People are generally thinking differently every time and they have a lot of weird combinations they would want to try and combine and this can be made possible with the help of MOO. But mind that using MOO comes with some warnings to which one must keep in mind if you don’t want to cause routing problems or graphical glitches. 

Some common Points to Remember

MOO is best used on decorative and non-functioning objects. Wall arts, sculptures, landscaping, and the like are all ideal candidates for some creative moving of objects. Things that your sims use a lot, such as beds, toilets, or chairs have more chance of cousin problem if the code and rules behind it are not obeyed properly. 

There are some objects like the windows and doors which do not respond well to MOO.So just be careful with these as well. You can overlap windows to create a new look. You just have to make sure that you keep a one-panel window on one panel only and keep the two windows on the same level. You may find that there are some slight graphical glitches in the area where two or more items are overlapped. This happens because the two textures fight each other. 

Having the freedom to place things wherever you like also means that there will be a few issues along with it like they might appear where you don’t want them to appear. When you use MOO to place an object, then it is recommended to do a quick 360 all the way around to check for these problems and solve them immediately.

Once you are done using the cheat, it is safe to go back and then turn it off. Open the cheat box and enter bb.moveobjects off. Then you will receive a message saying that you the cheat has been turned off. Once MOO is active, you will find that the footprints for items are still visible, but they do not prevent you from placing an item where you wish to.
