Building a hotel without Bon VoyageEdit

The following text has been removed from the article:

==Creating a Hotel Without ''Bon Voyage'' or in a Normal Neighborhood==

It is possible, by using the changeLotZoning cheat, to create a hotel in a normal neighborhood. This hotel will have beds and reservable rooms (the latter only with ''University''), but will not have a 'Check In', as sims can just walk in to their room (but not another reserved room), or a room service. Plus, this hotel may have a mailbox/ mailroom that looks like a house one if you wish. Create a residential lot, and build as much of the hotel as you can, including beds, phones in rooms, rservable doors (if you have ''University'' Installed) etc. Then, using the cheat, change the lot to a community lot and build any community lot items - such as a shop, a reastrant, etc. If you have the 'Move Objects' cheat enabled, then you can move the mailbox to a 'Mail Room' inside, and delete the residential-style bin. The latter cheat will also allow you to have a drive or car park, etc., and the 'Set Highest Level' cheat can allow you to build a skyscraper hotel.

This is not a hotel. Sims may not be able to sleep in the beds as the lot is zoned as a community lot, not a residential lot. There will be a large amount of glitches on the lot, as lots are not known to work properly if their zoning is changed from residential to community lot, and vice versa (the rules for things like being able to save your game or for Sims to sleep on the lot depends on whether the lot is a residential or community lot. The "changeLotZoning" cheat does not always change the coding for this. As far as I know hotels cannot be built outside of vacation hoods. Thus I cannot condone this method. --I am k6ka Talk to me!

I agree with your reasoning and support keeping this text out of the article. -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 16:45, October 16, 2014 (UTC)
