I was wondering you'd consider making a hack that will allow sim's living in apartment's to move gifts they are left. Gifts, such as date flowers, genie lamps, etc, are unmovable when given due to being on/in the common area of the apartment and end up cluttering up the lot to the point the lot becomes unplayable. I know there are cheat codes, but they just give errors for me or just plain dont work, also it'd be nice to simply have them capable of picking them up and moving them, such as the 'gift' computer that came with an earlier ep, that the sims open and lands in there inventory...anything basically would be such a welcome reliefe!
Thanks for reading

Ranger.

I know that for me, when the gifts get dropped, if I go to buy mode, and grab it in buy mode, and then set it in the house, I can then go get it.  I know you can't place things outside of that is considered the sim's rental property, but I have managed to move the things inside where they can pick them up.  

To be clear, I have not attempted this with date gifts, or anything, just the free computer present.

The free computer is the only thing that I am able to move, but I have the sim do that as the game treats it differently. Why EAxis didnt choose to treat all dropp-off's in a similer manner for AL is beyond me.

If anyone could figure this out, I'd be very grateful as well. Moveobjects on doesn't seem to work for gifts from other characters and I don't want piles of things sitting on my porch forever. I don't mind just using other cheatcodes either, if anyone can figure out what works.

Can you please state your latest expansion pack and list what gift objects could not be picked up off the floor/ground in the commons area? Gift objects such as date flowers, flaming bags of poo, custom novels and so on.

This is a problem that's been mentioned a lot on MATY, and is something I gather is exclusive to apartments. It's to do with the common area not being part of the apartment issue, and I hear from there it's anything dropped off as an outing or date gift. I don't know if it's only some things or all of them, as I haven't played apartments that much.

Which reminds me. I've heard of an alarming problem regarding sims' deaths on apartments - when the last sim dies the gravestones get moved to some random place, and the people complaining of this issue can't always find the tombstones :? No idea if this is fixable by the community or not :dontknow:

This was also mentioned at Simbology.com too about the apartment issues people were experiencing with the objects being left in the commons area when they weren't supposed to be. Newspapers is one of the minor problems when a tenant or a walkby picks up the newspaper and goes into the commons to read and then put the newspapers down. Then it becomes ruined. My Sim then can't bring the newspaper in.

Yes, this issue is one of my biggest pet peeves with Apartment Life. What were they thinking when they designed this EP? I heard that some urns or gravestones could not be reached by adults if they were on a random lot in the Uni hood.
