I mistakenly put that public room marker outside of my house, and now everytime I go out to garden, it will ask me to call a babysitter (since i have a baby inside). But I cant remove that marker anymore.

Any help/suggestions?

Thank u in advance.

What is a public room marker? I'm assuming the problem is that you cannot see it to remove it? Can you see it in buydebug mode?

I have the same question as Alysha1988. I don't have a clue what that is ><

Public room markers are used to designate a given space in an apartment building as "accessible, but not part of your house", Such as the first-floor lobby and the elevator landings.

When editing apartments, I always have these cheats enabled:

testingcheatsenabled true
restrictbuildbuyinbuildings false
buydebug
moveobjects on

Not sure exactly which of those you need, but I've had no problem removing public room markers while they're in place.

PurplePrincess8, stay on the OP's topic. It's rude to just enter somewhere and ask something unrelated.

That's good to know if I ever happen to accidently buy one, thanks for the info, VexingQuery.

As soon as you place one of the appartment markers such as a hidden room marker on a lot, you will need to use the 'restrictbuildbuyinbuildings false' cheat everytime you want to build or buy on that lot. If all the markers are removed, by using this cheat, you won't need to use the cheat again to make changes

Okay, so you wanna know how to get rid of the Public Room Marker? First, go to an appartment or house, or where ever you put the public room markers. Then, do CTRL+SHIFT+C and type in "testingCheatEnabled" and press enter. After that, press CTRL+SHIFT+C again and type in "restrictbuildbuyinbuildings false" and then click on the Public Room Marker, and move or remove it.

Hope this helped!

Janell1516,

Is "restrictbuildbuyinbuildings off," not "restrictbuildbuyinbuildings false" actually. Minor mistake, but I don't think it will work otherwise. I should know, I've been using it to make my own apartments.

Check out Spring Valley. Don't forget the saved game file. Let me know what you think
