An empty residential lot suddenly crashes when I want to visit it (corrupted after using LotAdjuster + HoodReplacer?). Hoodchecker didn't find any corruption there.
So how can I demolish that lot safely (provided it doesn't trigger crashing)?

You can just demolish it while in the build mode-from the neighborhood screen. it should not crash. The bulldozer is part of the build section.

Is there any way to give an existing Sim recessive genetics without using SimPE?? Mine keeps crashing every time I try to open any of my hoods in the neighborhood browser, which is obviously a weird problem that I know I need to fix at some point but so far none of my troubleshooting has worked -- since I hardly ever actually have to use SimPE for much, it'd be nice to have an ingame workaround for this ONE thing I need to do so I can get back to playing in the meantime, and figure out my SimPE issues later when I feel more up to it.

@FranH: thanks, this worked. Any tips how I can prevent lot corruption in the future? I guess something went wrong with this lot between Lotadjuster and HoodReplace (replaced the roads and terrain).

I had to google the question in order to find the answer, which was sitting in this forum all along, in a discussion:

Is there a list of non-intuitive things NOT to do in a Sims game?

I'm sorry, this is ridiculous. Why do regular, non-magical children urinate with music of new age crystals?

Little boys do the musical xylophone pee and there is a mod to stop that. Maybe by Squinge or pescado.

How come sometimes bodyshop takes its sweet time to even start up to where I need to end it in task manager and start again, and then other times it pops up immediately all ready to go? It's like it only works when it feels like it

Yes, they do that. But why such a random thing? Perhaps it is a cultural reference to something previously seen on television?

It's just a joke because some people call urination tinkling. Sims 1 was full of weird and random moments, and Sims 2 included a few too.

I think it is meant to be funny and random and maybe more of an American thing since their toilets are full of water. A lot more water than ours. (I'm Australian) An American loo would freak me out, it would look clogged.

I had to add the loo picture.

Current US toilets do not have that much water in the bowl, that image is old. Like 30 years outdated. In the early 90's the standard were changed so that the amount of water could be no more than ~1.5 gallons. Sure, houses could still have toilets that use between 3-5 gallons, since the longevity of a toilet is pretty long.

Does anyone know what the purpose is of the checkbox "Versioned Backups" in HoodChecker?

Instead of copying the Nxxx_Neighborhood.package to Nxxx_Neighborhood.bak and overwriting any existing files with the same name, it renames it to Nxxx_Neighborhood_n.bak, where n is the current backup number (version) (1, 2, ...).

Though I don't use any backup features from Mootilda's programs. Instead, I back up the entire Nxxx folder.

I think Mootilda originally had a reason for it, but I never saw a difference whither I clicked it or not.

Namaste... or "go"

Please keep it checked! It makes back-ups of your lot, so if you mess up - you don't have to rebuild from scratch. It is a very helpful part of the program.

I thought it was just checking Sims. Is it making back-ups of both empty lots and occupied lots? Where does it save them to?

Gah! That's what I get for answering in a hurry... Not "lots", Hoods. It makes back ups of your hoods.
(Most of Moo's programs have that helpful little fail-safe feature - I use the grid and lot adjusters all the time, which is why I typed the wrong word earlier.) Sorry
IIRC it saves them in the specific hood's folder - with a .bak file extension.
