Fixing a Hole in the Floor
« on: October 29, 2018, 10:29:07 PM »
Hi, I have a "hole" in the second floor of one of my houses and was wondering how to fix it. Nothing I've tried so far is doing the trick and I don't want to bulldoze the house. Here is a pic of it. I've tried putting a floor tile there, but can't. Whenever I try to put the stairs in the corner where I had them originally, it says "can't intersect other objects." I'm assuming that the game "sees" an object on that hole or maybe that hole is the "object." In build or buy mode, there is not grid over it either. Help!Hole in Floor2.jpg

Have you tried moving the stairs, replacing the floor tiles and then putting back the stairs?

Yes, I have. Nothing seems to be working. As I said, there is no grid line over that hole. :( I'll try to see if there is anything on the ground floor that is in the way.

Have you ever used constrainfloorelevation on this lot?

Have you tried placing a wall or column underneath it to see if that forces a grid onto it?

Can Sims walk over it? If they can't, what object do they complain about being in their way?

Hi again, I hate to bring this old thread back, but I'm having the same problem again. To answer Seabody, no I've never used CFE on the previous house or on the house that I'm having the same problem again, nor can I put any column under it and my sims cannot walk on it. I tried putting a wall around it, but that didn't work. When I tried to put a floor tile on it, the tile appeared in random spots on the lower level directly below it. When I tried putting a wall around it on the same level, a wall appeared just to the side on the lower level. I'm going to try to reset the household and see if that works to clear it up.

Edit: Resetting the household did not work. Inerestingly, when I looked through the hole, trying to place the floor tile, it appeared on the lower floor. I may just have to move the family out and into a new house.

You may have tried this already, but have you deleted that part of the house so to speak then put columns by that area to make sure there can be flooring put on that spot?

If you want to send me the house I can see if I can help.
