Almost a year later and I am still having the same problem. It makes my saved game unplayable as the family I have lives off the grid and resorts to rummaging to make money and have food.

I created a new save early May 2021 after the April update, still having the problem.

I selected another family and sent them to Oasis Springs. The children can find toys, the adults cannot rummage.

I created another brand new save after the May 27, 2021 update and the adults still cannot rummage in public trashcans.

Since upgrading is a huge part of the game I prefer to send my sims to rummage for parts than to purchase them. I also like having glutton sims rummage for food, which helps when playing off the grid. This has been a problem since the Eco Lifestyle patch was released pre the pack sell date. I do not own Eco Lifestyle and I have no current plans of purchasing that pack.

 

I am really bummed that the new issue of dark skin hues displaying for light hued sims was resolved almost immediately and this issue is still outstanding.

 

I have stopped playing the game because everything I enjoy playing in the game breaks every time a new pack is released.

I do not own EL. Before this pack came out sims were able to rummage in the trash.

After one year since EL has come out my sims still cannot rummage in the trash. Children can rummage for toys, but sims cannot rummage for trash and gluttons cannot rummage for food.
