I don't know if this has been said, but over at "more awesome than you" they have a tutorial for street parking which is basically the same idea, but they tell you how to make sidewalk tiles available in building mode so you can replace the tile and everything will go back to the normal direction. You don't have to worry about corruption. I don't know how to link but, just search for street parking and it will come up(I believe it is in Peasantry). It is really easy to do and it will put your mind at ease.

3.)After this step you may now begin to lay your driveway extension piece.
If you have covered the tile in the correct spot, the driveway extension piece, when going ahead to place, will now be sideways or paralell to the road
Wallah!.. now you can begin to bould your garage!

Hope this helped

I made the tutorial in the game and the cars don't drive out the drive they just disappear and reappear, is that how it's supposed to be? Because I don't really like it...

Unfortunately the animations will no longer work correctly. The cars will simply 'teleport' in and out of the lot. You cannot have it both ways, you either got a sideways garage or you got a regular one with regular animations.

Default confused?
followed all the steps and the extension did not turn. Am I missing something? I used moveobjects on cheat. Put on the driveway then deleted the sidewalk in front of the lot. The extension still turned the same direction as the driveway.

Honeygirl -

Did you try making a new lot that was set at a different angle in the neighborhood?

When you place a lot, part of what the game does is give it one of 4 directions. We think of them as north, south, east, & west. If I remember correctly, 'north' is what we call the direction where the driveway doesn't turn. South, it turns backwards. East & west it turns right and left. So if your first try doesn't work, assume you have found 'north'. Put a new lot at a different orientation.

It has to be a new lot. The 'direction' is set when the lot is initially placed. Moving into the bin and replacing it at a different angle does not change the direction.

It seems simple, but I had to play around on several different lots before I found one that worked. It seem the lot adjacent to an L shaped street corner works best? See the pictures for the type of lot I mean.

I used the "move_objects on" cheat

How To Build A Sideways Garage
(Images attached)

1. Place Driveway as you would normally.

2. Remove the sidewalk strip on the opposite side of the lot.

3. Select the driveway extension piece. You will notice that it has already rotated – ie. It is now parallel with the street. Place one or two pieces. (I used two)

4. Build you garage around the extension pieces.

5. Insert garage doors.

6. Add cars. I used additional flooring to extend the driveway to the additional garage. This will not be noticeable if you use an invisible driveway like the one by Roddyaleixo here at MTS2.

7. Finish house, and tada!!! A sideways garage!

I have sucessfully managed sideways entrances from both the left and right of the pictured lot. (See image with yellow car). However I am not having any luck with lots not on a corner. Am I missing something? If anyone knows why this happen please feel free to correct me.

Feedback is most welcome.



I am going to try this. I do hope it works. I will deffinately let you know if it worked for me. Thank you again.

xo



To my knowledge the sidewalks first 3 tiles on each side and also the corner 3 tiles on corner lots are use to teleport ppl in and out of lot such as npc's, so as long as these arent being messed with you shouldn't have a problem.
