Default "Can't intersect other objects" bug
I've found a bug with the LotExpander with an error, "can't intersect other objects", which could occur even when there is no such object.

This bug has existed in all previous versions of the LotExpander and LotAdjuster. The new version of the LotAdjuster will avoid creating this problem, but will not fix any existing problems created by running previous versions of LE or LA.

If you currently have this problem on your lot, it can be fixed by using SimPE to delete the VERT (vertex layer) record within your lot package. The record will regenerate, but will only contain information for new objects, or existing objects which are subsequently moved.

Because of this, I would recommend that you backup before editing your lot package in SimPE and that you test thoroughly before sharing such a lot.

For anyone who wants more information about this bug, please look here:

This saved the day for me! I converted a community lot store (I've wanted to try that every since learning about the lot conversion cheat) into a lovely home for my sims....only to realize that the yard was pretty much non-existant. For me, at least a medium-sized yard is a must (I like my sims to be able to have fun outdoors as well as indoors!), so I resigned myself to the fact that I wouldn't be able to play a family on that lot. Then I found this....and the problem was solved in a matter of minutes! Thank you for this wonderful program!

Yes, all current versions of the LotExpander and LotAdjuster should work with Nightlife, OFB, and Pets.

The LotExpander will work for any combination of expansions, up to and including Free Time. If you have any expansion pack which was released later than Free Time, then you should be using the LotAdjuster.

Even if you only have the base game and no expansions, I would recommend upgrading to the LotAdjuster, which is actively being updated and has a lot of new features. The most recent version of the LotAdjuster is available here:

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Then use the LotAdjuster. The LotExpander is obsolete and unsupported.
