I just wanted to take the time to thank you SO much for this! I downloaded a custom neighborhood that I love, but I was disappointed that I couldn't build as many houses on it as I had thought. Now with this I have a LOT more places that I can build! I can also finally have that haunted mansion on a hillside now!

Well, quite frankly, I enjoyed it. But, here's the catch.
I have found out that you can change max lot sloping even higher when you go into the neighberhood.
This part here:
; If the neighborhood terrain slope within the area going to be occupied by the lot is greater than this, then, lot plop
; get disallowed. The angle is in degrees and is measured between the points having the highest and lowest elevations in the
; lot area.
is I believe is where you have altered the value, enabling more space for lots.
Here, you have entered the value of 40.0 and the # before the 20.0
I have tested this, and found ways to put your lots on steeper terrain. Where the ##.# is, I entered 89.9. During tests, if I entered anything higher than this, I can't place any lots on any area of the neighberhood.
So, how to make your maximum of your space, enter the value (DON'T INCLUDE THE PERENTESIS as I've put them there to point where you change the value) 89.9. this puts the maximum slope at 89.9 degrees, where it is almost vertigo. It will alter the terrain, but at least I can make more cliff-side houses with a nice view. the problem is, that you need to put decking to support your house and lots of moduler stairs to allow access to differn't parts of the house. But anyways, because of this, I can now make more unique houses.
Now, my other wish, how do I create lots bigger than 5x5? But anyways, this gives me the freedom to put houses where I can't before.
Quix, I haven't noticed any change in game play. The Sims act as usual.
JDonahue, kudos to you! I offer to change the file to higher values if people wish, i haven't tried out any higher than the 40% though. I play the game so little now adays (getting ready to have a baby on the 30th), the 40% was good enough for me. Thanks for the info! :D
This sounds like a great hack and I'd love to try it, but for some reason I don't have an EA games file in my program files folder. I can't get to C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Sys..... help me!
I can't download this, it says it's not on the server. Help, please, I need this! (unless someone knows a better way to fix the problem of not being able to place a lot - even where it had already been placed)
On Thursday, December 29, 2005 @ 9:12 a.m. Central Standard Time (GMT-6) the two downloads above gave me an error and said that they were not for download. I'd really like to get this installed in my game. I think i tried it bout before but didn't realize I was supposed to place it in all game folders, TS2 & Uni, plus I have now added NL to my game collection. I cannot find the files on my hard drive where I downloaded them before, I must have deleted them, so I'm very interested in downloading these files. Screenshots of the error messages I received attached.
