Does moving to a new town with graves in your family inventory lose the ghosts?
So basically, I'm trying to create a ghost town with all the ghosts from the towns I own (yes-- I've been traveling from Sunset Valley to Twinbrook to Moonlight Falls and everywhere picking up gravestones). I sent my sim around every town and by using cheats or purchasing properties, I added gravestones to the family inventory (I checked and made sure none were placeholder "Remains" graves). I then moved to an empty CC town and placed every grave from my family inventory on my property, but I've waited about three in-game nights and no ghosts appeared. Granted, I could wait later, but in past games after moving a gravestone within a town a ghost appeared within two nights. I'm thinking my next attempt, I'll do the extra work to get the graves in my sim's personal inventory, but I couldn't find much internet info on transporting graves in the Sims 3 (I found plenty on TS2 though). Does anybody know for sure if putting graves in the family inventory and moving to a new town loses the ghosts attached to them?
No, they shouldn't lose them. My simmies have lived in countless towns and they always take the family gravestones with them. Sometimes it takes a few or more nights before the ghosts rise but they always do. That includes all the ghosts of family pets - dogs, cats and horses - too. I don't know if it makes any difference but I always place the stones into the simmies personal inventory, not in the family inventory.
