Yes, but we have been over this with the OP many times. They do not wish to use any form of story progression and are pretty adamant about it. It is not possible to separate out the genetics portions of NRaas SP from the rest of what the mod does, whereas with AwesomeMod Story Mode can just be switched off and genetics are not a part of that.

It wouldn't be too bad if there was a junkyard in Bridgeport. But there is no routable space left for junkyards. The place where I built my Sim's house was previously occupied by water. It was built on that street with water on all sides.

And no, I am not going to get the fixed version of Bridgeport because that would mean starting a clean save, and I've already made more customisations to Bridgeport in my save than I can count. I'm not interested in manually customising the same world twice. That's why I didn't start a new save in Moonlight Falls after my old save became corrupt and I hadn't saved any backups.

I do have plans to attempt to rebuild some of the community lots missing from Bridgeport that I had in Moonlight Falls over the sides of the road surrounded by water. But that's going to be quite stressful to do. Unfortunately placing the original community lots on those terrains is out of the question, as it usually results in everything being placed underwater. Or otherwise not at the desired level. Compared to the top notch developers that built the pre-made community lots, I am a novice. Though I can replicate some community lots, it takes a usually unnecessary amount of work to do.

Yes. But the last time I checked, it also did things that I didn't want it to do. And I need AwesomeMod to do things such as generating Sims with a variety of voices instead of just the first voice with the centre pitch. I can't quite remember what else I need AwesomeMod for off the top of my head, other than being able to see vehicles on the map and the Sims that are driving them, but I definitely need it for other things besides just more unique faces and voices.

Awesomemod is pretty much a take it as he made it and deal with it.


If that's the case, then why are there all these options to enable or disable various settings that AwesomeMod has? It wouldn't take too much to make it so that vehicles can spawn at public community lots. But someone would of course need to know exactly what they are doing.

(blinks) It doesn't work that way. AwesomeMod is a Core Mod and its programming is not open sourced. The only person in the world who can alter it is Pescado, as he retains and controls the source files until such time as that changes (likely never going to happen). It's not a matter of knowing how. The controls that are there by way of its config mechanism are there because he wants them to be there. The aspects of the mod that are not controllable by way of its config mechanism are not there because he doesn't want them to be.

What you have is a feature request. It must be directed to the mod's developer, one way or another.

Well I would have done that. But I don't remember the details to register a new account on MATY or access my old account (assuming I had one, I remember having one before) so I can't contact Pescado directly.

That is, however, the only way. Perhaps someone who does have an account registered can help you get through that, though. But again, I wouldn't have too much confidence that the request will be treated warmly.

Actually I was asking for myself because I actual edit every NPC in the game in every single world. If this thing can resolve that for me, saves me a lot of OCD time.

I am really not sure what you are talking about. So forgive me if I am saying something that you may already know. But you can actually "add" empty lots to a world. If you want a junk yard, just add a "blank" lot of the same size where they permit you, usually flat ground next to a road. Then you can plop in a junkyard.

I've added many new lots to my Bridgeport. And this is done in edit town, in game, so you do not need to restart a new save.

I know how to add blank lots to worlds. I'm no stranger to this. Problem is that there aren't a lot of places in the world where I can place lots.

The terrains are either unrouteable, too small to place or build any decent lots, or would be positioned very awkwardly. Like if I try to add blank lots on the side of the street that is surrounded by water, and then place any pre-existing lots from other worlds, it usually causes the lot to be underwater.

And even if I try to constrain the floor elevation, it usually results in screwing up the lots when I adjust them to the correct level. When I flattened the Bridgeport Eternal Rest Cemetery, I had to take all the buildings apart and rebuild them.

I managed to get the "Bayless Memorial Junkyard", the "Fire Department", and "Aleister's Elixirs and Sundries" into Bridgeport without the floor elevation getting screwed up - probably because I flattened the ground prior to adding each of the lots to their respective places. So now I should at least have some things to detonate, even if they might not stack up as quickly as the cars did.

use "SetImportedTerrainOffset (value)" either + or -, in edit town prior to placing the lot.

eg.
SetImportedTerrainOffset 1
SetImportedTerrainOffset 2.3
SetImportedTerrainOffset -3.5

Thanks! :D

I had no idea. Well the terrain level is a tiny bit off since I didn't know about this cheat. But I might be able to fix it if I rebuild the lots. Since I'd just be rebuilding the lot at the same time as taking it apart, it should be just time consuming more than anything. Unless there's some way to adjust the terrain without having to rebuild or reimport the lots.

I'm not sure... you can try saving the lot into the bin and replacing it, then adjust accordingly. But if anything, it helps for future references when you are placing a new lot down. You can adjust it down to the decimals so get it extremely precise and even.

I do so wish that I could get some of the terrains to be more routable. Since this terrain clearly should be routable.

It's not routable because of the trees.

Is that area to the back of the city hall? It is routable, next time I'm in bridgeport I can take a picture. You just have to choose the right size, hold the alt key while trying to place it. I do remember I have 3 lots on there, the middle one needs to be on the road to the back, not the front.

If there are trees in the way, the game automatically deletes the trees upon placing the lot. Also when I try readding the same lot of the same size that used to be there, I can't place it.

No, you can't delete EA preplaced lots and expect to get it to fit. Those were placed perfectly in CAW and any deviation would not allow you to manually put it back in. Most of them anyways.

But make sure you have this tool: https://modthesims.info/d/471164/ad...01-16-2014.html

When you look at a large plot, it doesn't even need to be flat. Choose a small lot like 10x10 and just roam the area to see if you can find some green. If it can it means it is placeable, then you slowly increase the size of the lot until it is one you like and can work with and also can be placed down. Holding the alt key, sometimes you need to place it slightly off the road or rotate it.

I'll take some screenshots of my Bridgeport and let you see where I added lots.

Ah yes. I do have that mod. Too bad it doesn't let me replace the common consignment store that is added to other worlds with the larger consignment store that is found in Twinbrook.

So here's a couple of shots of my Bridgeport added lots. It's nothing spectacular, but done in game through Edit Town with just EA Bridgeport, not the fixed ones.
