    I would suggest being careful where you place your item as you cannot move it once placed - or at least I couldn't. I got the game message that I could not move community items. lol Fortunately, the trashcan came down in an okay place - not where I'd have planted it but it's okay and it functions.

    The five-second rule does not apply when you have a two-second dog.

    If you dont like a place you put an item you just click (in the item you copy,or add) and select set as head ! But if you put an item in a place and then travel (to a neighbor,to a neighborhood,to a world )this item will be there forever!

    For people having issues with items that resize when you put on the head, you can try this mod: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=536711

    You have the option to resize the object when you put it on the head. I haven't tested but I'm quite sure it can fix the issue.

    Thank you! Im going to try it later! Have you tried it? :)

    Great now I'm gonna have a Sim use a public restroom as his head so I can place it elsewhere! :) Not gonna be weird at all running by Sims with a giant restroom on my head :p Genius though.
    Live your life to the fullest, don't wait for a miracle to happen, be the miracle to make things happen.
    Sometimes your creativity is limited where you use it most, but you can use those limitations to inspire new forms of creativity you may never have thought of beforehand.

    there's the bb.enablefreebuild cheat which allows you to go into build/buy mode on community lots

    I tried that when I first found out about the enablefreebuild cheat it didn't work for me

    Added trash cans all over Dumpcrest. Helps a lot.

    Although when I tried to place other objects, I realized they shrank in size. Such as placing the playground boat out... shrank big time lol

    Does this trick work for cleaning up plates etc stuck in public areas? (E.G. set as head, remove on lot, wash up/throw away plate)

    I'm speechless. This is genius! I can't wait to play with this. I'm definitely taking an easel...so many pretty places I wanna paint.
    I hope we get a portable easel in get together.... I am thinking we might as we are getting a portable bar.

    How come I never saw this thread?
    OP, wonderful job with the tutorial. Thank you

    Have you tried this method with graves? Will I be able to create a mini graveyard using your method in the public areas?
    Everything I post is an opinion here and I think every post of others is as well.

    Thank you! I havent tried this method with graves, but I think that it will work. Use the bb.showhiddenobjects and search debug in build mode to find graves so you dont have to kill sims lol
