[NEEDS INPUT] [ECO] [DU] Water consumption fees in dorms

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All, including Eco Living
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim live in a dorm. Vote for water conservation in N.a.p
What happens when the bug occurs? It charges my sim $100 a day for excess water consumption.
What do you expect to see? The Sim lives in a dorm, water use between roommates can't be controlled. There is no way to monitor water use either. I don't feel the household should be burdened with water fees, when they don't pay utilities in a dorm.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Started after installing the Eco Living Expansion Pack. This didn't happen with the 6/3 patch.

After the sims voted for Water Conservation, and it took effect, my sim started getting charged a penalty fee of 100 Simoleons per day due to excess water use.  Because the sim lives in a dorm and doesn't pay, or is unable to view utility bills, I feel the charge is a bug that shouldn't be happening.

@Cryst0l19 Just to be sure, you didn't encounter any error codes in your game ?


What you describe sounds like it's probably a bug but the error codes seem to break dorms in a way that bills arrive so I wanted to be sure that's not it.

Happy Gaming
