Say what??!!! What is the cap? I've been working to be able to build houses so my daily reward will go up. You say in' that too has been taken away? Bummer!
Yes. The cap was introduced quite a while back actually. There's a lengthy discussion about tv and whatnot here. Perturbee's post on Oct 20th in that thread is pretty definitive.

That is even worse than having a cap. :lol:
Thanks a ton for this info and link. I missed this altogether. This is information I need to know! Depressing but still need the knowledge. *goes to read*

I went there and re-read that entire thread. I actually participated in the middle of it but had not followed it to the end. Thank you so much for re-directing me to this very informative thread.

So, if I'd only started in Dec of 2012 rather than I think April of 2013, my Sims world would be a lot different. This is off-topic for this thread so I'll stop there but THANKS!

Along the lines of demolishing a house and replacing with a new home. I want to do this with one of my homes that is currently occupied by a family. Do I need to officially relocate the family to an empty home while their new house is being built, and then relocate them back in? Or can they just stay at other houses without doing the move? I wouldn't want them to get disappear somehow! Thanks :-)

To be able to demolish a house, you need to relocate its residents first. After doing so will you be able to open up the green bubble house and have the option of demolishing it.

A tip though: put all the current house' furnitures in your inventory before demolishing the house. :)

Thanks ! Definitely putting everything in the inventory, I spent a lot of time on the house, but the teen idol mansion will be a big upgrade in space :-)

true that! unfortunately for me, I managed to save up already for the teen mansion, but since i forced return home my sim when he was already about to come back to town, he got stuck midway and my game crashes when I try to get him! :oops: :evil:

I had no choice but to restart the game! TT^TT i lost 100LP in the process.... :(

I almost started a new thread, but I think this question kind of belongs here. Anyway, I want to put a Teen Idol mansion in my main town where all the premium lots have already been built on.

I have a Designer House on a premium lot that I think I will take apart down to the grass, and then demolish to create a fresh lot for the Teen Idol house. The one thing I'm confused about right now is what happens to the value of the second floor I added to this pre-built one story home. Will I lose the 1 million § that is cost to add the second floor? I'm assuming I can't put the second floor I purchased in inventory... :ugeek:

Has anyone dealt with this, and know what happens? I hope the question is clear. If not... just ask.

When I deleted a second floor, I only got the money for the rooms. For deleting the second or third floor I got nothing :(

Although you get nothing for deleting the floor, you do not lose the 500k town value you received building it.

Oh my. That is unfortunate. Thanks so much, Erin. I'll probably still end up doing it; but at least now I know a bit more about the true cost - especially for those of us who like to add second and third floors.

I do like that Teen Idol house, but then again, I also like to design my own places. The nice thing is that FM designed an excellent new house that is quite tempting. Maybe having only one, out on the island, will be enough for me. :P

PS I love your HFN design!
