Why i made this tutorial

Where i live, many homes have actually basements and also the bulk have 3 floors over ground together well. Ns tried to have actually basement homes in Sims 1, learned from few of the giants of our community, particularly Guabaman and also Bluesage, yet never acquired their houses, or those ns made, working quite as they should. Visitors would shot to leaving the lot native what lock (the game!) thought was the floor floor and got horribly confused. I discovered I had to evict the Newbies" visitors through move_objects on, which ns hated.
