Was such ruling made for Midnight Hollow and Roaring Heights?

What do you have in mind?  Let us know what you plan to change and the team will discuss it.

@Tiamet

The team has decided that you are still eligible for HOF.  We have decided to make an exception for using the mod to fix the game breaking glitch, however please continue the clean working save with no mods.  Good luck.

Well, I had recently failed my dynasty and was planning to restart it. Now I'm considering different Store worlds, especially Midnight and Roaring.
There are three property lots in Midnight Hollow you can't purchase: Gloomy Garden (Visitors Allowed), Passé Park (Small Park) and Precarious Pub (Visitors Allowed).
In Roaring Heights, there are Downtown Community Garden (Visitors Allowed), Oceanview Park (Small Park), Roaring Heights Visitor Center (No Visitors Allowed) and arguably The Boardwalk. The last one isn't automatically placed, but it obviously was intended for this very town. The Boardwalk's designation is Visitors Allowed, so even after the manual placing it still can't be purchased as property.

Done.  I've updated the Edit Town FAQ page to show lots from Roaring Heights and Midnight Hollow that are allowed to receive a Lot Designation Change.

Nutella, thank you very much!

(Although, I've tried to refresh the page with Edit Town FAQ (it's Rica's post, right?) several times, and still can't see any changes. Maybe I should try another browser...)

The post is right here, and linked to in the dynasty ruleset on the first page, so I think it's a good idea to update the info there too.

So Rica's post is updated now. :)

Well, I failed my first attempt at the challenge  :(, but I'm going to start a new one immediately.

This time I'll add EA-created buildings and lots. I read Rica's post to know what changes I could make, but I have a question. Can I demolish an empty house to place a community lot or rabbithole?

No demolishing empty houses or non-empty community lots to make room for new buildings. You either use truly empty lots or place empty lots using the World Editor.

Good luck with your new attempt. :)

Barring the stuck vehicles causing significant problems, probably not.

I'm not sure it even does that Sherry, I've never noticed overwatch clearing up boats in my games, or even cars abandoned on the roads, I think it can only clean up cars left on an actual lot in a parking space, I could be wrong but it's how it works in my fun games when I use it. Testing cheats and shift click delete is the only way I know of to clean them up, and even then as Trip says I doubt it would be allowed unless it's causing routing errors.

Oh? you mean : Shift, click, object, delete it?
Okay. I just test it. It works. Cool.

And you still need to ask for permission to use TestingCheats to delete cars in your dynasty file. Just making sure that it's clear to everyone.

Really? why? I thought it was just like reset a stuck sim.
And no it's not a car, it's a boat stuck in the middle of the sea...

It's covered in the Tech Talk section of the rules.

You also do not need to ask for permission to open the cheats panel (Press Ctrl-Shift-C) and use a cheat for the following circumstances:
  • 1. Your Sim is stuck .
  • 2. Your Sim loses a trait or has an empty trait slot.  This cannot be done for Sims that were made by EA to have fewer traits.
  • 3. Your Sim has a stuck moodlet that will not go away — such as the Hunted moodlet when no vampires are in the area.
  • 4. Your Sim ages to an incorrect life stage.

Also, whenever a cheat, however harmless it may seem, could be involved, it's always best to ask the challenge team first. Just to make sure you're not breaking any rules.

Okay, I actually tried it (the cheat) on my riverview files and my immortal file is in IP.
So, for confirmation : Can I use the cheat to clear away the stuck boat in my dynasty file?

I feel like someone asked this already, but are the interactive loading screens allowed?
