maybe that is because you are using move_objects on... you cant place driveways while this cheat is on...

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

Thank you so much I was so tired of having to pave the whole yard just because the 4 adults in my house all had to have their own car. Thank you very much

How did you get the driveway to work?

:?: I've got nightlife and I've got it enabled for custom content but the invisible driveway (and several other things I've downloaded) still's not showing up in my game. I know I've put it in the right place because two of my most recent downloads are showing up but a lot of other things like cutom doors and windows AND THE INVISIBLE DRIVEWAY that I was soooo excited about aren't there! HELP!

You live in the real world. I live in a world of vampires and werewolves; were things go bump in the night. And you know what? I like it! My mom wanted a princess, she got me instead. When you here a wolf howl to the moon you shudder in fear, I howl back.

Oh that's great, thank you!
Can it be placed over terrain paint and still be able to see the paint with the driveway over it?

I want to make a run-down lot, sort of like a dillapidated old farm house and I want a battered old pick-up truck on the lawn with muddy textures around it, rather than on a perfect driveway. This little addition is going to help me do just that. It will also allow me to make driveways using the ordinary tile sets so they will match the rest of the gardens on my other houses.

So thanks for this. I really don't know why Maxis didn't include an invisible driveway as it allows for much more creativity.

Default Wanted different color driveway, but got better!
Thanks so much for this, I can't wait till I use it. I came on hoping to find a differnt color driveway than what the Sims had to offer and now my colors are as endless as the colors of the tiles. Many Thanks!

This is wonderful! I just installed University and Nightlife and have been busy playing those two EPs. After adding a few driveways that really 'uglified' the houses, I came to MTS2 for some recolors. I knew I'd find them and this is even better. Thanks roddyaleixo and thanks MTS2!

Thank you so much for creating this, its just what we need in our game as we are so limited to the driveways they give us. You are wonderful for creating and sharing this with us.

Thank you so much! I had no idea how to place it outside the boundaries! I tried moveobjects on but that didn't work. Not only did you provide me with a cool new driveway, but you also made my day because now I can place it where I want!
You are my hero!
Thank you!

#68 Old 5th Dec 2005 at 2:08 AM
Hmm. Ok. I tried to place it but found that it won't go with moveobjects on (I know people are aware of this) so I made sure it was off but even with it off and locktiles false it would not let me put it down.. What am I doing wrong?
Sorry if I'm putting this in the wrong place. When I tried to search for things on the forums it gave me an error saying it would contact the moderators or something to inform them of the problem and the live chat appears to be broken... maybe it's just my internet.
I'm still really glad that you made this though. It's so cool! Thank you.

did u try locktiles true? i dunno i actually dont type anything in ... until im wanting to place my tiles .. when placing the drive way i just select the invisible driveway from my folder it works just like the reg ones. ? but did you try typing true instead of false?

Im not Weird i just like what i like

#70 Old 7th Dec 2005 at 7:05 AM
yes. I tried it with both locktiles true and with locktiles false. With false on it won't let me place it at all.

What a great idea! Thanks so much for this. I was getting very sick of the few driveways I had, and of having to cover up my entire garden when my sims had more than one car per household!
