Have you ever been frustrated by the difficulty of rotating a driveway on a lot?
Although there has been a process for doing this, any particular lot would only allow driveways to be rotated in one direction. If you weren't building the lot from scratch, there was a good likelihood that the driveway wouldn't rotate in the direction that you wanted. In addition, it was impossible to create circular driveways which allowed travel in multiple directions.
This mod removes that restriction. Now, both Driveway Entrances (the part usually attached to the road) and Driveway Extensions can be rotated using the standard in-game object rotation technique (using the "<" and ">" keys).
The file contains 3 different folders, each with 2 different mods. Install the mods from the NL folder if your latest EP or SP is Nightlife. Install the mods from the AL folder if your latest EP or SP is Apartment Life or later. All other game configurations will use the mods in the OFB-FT folder.
Here is a list of the game engines used by the various SPs:
Each folder contains 2 mods which can be used with that game configuration. One mod allows the Driveway Entrance to be rotated, and removes the restriction that it must be exactly 10 tiles from the edge of the lot. The Nightlife version of this mod also removes the restriction that driveways can only be placed on locked tiles. The other mod allows the Driveway Extension to be rotated. I separated these two functions because it makes less sense to rotate the Driveway Entrance; its interaction with the road means that it is less useful and more annoying to rotate this piece, and that the animations are more bizarre. You can install both the Entrance and Extension, or just one or the other.
Install a maximum of one Entrance mod and one Extension mod, based on the game engine that you are running.
This mod requires driveways and is compatible with EPs from Nightlife to Mansion and Garden. I believe that this mod will also be compatible with all versions of the Store Edition, but that has not been tested. Because driveways come with both Nightlife and Apartment Life, there is no requirement for any specific EP.
I am not aware of any conflicts with this mod. If you find any, please report them to me so that I can start a list.
This mod changes the placement parameters for driveway pieces in the BHAVs "Function - Init - Entrance" and "Function - Init - Extension":
Type: 0x42484156 (BHAV)
Instances: 0x0000200F and 0x00002010
