Fixed Maxis Bug: Apartment Lots ... any incoming calls?

When testing a reported issue with the phone call that is part of novel writing, I discovered (by running with testing Cheats Enabled) that all the incoming calls to an Apartment seem to fail. I had errors with the hobby magazine subscription phone call, and a sim phoning up for a chat before I even got to the novel complete phone call. They all failed in the same way.

So, if you've noticed that you don't get incoming calls to your Apartment lots, I suspect you suffer from this same error - if you turn on boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true, and you get a pop-up window notiying you of an error on an incoming call type object, then you have this problem.



This is a global mod. I don't know of any mods this clashes with. There is always the possibility of course, so the pertinent information for the owner of the other object is here.
