The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle is another official expansion to the fourth part of the extremely popular life simulator. It focuses on leading an ecological lifestyle in a town called Evergreen Harbour. EA Maxis studio, which has been responsible for The Sims series since the beginning, is responsible for preparing this add-on.
Eco Lifestyle is a classic add-on to The Sims 4. The action takes place in Evergreen Harbour, where we try to lead an ecological life, encouraging other Sims to join him. The decisions and activity of the player influence the appearance of the town. In order to improve the situation, we carry out ambitious environmental projects to improve the quality and purity of water or reduce bills by building wind turbines or solar panels, and we work for environmental protection.
The aim of the game in the Eco Lifestyle is to strive for ecological transformation of the town. Sims should follow the principles of reducing consumption, recycling and utilisation. What's more, they can, among other things, cultivate vertical gardens, produce healthy food, remove rubbish from the streets and lawns, and then creatively transform it into new, useful objects. An important part of the game is also active participation in local voting and encouraging neighbors to recycle and volunteer ecological work.
This add-on offers a set of new locations that change according to Sims' activities, subjects, and theme-related activities.
Like The Sims 4, the Eco Lifestyle add-on only allows to play in single-player mode.
It's not a stand-alone expansion. This means that it requires a basic version of The Sims 4 to work.
