View Full Version : "Can't intersect other objects" Error When Putting Up Fence
9th Aug 2009, 06:40 AM
I moved the driveway 2 tiles to the right, now I can't put up a fence where the driveway used to be. I'm getting the error "Can't intersect other objects" when clearly there's nothing there. I tried removing the driveway altogether but I still get the error.

Try using the move objects cheat to see if there is something there you can't see yet [like roaches, butterflies, etc]
If not, try saving and reentering
if that doesn't work, post a reply again and i'll try digging a little deeper :)

I've saved and re-entered, didn't work. Actually the error "Can't intersect" shows when move objects cheat is on. When it's not, the error is "Location out of bounds".

Are you sure there are no sims on the lot?

Have you adjusted this lot with lot adjuster? Is that location in the middle of the lot? Or is that the edge? Have you deleted any of the sidewalk on either side of the street?

There are Sims on the lot.
I did use the Lot Adjuster to expand the right side of the lot. Could that be causing the problem? The location is on the front edge of the lot. I did not delete any sidewalk. The fence has always been where it used to, right next to the sidewalk, except when I moved the driveway, I couldn't close off the fence.

With sims on the lot, it's very well possible that there are invisible objects stuck somewhere. Do you have the StuckObjectRemover?

I did use the StuckObjectRemover. It did not burninate anything.

Did you try just letting the game run for a minute? Sometimes the sims who are living on the lot have other plans in mind for a tile or two. StuckObjectRemover won't remove those. From what I can see of the location, they might be after the newspaper. Or, possibly (depending on what time it is), that's the spot assigned to newspaper delivery.

I've been playing the game for a while with those 2 walls missing and it's driving me crazy.

Maybe, since you did adjust the lot, try picking up and placeing your lot back down in the neighborhood.

I know that this is really late, but I believe that I know what caused this problem and how you can fix it.
I just found a bug in the LotAdjuster which has been there from the beginning (since andi wrote the original LotExpander) which can cause this problem. The LotAdjuster has been fixed and will no longer cause this problem, but it won't fix an existing problem lot.
However, I believe that a lot with this problem can be fixed by deleting the Vertex Layer (VERT) record from the lot package using SimPE. As far as I can tell, the record isn't necessary and it will regenerate as objects are added or moved in-game. You should backup your game before making this change, and test your lot well afterward, to ensure that there are no ill-effects.
