This mod fixes a bug that has frustrated me for a long time:

When you send a tombstone to a community lot, it loses its death type. When you send multiple tombstones at the same time, they all lose their death type.
Once a tombstone has lost its death type, the ghost of the Sim it belongs to will use the default ghost colour, rather than the colour for their cause of death.

This bug has existed ever since the ability to move tombstones to community lots was first introduced to the game in Nightlife.
After dealing with it for so many years, I decided I had to figure out how to fix it once and for all.

With this mod installed, the death type will remain intact when you send a tombstone to a community lot.
This mod will not fix tombstones that have already lost their death type.

Nightlife or later.

Thanks for this beautiful mod. I found about this ghost-type-loss-when-moving-grave-thing about 5 months ago and I had to recollect my graves and cheat the ghost types back to the original mods. This mod will help, so they don't have to go to the cemetery anymore to keep the ghost type. :)

It always has bugged me when making a graveyard that it changes it to starvation, even when they do die of old age at platinum. With this mod, I don't have to worry about that, thanks!

Thank you. I love my TS2 ghosts. I always kept them on the home lot for this reason. Now I don't have to.

Ralston Griffin reenacted his electrocution at unowned Cedarview Cemetery in Emerald Heights, just like he was supposed to. Thank you!

What's the conflict with Simler90's "Better Ghosts"? Is the same fix included there? Can we use both together so long as we have them load in the right order? Or is this a "you have to choose one" situation?
