New Build Options from The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Pack that Are Just Too Real

Bring out the eco-friendly in you with the new Sims 4 expansion pack—Eco Lifestyle. In this pack, you will experience a different environment that allows players to influence the world they live in, may it be positive or negative. Eco Lifestyle Pack contains essential things that can help you build toward that goal. All decisions your sim will make will contribute to the state of their world. So if you choose to recycle trash, this will help make their city a greener place. Otherwise, expect a filthy, polluted town for them.

You will also have exciting times fulfilling missions, such as diving into dumpsters for secondhand stuff and meals. There’s a fabricator that will help you create DIY furniture like floor lamps, beds, dressers, and tables. This is an excellent opportunity to have your sim progress from rags to riches. Apart from the awesome gameplay, this pack is full of build and buy options you will surely enjoy. The possibilities are endless. Here are some of the exciting options that you should expect:

Water Conservation and Renewable Energy

A big part of bringing the world to a better place is to reduce eco-footprint. In this pack, you can conserve water by getting a dew collector that harvests and filters water you can use in your garden and toilets. This pack also allows you to install solar panels to conserve electricity, lower bills, and help the environment.


What tiny home does not have a ladder? In this update, Maxis has added the option to have ladders instead of stairs in the house, not only for this pack but also for the base game. You can attach it to any floor, however high it might be. You can build a conservatory, a crane-like structure, or a rooftop accessed from the first floor—the possibilities are endless.
Doors, Walls, Windows, and Floorings

In this pack, you can build your house exactly like a shipping container, which is often an environmental-friendly option in real life. You can install a metal roof, walls, and doors for it to look authentic. Maxis also have created living roofs through grass textured roofs. This would help you improve the air quality in your home and the world as well.


Gone are the days when you used boring bins only for the trash. With the pack’s dumpsters, you can dive for furniture, money, and meals. Those loots can help fill your home and even your bank account.

The Sims 4 is slowly becoming too real. Maxis has never ceased to amaze all of us. They have gone above and beyond with their creations, from having a real fire department you can call when there’s a fire (you bet, they brought it back) to having the ability to convert your insect waste to biofuel. Maybe this is a sign. Maybe this is a wake-up call for us. Perhaps while playing this pack, you should remember to follow through on these green initiatives and help the environment in real life. Or maybe not—and simply enjoy the game.
