* BilingualBonus: Probably not intentional but the vampires say "bluh" which sounds like "blø", which means "Bleed" in Norwegian, which does fit something a vampire would want to say.

This means using the in-game "delete" option in the Families bin will cause corruption. Any kind of deletion including deleting from family bin, selling urns/grave, deleting urns/graves will cause corruption.

** Another in-game feature, storing occupied lots in the lots bin, can corrupt a neighborhood.neighborhood for the same reason due to referencing missing Sims, and so does putting in occupied lots, which is why no mod sites attempt to do that (though oddly the premade occupied lot that come with Pets are safe).



** Two pre-made families, the Ottomas family and the Crittur family, have pregnant members who may corrupt the neighborhood when they give birth. Luckily, the Ottomas family was patched, but the Crittur family never was.

* TheMissingNo: Inverted in some way; if a sim is deleted, sims created or born after the deletion will get the wants/fears file of that sim, and other new sims will get the wants/fears files of the previous sims. This leads to neighbourhood corruption, so many sims 2 forums and strategy sites have warnings about deleting sims unless a special hacked object made by Pescado of "More Awesome Than You" is used. Even then, SimPE is required and the process can be a bit complex.
