    Yay! They are great to be on it so quickly!

    I wonder if those people who have problems changed the length of seasons from 7 to 14 days or so. Because it seems the calender etc. may have problems if you change it more than once, as events could switch back and forth, maybe that's the key here? Did you guys change the season length in the settings "Season" more than once?

    Its the calendar for sure it won't let me place a birthday party event on the birthday instead it places it 2 days later and I haven't changed any season settings.

    Thanks guys for helping out with this issue.

    I guess the devs should have enough info now on this easy to replicate issue.

    Best thing to do now while we wait for this to get fixed, if to click me too on this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-S-Planning-events-using-the-calender-not-working-for-long/td-p/6878063/jump-to/first-unread-message to show how widespread it really is.

    OK. Few questions for everyone
    • Which issues happen to you (Event starting right away, Event not scheduling on the date you've chosen, other)
    • Are you playing a pre-seasons patch or a post-seasons patch game ?
    • How long did you set the seasons ? (7, 14, or 28 days) ?
    • Has the game you're playing ever seen any mods/cc ? If so, did you remove them and try without ? (this is to figure out if all the mentioned issues are non-mod related and if a game that previously had mods is affected)
    • Does a fresh save work for you ?
    • Which events do you have issues with ?

    I can schedule holidays just fine, just not events.

    Whatever day I select when creating an event, it will always place the event on the same day (or I think, once a day before that even), then I'll get the question if I want to start this event right now as that will end all other current events. So I can't create them in the future, basically, only ever today :)

    Seasons are set to 14 days. Latest patch installed.

    It has seen mods but I haven't been using them in a while. No mods were or are active at the time of installing and/or playing the game.

    I only tried the birthday event. Don't know if I have the same issue with other ones. And no, I haven't tried a fresh save yet, but from experience with expansion bugs, it will probably work fine xD Can try later though!
  • crinrictcrinrict Posts: 18,734 Member
    Believe that the message to start immediately occurs if the day randomly picked is today. If it randomly picks another day, you don't get it.

    I've tried two more of my old saves now. One started with Vampires (no mods ever), the other started with Get together (tons of mods) and both had the issue. The save I didn't have any issues with was started with Pets.

    Okay so I tried again, and whatever day I select and plan the event on (exactly the way I select them for holidays), whenever I end the process, the event will be placed on one of the greyed out days before the day I'm actually at & I will get the question to "start the event right now". That's how it always happens for me anyway :/

    I did change mine to 14 days. I'll repair it when I get home and fingers crossed it will work then.

    @crinrict ahh fun fact. I just opened the exact same save on my laptop and there creating the events works just fine. I'll try again on my pc. Weird.

    Update: nope still doesn't work :) how strange

    Just installed. I am using a fresh copy of an existing save. Well, I made the fresh copy just before downloading Seasons.

    The event wants to start right away.
    Save is about 2 weeks old
    Seasons set to 14 days.
    Yes, the save did have mods and CC in it, which was why I made a fresh copy before loading. I do have CC back in and only a couple of mods that were updated since the patch.
    EDIT: It works with a brand new save, but not existing ones, even if it's a fresh copy of an existing save.
    It was a dinner party and I tried setting it to happen 2 days' time.

    So I tried this on 3 different saves. One was new, one was my old one and the other was one I was currently testing for someone.

    The new game and mine were fine, the other wasn't. I mainly saw the issue where it just chose a different day for the event than the one I had picked.

    Puzzling

    Do you mind testing mine? My issue is different; no events are being added to the calendar. When I try to add it again, the time I previously chose for the event will be greyed out. But nothing appears on the calendar and no event ever starts.
  • Sheli3Sheli3 Posts: 60 Member
    I just tried deleting the cache file mentioned in the previous comments and repairing the game. Still no luck.

    I did change my season length immediately after the world loaded. Before adding any holidays. I spent 2+ hours making my holidays, so I'll be so bummed if I have to start over.

    I'm having this issue too, with Birthday parties, just set the seasons to 14 days, happens with and without mods. I haven't tried any other events, dived right back into this one save so I could schedule birthday parties for the kids. xD


    Which issues happen to you (Event starting right away, Event not scheduling on the date you've chosen, other)
    -- Event Schedules on different date
    How long have you been playing the save (approx) ? Um... days? I dunno.
    How long did you set the seasons ? (7, 14, or 28 days) ? 14
    Has the game you're playing ever seen any mods/cc ? If so, did you remove them and try without ? (this is to figure out if all the mentioned issues are non-mod related and if a game that previously had mods is affected) Yes it does, yes checked without. I do most of my own trouble shooting so I generally only check the forums after that.
    Does a fresh save work for you ? Too late to check now, will check in the morning.
    Which events do you have issues with ? So far, just birthday party

    * Wedding, goaled event. Event goes into calendar but 4 days after the day I selected.
    * Save is at least a week old.
    * Seasons set to default length, didn't change them.
    * It has. Only mods are MCCC and some mods to have pointy ears in CAS for humans and randomly in the world. Also have CAS and build/buy CC. Removed just the mods first, then everything. Same issues with and without mods and CC in my pre-seasons save
    * Yes, no issues with or without mods and CC.
    * All the ones I tried, wedding, house party, dinner party had the same issue in my original save. After planning the wedding, I tried to do a house party on the same day and it said I could only have one goaled event per day so it thought there was an event on that day but the wedding had gone in 4 days later. Party did the same I think.

    I see a lot of people this happens to, myself included, chose 14 days. Actually, on my laptop I stuck with 7 days and I didn't have this issue at all. So I think that could maybe be the reason?

    Sure can do. Just upload your save somewhere and PM me the link.
