There doesn't seem to be a guide to explain how it all works.  Trial and error is frustrating and time consuming.  I'm sure I will get it all eventually but I do wish there was more info.

I'm a bit confused. I thought this new world had empty lots? Maybe I'm wrong and misheard or read information that came out, which is most likely the case these days. Head Desk

Are you ready for #TS4EcoLifestyle  Evergr10

And I've got a girl who is living in Evergreen Harbor, and her neighborhood is a disaster, garbage everywhere, how in the world does one even begin to start cleaning a neighborhood up? I get the whole point thing in order to vote and stuff, figured that out right away. And why do they (NPC's and my sim) randomly start brawls??? I mean what the heck!

Hi MJ Smile

I have heard very little about this expansion so I am not sure about empty lots at all.

There is an option on the voting board that had something about fighting in it, so I guess that is what it is.

I am not sure if you can vote in all the areas or just the one you live in either.


Just found this:

@Buttonsginger, I had discovered that the random brawling did come from a vote on the community lot in Grims Quarry. I had my sim gather votes to appeal it. Laughing and I was able to wrangle up enough votes to change the whole build into a Makers Space.

I had an inspector for N.A.P.S show up at my apartment and I'm being fined because it isn't compliance with the Neighborhood Action which he said was green gardening. and the fines will stay until the issue had been resolved. But I can't add anything to the outside of that apartment building I keep getting pop ups stating that I can't make changes outside an owned area. I put in a small planter that came with Eco Living in the apartment, but that's about all I can do at this point. Not sure if it's a glitch or we just aren't allowed to make changes to those lots.

I also discovered I was mistaken in the lots in Evergreen Harbor. There are no empty ones.

Again I have seemed to have failed at doing the green garden neighborhood action and now the upcycling too! Mad

@MJ  I had the same inspector. I passed but am living on a lot not an apartment.

Every single insect farm I have had the bugs die after a few days.

Lot traits.


Maybe they have to be on a lot in the industrial zone?? I don't know, doesn't seem right.

I've nurtured and feed them both food and compost. I am stumped.

So I made a different family, put them in an actual home and this time I had Knox show up to discuss N.A.P and how my sims can make a difference in their neighborhood. He never showed up with the other sim I made and put in one of the apartments.

@Mamajanaynay I am glad he finally showed up thumbs up

So I patched with the latest patch this afternoon. Bug farms still are not working. Then I get a notification that my sim has successfully swiped something . She was at home, cooking dinner. Now her TV is missing and it is not in her family inventory. Suspect

Finally got rid of all the "crap" piled around town. Cool

Went into an old save with a really good garden. Plants were all there that were in season when I started the save. Placed wind turbine, water catcher and roof solar panels. Not sure if plants disappeared just after coming out of build/buy or when at sunrise.

I think I made a mistake playing two Sims when I didn't know what I was doing. It's getting better but I don't like the stealing of things. Odd that I found the stolen things in the family inventory but was at a point not letting anyone in the house. Didn't like the garbage all over the town but have been trying to get a petition signed. Most of the Sims she asked to sign the petition were from another neighborhood! Also think I made a mistake turning the community lot into a selling place since they lost the dumpster. The trash bins around the neighborhood are always empty.
They've gotten good reports from the Eco police. They have a recycler in the backyard and garden but we had to fence it off and lock the gate to keep people out. The stealing is annoying but pretty sure I found what was stolen, which was a lot of stuff ( even a kitchen counter, hall table, and large floor rug )in their family inventory. I have them go outside and chat instead of letting people in.
There isn't any Spring or Fall season but I don't know if that's also happening in the other worlds.
It was frustrating me to a point where I had to get away from the game for awhile.
One gig the writer took she had to have confident mood to write the book. Had no idea how to have that happen. Mad
Still a lot of things to try. Smile

Oh my goodness @Gramcrackers! I haven't had anyone steal anything of mine but the rough housing is getting on my nerves. That constant brawling is a pain. I was able to get my sim to gather all the necessary votes to appeal it and won that time, but it got voted in again! Surprised Head Desk Out Cold  This time she hasn't been able to get all the votes needed to vote it out.

I've been playing my first sim that I made to try out this pack and she is at level 6(?) in the Civil career and WOOO, the neighborhood is finally for the most part clean!!! WaveCheer

I also had her move in with another female sim who is her best friend. That way she can have a better garden.

Nice ( and clean ) looking neighborhood, Mamajanaynay. So many things are going wrong that I haven't gotten back to the N.A.P. stuff.
Some of the problems that have popped up: Sim wants food. Get the Sim food but the Sim doesn't eat it and still wants food. Sim fabricated a bed but the bed went into family inventory where player doesn't have any option to get it into creator Sim's inventory nor send to client for approval. ( So far that hasn't happened again so might have been something I did.) Sim's are always taking out the garbage ( doesn't have the neat trait )to the outdoor trashcan where the Sim can't go through the trash for bits and pieces. For awhile the locked front door didn't stay set as household only.
Does anyone know what's with the uncomfortable rating on the showertubs? I want to know why showers are uncomfortable.
Lastly, Sim adopted a child, went to get the child and bring them home. Child went into the house but the Sim couldn't get through front or back door, locked or unlocked. Had to replace both doors for her to enter her house. Crazy stuff.
Maybe the last update to the game fixed things. But there is still no Spring ( snow doesn't melt nor do leaves fall from trees in the Fall.) Say's it's spring on the calendar. Makes it not so much fun to play when there are so many glitches. I feel like I'm fighting with my Sims when they throw off my commands and do something else or nothing.
