View Full Version : Glitching?
28th Jul 2011, 9:49 AM
I don't know where to put this and I found no help by searching anywhere. Basically, almost immediately after my friend told me her build and buy mode was disabled, mine was too. The only thing I can think of that would have caused this to happen is the motherlode and kaching cheats. Fine, sure, don't use them anymore, right? Wrong. Restart the game. What happens? Nothing, still can't build. Used that cheat to be able to buy/build in universities and it only allowed me to buy stuff, not build. And I just loaded a new house and I could both buy and build stuff. So I think it's only on that lot? I don't know, but I really don't want to have to reinstall anything or move them out. Does anyone know what to do?

Do you have disabled these modes on another lots? If not, I think only this one is crashed and you have simply to delete it.
I'm sure that these cheats haven't caused that. 'Boolprop testingchaeatsenabled true' is rather known for destroying the game.
BUT ability to enable buy/build mode and to save the game when it's normally impossible (e.g. when Sim's giving a birth) comes with the InSimenator. Many times I found it helpful :) Perhaps you should try it.

Try this mod, which enables buy / build mode:
Be sure to get the right version. You may have to look in the comments. I believe that the one in post #48 works for Bon Voyage to Apartment Life.
As always, backup your save game before you try this.

It works now, so I'm not sure why it went out. It didn't last for very long. My friend however had to move her sims to a new house.

Well, buy and build mode normally disables when someone is driving an owned car onto the lot (Nightlife, Freetime) or if there's a fire, a social worker or burglar, the Grim Reaper, or the Pets-related police officer, or repo man showing up (there might be another NPC or two that disables it as well). I wonder if one of those events might have been attempting to happen and failed?

I'm assuming the car, as a car pulled into my driveway and then a bit after it finally let me. I'm not sure why it would have glitched, but.

Well, if the car was gone that means someone from the lot was gone and building had the potential to block his entry portal. This may be a safety feature. Though why they couldn't just mark the driveway, garage, and portal "in use" and not let you put anything there is a question; but there's no percentage in second-guessing programmers dealing with code you can't see.

To be fair, it's not testing cheats that destroys the game, it's people using it who don't know what they're doing who destroy their games.
