Theather Backdrops changing!

    Ok, I own a store, made a cc sign, with the store logo, and I have it up front, so it welcomes people when they come by!

    and often, and mostly newbies come there, and change the backdrop to a different image then what I want. and it annoys me!! [​IMG]

    So I think those backdrops should be set so ONLY owners and roomies can change them.. hehe [​IMG]

    Ever had that happen to any of you guys? What do you think?

    I know its a silly pet peeve but it bugs me too! I like to keep mine on the red drapes since I use it as a backdrop for my TV. Sigh silly sims always change it. I really hate the snow scene...brrrrr!

    Well yes they could do that like they do for the doors. But till then, if you wish, you could put some small fencing around it. Should keep them from changing it. I know it may seem out of place, but best you can do now too keep them from changing your backdrops.

    OMG ty, why dident I think of that?? I have already done it in a way in my skill lot, without even thinking bout it [​IMG]
    I put a pool around it, so the backdrop stands in the middle [​IMG]

    but ty, you opened my eyes to something I already have done lol

  5. I think this is a good idea because if that was happening to me, I would find it very annoying.

    Build a door piece around it and put 1 door and set to Owner and Roommates only.
  11. Poor free players. It's not like they have alot to do and now you are taking away one of their few pleasures. I understand if you want to keep your CC sign showing all the time but for pete's sake give them another backdrop to play with while they admire your CC. [​IMG]

    What if you made a backdrop with The words ...Change me I'm ugly on it ...do you think they would change it or leave it [​IMG] Truth is people like to do what they shouldn't so if you say go ahead ..they will leave it alone

    Here's an idea for the door. Make it a pay door. If they want to change it you might as well get something for it... lol

  15. *Makes note to go in as newb, next time she changes the backdrop* [​IMG]

    What I do at my store is put an oject by it so they can not change it. I have 2 backdrops for display. Not a problem any more.
