Thankya for sharing this, J.M. (and thanks to Gwill, I guess, for asking for it)

Will this affect doors that stick due to being placed too close to other doors or archways via moveobjects as well, or is that a separate result of going against the intended way of things?

What is the difference between this fix and the "Blocked Doors can close" fix at the Fairy Forest website, here: https://www.feenwald.com/en/specials/closedoors.php

This doesn't prevent legitimately blocked doors from being blocked, it only stops doors from being blocked by things that aren't physical objects or shouldn't otherwise block the door according to their object flag, like staircase endtiles, ceiling lights, etc.

That explains your fix, but doesn't add anything to the info you've already provided and doesn't tell me whether there is a difference between your fix and the one at Fairy Forest, which I was hoping you would be able to elaborate on.
I did email the folks over at that site, but they haven't responded.
Yes, I know I could do some testing myself, but since your fix has been working fine for me for a number of years I guess I'll just keep using it - thanks.
(As a "Lot Builder", I strive to use mods that most people have in their game, thus my interest in finding out which of these two fixes might be better, or whether there is even a difference between them.)

Well, I can only tell you what mine does. I can't speak for what some other mod that I've never previously heard and do not use does. All I can say is that I recommend that you accept no Kewian-based substitutes.

Of course, understood.
I was under the impression that you modders could maybe compare two mods by looking at their attributes in SimPE, or whatever you use to modify things, but never mind.

You could, but since I've never heard of this mod and don't have or use it, I wouldn't know anything about it. I really don't spend my time looking through random people's websites and downloading all of their random stuff just to look at it.
