I bought this expansion on sale and I seriously regret it. This is the worst one yet.. *everything* I have tried to do with it is broken.
1) The "sharing is caring" NAP is ridiculous. Fundamental items like counters randomly vanish from inside your home and you have no way of knowing who took them and no way to get them back. What is the point of that? It's not very "eco" for me to constantly be buying new furniture because someone randomly took off with mine.
2) My Freegan sim steals from HIMSELF
. He lives in an off the grid, volcanic lot in a remote area of Sulani. He does not leave this lot because he is constantly repairing his stuff and struggling to squeeze the land for enough money to pay his taxes. There are NO other houses or community lots nearby.
Yet, sometimes I get a pop up that says "___ has successfully swiped an item without drawing attention!"
What did he swipe? There is nothing in his inventory, nothing in the household inventory. Oh, joy, my own trashcan is missing. So I stole my own trashcan and vanished it into the ether.. now I need to buy a new one and he gets sad because we bought a new item. 🌺🌺🌺🌺.
3) Off the grid in general seems bjorked. I know this was a thing before eco life, but eco life made it more feasible to do. Except not, because I keep getting told that my house is out of power even though I have three wind turbines and NO items that should be using power. Does the off-grid shower use power? The candles? The bookshelf? Where the heck is the power going?!
3a) Also you can't feed your sim very well without a fridge, which sucks. I know there is an "off grid" fridge that you can put ice in.. but why do I have to have a fridge at all. If I'm growing my own fresh food, why can't I make salad with just a cooler and not a fridge?!
I've only been playing this expansion for two days. I'm afraid to see what else is completely broken the further I get into it.
Please fix this. You shouldn't release things like this!!
