OMG  Only vehicles can use garage doors

* Requires     : Nightlife and/or Apartment Life
* Compatibility: Apartment Life, Mansion & Garden Stuff
* Modifications: Semi-Global (affects all electric garage doors)
* Hack Version#: 1.0

Quick Info
~~~~~~~~~~
Prevents both human Sims and pet Sims from using the electric garage door as a means to enter the garage and/or the house.  They will now be required to use a normal door to enter.  So be sure that the electric door is not the ONLY means of entering the house or garage.  Otherwise, humans and pets could become trapped in the garage after their vehicle drives in!

Effects
~~~~~~~
Vehicles are now the only objects that can open the garage door.  It is most highly recommended that you use this hack along with my "Realistic Billing" hack.  It prevents pedestrians from using electric garage doors to enter your home or garage.  Because every time the garage door opens, it uses electricity which increases your electric bill.  And there is no reason for the lazy Sims to use the electric garage door when a REAL WOODEN DOOR is just a few feet away!

* Check out the readme.txt file for more information.

To anyone wondering, no my "Realistic Billing" hack is not yet available.  I had planned to release it back when FreeTime was out and then again when Apartment Life came.  But I never finished it 100%.  For those curious minds out there, it is basically a Mini Expansion Pack that adds a water/power/trash usage tracking system, power/water outages where real objects in your game will shutoff or power down on the fly (imagine all of the lights going out and your food in the fridge spoiling when you don't pay the electric bill), water/power/trash-pickup billing, massive fixes to bugs with trash bins in general, realistic property tax billing, and a huge pile of other neat things.  It required over 50x more hacking and custom code than all my other hacks combined.  So you can see why it takes me so long to finish, but I hope to have it available very soon.

Yes!  Much appreciated.   Fanku2 
It drives me nuts that Sims use the overhead door when the standard door is right there...  Hell, in some of my houses, there are stairs in the garage that go upstairs, yet sims will go outside, up the drive, through the gate in the fence, then to the front door, etc.  An hour or more of game time later, they get to their destination.  Right above where they were just standing next to the car, near the stairs.  angry  Now they will probably go out the other door, up the drive...

Thanks for this! I'm so tired of seeing my sims use the garage doors, when there's a door inside the garage that leads INTO THE HOUSE! >.<
