No, I am sorry. I recently redownloaded the CEP, because I noticed things that used to be in the catalog were dropping in and out of availability. One day there and another day not, but I could not verify if those items were missing from the lots, too. In other words, I could not make a connection as to why these quirks took place. So, I went and redownloaded several things that were favorites just to refresh my files including these shrubs.

Anyway, they are there now and I will keep watch on this lot and see if anything else developes.

Thank you,

HeartDeco

BTW, I had been running debug through SimPE and had forgotten this when I installed OFB. You can't run in debug mode with OFB, I am told, as it plays havoc with your game ( I believe this is intentional by Maxis). I have it now disabled and this could very well have been the cause all along.

I have searched my gmae thoroughly and i can'r find the ball obelisk topiary anywhere. your download says it is in the decorative- plants- section. I cant find it anywhere. I have OFB and AL and the custom Content List says it is definitely in the game.
Help!!!!!!

Now the two topiaries are visible in catalog even without Nightlife


Thank you Andynator 11 for reporting; both topiaries were mistakenly set to appear only if OFB and Nightlife were found. Now only OFB is required, and you should be able to see the topiaries in catalog.

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

So if I "re-download" the topiaries, will they work alone on OFB or is ther an update download?
