Generally speaking, you need a Sim's 3D data for it to work. If you delete
an urn/tombstone, it will delete that 3D data for some reason.

Also, I think it's just glitchy sometimes.

I believe the most likely reason is you've soldl their grave or urn.

Also, you cannot ressurrect if you already have 8 ppl in a house, or
if your sims did not know them.

GP, I posted about this problem some time ago. I have been able to resurrect
other sims, but the first one to die after installing University could not
be resurrected, even though he was the favorite sibling of the one who tried
to bring him back.

His gravestone is still in the front yard and he haunts the house pretty
regularly. His brother had the want to resurrect him for a long time, then
just gave up on it.

Hmm... when you install Uni it says something about saved file format
being different. Maybe that's why?

I don't have SimPE and am wary of using hacks, so I don't. I'm just trying
to decide if I want to keep the gravestone.

Doesnt seem to be doing much good. And SimPE isn't really a hack per
say... you can change his "dead" flag with it.

Keep it - with the new EP we're going to be able to have community
cemeteries and graveyards.

We'll be able to move tombstones from home lots to community lots?

Well the grave is still there, it was a family member, and there are 2 in
the house. So I'm baffled. I have Sim PE but frankly I don't know how to go
beyond recolors on it, I find it very user-unfriendly. Anyone guide this
doofus through removing a dead flag with it?

You may be right about the glitchy issue.

I wonder if that means anybody can resurrect anybody now?

I've got nothing to base this one, but I believe the same rule
applies. You have to have known them in life... on the other hand,
that would be odd, wouldnt it? What if those people die... or lose
their relationships? If anyone can ressurect anyone it'll make a
helluva mess on the ressurectonomitron screen.
