    I am a tenant. Apart from the haunting event I dont have any other events occur. Yet I've seen people have bug infestations and a cursed book thing. I've got the option turned on for events. Also my unit has mold turned on but no mold appears. Does anyone else have these issues?

    How do I remove For Rent from my game? The lag was so slow this evening that I exited without saving. I simply cannot play with that DLC in my game.
    Ideally I'd like to return it. Just take it away, give me a 50% refund, never let me download it again. That's how frustrated I am and that's how much I hate the pack.

    I'll settle for being able to remove it so ... help! :(

    @Hearts4u totally uninstalled the pack. See her comments here:

    Anyone hear anything about when the Dev’s may have a fix for changing Residential Rental lots being able to be changed to other types of lots? I haven’t been in my game in awhile. Waiting for them to fix some of the big bugs for the For Rent expansion

    This is the most they've told us I believe:

    Amazing. There's been so much backlash because of the major bugs in this pack, but here we are, a week from that last tweet, and we have no timeline for fixes and not even a laundry list showing us what they're actively working on. smh

    The recent video with James Turner's Let's Play of For Rent was... interesting.

    He was unable to save while editing a residential rental lot.

    He had to move his sims out to change the lot.

    The residential rental lots that he had pre-built were more expensive to buy than what they were worth.

    The UI didn't display his new rental units.

    The tenants didn't leave when the lease period was over.

    And on top of all that, he never received any payment from his tenants.

    Lease period part isn't a bug. This means how many days it takes for the Grace period.

    The grace period allows owners to change rent without consequences and tenants to move out without any additional costs.

    The grace period doesn't mean that the tenant now has to move out. If they do decide to move out during that period, your sim receives no compensation (which they would otherwise).

    Residential rentals aren't meant to be run as vacation rentals (for sims vacationing) unfortunately...


    The others are concerning though.

    Though moving out sims to change the lot type is understandable...

    If there's not a patch fixing these horrendous bugs by next Thursday I'm uninstalling the dang pack and building my sims a new place to live. Actually, I've already started building the new house, I'm just wishing I won't have to use it. I had so many hopes for this pack and I haven't been able to play with it at all. Heck, I bought the horse pack only a week or two before buying For Rent, and I've barely been able to play with that either.

    I'll buy the castle kit, eventually, and I'll buy a faerie pack if one comes out, but aside from that I'm not giving EA anymore of my money until this pack is sorted.

    Is not being able to move a sim out by using the telephone to split the household a recent bug.
    I tried to do that because I wanted to play specific sims from a household by moving them to San Myshuno. The phone wouldn't work. I had to use the computer.

    @CK213 I don't own For Rent, but I've had a problem with splitting/merging households in live mode. I've stopped doing it and wait till I'm done with my game play to go to manage worlds and change my households using household manager. Thanks for the tip about using the computer, didn't realize that still worked.
    -No, my almost-elderly mother, I don't think it's a good time for you to try for a baby.
    -Yes, person I barely know, you have my blessing to hang out with Johnny Zest.

    Yep, Known bug. Household Manager works. Lots of "me toos" but can always use more.

    I've had that problem if there is a holiday going on. I have to cancel the holiday then I can split the household and move. It is an ongoing bug.

    Looks like this pack looks and sounds great on paper but in real time for some it has become a nightmare and barely any response from EA/Maxis (Must be concentrating on Project Rene) I did get the pack but will not use it until EA/Maxis takes care of those bugs as I do not want to experience any problems.

    By his own statement, he has to mess arround for a whole hour off camera to make the lot work again after he tried to renovate it. EA is being really crappy with these vague "we know about the issues" statements. And surprisingly aside from a single dev stream about the kits there is *zero* additional info given inside the discord. There is no staff interaction at all just a pile of "sims experts" (who aren't employees) who forward all complaints to the AHQ

    About all the bugs and that really big problem with ruining the saves and stuff... until now, I did not experience something like this and I really hope it won't happen to me. :/
    But what I really wonder... all of you are concerned because there is not a lot we know about what EA is doing to solve those problems. I mean... this is a forum run by EA / The Sims team, or at least there are members on here who work with them? I thought so... so I think / hope they will share their timeline with fixing the issues as soon as possible.

    Until then I really hope to be spared by this very nasty save corruption bugs...

    This and the discord are more places for chatting, not places for tracking bugs in any kind of organized way
    AHQ has volunteers who organize it, a couple of staff who serve as moderators, and most of the staff activity happens behind the scenes. I've been told by the main volunteer organizer that the staff do read every thread there.

    But there is not a lot of communication from the bug-fixing team to the public. The most we have is the TheSimsDirect account, which posts occasionally on AHQ and on Twitter, sometimes a couple of times a week and sometimes only once a month or so. Then we get the laundry lists every couple of months.
    I think a lot of people would love to hear more frequent updates, especially when there are truly significant bugs going on.

    Like most folks here I'm avoiding playing until there are some solid fixes. In fact, I haven't even bothered to start any gameplay whatsoever, I've just checked out the CAS and Build/Buy mode items for now.

    In the mean time, I've been watching James Turner's Rent to Riches series, which has highlighted some... uh, interesting "features". Needless to say, I am far from impressed with the overall state of this pack.

    I knew that the lack of bug testing before packs are shipped was becoming a real problem for the Sims 4, and I fear it's only going to get worse. Quality assurance does not appear to be of any concern to EA/Maxis anymore.

    I found it a little disappointing that when you place an utility item (electricity box or water heater) into a City Living apartment and they break, then you can't call the landlord to fix the issue.

    I do not know if it is a good thing or a bad thing but For Rent has already a 10% discount.

    Even weirder, Home Chef Hustle - which came 3 months before it - isn't on sale. I know Stuff Packs tend to have much worse sales because they're cheaper, but it still seems notable.

    For Rent should be demoted to a game pack because it was designed as one. The should have special bundle kit offers promotions for those who bought it as ep price.

    I think i heard Bust the dust was once a stuff pack demoted to kit- I actually enjoy dust the bust and which all kits had animation and gameplay added. I tend to turn towards video games for those features.

    I'm not playing until they fix the Save File Corruption bug. It's not worth destroying my save for this pack.
    I've been playing other games for now. The bugs in this pack make My Wedding Stories pack look safe by comparison. I really have lost trust in Maxis/EA to be able to release stable content for this game.

    Wow! Actively trying to get more people to buy a broken pack? That is… something else. Something to think about for sure.
