Question from johnr283

How can I unlock a lot for editing?

I want to edit "The Great Pyrimid" but it tells me "you must use a cheat to lock/unlock this lot for editing.

What cheat do I need?

johnr283 provided additional details:

Thanks, I new about "Testingcheatsenabled true" but I didn't know about "buydebug".
"buydebug" gives you more objects to build with, but doesn't unlock the maxis lots. I want to edit the prebuilt lots, but is still tells me I "need a cheat"

johnr283 provided additional details:

Can someone explain step by step.
When I start the I select my active family.
Then I send them on vacation.
Once their on vacation I click edit town.
I open the cheat menu and put in the cheat "testingcheatsenabled true".
I shift click on the Pyrimid I wand to edit.
I get the message "you must use a cheat to lock/unlock this lot for editing"

I don't get it, what am I doing wrong.

stevesgamecube3 asked for clarification:

If you want to edit lot in vacation lot, you must type this cheat:
"testingcheatsenabled on" (without quotation marks)
After that, go to the lot you want to edit and do this :
Shift+Click on the lot and it should appears this option:
Teleport Me Here
Build On This Lot
Buy on This Lot
It is works and have fun edittig. Hope this anwers help you

First cheat: TestingCheatsEnabled true
Second Cheat: BuyDebug On
Third Cheat: EnableLotLocking true.

Okay, so I found that if you use EnableLotLocking True, after doing ctrl+shift+c , in edit town mode, you click on the lot you wanna edit. then, if you look at the options, at the far right, there is a small lock symbol. all you need to do, is click on that and every option is unlocked /)^3^(\

Enter enablelotlockingtrue and then click on the lot, and click on the little padlock icon. The build and buy option will become ungreyed. You may need to have testingcheatsenabled true on beforehand.
