I have this unrelenting fascination with houses, bordering on obsession, so consequently I download far too many. The fun thing is to just tour the property, but every now and again I do happen upon a particular house plan that captures my fancy.
And therein lies my dilema. I do not always like the choice of decoration, and rarely like my pre-made houses to be furnished.(Simply a personal preference, not meant to disparage anyone's tastes and excellent efforts)
So I make my changes, and in the interests of the KISS effect (keep it simple stupid)(if you knew me, this practise is self-explanatory) so as to not overload my game too much, I usually replace the walls and floors with Maxis *ugh* content, delete the unwanted items, repackage the house (for my own private use). I then exit my game, and using Clean Installer delete all the unwanted files that show up.
Thus far, that practise has proven quite effective, until..........today.
No matter which angle I approach a bay window from, I simply cannot delete the items placed on the windowsill. Consequently I cannot also simply delete the bay window (cannot delete objects with something on them).
I don't want to have to resort to my other practise of mapping the entire house out, and rebuild from scratch, but I just can't get rid of these items.
So............any suggestions???

Can't you use the move_objects on cheat, then delete the window?

look at some of the boolprop build cheats to help. i run into this problem ALL the time. i hate it when i get a house that uses elevated floor tile instead of a roof, so i spend all the time doing that.
