Is any of this necessary if your method of getting rid of unwanted sims is to drop satellites on their heads?
Dropping satellites on sims does nothing to eliminate them. They're still around, albeit dead. Perform the above procedure to completely remove them.

Beats me. All of the functions can probably be performed in newfangled SimPE, but I wouldn't really know how.

Back to Craptastic SimPE.
Open up the instance values of the sims you have chosen to delete ...
To clarify, as SimPE can't read Sim files properly since Pets came out: is this the 'Sim Description (SDSC)' tab?

Yar. If you are trying this under Pets, you'll need to read the SDSC either manually, by hex, like I do, or use That Accursed Thing in its most recent, possibly yet-unreleased incarnation.

Open up and reset the Sim Creation Index
Is it possible that this resource in some way contains also the index of neighborhood's number (N001, N002, etc.)? Following your tutorials - this one and that on terrain surgery - I noticed that the fifth pair of hex (after 34 6a 2a cc, which is the resource "name" in reverse order) is always be in all premade neighborhoods, and different in all those created later.

Now, if I merely create and later delete neighborhoods, deleting their folder also, when I create a new neighborhood it takes always the next serial number; but if I change that resource from <whatever> to "be", the next neighborhood I create, will take the next "free" number, not the higher one as usual.

Not sure if I explained clearly: I create N004, N005 and N006. Deleted N005 and N006. Creating another neighborhood, it will be N007. But, if I change that resource in my N004, the new neighborhood will be N005 instead.

Is all this possible or I've made my usual mess?

Unrelated. The neighborhood creation index for new neighborhoods always start at 1 everytime you restart your game. If you create 3 neighborhoods (004 005 006), then delete one (005), your next one is 007. If you restart your game, the next one you make will instead take up 005. No manipulation required.

Gosh! Of course, now it makes sense: I had to quit the game, to fire up SimPE, so that's why I've seen all that...
Thanks, good to know Smiley.

Maybe someone should make an assistant "deleter tool" that will handle the SimPE angle.

Good idea; maybe through a LUA script?

I'm assuming that you chose to retain SDSC from deletion because of the need to identify N00x_Character file from that. If my assumption is correct, then should be possible to pass that data somehow with some script, maybe dumped on a file, like error outputs?

No, I didn't CHOOSE to retain the SDSC from deletion, it simply cannot be deleted from inside the game. It has to be destroyed from inside SimPE.

Lua isn't a magic wand. Even if it had file editing capability (which it doesn't by default) you'd still need a full-fledged package parser outside the normal C++ routines.

Ok, wrong idea, then. Character deletion seems definitely a task much more complex than I might imagine.

Is it safe to delete the SCOR resources from the neighborhood package? These resources seem to be linked to sims that own a business by their instance id.
