Wow so it took me forever to figure out where i put my question...about 30minutes...That'll teach me to leave after posting a new topic lol! So I worked on the problem...right now I have no idea if that worked bc right after I bought a new register the consignment store guy decided to close the store at 4:15 pm! Usually it closes at like 7...or maybe he closes it at 4 on a Friday? But anywho I'll go back after my sims have slept and see if it worked

Nope that didn't work....


Edit: However when I cancelled my consignments I already had done previously it worked just fine! :)

I didn't have a lot of time to test much last night, but I was able to delete the cash register, but I was unable to find a new cash register with buydebug. Maybe I'm just blind.

I noticed a register in buy mode, but not sure if it is a workable one or just for decoration.

I believe it was in electronics in misc. section.  That is what is making me wonder if it is working one, because if it was for show it would be in decor.

The only place I have been able to find all the cash registers is under community objects for the community lots.

I went to "Edit Town", double-clicked the Store, Build/Buy mode and then used the 'eyedropper' on the existing Register.  They are all separately listed [Nectar Merchant etc. etc.] in the Buy screen that comes up.

I added a 2nd register to the store - that spawned another NPC.  But neither Register will function, and only one of them gives the * when clicked.

Yah I couldn't get it to work for my game. I'm planning on starting up a new game in Twinbrook and see if that helps. :)

Got home from vacation today and fired up my test character for the da Vinci Challenge. The starting consignment shop character I believe was Cornelia Goth. But, I believe people have been saying that their problems started after a switch was made and sure enough, Cornelia had a baby and was replaced by Christopher Steel and that seems to be when the well ran dry. At 5 PM — absolutely no sales at all. But, the good news is at least the "fix" is simple enough — canceling all existing consignments and then consigning again did the trick.

I struck out my post about deleting the cash register. I'm sorry for the misinformation. I'm surprised one isn't easily available in-game. Honestly I expect everything you can delete with cheats to be found somewhere in buydebug, but I might be wrong.

Carl, you can delete it and replace it. It seems to be working for me, when I stop getting money at 5, I check and if it says cancel consignments, I do that. Than I Shift+click anywhere and hit buy on this lot. The cash registers are under, well I forget I'm going to open my game and take screenshots. Ok, I know cheats might not be for everyone, so since I was just going to check it out, I did not put the cheats in. I already owned the place, so I hit real estate, build on this lot and then I took the screenshots.

Metro my problem was not being able to buy or sell anything period after starting a game in Sunset Valley (I like to do all my challenges in Sunset because I'm most familiar with where stuff is).

Did you ever get your issue resolved, Delgar? By the way, I like SV probably the best now as well. The empty lot across from the consignment shop is my new favorite location since it's so close for quick sales.

Not yet. I started a new game in twinbrook to see if my issue is just sunset valley, but I haven't had a chance to consign something yet.

Delgar, I've also had this problem.  In a pre-existing game, the cash register at the Consignment Store never worked.  In the Random Wishmaster challenge I'm currently playing, it was working and then it stopped.  None of my sims' stuff has been sold for several days now, and they can't buy anything either.  Both games are in Sunset Valley.

I had actually just started a new game in sunset valley to test out some ambitions stuff before failing miserably at the random wishmasters challenge, and I was unable to buy or sell anything at the store from the begining. I'll see if my twinbrook is bugged as well, hopefully this is all resolved before I start the Da Vinci challenge. :)

...hopefully this is all resolved before I start the Da Vinchi challenge. :)

If EA does not release a patch soon to fix the consignment shop bugs, then I may flip flop da Vinci and Alphabetical Heartbreaker in the schedule.

Just chiming in to note that one of my existing games in SV works fine with the new consignment shop, so it's not a universal bug (it rarely is, which is why it's such a pain to fix). But I'm not using sales toward a career, either.

I have a quick question, can teens consign? I sent my teen down to put some of her paintings up and she couldn't and I want to know if it the bug or is it because she is a teen. Thanks!

I am totally fed up with this stupid consignment store.  It's a great idea - too bad it doesn't work.

Following Metro's suggestion, when the register at the store stopped working I cancelled all the consignments my Wishmaster sims had at the store.  Couldn't re-consign them as the cash register still doesn't work.  Now the sculptures are stuck in my sim's personal inventory and I can't figure out how to get them out.  Does anyone know how I can get those items out to sell them?
