A Fix For The Missing Latipsoh Green Linoleum Floor

Players who have both the University and Seasons expansion packs installed may have noticed the floor tile called Latipsoh Green Linoleum has gone missing, and has been replaced by another floor, Neutral Sand Linoleum. The correct name for the floor still shows in the catalog, but the floor itself is wrong. (For people who have the game installed in a language other than English, the floors may be called something else.)

This download is a simple fix for the bug. Just place the package file into your Download folder and the Maxis floor should work correctly again. This download does not add a custom floor to your game, it simply overrides one game file to make the original floor work correctly. You uninstall it simply by removing the file from your Downloads folder. You should only need this fix if you have both University and Seasons installed. It other game configurations this download should not cause any harm, either, but it will be useless.

Edited to add: This download does not replace the Neutral Sand Linoleum, you should have both of the floors working correctly. Without the fix, you likely have two copies of the Neutral Sand and none of Latipsoh green. This fix only returns the floors to the way they used to be before Seasons.

The catalog image will not be automatically updated, though. You can fix it by placing your mouse cursor over the image and right-clicking while holding down the CTRL key.

This is what the Latipsoh floor is supposed to look like:

This is the floor that has replaced it:

THANK YOU!! I noticed this the other day, and I thought I might have gone a bit batty (-er :D)....

You know your god is man-made when he hates all the same people you do.

Wow thanks for making this.
Looks like Maxis loves to mess screw some things with every EP:D

Thank you, this was really annoying me and I'd used the flooring several times. Since installing Seasons and noticing this I had avoided those lots in case they'd changed.

UPDATE Nov '11: Beacon Falls & Maple Valley are custom TS2 neighborhoods with storylines, add-on families & lots. The Beacon Falls Blog has separate business & vacation subhoods & Maple Valley's Blog has a separate university subhood. All have been fixed using Mootilda's HoodChecker.

Sorry to ask, but this will override the sand colored floor?

I would guess that this fixes the problem of the sand floor overriding the green. :P

Thank you, this was a really irritating little bug. I like that ugly green linoleum.

Oooh! I really missed that darn green linoleum. I never thought I would!

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

nancyw41, it does not override the sand one, just fixes the green one.

Thanks Mellisenda! I kind of like the sand one too and didn't want to lose it.

OooO thank you! I've been using that green linoleum in a house for my story and I was really annoyed when it disappeared. Now I can have this lovely floor back! Hope people won't notice that it wasn't there on some screenshots. xD

Both floor are very nice to me - so I had not to face with a bug.

Currently playing Sims 4 full collection. (and fixing my mods folder)

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! You have NO idea just how much this has been annoying me and how badly I have wanted a fix. If I could hug you I would! I contacted EA about it several different ways and the only response I got was basically - we can't do anything, we're not the right department.
Once more I thank you!

Thank you so much for this fix! I thought I was going insane when I did not see the original tile in Build Mode to match the Lapitosh walls. My sims thank you so much!

Well, this'll fix my color-coded houses :D

I found that the Maxis Light Bamboo floor for some reason now makes the Environment score go waay down - I couldn't figure out what was doing that in one of my houses until I replaced it with another. Is it possible for that to be fixed as well? I'm not sure what EP that came with, but I'm pretty sure it didn't do that before...

THANK YOU! I thought custom content broke that floor and was going to waste hours and hours and tear out my hair trying to figure out which CC did it!

#21 Old 9th Mar 2008 at 1:14 AM Wow, I just thought my computer was being a fucktard again (it does that a lot. Stupid Windows. <kick> ). So, It's not me, this really was sent out all wonky? Thanks, I feel less stupid now.

And it's gone, baby, gone.

I actually need that green linoleum, thank you!

Works fine with UC
I came across this and decided to look today to see if it was there with everything installed (I have UC) and it isn't. I'm about to install this and see if it shows correctly. Thanks! Edit: It does. It's right there where it belongs now, thank you again!
