IMPORTANT NOTICE! This hack conflicts with Numenor's Custom objects placeable on OFB displays and shelves hack. Numenor was kind enough to include my hack into his version and provide additional download for merged hacks! If you want both features in your game, download his uupdated hack instead! Thanks, Numenor!

MAXIS PATCH FIXED THE PROBLEM! The latest patch for OFB and FFS fixes the problem of locked tiles. If you install the patch, you will no longer need this hack, simply delete the file from your Downloads folder.
_______________________________________________

This fix is for Open for Business only. It allows you to place any object within 2-tile wide area of a lot along the road. By default that area is locked and you get “out of bound” message if you try to place anything in there.

Place the file into your Downloads folder. Delete to uninstall.

The fix does not affect the objects already on a lot. You have to buy the object to place it in the locked area. No cheat code required for object placement.

If you are going to use this fix, you don't need to download my OFB mailbox fix, this fix will work for maibox and trashcan as well. But you still need a collection file to make mailbox buyable. Collection is available in the same thread

Just like any other hack, use at your own risk.

This download has custom installation instructions!

In addition to the normal installation instructions, this download also has a custom instruction, as follows:

Please make sure to read it before commenting that it doesn't work. :)
