when typing "boolprop locktiles false", you should be able to place floor tiles on the street and simillar areas... This creates the possibility to join the floors from the street and driveways, get rid of the sidewalk, etc... I hope i am making sense.. I think i should take out that information out of my thread, because it might confuse people...

Do you belive frogs can bite? If not, then you should, because they do! LOL!

Been wanting this object, great!
And that cheat is "boolprop locktiles false (or) true" - very handy and I don't think moveobjects does the same actually, but I have to check that...

Well I woke up this morning thinking I had to make something like this and you've gone & saved me the trouble - so big thanks.

The only question that remains is why Maxis didn't ship this option with the game - like doh!

It does. :nod:
Locktiles is alot safer though because it doesn't include the possibility of accidently deleting the mailbox or something.

i love this!! i requested for something like this the day i got nightlife lol. I hated the maxis driveways. Except for the yellow brick one, but somehow they messed up with that one, because there is also a floor in the same pattern but that one is a bit lighter so they do'nt even match. So again THANK YOU!

I'm just a guy, who likes guys :D

Lovely. I got sick of those awful garages the moment I looked at them, and I was like, "oh my, do my favorite Sims (to whom I give everything) have to place this monster on their beautiful garden?" THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!

Ou melhor, já que somos ambos brasileiros, vou ignorar esse bando de gringos e te agradecer em português, garagens invisíveis são como um sonho pra mim, a Maxis pra variar fez um trabalho detestável... :salute:

Thanks for your compliments Luiza and everyone, i really appreciate them! Its flattering to know you are making people happy with such simple things.. and this motivates me to go on... You know.. Even while I'm sad or upset for something in real life (like now), its really nice to get in here and see wonderful compliments by our huge and fine community... These simple things usually make me stronger, making me capable to face my problems and solve them. Just because I know somehow I do get valorized... even if its for silly things... But these small silly things gets me to think huge
I don't know why I am typing this here.. I just felt in the need to do so.. but however, i don't want to go offtopic..
Once again, thank you!

I was hoping people would make some recolors, but I didn't even think of this, what a great idea. This will come in very handy, thank you.

Brilliant Idea. But I am having problems. I downloades the inveisble driveway and the recolors by Skyx. Now I can't get the driveways to stay. The extension will stay but not the driveway that crosses the sidewalk. I read about the boolprop locktiles true/false. Maybe this will cure my problem.
