View Full Version : Scrap piles?
22nd Jun 2010, 03:15 AM
Maybe I'm missing something obvious...
If you're building a community lot, how do you put in scrap piles? I can't find them anywhere in my game. I want to build a junkyard that's on a different sized lot so remodeling one of the existing ones won't work.

I've seen a scrap spawner in the BuyDebug folder. Maybe that's what creates the scrap-piles; not sure, though.
To access BuyDebug, enter the cheat "testingcheatsenabled true", followed by "buydebug on". Now when you go into buy mode (sort by function) there should be an icon marked by a "?". In there you should find the scrap spawner object - somewhere :).

There are junk spawners, which spawn the salvageable objects you find in junkyards, and also trash piles, both in BuyDebug. The spawners are with the rock and metal spawners. The junk piles are in the last tab... forget what it's called... and they're kind of hard to find, because they're mixed up with everything else in there, instead of all together.
I just made a junkyard in SV, with a new lot sqeezed in between the Criminal Warehouse and Mosquito Cove, and had a hard time finding the junk piles too :) Junkyard's fun to build, though. Don't forget the wrecked car decor object, and some cockroaches from the Bugs spawner tab!

How often do scrap piles reset? Mine have been greyed out for a couple of sim days.

why did I never think of that... the midnight runs to the junkyard when I could have a pile right at home. Thanks for posting that lol
