Ready for your Sims to impact their world? Move into a community of fellow collaborative makers in The Sims™ 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack!* Play to change and make a difference in the new world of Evergreen Harbor. Help your new neighbors decide on a Community Space Project, reduce your eco footprint, and watch your neighborhood transform. You’ll be surprised by what happens when your Sims start making the rules. KEY FEATURES Sustainable Living — Reduce, reuse, and recycle! Not only is it good for the environment, but it saves you Simoleons, too. Produce your own electricity and water with solar panels, wind turbines, and dew collectors, or grow your own food at home in a new vertical garden to really control your impact on the world. Take it a step further and see what you can scrounge up in the dumpster, whether it’s your next buggy treat or components for your next creation. Some of the items you collect, like dyes, bits and pieces, and certain ingredients, can even be used to craft goods like fizzy juices and candles for your online store.  Collaborative Community — Engage with your neighborhood through the new voting board, which features different Neighborhood Action Plans each week. Whether Sims want to encourage physical activity or require that everyone own a recycler, everyone in the community has a voice. Your vote matters! If your Sim is not campaigning, have them explore being a civil designer where they advocate for making your neighborhood a better place. In this community, building relationships with your local crafters, activists, and technicians might get you a little extra help when you need it or inspire your Sims to start giving back themselves! Change the World — Settle your Sim into a neighborhood and watch it transform around you. Every decision you make—what power sources you rely on, how you design your home, and which Neighborhood Action Plans you vote for—influences the state of the world, from smoggy skies to crystal-clear water. If you don’t take action, you might see nature retreat as junk accumulates around town. On the other hand, buildings bloom with more flora and green when trash is picked up and lots are kept clean. The more you pitch in, the more likely you are to catch a shimmering aurora borealis in the sky above your Sims! Upcycled Decor — Your Sims will find a lot more than expected if they’re brave enough to go dumpster diving. Need to outfit a starter house on a budget? Do it basically for free by fishing out a few pre-used items like a worn-out mattress you can fix or a lightly singed oven you can shine up. Even new furniture and clothes are sustainably made from reclaimed materials for a fabulous look! Repurpose fabric, technology, and many other objects to decorate your home and fill out your wardrobe. After all, upcycling initiatives are the height of style.
