Today's update doesn't fix the bug anyway ... unless someone knows different?

The consignment store in my game was working fine, until one day when my Sim had consigned far too many paintings, the store just stopped working... no browse, no buy... not even from the other Sims in the household... I cant even get my stuff back coz the register wont function.

Interesting ... but how do you know that was the cause?  How many items did you consign?

I've still got a problem with the store - when I click on the counter nothing happens :/ I hoped the problem would be solved with Late Night but nothing changed :/

I got this error today. I have two max level artists painting all over the place, and a nectar maker who is selling all nectars of great quality or less.

I trotted him over for his weekly consignment sale, nothing happened. The Buy just kept disappearing from the queue. So I switched to my founder, she had the same issue.

I saved game, logged to main menu, then read where someone had said to cancel consignments. So I trotted my founder back over...she can't buy, and there's nothing to cancel now.

I guess I can either start decorating walls, or just selling them from inventory now...

As an aside, something that occurred to me is to go into Edit Town, bulldoze the store, then replace it.

Think that would work?

It might! The first time it happened to me, I just replaced the register.

Well, I tried to bulldoze the store and replace it.

No luck.

So I tried replacing the register, and no one ever showed up to work.

So I just remodeled the house, and hung the paintings. I mean, I do have 2 stories above ground and 3 below (though 1 is a gallery of the women of violet eyes, and 1 is the "crafting room")

It takes a few sim hours for someone to take charge of the register. I replaced it after 5 and by the next day, someone was there!

Oh?

Maybe I'll go check tonight. If I'm not dealing with elemental invasions and stuff elsewhere.

When I go to this shop I can't even click the register :/ The cursor changes it's shape but no menu pops up. Canceling previous deals won't help because I haven't put anything for sale in this shop :/

I got the shop working again.

I had previously tried bulldozing and replacing. No luck.

I tried Esther's method of replacing the register. Never got a new employee, no matter if I went at 10am, 1pm, or 5pm. The store was always closed.

So i re-bulldozed and replaced again, figuring an employee and no ability was better than nothing. My consignments popped up ready to cancel, so I cancelled.

I can use the buy again!

Interesting ... but how do you know that was the cause?  How many items did you consign?

There were around ten paintings of different sizes, my Sim was a prolific painter... I didnt say it was the cause, I just noticed at the time that there were so many paintings consigned, that was when the store stopped working for that family... ???

I don't think it was the cause, because I have consigned probably close to fifty paintings at one time! That's not counting sculptures, books and whatever else they have in their inventory! I really don't know what causes it, just wish it would stop doing it!

The Consignment Shop is well and truly bugged.  It's going to take a patch from Electronic Arts to make it work like it should.

Yea I know! I was hoping that they would fix it with LN but evidently they haven't!

Problems with consignment store.
« Reply #217 on: November 28, 2010, 11:06:37 AM »
When I was playing a previous dynasty I bought the consignment store but once I purchased it I was unable to buy items there. So I sold it and was then able to buy.
Has anyone else had this problem if so could you resolve it. Or should I just not bother trying to buy it at all.

We've already got a topic for discussing problems with the Consignment Store, so I'm merging this one with it.

I know this doesn't solve anything, but you might find it interesting.

We tried to use a consignment store recently [can't remember where or why, just living in hope?] and the clerk wouldn't do anything ... she just sat there reading a book, and there was no action on the register.  We recognised her name; she was a new friend of our Sim and had said she was in the Police Career!  It seems she was in the middle of changing jobs!!

The following Sim-day, there was a new clerk and everything worked fine.

I'm worried that my store is broken.  Nothing has sold in ages and the number of days each item is up for sale doesn't seem to decrease when I go to cancel consignments.  Would it help to cancel them all and put them back up?

Right now, the consignment shop is a little buggy. Sometimes even with a very high rank in consignment sales ('skill' challenges completed) you will have a lot of items that never give indication they were sold. This doesn't seem to affect everyone, and only some of the time, but if you wonder what's up, you're not alone.

This has happened to me - at first it worked fine, but now nothing is selling at all, even if I cancel and reconsign them.
Do the items actually sell but you don't get the notification?
Or is it that they just sit there unsold?

Sorry if this question has been answered already - I scanned through the thread, but I'm pretty tired from driving all over the state to visit family for Christmas, so I may have read over it.

I don't think so. I always get a notification. Have you tried getting rid of the register and replacing it? If you're not sure where it is, it is under community object, miscellaneous objects in the build mode. Sometimes that works.

Ok I ran thorough this thread an didn't find an answer to my question. Besides all the usual bugs, can you use the consignment store if you are employed at a career, my sim is a cook but is also doing gardening and fishing. I have been selling stuff but I don't have any skill levels for consignment and I don't see where to do challenges? please help!
