House Flipper 2 How remove roofs, stairs, and others for Story Mode

How remove roofs, stairs, and others for Story Mode

First you need to access your profile on C:\users\usarname\documents\HouseFlipper2\Profiles , then choose the profile you are using, go now to Folder Houses , inside you will have “D1-0 Starter house@numbers.house”, copy this file go back one step and past the file into Sandbox Houses.

Now log into the game, choose sandbox mode, you will see the “D1-0 Starter house@numbers.house” available there, so hit play and edit it , once inside remove roofs, stairs and other elements that are not possible to delete in story mode, while in sandbox you can add also sandbox items, then save.

Close game and go again to C:\users\usarname\documents\HouseFlipper2\Profiles, this time will do the inverse, open Sandbox Houses folder, copy the file you edit “D1-0 Starter house@numbers.house”, go back one step and open Houses folder, paste the file “D1-0 Starter house@numbers.house” and let it be overwrited there.

Log into game again and hit continue in story mode, voila, what you remove on sandbox can now be placed as you wish in story mode, along the sandbox items you place in the house when edit it. So nothing different that developers not have already made in several houses in story mode, if you delete sandbox only items they can’t be replaced in story mode, but they can be replaced in sandbox when you wish by doing the same steps again. At least houses will have much better look in story mode for a while, because probably my knowledge tells me they will lock it sooner or later

You can add also sandbox items to story mode houses this way while you are in sandbox, remember to save before leave sandbox mode.

Note that if you sell any house modified by this method, when buy it again it will return to it’s original state, except for the Parent’s House, so always keep original files backup for any time you decide to turn it in original state

So use it at your own risk, like you do with mods.io or any steam workshop available, after all they all modify files.

If you don’t know how to performe this steps or how to edit the house in sandbox mode then better not mess with it, make always a manual backup of your saves, also i don’t assume any responsability for you don’t know what you doing there.

This guide was tested for several hours and with all houses and works 100% if you know what you doing.

Too who says the game could crash, the truth is the game is crashing itself from nowhere even without using this guide and so far i don’t have any crashes with this method, so try it yourselfs, just saying.

There’s also the possibility to place your own houses in story mode, but that is for more advanced players, i already have tested it and it works 100%, so this guide opens a door to something much better then some story mode ugly houses, maybe one day i can make a guide about it too, but now not in the mood to let everyone know the same as me here, so …

Possible guide in the future to how place your house created in sandbox into story mode

I already have tested it with 100% of success replacing story mode houses into the ones created in sandbox, but not in the mood to share much more with HF2 community due to last happenings in discord, pity this game has people without any knowledge about what they say , then shut others to share the options available in game, seems people don’t have free of speech without someone point issues to something they don’t know what they are talking about, who suffer is community for others behaves , they will keep a limited game for an undefined time. Anyway here’s some pictures of a sandbox house started from scratch in a lot and imported to story mode.

If my mood changes in the future maybe i share a guide how to do this with HF2 communitty , or maybe not.
