Door locking in TS2[edit source]

Thought I might jot some notes down about locking doors in TS2 here:

  • On all doors, Sims can lock the door to "Allow Household Only", "Allow Me Only", and "Lock for all Sims".
  • In Open for Business, if the lot is a business lot, Sims can lock a door to only allow household members and employees.
  • In Bon Voyage, Sims can lock a door at a hotel to "Allow Party Only". They can also set it to "Do Not Disturb" to keep housekeeping out.
  • In Apartment Life, Sims can lock a door to disallow lot visitors.

Probably missed some, but a few notes nonetheless. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 21:31, August 3, 2016 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure door locking wasn't introduced in the Sims 2 base game, because if it had been, I would have discovered it and used it. I'm pretty sure I can remember checking in the base game to see if locking doors was an available option, but it wasn't. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 21:42, August 3, 2016 (UTC)
The article already mentions it; however, door locking was, from the looks of it, carried forward in later expansion packs, so you do not necessarily need Open For Business to lock doors. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 00:24, August 4, 2016 (UTC)

Does "Allow Household Only" has the exception of all or few NPCs? And I would presume locking for all locks npcs too, but you can't be sure for certain ;) DrakonoSkerdikas (talk) 13:40, May 26, 2019 (UTC)

Split Door Room Door[edit source]

The Door Room Door contains too many information. Some information is not directly related: How Dormies work, the items. The mechanics are too complicated and different from other doors, and therefore, not suitable for the page. It also is duplicated with the one on the Dorm page. Suggest to either create a new page, or use the duplicate on the Dorm page and then use the {{main}} template.

The Myne Door was originally in the dormitory article, but DrakonoSkerdikas insisted that it made the dorm article too cluttered and pushed to merge it into this one. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:16, December 30, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, but now I would suggest creating it's own article for the Myne Door, since in there or here it's too verbose. I would recommend summarizing in concise text here and maybe at the Dormitory as well, while moving the verbose text to devoted article called "Myne Door".DrakonoSkerdikas (talk) 13:28, December 30, 2018 (UTC)
Myne Door should be moved back to Dormitory. There's no good reason why it was removed from there in the first place. Wasn't even a problem to begin with. (talk) 16:58, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
In the interim I've removed a copious amount of duplicated content from the article (seems like a lousy cut-and-paste job) that didn't relate very well to the door itself. I don't think it is strictly necessary to create a whole new article for the Myne Door, but features relating to the door itself can stay on the Door article, while more of the mechanics surrounding dorm rooms can stay in the Dormitory article (since there's no good reason I can think of for depriving both articles of relevant information). —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 17:59, February 1, 2019 (UTC)

What to do with this article?[edit source]

Regarding formatting and quality? Apart from grammar, which of course needs fixing who's qualified for the job. DrakonoSkerdikas (talk) 15:44, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
