Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.75.125.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Choose a gig that is specified as being a room addition. Then try build a room.
What happens when the bug occurs? Won’t allow you to build a room. A message comes up saying you can’t add to the existing lot.
What do you expect to see? I expect to be able to add a room and not decorate the other rooms as that is what the gig specifies.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. After downloading Dream Home Decorator.

This occurred on both commercial and residential gigs. I have been able to just renovate an existing room but it is annoying as the gig is to create another room.

@Shanz0313 Could you add some pictures of the lots ?

 

Was this for the gigs you went to without pop-up ?

 

 


 

EDIT: Please use the following specific threads if you have the issues for either of these types of gig

 

  • Arcade Add-Ons (looks like ate least some of them count as room renovations for some reason)
  • Appartement: For obvious reasons, these don't work. Apartments need to be blacklisted.

 

Listing a few lots that seem to have issues (please use this thread)

Same issue here. With the “room addition” gig I simply can’t add a room. Or build any walls for that matter. I’m pretty sure it’s just a bug in the new pack that needs to be patched.

@josha1996 Could you also post a picture of the house ? I think it depends on the house so a bit more info would be helpful

No, these were gigs that I had the pop-up appear for. Will do another room addition gig soon and take pictures. Do not have from the ones I already did

‌This happened to me just recently, on a commercial gig. I wasn't aware that it was a commercial as it said "home owner".

This was the first add a room gig I took, and am very leery of doing anymore. Recently did a renovation, where I was able to basically destroy the current lot and rebuild. This however wouldn't even let me move anything, add anything or do anything to the lot. Usually I will save the lot just before doing the gig, in case of issues I can quit without saving. I didn't try to leave and redo it that way this time though. Figured it was an issue in game.

Sadly it cost some rep for my decorator.

No mods used, so that is not to blame.

 

Also on a previous job, one of the clients stood on the counter....

Just moved the counter and fixed it but I have read of others having issues with clients clipping thru areas that they were unable to communicate with them.
