Had you read this : http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=97102
your problem is perhaps in the lot orientation. Caution if you use the radiance it dont work the same.

Wow...The video explains it far better than words!
Now why didn't I think of that! *sits in corner, dumbfounded*

ACCD94: I;m not sure that you are doing it right?
First remove the sidewalk, then select the driveway extension piece, it should turn automatically. (If the driveway is already in place, deleting the sidewalk will not cause the piece that is already placed to turn.)

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

In your lot where is the sun ?
just build a wall and..the sun is as the opposite from the shadow (sure ? may be ) then use this link http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=97102
compare your result with the pics, if the sun come from the right front corner (when you are IN the lot)...the driveway dont turn !

4-0-1
3 - 2

0 is the mail box. rotation : sun come from 1 no change, from 2=> + 90°, 3=> +180°, 4=>-90°

I'd recommend trying it with 4 entirely different empty lots from the bin....

all facing different directions...

It's not that you're doing anything wrong...it's most likely your lot is facing the wrong way... or that you inadvertantly saved at some point and now the "direction" of the lot is locked in...

Enter lot.... delete opposite side sidewalk grab garage door.... check the way it's facing... if not right direction... exit lot - go get an entirely new empty lot place it facing a different direction... repeat until you have garage door facing correct direction....

This mighte be a little off subject but since this thread is about sideways garages...it was mentioned once about having two sideways garages facing each other, such as this home. I have tested all possible ways such as, packaging the lot to the lot's and houses bin and packaging the lot to a file to then installing it. Both ways were fails. So the easiest way to have twin sideways garages would be for someone to create a backwards foward facing garage door since it doesn't matter as much if the car is facing in or out.

So if anyone wants to go ahead and make a backwards garage door that'd be awesome!

Please do not upload any of my lots to the exchange, or any other site.

In fact it is, when you see the lot [b]from[|/b] the street, the right end tile of sidewalk facing the lot, must use moveobjects on.

That would be stellar. It would also help with my occasional mental lapses where I forget to put the garage door in until after I've continued building and realize the darn thing is facing the wrong way.
