I buldozed a 30x30 and am trying to put a 40x40 lot in it's place and there's plenty of room. But I'm getting a strange problem, the game will auto snap the lot to the road, and when that happenes the lot turns red and it tells me that I can't place it on the road.. So I try to move it back a little bit, but it doesn't let me because it's snapped to the road so I'd have to move it back a foot. Is there any way to stop it from snapping so I can just move it a little ways back so it's not "on the road"?
Even though the area around looks free it may be unrouted by the creator and you may have trees close to it. I guess you use the ingame world editor thing? What world are you trying to do this in and what lot?
It depends on the lot. You might be able to remove landscaping to make it fit or the lot itself might be at the base of a hill.
There was a question about this in the Help Section, and I answered it regarding a particular lot in Sunset Valley. Here is the linky!
