I downloaded this world and it was just as lovely in-game as it appeared in the pictures. However, most of the community lots are locked against editing. I get an error message that tells me I must enable cheats in order to unlock them. I googled the error message, but the instructions I found didn't work.
Did you intentionally lock most of the community lots against editing? If not, how can I edit these lots? I like to modify lots to suit my own playstyle, so I can't use this world even though it's soooo pretty.
And if anyone else is having the lot lock/unlocking problem then in edit town press ctrl shift c and type in this cheat: restrictbuildbuyinbuildings false
then press the unlock button next to the community lot you want to unlock, and off you go ^_^
oh, and if that doesn't work, try this--
Go into Edit Town
Open the cheat console (ctrl + shift + c)
Type TestingCheatsEnabled True
Open the cheat console again
Type EnableLotLocking True
Click on the lot you want to edit
There will be a padlock symbol next to the save, share, buy/build, etc. icons. Click it so that the lock appears open (unlocked)
Now the buy/build icon is no longer grayed out and you can click it to edit the lot.
I have the world downloaded now but how do I get the sims into the game? Not the one's I would create but those that come with this world... At the moment I have no sims in my town at all except for the one family I created. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You download the save file, then place it into your Saves directory (someone mentioned it on here before) It will create a new save, and your old family, if you have played them, this file will not move over to that one.
This world = WOW. I am so astounded at it. Being a HP tragic, it is AMAZING. I will definitely consider building here! It is just beautiful.( I actually think I am going to cry if I am playing Leaving Hogwarts while playing in this world! *DH2pun* )

I have been playing this world for a few week now and I totaly love it. The secrets I have found are awesome it is extreamly well made. I have done a lot of editing and building to enhance the world, and have several new sims from the books/fimls added. You can see the sims I have made on my page if you wanted to download them.
I had to manualy add the rabbit hole rugs, maybe because i installed the world befor I installed the rugs....
A huge thanks to the creator - vssdgames thumbs up
