To rent an apartment furnished:
* CTRL-SHIFT-C to bring up the cheat box.
* Enter the following cheat: boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true
* Walk your sim to the front door of the apartment that you want to rent. They need to be standing right in front of the door.
* Clear any actions from your sim's queue - including other sims trying to talk to them.
* SHIFT-click on the door of the apartment you wish to rent and choose "Rent Furnished."
* If the action falls out of your queue, your sim probably needs to be closer to the door.
* Once the apartment is rented, bring up the cheat box again.
* Enter: boolProp testingCheatsEnabled false to turn the cheat off again.

I can't figure it out, maybe this issue proceed from your pc? ChinaTown is full of objects and decorations, it's quite heavy, more than other lots of mine.
Crashes are strange for a cleaned lot, and usually they are due to hacks or corrupted objects that my lot doesn't contain..
sorry I don't know how I can help you more..


I know this is way late, but on the offchance that anyone else like me is still playing Sims 2 I thought I'd comment. I loved this lot, but like the above people I could not stop it from freezing after I rented an apartment. I'm persistent, however, (and the lot is perfect for some of my Sims) and finally after testing everything I could think of to test, I found out that it would work if I put it in the shopping district, but not in my main neighbourhood.

I'm guessing that because it is a big, detailed lot, that it didn't like the sheer number of customised lots I had in my main neighbourhood. So, if anyone else is having this problem and has a CC or house heavy neighbourhood, then try the lot in shopping or Downtown where there is (presumably) less stuff!

Well I was unable to find MissPiggi's recolour spiral staircase after reading why. I wondered if I could replace the spiral stairs with other recolours'.

Thank you for your advice. I have found that it works in the shopping district.
It was crashing in the Downtown area for me. Maybe because I have a lot of custom apartments in the Downtown area.
