Default Is there a modfree way to get back the mailbox?
Hello guys,

I was originally building a café, so naturally I changed the lot zoning to a community lot and deleted the mailbox (big mistake). But as I kept building, I added more floors and realized the lot would look good as a New York style East village apartment building with a café on the ground floor. So then I built apartments on 3 additional floors, but when everything was finished and decorated beautifully I realized that I needed a mailbox to make the apartmentbase lot functional.

Now I'm stuck with this beautiful apartment lot that's unplayable. Of course, I could always zone it back into a community lot and upload it the way it is to MTS, but that would destroy the purpose of having apartments on the upper floors.

I've looked into this issue and it seems you can download a buyable mailbox to the game, but that seems to be a recipe for disaster and the game will likely crash. Also I don't feel like rebuilding the entire apartment building on a new lot the exact same way, so that's out of the question.

So my question is,
IS there another way?

Did I really say that?

Grab the buyable mailbox here: It's not a disaster and it won't crash your game.http://modthesims.info/d/413573/al-...le-mailbox.html
or if you don't care about the M&G recolours there is an extracted mailbox on sims little dream a lot. Once you package and open in Clean Installer untick it and the game will replace it with the game's box. http://daydream58.com/ grab the AL version. You can remove it from your game once you have the mailbox on your lot if you want. This one will change to the apartment mailbox, I've used it for years.

Huge thanks.
