@plzsaysike78 In the video you don't switch back to market place when you go back into the lot. I tested and it works fine for me.

Just saying it worked in my game

 

But at the end of your video, you're not switching back to marketplace

 

It shows what's there for the community space

In an unmodded, fresh install game, I found that sometimes to be sure community lot changes were *really* saved I needed to save the lot, go to "Manage Worlds" (so exit the lot that way) then reenter the lot.

 

So:

Edit community lot

Save changes

Play lot

 

Sometimes failed to show my changes, but:

 

Edit community lot

Save changes

Go to "Manage Worlds"

Play lot

 

That always worked.

 

Learned to do that when I edited two regular lot in old neighborhoods to make Community Lots there. I was only non-buggy if after placing all items for all four lot types if I saved while in each mode, and went to Manage Worlds between all four times clicking save. And yes, stuff would have looked there but disappear. After I go through the process everything would stay saved.

This isn't working. I've download a lot that was saved as a Community Space but I want to change it to a Community Garden. When I make my changes and then click the Community Garden button, I get a loading screen and once loaded everything looks the same so I exit the lot, but I can see that the lot symbol has not been updated as a Community Garden.

 

I've just tried this again with a Sim visiting the lot and making the edits. I tried bulldozing the lot and changing it to Residential exiting to Manage Worlds, then re-entering the lot placing the lot again, changing it to Community Garden. Once I hit the Live button, I get a loading screen and once again it is changed back to Community Space; I confirmed this by clicking on the Community Board and the choices say "Check for Community Space Projects".

 

So yes, this is definitely bugged or EA will not let you change the lot type once it is built or placed. A definitely huge oversight.

 

EDIT: So according to this wiki (https://sims.fandom.com/wiki/Community_space), Sims have to actively vote on the lot type...? If you don't want to wait for that during gameplay, SHIFT + click on the Community Board and chose "Instant Enact Community Space Project (Cheat)" and just choose whatever you want (with your cheats active obviously).
