    Hover your mouse over walls papar and read the texts. Some walls papar have eco scores others don’t. Yea not very user friendly.

    Has anyone seen acid rain so far? It has rained in a polluted neighborhood but it was normal rain.

    I have a question for the people that have it! I am wondering to buy it! Should I or isn't it worth it?

    I guess up somewhere you have something like where you can choose packs and then select eco thingy if you mean that!

    I really like it. It's so different from any pack I've ever played!

    I have a question about the fizzy drinks. I've only made apple and blackberry drinks. They haven't tried them yet. Can you use more than just one kind of fruit to make a drink? I tried, but once I selected a fruit the rest went grey.

    Hi guys I purchased the eco living expansion pack, have joined the civil designer career and currently under the title Urban Surveyor - when I work from home it gives me 2 tasks - check the community board and Submit a Municipal Concept, when hovering over this task with the mouse, it says I can submit this concept to innovative solutions Corp by clicking on the mail box, but the only options when I click my mail box are Vote on neighbourhood action plans, Get Mail and Show Bill info... Please help, I have googled for hours and yet can find absolutely NOTHING about submitting a concept... I have the option when socialising with other sims to 'Present Concept' but it doesn't let me select it and says "concepts must be owned and can only be presented once".... What on earth does all of this mean???!!

    So I made one of my community lots a Marketplace, but I am unable to stock one of the market stall tables and sell stuff there myself. Is this even possible, or is a Marketplace only for buying stuff from other sims?

    Also how have you guys been making money by Fabricating? I'm living off the grid and I'm having trouble making enough money to buy water collectors and stuff by just making and selling candles from my inventory since they don't sell for that much.

    Okay so are these flies next to the pet poo new?? I saw someone on twitter noticing worms in the planters that I'd never seen before either? Even looked like the dog was wanting to play with the flies????????? Like 70% of my sims have dogs and I've never seen this before?

    @SophiesSims97 You first need to create the plan, probably on a computer or drafting tablet. That creates an item in your inventory that you need to submit.

    Get one of the sales tables, mark up the prices and have a yard sale. Candles at higher levels go for very high prices. Don't forget to lock your doors though. The patch notes said sims walking into your house during a sale is fixed, but it isn't.
    I haven't made a community lot into a market place yet, but I would assume you need to take your own table.

    Hello!!
    First ever forum post - sorry if there is a better thread for this??? I'd appreciate being pointed in that direction.... but, the first two patches went fine, and my pre-order of the pack downloaded when it became available in my region last night...
    But now, I came to try playing and have lost the ability to interact with items in the game. SOME items allow me to click them, but it takes ~5 seconds for the menu to pop up, and when I give a command it either doesn't even try to queue it up, or it queues it up and goes away immediately. :( Its basically being extremely unresponsive :(

    Note: my computer is not a laggy computer; and I do not have any mods or cc.
    Looking forward to seeing the light at the end of the tunnel where I can play again and actually try Eco Living out!!... :D
    Thank you,

    I visited Port Promise...and although my Sims started coughing, it didn't look smoggy at all. Is that just me? I wonder if I have some bug because when I played island Living, it didn't look that dirty at all.
    Do you have thick smog in your industrial footprint neighborhood?

    I'm awaiting the replies to this too as I don't know where to create a concept. I'll try the computer next.

    I am really struggling to make sense of the smog vacuum. Supposedly, you get it from submitting municipal concept blueprints. I keep submitting a slew of them (perfect quality) and all I get is some cash and work performance. Freegan sims benefit the most from cleaned up "free" stuff, but the smog vacuum is locked behind a career pathway... and freegan sims hate working. I'm really struggling with the logic of this....

    This! I don't get it either. That and the recycling trait are two things I don't really like so far.

    Question- is anyone's Eco footprint decaying in about a day? I successfully turned the industrial section into Green Healthy area but it only last about a day and then I'm back to natural (another day then I'm back to industrial). Is it supposed to change so quickly?

    Yes. This is one of my complaints about the pack. The industrial side dropped far too quickly for me. I hope they can fix this or at least there will be a mod to steady it a bit.

    This may be a really dumb question - How do you vote for community lot types? I have went to the board and they are greyed out :( Am I missing something obvious?

    I have had two townie come to my house like a welcome wagon and you have the option to ask about eco living. When you do they give you some influence points to start with.

    Hey, so I was trying to figure this out as well and was ready to give up lol. But, I think I figured it out. I found an Electronic Drafting Tablet in my sims inventory and when I clicked on it an option was to Draft Municipal Concept Blueprint. I think that this item was added to my inventory when my sim got promoted to Architectural Apprentice. Hope this helps!

    I'm not sure, but there is a hand-held thing like the rabbit tablet that came with this pack. Try using that. What else could it be for?

    The electronic drafting tablet!

    Can someone please tell me how to see the sky without switching to the Sims 3 camera. I did not play Sims 3, and every time I Google this it tells one to switch to the Sims 3 camera. How can I do this using the Sims 4 camera? Or, please direct me to a link that explains this. Thank you, :)
