Lot Rotation Not Working

[ Edited ]
★★ Newbie

I'm having an issue where I can't rotate my lots at all anymore. Beginning last night, whenever I attempt to rotate a house regardless of the lot or location, I receive an error in red stating "Max Roof Slope Exceeded", followed by the lot returning to its original position. This is extremely frustrating because most of the lots I download are now being placed backward. I have tried repairing the game, and many of the suggestions posted on forums a couple of years ago before EA fixed a similar bug, all to no avail. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated!

Re: Lot Rotation Not Working

@bxbrianx7 I am not experiencing this in my game, so I suspect something may be corrupt in yours.  If you haven't already, please take 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 placing builds on lots in the new save.  If you continue to experience the issue in a fresh save after doing the above, please let me know which lot(s) you are using and which builds from the Gallery where the error occurs so that I can try testing the specific lots/builds in my game (you don't need to provide an extensive list - just a few lots and builds that cause you the trouble).  Please tag me with @BryonyRae if you need further assistance.

@BryonyRae I just started having this problem. Of all the lots I have teted, it is specific to a lot in the gallery labeled at Gothic Church Bar uploaded February 10, 2018. Please let me know if you have found any common problem with lots of this issue.

Hi @animepolkadot 

 

 

Have you tried all the steps suggested above ? Seems to have helped the OP

 

If it's just that one lot though, maybe it's a problem with the lot ?

 

Have you tried placing it in a fresh save for testing too ?

Happy Gaming
