One of most annoying thing in AL is when last sim died on apartment lot, his/her urn/tombstone is sended on random community lot.

Fixed version
Fixed log:

- Fixed bug, that accidently delete graves, if you send them to SubNeighborhood
- Move tombstones will activate even if they are any children on lot
- Still watching for bugs, contact me if you found...

My package changed the Grim Reaper's BHAV of sending tombstones. Now program will ask you where you want to place this tombstone:

Thanks so much! I wasn't aware of what AL did with graves as I haven't had anyone die on one yet but I can see that this will be a massive time saver. Cheers. :D

This sounds interesting. Are you required to move the sims though? Can you just leave the urn on the lot if you want?

I would like to know also, because, I could make a graveyard, but sometimes I still like to keep their dead sims in the backyard so that the knowledge sims can see the ghosts and stuff.
Anyways, I think it's a great idea.

On apartments lots you just must moved urns, because anyway it will just been deleted, but on residental you will see message like on the 4th screenshot, so you can decide (if you press OK, nothing will happen)

What I understand is that you can only move graves to Community Lots, right? Is there anyway you can send them to Residential Lots? Do you know any mod that let me send tombstones to residential lots? Because I created this mausoleum for my main family, it's a residential lot one of the family member lives, but I can't send the tombstones there, so I'm having some trouble to get it there :]

You can send the urn to a community lot and you go with a sim to this community lot, klick on the gravestone and select the option "move to home" (Sorry i dont now is exactly in english, i play in german language) and the gravestone move to you residential lot

This is an interesting hack!

Thanks for this

I downloaded this, and not every time i enter an apartment lot it errors two or three times before it even loads (i play with testing cheats enabled). I took it out of my DL folder and things work perfectly. It this erroring supposed to happen? if you need me to i can send you one of the error logs so you can figure out the problem. Thanks!

I realize that it's been a little bit over two years since anyone has posted here, but will tombstones sent to community lots from their orginal home lots (using this) still spawn ghosts? main reason I have never used any apartments, I had heard of various major glitches when sim dies....& I LOVE my transparent friends!!

Hey, I had a bit of a bug. Everytime someone died, the game crashed. I've taken It out but it was good choosing where they go. I had the fixed version I think....

Oh BTW it was working fine untill i put the mansion stuff pack in, if that helps any

Does anyone else experience the glitch mentioned by mlgp7223 where their game crashes when someone dies? I want to download this but I have The Sims 2 Ultimate and that, of course, has Mansion and Garden stuff but I don't want my game to crash when someone dies and I haven't saved or whatever.
