    Am i the only one who thought “functional while off the grid” meant off the build grid? Like if i were to moo-ve an item in a position where it didnt fit on the grid like it normally?

        Just finished watching this, and while it looks like a more nature-centric Sim lives here, you can totally put the laptop in off the grid.

        -- Ooh also, you could totally swing a storage area above that bathroom. A couple of the "crates a million" crates up there would be awesome with the off the grid lifestyle.

              I'm _assuming_ they're referring to hot cereal, or, as it's called nowadays, oatmeal...but you can still make oatmeal without a microwave, you just do it on the stove, so...?

                    i have an off the grid cabin irl so i was excited to see this in the sims too (recreated it in the sims) but i am sorely disappointed with the lack of renewable energy options, water tanks and the general inconsistency(why cant i clean and refill the wash tub) i hope they fix it with a patch

                      That's weird that they didn't make an icebox or propane fridge and a wood-stove. Those are both readily available for off-grid living. Or they could have made it so you could dig a root cellar and that it would keep foods cold, although the programming would probably be more difficult. Anyway... nice little house, James.

                            That looks awesome. Maybe on top of the bathroom with that fencing, it could have been storage with some boxes etc.

                                  I wonder how you rotate the objects :/

                                    Is it me or does bb.moveobjects not work how it used to? Whenever I apply that cheat, objects do NOT move as smoothly as they do in all these speed builds I watch. Clutter items in particular still seem stuck to the grid.

                                      Although it's not gonna function but you could put a tub or basin above the bathroom to look like a water tank

                                        How do you make a sim love living OTG? My sims hate it when it comes to washing hands and bathing.

                                          You should not have a dog, because they will ask to go for a walk, and because its and Island they can not go for a walk, so I gave the dog away to a different family. They did not think at all when they made Off the Grid. The main thing if you want to live that way, your satisfied with your life, but they have the person complaining every time they wear clothing that they washed and dried on the line, Also they should have made new toilets and not just use anything we already had, they did not even add solar power. shame on them for not trying. I really want to play and off the grid but not this one until they fix it, I will just say its broken.

                                            I like how James eventually discussed grid parity or how you get paid if you use alternative energy, you get paid back XD SIMS 4: SUSTAINABLE LIVING would be nice, yeah?

                                                    I continuously see Semaj (and other Sims4-YouTubers) turn stuff they place just a tiny bit instead of how it snaps to the building grid… How do they actually do it??? Like how Semaj just slightly turns the 2nd torch he places in the beginning of the video... can anyone tell me how to do that???

                                                        I only have played the first. The other I only have seen videos of, but this kinda takes me bakc to the old days. :p
                                                        Maybe in a while I will try to start playing it again...

I thought the laundry pack was going to include solar panels and environmentally friendly items, I would be down for a stuff pack like that. Now that they've expanded what they put in stuff packs, game play wise, it wouldn't be far fetched to think they could add more game play focused items in an off grid, eco pack, which again I thought laundry day stuff was going to be.
