place it on ? Home lot ? Retail Lot ?

The first test was on a private lot inside a house. I  tested it again outside and inside 3 hours ago in a brand new game and still get the same error.

No clue what the problem is with this fridge in my game. Not that I need this fridge, but it makes me wonder what's wrong with it since every other fridge is working just fine.

 

It's the refrigerator "Chillbox 2100" from "EP - Get To Work"

That is in deed weird. I've tried Apartments, stores, home lot, inside and out and I can't duplicate this at all.


Do you have moo on ?

 

Maybe repairing twice will do the trick ?

No, I don't have MOO on. Maybe a complete new install would help. But why should I put my self through all this just for one fridge? Not really worth it to be hunest. Not using it anyways. Not sure if I want to live with this bug now that I know it exsists whether I use the fridge or not lol. Should my brains find no rest on this matter, I will do a complete new install and let you know about the results Wink

It's a bit hard to fix though if you're the only person that has the issue.

 

Going to tag this as needs input to see if we can find someone else with this issue.

 

EDIT: Maybe it has something to do with the lack of a pack though. To be sure: Is City Living the only one of your packs you currently don't have installed ? You have rest listed in the first post ?

It could be the latest patch bugged something but only if you don't have a certain pack. To test that, I needed to know which packs you have installed and wanted to make sure I understood correctly.

As you got it solved now, I'm going to mark it as solved.
