Default Custom Rabbithole building issue
I've got some rabbithole rugs and doors with which I plan to create custom lots. Only problem is no matter what I name the lot it has the default rabbithole name. For example I name the lot Ye Old Sheriff but when I go to live mode its simply police station or whatever. Is there someway around this so it can have the lot names I want?

The rabbithole name is always the name that's displayed in live mode. Apart from modding the rabbithole rugs, the only way to change the name would be to have a sim purchase the lot, or to use a debug enabler mod. It is not possible to rename the rabbithole at world level, this information has to be stored in the save game. So if you rename a lot in one world and then transfer that lot to another world, the name will be reset back to the default.

I see. Say I build this lot on builder's island to put in a custom town, its still going to have the default name?

Yes, if you re-read my above post I gave you the answer to this.

Just making sure it worked that way there too.

It is annoying- when I shared my custom worlds, the only way to have my rabbitholes named correctly was to share a save file too, or have people rename the rabbithole themselves.

Is this something with 1.69? I am on 1.67. I may be totally wrong here but I have used many RH rugs in my worlds and the lots are named what I have named them. I will check next time in the world I am working on in my version with the rugs, but I have never noticed a change. I also used rugs in my Greek Islands world and never saw this as I recall.

If a change with 1.69 it is another good reason that I have stayed with 1.67.

It will be interesting to see more responses as I am pretty sure I do not have this issue.

The lot name sticks of course upon export. The OP was talking about the name of the rabbithole itself, i.e. the rabbithole rug in this case. These are named something like "Custom school rabbithhole rug" and as simsample said, any new name you might give it is stored in the save, not in the lot information. So if you export the lot (in game or in a world in caw) the name of the rabbithole rug reverts to whatever the creator of the RH rug named it.
It got nothing to do with 1.67 or 1.69.

I just checked a game with RH rugs and the rug name does show in live mode if you click on it. I don't think I had that in the past but maybe I did and it just did not bother me? I may look at changing the name of a rug or 2 just for the heck of it, not that I do not have anything else to do. LOL Will add to long to do list.

Yes, I was talking about the rabbithole name as opposed to the lot name- sorry for the confusion.

The rabbithole name is stored in the savegame I think because a sim can rename it when they purchase the business.

I also misread the original post as it can be read 2 ways depending on how we read/interpret it. The poster was intending A and I read the wording as B.
