How to receive a name for island if it is occupied?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I want to buy sim, but at a choice of a name for sim - I receive the message that such name is already occupied. But actually the island with this name - has ceased to exist for a long time. How to be in this situation?

It's my understanding (although not stated explicitly in the guidelines) that if a name is in use today, or was ever in use, you can't use it.  That's consistent with LL's policy on other things, for example group names and usernames.  It also probably helps LL keep the books straight in case there are ever accounting questions, or if there's a legal question involving the previous sim.  (You'd hate to become collateral damage in someome else's lawsuit, I'm sure.)

That doesnt make much sense.

If you do a map search and dont see a sim with the name you want you should be safe in ordering a sim with that name.

Contact the Live Support people, they may be able to help you more.

Good luck!
