@Kirstey08 What happens if you click yes on the message ? Just means that the existing building will be bulldozed a the new one placed instead.

Hello  @crinrict 

 

thank you for your reply. 

 

But the weird thing is  i don't have existing house. I am trying to buy the first house.

 

After i click yes, it pop out something like " one or more items may not be installed on your computer or the EA account that is currently logged in does not own these item "

@Kirstey08 You'll get this message if the house has packs content you don't own. They will just be replaced so no worries.

hello

 

thank you for your reply. I just find it is so weird that i got this problem after i start to buy packs .When i buy the lots, the house always miss some furniture or miss the door.

 

( i don't have this problem when i am still playing base game)

 

But do everyone has the same problem if they don't own the pack content ? So is this very normal ?

@Kirstey08 What lot are you trying to download ? Does it have cc on ? Usually the door is replaced by another door if you don't own the pack.

The message is normal though if the lot you're downloading contains content you don't own.

Thank you for your reply.

 

i have checked it again and i discovered that the lot that i want to purchase  contain  some furniture  that i don't own . Those are from other packs.

 

But  it is weird that the furniture and door are not replaced ... so it look weird.

@Kirstey08 Yeah, I was under the impression they should be. Just put your own and all should be fine :D
