Default Moving a streetlight?
So I am working on building a pretty cute house in Riverview, I picked the lot cause it had a pretty view over the river...used to be trailer like homes on these lots, which I felt was a waste for a pretty view and edited the lot size as well as bulldoze the pre-made homes.

However there is a streetlight set right in the middle of my property, like, literally smack dab in front of the front door, and its really bothering me. I tried moveobjects cheat and that didnt work.

Is there anyway to delete or move a streetlight?

Sorry if this is a repeat thread, I searched before I made it but came up with nothing....

No.

I do not know why but this message must be at least 7 characters even though the answer is simply "No."

Reaverbot is incorrect- you should be able to move or delete anything in the neighbourhood using the World Editor button:

Really? I could have sworn I deleted some streetlights from Riverview like that. In that case then, the only way to delete them would be to turn on the testing cheats (testingcheatsenabled true) and shift click the object. You'll see 'object...', click that and you'll see 'Delete it'. Click that and it will be gone.

I had the same problem in Twinbrook, but even in World Editor mode, I couldn't get rid of the street light.

Shorty, try what I mention in my above post with the testing cheats.

I was having the same problem but I just figured out how to get rid of the streetlights. I know it's not moving but I hope this helps.

You gotta have the testingcheatsenabled true cheat on.
Play a family near the lights. Once your in there, click on the light and then go to object > delete.

Just tried this and it worked! the light from the streetlight was still there but no lamp post. You'll have to exit to main menu then back to where you were. Since the lamps were gone, I was able to set my lot close to the street like I wanted. I did this in Bridgeport (I think Bridgeport...) right across from the Shallows where there were previously 3 streetlamps.

I have been having the problem where I cannot place lots due the streetlights as well. I deleted the streetlight and could place a lot, but the lot was too small for the lot I wanted to place. After removing the lot and trying to add another it would not let me place the lot in the spot. It keeps saying "can't place lot on lot" but there is nothing there. I've checked a millions times to see if there was another streetlight or signs but there is nothing there. I have re-started the game numerous times but it stills says "can't place lot on lot." Please help!!

As Simsample already said make sure you have the TCE cheat enabled - testingcheatsenabled true
then use the - moveobjects on
then you can manipulate the lots much easier.

This happened to me in Lucky Palms. Make sure you delete the existing lot.. sometimes there are 2 lots on top of each other that you aren't aware of. Bulldoze it twice then try placing a lot. Again make sure you have TCE on and moveobjects on.

Sometimes it helps when I exit that world to the main menu and then go back again whenever a lot wont stick for some reason.

This thread http://www.den.simlogical.com/denfo...hp?topic=1235.0 may help with streetlamp management *in some situations*

I am in Lucky Palms, and there is a streetlight right across from the casino lot. The space is perfect for a community lot I want to place there. I have TCE on, MO on, and I cannot select the streetlight to move or delete it. Any other suggestions? The link for the simlogical post is no longer working. TIA!

You have to go into World Editor, which is under the Edit Town screen.
