Can't find the Community Board

★★ Apprentice

I started a new town in New Crest for my Medium Career Sim.   All the citizens are wearing paper bags over their heads.  One of my Sims needs to make a change on the voting after he collects the needed signatures but the Community Board doesn't show up even after the cheats are used.  I thought I read somewhere that buydebug no longer works?  So how do I get the paper bags of the citizens heads?  Does my Sim have to go to Eco town and use the only Community Board in the game?  And where does he get the needed signatures?  Eco town or his town, New Crest?  The mail box says voting is closed in New Crest.  Permanently I guess.   This is maddening.

@Gramcrackrs  You can try the workaround listed here:

I'd be happy to merge your post with that bug thread if you want, but since your question is more about gameplay, I figured you should decide.  Feel free to click Me Too or post there separately.

In addition to what @puzzlezaddict wrote any mailbox can be used. Only place where it is required is on a community lot. if you are building such a one. otherwise you would not be able to change between the different spaces.

Thank you jpkarlsen.  The mail box that came with the lot doesn't work so will try a 'newer' mail box.

The different mail boxes I've tried so far  not have the vote option.   The game no longer gives a voting is closed notice either.  Plan to look for that Community Board lot in the gallery.  Just have not had time.

@Gramcrackrs in addition to the remarks that are made in earlier posts. Voting for your own neighborhood through the mailbox can only be done in the weekends, from Friday evening 6 PM till Sunday 6 PM. And when you want to repeal, you can also use your own mailbox but then you will have to have the testingcheats enabled. Just shift click the mailbox and repeal the NAP you don't want. After repealing you can try to replace it with a NAP of your choice.

 

Have fun playing. 😉

Thanks!  I didn't remember the weekend restriction.  The mail box has the voting options so the repeal is on the  ballot.  Haven't been able to get back to the game yet to see if it worked.    I truly appreciate all the help.
