@GalacticGal my Sim's Stans never leave presents. I had to put up a fence to keep them out of my pool!
But back on topic; I hope they work a search function into the game soon. Maybe they didn't realize just how popular off-the-grid would be, or they rolled it out without testing it. It has so much potential!
Multiple updates for the Off the Grid lot trait:
- A new search term was added to Buy Mode, “Off the Grid”, to make finding valid items in the catalog easier.
- Fish can now be added to Fish Bowls.
- Sims can now clean dirty sinks that work Off the Grid
- In a Flash Photo Studio no longer emits light when placed on a lot with the Off the Grid lot trait.
The following objects now work Off the Grid and/or are labeled appropriately in the catalog:
All photography cameras
Sulani Volcanic BBQ Searer
NanoCan Touchless Trash Can
Wabbit Tablet, Slablet, and Digitalistic Sketchpad
Rocks of Fire and Roast'em and Toast'em Campfire from Outdoor Retreat
The Quadpod Grill from Toddler Stuff
Ole Timmy's WashTub from Laundry Day Stuff
Kiddie Pools from Seasons
To make caring for Pets easier the Petmate Programmatic Pet Feeder, Litter-Laser: Self-Cleaning Litter Box, and Litter-Matic Scoop Free are now battery powered

Thanks @GalacticGal , I was just wondering if this was one of those weird backdoors like the toddler can ask for a bath but the player selects the tub it’s blocked, meaning players interactions are affected but SIM actions are not blocked. I guess another question would be: Could they wash a counter if they decide themselves to do so? My SIM can’t afford a house yet so no counters right now.

I can use the washtub without a mod now. Victory!!
Ha ha, I have been griping a lot about laundry but Off the Grid made laundry fun for me. Maybe not my sims but for me it just turned interesting.
It has to be a little bit interesting to keep all the bars in the green and still having time to do things. And not too easy to get rich. Then I am happy. So when I was playing Off the Grid and had laundry on the lot it turned into a fun activity for me, maybe not for my little Jane but that it how sims-life in my little world. I like that there was one more everyday thing to get sorted, and that you really have to get down and do it yourself. Sweet!! With seasons it turned into a necessity to have sunny days every now and then in order to dry the laundry, ha ha one more limitation. Bought the weatherstation and turned it into a moneysink, she has to pay a fee in order to use it. Really happy that the strings can break so you have to mend or buy a new device to hang laundry on.
All in all, Seasons together with Off the Grid turned laundry from boring to fun.
