Cloning Neighborhoods

Cloning Neighborhoods

Postby Chase » May 2nd, 2020, 5:35 pm

Hello everyone! Does anyone have experience with cloning neighborhoods? I figured it might be as simple as copying and pasting my neighborhood (a custom 'hood) and renaming it to another number, but I wasn't sure if that could cause corruption or something like that. I'm just super scared of corrupting my BaCC neighborhood. :P Anyone know if the way I mentioned works and if it's safe?

Hi Chase! Not sure if this is still relevant for you, but it just caught my eye and got me intrigued. :hmm: I don't have any personal experience in trying to clone 'hoods, nor am I an expert of any kind, but the question stirred something in my memory. I had a vague recollection that sometimes when sharing 'hoods, creators give instructions on what to do if you want the 'hood but already have one by that number. I did a bit of digging and found this post by Phaenoh on MTS. In the install instructions, it says basically to rename the folder and everything inside it:

If you already happen to have a N463, then I recommend the Bulk Rename Utility to change all the files from N463 to an available N###.


So if renaming everything works for moving a 'hood from one number to another, it sounds like you could use it to make an identical copy of an existing 'hood too? But again, I'm no expert in the matter. Better at least take a backup of everything before trying. :)
